Today there is celebration over the release of Laura Ling and Euna Lee all across the world.
Great, Glorious, Shout it from the Mountain Tops Celebration!
I mean, after all, how often does your knight in shining armor fly in to secure your release from the ogre in the castle?
In addition, how often does the Knight secure your release and allow the Ogre to save face.
All in all, a very good day.
Add to all this Sock Summit ’09 begins tomorrow – a monumental week to be sure!
Surely, there are not enough knitted socks in the world – if there were, Ogres would not be so ogre-ish. More people would be spending more time talking to each other about the fab socks adorning each others feet and what new socks are in process! Knights in Shining Armor would not need to come to the aid of Damsels in Distress, they would come in search of the Holy Grail – hand knit socks to adorn their feet.
If you have not experienced the luxury of a hand knit sock on your foot you have not lived.
It is not hard; it just requires a small amount of determination, a simple pattern, some sock yarn, and some pointy sticks.
Won’t you join me in working towards World Peace – one hand knitted sock at a time?
Welcome home Ladies!
I watched the coverage live this morning and cried as much as Laura Ling during her speech of gratitude. I really lost it when they showed the footage of the ladies stepping off the plane and being embraced by their families. Woo. What an emotional viewing, but joyful.
Well, I missed all of the TV coverage, but it is a glorious day indeed!
I for one, will work toward World Peace—one sock at a time. 🙂
World peace – one sock at a time, sounds great.
I guess I have not lived… hmm… but I don’t like to learn how to knit… So I guess you’ll just have to send me some hand-knit socks!
What a blessing for the two of them, and their loved ones.
I, too, have not yet lived @yoonamaniac!
