Undercover Quilters & Last Day to Sign Up for the GIVE AWAY


I came across this list on the internet about 22 things you should NEVER do after the age of 50.  I am definitely over 50 and so had to google what #1 was...and I have to admit to #3 during my 50's...as for #6...it was unintentional, so doesn't count.  I am not discussing #19 and my girlfriend Colleen knows what we did.  As for #22...that is totally ME!  So tell me your story????
  1. Parkour.
  2. Jell-O shots.
  3. Karaoke after midnight.
  4. Karaoke after Jell-O shots.
  5. Trying to break a plank with your head.

Getting publicly and verbally excited about the number of stamps in your passport, zeroes in your paycheck, capital letters before or after your name (unless they're H.R.H.), number of names on your phone-favorites list, number of people you could have married, the size of your acreage … or the size of your anything else.
  17. Explaining your personal role in the fact that your kids "never really got into any of that stuff …"

  2. Great list, but all things I've never done, sigh. As far as taking personal responsibility for my kids' accomplishments, well, I was only personally responsible for hatching them and nurturing them through their "unlovable" years. Everything else they've done on their own. Now, my quilts I'll take the credit (or the blame) for! Ditto my knitting. And the massive hoard of supplies I now have to move!
