  4. Just a short hello to all of my friends at SG. It's been a long time since I've been on the board. I was sick for weeks with Bronchitis and I'm still feeling yucky. Hope everyone is feeling good and enjoying their summer. I hope to get some scrapping done SOON, but my mojo has left me. Hopefully she'll be back soon.

      Carol, I’ve wondered how you’ve been and it’s so good to hear from you.   I hope your mojo comes back and we see some of your layouts soon.    Take care.  :)

  5. Don'tcha love it when you click on "save" instead of "save as" and overwrite a completed Project Life psd file? Fortunately, I had already saved as a jpg. UGH.

  6. Got my new glasses but lost my mojo. Too much happening here at the moment. We leave in just over 3 weeks for 7 weeks in Europe & UK plus we are getting a Granny flat built on our sons property. We were hoping it would be almost done before we left as the build was due to commence on Aug 2. BUT the council took so long for the approvals building is not starting till next Tuesday. So it will be getting done while we are away and our son will have to be in charge. Hope it is to our specifications when we get back. Plus we have to transfer funds to his account so he can make the periodic payments as each section is completed.

  11. 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.

      So, the update is - the wedding was meaningful and lovely and it was so good to be with my second “family”.     I was so happy I was there and so was everyone else.   Luckily, I’d already arranged to drive home with friends so didn’t have to deal with an airport again.  And we made it home in 4 hours, 50 minutes with no trouble.   And that was with two 10 minute pit stops and a bit of heavy traffic a few times.   Here they are - first dance!
      Thanks everyone for your comments...

      The groom’s Dad is a lawyer and there’s talk of letters and compensation since the non-flight from beginning to end was a disaster.  We’ll see......

      And it got worse.  The bus didn’t get to us until 10pm and the driver only spoke Chinese.  Luckily a young man with us could translate, but as we went into foggy weather and the windows totally clouded over, the defroster didn’t work.   It was so scary as you literally could barely see a foot in front of us or the white line on the road.   At one point a guy came and knelt next to the driver with the translator and said he was a police officer and this was not safe and if he didn’t pull over at the next exit he would call the troopers to pull him over.  He finally stopped and the man and about 10 others got off and refused to get back on.   We continued but the same thing happened two more times, it was frightening.   No one met us at the airport with taxi vouchers at 4:30am as promised and there were no taxis there.  A couple ordered me an Uber and I arrived at the hotel 5am and slept 3½ hours.  Everyone was so happy to see me this morning and it’s nice to be so loved by my second family.   The wedding is in 3 ½ hours so  now on to happier things!  😊

  14. My new Dell laptop is on order...fast and it has 1 TB of memory so that should last awhile. I have to wait till the 22 or later to get it. Then all the transfer. I'm excited.

      That’s so exciting and one thing I dislike about my Mac - not a lot of storage.   Have fun and good luck Debby!

      It sure is. I have really enjoyed meeting Belle & Marilyn.

      We talked about you Laraine and our meeting and how we packed a lot into that little time.   We even went to the water and walking path where we took you.  And it was HOT, but it’s supposed to be now.

      Isn't it wonderful how you can meet someone in person and they are just as you imagined on SG? Fabulous experience!

      That is EXACTLY what we said as we parted tonight.   We asked each other and said we were just as we imagined.  It was like we always knew each other!
