Let us skip past the part where I tell you that I got to use my new address stamp for the first time… on the envelope to mail my check in for the accident and ticket last Wednesday. Mmmmhmmm. Let’s gloss right over that and chat about the stamps real quick.
A few of you kindly asked how in tarnation the stamp thing happened and I am happy to tell you: very simply. I typed me up some stuff on Microsoft Publisher (a part of Microsoft Office) with my favorite typewriter font, and then I bent it into a circle using the ‘circle’ button. Then I typed up a plain ol’ straight address stamp in the same font. Then I saved those two files. Then I emailed Cindy at Ben’s Rubber Stamps and said, “Hi. I want to make these 2 pictures into wooden-handled rubber stamps. One big circle, one little circle, and one address doo-hickey. Yes?” And Cindy emailed me back and said, “Sure. They’ll be ready on Friday.” And they were. That’s it. You can do it, Peeps!
Jami hand-delivered my lovelies and brought along her two youngest children. Lydia had returned to check on her chicken, Amy. Lydia also said she wanted to stay forever. Amy was not available for comment. Hannah had come to love on Salt and Pepper, the kitty cats. Hannah will now demonstrate how to hold and not hold a kitten:
Which brings me to Salt and Pepper. You’ve not met them yet. See, I was at the local nursery last week looking for cabbage and this fancy schmancy lady (read: wearing makeup) was there with her kittens and talkin’ about how she was gonna have to take them to a shelter. Are you kidding me? Those little kitties hopped right in my back seat and are now happily stalking sawdust and nails in the pole barn.
