Hello Everyone!!! I have not been on the board very much lately and have missed our "talks". It was good to have a thread where we (and anyone that wants to join) could "chat". This is and never was or will be an inclusive thread. I have missed everyone. I did see a post from Honora. That made me happy although she was sharing sad news. Honora we are still looking for you and wishing you the best. I read and printed the article that you posted. You are enlightening my life. Please stay in touch. (((Hugs to you))) Anne, I need a Danny and brother update if you feel like it. The strangest things have happened to the posts that I have written to you. It started when I immediately replied to you when Danny was hit. I have lost so many post that I had put all my energy in that I thought it was meant for me to reserve my thoughts for awhile. Google spell check was eating my entire post for a few days. I'm sure I was doing nothing wrong. LOL Mrdad, where are you? We need you. I've looked at the board some and know you are still around. What have you done with Fredericka? Melissa & Sue, how are you guys doing? We were just welcoming you and we stopped posting. I enjoyed your post and was happy to meet you. Rocky, I was enjoying your encounters of the old West. You are quite the Historian. I so enjoy our history. Wake, I was glad to see that you joined the other thread. I did not realize that you and Anne have so much in common with having children that are special. I can't tell you how much I admire both of you for the love that both of you show. That "lioness" spirit of a Mom shows so in both of you. I told Anne that she reminded me of a special friend in my life that has a very special daughter. You do the same. Sincere admiration to both of you. To all other members that would like to just "chat" please feel free to post on this thread. I hope it will be a good place where we can talk and have a few laughs.
