Wake Crossroads

Originally uploaded by needlepointernc

This sign is down the road from our house at the intersection of 2 roads that evidently are Wake Crossroads. Not sure the history of this. Wake is the County we live in. County Government is real down here, unlike back in Massachusetts (it took me awhile to tell them at the DMV here what County I was born in 🙂 even though it is the same name as the City).

More bolts of fabric from the quilt shop. Polka dots are popular in fabric now and I like the bright colors.

Orange Fabric With Plastic Photoshop Filter. Went to the quilt shop today and took some pictures of the fabric (and didn’t buy any). I used the plastic filter on these bolts and it looks pretty cool.

Dead Hard Drive

So, after starting to rebuild a new disk, it died last night. And DH couldn’t get it to boot at all. Luckily I had only installed a few things and I have all my data on other drives and I do backups. So, may be a few days till I get caught up again.

I am resting up cause we have tickets for Dancing With the Stars tonight. Hope we have good seats. They had buy one get one free tickets. So, they must have not been selling that well.

Blue Red Wolf of Raleigh

I decided to use this theme even though this fit in several others. This statue depicts a Red Wolf, which is one of the endangered animals in NC. It was part of the Red Wolf Ramble held throughout Raleigh in 2001-2002.

Here is the full view:

The city of Omaha had JDoe as their theme. There have been cows, horses, pigs, and other themes in many cities.

Something Yellow – Who Am I?

I took this myself while waiting for the Anesthesiologist to come in and ask me questions. I had my preop for my gallbladder surgery next week. I asked if I could just keep the thing on till next week 🙂 but they said they would have to put on a new one. I said I was just kidding.
