  1. Hi Shelley I sort of figured thats where I would find his greeting.I too miss Sherrill so much and I hope that David is doing okay.Do you happen to know how her mom is?Sherrill worried about her mom so much and she was up there in age so she had reason to be concerned. I hope that you and yours are doing well too.Oh and do yu ever hear from Heidi?I miss her too.Take care Shelley and thanks for always being there for us.Smiles,Mary
  2. :rolleyes: I really hope that I can do this on here.I know that in New Zealand its already Jan.6th.That happens to be David Knagg's birthday and I wanted to wish him a happy birthday. It also happens to be my oldest son's birthday as well and I remember Sherrill and I having that in common. So I wanted to wish David the very best birthday although I'm sure it could be very different for him now. So David have a good day and we think of you often. Mary
  3. Thanks a lot Shelley,I'm glad you talked to her and that all is going well with her.I'm sure she is pretty busy with her husband and I wish them all the success in the world in that pursuit.I bet that is a full time job too.So thanks for letting me know I really appreciate it alot.Tell her hi for me next time you'll chat.Hows your son doing in Houston now?Has the power come back on where he is?I certainly hope so! love and hugs Mary
  4. I;m just wondering if anyone ever hears from Heidi I miss her and was just curious if anyone kept in touch with her.Mary
  5. Hi Janey and all of you who replied.Well we stayed because we had gone to Houston for "Gustav"and when we heard it would go in around Brownsville well we figured we're far enough away whcih we were.Houston wasn't an option anymore when we started hearing that he would go in to Galveston and that area but the thing is that he was so big and WIDE that it took the southwest coast too and I don't live near the coast either.this house we live in was built in 1953 it was the house my husband grew up in and like I said we've stayed for a couple of them before.LILY back in 02-03I can't remember.Now my
  6. Hi Shelley, I hope your son can get power soon, its so hot to be without it. I also am sure you've seen all the pictures they sure did get hit hard as did some of them here. A friend sent me some pics today and its really a wonder that anyone survived that. I cannot imagine what it would have been like if it had been a category 3 or 4 or even 5! We had a hurricane here in 1957 that was named Audrey and it happened in Cameron, Louisianna. Back then they didn't have the technology we have now and those poor people thought they had until the next day which was a Thursday but she came ons
  7. Well guys this is getting to be a habit.Had just barely gotten home from Gustav and here comes TERRIBLE IKE". We stayed home however and everything is okay but I was so scared I didn't sleep the noise of the winds from a hurricane are deafening and the rain was so hard. Our youngest daughter called from Houston at 5:00 am and it was there. They lost power and water and just got it back today she emailed me a few minutes ago. I know how miserable that had to have been as for Rita we were without power for 12 days but we did have water. When I watch tv now and see what happened everywhere here
  8. Oh good old Barbs we can count on her to bring us some laughter! Having joined about the same time that Barbs joined this board I also know personally how she never stops surprising you.I LOVE her blogs as well.She's also such an inspiration as she has really been through the mill in the last years.I'm so glad that now she can enjoy herself.Just wish sometimes she could put me in one of her bags when she goes to Greece again lol.Keep it up Barbs we depend on you to keep us laughing.I als know full well about the goose stories as for a long time we had some,as well as ducks and chickens too.I r
  9. Hi Janey just read your post.Well its not looking for Ike and I'n having to convince my husband to leave.You know they can be hardheaded! Anyway we'll keep watcing and hope nothing comes of it.Thanks for thinking of me.Mary
  10. Hey all of you thanks for your nice replies.I tell you though that trip really ;took it our of me.I just can't seem to bounce back from the trip,guess being that it was so long and so stressful I watched my daughter have to fight traffic with some people that just don't seem to have 'common sense'.They just try to cut you off first chance they get.I forgot to mention that we also evacuated our pets as well.Now that was funny.My daughter and I rode in her car with the two cats in their own little 'pet taxis'and my husband and son-in-law with our two little dogs.And then my daughter that lives i
  11. Well I'm jumping in rather late on this topic but I also live in the country.I also love hummers and the other day my husband called me out to the front porch to see something so beautiful! A swallowtail huge butterfly was sipping nectarfrom the hummingbird feeder.He let us get close enough to take a picture.My 7 year old grandaughter loves butterflies and has a huge colored illustrated book on butterflies and moths so I've seen a butterfly moth in pictures and they are pretty.We also have deer here and many a time will see them cross the road if we're on it late as we also have a casino about
  12. Well my husband and I had to evacuate AGAIN (Hurricane Rita 3 years ago).This time our oldest daughter and husband and grandchild took us to Houston to our youngest's house.A trip to Houston from where we live here in La.is about 3 hours.It took us 7 hours to get there and that was before mandatory evacuations were announced.We arrived at 6:10 and all went to bed and didn't get up until 3 that afternoon.Its so hard when you don't feel good my poor husbands feet were so swollen I wound up giving him my Lasix.It helped him.My son-in-law is a chef so next morning we had eggs.sausage biscuits,fre
  13. Hi all and thanks for the replies.I too am so glad that I was diagnosed at a later age.I was 53 then and its 10 years later so now I'm waiting on medicare.2 years to go yet.Spoke to my daughter and her friend is not handling the news well.She said that she refused to take prednisone if it meant it would make her gain weight.My daughter tried to convince her to please listen to her doctors orders.My daughter also told me she has the mouth sores really bad even under her tongue with the 'chalky stuff'draining from them.That doesn't sound too good.Luckily she was already on pain meds as she also
  14. Oh wow I jumped in at just the right time! I LOVE to read and when I don't have something to read its like I've lost something. Mysteries are my favorites too, I also love John Grisham James Patterson Tom Clancy so many I can't remember their names. Fortunately my daughter in law has the same tastes I do in reading and brings me BAGS of books, which I devour. Not long ago I sent a bag back to their house with my son and she said "Where does your mom find the time to read all these books? He replied , She doesn't have a 5 year old and a 3 year old anymore to keep her from reading. I can't unde
  15. Hi everyone I finally went to my doctor appointment for results of cat scan and the news is good. Its just a small nodule just big enough for the chest x-ray to pick up. It hasn't changed and he doesn't feel its anything to worry about.In 3 months we'll do another and see if its still there etc. If it there still another cat scan but he said being I never smoked he's not too worried about it being lung cancer or something like that.So I'm happy and slept good last night. On the down side my daughter called me on her lunch hour and told me that one of her friends had just been diagnosed with sc
