My new Sock golden retrievers from ieLynn

Eye spy......
Irisheyes Lynn also gave me these golden retriever sock goodies. Huckie is trying to fool you , see him?

A couple of things:

I have not succumbed to the CUBS win streak at all. I pity the fools who are getting all caught up in it. Nope, still not a Cub fan anymore. If I have to pick a team in their division, its Milwaukee that I'll hope for.

Ive been tagged. Enough said. I think I'm ready. In honor of Husband cyclist I choose a Broken Rib Dish Rag pattern. Waiting for the box! I have to work 12 hours tomorrow......has anyone ever tried those super caffeine colas? I'd ingest it in the name of the team....

Finally, a little contest. My friend Jody reminded me on my quest for portion control and balance in life in general that: "More than enough is a feast." It is her favorite quote.

Quick be the first to tell me who originally said this. You win a little prizey!

OK - a bit of googling says that it comes from:
The Association Review
By American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf and here is the webpage to prove it:

Ha! Well I was gonna say Mary Poppins until I saw Elaine's comment!

Irisheyes Lynn said...

I was going to say Mary Poppins too!

I thought it was Mary Poppins too.
I have never tried the high octane colas, but even the caffeine in a code red mt dew makes my heart race, so I am afraid to try the other ones. Good luck with your cloth, I am sure you will do fine.
Love your sock blockers, they are almost as pretty as Huck.

AWWW!!! I see his little eyes! SO DANG CUTE! (Both! The Pup and the cool sock blockers.)

Me again - by the way, the book I cited was published in 1900 - pretty interesting once you read the context of the quote.

I personally would relate it to stash building. Never would have thought of Mary Poppins - thought it was someone's husband talking about their stash.

The sock-blockers are fab and the eyes make it absolutely perfect, by the way.

I Spy With My Little Eye...Huck! Great blockers...great picture. Two postcards on their way to you as I type!

Hi Yet again,

I'm feeling so so so tacky but not tacky enough to not post this.

I'm leaving town and may or may not have any internet access for 2 weeks. Here I am a lurker, I jump in with the answer to your question since you mention the 5 letter word (prize).

So, in case there really was a prize and I'm the winner, I won't be able to get in touch with you for maybe as much as 2 weeks. I looked all over for a way to e-mail you be alas.

Anyway, you have a great blog you 3. I really do enjoy it. I wish I could manage mine as well or had a couple of partners to help.
