  1. Last week
  2. That’s so good to know ❤️ Thank you!
  3. Just hopping in for a moment, here - when i got back from grocery shopping, there was a message from Jude, i called her back, and it seems that they are fine, now, after a lot of bad/anxious moments. Some of their friends/acquaintances weren't so fortunate, and like so many wildfires. there wasn't a lot of rhyme or reason to which places burned and which didn't. They did not have to evacuate, and didn't panic and leave anyway - which i gathered a few people did. Kate and her husband are fine, but taking precautions to stay away from people who are being stupid. Jude has been making afghans
  4. Had to look that up moiself - it was some old soda fountain slang for being "out" of something, and morphed into being kicked out of a restaurant/place, etc. Oh, and the tshirts arrived today. The 86 one is a little too tight, but i can probably stretch it out, and the nasty women vote is a little "distressed" on the lettering, but both will do for what i wanted them for.
  5. Oh, I didn't know that understood the 45 but not 86. Where does that come from?
  6. I need to hold a tape measure to Goli, if I hadn't so many way at hand to get rid of stuff, I wouldn't get it done. Aside from a free-for-all on our mail boxes in the hall I have a place where Ican drop clothes and shoes, books and entertainment media usually are picked up if Iput them in front of the door and those that bring a few cents I sell at momox. I have an app to scan the bar code, it tells me if they buy it and at which price, I add enough to habe a 10 EUR sale (minimum), they send a pdf of a label and i can send it with no cost. I was rather amazed to see that
  7. "LXXXVI XLV" What's the 86 for? at least you're well prepared
  8. So, i ordered two tshirts from an Amazon seller "Impeach Trump" or so on.' One grey, with red white and blue (i think) saying "Nasty Women Vote" and one in cranberry, saying " LXXXVI XLV" in white UPS tried to deliver them yesterday, according to Amazon, but "ran into an issue" and will try again
  9. Trying to declutter isn't going too well here. i was trying to get rid of books, until i decided just to start cataloging again and keep them someplace other than in piles on the floor for now. It's such a hassle to get to GoodWill to get rid of anything now, that i stuck a heavy-ass candelabra in the back of the hall closet for now. My project trying to trace genealogy has resulted in box (down from two of them) on the floor in the downstairs bedroom aka catch-all area. Sigh. The dog coats sound lovely
  10. i just called the number i have again and got voicemail again; so i left a message saying basically that i, aka Goli, was trying to reach Judith aka Jude, to let them know that we at the Fort, in England, Germany, British Columbia, and Washington, are thinking about them and hoping they are well, etc.
  11. Nor it has The pattern I have fits a back length of about 30 cm. and about 37 cm. around at widest if that helps any. Happy
  12. I have been looking for a pattern for a dog jacket that fits a rather long doggy, and it's really hard. I seem to be unable to make a pattern myself; tried twice - once it was too roomy and too long and the second time it was too tight. Oh yes Found a few art books I had no idea I possessed and quite a few I realized I do not want anymore. Especially older ones - when you look at them these days, it's jarring to see that most of the images are black and white. Found a lovely old one my parents bought some time in the sixties, though, with colour prints carefully glued into a mono
  13. örgs to weirdness needing figuring out - very glad that has been resolved and about the decluttering space renewal project I read a good phrase for these interesting times: "Find forgotten things that make us happy!" I have been doing a lot of that lately As well was sidelined to knit a doggy jacket for the niece's French bull terrier/Boston terrier (both the same? I don't know) Daisy does not like the rain, maybe a layer of wool will help. Have not seen anything from Jude. There was something at Matt's page in August for his birthday though not directly from Jude,
  14. oh, and hi I am a bit caught up in - tadaaa!! uncluttering. Not sure if I told that I want a craft space under my bed? (It's a loft bed. so breathe ... ). So now I am sorting through the books on the shelves there, all of them art books (coffee table books) and cook books. I have to get rid of some because I have to reorganize the shelves so I can put a table next to them without having books where I cannot reach them anymore.. I think I got rid of about 4 ft of books so far; some I gave away, some I threw away and some I am selling. Also other things ... Everything in the bedr
  15. Has anyone heard or seen anything from Jude and family at all? She hasn't posted on Facebook in ages and I am really worried. I sent Kate a friend request on FB, but I'm not sure she'd have a cue who that is, so she might ignore me.
  16. Earlier
  17. Yes, Stech-Apfel in German, Stinging Apple.
  18. To be treated with respect
  19. Also used in some forms of witchcraft and magic Definitely NOT nice.
  20. i have heard this name, but never seen the plant. it doesn't look 'nice' (later...) Also called Thorn-apple, in my plant book
  21. yes, it is, even though the frogs might now agree … I didn't know the Naked Ladies ( ) are poisonous! Good to know. I found a weird plant growing in one corner of the fish market - it was jimson weed (datura). Also really poisonous. I wonder how it got there.
  22. That is a good thing.
  23. Every time i go, i try to count the but they are hard to spot, and tend to jump in the water - i did count up to 13 or 14. The garden has acquired a river otter, which has been spotted at night by the security cameras, and which will eventually get the frogs. i was told they are bullfrogs, and NOT native to the Northwest, so just nature balancing itself.
