Well, first of all, when I walked into the shop tonight I was greeted with hoots and hollers from the Minions and a "Hey! Wide Load's back!" from the skellie's section of the shop. I pretended to ignore them and went about my business digging out a piece of stripwood and glue and paint. "She's going to make something! Woo! Hoo!" I think that one actually came from the Quilt Shop...So I started giggling and they all knew I was indeed back! Since it's down to 15 degrees outside and we turn our heat down to 59 at night...yup, that's not a typo; I turned up my little heater in the shop

So much news to tell! Remember my last post where I was getting ready for a visit from my daughter and her 7 children? We had a great time and took the camper to see my son Caleb and his family and then a trip to the beach. We were hoping that they would decide to come here to Tennessee to live. Our daughter and our 7 grandchildren enjoyed the weather here and our company (of course...LOL!) and then went back to Wyoming. It wasn't too long after that our daughter made the decision to move here! It was a whirlwind time of looking at homes and we found one that we all agreed was perfect. They moved here in the middle of the remodeling and we have been busy almost every weekend turning it into a home they can love for a long time. We took this weekend off and I started thinking about my shop again. So on Friday when I was headed out to the local Dollar General, Mr. Skellie asked if he could go along. "Okay" I said, "But don't be begging for everything while we're there!" He promised to be good and did very well...he didn't even make a wide load comment when I picked up a box of Ding Dongs...But, like when you take children to the store, it can be that checkout line where the real challenge begins. Mr. Skellie saw a small display of miniature arcade games and started to reminisce about the old days hanging out at the arcade with a handful of quarters. I tried to ignore him but I could see the longing in his eye sockets and I haven't been real attentive lately....so I caved. I told him to pick out one and he chose Pac Man.
