Baby ‘Squatch!

Big Foot sighting!

They really do exist!

By special request from my grandson Levi…. Introducing baby Sasquatch!

I created this lil beast for my grandson. Starting with a pattern from Brooke’s Yarn Barn, then modified quite a bit to get a baby ‘Squatch I hope will be met with approval from Big Foot super fan, LeviJames. 👀

About average size for a newborn
Business in the front, party in the back! I call him Koko’squatch 😍
Step 1 – the most important features of a big foot, the hands and FEET!

How much is Enough?

The Mexican Fisherman (=an oldie but a goody =)

An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large fin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.

The Mexican replied, “only a little while.”

The American then asked why he didn’t stay out longer and catch more fish?

The Mexican said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs.

The American then asked, “but what do you do with the rest of your time?”

The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and busy life.”

The American scoffed, “I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat, and with the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats. Eventually, you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise.”

The Mexican fisherman asked, “But, how long will this take?”

To which the American replied, “15-20 years.”

“But what then?”

The American laughed and said that’s the best part. “When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions.”

“Millions?” asked the fisherman, “Then what?”

The American said, “Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evening, sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos!”

My Smarty Pants Phone…

Seeing the ‘Throwback’ picture posted by Cindy Indavis got me thinking about our phones… I was so jazzed that my 2009 phone not only made phone calls, but could text, take videos as well as pictures and had custom ring tones! Cutting edge not all that long ago, but looking quite vintage compared to the smart genius phones of today. Making calls is one of the least used options on my phone these days…

It is mind boggling how many gadgets fit into my phone… the ultimate space saving device!

I mean this little smarty pants phone


is doing the job of all these things! 

P1011009and MORE!!

We don’t have a full set of encyclopedias to include in the picture, or every newspaper, book and magazine I might ever want to read… but, being an old fashion girl, when I’m in the mood to read I wouldn’t think of using my phone – I curl up on the sofa with my kindle.

What about you? Anything missing that you use your phone for regularly?
