Been Mugged

After spending more time in both Green Room and the MidAmeriCon table I was ready for a hike. Concert in the afternoon then out onto the Green Line (or Red or Blue, from the hotel they all go downtown).

The Eldest had been scouting out the area for the last couple of day and had found a couple of interesting places to eat. I wanted to stop at Mountain Hardware. I rapidly discovered (which should not have been any kind of surprise at all) that the catalog carries far and away a better choice selection than the story. The two young guys however were impressed that my fleece tunic from them had traveled in over six countries this year. So they gave me a mug!


which I happily will take home along with the sheep mug Shana had found in one of the local fiber stores.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
