Yeah, plan is to have a little of this and little of that in a variety of topics. Have I piqued your interest yet? I'll discuss rug hooking, dread=choice, TV entertainment, fraudulent claims and whatever else pops into my mind.
After getting frustrated on what to do with the Ox Farm rug decided to pull a few loops on The Thin Blue Line Flag last evening. For those of you who may not be aware, there are 3 meanings:
~ the thin blue line stands for that thin line Police Officers walk every day not knowing if they will make it home at night.
~ the thin blue line represents the police officer's role of trying to establish calm out of chaos.
~ the thin blue line is also a memorial for the Officers killed in the line of Duty and support of those who continue their duties in present day.
I felt compelled to hook one after the viscous murder of Cpl. Keith Heacook of Delmar, DE just 24 miles from my town. Last night I did get a little more background hooked around the stars and is getting close to steam and binding.
While I'm very respectful for the fallen officer and ALL Police Officers wherever they live, Hooking the stars and filling in the background became a little mundane.
Fast forward to today.... I was dreading dealing with either rug so to avoid both I decided to vacuum 3 rooms. You know things had to be desperate for me clean instead of hook. Also took the time to switch out the rug in front of my fireplace to make the cleaning more fun. Now I've a more season appropriate rug as for color. This is a Lib Calloway design #227.
Skin Walker Ranch. Yes you read that right, it is on the HISTORY channel and not a sci fi show. Another I'm enjoying on the same History channel is America's Book of Secrets. And cannot wait until next week and will be disappointed when the season ends.
Okay, was very surprised by some mail I received a few days ago. It was a letter from the Delaware Dept. of Labor saying they couldn't process my claim for Unemployment Insurance until they received more information. My first thought was not to follow the instructions in the letter and figured it was a scam.
So I looked Delaware.gov and learned the phone number and email were correct. Immediately I contacted them to say someone else was fraudulently filing a claim under my old name of Slagle. Provided the info they needed to investigate it and numerous times in the communication mentioned in bold letters that I DID NOT file an unemployment claim.
Boy, lazy ass scumbags will do anything to avoid really going out and working for a living. They would rather be a leach and suck the blood out of people who work and saved or the government for handouts.
Yes, I understand there ARE those in need, and those are the ones who do deserve the helping hand. But the people who are doing these scams are not the good guys who need help. Okay, off that topic, lol.
So what the heck am I going to do tonight ~ hook on which one? I honestly don't know if I will do either. Since I received an order for an E.S. Frost Sheep with Birds and Flowers I'll probably clean up the wool filled drawing table so the pattern can be drawn tomorrow. Guess I could clean a couple more other rooms or dust, lol.
