And this might be an example of how sometimes a generic does not work as well as the brand name.

So sorry that you had to go through this, Viola.

My daughter says the same!  She has one that the generic just doesn’t work!

My endocrinologist told me to always insist on getting Synthroid as the pill for my thyroid replacement and not the generic because the generic can vary so much "from one boxcar to another". My eyebrows really went up when he said that.  flushed

So I picked up a shift on Sunday (Juneteenth--holiday pay). I called home the day after and my dad answered, asking what I'd been doing. I told him I picked up work, and he said, "Oh, well happy father's day" and hung up. A couple years ago I called him to wish him happy father's day and he told me I was lazy. I do not call him for that anymore. He's a jerk. :(

Any one interested in a quilt top made of signature swap blocks from one of our retreats long ago?

bobbi took these at retreat from Denise’s stash and put them together and returned it to me.   I would send it to anyone who would like to have it!

sounds like he needs to go to training.

do you kennel him? maybe a kennel in your sewing room where he can see you but not mess with anything??

or at least train him to stay on his bed?

My younger daughter got a job as a lab aide making just enough to have enough. About 4 months in she got a call from a recruiter for a job as a microbiologist for a different company. I encouraged her to just check it out. Long story short she got an amazing job making more than twice the first job in industry. When she explained it to her current supervisor the lady understood and wished her well.

Wow Ami!  That is just terrific for her.  I bet she was very encouraged and I trust properly proud of being recognized for doing well and developing a good reputation for her work.  Congratulations to her!!!

Yay for you for finding your long lost sewing items!!  That is a good but a funny feeling!  When I do that I wonder was it the mischievous Judy who did that?

Under the heading of "small world", I was reading through DD's offer letter.  Got to the bottom and read the name of the HR person.  She used to work for me as a gift certificate clerk 17 years ago.  

How delightful to discover that!  I'm sure that doubly confirmed her offer to DD!
