Quote of the Day:  "You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses." - Tom Wilson


Not content to have designed the uniforms for Santa Caryn Academy, my Karen decided that all the children should have hats matching the uniforms.  For the girls, she got a woman to knit little black pull-over hats.  Then she made fabric roses (15 of them) to put in a nest of netting and attach to the black, knitted hats.  For the boys, she is making little campaign hats from the same material as the roses.  She has finished the girls and is starting on the boys.  She is also making epaulettes for the shirts of both uniforms.  What a woman!  If you want to get her to do something, just tell that she can't--that she is too old, in too much pain, or no one has ever done that before--then get out of the way.  You have to love her.  There is no other choice.
