The Approach of the Memorial Day Weekend

Here in the United States, we're coming up on a big three-day weekend celebrating Memorial Day. And as many of us have to work on Friday before the three-day weekend, I thought you'd want to be mindful of this Centers for Disease Control warning I received today.

* * * * *

The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically. This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever - DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! This virus will wipe out your private life entirely.

If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or both of the antidotes - Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

And on another Memorial Day-related issue, does anyone have any recommendations for must-see quilt shops in the Gilroy/Hollister/Salinas area of California? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

And finally, here's a little treat for you: Click on over to Eileen's Quilting Porch and leave her a comment--it's her 200th blog post and she's having a giveaway!

Funny! No wonder, too much WORK and no play, makes Jack a dull boy.

Oh, boy, are you right. Wish I did drink after weeks like the one I just had. Alas, I have to touch the W-O-R-K this weekend too to cover someone on VAYCAY. What definition could I come up for that acronym? Hmmmm.... Have a great weekend.
