Nobody could make this stuff up...
When John completed his apprenticeship program, we lived in Pennsylvania for several years. But at that time, the jobs were all in Iowa -- so we moved to my home State in 1978. Ever since then -- we make one trip a year back to Pennsylvania. We stay with John's only brother, Jerry and his wife Linda.
We had two boys -- and Jerry and Linda raised four boys...IT WAS A LOT OF TESTOSTERONE when we got together.

|THAT'S RIGHT -- it's a sewing lesson!!|
To get her started -- I brought a sewing basket with a few necessities from my sewing stash... What would you put in that basket?? I decided on:
- Schmetz sewing machine needles
- Grabbit pin cushion
- Long pins with plastic heads
- Seam Ripper
- Six spools of thread
- Kai Scissors
