A sporting loss and a sporty win.

Our family missed Game 7 of the NBA finals where our dear Golden State Warriors battled it out with the Cavaliers.

We missed it because we were en route to visit my parents in Europe.

Alas the Warriors did not win. The sad sounds when the pilot announced it before we landed is a testament to our motto: Strength in Numbers.

I did finish my Post Season socks though and even brought them with me for comfort and support.

I have meant to post sooner, but while taking a trip out to Strasbourg my iPhone was stolen and well ... there went my photos and my easy connectivity to the world.

The trip was filled with good times and fun things which I hope to tell you about a bit very soon. There are some more socks too ;)

I'll be making the rounds soon to see what you've all been up to. I hope your summers have been filled with good times.

  3. Oh my gosh ..... so sorry about the phone. That is NOT fun. But, at least the socks turned out well --- even if the game didn't.

    As a big fan of Philadelphia sports --- I know JUST how you feel. Well, no, I really don't. The Sixers haven't made it to the finals since I was a bitty-bitty kid and I'm an old lady now.

  7. Love the socks, especially the stripes (are they six or seven stitches wide) - self-striping or two yarns?

    Sorry to hear someone took your phone. Did you track it with a Find my Phone app and report the results to the police?
