LAST EVENING ~ ~ ~

 St. Baldrick's fundraiser for children's cancer research was a big hit!  This is grandson, Luke getting his hair cut by his mom, who owns Michelle's Salon ~ many of her girls volunteered their time to shave heads for free in return for a donation!  Abby is cutting our friend, Melody's, hair ~ Melody is a school librarian and has Abby's little girls in school ~ they wanted their mom to do the honors! 

And here they are ~ bald as cue balls ~ and apparently very happy about it!!  When I find out the total amount raised and how many heads they cut, I'll post it here!   One teenage lass, had over $7000 pledged and believe me, she was as pretty without her hair as with ~ just a beautiful spirit!! 

And this, my friends, is the BEER TOWER!!  We saw many of these served through out the evening!!  I hope this happy waitress won't mind having her picture on the blog ~ I should have asked ~ but I think she'll be fine with it!! The event took place at Legends, a sports bar, in Shelby and the place was packed!!  They were having so much fun there and the food is great!!

Today, I went to the wholesale market in Columbus ~ I found a few things but I'm beginning to wonder if I've seen so much of this stuff that it no longer has the same appeal ~ or maybe the old girl is losing her touch!!  I used to buy things to round out my booth at a show ~ to offer something in addition to the rug hooking but not too much this year.  My friend, Vivian went with me ~ we had a fun time, had lunch at Brio's and a little shopping at Chico's and Coldwater Creek!  And now, I'm gonna put my feet up ~ Sonny keeps asking what our plans are for tonite ~ so I'm thinking he's ready to go somewhere  fun!  I'll let you know!!

Have a good evening ~ talk to you soon!
Alice

P.S.  The blog challenge project is due to be published Sunday ~ um, I need to get that started, don't I??!!  Stay tuned ~ the wool dust will be flying!!!!!!

Alice ~
You decided to pass on the shaved head again this year? I can't say that I blame you. What a great fundraiser!
I'm sure you and Sonny are going to do something fun.
Yeah, I bet the wool dust will be flying tomorrow, but I'm sure you've got it all done ~ in your head, at least!
Pug hugs :)

Good grief! When I re-read what I wrote last night, it sounded mean ~ so poof! ~ it's gone! Anyone who knows me or has read this blog knows that I 'enjoy and occasional cocktail' ~ but green beer us just too scary for me!!
