Well, I’ve been a neglectful blogger of late. I finally got my computer back yesterday but I haven’t been able to steal away time to work on any of my numerous projects. I’m still knitting away like a madwoman and trying to bake cookies for gifts and keep up with everything else in my life. There is the definite possibility that Christmas cards will not get sent out this year….I have never missed a year yet but I fear that time is running out and I must prioritize….
was my grandfather’s birthday. He would have been 93 if he were still around. He died when I was 13 but I can still hear what he sounded like when he’d sing On The Good Ship Lollipop to me. He held many jobs in his life including being a cable car grip man, baker and a hod carrier (I’m still not sure exactly what hod is….). He was truly and unabashedly in love with my grandma and would bring her breakfast in bed, sing to her, and write her poems.
