Starmore and 6 Degrees with an Appalachian twist

It has been an interesting couple of weeks.

My Sweet Benny got me a copy of Alice Starmore's "The Celtic Collection" Donegal has caught my attention. Take a look at the beautiful finished one over on Nerd Knits As always, I would have to slice it into a cardigan. I'm far too hormonally challenged to leave that much wool on all day!

On television there was a show advertised recently called 6 Degrees. As I understood it, the premise of the story was that there are only 6 Degrees (or people) to connect any two people passing on the street. We had our own 6 Degrees story last week.

My friend Karen has a mom who could rightfully be described as "Love With Skin On". Both Karen and her mom were very supportive of our family during our trials of the last couple of years. They continue to be on Justin and Sarah's side.

Last week, Karen passed an e-mail "Forward" all about Mom's, and how much they love and are willing to sacrifice for their children.

Karen passed it to her friend L.D.
L.D. passed it to her friend C.C.


C.C. passed it to Sarah's mother
Sarah's mother sent it to Sarah
Incredulously, Sarah sent it to me
I e-mailed Karen (thus completing the 6th Degree)

Somehow between Karen, for whom this was a reflection of the love she shares with her mother, and Sarah, it seems the forward became a narcissistic weapon aimed once again to justify actions.

Some things never change. And yet, as Miss Chloe's birthday cake encrusted "I'm One" proclamation depicts below, life moves forward at an amazing pace.

L would love for you to be able to show the whole of Chloe. I mean her finger is adorable but I bet the rest of her is also. So maybe swomeday????

I think Ernest T's spouse "Fanny Mae" is ridiculous but then we knew that a long time ago. She doesn't begin to get it and probably never will. I don't have much hope for her.
