I got a Christmas card from her the other day. She amazes me that she goes about her business with these health issues haunting her life right now. First her DH, then her MIL, and now it seems to be her turn.

Did I ever tell you, Barb. that I sent her the TP PC I'd "misplaced" when we had that swap a while back? It was the one of the blue gloves (I'd sent you the photo before I lost the darn thing!) worn by Charlie Parkhurst in Adam's book "Rough, Tough Charlie". He also kindly gave me one of the copies of the books he has and signed it for her. Several years ago our tax laws were changed and publishers who maintained stock had to pay taxes on any books they held which hadn't sold yet. This led to many children's books no longer being in print. The authors and artists were offered the opportunity to buy up this extra stock before the books were destroyed. Adam took advantage of this and has several boxes of some of his illustrated titles, Rough, Tough Charlie being one of them.  About a month ago I was clicking on a link on FB and somehow followed along until I came upon a page for a girl's reading site that featured books that might be encouraging to young women (have no idea how I got there!). I put in Adam's name and up popped "Mind Your Manners, Alice Roosevelt!" and with further searching, I found the one about Charlie. They only had one copy and it was listed for over $1000! LOL I sent Adam the link and told him he was in the wrong business! Someday Terri may want to sell that book to pay any outstanding medical expenses! (Or maybe just take her dear hubby out to dinner! :D)

Sounds like Terri had her stress test, which surprised me with her aneriysem (sp) hope they can help her with her health problems quickly. She and her DH have been through a lot this last year. Prayers for quick recovery.

For those not on Facebook - Terri is in the hospital, getting lots of tests done, etc. Please be praying for her.

Sounds great Charlotte - Shame we can't get a discount of air fares.  Perhaps Sandy and I could come together.  Sandy needs to get away from an anoying noise coming from her sons garage and well ... I just need to get away!!!

Sounds like our friend Terri is having a worrying time. :(

Sandy, Lauren has just painted out the last of the green tiles with brown grouting in the bathroom.  We are now officially out of the 70's!  Remember how you had those in your kitchen and we had your bathroom tiles in our kitchen.  It's amazing what a bit of white tile primer and paint can do.  Let's hope she has done it correctly and it lasts at least a year or two.

Hey, Barb! You're in luck! Adam and his wife just bought the art school where he was teaching. Fly on up here for a month or so and we'll get you a deal on watercolor painting lessons from him! (I'll make sure you get a discount :D)

Great job on the self portrait, Sandy.

Oh, Sharon, isn't it just always something?! I wish you luck with your car troubles.

My goodness ... what a car story Sandy.  Do take care of your back!

Comment by Sandy B /AUS 15 hours ago

Wow Sharon what a car and what a trial for you. CARS!!!

We called in at DS home yesterday.opened the internal door and the car alarm was going! Not very loud. Being a hybrid it has an electronic key which did not work - how do we get in to it - later I worked there was usual key hidden inside the electronic one - over we went, opened the door, found the car manual, yes I had my glasses. We both checked the manual with my reading glasses. Nothing so we went to the local dealer and the lovely young man there explained an alarm sound when the battery is going flat and being sensor driven the electronics ALWAYS have an eye half open in case it is going to be used???? That is why it is going flat. Anyway we cannot disconnect the battery as it isn the boot and we cannot unlock the boot with the electronic key. The only way is top crawl across the inside of the car BUT we cannot open the roller door on the garage to gain room to open the boot. You guessed it - it is now waiting until DS gets home on the 27th, likely the road side assist company renewal is mid January so he can call them when he gets home from London. CARS!!!! LOL

Today we are being quiet at home - my back played really up this morning but has loosened now.

The journals sound marvellous QD - hope you are back on track with them. Now to - hmmm - look at a quilting magazine I think. Maybe some hand sewing - that will not hurt my back IF I remember my posture - grrrr. :-)
