Growing up in the Detroit suburbs, I know bagels. After Mom moved in with us we would drive back to the old neighborhood to buy bagels: 120+ miles roundtrip. (We bought 3 dozen at a time and froze them. Sacrilege, but what could I do?) Quite the versatile food group, bagels are. Fresh with lox, … Continue reading Bagels

Jennie did all the packing and I basically showed up for the heavy lifting. It's nice to be needed. On Friday we drove over … Continue reading It’s Nice To Be Needed
Quilts From The Selvage Edge

She's made "new fabric" by stitching together selvages I've been throwing away or slicing up accidentally. Her book is chock full of really different quilts, the ultimate in scraps! You'll … Continue reading Quilts From The Selvage Edge

I walked into our mall and there were about 100 people, mostly senior citizens, shuffling counter-clockwise. I was dumbfounded. It looked like The Invasion of … Continue reading Mall-Walking
