Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

Started by Kathleen Abbott. Last reply by Barbara yesterday. 29 Replies

Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Check Barbara on the train trip, if one of you has been ill, then another goes free to help with them. I only paid for one when bob and I travelled across Canada by train, both ways for the price of one over 65 . so maybe y0u can get one free, you will have to learn to limp......!!!!!!! 

I would love to get together too, we should make it an item. for all of us.

Fall sounds good. If you need a fourth on your trip give us a call????

Hi Barbara & Cynthia,

Wouldn't it be great if we three could meet up in the Fall!!!!

I will get back here sometime around the very end of October and the first week of November.

Wow Barbara!!     What an exciting time you'll have!!

Good morning Cynthia.  I hope you got back to sleep.  I won't know until sometime in the summer when I;m going. I want to take the train out and they have last minute deals.  We're all open to spur of the moment things so that will be what it is.  But I'll let you know. It would be good to meet you. We're going to be in the interior and probably taking a trip right up to  the Alaskan  border while I'm there.  They're both wildlife photographers as am I and we want to shoot as much as we can.

Well hello everyone and a Happy Easter to you all. hope the Easter Bunny is good to you all., My Granddaughter is arriving Thursday from Edmonton for two weeks, she has a boyfriend in Abbotsford, so I expect I will not see too much of her, but it will be greet fun anyway.

I am having a get together here on Saturday for the family and I am going to a friends for Dinner on Sunday, so well and truly spoiled.

I have been offered to go back to Mexico with three other ladies in November , this will keep the price of the condo down, as it is very cheap as it is another friend's place, very beautiful.

Let me know when you are going to the Okanagan Barbara and I will try and see you if I am at my sons in Penticton. I missed Rocket, this year but will definitely meet her next year.

I am having trouble sleeping as this is going out at 3.00 in the morning, but can always catch up in the afternoon....aren't we lucky.

Was that an old message Rocket? I didn't even look at the date. Oh well, I'm glad I sent it just in case.  

I forgot you were in the Okanagan.  I'm going there in the fall.  Friends of mine just moved there.

The snow was gone until today.  We got another 10 cm.  Two days ago it was 18 and right now it's -5.  Don't know what it going on with this weather.  Someone said we're going too skip spring and jump right into summer.  i could do with that.

I bit down too hard chewing on a bone last week and lost one of my front teeth, one of the few I have left on the upper. The dentist says he can't put it on my partial so I have to have the rest of them out and get a full plate.  I guess I can live with that as they are going to do it all in one day.  But it better be on time (they keep postponing the date)  As it is it's only a week before my birthday and my son is planning a big one.

Anyway everyone have a Happy Easter.

Hi everyone,

Happy Easter to everyone. Hope you will be spending a meal with someone. I will be doing dinner on Saturday. My daughter is due in the next couple of weeks. and I have been having a blast with sciatica flareups. I'll be forever grateful if I can ditch this pain! Be well and I have everything crossed for good weather. Yikes!

I got an old message yesterday.... two or so years old....from this site from a Dorothy???

Maybe just a glitch??

Sunny and warm here in the Okanagan.  Leaving here on May 5th and will be back in Thunder Bay on Mother's Day.  Sure hope the snow is all gone!!!!!


Comment by barbara craven yesterday

Of course Dorothy. Just navigate to Widowed folk on Zoomer's and up on the right hand side you'l see a box that says sign up or sign in.  Just sign up and you're in.  Welcome.  The others will be delighted to see you.  It's not a good thing that you have to be here, but it's a good thing that you found us. If you have any trouble just let me know.  Here you can talk about anything you want to.   We've all been through it and maybe we can help.

Comment by Pat Connaughan on March 31, 2014 at 7:24pm

Right now I'm running Windows XP but I had to buy a new one because I've had this one for quite awhile and it can't be upgraded.  Thanks for your offer of help but my computer has an excellent doctor who is going to set the whole system up for me.  I may need your help, though, when it comes to actually using Windows 8.1.  My son was bound and bent that I was going to get a Mac but when I tried using 8.1, I found it very similar to my tablet which is an android.  Turns out he hated his android phone and went back to an iPhone.  It took some getting used to but now I'm perfectly comfortable going back and forth between the two systems.

Comment by barbara craven on March 31, 2014 at 7:02pm

Thank you for those kind words my dear.  It just so happens that you both touched on the two things that consume most of my life right now.  People have always helped me when I needed it and if I can repay them by helping someone else everybody wins. I needed a little cheering up right now.  My friends left around noon and already I miss them more than I imagined I would.
