I think I promised to blog more often. But I do have mitigating circumstances. One of my feet went painful last week (chronic heel spur) and kept me laid up. I did all the stuff I have to do: soak, ice, Dr., cortizone shot, wrapping, aspirin.
I'm on the mend again, and just in time: I'll be on vacation next week at Universal in Orlando, with lots of walking to do. I think I'd better bring my cane, just in case. Oh well, as a last resort, they always have wheel chairs!
I did take some pictures of knitting, but didn't quite make the transfer from camera to computer. I know I keep making excuses, but I'll try to get them on soon. 'Cause it's nice to post pictures.
So, just to have something to blog about, I stole this from Iris:
Don't hate the blogger, hate the meme
1. FIRST NAME?
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My maternal grandmother. Her first name was Louise, and so is mine,

Yes I do, it's rather neat. I'm all about neat.

I think so, I'm kind of likeable.

No: my sister needed hers out when she was 12, so my Dad decided
