There's no Joy in Chicago

I would rather not talk about the Cubs.

My brother sent some haiku that seemed appropriate.

Cubs are good – great hope!
Destiny can't be fooled
One hundred years more?

Cubs stink – this is true
Futility without peer
It must be God's plan

Cubs win! Great joy now
Whoops! Just three games – we are done
Order is restored

Yes! This is our year!
But the snake uncoils and strikes!
Rats! Wait 'til next year!

Could this be the year!?
Hopes, again, dashed on the rocks
History repeats

Hope, rocketing high!
But fate has different plans
Its same old, same old

Pain! Gloom! Despair! Tears!
Why? Oh why must they do this?
We were born to lose!

There, the iceberg looms
The Cubs, sail forth, unaware
Damn! Abandon ship!

The play is scripted
The Cubs must follow their part
Fate can be cruel

Food, Politics, Knitting

It finally happened! I made it to the head of the list and got my invitation to join Ravelry. It is well worth the wait.

A friend just sent me
this link.
You answer a few questions then click the 'find your candidate button' and the program selects the candidate who's position on the issues is most like your own...
You may be surprised at what you find... (I wasn't surprised.)

Last Sunday was our monthly gathering of the Gourmet Group. It was a wonderful evening. Because of our beautiful weather, we were able to have our hors d'oeuvre on the lawn and the rest of the meal on their deck. Perfect.
