We had a great time on vacation in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The ocean was beautiful !
My computer had a battle with a diet drink last night and the drink won.
We replaced my keyboard today :o)

Hope all is well and everyone is having a great summer!

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
And as He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men". And they immediately left the nets and followed Him. And going a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. And immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him.
Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him.
For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you.
And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed Him.
"FOLLOWING JESUS IS ALWAYS RIGHT---
BUT NOT ALWAYS EASY"
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - June, 2004 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there
I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

Thanks so much for taking time to send in the photo of Demon wearing
a dog sweater made using my pattern. I will be including your comments
along with Demon's photo in the June 30th issue of the CNM Newsletter.
I've also added Demon to The Dog House:
You'll have to try my Ribbed Dog Sweater next :o)
I don't have alteration instructions for it though.
The patriotic pattern that Buddy Boy is wearing was contributed
by his owner, Jennifer Lewis:
I've seen many other dog sweater patterns on the internet but
most are "knit" patterns or they aren't adjustable.
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much for this wonderful magazine!
Missing an issue would NOT be appreciated in this household!!!
Please keep up the good work. May God Bless.

* My Pet Peeve:
By Cylinda Mathews
My personal pet peeve is to find an error at the very end of
a big pattern. About 6 years ago, I chose a lovely tablecloth
pattern from either a Magic or Decorative Crochet magazine
to make for my mom. On the last two rnds, after months of
working on this cloth, I found an error. Because these patterns
are in symbol crochet, and the edge of the cloth was hidden in
the picture, I had to design my own edging. My other pet peeve
is an error at the very beginning. If you can't figure it out, or
contact the designer, you can't even begin!
What's your pet peeve?

The following was overheard at a recent high society party...
"My ancestry goes all the way back to Alexander the Great," said one lady. She then turned to a second woman and asked, "How far does your family go back?"
"I don't know," was the reply. "All of our records were lost in the flood."
A woman surgeon was disturbed about the high cost of her car repair.
"This is ridiculous!" she said, "charging me five hundred dollars
to grind the valves and put in new piston rings."
"Not really, just think about it. You are a surgeon and should know
that an automobile engine is just as complicated as a human body.
The mechanic who serviced your car is just as skilled as you are."
"Is that so? Well, let me see him grind valves while the engine is
A school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around
the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and was not
noticeable at all. On the first day of the term, still with the cast
under his shirt, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in
school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the
window as wide as possible and then busied himself with desk work. When
a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took the desk stapler and stapled
the tie to his chest.
He had no discipline problems from that day forth!
Husband to wife after he had forgotten her birthday: "How can I possibly
remember your birthday when you never look any older?"
Mary announced that she was going to start a diet to lose some pounds she had put on recently.
"Great," Sue exclaimed. "I'm ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. And when I feel the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I'll call you first."
"Wonderful," Mary replied. "I'll go with you."
A fellow computer programmer for a consulting group had designed some software for one of our largest accounts. He asked my help in putting it into operation.
At first, he handled most of the work. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training.
When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her how to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. "I'm so glad you're teaching me instead of him."
Surprised, I said that my colleague was far more experienced than I was.
"Yes," she said, "but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get nervous around really smart people."
