To my love sewing friends

Hope everyone is doing well.

My son was working the storm in Louisiana for 3 or 4 weeks.  Then they sent him to Alabama for a week.  He just got home this weekend and got a call to pack his bags and head to Texas.  I know he must be getting tired with the long working hours and the working conditions they are in.  Hopefully, they are getting a lot of people hooked back up with their electricity.  He's afraid Blou thinks he's an absentee father.  Ha!  

Terry got an e-mail today that State Farm is looking for volunteers from Ad Services to go to storm area's affected by the Hurricanes or the fires.  Guess that means he may go to the east coast, south coast, or west coast.  I hope he goes south so maybe?? he might be close to Matt and they can meet up somewhere. If they have enough and he doesn't get selected that's o.k. too....means I won't have to mow grass.  Ha!

Lots of bad weather this year and I think we have another month+ of hurricane season to go.  Probably another month of fire season too.  Snow might be a good change.....just not too much here...a little at Christmas is fine with me.

Had 8 boxes of inventory come in last week.  Should be slowing down soon.  I don't like to have inventory the last couple of months of the year so I have plenty of time to get it in the system and be ready for tax season.  

Brenna will be 4 in October, Jennifer's birthday, Justin, and Aunt Betty #93.

Mom #96, Tucker #8, and Matt.

Kenny #69 in December and then Christmas!  I think I will be looking forward to New Years after all of these celebrations.

Looks like Dunn Brothers is changing owners on Forum Blvd. by Schnuck's.  I think the sign said The Grind.  I wonder if this is a second location or if the one on Rangeline is moving.  Anyone know?

This is the last week JJ's is open on the Business Loop.

I thought you might enjoy a littly funny from my mother:

The Bank Teller


An old lady went to the bank, handed her bank card to a teller and said,“I would like to withdraw $500.”


The teller told her, “For withdrawals less than $1,000, please use the ATM.”


The old lady then asked, “Why?”


The teller irritably told her, “These are the rules.  Please leave if there is no other matter.  There is a queue behind you.”


She then returned the card to the old lady.


The old lady remained silent … but then she returned the card to the teller and said, “Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”


The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance.


She nodded her head, leaned down and said to the old lady, “My apologies Ma'am, you have $3.5 million in your account and our bank does not have so much cash currently.  Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?”


The old lady then asked, “How much am I able to withdraw now?”


The teller told her, “Any amount up to $100,000.”


The old lady then told the teller that she wanted to withdraw $100,000 from her account.


The teller and bank branch manager scrambled to gather that amount from their on-hand reserves and then respectfully presented the old lady with the hefty stack of bills.


The old lady put $500 in her bag and then told the teller to deposit the balance of $99,500 back into her account.


MORAL:  Don't be difficult with old people ...    We can outwit the young and dumb.

I hope this put a smile on your face.  Take care!
