A Leap Year Post

I have received quite a few pictures of the mystery – and still have more to upload – but if you would like to see what all the fun was about, you can check out the mystery at http://www.quiltbug.com/catercorner.htm.

And now here are a few miscellaneous tidbits I have been collecting.

Were you quilting in the 1950’s? A local book author wants to tell your story!   For more information, contact Kathie at LCGREENY@aol.com

Are you interested in completing a survey on quilting for The Department of History and Political Science at Otterbein College? If so, visit http://www.otterbein.edu/Surveys/US/takeSurvey.asp?surveyID=61&pageNumber=1

Is your TV connected to rabbit ears? TV stations are changing their signal to one that rabbit ears can’t pick up. If that affects you, you can still use the TV, you just need a converter box. Don’t worry – you can get a coupon for a free one at

Do you have a duck in your attic? The austistic child of one of our customers lost hers and is inconsolable. If you have something that looks like this  (it probably came from K-Mart) would you contact breezyrainstorm@yahoo.com ?

I received a wonderful thank-you note from the woman who was the recipient of many envelopes full of used and new Christmas cards. (The request was in the last newsletter.) She had absolutely no idea that quilters could be so generous. Well, I could have told her that! She is still collecting them, so if you have Valentines Day or Easter or Birthday cards you would like to send on, feel free to do so. Tina M. Burnham, 3149 Russell Road, Sidney Center, New York 13839. She makes them into wish tags for Angel Trees for needy children at Christmas time.

Here is a bunch of silly jokes I collected so I could leave you with a smile.

Q: Where can men or women over the age of 60 find young, sexy members of the opposite sex who are interested in them?
A: Try a bookstore- under fiction

Q: My wife is going through menopause. What can I do?
A: Keep busy. If you’re handy with tools, you can finish the basement. When you are done you will have a place to live.

Q: Is it common for 60+ year olds to have problems with short term memory storage?
A: Storing memory is not a problem, retrieving it is a problem.

Q: Why should 60+ year old people use valet parking?
A: Valets don’t forget where they park your car.

Q: What is the most frequent thought when going from one room to another?
A: “What did I come here for?”

Q: What is the most common remark made by 60+ year olds when they enter antique stores?
A: “I remember these.”

PS – Oh, yeah, I forgot to tell you. March 3 – 9 is National Procrastination Week. As soon as I can, I will plan a mystery for it:-))
