Fingerless glove

looking for what's missing... I'm a knitting, spinning, mother of teenagers with a big dog, a small cat, minus the lovely rabbit Meliflua.

Right now I'm listening to "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor, reading "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" by Anna Quindlen and knitting Wisconsin Wintersocks. And casting off the lace shawl I've been working on since I last posted.

Bye, bye Mr. Vonnegut

I was trying to explain to Vince why I liked Kurt Vonnegut, even read a few quotes from one of the first of the many tributes I expect to see over the next few days. I don't think he was convinced. Why is it always funnier when someone else says it? You can go here, or maybe read one of his books, but you'll never be able to go hear him lecture again. Sigh.
