In a pickle

Posted by Matty

This weekend, while at the McKinney Farmers Market, I was hypnotized by a vendor’s crate of pickling cucumbers. I’ve never pickled anything before, and to be honest, I like pickles, but I’m not c-r-a-z-y about ’em. But Nancy is a pickle nut.

I did what had to be done, and a few dollars later, I was the proud owner of a bag of cukes.

Bert the Farting Hippo

Posted by Matty

This title probably requires some explanation. Chances are, you stopped by the website to see baby pictures, or maybe something that Nanc knitted.

You will be disappointed by this post. Sorry. But now, curiosity should be gripping you. You need to know. Even though you think that fart humor is base and juvenile, you are drawn to click the ‘read more’ link below. It’s not about farting anymore.

I recently finished wiring and putting together our den/theater room, and was stumped on how to decorate it. I came up with an idea, which Nanc readily agreed to. (Remember that did you agreed to this, Nancy.)

I thought that it would be fun to decorate the room with props from some of our favorite movies and TV shows. After doing a little more research, I realized that the stuff that I really wanted was just a tad out of my price range.

Being the resourceful guy that I am, I decided to build some of the pieces myself. It’s fun, and keeps me from doing anything useful. My first piece is finished. Pics and details inside.

Knitting Fantasies

Posted by Nanc

What is the one thing almost every knitter responds with when asked in a meme “what would you rather be doing” or “if you could be anywhere, where would you be?” That’s right. “Snuggled up in a comfy chair in front of a fire (in a fireplace) knitting.” Would you invite a friend over if you could?

Jeans with a twist

Posted by Nanc

Hmm, this almost sounds like it could be a drink. But it’s not. Nope. It’s a finished object (FO), specifically a pair of socks!

pez-tastic update

Posted by Matty

New PEZ is here. It’s just inside.

okay.

I get it. You don’t want to look at new PEZ.

That’s fine. I understand. You didn’t hurt my feelings.

But what do I tell the PEZ?
