The Memories they're bringin' back, the memories!

My last post has a comment from my brother. He joined Blogger just to leave comments on my blog. Awwwww!

His Blogger name is totally inspired by a childhood tale I will share with you now.

We were visiting my cousin in California and playing his retro-cool (though then current) Hangman game. I am 5 years older than my brother, more or less, and he was about 7 at the time so I guess I was 12.

Now I tend to think of myself as a word queen, and as I was the oldest of all the cousins I was used to easily beating everyone I played word games with (or games in general) but JD totally had me stumped. This was what I had revealed when my man was hung: _amei_ _ _
What the?!?
I will never forget the pride and delight mingled on his face when he revealed his winning word:


I remember laughing forever, but still insisting on telling him that was actually not a 'word' but a phrase. Sheesh, always the big sister.

That is him on the far right a few months after our trip. Cutie Patootie eh? Incidentally that is my cousin B-Nessa, that looks just like me mam, on my shoulders (how do you like that 80's perm?!). Little dolly! Richard? Not even close to being around yet.

Oooh I just had to stop in at the little Gelato/LYS here to check if they sold solid cotton. I need it. It is a necessity. I have to have it for the Dischcloth Fun KAL. It's not a splurge! It's helping me replace all of our cloths.

The cotton was 10% off so...I treated myself to my first ever Noro. Mmmm I love the colours. I am thinking this may become a lovely pillow on my bed - oooh or a rug! The Noro, of course was NOT on sale. Ah well.

Oh and they have new Fall/Winter yarns! Including Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk. OMG! It is so soft.

I thought you would get a laugh or 3 out of my blogger name, but I cna't believe you put the story up in your blog. How embarassing, I hope no one at my knitting club reads this.

Too funny. I'm 5 years older than my brother too...funny how we make allowances just to have someone to play with!

hehe I love that hangman story!

And girl, the NORO! NUMMY NUM! That will make an awesome pillow - may I suggest entrelac? My first and only Noro knitting was an entrelac scarf and oooooooohhh it came out so pretty. Noro is so perfect for those cool squares. :)
