"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either." ~ Elizabeth Zimmerman


Going Offline

Yesterday my father passed away peacefully in his sleep. Daddy was 77 years old. My father gave me my biggest and best passion. He taught me how to knit when I was just 9 years old. I will always be grateful to him for having done that.

Rest in peace my sweet gentle Daddy.

Daddy in the army. This pic was taken in 1957 in a Salt mine somewhere in Germany.
 Daddy is the second fellow from the left on the train.

his favorite possession, his 4-wheeler ATV.

I will be offline for a couple weeks taking care of his funeral and whatnot. I will get back to blogging after I return.

Live long and prosper. \\//
