You Can Drive Your Bus Through This Post!

     Hello Bloggers! :-) Can you believe that Spring is almost here again?!!! I can't! And I also can't believe it's been this long since I last posted on my blog!! I think all of the internet changes and me not having my Etsy shop anymore just took a toll on me. I felt like I still wanted to talk just as much as before, but what was I gonna share?!...Songs from Youtube?....No, can't do that anymore. How about other people's photos?....Nope! Not unless I wanted to get into a whole 'rig-a-ma-roll'!! (You just have to forgive some of my 'do-hickey, rig-a-ma-roll, nonsensical talk sometimes. Sorry! Ha! Ha!)
     As an update.....uhhhhhh.......................................yep! There you go! :-)) It's been pretty much 'same old, same old'! My 'crickety' arthritis is still about the same. And it's raining today too. OUCH!!! My aching knees, joints, and sideways fingers thank you for your concern. :-)) Also, hubby is still driving the school bus. The only update about that is that he just won an award for the best bus driver of the year at his company. :-) I took some pictures of the prize he won......a basket full of goodies. If I can figure out how to upload them now, I'll post them below. If not, you go to your imaginary 'happy place' and just pretend you saw them and smile. :-)
     {I'm sure there is all kinds of new stuff going on with you guys, right? Please share in the comments below so I can catch up!}
      I just remembered one other new thing that's happened lately. I got an email from a customer I had in my Etsy shop back in 2013. He lost his favorite tiny crochet lapel pin in an airport and wanted to know if I had another one to sell. Unfortunately I had to tell him that my shop has been closed for a couple of years now. But I had him send me the photo of it so that I could make him another one.....without cost.
     I made it and sent it out to him the next day, along with a couple of other ones that I still had (similar to the style he liked). He received them and was thrilled that the one I made him looked exactly like the one he lost in the airport! :-) He inquired about payment and I told him it was not necessary. (It gave me such a thrill to know somebody appreciated my work that much!!!)
     Cut to this past Friday....................I got a notice in my mailbox that I need to go and pick up a letter at the Post Office (apparently it has to be signed for) from this customer!! So, hubby has to go and get it tomorrow! I'm curious, nervous, excited, and all kinds of other emotions all wrapped into one that someone would go out of their way this much over one of my tiny crochet lapel pins! :-) Has anything like this ever happened to you?.....I'll keep you posted.
    Okay, here are hubby's photos of his gift basket:

      Pretty cool, right?! :-) .... And here is what's inside. Mostly now belonging to me!! :-))

     Hubby can't eat chocolate, so guess who benefits from that little problem?! :-)) I're feeling so bad for him right now, aren't you?! Ha! Ha!
     But don't feel too badly for him. He does get to enjoy these:

     And last, but not least,.....

     So, all in all, the best school bus driver of the year is gonna be just fine!....He may have a toothache the size of Manhattan....but I think he might be alright with that!! :-)) Me and my chocolate-toothed grin bid you farewell for now. :-)


A snow storm on the way,
finding out you're hard in debt.
Somehow it's not so bad,
if you have melted chocolate!

Bad news everywhere,
want to throw your T.V. set.
Thankfully there is music
and some deep dark chocolate!

Doggie had an accident,
a long trip to the vet.
A waiting room with lots to read,
but you can nibble chocolate.

Grocery shopping too.
While you run in there to get
dinner for the evening
you can grab some chocolate!

Okay, you know what's coming.
Are you sick of this poem yet?!
If you are, just roll your eyes,
and sit and eat some chocolate!
