Very innocently quite some time ago, I said to a friend in Colorado that Chad and I might come and visit her and do a quilt related errand this summer. I’m thinking . . we’ll drive to Colorado. We’ll visit. Chad and the guys can fish and do boy stuff. The girls will do quilt stuff. Then I began getting the strangest emails from this quilt friend. A quilter most all of you know! And you probably think thought she was fairly normal.
In an email, she’s talking about us staying in a tent . . roughing it she says: I have a foam pads that we use to sleep on – so its not TOO bad 😉
And I said . . I’m not too sure about staying in a tent! Aren’t there bears in Colorado?
To which she responded: Bears?? Can’t you climb trees?
And then she says: There are some great places to hike. This will be fun! Do you have hiking boots?
And I said . . hiking boots? I have flip flops for summer and my $16 rubber boots from the Amish store for winter. And then I said . . I’m old and fat and unless your husband is a cardiologist . . I am not hiking!
And then she said . . Maybe we will convince you to get on a horse.
And then I said . . I ain’t coming to your house this summer!
And I think she said . . Whew! Got rid of her! 🙂
But, no! She has not gotten rid of me. I’ll be there and I’ll be ready for whatever adventures come my way! And, I’m really excited about it . . now that I’m over the initial shock. Guess I’d better get off the computer and brush up on my tree climbing skills! 🙂
