The Gala was fun. At least Kevin thoroughly enjoyed himself. Roy Scheider was a guest speaker. Kevin shook his hand and claimed he would never wash it again…he loves Jaws. Kevin also won a baby basket in the Chinese Auction. This was quite a plus for him as someone walked off with his baby basket from last year’s dance. Kevin also shook hands with some WWF wrestler. Who knew he could be so easily amused? I wore my Fiesta shawl. No one believed it was handknit. Could it get any easier than garter stitch on a US17? Of course, there was the usual "you could sell that" stuff. No thanks but I will knit another and donate for Owen’s fundraiser.
This week’s paycheck, be that as it may, went right back to Granny. I bought yarn for Owen’s sweater and for Kevin’s godson. I’ll post pics next time.
Owen and I had a terrific day on Friday. We met his friend for a playdate at a play type of place. You pay one price–$6.50–and the kids just play. They have various little sections like a beauty parlor, store, car center and kitchen. Owen and his friend had a blast. The played so beautifully. He left nicely too–always a plus. However, when we got home, he told me, "I want infinity and beyond." They had a couple of Woody and Buzz toys. He is obsessed with all things Toy Story. I hope we go back again soon.
