It has been quiet , I know. I have doing inventory for both taxes and Stitches SOUTH prep. We are leaving heading to West Palm Beach this weekend, so I have been busy digging out the summer clothes and deciding which kniitng WIPs to take on the plane.

Here is today’s Friday 5

1. Dr. Seuss’s first published book was And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street!. What’s the most interesting thing you’ve witnessed on your street?
My street is not very interesting, but I would have to say the most interesting thing I have seen on my street: a squirrel with a huge scar on his side moving half the carcass of another squirrel from one tree to his new home in another tree across the street.

2. In The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, a boy removes his hat to pay respect to the passing king, but each hat is somehow replaced by a bigger, fancier hat. If you’re a hat person, what’s your current favorite? If not, under what circumstances did you last wear a hat?
I do not really look good in hats, but my favorite is a beret I designed that works with my very round face. I really only wear it when it is cold out

3. In If I Ran the Zoo…, a boy fantasizes about how fantastic the zoo would be under his administration. What’s your local zoo like, and how do you like it?
We do not have a local Zoo. There was a zoo in Birmingham. It was small but pretty nice.

4. In Green Eggs and Ham, the main character refuses to taste a certain dish until, just to get Sam to leave him alone, he gives in and discovers that he likes it. When did something like this happen to you? I thought I hated shrimp as a child. But actually what I hated was shrimp overboiled with way too much old bay seasoning. I still remember the day I had stir fried shrimp with peas for the first time. The texture of the shrimp was so wonderful, as was the simple seasoning of salt and garlic. To this day it is one of my absolute favorite food.

5. The Foot Book contains a lesson about judging others based on their feet. Feet seem to be something people have widely polar opinions about! How do you feel about feet, and can you think of someone in your life who has especially nice feet? I am neither here nor there about feet in general, but I am a little freaked out by old people feet. But I have to say my grandmother had very elegant feet. Very small(4.5!) with a lovely high, curve instep, and longish toes.

The chicken class was so infomative. Pix and post coming as soon as I finish packing.
