Hi Lisa, The Hui never really happened. We could never figure out how to make it happen, especially with everyone so spread out. I've shared pearls once or twice, but that's really hard because one person has their hands on them in the splitting. I'm a fair and honest person, but I did not like trying to figure out who should get which pearl, since in most strands or lots there is a lot of inequality in, well, quality. But I'd be glad to help if I can.
Well, you should have seen my old nose!
Yes, it seems to be a great bunch.
I need to reset my profile. I didn't get a little ping from your email. I just checked here on impulse.
Speaking of impulse - I need to exercise more impulse control. I'm spending hours reading PG, old posts, etc...I should probly be spending the time learning computers, but learning pearls is more fun.
I tried to rationalize it by thinking "Maybe I can learn to string, and support myself that way. After all, I've been making regularly spaced knots in my dental floss for years". Then I thought what if I stiffen up w arthritis? I need to find something I can support myself w for years to come.
What the heck! All of life is a gamble in one way or another.(grin)
You seem like a really nice bunch of folks, and that's a real draw too, aside from the pearls.
Thanks for writing! Do you have b'day plans set up yet?
What a nice treat to get your message. Pearl-Guide is a wonderful place to hang out, isn't it?
