Hail!

I have never really seen a hailstorm before, but yesterday, this happened.

It was all nice and sunny when suddenly the sky went dark and it started pouring, and then, little white things were falling from the sky, about as big as blueberries. I felt bad for the guy moving out across the lake, we could see him standing in the back of his truck waiting for the storm to pass.

I had a nice surprise yesterday when Claudine called me and said she would be in nearby Niles with her mom. We met for coffee (and knitting, of course) and caught up. I miss you NYC SnB'rs -- and it was so good to see Claudine! Of course I forgot my camera, so no pics, sorry!

Here's an update on my Honeymoon Cami progress -- lots of stockinette in the round right now. It's kind of relaxing and tedious at the same time, because I want to get to the fun part but I also don't want to have to think about what I'm doing.

Does anyone want to go to Peru next year to see (participate in?) the vicuna round-up?

Everyone should know that I was recently a BIG FAILURE as an aunt, grand-daughter and daughter when I missed the opportunity to wish a big happy 1st birthday to Sam, happy 90th birthday to my grandpa, and happy 43rd birthday to my mom earlier this month. So happy wishes, guys! I miss you all! Sam is walking now and is really into giving kisses to her friend Emily and just about anyone else who asks...

Don't you remember the Great South Bend Hail Storm of 94ish?

I think dining hall windows were broken :)

I remember! But I didn't see the hail, just heard about it. Dave was actually coming back from the parking lot with one of his friends and got caught in it -- some random guy in a van saved them.

Hail is weird! We get them in GA sometimes--my dad runs around yelling, "Are all the cars in the garage?"
The honeymoon cami is looking purty--I need to start a summer top, too!
