You're full of bologna!

I’m starting to like my new home in Paducah, Kentucky. It’s at least 10 degrees warmer than Chicago and that is absolute spoiling at its best. However, I also have some doubts….

What is this you ask? Obviously, it’s jarred pickled bologna in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Where might you find it? Oh, between the jarred pickled eggs and sauerkraut, where else?
BTW: $6.89 for a pound of bologna?

 Well, maybe, because after all, this is
oh wait, need a close-up?

At the same store I bought this item but didn't think much of it until put two and two together. You guessed it; there aren't any nursing homes in Paducah.

The worst part is that I cooked it for my son this evening, after showing him the package and giving him a blank stare. He did get the joke and reported that it was “disgusting” before walking away.  

He has a sensitive stomach so I thought I’d ask how he was doing after eating the entire pound of sausage and 10 biscuits (biscuits and gravy, his favorite!)

Me: Any residual effects from dinner?

Son: Other than wanting to eat dinner at 5 and then head to bed for the night at 5:30, no.

Me: (Mockingly) “you’re disgusting”

Son: Do we have any Depends adult undergarments?

Please note that I share these things for the laugh value, not to make myself feel bigger by putting others down. Here's my mantra:

Some people have all the luck...

All right, so I have news.

Big news.

That’s why I haven’t been posting.

You know I love quilting. You know I love editing, proofreading, and teaching.
I have been slowly inching towards merging my loves and it’s finally happened.

I’m over the moon to tell you—
I’m the new editor-in-chief of American Quilter magazine.

Yes, as in the oldest, largest quilting company—American Quilter’s Society—has chosen me to put the spice in their Chai.

No, I’m not kidding. It’s a happy miracle!

So my posts will be farther in between but they’ll be there because this blog is me; I can’t lose sight of me, even though it’s tempting.

If you’d like to add my professional page to your Facebook account, then “friend” me! I hope to post things that are happening and a few pics from AQS shows.

Oh, and just so you’re not taken aback, that picture isn’t completely accurate. Yes, it’s me, but I don’t look like that in person. Or at least I hope not or people will be asking me for tips on how to discipline grandkids. 

Send happy thoughts and creativity my way...
