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.

Hello all, I haven't been posting much because, a miracle! I started dating someone 2 months ago and it's very serious. It has been almost 2 1/2 years since I lost Bill, so I'm due. My new guy had just received the all clear on his PSA after going through prostate cancer surgery in late August. So he's due too. At any rate, I had made peace with the fact that if I never met anyone that I wanted to share my life with, at least I had the great love of my late husband for 11 years. And now I have a new chance and it's pretty darn awesome. So don't give up if you are seeking the same! It can happen.
