  • Christmas Humour

    I have been married since 1979. It is remarkable that my wife could last that long.
    One of the secrets to a long lasting marriage is to give your spouse what they ask for.
    This year I asked Nadine what she would like for Christmas.
    Since we are going on a cruise to Mexico in January she told me she would like a light housecoat.

    Never being one to miss an opportunity to please my wife I searched high and low. Not the easiest thing to find this time of year. So I did the next best thing I made her one!

    I actually did find one and bought it, along with some sparkly jewelry. You can't go wrong with sparklies.

    ps yes I know I put the sleeves on the wrong side and they look upside down!

      What size blades did you use?

      There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        .. and what's the best finish to use on housecoats?

        You're obviously a man of many talents, Carl.

          I've heard some people say that scrolling is like using a sewing tell us, Carl, is using a sewing machine like scrolling?

          It must be because you did a fantastic job!

            So Carl, did you think you got a model that would only last for 10 years before she would wear out? Have you had to replace any parts yet? If so, which ones?

              Carl, that is quite the "lighthouse coat". Do they have lighthouses in Mexico?

              Bob, I did a little sewing a few years ago and I and when I was scrolling the other night I did have the impression that it was similar.

                  Too funny Carl.

                  I'm crying from laughing so hard. I hope she has a great sense of humor, but something tells me that being married to you she would have to have one.

                  You must tell us what her reaction is.

                  Too funny.

                        Confession time

                        I did not sew it, although I can sew, I made it at work this morning in 20 minutes using glue sticks.

                        It is also very small maybe big enough for a todler. I only used 1/2 yard of fabric

                        Nadine will love it..she is a great wife. I could wrap an old dinner napkin and she would think it was a gift of love.
                        I am pretty lucky.

He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                          When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                          I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
