because I cannot post without a photo

And it happens to be Masters week. And local best friend is suffering anxiety that he is working and not in Augusta, Georgia. And the weather is perfect for golf. I present this photo of a Haskell Bramble Pattern golf ball. Circa late 1800's - and said best friend owns one. It's old - like he is - not that old but he is older than me - and his was given to him by a friend who found it cleaning out a building. I know very little about golf, but lot's about old things and this is way cool.

The real reason for this post is two fold. Miss Molly and Miss Brittany got the official word yesterday. Brittany is the Valedictorian and Molly is the Salutatorian of the 2008 Class of Madison County High School. The girls are best friends and classmates. Fellow church members. Ball teammates in sports. We are close to their family and I am so proud of both of them. They work really hard for grades, but remain well rounded people (sometimes difficult to accomplish.)

Congratulations to you both. Love you.

While American Idol was giving back last night, I was stitching the final parts of the magazine submission art quilt. (side trek - wasn't it funny when the sound lady had to help Brad Pitt with his mic. I thought she handled it incredibly well and Robin Williams giving Simon a butt squeeze left me giggling hysterically.) I finally finished the copper vine and got all the leaves attached. (this will get its own post, they look great but what a fiddly nightmare) I have it trimmed and left the edges unfinished - one of the article suggestions. I really like being able to see all of the construction materials in the unfinished edge.

I have to add the information to the back - get the photos printed and write my narrative. I'll have both girls help with the checklist and proof the narrative.

MaryAnn - thank you for challenging me and getting me off my a** to accomplish this. Thank you all for the words of encouragement and kindness that you leave here. Blogging has shown me that good people really are abundant in the world. It has become one of my favorite activities and has blessed me beyond measure. I blog for me - but I sure am glad you all are out there - you guys rock. I have to have the best cheering squad in the world.

Have a fabulous day.
