Mary Jane I love Melinda's music! Thanks for posting that link.
Marsha, glad you are okay; I'm a creature of habit, so when your pattern changed...
Sheri: yay! Will you be updating your blog
Steve: it’s gratifying to hear good things happening to good people!
Debora, Chicago, Sara, Trina, Georgia, Charles, Pete, … and all you other regulars past & present / frequent or sporadic – thanks for sharing, thanks for caring.
Great to see good news this past little while, to see there is light at the end of the tunnel – especially for those who will be, sadly, joining our ranks.

Sheri ...  I am so happy you have found someone to be in your life and you deserve it.  It's been 7 years for me and I have found no one ...  spinach in my teeth?  LOL

Steve ...  I am so happy to hear you are finished with your treatments and doing much better.  I pray for all of us each night without fail so there are miracles helping!  Just keep getting stronger and know that we miss you.  Wish I could hug you in person and celebrate!  

Your Sis

Mary Jane ...  the songs absolutely beautiful and quite different which is refreshing.  Quite a talented young lady.  Hope she keeps it up.  Is that her singing?

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.

That is wonderful! Congratulations!

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.
