It's really, a dog's butt, but you're going to have to wait til the end for the title to make sense.
I bought a beagle pattern for Rob for Father's Day. Granted, I ordered kind of late, but the seller said that most orders were sent within 24 hours, and I would have had time to make the piece for the big day, but the pattern didn't come, and it didn't come, so after the big day, I wrote the seller, and the next day, she sent the pattern.
I printed it out... but it's kind of small.
And, I used the overhead projector to enlarge it on the wall.
I traced it, and colored it in. Rob picked the fabrics, and I was off... There wasn't enough of the green for the background, so we picked two backgrounds that he liked and added a horizon line. Even with that, I'm running low on green, so the horizon line is being moved lower, to take less green fabric, and piece A, the left edge will be remade with that new division between green and blue.
So far, I've made a dog's butt, hence the title.
Well, you can't really argue with results, eh?
Marriage has made exactly the difference I would have expected, knowing me and Rob. There's lots of calling one another husband, but little else is different. We still went to the grocery yesterday, and we worked in the yard, and we cleaned house and we cooked and I quilted. And, Syd did those things that teenagers do, mostly read and watch TV. Except we smiled a lot...
I'm ashamed of some Texas politicians and so proud of others. I'm appalled that people are still trying to make this about religion. And, just when, in a country whose main theme is separation of church and state, do public officials, paid with my tax dollars, get a religious exemption from their job? Okay, y'all. Gay people cannot be the most objectionable people that you ever married. I've seen the public. Just put it in perspective, and stop acting like you're better than the rest of us. God doesn't endow you with certain inalienable rights. Religious history proves that. The state does give those rights. History proves that.
Travis county issued 313 marriage licenses on Friday. Compare that to 17 the day before. The future is coming y'all. Don't be in the way when it gets here.
Everybody have a great Monday.
It's my first Monday as a married man.
