What a day...

It was not a great day for me today. Sorry about posting so late. I was informed today that the bike run for the "Rockin-Noggins hat drive" would have to be put on hold till next riding season. It was a real bummer for me. I was looking forward to it, oh well there's always next year. :) If I had tried to plan this a little earlier in the motorcycle season I might have been able to pull this off. So, until next season, I will continue to make hats. I am still collecting hats if anyone would like to donate. (Leave an e-mail address in my comments section and I will get back to you with a snail-mail address) I will be collecting them till November 12th and will be distributed to the Vetrans Hospital before Thanksgiving. Any hats collected after that will be held till the run next year.

I would like to wish Carol from (AK) a speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope so much that you will soon be able to return to your family. Please get well soon.

I recently discovered books on tape (or CD). Of course I had heard about them some time ago but never thought twice about them. Then not long ago someone said they listen to them while they knit. Then it hit me, DUH!!! Why not. Boy is it great. I listen to them all the time now. While knitting, doing housework or whenever I can. It sure does beat rotting your brain with all that t.v. watching. The best part is if you miss part of it you can rewind and catch what you missed. Try that with regular t.v.! Today I bought "Priestess of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley (on tape). I can't wait to start this one. A while ago I read her book "The Mists of Avalon" I thought it was very good. Right now I am listening to, "Atlantis Found" by Clive Cussler . It's not usually the type of story I'm interested in but it's pretty good. I think I'm hooked. Any suggestions for what to read next? Please let me know.

Books on Tape are great to listen to while knitting! Check out local libraries - they have lots of books on tape available. I find that the Cleveland Public Library system has a little bit better selection than the Cuyahoga County System - but both are pretty good (and at a great price!). The one problem with the library tapes is that often they malfunction since they get so much use, but it's worth a try. Also, there is It's not too expensive and you can get up to two books a month for the subscription price. The books are downloaded to an mp3 player (or "audible" player) or to your PC - this is a nice way to listen, because you can get a couple of hours onto the player - no changing of tapes and ultimate portability!!
