Yes, I was KNITTING fun fur scarves. The girls love them, I love the Fun Fur Stripes, but knitting is still not my favorite. I love the material knitting produces, but my crocheting is so much FASTER!!!! The scarves are a big hit...I have folks at work wanting a few......The book is the Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It's a dog's point of view of his owner's life. The dog's owner, Denny Swift, is an up and coming racer. Enzo is the dog that loves TV and racing. Really cute, heartwarming and soon to be a motion picture starring who......yes, ladies, McDreamy himself. I had wanted Mr. Dempsey to sign the book for me, just for kicks; I even had it in my hand. I was soo busy looking into those steel blue eyes and asking for a picture,(which is now my screen saver on my phone!!), I forgot about the damned book. Oh well, guess I'll just have to go back next year! The book is a relatively quick read and well worth it. I recommend it to everyone.

I did manage to get Patrick to sign a Rolex 24 poster that we are going to frame and place in our game room. Oh, and for those of you who have been waiting patiently, here it is:
Ah yes, well worth the 3 1/2 hour wait..Patrick Dempsey is as nice and accommodating to his fans as everyone says he is. McDreamy indeed! He now has a new fan; and yes, I have ordered (and received) the first two seasons of Grey's Anatomy, thanks to the suggestions of my nieces Kristen and Rachel (who were very jealous that I got to meet Mr. Dempsey....don't worry, I sent them his picture and posted it to my facebook page, too)!!!!!
