Chorus weekend

PGMC is spending the weekend at a singers retreat at B'nai B'rith camp (Jewish summer camp) in Lincoln City, OR...Oh boy...lumpy mattresses, camp food, snoring of 15 men in a cabin (pack the earplugs). You had DAMN WELL BETTER BET I'm bringing my knitting to protect my sanity. BUT I don't think I'm going to bring Dad's sweater...Too many things that could happen to it, but then again. If I bring it, I may finish it. decisions, decisions....

I sewed up the shoulders and the sides, knit up gussets for under the arms, and am ready to sew on the sleeves, almost.

Ah, chorus retreats....so much fun.....(and that has both the sarcastic and the 'genuine sentiment' meanings)

I remember one year when we had a 'decorate your cabin based on a movie' contest. One cabin was a bloody mess, entitled "Shaving Ryan's Privates". Another had the chalk outline of a little dog, straw thrown everywhere, and a bloody gingham dress...."The Wizard of Oz 2: The Witch's Revenge".

Have fun!!!

We had a sci-fi theme...No offense to any Trekkies, but I'd rather boil and eat my own head. I didn't bring my knitting either...It wasn't a very exciting time for me, but the singing was good.

What's the saying...

Eat your heart out? Isn't that called "haggis"?
