Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

A Very Fiber Moment

Stopped by the cafeteria just now for a cup of tea and saw a woman in historical garb with a basket of FLEECE. I got that bright-eyed hopeful look that only we fiber-possessed get and gave her a smile so she, being a kindred spirit, walked right up to me so that I could see she also had a drop spindle about halfway full of yarn in her basket.

ME: Oooh! You SPIN!
SHE: Oh yes! This is Bertha, the prizewinning fleece from [our] County! holds basket out for me to touch
ME: fondling the tweedy tan wool OH she's so NICE!
SHE: Yes, she's a VERY nice sheep!

We grinned at each other and went our separate ways...but wasn't that just the neatest thing?!?

It's always nice to connect with a complete stranger.
