you got it….i’ve got one in black, teal, fuschia, and now this ivory….why not grey?!? It’s a great pattern. I highly recommend it. (I hate I’m so predictable!!!!)

It was the featherweight cardigan and I love it so much I’ve now knit it 4 times. It’s really the perfect summer cardi. Sent from my iPhone

An FO. I know. I can't believe it, either. Especially since it's knit with probably the worst fiber I've ever knit with. The end result....a sweater that I swore I was going to rip out at least two dozen times. Let's talk fiber first. Many (many many many) years ago... Continue reading

This is the BEST napping place in the whole wide world and it just happens to be in my very own living room. I can see my mom when she is at her computer....or, tilt my head, and I can see her in another room when she knits. (There is... Continue reading

Thank you Miss Penny. I’m sort of getting used to having this around. Mommy still doesn’t like the way it looks as you walk in our house, though! Maybe I’ll tell her about the washable ones. I can pretend they are a rug…which started this whole thing!!!

Buddy, you and I could be twins separated at birth. We totally think alike!

Hi, Clarence. For as embarrassed as I was at first…you sort of learn to make the best of things….and having an indoor potty facility is turning out to be pretty darn convenient! I’m a quick study. I’m going there more and more. Not sure this is pleasing the folks, but hey! :) I’m still jumping, but I miss almost as much as I make it. And I’m tripping over myself a lot lately. Maybe my nails are too long? This getting old is not for sissy boys is it? Your friend, FreddyDogYoung

Hi. Freddy here. I'm sorry. I just can't look at you all this morning. The worst humiliation the next to the worst humiliation has happened. The pee pee pad has appeared. Now, I suppose I might be less embarrassed if it was in the bedroom or the laundry room, but... Continue reading

THAT IS ME, TOO!!! Drippy sweaty. Doing nothing…just sweating. I’ve heard people say that women ‘glow’ they don’t sweat, but believe me….I sweat!!!!
oh! I love that palm tree/pine tree analogy!!! I’m right there with you….obviously! Wonder if there is some correlation between the ‘pine tree’ and the 5-star mosquito restaurant?
It's not the first time I've declared how much I hate our summer months. After all, I'm an expat....a Northerner who has been relocated to the hot, humid, sweltering South. 65 degrees is warm to me. I love the cold. I love snow. I love wool. I used to love... Continue reading

I really get what you mean about the film camera….and there was something about the anticipation of having the film developed! I regret that I never got into developing…sounds as if that might have improved my skills with digital. ???? Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed the link. She lives in your neck of the woods….I’m going to have to take a workshop with her someday.

This is not the new kid. It's my full-frame Nikon.....which I love. Love. LOVE! I don't know how to use half (probably more than half) of the gizmos and gadgets, but I'm slowly learning. (I'm a slow learner.) Class after class. Online mostly. Youtube videos. Even a TEDtalk thrown in... Continue reading

Hi, Hannah!!! Very nice to meet another furry rescue. We do come with all kinds of baggage, don’t we. I don’t know about you, but I reveal my ‘baggage’ very slowly. Sometimes you just need a bit more sympathy sometimes than others. I think you made a very smart choice with a burgundy rug….will hide a multitude of accidents!!! If it is patterned, that’s all the better. I’m becoming rather good at finding ‘perfect spots’!!! I’m rather curious about your ‘white’ spot. Mine is dark. I wonder if your Mommy’s floors have some kind of coating on top. Mine just have a little polystyrene coating. Not much ‘cause when mommy tried hydrogen peroxide it started bubbling up. Don’t suggest that to your mom. It was a bad idea. I’ll try real hard to keep posting about my miscues…..that might help you out of a couple bad spots knowing that you aren’t alone in your aging problems!! your friend, FreddyDogYoung

Hi. Freddy here. You know that 'doing better, feeling fine' post of a couple days ago? Might have been a bit premature. (oops) Oh, I'm definitely feeling better, but I seem to have a little pee-pee problem that I've been covering up. I don't think it's really my fault. I'm... Continue reading

oh, Buddy. Be extra careful. I almost made my mommy cry yesterday. You see, I squatted right in front of her on that rug….she freaked out. And after cleaning up my mistake, she pulled the rug up and found all kinds of other mistakes that I had hid from her. They sort of soaked into the hardwood floor and pretty much ruined it. Of course, the worst place is in front of the front door for everyone to see when they come in the house. I’m not sure what is going to happen next, but now I don’t have a rug to pee on. I guess I’m going to have to break in another one someplace. I’m trying to decide which one to ruin next.
Toggle Commented Jun 26, 2018 on Feeling mighty fine!... at woolythyme
Oh, Buddy. Sorry about the teeth. I’ve lost a few myself (with my last cleaning…..but it was actually worth it….my awful bad breath was really rotty teeth). I do hope you don’t have to resort to mush food…..but, we can make do with mush in a pinch. I’d hate it if I couldn’t open my Buddha ball, though. This getting old just isn’t for sissys. I must take the secret poop protocol to heart. So far, I’ve been pretty blatant with my placement, although the carpet I prefer is patterned and my deposits sometime blend in so nicely that they get stepped on. Heehee. THAT drives mom really crazy!!!!!
