Well I went to my hobby lobby and they didn't have anything new out since the last time I was there. I was really disappointed. They have 5 aisles sitting there empty!!!! Maybe I should have asked if they needed someone to do their planograms for them. LOL!!!!!

Sure. We always have a blast. You would love it. The kids would love you going with us. I feel like you're already one of the family anyway. When you do come to visit, they'll probably call you Uncle Made!

If you go by the Mason-Dixon Line (the border between Maryland and Pennsylvania) Maryland is a southern state. During the Civil War it was considered a border state or neutral, however there were mostly southern sympathizers there. I always considered it a northern state myself, but you are right MerryCarey, it is a beautiful state and has lots of history. I remember going to Vermont once and they said I had a southern accent.
In cultures and traditions (e.g., cooking), Maryland can have a Southern flavor. I remember when you could get fried chicken in any local restaurant! Not breaded filets, but REAL fried chicken.

I didn't realize I looked that bad that it was noticeable.
Keep cool and rest up. Consider yourself lucky that someone noticed. Where I work, I can feel half-dead, but either it doesn't show or they're too preoccupied to notice.

LOL - sorry. There aren't very many of them left here. They have a hard time keeping them open, because they try to keep the cost cheaper. I am fortunate to have one only about 30 minutes away or so.
