The three grand essentials to happiness in life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. -Joseph Addison


She is coming to get me...one hour…here we go. Another chapter in Pat and Melisa’s most excellent adventures. We are on a highly technical, super important, carefully thought out, precisely planned, research based, meticulously executed, fact finding expedition, to PADUCAH KENTUCKY. No we are not getting to the AQS show early to beat the crowds! We are doing research so that we can plan a trip for 50 lucky quilters to the show in April…a bus load of credit card holding, mostly menopausal, needle threading, fabric crazed women…sound like your idea of fun? Me too!

Melisa Ernhardt will be driving, I will be her co pilot sewing all the way! I’m going to open a diet coke and a bag of cheetos…thread a needle and I’m not lookin up till we get there! I’ll be playin Carrie Underwood’s song “Jesus Take the Wheel” on my ipod. If she so much as drives one mile over 95 I’m going to have to speak to her.

Won’t be back till late tomorrow night so think of me. Prayers will be appreciated…I’ve packed the camera and a note pad. This time I’m taking notes and recording every incident! Here I go…bye bye.


PS. While I’m gone can someone figure out how I get myself into this stuff. Consider it non quilting homework.

And don’t forget my give away…
