    Hi everyone! I've missed you all a lot.

    I'm sorry for being MIA again but have just had to severely limit time on computer and some days stay off it. But am healing up better now, at long last.

    So, I am looking forward to catching up with all of you, anyone I know, on the whole board.

    I know the most in the Porch so wanted your attention first. I'm the old lady off her rocker. LOL!!

    I've missed all the fun with you guys, and especially those 2-fer dinner coupons with MRDAD. I bet you got a fistful of 'em by now. You're probably using them with someone else. Sniff, sniff, boo-hoo.

    I need to read many Volumes to catch up!!

    I surely do hope you are all doing well.

    I read part of today's and I see Rock is somewhere near my neck of the woods!!!

    Take care, all of you. Again, I'm sorry for not being around.

    I pretty much had a frozen rotator cuff injury (again!) and it has been excruciating to say the least. Even at night. 24/7 for at least three weeks. Quite long enough.

    Hey, I can now shampoo and dress without screaming!!!!

    Well, now I'm back, so look out!!! LOL!!

    You guys really help keep a person going. What a great bunch.

    See you later!! I'll be reading a lot and trying to catch up!

    Hi Freddie,

    I am fairly new on the board and to the porch but hav been thoroughly enjoying it and everyone. Have been learning so much and making new friends with lots of humor. As you know that helps alot when dealing with almost constant pain.

    Glad to hear you are feeling better and will be back soon. I cannot keep up with al the posts myself so I know how hard that will be esp if you are out alot like I am. You were just out of commission.

    Hope you are feeling alot better and will be on the Porch again pdq !

    Warm hugs and blessings,'

    Marilyn (that Granni)

    Glad to hear from you. We have all been missing you.

    Hope you get your cuffs and hems straightened out asap.

    Every since my visit to the great Northwest I have been sleeping better. Good thing I brought back a gallon jug of that fresh Oregon air.

    I missed you sO-O-O MUCH!!! I was so affaid that you
    were hurting and I was correct. Pain is such a horrible
    thing to have to endure, and I've been much luckier than
    many on the Board so far! Looked yesterday to verify
    the last time you were with us here and it was 2 wks ago!

    Sorry, but when you didn't show for that candle light
    Dinner a week ago Sat., it took me three days by my self
    to eat that platter of Italian Rigoleto and the bottle
    of Chateaubriand, 20 minutes.

    When Rock did not mention seeing you on his trip to Port
    -land, I really bec. concerned. And here I really fig-
    ured that his real motive in goin' up to Portland was to
    try and "beat my time" wiff you! I owe him an apology.
    SORRY ROCKY!

    And I wouldn't use those 2-Fer coupons on anyone but
    you! From cutting them out, I have developed that Cor-
    poral Tunnel syndrome wiff pain in my right wrist. Have
    a whole attache' case full of them now! It's good I
    have so many of the Chef Salad one's so we won't destroy
    that beautiful VICTORIA'S SECRET model figure of yours!

    My "Wife" and her husband emailed me the other day in-
    viting me up to Oregon for Thanksgiving as they did last
    year. His adult children and my Son and Daughter will,
    of course, be there also! Hope to fly into Portland
    from Oakland Ca. on the Eve of the Mon the 20th. Gonna'
    have them coupons wiff me, so who knows hah??

    Really happy that you are feeling better as I can tell
    from your writing's that you are normally a fun and gre-
    garious personality!

    OXOXOXOXOXOXIMISSEDU!

    So glad you wrote us. MrDad has been pacing around the Porch with his sack full of 2-fer coupons muttering Where's Freddy.

    I'm sorry to hear about your frozen rotator cuff. I hear that's very painful.

    As you can tell, it's nearing the end of the day for me when I begin to write like a Dick and Jane book.

    See you soon. Your hug is still on your chair waiting for you.

    Missed you on the porch lately. Mrdad has been "beside himself", yup! I always wondered where that saying came from LOL.

    Sorry to hear about your rotator cuff. My hubby had to have surgery on both of his and I understand the pain you've been going through! Can you lay down to sleep, or was it the recliner for you too? Glad it's better.

    Hope you're back to the porch soon! To be honest, Mrdad is the only one worried about your figure, so there will be plenty of treats you can sneak when he's not looking!!

    We have missed you. Poor mrdad and poor Freddie. I am sorry you have felt so poorly. There have been many on The Porch, including myself, that have been having some difficult days too but not as difficult at you.

    We are waiting for yur return. K?

    Hey Freddie, so sorry to hear about all the pain you've been experiencing, but so glad that you're feeling better. I know what you mean about trying to catch up on the Porch posts. I've been feeling pretty awful so it's very difficult to keep up. I get confused reading some of the longer posts....my brain is so drained.

    But, it really is good to hear from you. Stop by the Porch when you can if just to say hi. You can see by all these posts how you brighten everyone's day ('specially mrdad)

    Take care,

    Lolalee

    It's so nice to see how many folks missed me!

    You guys are all the greatest. I still have lotsa catching up to do.

    Still limiting computer time. Have to be careful awhile longer.

    No, I can't sleep in a recliner either so I was up a lot of many nights. Up and down, move around, hope I don't hit the ground. Haha.

    I know many of you have it really rough and are here anyway. I'm trying to work back into things gradually.

    SO GOOD to see you all.

    Rock! You were practically on my front doorstep!!! What part of OR were you in? I'm halfway between Portland and Salem. Worked in Portland for some 10 odd years.

    I hope you have fun at Thanksgiving, MRDAD, with your wife and step-husband.What part of town are they in?


    See you guys tomorrow.

    Why you're a Brave "lil soldier crawling your way out of
    that foxhole just to get back to me! The others inquire
    of me that ya may be GONE but I don't believe it for a
    second! I always know that in the final analysis I mean
    much more to you that that Modeling Career wiff Victoria's
    Secret.

    My Wife and her Husband live outside of Eugene, it's my
    Daughter who is in Portland! I know you're gonna want to
    meet me when I get off the Plane, but I'm coming in too
    late in the evening. Keep the weather nice for me, OK?
    It was 71 here yesterday but has cooled since then. Love
    the part about the "Step Husband"! If ya made that up,
    there could be a place for you on the Comedy Tour, isn't
    that right Rocky? The "Wife" doesn't know yet but HE
    invited me up for Xmas too while I spoke wiff him in Aug!
    Think I'll spend it here as I have a large family in the
    Bay Area and getting bigger! How's your 'lil 3 y.o Nep-
    hew?

    I'm sorry you've been having such a painful time. Not be-
    ing able to sleep is and added ingredient to the misery
    I'm sure. Have you spoken wiff the Sisters about their
    trip? I fealt so-o-o bad that you were unable to go with
    them. We all understand if ya can't come to the Board but
    just remember (as you know) we are all thinkin' of ya
    dailey! Hope we get a chance to "talk" before my trip!
    I haven't been to my Daughter's new APT. yet but should
    be up there for a week.
