Ah yes, the famous jaunt to the car exercise. I'm fairly deft at that! :-)

If you had a cat and had to keep the yarn from her, then knitting would become aerobic.

Knitting is exercising. It supposedly keeps our fingers limber to keep them moving. I agree with Sam. It would definitely be exercise if a cat is around. haha

Have a great weekend!

Reading a book can be a major accomplishment. This is especially true for some books which are written in such a way that we forget who a character is by the time we hear from them again. Have a great weekend.

Finishing a book is always kind of sad. Especially if it was a good book.

1983. How did you meet? Was it in an art class? Was it at college? Oh, just a guess. Tell us the story.
