April Was Totally Useless

Can I get an Amen to that post title? I did NOT get the house dusted. There is dog hair covering my floor. The kitchen floor is spotted with who-knows-what and the bathroom mirrors...well, that must be toothpaste. Useless, except for stitching! Woo...just check out this ORT jar:

Stuffed, I tell you! I'm gonna have to start packing these threads down. April was a great stitching month, all-in-all. I'm really enjoying this design. Have you guessed what it is yet?

This is Sisters & Best Friends' Fruit Salad Sampler "Pear."

I know Erin was the first to guess it correctly! I will have to send her a little treat for being so clever.


We want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your April 29th TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.

Saturday Fun & Games

Dash and I should have stayed home yesterday and "got stuff done" instead of spending the day playing. The lawn needs mowing, carpet vacuumed, bed linens washed and the dust must be appalling but I'm too scared to look. The next two weekends are going to be crazy busy so we really should have done our chores but a little sweetie named Kelsey has leukemia and we wanted to help her family.

Our day started early with a quick bite to eat before riding to Yale, Oklahoma to buy our entry into the Poker run. We chatted with other bikers and met up with our friend Brian before we were off to Cushing, OK to draw our first card. I only then remembered to take some photos...

Our bike in front, Brian's behind.

I drew a 6 of Clubs.

Wasn't it gorgeous? You can just get a glimpse of Brian in our side mirror, behind us. We don't know the people in front of us, just other riders on the run.

The above photo was taken right after the Stone Wolf Casino stop. We were making good time so we went into the casino for a cold beer. Dash handed me $20 to play slots while he and Brian chatted. I cashed out at $56 so I was tickled.

Lots of riders. I heard there were 133.

I had a really good chance before I drew that dratted Heart! Oh well, this was a "for a good cause" event so even if I had won something I would have donated it to the family. The fun was in the ride and the fellowship. And that yummy brisket sandwich we were given for lunch!

Let's Play Frisbee!

Miss Molly has been on a diet/exercise program. Being stuck inside all winter because of nasty weather and two clueless owners refilling a dog dish whenever it was empty...little miss Molly was becoming a bit of a sausage dog! When her collar got tight, I started measuring out her kibble and reducing the amount. Now that the weather is (mostly) cooperating we have been going out several times a day to play fetch. Molly loves to fetch! She will play until she is exhausted but I try to limit our time to a heavy, happy pant. She will dash back to the house if I ask if she wants to go get a drink. Once inside she will collapse in a blissful heap on the cool floor, or if it was particularly hot, in front of the fan. Five seconds after cooling off, she is pestering me to go out again.

A quick video so you can see how slim she is getting. Her muscles are hard as rocks. Apologies, it's hard to throw a Frisbee and hold the phone at the same time...and it was windy so the video is noisy and the floppy, rubber disk we play with is hard to aim when it's windy! And neveryoumind my accent.
