    Good morning all!!!! What a grand Sat morning to be alive and vaping!!!

    My son is home. We had a great family dinner. Then he and I stayed up until 3am catching up on "Game Of Thrones". Shared a few adult type beverages, talked and laughed.

    Life does not get better than that guys!!! Mommy is happy. Sister is happy (She really misses him) Ohh and if you have not guessed Daddy is happy!!!!

    Today I get to spend the day with my sister that has been battling cancer for over 8 years now. Get to teach her how to handle all her new vaping stuff I set her up with. Today I am taking her 2 tanks, and she wants to try the Aurora so I am going to take the one of the ones I still have new in the box. I was going to take her a set of my pink eGo's but she told me "Frank I have been meaning to tell you that the pink ones look stupid" ROTFL!!!!!

    Hope you all have a great Saturday!!!!!!

    Morning all.

    Ian sir think your son coming home was better than seeing O & A live.

    Hand towels are small towels for drying your hands, usually found in guest bathrooms (not even going to tell you what DH calls that room).

    So what do you call dish-drying towels in the US?
    well, the way I learned it in design school...(but then again...what do THEY know?) was a "hand towel" is usually of terry-cloth type material..absorbent, and fluffy....a "Tea Towel" is usually a finely woven cotton or more likely, linen...very fine manufacture, elegant perhaps, meant for using when actually serving beverages (such as tea, perhaps?) and a "Dish Towel"...is often a "waffle-weave"...allowing for absorbancy but not terry-type fabric, which tends to leave lint on fine dishware, china and crystal...

    but...that is just my 2c :twocents:

    In Virginia, we also called the thin cotton/linen towels "tea towels."

    Oh my, I haven't seen those linen "calendar wall towels" (???) in ages -- but my mother loved them, and us kids always had to make sure that one of us got her a new one for Christmas every year! They really were beautiful, and useful too!

    I pretty much just called those "dish rags". As you can see..."elegance" is written all over me, eh? LOL

    Oh my? finely woven cotton, elegant? Waffle weave? Okay then. Ours are cotton, but definitely not elegant or waffle weave, though I've heard those things exist The way my DH uses them, it isn't worth buying good ones. He uses them as rags really, so I buy fairly cheap ones.

    And that's about the end of the weekend here, Sunday evening. All the washing & drying is done, I'm all caught up with it now and the new machine is way quieter than the old one. DD is off on yet another adventure, a week on a square rigged boat. I so wish I could've gone to her school, she gets such great opportunities. Plenty of time for life to get hum-drum later.

    Have a great evening/morning all!
