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!

Happy to hear that DJ is adjusting to Huntsville and now has the company of a puppy.  He's cute but they can limit your freedom.  Did you have pets when he was young or is this his first experience?  Merlin is a cute.  Does he know how big he will get?

We did get a puppy when DJ was beginning Kindergarten and she grew old with us until he left for his last two years of college.  He's wanted a dog ever since but being in the apartment on campus that wasn't passible.  So he was able to get one when he got settled into his new place and stable there.  Merlin has cramped his social calendar a bit but now that he is done with all of his shots DJ is able to take him out into the community more.

Merlin's last Vet visit was a couple of weeks ago and weighed in at 35lbs.  Today DJ thinks he might be closer to 40.  He think's he'll be a medium sized dog about 50-60 lbs?  Here's a picture from this week.

 Here they were watching a movie!

Oh Ellen!  I'm sorry Covid got you all so you couldn't attend the family reunion.  How disappointing!  I hope you all are past it by now.
