nonaKnits Sedona

nona and nona-friend-the-oldest knit their way through a fun filled Sedona extra-long weekend.  nona was frantically finishing her sockapalooza socks, while nona-friend was casually starting her nothin' but a t-shirt -- gotta love that Calmer.

(Please humor nona and move your mouse over the photo.)

Yes, nona is over 21 and no nona did not care for the beer with a hint of banana -- banana!?  Click here to see other places nonaKnit in Sedona.

The next time you're down and out -- perhaps you need to do a bit of frogging or your favorite yarn has been discontinued -- think about this story from nona's trip and perhaps you'll have a nice little chuckle...

nona and nona-friend-the-oldest jumped into their sporty rented "compact" car after failing to weasel a free upgrade from the Thrifty guy -- oh, the sorrows of growing old -- and took a casual glance at our MapQuest to Sedona.  "Once we're on the freeway, we've got 100 miles of driving", nona-friend-the-navigator informed nona-the-driver.  With that, the directions were cast aside and the chatting commenced.  100 miles later, oblivious to our surrounding, we looked up to realize we had gone the wrong way on the wrong freeway and were close to the California border -- another 100 miles later we were back where we started from, ready for the 2 hour drive to Sedona.  Sometimes you realize your mistakes right away and other times, well it just takes awhile.

Welcome back Nona! Looks like Nona socks did a lot of sight-seeing. Nona fan is driving to Malacca (in Malaysia) tommorrow with family, but no worries about starting in the wrong direction - there's only one direction out of my little island in the far east (singapore). However, coming back home is another thing :)

Just a little note to let you know that your socks winging westward to you (or eastward if you circumnavigate the globe in the opposite direction). They have a long way to travel, so may take a few extra days to reach their destination.

Daughter Nona: Those empty beer glasses scare me.

Banana beer? Perhaps not. My DH however, is looking forward to a return trip to St. Andrews By The Sea (New Brunswick, Canada) to enjoy more of the local Blueberry Beer.

That photo is AWESOME. I am in awe. I want to taste beer and knit too!

Was the Banana Beer a Hefeweizen? I wonder because I did NOT like Hefeweizen the first time I tasted it and I thought it tasted like a bitter banana, but then my boyfriend, Herr Deutsch, informed me it had been served wrong - that it should have a slice of lemon. I have to say, the lemon changed my mind - try it in the dead of summer and you might too!
