No pictures in this post cause it’s spitting dinner plate sized snowflakes out when it isn’t raining and I don’t feel like retrieving more bags from the truck. We are currently in zip 57638. We are 4 hours north of Rapid City, 3 hours south of Bizmark ND. But at a very nice Inn! We toured town, had a few drinks at the American Legion hall and now have settled down for the evening. Our hotel has wifi, but we are hours from any ATT cell phone or Blackberry (sorry work, I can’t see your emails) service.
Some of you already know why we are here and thank you for your private messages. I am lucky to have two MIL’s. One MIL is Knitting Hubby’s bio-Mom, usually seen here commenting as HLS. My other MIL is Knitting Hubby’s adopted Mom. She lost her current husband on Monday and we are here for the funeral. In a weird twist of small world, Norman (who passed away) was also my cousin a few times removed. (long story that requires a couple of glasses of wine, a cocktail napkin and some Flair pens in different colors to explain). So my being here is two fold.
I know, I know, Kim, I did start another sweater with out finishing anything else. But this is a top down raglan in that Rowan Chunky that the likely hood of it getting finished is high since my other recent finished sweaters have been in the same yarn, different colorways and patterns. I am on ball two of the yarn and it’s coming out nice.
I’ve been taking lots of pictures which you will see in a few days. My 13 month old Canon 30D now has close to 2700 photos taken with it. Knitting Hubby claims that well over half of those were taken in Alaska last year just on Beluga Whale alone.
The weatherman just said (broadcasting from Billings MT) that the predicted snowfall will be a record breaker for this time of year. Oh no!!! Hopefully he wasn’t talking about 6 hours east of Billings.
Time to turn in. More later.
