Flying Saucer Spotted Over Tempe, Az

Yes it is true..Flying Saucer spotted over Tempe.  It left behind an Alien. 

The unanswered question is:

                                   "Is your UFO this big"?

This is a knitters/crocheters joke.  UFO =Un Finished Objects.

You Can Do Anything

The wind chimes in the photo have a special meaning. They came from the home of my mother-in-law who died of cancer. Before she died she loved humming birds and watched them in her back yard all the time.

Now look closely at the picture. Can you see the humming bird and the nest it build?

Now the question I have for you is if this little bird can build a nest on top of a horse in a wind chime and set on her egg day in and day out spinning in the wind, WHAT can you do if you put your mind to it. I think anything you want.

Tempe Yarn Open On Monday (Jan 19th)

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience.

Tempe Yarn Celebrates His Message with “A DAY ON” This Monday, January 19th.

On Monday, January 19th (11 am to 2 pm), Sam, the son of the founder of Colinette Yarns, will be at Tempe Yarn to help roll out their Arizona Dream Kit trunk show. 

But Sam is more than a pretty face with a Welsh accent,  he has been involved in every aspect of the Colinette Yarn business.  Come listen to him share his industry  experiences but don't be surprised if he tells some Welsh folk tales.
