    Ok since we all have such wonderful memories….have you ever read a thread and went to answer it and can’t remember what you wanted to say? Of course that wouldn’t be me :))

    I am so happy that I am not the only one mystified by the new format here. I kept thinking they might be working on it so I would wait awhile….not so!What puzzled me the most was the fact you don’t see a cursor to start typing! Ok so I am an old fuddy pants, I find change to be hard to get used to.  I just wish they would tell us when they are going to change things.

    I am not surprised but very happy to know that. It makes me wonder how many on this side of the line knows the words to their anthem? I am ashamed to admit I only know the first line:(

    Janet of course you both will be in my prayers! I have walked in your shoes so I really know what you are going through. I pray for the best results so keep us posted when you find out what is going on. And yes it does hit you in the strangest places when you least expect it.

    When I lived in Al our property was above the lake, my sisters was on the lake next door. One afternoon she called me and told me there was a turkey swimming across the lake. I told her to quit drinking and headed outside. Not too long after that, up her driveway came a huge turkey, walked right past me, across the road and disappeared into the pasture there. I hated to admit that to her but I did.

    It is cold this morning and it will stay  cold all day.I feel it in every bone in my body! Supposed to be even colder tonight then hopefully it will start to get warmer. I know some of you are much colder but for us it is extremely cold very early and we are not used to this. I am not sure what I will get into today, yesterday I spent the afternoon fighting with Verizon over my phone bill.  Since I moved here 10+ years ago they have drafted my account every month. While I was coming home from the doctors yesterday they started sending me emails that if I didn’t contact them right away they would cancel my phone as of midnight. So I called them when I got home and told them that the first of every month I deduct that amount from my account and they take it on the due date. Well they didn’t this month! Then she started telling me I had to go online and pay the bill. I wonder what would happen if I didn’t have a computer? She couldn’t answer that one. So I went online and after a lot of BS finally paid the stupid bill. All evening I kept getting text messages that if I didn’t contact them before midnight they would disconnect my phone. This continued all night! But this morning I still have a phone….is it possible that one hand doesn’t communicate with the other? If there was another phone company I would use it. Some of you may remember the hassle I got into a few years ago about my internet service with them. I finally went to Hughes Net and never had a minutes problem with them.

    Ok I have vented long enough, just had to get that out of my system:(

    Prayers continue for Charlene and all who need them. Stay warm and safe everyone….anyone not living in the Buffalo area say a prayer of thanks that you don’t live there!!!

    Wow Larry like it wasn’t bad enough they had to cut the spleen? I am glad she is ok, now you be careful you have had a stressful time too. I am glad your kids are close by for support too. Give the girl a big hug for us and keep one for yourself.

    Thank you Lair. I have been checking all evening and now I can go to bed and get some sleep. She will have a few bad days but she is a fighter so I am sure she will do well. Now to keep her from overdoing it too soon.

    He is going to be one pooped out guy by the time he gets home. Having been through that waiting many times it can wear you down!

    So sorry you won’t be able to go but it sounds like that was the best decision…it may have been too much for her and for you too.  I used to love to fly but the last few times I did it wasn’t a pleasant experience. “Fly the friendly skies” is long gone now.

    Good Morning Charlie, Charlene and all..yes today is Charlene’s surgery.  It is a cold one here but we are spared all of the snow that is still falling in the Buffalo area. I just heard on the news that EVERY state, including someplace in Hawaii has freezing temps this morning….that is unreal. I hope everyone stays warm and safe from this horrible weather. If it is like this in the fall…what is winter going to be like?

    There is hot coffee, tea and cocoa on the table,  I brought my waffle iron and the batter for waffles, there is sausage and bacon too….Have a hearty warm breakfast before you go out into this cold.

    My first thought this morning was you Charlene, with all of the love and prayers I am sure everything will be ok.  Do you know that my first time on the board it was Larry going through his heart problems ?  The love and concern for him and you that time made me want to be part of the board. I know that heaven is being bombarded with prayers today for you. God Bless you and your family today and every day.
