Happy Holiday Weekend Everyone,
I started off my weekend with dinner
and a movie last night. One great thing
about having grandchildren,
(8 big boys, 1 little girl) is, they invite
me to join them for an occasional night out.
Two weeks ago I got to see Iron Man, and
was surprised that I liked it, and really thought
Robert Downey Jr. was great in it.
Last night the movie of choice was
the new Indiana Jones movie.
Not having been a big fan 20 years ago,
I really did not know much about the
the previous films, except that they were
action packed, and had Harrison Ford in
them. Another surprise, I enjoyed the movie
Why am I telling you about my movie
adventures? Just before I left last night,
I got a phone call from a friend, who told
me that Karen Allen, Indiana's leading lady,
was an avid knitter and owned a shop in
Great Barrington, MA. That's just an hours
drive for me, and I have spent many a summer
weekend strolling through GB, and browsing the shops.
I have also spent many wonderful hours, (and dollars)
browsing a shop called Wonderful Things. A yarn
shop in GB, jam packed with all sorts of great yarn,
plus other unusual handcrafted items.
I was not familiar with the
shop that my friend was talking about so I
googled Karen Allen, and I discovered
Have fun browsing her site.
Enjoy the rest of the Holiday weekend.
