Hi Everyone.

New Year - New (updated) Discussion.

To simplify things (and for me 'simple' is ALWAYS better...lol) we have decided to combine two of your favourite discussions: Yarn-aholics Therapy and Anyone Feel Like A Chat? We thank Jeni (Harrison's Mum) and Kalai for initiating these wonderful avenues for sharing, which will be archived and still available for reading and reminiscing. 

I know I've laughed, cried and commiserated with many of you over the years and so it is my pleasure to offer you this opportunity to continue to share with your friends in 'Share A Yarn?'

Who doesn't love to share a yarn?...Well, I probably prefer to share a yarn (tale) than share a yarn (my stash)...lol.

So all you lovely folk, let's keep things humming along.....well maybe 'humming' is not a good word to use in my case. I recently learned from my hubby that he doesn't like my humming...only took him almost 32 years to tell me.....but I think it may also have taken him 31+ years to work out WHY I hum. When I'm happy, I tend to sing (or la, la, la, as I never know all the words to a song)....but when I'm tired (I think to keep myself awake) irritated or just plain CROSS, I hum.....LOL.

There you go...there's my first 'yarn to share'.

I look forward to seeing and/or reading yours...please share....you are among friends.  :))

Punography delightful!

Awesome, Jeanne!!!!!!! The plumber and the punography.  :))

I'm sorry, I keep finding these gems...this one I just HAVE to share, you'll see why....


Ladies  I have really enjoyed all the witty sayings and photos Bev I hope you are a safe distance from the WA bushfires

Yes thank you, Mary....about 270+kms  from here.....just feel so sorry for the people who have lost everything and for the man who had a fatal heart attack while trying to get his house 'fire-ready'. They have launched a crisis appeal and hubby says we can donate...hopefully the appeal is successful. There seems to have been between 45-49 houses lost...conflicting figures on the tv. The pics on there are just devastating, but the community and surroundings have all banded together to provide clothing and food for those affected. 

I haven't had any luck finding this online, very frustrating.  I'm so sorry to hear of bush fires, they can race along and it can be hard to get out of the way in time.  I recall an aftershot of a man visiting the remains of his burned out house in California, up in the forests, just the chimney standing and his somewhat singed cat came running out of the bush.  He was in tears he was so glad to see the cat, who'd run off beforehand. He said he now had all he cared about.  Awwww.  That doesn't diminish the awful shock of losing everything...friends here lost their entire house once.  My heart goes out to all those facing starting over from scratch.  I hope they find some mementos among the ashes, sometimes one can.

Hi Jeanne

This link shows a news article from Sunday, I think.  http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/live-updates-perth-hills-bushfire...

This one was on the news last night (Monday). http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/video/watch/20731896/heart-break-a...


Such devastation and heartbreak for so many, Bev.  My heart breaks for them all.  And the firefighters that battle those blazes ... real heros !!

Not to be disrespectful of the previous very serious and heart breaking comments regarding the bush fires in WA, but I want to share something very funny.  My sides still ache.  Perhaps one has to have an earthy sense of humor.  I don't know.  It's not rude or crude it's just some warnings to people considering buying this candy,  hilarious descriptions of reactions to Sugar Free Gummi Bears, as posted on Amazon.com.  With everyone talking about over indulging at Christmas and wanting to diet and perhaps considering sugar free items, I thought I should post this here as a cautionary tale.

I would say read a little of this article and see if it's your cup of tea or not.  My sides still hurt, my cheeks ache and I cleared out my sinuses, I was crying with laughter so hard.  It just struck my funny bone all the way and a HUGE warning to be careful what one buys on the Internet!


hahahha that is so funny I was laughing out loud I couldn't help it lol

Don't think I will ever eat a gummy bear again....just in case someone slips me one of those.  :))
