BASEBALL SEASON IS HERE!!! WaaHoo!! PLAY BALL!!
I let my son talk me into Fantasy Baseball, oh boy~~
Go Birds...okay, enough of that!
And I'm still here...my allergies are in high gear, today I've felt as though I'm recovering from a Benadryl hang-over~(everything seems to move in slow motion). I LOVE Spring but it doesn't love me!
I've been playing with my fiber so much...not much knitting to talk about. I had to *tink* back a few rows of my Civil War Shawl (what a pain in the rear) because there was an error I didn't "read" about....
*Tinking* lace sucks! Lifelines are a good thing but, why go back more rows than needed to fix the problem?!? Anyway...
Getting ready for "The Urbanna trip"...hoping to stop by The Yarn Lounge on my way through Richmond...we'll see! It'll be good to see my BIL's and maybe get some fishing in! My BIL lives on an island, yes, you heard me right...an island in the Rappahannock River! It's an oystershell island their grandfather created back in the 40's!
This picture is of the island as it sat prior to him building the house on it (2000)...what you see in the picture is the old office building (which was torn down before construction began), the oyster house was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel. Hurricane Isobel hit right after the completion of the new house...it survived however, the jetty is gone along with the old boat shed and both duck blinds.
Hurricane Isabel also was the end of the family business! Three generations...gone! I must say a waterman's life is a hard life! I've never known work that is so grueling as a waterman's...maybe it's because I a "landlubber" as I'm told!
Well...I've got some fiber calling to me...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
