One of these men, is a knitter.
That would be Zach, as you know. He has made a scarf. He knows he CAN knit. He leaves for college on saturday. We are so excited for him. I hope he knits at school. (DOUBTFUL!) He wants a hat in his school colors. I have to get going on that.
The other man is my father. His mother was an excellent knitter. My father is having his back procedure/injection today so he could use your thoughts and prayers. He worked for W. Clement Stone for over 50 years. Mr. Stone promoted the Power of Postive Thinking and PMA. Postivie mental attitude.
Whenever we struggled my father would stop us and say or demand rather "WHERE IS YOUR PMA?" His liscence plate said PMA.
So please Think great positive thoughts for my dad today. I KNow you are all good for it.
So I have to blog despite my grief because the blog is a safe and happy place for me. Huck would want me to be blogging.
I am able to breathe a bit easier because we may get his ashes back today. I cannot wait to have him in some physical way again. In our home. Near me.
My knit girlfriends and I met at a bar yesterday. It was like a wake for Huck. It was eleven a.m. and they ordered bloody mary's and things with a vodka called Grey Goose. And IM the one who lost the dog! They crack me up. I did have a glass of wine and we toasted Hucky. They had me laughing and crying and it was absolutely wonderful. We even knitted.
You all are taking such good care of me. Thanks. Oh and Lesley made this incredible chocolate zucchini bread for each of us. Lesley are you SURE there is zucchini in it? It is the densest most wonderully chocolate bread I have ever eaten. We call it healthy bread. All those antioxidants and Zucchini to boot!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
