  • You Are Not Scary

    Life is partly what we make it,
    and partly what is made by the friends we choose.

    Scottish (knitting) photos will follow later today, but I want to call your attention to a comment my Dad left this morning. When I first started blogging - and while I had considered not telling my family, that lasted just until my Mom asked me what I did that day and I told her I started a blog - my Dad was worried that it would leave me open to all sorts of attention from the undesirable members of society. You know, all those people who just pose as knitters. After guest blogging and following all the comments, he left a comment of his own:

    Blogging family.
    I read this blog regularly, as many of your families read yours, as a way to keep in touch with a loved one.
    At first, I was concerned about T. being "out there" on the internet,as potential prey for stalkers, perverts, Homeland Security Officials, etc. I warned her about the faux knitter, who was only interested in young literate women.
    I am thrilled at the community she found from this site.(Cris the cartoon, Multiplte portrait Lynda, Jennie from Appalachia, etc.)
    I am thrilled at the response she recieved when she returned saftely from her 6(7)country car buying tour.
    The love that pours into your comments is evident.
    The definition of "family" continues to evolve.

    How sweet is that! I was just commenting yesterday that your Dad was my favorite guest blogger, he's very sweet, and protective of you! Kudos to all the other guest bloggers, too - what a great I idea that was! Lots of fun for us.

    All in all, we're not a bad bunch!

    So sweet. He obviously hasn't been to Rhinebeck to see the melee at the Socks That Rock booth. ;)

    Dr. Ross is truly the nicest. I can testify that it's not just now and then. Terri has the family she deserves, some of the best people on the planet.

    This is Homeland Security. We got a tip-off that the yarn for your Ribbi Cardi comes from Iranian sheep with ties to the Iraqi insurgency.

    Just so you know. Big Brother is watching you now.

    Your dad just rocks. I'm so enjoying the photos from your trip. My husband has become quite enchanted with the idea of going to Sweden to buy a Volvo. Who knew such a thing was possible?
