I hate parades.....

So this weekend in my small town is "Gold Digger Days" (watch out wealthy old men).... no really that's what it's called. Gold was mined here last century hence the name.

So today is a big parade, and a street dance this evening....there are lots of other activities during the day too. I live right in town and it's driving me nuts. It's not even 9 am and I can hear the whoops and whistles of the many people that later will be very drunk and even LOUDER. It's supposed to be 100 degrees here today, way too hot to enjoy anything that may be be honest I just want to leave town.

OK enough ranting.

Yesterday on one of my many trips to the kitchen for a tall glass of ice tea, I look out the window and what do I see? 4 teenage girls waling RATS on a leash down the street. RATS! So what did I do? Ran and got the camera and called out to the girls. They were more than happy to come over and show us the rats. You know, they were really cute and soft! Katie and Ben LOVED them. Good thing the girls turned out to be our neighbors.....I'm not ready to have a rat yet :-)
I have NEVER seen a rat on a leash before.

Not much done on the knitting's just to darn hot. I did find out that Filati's will carry my stitch markers....HOW COOL IS THAT? I just have to go get a Ca resellers license. I have to research how exactly to do that, I haven't found much help on the web.

On another note, now that I am getting a little more comfortable with HTML I am thinking of starting up a Genealogy web page. Knitting may me a hobby but Genealogy is my passion. I have to look into getting some webspace for it....... the idiot that flies his hanglider that has a engine on it (what are they called) is going back and forth over my house....sounds like a lawn mower in the sky. This will be a long day.

My mom loves geneology too. It's her passion. She's also thinking of starting a web site. Very cool!

I'm not a fan of crowds either; and the heat doesn't make it any better. I feel for you!

Webmonkey has HTML cheat sheets. Good luck with your new site!

Wow, eventful day! I still can't believe rats on a leash...

Congrats on gettting your stitch markers into a store! I can't wait to see them. I'll have to explore your blog a bit more to see if you've posted them before.

Oh, and thanks for the warm ROAK welcome!
