All of a sudden there is a .........

There is on my crochet pages, a huge amount of people making Angry Bird things, hats, toys...I do no know of these Angry Birds, why are they angry? Are they hungry? Should we be offering up some crackers, or day old bread for these said birds? When I was younger there was that BIRDS movie, it was very scary, these birds I see made up are not scary looking at all, just oh a bit angry? Why is this, I must go and find out about these poor angry birds....does the aviation society know of all these mad birds? I must investigate.

Yes I am STILL working on this Afghan oh my!

This one is a yarn EATER and it takes its toll on your fingers after about an hour I must set it aside for a bit and then pick it up again. I need to finish it, and am in need of crocheting 16 inches to have it complete here is a picture for you to enjoy

Well where have I been?

Okay so they found Dr Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter, I don't have an opinion on this, its wishy washy is what I think. But then again, my opinion doesn't matter. Haha

Today the Micheal Jackson Jury will debate

Yes indeed, we are on verdict watch. Being a health care provider I do not see how they can come up with anything else but guilty. I also feel Dr. Murray is undercharged. We ALL take an oath, especially doctors. He failed Micheal and he failed Medical Science. Shame is on him. The GREAT judge is our Lord. So he will face TWO judges and jury's the LORDS being the most important. Well I need to hit the shower and get packed for the weekend.

Taaaaaaaaaaaaa Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa its done!!

Made with Red Heart Shimmer, here is the long awaited finished Christening set..enjoy
