When Zach and his crew were here on Memorial Day and Dax and I were playing in the “Doll Room”, he was enjoying the stuffed dogs (mostly schnauzers with a yorkie or two and a couple of pound puppies) and we had a chat about his upcoming move to a new house. He was excited because he gets to get a turtle or turtles, I’m not sure. As we talked he said he liked the dogs all right and the plastic octopus and dinosaur toy that I unearthed from a drawer, but “Do you have a turtle”? No, no turtles. As we played some more I got the question a couple more times “Do you have a turtle”? Sadly, I did not and not one to come up empty when it comes to cute 4 year olds I decided to knit him one.
So, when Dax comes over again I Got Turtle!
Pattern is here. I changed the head to make it smaller and eliminated the last increase row.
Let’s just start this thing by saying that I suck at blogging. But, that is a given since the last time I was here was in September of last year. Well, that being said and what is really the big deal in the big scheme of things….it’s not like this is a hot ticket item anyway.
I won’t even try to fill in the time since my last post because I usually don’t remember what I did last week so the months that have gone by are dust in the wind. But, I can say that I had a really good memorial day weekend with family and friends. So, before these memories are caught in the cobwebs of my mind, I thought I would capture them here.

It is wonderful to build memories and also to write them down before they fade.
*May God take away all the troubles of this house and leave peace in their place. God Bless our troops for they are the peacekepers"*
Happy Memorial Day, Y’all!
