Has It Really Been 30 Years??

How is it posible that it has been 30 years since I graduated from highschool? I can still remember the drill team practices, the teachers, the football games, the weekend parties, like they were well, if not yesterday, then certainly not 30 whole years ago. But alas, it is true. 30 years ago I did graduate from Colerain Sr High School, in Cincinnati, Ohio, home of the Colerain fighting Cardinals!

People say time flies and wow that is an understatement.
Seeing everyone on Saturday should be alot of fun. Even more fun now that I have gotten a jump start in renewing my friendships via Face Book. The planning committee has opted for a very laid back reunion, and are holding it at a park just minutes from our old school. Who needs a fancy hall and a dj, we are there to see old friends and classmates to talk and catch-up, no loud dj music needed. I now live less than 30 minutes away, so i wont be getting any award for person who traveled the farthest to get there. My mom reminded me to bring pics of the kids, and business cards, that woman, she is always thinking, lol. Scott is going with me, he has a brother who graduated in 1980 with me, I'm still trying to talk him into going, so he knows alot of people too. Back in the day I weighed 110 pounds, and I thought I was huge, well, I now weigh alot more than that, I wish I had lost some weight, but that just didnt happen, so they are just going to have to love me the way I am, and if not, I am ok with that. I did buy a new pair of sandals, and looked for a new outfit, but that didnt happen either, oh well! It's gonna be a scorcher 90+ degrees, lets just pray that the humidity is lower! Please God!
I'll post again after the big day, and give you all the gory details, of our Wild and Crazy, class of 80, yes we know it really doesnt rhyme, lol, wish me luck!! And as always thanks for stopping by, Sue

Calling All Crafters

Silly me, I must be the most unobservant gal around. I have just discovered a place not 5 miles from my house that manufactures dowel rods. The cool part about this is that everyday they literally throw huge garbage bins of dowel rods away. All sizes from 1/4 inch to 2+inches. In all lengths too. I have bought dowel rods in the past and they are pricey!
Now my question to all of you super creative gals is...WHat can I do with all this new found free stuff??? I feel a need to use these, I love FREE stuff! So please I would so appreciate your taking a minute to give me an idea of what to do with all this wood!
And if you live in Se Indiana near Cincinnati, give me a call, I might share my source, lol.
Thanks ladies! sue
