    That is all. [​IMG] Now, I have to get dressed and run into town to buy a new one. [​IMG]

    I hear ya, speckledhen, my iron is making a weird noise at times. My Ott lamp went out the other day and since I bought it about 2005, screw in bulbs (twisty thingamajigs) replaced my plug-in bulb. I went to four stores and finally had to order it from the Ott company over the internet. That is my only source in the future. Still, I love that lamp.

    I got a new one. Seems okay and didn't cost that much. Got it at ACE hardware and accidentally, found out that they now carry the chicken feed I use and it's at a lower price than the co-op! Yippeeeee!!!

    For me, get dressed means to change from the men's gym shorts to some longer, more dignified ones. I still wore the big, paint splattered short sleeved golf shirt, LOL. [​IMG]

    I'm piecing this quilt top. A very sweet lady sent me the kit, complete with the pieces already cut out.
