A Miracle Has Happened!

Yep, a genuine miracle. The phone books got delivered today and like every country hick concerned business person I have to check to see my listing. It just proves I really exist. Besides, last year the shop number wasn't listed. Well, I looked and guess what...NO LISTING for the shop phone number. Just the home number. No it isn't life or death critical, the shop is listed under my name since they charge double for a business listing. But, I had called in October to check that everything was OK, they said it was and now nothing. So...I the called the phone company to let them know about the omission. After 24 minutes on hold (yes I timed it) the rep comes on and says she and her manager don't know what the problem is, she will call me back when they figure it out... Is there anything else she can do for me? My gut response is yeah, right I'll never hear from you again and I doubt you will reprint a bazillion phone books just for me. She called back about 30 minutes later (shock) with an answer (bigger shock). It seems somehow my listing was linked to the book for Rutherford Maine. I have no idea where that is, but it ain't 'round here. And oh, by the way in compensation, they will take 50% off my phone bill for a year. (I am all astonishment!!!) That's HALF off my phone bill. I don't have a big phone bill (really puny compared to some) But I got a concession from a PHONE COMPANY. I have never heard of it, unless there was death or dismemberment involved. I may not believe it entirely until the bill comes at the end of the month, but should I be looking for a star or some wise men??

And just in case you think I'm not working... This is the quilt I have on the machine right now. It's another raffle quilt from the lady who made Gram's Garden and Theresa's Baskets. See all those big open spaces? You will just have to wait and see what goes in there, but you can probably guess.
OK...back to work...there's lots more stitch-in-the-ditch before the fun starts.
