What we also found quite amusing is that you can buy clothing AND apparel - at the same store! Wow! What a great concept. Now Bonnie and I always thought clothing and apparel were the same thing - guess we were a litte confused about that.

This morning it is the Frito Bandito song...
Ai, yi, yi, yaaaa,
I am the Frito Bandito.
I like Frito's Corn Chips,
I love them I do
I want Frito's Corn Chips,
I'll get them from you.
Where in the world did that come from? Somewhere way, way back in the 1960s section of my cerebrum. Thinking of this song also took me back to the 2nd grade. All of my classmates had the Frito Bandito eraser. By golly, I wanted one of those SO BAD ! I especially wanted the yellow one for some reason. I think they came in blue, red and yellow and green.
I never got one though - I just had to sit in the classroom with envy and watch all the other 7 year olds with their little Frito Banditos sitting there on the tops of their pencils. Ai, yi, yi, yaaaa

Do you see the skull and crossbones?
How about now?

WIM = Works In Mind are the projects that are on your "to do" list. These are the things you probably already have the pattern for and in some cases have even bought the associated yarn to complete it. Sometimes it is just things hanging in the back of your mind.
I have several WIMs - a ribbon scarf, a purse, a baby afghan, a ballband dishcloth (well there are few dishcloths I have in mind actually) and a cross-stitch project.
WIP = Works in Progress are projects that you have actually started. I try and usually I only have one WIP at a time. But, right now I have too many going on. Until yesterday, I had a feather & fan dishcloth in progress, two scarfs, a cross stitch project, a crochet afghan and a knit afghan. The knit afghan is part of a Knit-A-Long (KAL) and basically I only knit a few squares a month and will join into one afghan at the end of the year. That will be an on-going project this year.
However, I can do something about the other ones that are started but not completed. So, other than the knit squares, I decided that it is time I finish all of my WIPs before they totally get out of control.
So, here is the first one. It is a Feather & Fan Dishcloth. It was a little scary for me at first because it is the first thing I made that wasn't your basic knit and purl - it had decreases and yarn overs but really, it wasn't that hard. I'm happy to say that I have one WIP done with 4 more to go.

Once you've had a special dog in your life and you are the only person responsible for his protection and care, you form a bond that can never be broken.
You and your dog love each other, unconditionally, and you would do anything for his happiness and well-being.
There is so much in this book that I could relate to, there were times when I was smiling and times when I was crying. I received this book as a Christmas gift and I was a little nervous about reading it (although I wanted it) because I was afraid of the emotions it would stir up.
It did stir up some bad memories, but it also stirred up some good ones too. Anyone that has ever had a dog as a member of their family will be able to relate to this book.
