Still Popular, After All These Years!

I was *thrilled* last week to receive my Mary Maxim catalogue and discover, to my GREAT delight, there on the COVER (!!!) NOW BEING ADVERTIZED FOR SALE AS A KIT for only $70 through a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ENTITY . . . .

MY $10,000 PRIZE-WINNING CATHEDRAL WINDOW AFGHAN!!!!



(My only regret is that folks seem to think the original color scheme isn't "good enough" for a "Modern" audience, and have chosen all shades of purple. Well, in their defense, it *IS* deucedly difficult to FIND yarn that looks like sunshine through centuries old stained glass!)

Which do YOU prefer?

"Apologia"

I have been told that I have strayed from the original purpose of this blog, which was to "Rejoice in my posterity.'

I have strayed into politics, and interesting U-Tube videos, and cartoons, and other things that have nothing whatsoever to do with my posterity.

In my defense, I wish to point out that my posterity has strayed away from blogging to Facebook, and everything of interest seems to happen there these days! Hence, MY BLOG has become, more and more, a place for me to observe the world around me, and comment on it, hopefully for the betterment of my posterity.

Hence, the new subtitle.

It began as a way for me to keep up with my posterity; it is now a way for my posterity to keep in touch with me, and for me to keep a record for future generations of the great and momentous happenings of my days.

And if that's not good enough . . . you can get your own Blog!!!

Simply Beautiful
