It happens in threes.

Unless it's the lottery, of course.

What, you may ask, am I talking about now? Deaths. We've lost Dick Martin, Sidney Pollack, and Harvey Korman one week in the past May. Who were they? Not guys you'd know off the top of your head, unless you're in the 40's, maybe late 30's. Their comedy, once you saw the faces behind the laughter, is much better known by all.

Now with Tim Russert passing, my Hubs and I are wondering which two news guys, nationally known, will be next.

Edited to add, because I'm a doof: Duh! I totally forgot Jim McKay! HE was the first, although, I'd have never guessed Tim Russert to be next. Dang. Russert was way too young, even at 58. Funny how the idea of 'young' changes, the older a person gets?

Good news? There's only one left in the trifecta. Bad news? There's still one left.

End of edit.

This three at a time thing is so much a bummer.

For the inquiring minds: I haven't heard on the submission, yet. No news is good news, I think. In the meantime and while Fry is at Aunt Toppa's until tomorrow, I'm writing up the latest sock pattern. Also in the works is a simplified Aran sweater for the guys, a shawl showing off the colors of Oklahoma in the spring/summer, manly socks for the guy, and a leafy lacy triangle shawl.

These are all projects not counted as works in progress, which, I do need to finish soon. I don't like them hanging over my head, waiting to be done. Here are pictures of them and you'll see why I couldn't leave them alone.

Neat! I love your projects in process right now. And those secret socks (of your own design) are absolutely gorgeous. To die for!

It is really really sad about Tim Russert.

OMG, I just cried and cried over Russert. I've heard Chris Matthews is in the running to take over and if that happens, I'll have to find something else to do on Sunday mornings. He's just too ummm I dunno LOL. Love,love, love your projects. Wish I could figure out how to do that blocky stuff on that top sock. I forget what it's even called so probably not likely.
