Thanks for the great post, Andy! You made my day.


Very Funny Andy! Cute pictures too!

Great post, Andy! LOL at "the corgi fell over."

jeanne e.

excellent! i love the "felt dispatches" from you andy. thanks for taking such care with our kits. :)


Oh Andy, when will you see the light and join cheese-nation? Wouldn't you rather cheer on a winner?? Thanks for the post. That corgi is one funny corgi!! So very worried, she is!!!


Love the t-shirt and I could not agree more. I thought that was Lou Malnati's pizza but now I am not sure. Portillo's = yum. I would go get me some but I already had lunch. Great post as always.


haha you guys make such a cute pair! that looks like a lot of work, but exactly the kind of mindless tasking that makes for good thinking and spacing time. very important when big changes and decisions are on the horizon.

Hahahahaha, I always love your posts! Thanks for another great one.


Just in case you want an excellent sweet-salty snack in one, Trader Joe's makes these incredible chocolate covered sea-salt almonds in a plastic tub - they are addictive!
Also, I love a dog with a tiny bit of tongue sticking out like "bleh! I give up on those crazyfolk!"

I made my Iowa-born husband a Portillo's junkie a few years ago, and for a while, every time we visited my parents, we ate nothing but Portillo's and White Castles (his choice). And your t-shirt speaks nothing but the truth- too bad the game was abysmal. Thanks for the fun post!


I'm looking forward to the silk screening post...its something I've always been curious about but never tried!


It takes a very secure man to go public with his Star Wars pillowcase. And the salty/sweet snack streamlining - yeah, we need more of that kind of thinking in this country. Two birds, one stone, you know.


Andy, Andy, you're supposed to streamline the felt not the snacks! Poor Clover, give her a hug from me.


I can't get enough Clover! You may have the most photogenic dog in the world.


i LOVE the Andy posts! Also, I am now deeply craving a pizza that looks like that... tragically I don't think there are any around here that look like that.. although there are 2 places in town I haven't tried yet... it is a small town and I am still pretty new... thanks ANDY! :)

These pictures are making me want Chicago food. Portillo's! That pizza looks more like what my family always had -- not deep dish. (John's in Addison, which is maybe not objectively great pizza, but very nostalgic for me)


Combos + m&ms = brilliant! I sense a new crafy snack coming my way!


your post makes me miss home so much! portillo's! the bears!


Hey Star Wars Boy! Your post rocks!! Speaking of stuff on the felt...Last year when I got my kit, I found a little Clover Meadow hair on the felt! I was so happy, I think I said out loud (while I was facing the West) Awwwww! Hi to you too, Clover Meadow!!! Question:Does drinking really happen on a golf course?


Totally laughed at the computer when I saw - "Aw. The corgi fell over." Thanks for making me look around to see if anyone saw that :)


I love to see and read your perspective, Andy! And your dad has a totally great nutty smile!

andy andy andy....the snack pic is the best...what a comedian....i think you check in from time to time because you know the ladies like to hear from you....! what a hoot...keep cutting...


Love the shirt!!!


Smart idea on the snacks. If you don't have sweet and salty, something is missing.

Looking forward to the delivery of my felt :)


Oh dear! Please don't curse my mailing label!
I love WI but miss my WA:)
