I (we) was (were) out and about over the past couple of days. BJ needed some stuff to make a doily ( y'know, akin to knit but you crochet them - small round things - she is making some to give away to her quilt guild people who have Featherweight Sewing Machines - no proper thread in Corsicana so we drove to find some ). Being round and about the area, I saw a couple of things. Only a couple caught my eye.
At the Half Price Bookstore, they had a deck of playing cards for the Steam Punk crowd. I thought of nephew Steve, but bought none. If we were doing Christmas presents or a family grabbag, I know what to buy.
In two different stores I ran across a 2015 Wall calendar titled SHAKE. Each month has a photo of a different dog as it shakes. I bought one of these for our house. When you see something that makes you laugh, buy it. Of all of our dogs, Greta is our biggest shaker. Whenever she gets up, you can see the shake start at the tip of her tail and move up to the nose. So cute. Great calendar; look for it in your local calendar store. I did.
Family knows; others may not. My oldest granddaughter is in the Frenship H.S. marching band. They have gone through Regional and Area competition to advance to the UIL 6A marching contest. I am excited for her. Roger's family seems to be ready to cheer the band on. Here's hoping they do well at State next week and bring home an enormous trophy. So, one more Metze is into the band world again. I hope she continues to enjoy the experience and has a great time. I know I did. The "Circle of Life" as we band directors like to say.
This has been part 1. Part 2 will follow soon. Part 2 is completely unrelated to Part 1. I just want to create anticipation.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
