I'm All Cracked Up!

Hi There!

Remember the lovely book
that my friend Elaine sent to me?

"The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt"?

Well, I hadn't realized that there
was a CD in the back of this
SOFT covered book!!!!

Okay, before I continue, let me advise you that
I was born a blonde!

LOL

The Proof?

Here's a pic of me, with my parents.



Okay... back to my book...

Well, after bringing this book
into work with me,
to show my co-workers....
flipping through it,
many, MANY times,
Gilbert picked it up and
casually mentioned,
"Did you know there was a CD here?"

NO, I didn't realize!!!!

Anyhow, my story gets worst,
before it gets better.

Yesterday evening,
I decided that I would install my CD.
When I opened up the book,
I realized that the CD was split in the middle....
almost straight across, but not quite.

I asked Gilbert if he could re-align it
and maybe (keeping fingers crossed)
that it would work anyhow.

(silly me!!!!)

I put it in my computer CD slot and could hear the drive working,
when ALL OF A SUDDEN, I HEARD A LOUD
"POP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I near jumped out of my skin!!!



The CD was all in pieces!!!!

Gilbert had to take my puter apart,
to dig out the small pieces!

Well, I called up their 1-800 number
this evening and the nice gal there,
PROMISED to send me another CD!!!

Imagine that, eh?!??!

And THANK GOODNESS, too!
'Cause I looked at the pictures
of the blocks in that book
and they measure 3-1/2 inches!!!!

Imagine making a quilt with
blocks THAT size, eh?!??!

*VBG*

Thank you Mrs. CD/Book lady!!!!

Appreciate the GREAT service!!!!

Oh Rosa, born a blonde? French? Rosette, maybe, Rosa???? I just don't know. It is just not the image in my head, and that is so hard to change. But, hey, we could all use the blonde excuse!
