I HAD A THOUGHT...
CaliValleyGirl once said
that the reason she started blogging was so I would notice her and be her friend. Now that I am her friend, she sends me enormous emails about her thoughts but doesn't blog anymore.
So I hereby announce that I am no longer certain that I want to be friends with her. Heh. Maybe that'll get her to post again.
P.S. Why didn't anyone tell me that Annika was blogging again? For pete's sake, she's been at it for months and I had no idea. Also she wrote about Tom Petty last month, which brings me full circle today. Also I want to hear more about The Karate Kid. Incidentally, I had to bite my tongue hard not to ask CaliValleyGirl to take me to Reseda or the Golf n Stuff when I was in L.A.
And now I'm full circle within this post.

OFF TOPIC!: Sarah, I know this is off topic, but I thought it might appeal to you. Respectfully, Dave S. MSgt. USMC (Ret)
National Museum of the Marine Corps Hosts Â“Knitting for MarinesÂ”
Museum Invites Local Knitters to Create Wool Helmet Liners for U.S. Troops Throughout February
TRIANGLE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Museum of the Marine Corps will host Â“Knitting for MarinesÂ” from 1p.m.-4p.m. each Saturday in February. Knitters and crocheters are invited to the Museum each Saturday to help create wool helmet liners to be sent to Marines stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. With a goal of creating 100 helmet liners, the program provides an opportunity for the community and the Museum to provide warmth and comfort to our troops abroad.
Virginia knit supply shops are also pitching in to support the troops and the program. Knit Happens in Alexandria, VA; AylinÂ’s Woolgatherer in Falls Church, VA; and The Knitting Basket in Richmond, VA are offering a 10% discount on yarn to Â“Knitting for MarinesÂ” participants.
In its first year open to the public, The National Museum of the Marine Corps has received over 600,000 visitors, attracting Marines from across the nation and establishing itself as a major regional attraction for the general public. The Museum has quickly become a place for Marines to convene, share their experiences, celebrate their victories and honor their fallen.
Individuals wishing to participate should bring the following:
* US size 6 and 8 circular needles (16Â”) and a set of US size 8 double pointed needles (or size to get 4.5 st/inch with larger needles) or K and H hook (or size to get 4 st/inch and 5 rows/inch with larger hook).
* 100% wool (superwash is fine) in brown, black, charcoal, olive drab, or tan. Only 100% soft wool yarn will be accepted, because our Armed Forces are not allowed to wear synthetic fibers. Wool is inherently non-flammable and wonÂ’t melt against the skin in the event of an accident and will stay warm even when wet.
For those interested in getting an early start, patterns are available for download at http://www.usmcmuseum.org/SupportMarines.asp. For those unable to attend a Â“Knitting for MarinesÂ” session but would like to participate in the program, finished liners can be sent to the National Museum of the Marine Corps; ATTN Ben Kristy; 2014 Anderson Ave.; Quantico, VA 22134.
"Knitting for Marines"
Every Saturday in February from 1 - 4 p.m.
National Museum of the Marine Corps
18900 Jefferson Davis Hwy.
Triangle, VA 22172
