My Mother Warned Me


that there would be days like this. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series, completely humiliating the Rockies by sweeping them out of their own stadium. The Red Sox couldn't do anything wrong and the Rockies couldn't do anything right. Where in the world did they find all of those unbelievable players? Oh well, it reminds me of the first time the Broncos played in the Super Bowl; we Coloradoans are used to waiting for next year. And think how many years it took Boston to win a World Series. I just hope the Rockies don't have to wait that long.

The game was not doing a good job of keeping my attention, so I went to my bedroom and started doing the top stitching on my June 12 x 12, and a couple of inches from the end there was a strange noise from the machine and the needle holding element fell off. It is rather difficult to sew on a quilt without a needle. Joe, my fantastic tool man of a husband, checked it out and thinks he can fix it tomorrow, when he is able to find the appropriate equipment out in his shop. I hope he can because the really nice Canon City man that I bought the machine from, passed away a couple of years later and, as far as I know, no one else sells and/or repairs Berninas or Bernettes locally. How could I survive living without my machine if it has to go stay in Colorado Springs for a while? Now I understand why serious quiltmakers have multiple machines.

Dear Fran, Take it from an Atlanta Braves fan, life goes on. Considering their long, always a bridesmaid, rarely a bride history; considering I faithfully followed them since the first year they landed here: need I say more? :-)

You did have a bad day, didn't you?

So sorry about the Rockies, Fran. I think the sweep was because the Rockies had had such a long layoff while the Red Socks were fresh from winning the ALCS. I know that's not much consolation--but just remember what all Cubbies fans says: "Just wait till next year."

I rooted for the Rockies as I did the Broncos years ago!

Fran, So sorry my boys in red had their way with your Rockies. But they are young and there is always next year! I have been a Sox fan my entire life as was my Dad. After so many years of waiting,these last few years feel great!

Fran, I am glad I was in Houston and unable to watch the Series. I thought of you when I'd scan the sports section in the morning, and I kept saying to my roommates, "POOR Fran!"
But Susan is right: there is always next year.
