So, KnittySue, if you will send me  your address, a full version of EQ7 will be heading your way.  Thanks to all who left comments.  I loved reading them and chuckled about so many of the.  It made Vince feel really good that so many of you think of him when you think of the blog.

I’ve always said I’d keep blogging even if there were no readers because it’s kinda like my diary but it’s so much fun having a few readers.  I appreciate all of you . . really!

    Congrats to Knitty Sue and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Judy!!! (Now wouldn’t you just be surprised if some of your blog readers DID show up with gifts??? You know I’d be one of them if I lived even remotely near to you….I think I’d give you a duck call and a green shirt. How about THOSE gifts?? LOL)

    Happy Birthday Judy! When I commented, I forgot to mention that Sunday’s are my favorite day, because I LOVE to read everbodies stash reports. I check back several times during the day, and then again later in the week in case anybody reported late. I read every report–seeking inspiration.
