    Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I miss all my friends at SG and I hope to get back to scrapping soon.
  2. Hi everyone. Just checking in to let you know whats been happening with me so far this year. Started the New Year off in the hospital for parasintesis, my sister had hip surgery, so I was unable to have surgery on my hand. I fell twice, the second time was horrible. I couldn't get up and My sister wasn't home to I had to drag myself across the floor to get to the phone to that I could call my sister. I left a trail of blood behind me on my carpet. Just then my sister came home and found me on the floor. I have to have parasintesis done every two or three months. Had one done in January, one in March and another one this past week. I start PT this week to help me with my balance and coordination. I've been using a rollator and I don't like it.
  3. This is lovely. Love the border and all of the 12 Days of Christmas.

    Fabulous. A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sims is my favorite. He's the best Scrooge. My sister and I watch the movie every Christmas Eve. Your background is wonderful, especially the houses at the bottom.
  5. I love this sweater. Where can I get one? Love all the stars, lights and trees. Santa's bag is a great addition to the sweater.
  6. Woo Hoo! I'm going in for surgery on my right hand. It seems that the doctor that did my previous surgery didn't do both fingers: Middle, Pointer fingers. He only did my middle finger.

    Then I'm going to have knee replacement done probably around February or March.

    So I'll be able to get back to scrapping.

    Happy Holidays to all my friends.

      So happy to hear it. Looking forward to seeing your layouts in the gallery again after you recover. Hoping all goes well for both your surgeries.

      That's fabulous! It's such a relief when you have a date set up! I am three months post knee replacement surgery so I would love to hear how you go!

  7. Keep that brain working; see if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common?

    1. Banana

    2. Dresser

    3. Grammar

    4. Potato

    5. Revive

    6. Uneven

    7. Assess

    Give it another try....

    Look at each word carefully. You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer. This is so cool.....



    No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters....

    Answer is below: 


    In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.

    Did you figure it out? No? Then send this to more people and stump them as well. Then, you'll feel better too..... 

    I didn't get it either.

    Adorable little kitties and I love the template you used.
  10. Absolutely gorgeous. I love the orange colored overlay and that fabulous photo of the setting sun.
  11. It's partly sunny and around 88 degrees. Rain has stopped for the moment, but you never know.

    Hope everyone is well and enjoying their summer, for those who like this kind of weather.

    Can't wait for Autumn to come to New York and all those beautiful and colorful leaves.

      Carol, hope your health is okay. Still winter here in Australia but we did get a taste of spring for a couple of days early in the week then it turned cold again after some rain.

    Oldies but goodies

    I also love the one about sitting on the floor and not being able to get up. That happened to me just last week when I got down on the floor as I wanted to look under my bed for one of my shoes. Took me about half-hour to get up. My cat 'Leo' just sat on my bed and stared at me. Big help he was.
  14. Just thought you ladies would find these 'Oldies but goodies' funny. I love the last one. The devil whispered to me, “I’m coming for you.” I whispered back, “Bring wine” —————————— Having plans sounds like a good idea until you have to put on clothes and leave the house. —————————— It’s weird being the same age as old people. —————————— When I was a kid, I wanted to be older… this is not what I expected. —————————— Life is like a helicopter. I don’t know how to operate a helicopter either. —————————— It’s probably my age that tricks people into thinking I’m an adult. —————————— Marriage Counselor: Your wife says you never buy her flowers. Is that true? Husband: To be honest, I never knew she sold flowers. —————————— My wife asked me to take her to one of those restaurants where they make the food right in front of you. So, I took her to Subway and that’s how the fight started. —————————— I don’t think the therapist is supposed to say “Wow,” that many times in your first session, but here we are… —————————— I see people near my age mountain climbing; I feel good just getting my leg through my underwear without losing my balance. —————————— We can all agree that in 2016 not a single person got the answer correct to, “And where do you see yourself 5 years from now?” —————————— I’m at a place in my life where errands are starting to count as going out. —————————— I’m at that age where my mind still thinks I’m 29, my humour suggests I’m 12, while my body mostly keeps asking if I’m sure I’m not dead yet. —————————— Don’t be worried about your smartphone or TV spying on you. Your vacuum cleaner has been collecting dirt on you for years. —————————— I’m getting tired of being part of a major historical event. —————————— I don’t always go the extra mile, but when I do, it’s because I missed my exit. —————————— How many of us have looked around our family reunion and thought “Well, aren’t we just two clowns short of a circus?” —————————— You don’t realize how old you are until you sit on the floor and then try to get back up. __________________ A balanced diet is dark chocolate in both hands.
  15. Hi everyone. Long time since I've been here. Got my two shots and had a reaction both times. My hands have been really acting up along with my knee. Don't know what to do about them, aside from a knee replacement. Ugh!

    Hope everyone is okay and enjoying the nice weather.
