THAT TRIP WAS WELL WORTH IT!!



And what I mean by that, is the trip Gary and I took across the river today to go to JoAnn Fabrics!!! First of all, we had seen in the paper earlier this week, that a "Blue Dog" sculpture had been erected on Veterans Blvd.
WELL, I have been in love with the "blue dog" for years, so with camera in hand, I was ready!!!!! And I wasn't disappointed!!! It is enormous!! And BRIGHT!
But it will look much better when all the "viewing stands" come down after Mardi Gras!!!

And Lea, this is just for you. A new Chick-fil-A is being built on Vets!





And when we got to JoAnn's, Katherine and Cynthia were both working (I used to work with them) and I got the Kona fabric I was looking for to finish my applique blocks that I am working on. So as you can see, the trip WAS well worth it!

Great trip, Mom! Love the Blue Dog and I'm soooooo jealous about the Chick-fil-A!

What is it about the Blue Dog that delights us all so much? These photos made me smile...like I always do when I see him.
Thanks so much for sharing this.
