  1. I want to lie under your tree all day - cannot do that in Fl

    1. You must use the teleporter that is for bloggers only, sandyland. *winks* Thanks for your nice comment.

  2. The names and movements don't always seem to match. I still remember how to signal out the car window if my blinkers broke. Do they still teach that?

    1. There are several systems, Colleen, and some of them are quite old. This is for ship to ship, I believe, but don't quote me. heehee
      I'm not sure about left/right signals for driving. but they were required the last test I had when I was about 65.

  3. I am glad you are finding your knitting again, and that it helps. Thumbs up for that.

  4. Thank you CountryDew, I've decided, almost, to lock the backdoor blog again, and just let it all rest, like Ron. But this is just so bad!
    BTW, your new header is so beautiful.

  5. Ha! Cute! Took me a minute, but I finally got it. I wish I could knit. I tried to make a baby blanket once. I worked on it for like 4 months and then gave up because I was only halfway finished. LOL!

  6. If you still have it, go for it. I've been knitting an Aran Sweater that I started right at the turn of the century, I think.. maybe even longer than that! Have to check Ravelry. lol
    I love those little flags. It's like another language.
