Since I'm not too clever and can't think of anything interesting about myself, I thought I'd use this space for one of my favorite crochet jokes...
As a new bride, Mary moved into a small ranch house with her new husband, Jack. When she got there she put a shoebox on a shelf in the closet and asked her husband never to touch it.
For fifty years Jack left the box alone, until Mary was elderly and dying. One day when he was putting their affairs in order, he found the box again and thought it might hold something important. On opening it, he found two doilies and $82,500 in cash. He took the box to her and asked about the contents.
"My mother gave me that box the day we married," she explained. "She told me to make a doily to help ease my frustrations every time I got mad at you."
Jack was very touched that in 50 years she'd only been mad at him twice. "What about the $82,500?" he asked.
"Oh, that's the money I made selling the doilies."
