  1. hey pat i noticed in some pics on other peoples blogs, that you looked different not only thinner, but it looks like you got your haircut?! it looks really nice!!! am i right?

  2. Yes, Beth, I went nuts and took the scissors to my hair! LOL!!! Then Zip hacked it up in the back. And to finish the job, Linda trimmed it some more when I got to work! It was a group effort! hehehe!!! And I have been losing weight- WITHOUT HELP FROM THE OTHERS, thank goodness! They'd probably have chunks carved out of my body in an effort to slenderize me!

  3. Pat, I miss you and Linda... The night of the hook in(2nd thurs in april) we had a bad accident on one of my husbands jobs. I was packing my hooking stuff to come when my husband called me to come to the hospital. I can't wait to see you guys..tell Linda I said hi! I love seeing all the pics on everyones blogs!
