So, this is a special blog. One where you get to listen to me whine.........I WANT TO GO TO SAFF!!!!!!!! So does hubby and we are STUCK this weekend because we are doing something with our neighbors on Saturday. Don't get me wrong, we WANT to go with our neighbors to their son's birthday celebration in Suchess (N. GA) because we LOVE Winn (their son). Winn is a great guy who has built his entire house himself up there in the hills of GA. He's very earthy and just a super nice guy and one hell of a musician. I'll have some pics for ya after the weekend.
HOWEVER, does it have to be the same weekend as SAFF?!?!?! If I had known about SAFF beforehand, I would have never accepted the invitation. AND we are driving our elderly neighbors up there and back so there can't be any of this "Well, let's go stay in Asheville for a day or two and then we will just drive to N.GA and meet them". DAMMIT!!! Ugh....double dammit!!!!
SO, I assume that SAFF is the same time, same place next year???? Yes???? If so, I'm booked for the weekend and will not allow any birthday plans to interfere no matter how much we like someone. We'll visit them on another weekend. Surely most people are like me and celebrate their birthday for an entire month, right?? That goes for birthday celebrations, funerals, weddings, births, graduations, work bull-shit, hoe-downs, alien invasions, child interferences, nobel prize winning, whatever! Sorry, I'm BOOKED!

We got some fall decorations for the front.
Everything I do is under the watchful eye of Ponce as you can see.
I may have overdone it on the bags..................
Hey! I don't think a single one of them was over $3! You can always use bags, right??
Remember that pic of Mr. Man I promised you modeling my crochet hat? Well, here it is.......
That's right, just the hat. Typical. See that wad of green yarn in the background? Ponce did that when we first got him. I yelled at him big time and then the next day we took him to be neutered. He hasn't touched a ball of yarn since.
I was going to try to wind it but it is beyond help. For some reason I simply can't bring myself to get rid of it...........seriously, I think I have a problem (or two).

Then we stopped at Berry College in Rome and took these pics. If you have never been to Berry College and you live in GA or nearby you should go!! It is an absolutely AMAZING campus!!
Aren't the deer SO cute????? Now we are happy to be home with our pets who are feeling neglected from the past few days of parent traveling.

Refer a Nurse to Children's and Get Big Money
Children's is not just growing in mortar and bricks, but in people as well. You can be a part of bringing great people to Children's.
Recent research shows that employees hired as a result of an employee referral stay longer and are happier employees. This year, almost 50 percent of Children's hires have come from employee referrals. Have you helped expand the Children's team?
Know an experienced nurse who will cover night shifts? Know someone who knows a nurse? If you do, you can cash in for the success of Children's. For a limited time, Children's is offering a $10,000 referral bonus for anyone who refers an experienced nurse hired to cover night shifts. The requirements for the nursing candidate are:
Candidate must be an experienced Registered Nurse (1 or more years of experience)
Candidate can be hired to work all nights or a combination of day-night rotating shifts
Have a minimum of an Associates degree and a Georgia RN license - or eligibility for Georgia license
This special offer of a $10,000 Referral bonus is good until the end of the year.
You can earn from $500 - $3000 for all other referrals.
Well, I guess I had plenty to type afterall. Hmmmm......what a surprise.......

Not too shabby, eh?????
We are getting it for $275 from someone who bought it and just hasn't really used it because she has 3 other spinning wheels. It's an Ashford Traditional with a walnut finish. We are excited!!!

Know what my favorite part about knitting socks is?? Kitchener! I know, I'm a weirdo but I just love it and I love how perfectly it finishes the sock!
Here's Slim sleeping on top of my knitting stuff with said sock before it was finished. I know it looks like a DPN is poking him in the nose but really, he appears extreemly comfortable.

We found a woman who is selling her Ashford wheel that she has had for 6 months and never even touched! I guess she thought it was something she wanted to learn but just never got around to it. She is selling it for $275 so we are pretty excited about that. The only problem? She is in another state so I guess we will need to get her to ship it to us.
I looked at Knitch for a book - no luck. I looked on Amazon for a book and just didn't really see anything that looked like it was worth the shipping price. SOOOOOOO - help me out!! Much appreciated!!!
