Lost in Indiana -- non Knitting post, almost

You know what the problem with being lost in Indiana is? The whole damn state looks like every other part of the damn state! Red barn, cows, corn, cute white farm house. It all looks the same.

My sister wanted me to take her to our parents house. My parents live about 60 miles due south of me, and my sister lives 40 miles due east. It never occured to me that my sister didn't know how to get to mom and dad's from her house, and I sure didn't know how to get there. But, Indiana has that lovely grid state road system, and I knew that I wanted to be on SR 16. Too bad there were 8 billion detors. But we did get there, eventually.

Anyway, I went to my mom's house for Mother's Day. She was pleased with her dishcloths. While she admits that they would be wonderful dishcloths, she isn't sure
she can use them as dishcloths.

Dad made us all lunch, which was really nice. Grilled hamburgers, yum oh!

Here are my niece Jessica and her brother Jimmy. I call them Booger and Snot (Jimmy is Booger).

I made my sister a red pair of Sweet Mary Jane's for her birthday. I forgot to take a picture then, so here they are now.

I took several pictures of my mom, but she really hates having her photo taken, so you all will have to look over dad's shoulder to get a glimpse of her. She is a wonderful mother, and I am a lucky daughter. Happy Mother's Day Mom!

sounds like a lovely time. I have never been to Indiana, so that was quite a good lesson to learn about the "grid" system.
