Spending time in front of PC and TV

Boy I didn’t realize that it had been so long since I’ve blogged. Time flies when you’re having fun – or just keeping busy futzing around.
I’ve been spending a lot of time on the PC editing – trying to edit – the book. Having mucho problems with the pronouns and tenses. Like who’s telling the story? Oh well…guess I should have paid more attention in English class. Or maybe I did pay attention and have just forgot it all.
Also been spending lots of time in front of the TV watching soccer games leading up to the World Cup – the first game of the actual Cup is tomorrow. I can see there are going to be a few conflict of interests coming up with soccer games and NASCAR!  Good thing we have more than one TV.
It has been raining off and on for over a week. In our area nothing severe – just lots of rain. And the ground is so saturated some of the big trees in the woods are coming down. However about 60 miles southwest of us a tornado touched down yesterday afternoon. Have not heard about any damage.
We saw some wild turkeys the other day, the first we’ve seen this year. Only three or four of them – there used to be a big flock (?) of them. But that was before Thanksgiving.
And we did stop in town to walk around a little the other day. I was looking for a yarn shop I thought was there – didn’t find it. But did see even more wood barn quilts for sale! These – have stitching marks on them. Interesting idea.  Didn’t see a price but did notice they aren’t weatherproofed.
Also watched the chain saw carver guy at work.
One of the trees on the side street must have died and he carved it into “Abe Martin” a cartoon character that is Nashville’s mascot.
http://www.browncountystatepark.com/abemartin.html some fun interesting info about Abe Martin and his creator. 
Yesterday we went into Bloomington, the town to the west of us, and had new tires put on the Jeep. Ouch - And went into a “half price” bookstore. Lots and lots of books. And the paper backs were only $1 each. So we stocked up.
Also went to O’Charley’s for lunch – their rolls are delicious. The waitress even gave us a couple to bring home.

I’m still plodding along with my knitting – will probably finish the fourth panel today – then just one more to go and then putting it all together and fringe it.
