OMG....sitting here having breakfast and three businessmen in the next booth are bitching about the Gay Pride celebration at the fairgrounds this weekend and the drag show Friday night at the Washington pavilion....apparantly only straight people pay taxes????

" This is Sioux Falls, a wholesome town"...... "can you believe Wells Fargo sponsored the stage set-up... And even advertised" " there was even an article in the paper..." "our taxes support that venue..."

Can someone please enlighten these baby-boomer morons that the mousetrap just snapped, and they are the captives. Gay Pride is not about conversion, cross dressing, or staying in the closet is about
...please gentlemen...please....repeat you anger and disgust all day, we need more people to know we are here and not going anywhere soon!!!! We did our job, now be our apostles and spread the word that gays exist in wholesome Sioux Falls, South Dakota!

Off to Wells Fargo to open an account! And then to work so I can pay more taxes! But as I go ....remember....

Today I cry for misinformed, because the misunderstood are far better off.

And you can quote me.

Heheheeee another score...

Went to the fabric store to buy a pressie for a friend, then looked through the sale rack, the 100%cotton acid green fabric I love at $10/yd was on the table, so checked the price...$1 per yard, bought all they had and at check out the 40 percent coupon made it 60 cents per yard....SWEET!
Bacause it is a solid it will get some surface design before it goes into anything...I need a vacation just to play with all mt scores from the past couple weeks.

I feel so macho... And make pretty things still!

The past 3 weekends have been studies in home improvement.

2 weekends ago , I decided to replace the water hoses on the washer and that was ever so much fun....the space for the pipe wrench was just too tight to get any leverage so I got to talk shop with the hardware guy and bought channel lock pliers...with a lifetime guarantee, I wonder what happens if I lose them...because that is what will happen if anything.

Last weekend I fixed the handiquilter frame, it was a study in plexiglass glue, nuts and bolts, drill bits and c-clamps.....fortunately Luke had taught me all this stuff through the years. And no matter how bright the hardware guy seemed to be after two drill bits not being the right size, I took my knitting needle sizing gauge and worked from there.

This weekend, I decided that the area under the deck need sprucing up. It sets 7 feet above the ground, and gets enough sun for a garden. I had wanted to create a lush garden of grasses and flowers, but couldn't get to it earlier this year because of job demands. I decided instead to colorize with mulch and a few foliage plants.....I got a
Chinese maple, and the best part is it was a stray growing in the far back of the yard, so I replanted it between my deck and the neighbor's. Also placed three verdigris cone sculptures among the mulch and plants, From the lower bedroom and den you can look out at this serene setting. It isn't quite zen-like, but would have been had I thought a bit harder about it...
Demn...I coulda used sand. Well maybe next weekend....NAW, next year maybe....

why do you keep all this shit!

one of my co-workers thinks i should clean my office more often...i just did and got a reward....

i was sorting through packages  that have been on my shelves for a few months...umm years.   one was from a major retailer  from 2008 with a Christmas stocking, a scarf and a gift card...Score!!!!

i am going to buy myself something special. what scares me is that i get a gift from them every year...hopefully  there are more from 2009 and 2010,,,this place may be a gold mine....

yea for the major retailer!
and yea for clean offices!
