me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

End of Week Observations and Musings

1. I'm glad to have the Olympics just now as I have been very proud of our team and hope their good actions will be noticed by the rest of the world -- especially cute Seth the Gold Medal Winning Snow Boarder who threw his arms around the other two athletes on the winning podium in an act of excellent sportsmanship and solidarity.

2. My vote for best words of the week go to Maureen Dowd for "Shooter Slips on a Silencer" in the February 15, 2006 edition of the New York Times:

" . . . Cheney gets his macho kicks gunning down little birds and the occasional old man while W. rides his bike, blissfully oblivious to any collateral damage. Shouldn't these guys work on weekends until we figure out how to fix Iraq, New Orleans, Medicare and gas prices?"

Amen, Sister.

3. And, speaking of "Sister," that quote came to me from my dear pal, Heather, who I couldn't love or respect any more if she were my blood sister.
