It's almost July???
I'll post pictures from the retreat next week......we had SO MUCH FUN!!!!! I was hoarse for a couple of days from all the laughing! One of the things that happened had a little something to do with this bear............
Jan lives at Lake Wenatchee....way out in the woods above Leavenworth, WA. She got a call from her husband on Saturday night while we were all sitting here stitching. He was all excited... telling her how he'd had a visit from this bear that's been trying to get into their garbage. First, he said, he went out to chase it away with a broom in one hand and gun in the other.......then, it took a swipe at their dog (missed, luckily)......THEN! This was when Jan totally lost it and couldn't stop laughing.......he "called it every name in the book" and it STILL wouldn't leave! (Imagine THAT!!! Calling bears names USUALLY works like a charm!!!) The gun you say?? What about the gun? Warning shots?? No.... the broom and "names" !!!! Anyway, she sent a couple pix of the bear on it's return visits after she got home. The game dept. has put out a live trap for it, so hopefully the problem will be solved soon.
Janice and I are stitching on another new pattern this weekend called Autumn Hopscotch (name's still possibly going to change.......everybody here thinks it's a stupid name for it.... we'll see!) I'll take pix on Monday and post them with the retreat photos.
Have a great weekend! Summer's really here! xoxox
