I even made myself a Leisure Suit.  A PURPLE Leisure Suit. 

What can I say?  It was the 70's...

You had leisure in the 70's?  I worked my arse off.  But it came back later ;-)

I can sew curtains if I really have too.

Gawd, Gyp! I'm glad to hear it came back. You must have looked funny without.

I was a bit of a stick insect back in the 70's ;-)

I've sewed curtain and drapes and made pillows and a three piece suit for my son to wear at his uncle's wedding (he was the ring bearer). It was gray pinstripe and he looked marvelous.

Now, I can barely thread a needle cuz I can't see the damn hole.

Never sewn a curtain in my life, although I do have an old hand-operated sewing machine here.  Used to sew up stuff for medieval costumes, based on the theatrical principle that if the silhouette was right then it looked right.  Which meant mostly squares and rectangles.

May have a stab at curtains for my living room if I see a material I like.

Will admit I have trouble threading a needle without my glasses these days.  Maybe I should just use leather strips and thonging needles ;-)

Me too, I'm afraid.

No there's an idea. That might actually make sewing fun.

I much prefer my rotary drill over my sewing machine.

Has everyone gone to bed yet so I can bask in victory for a while?

Nope. Not nearly bedtime yet.  :P

"I have dreams enough to keep -and a second sack of shredding still to do -  and miles to go before I sleep."

Plus a chicken pie which is nearly cooked and a load of stuff rattling away in the tumble drier, but I can't hear the drier because its in another room with a surprisingly sound absorbing door between us.  (Or am I going deaf in my old age?)

The oven has beeped, so you now have an opportunity to depose me from the podium.

Ha, but I'm still here Danuchan. You won't get rid of me so easily.

I'll be off to bed shortly, leaving the podium to other competitors.

Nite all!

No more shredding tonight.  I believe my office wall shares the same wall as my my neighbours bedroom, and although she's never complained she's a lovely old lady and I'd hate to disturb her after 10 PM.  She's the one who used to live in the caravan next to us 60 years ago.

These bungalows are remarkably sound-proofed though compared to the old house.
Back there I could hear the neighbour if he dreamed too loudly.  Certainly heard his kids when they had nightmares for a while.

We live in a stand alone house so no connected neighbors. One of my neighbors actually lives in Maryland so she would have to be quite loud for me to hear from this remove.

The other neighbor is a semi recluse, even worse than me.

So in the silence of early evening, I take my win.
