I'll tell you about Vicki and Martha, our Junebugs of the day, after I show you what you can win today. Smooshy! Yes, I have a little group here of a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy in the Wisterious colorway, a size D ChiaoGoo bamboo-handled crochet hook, and a Mirth T-shirt. In fact, every prize package that I give away this month will have the crochet hook and the T-shirt and a different yarn. Everyone needs a crochet hook handy, whether you're knitting or crocheting, and this size is great for picking up dropped stitches, for one thing. Another thing everyone needs is a crisp, white, new Mirth shirt. It's cute!
You know the rules. Go for it!
Now for an introduction. This picture is of my best cousin Vicki Lynn holding me in the pool. She was always either holding me up or by my side, being not just a good cousin, but also a good, good friend. Oh the many fun times we have had and I hope there's more to come. It's just at present she lives in GA and I am in WA. Too far apart! Vicki's birthday is today and I want to wish her the best day, a gorgeous day, a fun day.
I love you, Vicki!
Vicki and I went to the hospital together when I was six and suffered through tonsillectomies together. After we each got home, our moms had a little contest and kept up with how soon we were both "eating solid foods again." I think she won. I was a bit of a whiner.
We also both had little sisters. Here we are, the four of us, in a typical Poloroid shot with obligatory lingering fingerprint in the corner. Do the big sisters look like we are trying to exert some authority or what? "Don't forget who holds up the trees around here, little sissy!" And aren't we all attired so nattily? This must have been at one of the hundreds of family reunions we frequented. Dinner on the ground! Casserole heaven!
On the occasion of this my cousin Vicki's birthday, I thought I would link her with another Junebug born on this day, though many years prior. Martha Washington, our first First Lady. Here are some things these two have in common:
- They are/were both oldest daughters of their familes.
- They are/were both dark-haired.
- They are/were both relatively height-challenged in comparison to the general population and married taller men. Much taller men. Neck-wrenching-to-kiss taller men.
- They are/were both VERY happily married to those tall husbands and hate(d) to be apart from them.
- They both love(d) reading and the theater.
Happy Birthday to Junebugs Vicki and Martha!
Things are going to fire fast and fun around here for a few days, because I'll be back tomorrow with another giveaway and two more Junebugs to honor. I hope I can give today's prize away before I can post the next one! See you tomorrow!
