This is me! Ali called from work on Saturday morning to ask if she could take my car to Milwaukee — hers had a thing.
I said, "Sure! Whatcha goin' to Milwaukee for?"
"To see Mark Knopfler."
"I WANT TO SEE MARK KNOPFLER!" I involuntarily moaned into the phone. It was so pitiful that she offered to buy me a trinket at the concert, which, of course, I declined.
It's been almost all Mark Knopfler almost all the time ever since, though – a little Emmylou Harris, J.J. Cale, Van Morrison, and Dire Straits, of course, mixed in. Have I mentioned how much I love Pandora? I wrote a very nice post on Saturday about guitars that included lots of videos, but you can't actually see the embedded videos when composing a post and I started rearranging things and it got all messed up. So. One video today.
I did a little neatening up 'round the homestead on Saturday in preparation for the group birthday celebration on Sunday. I finally tired of seeing (moving around) certain of my unfinished knitting projects and began to rip. Notably, an unfinished Bayerische sock, and a more mindless sock that I started when Michael was in the hospital — I know, that was AGES ago!! I always hated that sock, never mind all the worry and not-good-stuff knit into it, so it was really great to see it go. Next on the blog is a third completed Jaywalker — I have two others exactly the same and I will never, ever knit the fourth. What was I thinking? Moving on.
Instead of seeing Mark Knopfler in concert on Saturday night, I continued the party, finally tearing apart and completely frogging my Coup d'Etat cardigan. There now remain only two Olympic projects — and I want to take one of them with me to Vegas. Getting there!
