And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Becke, Hi, Good Morning, It is hot in Somerset. We have had 80's and 90's weather for about a week. It is suppose to get cooler this weekend.

 

I want to do some cleaning in my apartment but it is just to hot. I will work on it tomorrow after work and on Sun.

 

I want to get rid of some stuff and I have clothes to get rid of too.

 

Callie says Hi to Max. That is your kitty's name, right.

We have a heat advisory in Chicago, too - mid-90s, might get up to 100. Thank goodness, it's supposed to rain tomorrow. My cat, Casper, is going to get some company when my daughter moves up here. She's going to rent my son's condo when he moves to a bigger place, but we'll get back here with her cats a day or so before he moves. So for one or two days, she and her cats will be at my place. We'll keep them away from Casper, but it's going to be interesting!!

Re: Good morning!

Becke, Sorry, I forgot Casper's name. I think that Max is Maxcat's cat.

 

WOW, that is hot. We got some rain already. Hope it does not rain when I leave to go to work.

 

I think I am come down with a cold. Not feeling so great. Or it could be my allergies.

 

My eyes are doing great.

 

Callie is great. Fat and sassy.

 

She says hi to Casper.

 

Talk to you soon.

It's my son's birthday today, too - and it looks like it might be a royal baby's birthday!

Re: Good morning!

I won't be online much for the next 5 days. I'm flying to Orlando tomorrow (Thursday) to help my daughter pack and move. She's coming to Chicago, too! I won't get back until Tuesday afternoon next week. I'll bring my computer but I'm not sure what the connection will be like. Back soon - have a great weekend!

Re: Good morning!

Becke, I am leaving this morning for WadeFest. I am excited about going. I have some items being held for me.

 

It will be nice to get away from Somerset for weekend. I will be back sometime tomorrow.

 

I will let you know everything when I get back and have some pictures of the stuff I am getting.

Have a great time, Patti! I'm in Florida, helping my daughter pack. We packed 50+ boxes so far, mostly books. I'm hot, sweaty and covered in dust. The movers are coming tomorrow so I won't be online. Hopefully I'll be able to get online when we go to the hotel tomorrow night. We leave Tuesday - hope you all have a great week!

Re: Good morning!

Becke, I hate moving. I had a great time at WadeFest. I am tired but have removed after getting some sleep. I have to work this week as I used most of my vacation for my eye surgery time off.

 

I got the one item I have wanted for a long time. I got Towser, the cat figurine. Towser, a girl cat lived at distillery in Scotland. she is in the Guinness Book of world records as the greatest mouser. She caught three mice a day for the 20 years she lived there. It is a hard piece to get and I got it for a great price. I am very happy. I love this piece. She is so cute.

 

I had fun with my friends too.

 

I have another cat figurine I want to get. Burslem is the black and white cat from the Wade factory. I am looking for that one.

 

So now I am back and Callie is happy Mom is home.

 

I will take a few days before I get back to stitching. All depends on how tired I am when I get home from work.

 

So take it easy and get home safely.

Thanks, Patti! I have a few Wade miniatures but I don't really collect them. They used to come free in boxes of Red Rose tea!

Re: Wade Miniatures

This is Patti's new Wade piece - Towser the cat, and his real life counterpart.

Re: Patti's Project - All Finished!

Becke, not sure how that is going to happen. I don't have a way to get to the fairgrounds on the 17th which is the entry day. Then have to pick it back up on Sun.

 

I don't have a car to get there. So unless my friend gets better real soon, it will not make in this year's fair.

Re: Patti's Project - All Finished!

Very nice work, Patti. How exquisite! 

I've been busy lately with art projects due and knitting. Max is doing okay, as best as he can at 19 years old. I've set a goal for Labor Day saying that he needs to survive til then. We take it a little at a time.

Re: Patti's Project - All Finished!

Maxcat, thanks, I love this project. It took me a year to stich it. I really hope that it wins something at the fair.

 

I am working on three two for friends and on for myself.

 

Glad to hear that Max is doing okay. Callie worries about her friend. She says Hi to Max. I hope and pray that he makes it of Labor Day. I will pray for him.

 

I am sure that Max is a great cat.

 

Callie is fat and sassy. She is great.

 

So I will let everyone know how my stitching does at the fair.

 

I had a great time at WadeFest. I love the Towser cat figurine that I got. Becke put it up. I love this piece. It is hard to get and I got it for a really good price too.

 

So take care and have fun with your knitting and art projects. I will be reading and stitching and playing with Callie.

 

Take care of Max. Give him hugs and kisses from me and Callie.
