New Friends

I just never know who will walk through the door next.  This morning I was running through all the characters, and I do mean "characters" who stop by the shop.  Linda and I have re-named a few, for example.... That Pat, Zumba Kim, Little Becky and some others stand alone...Jane, Ki i i i m, and Susan.  We even have nicknames, Linney and DeDi.  Why do we do that?  Re-name people?  Perhaps because they have eeked out a special place in our heart.  They have brought something to our lives that no one else could.  Friends are gifts and we appreciate them, love them.  I look forward to coming to the yarn shop just to see who will walk through our door next.  Today it was Jill, a new friend.  We can never have too many friends.

Wish I had remembered my gloves

I was right......freezing.  It took us 2 hours to thaw.  Great fun filming the spot for Absolutely Alabama!  Fred said it will air in 2 weeks.  I have to say the alpaca hat did keep my head warm.  Wish I had remembered to wear my gloves.

Fred is visiting the farm tomorrow

Linda and I are going to meet Fred Hunter from Fox 6 News tomorrow.  Linda asked him today if he really wanted to come out tomorrow to film the farm for Absolutely Alabama and had he seen the weather?  Duh, okay just kidding.  20 degrees and they are coming.  We will be scooping poop at 8 a.m. if anyone wants to come help.  Right.........didn't think so.  Raising alpaca stirs up some interest.  Hope we don't look fat or like rednecks on TV.
