  1. This is my Third Christmas Alone and agreed to a short visit, then one of the Kids laid out the logistics for a family get together (everyone available) then I moved my dates ahead by four days......It will be lots of food and drink, and 99% family......Actually looking forward to this....
  2. Everyone needs a piece of paper of some sort that says they can Finish...Diploma, Certificate....etc...Gets them in the Door...Different world out there and Perseverance always succeeds....This young one is your purpose...
  3. Marg, My second Grandson is a wiz with computers and video graphics......and is also in adult school to complete his Grade 12....He's 18 now, and works about 20 hours a week....He's a strapping lad, 6 ft 2 in, must be 250 pounds.....Whenever I visit, or holiday with the family, we share a room......Fast forward 3 years now, our Mutual nick name is"Roomie"........I actually feel his successes....have good week end
  4. Marg what is HiSet test..? Equivalency...It's good to continue to apply the learning practices..... does she have her license yet or pre license?...those are always good motivators...This is noble effort your doing...good work
  5. I was at a function the other day and knew or was familiar with almost everyone but didn't say more than 50 words and left as early as was appropriate...Unless there is a few drinks in me, I'm in a shell.......But I feel 200% better now than I did a year ago...I can live with Grief and use my past as a Source of Joy aand strength....I got talking about baking cookies and laughed because I should have paid more attention when Ange did her baking....still downsizing...Putting some stuff for sale on line tomorrow....
  6. Snowed a bit last night but turning clear and cold next few days I'm told..I like clear and cool..
  7. Its the season, sharing a couple of pictures snow from the Mountains on recent to Alberta, and my Christmas decorations.......And last shot is snow to nite on the mountain...coming closer..And my latest Grandson...Turns 0ne on the ninth.... IMG_1594.MOV
  8. In Canada it has taken a decade to get the Police to concentrate on the Native Woman missing in this country....One area of concern is the "Highway of Tears"....This is primarily highway 16 up North but believe now it encompasses missing native woman across the country....Early excuses were high risk lifestyle, runaways, reserve life....all transparent...Girls being killed and RCMP not following up on it.......that no records thing hits a nerve(like they don't count)..in the 1800's didn't record Chinese deaths when building the railroads
  9. I grew up, the only boy with three sisters.....My Father always worked steady, and my Mother also once the kids were in school....I don't remember any strange goings on except the Heavy Duty social drinking when I was older........But no sexual abusives with any relatives.....I didn't even know about Gays/Queens/ Bi until I was 17......I was very sheltered or closed minded in my thinking....like one of John Mellencamps songs.........Marg, you can have Trump, piece of work....
  10. Gin, the physio will work, did she give you any stretches or easy exercises? Some of those therapists have magic fingers I got frustrated just down loading some Documents the other day. The Bank or my printers program didn't mesh and I went in circles for hours.....Finally shut everything down, unplugged, started over 20 minutes later...everything was fine but now I have sore neck from the self imposed tension.....I still take too much Advil but it gets me through.............Wet and Cold now, need Sunshine......Jim Nabors passed away..RIP
  11. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and gave thanks ....Up North our Thanksgiving was last month...Same tradition, lots of food and Football.....I'm still geared up on my downsizing plans...if anything, I will get 5000 lbs of stuff out of my house within next 6 or `7 months........This Christmas will be the first year I buy a Stuffed Turkey roll... and add pre made gravy and cranberry sauce....And I'll start eating two days early, because I'll be flying North on the 27th...Like many of us..I'm still not ready for the full Socializing, too many triggers...
  12. Marg, that sums it up pretty good.....Doc Halliday was outstanding person and great pitcher in both leagues...The community leaders echoed the same feelings Brandy spoke at the Celebration...I think he might have been 42...what a loss
  13. Sounds like you found Bull Dog pills, good..........Big girl pants, squeaky wheel, and your Southern tenacity will get your granddaughter the attention she needs...Patient Advocates are so necessary, and we will all need one at some time ...Good work Marg
  14. Gwen, a little late on this, I find the anniversary of the passing is the most difficult of all the dates....my thoughts are with you'''
  15. We are at that age when sorrow abounds, I light the candle for Angela every week after Mass.......(we never prayed that much before she passed away, but going back was on our list..., then my best friends mother took ill, another candle and prayers...sadly she passed away....I am at 4 candles(that's my limit) and got news today another friend had a bad diagnosis......(colon)... Not sure if its because of the personal Grief I've endured , but these new encounters with loss i find myself more understanding and sincere......And there is so much of it.....
