I was just a little busy yesterday. I had a long to do list, but I did not get it all done, so today I need to finish up. I am trying to get everything done before my mom comes in. I don't want to have to be cleaning while everyone is here for the holiday's.
The quilt at the top of the page is the quilt that I was asked to make. This quilt is going to Warren. Now there is a story behind Warren, so go grab a hot drink and settle down.
Warren was in the military, I can't tell much more then that, I met him at the VFW. Warren tends bar and often cooks dinners.
Then it happened. Someone found out that Warren is HIV positive. The old people started raising hell about all of this. They wanted warren fired from tending bar, and they did not want him cooking anymore. This battle came to a head at a post meeting. When Rusty came home I asked him what the out come was. Warren gets to stay.
I was very glad to hear that. The next time I saw Warren I said "Warren, I am not a member of the post, so I knew it was not my place to go to the meetings, however I am so glad that you are still here. You can make me a drink and a meal anytime." Warren cried.
Over the years Warren has been in and out of the hospital for a lot of different things. I make it a point to go see him. I am the only one that goes and sees him. I guess I am the only one who knows you can't catch HIV from visiting someone in the hospital?
I found out that no one invited Warren to Thanksgiving dinner. I could not believe it. I told Rusty if I had known that I would have invited him. That was when I said "People can be so cruel to him". Rusty said "Yes, and they do it on purpose."
When Warren found out that I was in the hospital he pulled Rusty aside. Warren said "I hear Kelli was in the hospital?"
Rusty: "Yes she was, but she is home now and doing much better."
Warren: "Do you this shovel? I am going to shove this up your ass sideways the next time you do not tell me that Kelli is sick."
Rusty: "I will tell you next time"
So Warren is coming to Christmas dinner. I will make it a point to invite Warren to every holiday event we have. Also Warren has wanted one of my quilts for a long time, so here it is. Warren has no idea that it is coming, so I am hoping to get a picture of him when he sees his quilt.
