So sorry I haven't been on here for quite sometime.  Thanks DJ and Mary Jane.  Didn't mean to cause anyone to worry about me.  I have been busy with all sorts of things and also, two of my girlfriends have cancer and I'm helping where I can.  Yup, makes life seem worth living when I find good homes for homeless dogs.  I've been out with friends as well and now preparing for the holidays.  Having 2 buffets in December and gee, I think I forget how to cook for more than one person.  LOL

Bless you all, you are in my thoughts and heart always.

OMG, Steve, that is awesome news. YAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!

In my heart of hearts, I always believed you would be ok.

Thanks for the opinion of my daughters song. SheDOES have a wonderful voice...always has. She used to have her own band, when in her 20’s, with her husband and a friend...they always played at clubs and social events..but as she got older, life takes over, and that ship sailed. Too bad. I used to sing a lot, entered shows on cruise ships, got a standing ovation once..but age, time and smoking have ruined my voice...but the dreams were nice to imagine.

i hope you and Chuck go out and celebrate life tonight.u deserve it.

Good news, I completed my radiation treatments.  No more long drives daily (60 miles round trip).  My blood test came back for PSA as 0.03 (in layman terms ZERO) the cancer cells are gone.  I will still be taking a hormone shot once every 3 months for about another year plus keeping an eye on my blood work...just in case.

Each day I feel a little stronger and each day I count as a new beginning and a blessing.  Thank you one and all for your prayers and positive all the hugs!

Mary Jane, thank you for sharing your daughter's song.
Wow, very moving and she has a beautiful voice. Thanks again for sharing with us.

I have, this morning. She is fine..just busy with holiday preparation, and her animal charities, finding good homes for sweet dogs

she will be surprised we think of her and miss her. She is kinda like the rock that helps hold us amazing woman. At least in my other comfort besides all of you, is Steve and Chuck...they always know just what to say. When those 3 people are not here, I worry.

Has anyone heard from Marsha?  It's been an awfully long time for her to be silent.

Thank you Deb. Sorry I took so long to reply. I returned from CA large Wed. night., it was harrowing, but now the very hard part comes. I have to pack up my belongings, and list my house for sale.while I am still LIVING here! I don,t want people trapesing thru my rooms...but I cannot get a loan without selling this house.

i DID find some wonderful mobile homes..two of which I would have moved to right then.if I had been ready...but I actually went to see which PARKS gave me a good feeling...and I was right...there IS a noticeable “feel” of each park...14 years ago, it was so much we were having a BIDDING war on our home we were selling, so we just packed up and moved knowing we were going to get a huge amount of we just let the realtor take care of everything, and it worked out fine. Now that I am alone lending companies are afraid they won,t get their monthly payment...but my credit and Payment history is superior...ok I am ranting..sorry...on a good note, my PAIN level is a lot better in California...than in Oklahoma...must be the weather.

instead of getting off my tush, and packing, I just SIT here overwhelmed and do NOTHING.
