Thomas, we hardly knew ye!
This Saturday Seven was a light romp through the movie aisle at our house. I am more than thankful for these to leave. My Oldest Daughter loved watching "Thomas the Tank Engine" on television when she was young but Youngest Child was entertained for about 12-24 months. I will offer the train DVD to a friend's son and the rest go to a rummage sale.
Since Youngest Child kindly passed his cold around the house, I've been spending a lot of time sitting and then falling asleep. In between, I've been spending time with the Second Sock. This one is much easier to follow - I've only had problems with the purl edge stitches that border the instep portion of the lace. They tend to fall off and then I find them, unravelled down two or three rounds. Grrr! Ow, that hurts my throat. Time to find some Throat Coat Tea and a quiet spot to read my book group book, "Straight Man" by Richard Russo. So, far, I'm not seeing the humor . . .
