Well maybe not. Did you know that I love knitting and hate computers?

Maybe there is something on Ravelry about the 2016 Yarn Crawl. Or maybe you can just google it. I wish you luck.

Did anyone go to the Yarn Crawl in 2013?

Yours Truly,




The Neon will be showing a film called Yarn on August 31st at 7:30 pm. They will only show the film if they have enough people to view it. You can go to this website to reserve your ticket.  https://www.tugg.com/events/121657. I viewed a trailer to this movie on this site.

I would love to see this movie but I have to work that night.



Age 104. Mary was born in Dayton the year before the Great Flood and led a long life of good humor and quiet faith. A world-class knitter and long time member of the Dayton Knitting Guild she first learned her skill at the age of 5 knitting bandages for soldiers serving in World War I. Mary graduated in the first class of Julienne HS in 1930, then put her education to work as an independent working woman in the 1930’s and 40’s. After WWII she married Herb Fiala, CPA and soon Mary bore two sons, Jim and Jack. After Herb suffered a debilitating stroke in 1965 Mary returned to work to support the household at various secretarial positions, notably 24 years at St. Leonard Seminary and St. Charles Parish. Eight years ago, through an oversight, she let her driver license expire, but studied up and passed her drivers exam and field test at age 96. She lived independently in her cottage at St. Leonard until age 103. Mary is survived by her devoted son and daughter-in-law Jack and Pauline Fiala; her adored and beloved granddaughters Kate and Christine; brother and sister-in-law Tom and Betty Kirchmer; many nieces and nephews. Mary was preceded in death by Herb and Jim; brothers Joe and Dick; sister Jane Priske; parents Bud and Estelle Kirchmer.


We all had a great time at the picnic. It’s hot out and all the food is gone. Thought we would get home early tonight. Sorry if anyone was coming after 5 pm. We are breaking down now. Have a great summer.



It says “Road Closed”. Just ignore that. Xenia Ave. is open on the east end. You can follow it all the way to St. Mary’s Center. It’s that easy. Look for the Twin Towers.

Lots of DKG items for sale. Come eat and knit. I’m bringing my I-Pad.
