What would be my Dad's birthday is in about 30 minutes. Well, a half hour from when i started this post. Who knows where we will be when i end this post.
He would have been 68. 67 is just too young.
I am not sure how well this reads on your computer, but yes, the type above my dad's obit from last Spring is Chinese. My aunt had this crazy idea while walking through Chinatown (NYC). She figured that Milt loved chinese food and he would appreciate the humour. The funny things is that the chinese food place where we ordered the foor for the memorial service from, recognized him :)
In other news - Saturday night is also the Gala for Imagination Stage - which means, as all not-for-profits do, we are fundraising. This also means that I need a dress and a babysitter. This will be the 1st date Fritz and I have been on without the Baby and not during the day. My sister and brother are coming down to babysit and spend tomorrow with us.
"What about the dress?" You might ask. That is a good question. I am currently reworking a dress that i made 4 years ago - turning it into a shorter cuter cocktail version of itself. Should have taken a before picture.....But you will see the after on Sunday...I hope :)
And while you are waiting to see that - you need to check out this fabric:
Take a closer look if you can. The one on the left is KNITMARE ON ELM STREET. And the second on is QUILT PIRATES. Both by Michael Miller - oh how i love the scissors instead of bones or swords.
