Donation from The Pelican State

Thank you long time supporter, Sandie P from Louisiana for these crocheted cotton washcloths. Cotton washcloths are always appreciated at all 3 shelters. Sandie hails from Louisiana, a state with many nicknames. I've read Louisiana has more nicknames then most kids do. Apparently back in 1872 is known as The Creole State; but those folks in northern Louisiana took exception to this name. They thought it meant African Blood, obviously there was a misunderstanding. It's been known as The Bayou State, The Pelican State, and Tha Durrty Boot, The child of Mississippi. The longest standing nickname though is The Pelican State, and The Pelican is in fact the state bird. Although, many locals prefer calling it, The Sportsman's Paradise due to the abundance of good fishing and hunting.

Whatever it's nickname, we're thrilled to have your on going support Sandie. Keep up the good work.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
