----- I never knew this. Penguins.
Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica - where do they go?

Wonder no more ! ! !
It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintaining a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole isdeep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

"Freeze a jolly good fellow"
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."

Then they kick him in the ice hole....

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?It's so easy to fool OLD people. I am sorry, but I fell for it too.

Uh Oh!!!

I was just blog hopping, something that I have not been doing and - well, guess what I found..... another one of my weakness'es!!! A Mystery!! And it's going to start here soon....! July 14th.

I am, as of yesterday, in my room cleaning up (again.....) and thought I would come on here and read the blogs I have not been reading. Lots of cool things going on, and I was enjoying myself, till I got to The Crafty Unicorn...... and read "Anyone up for a Mystery?!

I love to play. Mysterys are fun!!! They use up fabric - fabric that I have been cutting, and sorting and moving around and - a MYSTERY!!!! That would help use it up!! That would lessen the load, so to speak!!! (ignore the fact that it is starting something 'new'!! Starting something is not on my list of 'things to do'.....cleaning up, and organizing and sorting and de-cluttering is. That is HUGE on my list, but a MYSTERY!!!!! Not knowing what it will be, the fun of finding out - the loving it at the end!!!! or not..... but that won't happen here!!!!)

So, all my sewing friends - want to join me on doing a Mysterty Quilt this month?????

What else do you have to do??? The mosquito's here are insane, the weather has been rainy, hence why I am on the computer and not outside like I love....... and cleaning my badly neglected sewing room - where I am not starting anything!!....... At least, not until July 14th!!!
