Thank you for another good podcast, Paula.

You have piqued my husband"s interest enough regarding owls that he has agreed, somewhat reluctantly because he is not a primo carpenter, to make us a couple of owl houses for our back property.

We don't let out 2small dogs out without carefully watching since we have owls in our area.

Loving my PJS!

i love your podcast. i always look forward to each new one.

In the show notes you state,"BostenJen has a new podcast called Down Cellar StudioPodcast.
Erin, MommyNeedsYarn has video from the Knitting Pipeline Retreat on her show. Episode 48 RetreatRecovery Thank you, Erin! "

the click through link for RetreatRecovery by MommyNeedsYarn seems to be incorrect as it, too, clicks over to Down Cellar StudioPodcast, the earlier link.

anyway, i just wanted to point that out to you. please let me know if you get the corrected link as i'd like to listen to that, too.

knit on.
