We attended a retirement ceremony for a friend - 34 years of service.
Haven't been to a Navy ceremony in a long time ... I've missed it. Going up the gangway in heeled sandals wasn't bad , coming back down - I had to be really careful.
We made it to 8 ... yes, EIGHT quilt shops. I collected 8 different free Row By Row patterns and 4 fabric license plates. And, of course, a little retail therapy as well.
It was such a fun day!
