knitting question and wieners

How long should a stole be? When is it finished? My Mom's birthday stole is at 5 feet currently. Should it be longer or am I finished?

I put in the question over at the knitty board and there seems to be some debate as to how long a stole/shawl should be.

a. Should be armspan length or height.
b. Depends on how a person likes the stole/shawl to drape.
c. Depends on the recipients "girth".
d. Length should be 60"-70" in length.
e. Object will stretch once it's blocked.
f. Object should wrap around shoulders and touch a person's waist.

I'd be interested in other people's opinions about this as well. Let me know what you think.

On a different note, Summer is now officially here! The last day of school was today and the Memorial day holiday is past us.

Over the weekend, my youngest got to experience a pool for the first time. He was fine until we put him in a life jacket, then he got mad:

Yesterday the kids played in a new sprinkler that we got. When we went in, the eldest complained that he "was so cold, he was freezing his wieners off." Evidently God now issues multiple weiners to little boys. Who knew?
no more wieners
