It is so strange how things happen sometimes.
Terry was here most of the afternoon today. When she arrived, I was sitting at my computer reading my email and looking at owls. I had just received a really sweet comment from a reader about how much she liked my videos. I got up from my computer and commented to Terry how amazing it was that I had never gotten an ugly comment regarding my videos.
Terry made some comment that IF anyone ever did say something ugly, she would sure let them know what she thought about it.
We talked and laughed. She put a quilt on the longarm, and I made some more owls.
Both of us keep our cell phones nearby in case our husbands need us. Mine makes a certain sound when I get an email. Hers makes different sounds. Mine had made several "You've Got Mail" sounds (I LOVE that movie), so I decided to go to my desk and check them.
I was SHOCKED to have an ugly comment about one of my videos after I had JUST told Terry I never got any! Some lady complained that I rambled on for 10 minutes about bad service at Hancock's before I showed what I had made.
What was weird was I could not REPLY to her. Her comment had some kind of link or something. I wanted to tell her that there was an OFF button that she was free to use any time one of my videos forced its way into her life. She certainly doesn't have to watch them for 10 seconds, never mind 10 minutes.
I watch a TON of videos where I think the introduction is waaaaaaaaaaay too long, so I will just fast forward to the actual part I want to see which is usually a tutorial. Other times, I love to hear the person talk, and I listen to every word. I AM IN CONTROL, is the point. I don't need to complain to the person who took the time and the effort to make the video which is totally free of charge!
Oh, well. It's a small thing really. I just thought it was kind of tacky.
Other than that, this was a perfect day. Terry was here all afternoon. She finished quilting two more baby quilts to give away to babies being dedicated at our church. I didn't think to take pictures of them. Both of them were very cute.
OH! I have only one more owl to make. Hopefully, I will get them all stitched tomorrow. I'll show you when they are all done. I quit naming them after Graham because I wanted to change their positions in the quilt, and then they were no longer in alphabetical order. Goofy, I know!
Think I will join Jerry in Slumberland.
