...I'm too honest for that.

Oops it's been a while. Michael and I both got Spring colds and with all the rain, rain, rain, and more rain around here we've had our hands full. I'm happy to report that we are both feeling much better these days and our neighborhood survived all the flooding.
Since our last blog we have done a few shows....
4 Bridges in Chattanooga, TN:
We got to stay with some wonderful friends and Michael flew out that weekend to NYC to go to a Memorial for an Uncle of his that had passed away the previous summer. It was a hectic and complicated weekend with Michael not being able to fly out Sunday morning as planned. He arrived with the van just in time to load it with all our stuff on Sunday evening. Thus no pics for the weekend. I was too busy manning the booth.
OMB Magic City in Birmingham, AL:
Michael went down and did that one solo because it was Quilt Week here in Paducah and we had our apartment rented out. That show was the weekend after the big tornado and we had mixed feelings about going down to a city that was in the middle of crisis. But we had already paid for the booth and the hotel and the show was still on. So off he went with some boxes of clothes and shoes that we gathered to take down to the emergency shelters. Go figure...it was our best show so far this year! We were stunned. Michael had a great weekend. We guess that folks needed a good distraction and they got it. Michael's work was met with great enthusiasm. Thank you Birmingham!!
My next post will be all about the next show we did in Silver Spring, MD.
Sorry for the lapse. I wish I could promise you that it won't happen again but I'm too honest for that.
