My dear friends ...

I am so sorry I haven't posted, but not getting anything in my 'in box' notifying me.  Had this problem before.  I checked a couple of weeks ago and no one was posting.  I appreciate all of you caring as to how I am.

I know this virus has been tough on everyone.  We are a little more fortunate in British Columbia than parts of the U.S., but still line-ups to get into Costco and a few other grocery stores; all restaurants closed, but people can have food delivered from their kitchens and places like Tim Horton's you can use the drive-through.  Numbers are going down as to how many people are getting the virus (most survive) and it's the nursing homes that are hit badly.  I live alone with my 2 dogs and it can get lonely even though I get numerous phone calls.  Thankfully I have good neighbors to the right of me that keep a look-out for me and I do the same for them.

I also just recently had a very close girlfriend pass away unexpectedly and it was a big shock for me.  I knew she had cancer, but from what she told me she was winning the battle.  Unfortunately, because of this virus her memorial won't be until all is safe from this virus.  My other dear girlfriend had her husband pass away last April 27th and the odd thing of it is that her husband passed away on the same month and day as my Ernie did.  I have been very supportive for my girlfriend and we talk often on the phone.  Then she got the bad news that her 47 year old daughter has cancer and it's one problem after the other and it's not looking good so I'm there for my girlfriend as best I can.  

Still take my dogs for a walk and go grocery shopping and I'm dizzy from all the arrows pointing here and there up the aisles and generally it's not the aisle I want.  LOL  I've been talking to my dogs a lot and good Lord, they are talking back to me and with attitude!  Rain or shine they want their walk.  I can't tell where my hairline and my eyebrows are anymore. :)  I've been eating so much I've had to change the light in my fridge twice!  Gotta keep walking my dogs.

I'm tough, I'll be OK and thanks to my angels for caring.  I hope all of you are coping well and I do think of all of you.

Lots of Love & Hugs

Hi All,

I have been thinking of Marsha too, how she has not posted in a while. Normally she is very active on this forum. Hope she is well.

I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.

Take care and have a good day.
