This image of a runner kissing an onlooker at the Boston Marathon went viral when the woman's daughter tried to find their mystery man. They got an answer, but it was from the man's wife.
Barbara Tatge locked lips with the man in Wellesley, where it's become tradition for supporters to give kisses to runners. When the man's wife heard about the quest to find her husband she reached out. Perhaps you'd think this would create an awkward situation, but the two women had a nice back-and-forth about it, according to the Associated Press.
"When this story aired on the news we were pretty surprised," the mystery man's wife wrote in a portion of the letter quoted by The Townsman. "For me, I'm not mad. Believe me, our friends have gotten a lot of mileage out of this story and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them give my husband grief!"
The wife continued: "While this may not be the ending that you had hoped for, that spontaneous, silly moment in Wellesley captured the fun, energy and spirit of the Boston Marathon. I greatly admire your spunk and courage and wish you many happy races in the future. Congratulations on your Boston finish!"
Tatge may not have found the man of her dreams, but it created an unforgettable moment.
"The letter was so kind and good-hearted," she said. "She's a great sport, and he's fortunate to be married to someone like her."
She jokingly vowed to only kiss single men if she returns to the Boston Marathon.
"Another theory suggested that there was already a system of underground tunnels below the closed Wal-Marts."
One of the best parts of the conspiracy theory embraced by top Republicans in Texas is the idea that shuttered Walmart stores are actually being prepared as either staging areas or detention facilities for President Obama's planned military takeover of Texas. Some theorize that the military and Walmart may be preparing tunnels connecting the shuttered Walmarts as part of the takeover. But Walmart now says there's "no truth to the rumors" that they're involved.

tumblr's primary effect on me lately is to make me feel like I should watch some bergman films (I have watched none, as far as I can recall); this probably means something terrible about me, culturally

The May issue of Seamwork is up and ready for you to read!
In this issue:
Some favorite quotes from this issue:
“The creative process is a series of highs and lows, and that’s just the nature of the beast.” -Emily Adams, Professional Help
“Developing a personal color palette allows you to sew clothes that always make you feel beautiful. Color then becomes an integral element in your design process that allows you to create garments that are a true reflection of your style and unique features.” -Elizabeth Farr, Design a Personal Color Palette
“Peasant blouses are prime examples of a commitment to creating beautiful clothing despite little resources. These blouses often used no more than a yard of fabric, but hours upon hours were poured into the needlework.” – Behind the Seams: The Peasant Blouse
And here are the two new quick-to-sew patterns in this issue:
Adelaide is a simple shift dress with a snap front closure, that is ideal for spring and summer. Sewn up in chambray or linen, this dress is the perfect throw on garment for the warm days ahead.
Sydney is a wrap-style layering piece, that perfectly tops off a sleeveless frock. Use a light weight woven like lawn or rayon to make a breezy topper for your summer sun dresses.
