The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!

Last night we attended the Cook Children's Volunteer Dinner with part of our family. Dick was one of the volunteers being honored for his service. A very nice evening...dinner a the TCU Student Union Center..we got to meet some of the people he works with on his floor. These are the ladies who nominated him for the award. Of course, I had to tease him about making a speech...being a more than reticent person, he was adamant that he would not have to give one!! There was a video presentation about the volunteers. It was really inspiring to see many of the things they do at Cook... to hear their stories...and the gratitude of the Cook people for the volunteers.
And the second part of my blog is the "CAUSE"! I don't usually listen to Oprah, but I do often watch "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" which came on right before Oprah. So today, after the Millionaire, before I turned the tv off, Oprah's show came on...I was intrigued by the topic...to sign a pledge to not use cell phones or text while driving. That happens to be a subject I am very concerned about...as they say, texting/talking while driving is as dangerous as driving drunk! So after the show, I went to her website and have signed the pledge (although I am not one who does that anyway; I hardly ever even have my phone on!) but I do want to encourage everyone I know to sign the pledge and to really live by what you have pledged!!
