Happy July 4!!! As soon as I finish this newsletter I'm going to go burn a hot dog or two!

I've received some e-mails from beaders who were worried about my husband being in jail and needing bail money. Just to set the record straight Coop is NOT going to a real jail. On July 11 he is going to a pretend jail along with other Santa Fe citizens. This is a project called "Jail and Bail" and is being held to raise money for the March of Dimes. These events are being held in cities across the nation. One person thought I was going to jail in Mexico! Nope! We live in Santa Fe, New Mexico which is indeed a part of the United States! I plan to go to the "jail" and poke fun at Coop. I'll get some photos if I can. I do appreciate your concern and the donations to a worth cause.
