  1. I’m stuck in Newark airport.  Which is actually where I started out 8 ½ hours ago.  Delay. Delay again. On plane sat an hour.  Moved toward runway sat another hour.    Then pilot announced route to Rochester closed due to weather.   Awhile later they found another route but it was lower and longer so we didn’t have enough fuel.  Plus they were receiving notifications about our plane so it needed to be serviced.   So that flight was cancelled and all the rest tonight and tomorrow are full. So now they are bussing all of us to Rochester and the bus won’t get here til 9:30 pm. A 5 hour drive so we should be in around 3am or so......   I won’t even tell you about the outside walking and ramps and stairs to get to a bus to get to the plane in the first place. And then do it all again to come back..  Meanwhile the website announced us as landed in Rochester!I hope I get there by 4:30 tomorrow for the wedding.

      How exciting for you Marilyn. I really really enjoyed the day Ken and I had with Ngaire and Dave.... we all wished it would go on longer than it did.

  4. Hello, everyone! I’ve been missing you all. Life has been beyond hectic. I’m moving from the house that I have lived in for 22 years to a cute cottage half the size. PURGING! Hard to part with so much, but it has to go. Hopefully after the move I will be able to be a more regular participant. Miss you all!

      Ann, it is so nice to see you pop in and share your happenings. I hope the move and downsize goes smoothly for you.

  5. With all the ads in my local papers promoting Christmas in July sales it made me think about Christmas projects to give as gifts. My 91-year-old aunt is the last surviving member of my mom's family. I have three grand nephews and one grand niece. I would like to do a calendar for the year 2020 depicting our family (including my parents and grandparents) so my grand nephews  and grandniece could learn a little bit about our family each month. So here's my question to our fabulous designers... Are any of you planning on creating a calendar package for the year 2020? Has anybody else created a genealogy type calendar before? If so, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much and have a great day!

  6. I will be MIA for a week or so. We are leaving for a trip over to a very pretty harbor on Long Island with a huge fireworks show. I will catch up when I get back.

  8. Sorry I have been MIA for a while. Our son who had Influenza A was in hospital for 4 weeks. He is recovering at home. Then on Tuesday this week David was taken by the paramedics to hospital from the doctor’s surgery with a suspected heart attack. Turns out he has/had influenza A which has left him with viral cardiomyopathy. He came home yesterday with a whole new eating regime to get our heads around and lots of medication whereas before he wasn’t taking any. Then on Friday I had my second cataract surgery after it was postponed 3 weeks ago because my lens had not arrived at the hospital. But all good now & we can move forward.

      Laraine, you have been having a busy time with medical events. I hope that it all improves for each of you.

  9. It's been a rough week - my SIL is having heart surgery tomorrow and that's all I can think about. The surgeon has a 75% success rate but that does little to relieve my anxiety. I know I'm behind in CT work but just can't focus right now.  If you can send prayers or good thoughts his way, my family will appreciate it.

      I know I am late in adding my thoughts... hope that all has gone well. I know all about heart conditions. My Ken is still going strong after his main artery being 99% blocked 2 years ago.

  10. It is one year since my sister Sharon’s near fatal accident. I am so so grateful that the Lord spared her, and that she’s still here with us. She may be a bit broken, but she is so strong, and a fighter.

      Andrea, it is good news that you still have your sister and that she is still doing well in recovering. Where has that year gone?

  11. This afternoon I am going in for cataract surgery on my right eye. Will be so glad when it’s done & both eyes are working properly. I will still need glasses for reading & close work but at least I will be able to see more clearly than 10 feet in front of me.

  12. Happy Easter, everyone! :)

  13. We are heading off in the morning in our caravan for a 3week trip in to Western Queensland. It is called the natural science loop. We may discover some dinosaur bones (ha,ha) & will probably look for opals.

  14. Yesterday I finished the Dementia online course I was doing and now will start another one next month as I have gained so much knowledge from this one.

      The last test I did I received a mark of 90% and the two questions I missed I felt it was due to the wording of the questions - one had a true or false answer and I felt it was false but looked back at the notes it appeared to need the answer to be "true" which in the end was not the correct answer.

  15. Many of you know Julie Sherwood...a designer at many stores. She passed away from cancer today which was also her birthday. I met Julie at a scrapping meetup quite a few years ago. When I told her I loved her kits and would someday like to be on her CT, she immediately added my name to her group.  RIP, my friend.

      She was a talented designer. I own a few of her kits. I pray for her family and loved ones who are grieving.

  17. I talked to our son aka Humpty Dumpty this morning, they put him back together again.. He sat up and ate for the first time since Sunday morning. His surgery was over about 1 this morning. They had him up and walking with a walker but after about 4 feet he got rid of it and walked. He should make a great recovery. Thank you all for the support.
