a week ago monday, I went to Kennett to get new drivers liscense.
Then went grocery shopping in a big way!! my word, did I buy out the store.
Was gonna go to another store, but after paying for my groceries,
Maurine says to herself, “
“self, you better not spend another dime” so on my way home.
I made it just fine and down main
street of Hornersville,
I turn right on George Street and went two blocks and all of a sudden !!
wham !! bang !! wham !!
I’m in orbit and I was going west when started spiining and
when I got stopped
I WAS GOING EAST in the
opposite directiion .. plus I
have a huge, ugly dent in mu

frame… but I was not hurt.
scared but not hurt at all!!
OH MY GOODNESS !!

so we both get out of our cars and he said
“are you ok?”
“Yes, I’m o.k.!!”
YOu got a cell phone ?
Yes, I have a cell phone !
“well , call the police !!”
So he proceeds to call the police….. no one comes
a neighbor pulls out his cell phone and in just a minute , here comes our city officer.
The first words out of his mouth is
“she had the right of way”
The guy said he looked both ways and didn’t see any one… but he didn’t come to a stop and there
before his eyes was a big
STOP SIGN !!
SO WE GAVE OUT DRIVERS LISCENSE TO THE OFFICE.
“ MINE WAS BRAND NEW- NOT EVEN DRY INK YET… ( kidding )
I said I have a car full of perishable groceries in my car and
I’m one block from home..
So our nice officer said

your groceries in refridgerator.
and I will come down there in a few minutes and finish getting all
So I get in my pitiful car and it won’t start…
the guy who hit me said pop your trunk.. and I popped !!
so they hook jumper cables to my car and it started right up .. and
I headed home.. and happy to be there !!
So just in a few minutes, they both came down to my house and we sat out in the patio furniture and he finished his report.
we’re both out snapping pictures
of the cars.
So I am now in the process of
getting the insurance settled and have in the meantime go my car sold as soon as the slow wheels of
the powers that be…. get started !!
NOW FOR THE SPECIAL NEWS !!
I’M SELLING MY HOUSE AND MOVING BACK TO MICHIGAN

I HAVE SOLD ALMOST ALL OF MY
FURNITURE THAT I WASN’T TAKING WITH ME.
HERE’S A FLASH !!
I HAVE HAD JUST SCADS AND SCADS OF FABRIC…
Too much for any one human to own, and always buying more..
I had 13 plastic totes full of sorted
colors in the closet on shelf.
Plus other newer fabric I big boxes.
so late this afternoon, a friend that I hadn’t see in long time, dropped .She had seen where I was moving and wanted to know what I had for sale..
well almost everything was sold.
I had a small round table that I used in the corner of kitchen where I had all my displays of primitive stuff.
so she bought that and “what else ?”
well I have tons of fabric.
“I quilt,” she says and so into my cluttered moving stuff we went.
Fortunately I’m neat with my fabric so I had it color co-ordinated in plastic tote boxes.
I started dragging them down and saying “ this box is blues, this one is burgundy’s . and this one is greens… on and on till I have 12 boxes out on able and she looks in the closet and said “ there’s one more.”
Oh yes, and this one is americana colors”.
OK, SHE SAYS
“I’LL TAKE ‘EM ALL “
“YEP, I’LL TAKE ‘EM ALL”
“HOW MUCH DO I OWE YOU”?
OH MY WORD !!
MY CALCULATOR MIND START
SEEING… “ CHING, KA CHING “
OK, I GIVE HER A GOOD PRICE AND WE BOTH WOUND UP HAPPY AS A “FABRI-HOLIC” CAN BE!!
WELL, THAT IS ALL THE
MAURINE CAN STAND
AT ONE TIME
