WHAT WE DID
Our trip to Stuttgart aka the Duck and Rice Capitol of the World to check out the Papoose’s new digs was amazing. The parsonage was really nice, if a little dated, with big rooms and a great backyard, the Papoose is really loving it, lots of running room. It’s right across the street from the church, so they can just walk over. The congregation was very welcoming and warm and put on an awesome potluck after church. I suppose I should mention that the church I’m going on about is Grand Avenue United Methodist, in Stuttgart, Arkansas and my best son in law, Clefton Vaughan, is the new pastor.

As usual, when we all get together (forgot to mention that Babydiva and her entourage was also there), a good time was had by all, with everyone talking at the same time, someone looking for a snack most of the time and, of course, paying homage to the Papoose and Babydiva, the prettiest and smartest girls ever.
It was hot so Mr. Iknead and the Papoose took a dip in the pool, where the Papoose made sure that her Papa was well watered, pouring water over his head from a watering can. Cutest thing ever!
ON THE NEEDLES
I don’t really want to talk about it, it’s painful you know, but I frogged back about four inches of heel flap and sock leg on the 9 to 5s. I still haven’t a clue where the wheels came off, I looked and looked, and counted and counted, never figured it out. Fresh start on the heel flap tonight after work. Frustration doesn’t look good on me, so I hope to get it straightened out so I can move on.
