Astonishing! WE haven't even had one yet, and here's NH reporting in. Bogie, it has to be your fault. Do the neighbors know you're from Kansas??


Unfortunately the neighbors do know. If I had a nickle for every Dorothy or Toto crack I've heard . . .

My Red Cross buds tell me that the pin that is most requested by their co-volunteers when they are working national disasters is one that is a "Dorothy-style" red enamel shoe, with pave red . They say that even the men want them (I suspect that the men actually want them as a take-home gift for their significant others, but who knows?) Many of the volunteers have 15-30 pins attached to the lanyard that holds their Red Cross ID badges, or to their Red Cross "Disaster Relief" vests. Those red shoe pins cost $7 each. When I thought I was going to work Katrina, down south, I bought 20 sunflower pins (with a Red Cross, surrounded by "American Red Cross Kansas", in the center of the sunflower) to take with me. I've given most of them away--even though I didn't go. One of the gals who (with her husband) goes on quite a few out-of-state assignments wanted some because they are out of stock, now. Your dad even wanted one! He doesn't wear the pins, you understand, but he wanted one--and got it, of course. (Do you suppose he wanted it for his significant other??? Hmmm....)

Oops. I couldn't think of "rhinestones" when writing the first sentence of the above comment--and--then forgot that I'd left a blank for it. The sentence should end, "...red enamel shoe, with pave red rhinestones." (You knew that I didn't mean "rubies"!)
