Socktoberfest recap

I must confess, I did not get even one sock completed for Socktoberfest. I did knit on the one I've had going all summer long, but I didn't finish one. I'm not a very good Socktoberfest participant.

Mom and I went out to begin our holiday shopping today. It's called the Stocked Market where 100s of vendors come and set up a little shop inside the civic center. We had a great time but bought very few gifts...



However, I did get this cute little "bandana" for Pepper out of a $1 grab bag bin. She doesn't like it very much. Right after I took this picture she went running off to fight the almighty bandana to see if she could take it off. Trying not to laugh too hard, I did unvelcro it for her. At least she doesn't give me those "sleep with one eye open" stares that Bartholamew does if I try to dress him up.

Lastly, since it is Veterans' Day, I'd like to thank all the veterans who fought for everything I (we) have today; all those who are currently serving; and especially all of those who died in the line of service. On a personal note, I'd like to say a special thanks to both of my grandfathers, my grandmother, my blood uncle Joe, my chili uncle/dad Joe Willie, Larry, Bill, Alison, all the generations of my family who I never knew who served/died and lastly (but certainly not least), Daddy. Love y'all.

PS- Happy Birthday, Judy and Sarah!

Poor cat. I dont think they like to be jolly in general let alone have it forced on them.
