Three Jelly Babies

Here are all three of the Jelly Babies I have knit so far.
The Purple Guy is the tall one.
Orange is medium height.
Yellow is short and fat.
All in all I think I like the medium sized one the best.
They knit up very fast, which is good because it takes several of them to look right.
Jelly Babies are herd-candy.

Jelly Baby in Progress

This is the small sized Jelly Baby I am currently working on.

This purple Jelly Baby is the large one.

As soon as I get this little guy done, I will have a picture up of all three sizes, and get the pattern written out in a somewhat coherant fashion.

I started making these guys after I managed to talk Mr. Gothric out of the Doctor Who scarf that he thought he wanted me to knit...until he remembered that he is always hot and never wears scarves anyway...and I would rather be boiled in my own pudding than knit ANYTHING over 12 feet long ever again.

I will be content with knitting Doctor Who's power food.

Happy Knitting, Folks.

Do Pro-Lifer's Eat Eggs?

Sick humor?

You bet...but y'all wouldn't have it any other way, now would you?

Big Thompson River-Trading Post View

Big Thompson River taken August 23, 2008

This picture was taken from the little foot bridge that sits behind The Indian Trading Post, about half way down the Thompson Canyon.

The owner's have always been gracious hosts and allowed us to access their private bridge so we could take good pictures of my beloved river.

(Thanks guys!)

Cell Phone Weirdness

Okay, I had NO problem blogging from the cell phone in Estes Park, but it freaked out after that.

Still trying to work it out.

I have a bunch of pictures to post as soon as I can figure the silly thing out, so be patient, folks.

Big Thompson River

Estes Park, CO

August 22, 2008

Yeah, I know cell phone pictures suck.

I don't really have words for Estes Park.

This is the place where we spent most of our free time when I was a little kid.

I haven't been here in 30 years, yet there are some things that I remember like it was yesterday.

Estes Park

We leave for Estes Park in about an hour.

With any luck I will be posting a few pictures from the cell phone today.

This is the town that we went to nearly every weekend when I was a little kid.

At one time we lived in the canyon just down the river....many years ago.

We moved to California not too long after the Big Thompson Disaster...but more on that event later.

Happy trails, folks.

Psssst!! What's my password?

Haven't been babbling much because I can't remember my flippin' password, but somehow THIS computer knows.

All hail the work computer.

I'll be travelling next week so I might actually have something to say for once.

Until then...what's my password?
