Hi Mary. I grew up in Fort Worth but now live in Cleburne.  Great to find a QCA friend so close.

Priscilla,

 

Except for giving up my kids, I think I would give my worldly goods (mostly fabric) for the life you describe.

Kathy,

     I had a lot of good times growing up on an Island and some hard times as well. I would get up at 4am to go lobstering/crabbing in the middle of winter. I can remember the salt water freezing on the rope and   icicles forming. You know what I miss the most. Your going to think it odd...the salt water smell. I can almost taste it sometimes when I think about it and smile as I think of my Father and I working together on the boat. He would sit on the stern while I would head the boat to the first string of traps. He would get his thermos of coffee out and hum,  then we would both start singing Mr. Sandman. We worked very hard hauling traps and once in awhile we would just be silly. You had to be sometimes.  We had a few close calls with the weather and other boats.  I would love to write a book on my escapades. If I could only write....

Pricilla,

I love the smell of salt air too.  I live in Oklahoma and am land-locked but have lots of memories of recent and past visits to the sea shore.  I've even tried my hand at lobster and crab trapping.  You are so lucky!

Hi,

My name is Sandi Swayze and I live in Silverdale, Wa for six months and then snowbird to Sun City, Az for six months which is why I love QNN and Quilters club because it is available whenever I happen to be.  I am currently working on the second mystery quilt.  I truly enjoyed the first one and so far, so good on the second one.  I have been quilting on and off for over 35 plus years.

Thanks, Sandi

Welcome Sandi. I was in Phoenix for the first time at the end of Feb.  I just loved the colours of the mountains and all the hiking that you could do there.  I would love to winter there.
