I got the coasters! They're BEAUTIFUL! And I so loved the note telling your inspiration, too. Makes it that much more special. I had to get over the "they're too pretty to use" thing, and am using one right now. I'll try to get a picture in the next day or so to post (having camera battery problems). Thank you!

Oh, and thanks for the birthday wishes, too. :-D

WV: prizesse, which is exactly what I am today.

Madcap said...

Oh good! I was wondering when they'd show up.

Certainly they're not "too pretty to use"! I'm glad they're in service, because it always makes me cringe when something I made ends up in a closet for being "too good". Like a punishment, you know?

Happy Birthday again!

sledpress said...

Oh I feel your pain on #32.

annetteinalaska said...

Don't you worry; at the rate I'm going this week, they'll have nice wine stains by the week's end!

Madcap said...

Hi Sled - That's the single best thing about living on an acreage - no next-door boneheads!

Annette - Oh dear... have I enabled something? ;-)

annetteinalaska said...

No, not you... it's the birthday, and my best friends brought me back a bottle of Chianti from Italy. Mmmm.

Madcap said...

Jim, you're a very dedicated commenter, to take on a meme line by line!

1. Slept in huh?

I was thinking that while I was writing it! It used to be that 7 a.m. was a real sleep-in, but lately I haven't had to drive Chive to the bus-stop in the mornings (he's on a different job), so there I am lying about until all hours, like a teen-ager!

9. I'm still wondering what question 9 was, it was missing from mine too...

I didn't even notice until you pointed it out! I'm not the most careful reader. To say the least. I keep missing questions on my exams, too!

14. My recommendation is; don't wear an oversized bra and your cups will always be full;~)

You're right. Downsizing is a good thing.

39. a rare and wonderful quality you share with my Peggy

I'm astonished and horrified by the great swathes of money that a lot of people think they're obliged to spend in the "normal" course of events. How? Poppy came home after her first day back to school after the holiday and told me that her friend had told her that Friend's mother had spent $3000 on each child for each of her three children for Christmas presents. I've had to wire my jaw shut since, it was hanging so low. I really don't understand that lifestyle.

45. one of my favorite childhood pastimes, has he discovered the x-rated ones yet?

They were the first on his list!

50. good way to cleanse the sinuses

I've been thinking about neti-pots lately... do you think this would make the whole process less frightening? Seems like voluntary drowning to me!
