Mary Jane Wants Attention

What are they doing? Taking pictures? I want to be in the pictures.

Hi, J H, how about taking pictures of a very pretty cat?

I am here, I am here, take my pictures.

That's right, scratch my head and take my pictures.

Hi, Bon Yu, I like that, more head scratching and more picture taking.

I like you, would you take me with you to New York?

Betty says,

My sister-in-law Bon Yu and hubby J H came to visit. Mary Jane had a great time playing up for attentions.

Alice Goes To Las Vegas

Betty and Alice have been the best of friends since high school and that's a zillion years ago.

Alice came over to spend the holiday with her son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, they went to Las Vegas.

All that glitters in Las Vegas ....

... is not gold but sure shows festivity.

It wouldn't be Las Vegas if there aren't some performers on stage.

Winter Time Is Spinning Time And Knitting Time

Betty says,

There is a long break of shows during the holiday time. For us California residents, it's not common to have a 5-week period without a show. Even though it's holiday time, it still leaves me a lot of time to spin and knit. Here are some of the skeins of natual and dyed yarns that I spun recently plus two new scarves.

In less than two weeks we'll be back to shows.
