The big event of the week was the Dorsai Irregulars convention called Thing. This year it was in Ann Arbor, which I liked a great deal for a number of reasons. It's close to home so there was no enormously long drive to get there, Ann Arbor is near Chelsea, so I was able to introduce a number of fiber-loving Dorsai to Artisan Knitworks (and I got to see Sandra and Larry again), the food at Weber Inn is excellent and the rooms are quite comfortable too.

I enjoyed seeing and talking with people I recognize, not that you would be able to tell from my cellphone. I took very few photographs and all of them involved either yarn or things to eat or drink.

After the convention we drove to Jean & Marshall's house for our annual St. Patrick's Day dinner. Seeing them was wonderful but dinner was not at all Irish. Marshall could not find Corned Beef anywhere so we had carry-out Arabic food instead. This was an improvement in my opinion as I can't stand Corned Beef. Then it was home to take care of the cats and spend some time on my exercise bike. I only had two days off from exercise but holy cats did my knees ever hurt later on. I ended up getting out of bed and taking another pain pill in the middle of the night.

If there is anything actually interesting to blather on about, I can't think of what it would be. If you have something you want to discuss, comment. Please.

I'm with you, re: Arabic food over corned beef. Of course, I'm vegan, but even so, vegan corned beef can't possibly be as delicious as some Arabic dishes I've had. :-)

I wanted to mention that the scrapbook image seems to be from the first week of your project; I don't know if that's intentional or not, as you mentioned you didn't have many photos of the weekend, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

That is Essie Davis, who plays Phryne Fisher in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, which is a thoroughly delightful Australian mystery show. Now that you say it, though, I can definitely see the resemblance.

I wanted to be at Thing this year, but I was in NC instead. Well, and packing to go there, and going there. Whee? (Not that NC isn't a nice place, but the timing was ... inconvenient.)

yeah, I saw Connie's posts when I logged in to FB to contact my sister (who was also travelling and not checking her email).

I'm still waiting for my car to come up in the recall -- I got a letter saying they'd let me know when they had parts, but until then.... OTOH, the car is one of those "we don't think we were actually using those components on that assembly line when that car was built, but it's possible, so we'll check. But not until we have replacement parts on hand."

I love Weber's Inn! We have a holiday tradition of going there every December for their Sunday brunch. All-you-can-eat ham and hash browns and waffles and pastries and salads and it's all delicious. And very reasonably priced.
