Last night I got a call from Curley. Actually, she called before I got home and talked to my grandson Kiddo, and left a message. She told me she had something for me for my birthday. That celebrated occasion isn't for two months yet, but she couldn't wait to give it to me. So I skipped choir practice and went out to her house. I took my Cricut and the equipment with me so she could see it. She had gotten me a new cartridge for the machine. A Christmas one. She knew I wanted it and that I make my own Christmas cards, so she came through with it for me. Of course we had to try it out and cut several different things. It was fun. What made it doubly fun was the fact that Curley's oldest son, Tallguy, came and sat with us at the table. His "two-cents-worth" comments were hysterical. We laughed a lot and had a great time. This was so thoughtful of Curley. She is a great friend. Now, what will get her for her birthday which is coming up here before very long? She doesn't have a Cricut. YET! But I am betting she gets one before long!
