last evening after a wonderful mother's day, sat down and got the binding pinned on this feathered star. so, most likely this week some time it'll be done! then it'll be flying south to DD and DSIL for their anniversary. i'm told there is a place waiting for it already. **** for mother's day, my 2 local siblings and i had a wonderful breakfast with mom at a volunteer fire station near where bro #1 lives. it was pure small town america but the food and company were excellent. **** as mentioned, got a terrific greeting from DD and hubby; she chose a funny and loving card that made me chuckle and get misty, but then, her selection in cards is always letter perfect!
