Barbara, Thank you for your kind words. I had a busy day yesterday at Sunnybrook; operation is scheduled for April 19th, then we go from there. Hope you are doing well and looking forward to Easter and springtime.
I am finally getting around to replying ,many thanks,I have since tried to access your music site and have completely lost it,don't know where or how.The last day or two I have been making bread,and also a large pot of chili,and have just returned inside from the garden where I finally removed my turnips thanks again,sincerly.neale goodale
That would be great, Barb. I'd be happy to cover the mailing costs. I have binders with autographs all organized. Don't know what will happen to them, but maybe I'll pass them along to a Canadian museum or archives. Interesting to look back at them now- I don't have a signed photo of Pearson, but do have one of Louis St. Laurent.
Yesterday I rewarded myself for sandwich making and went to Niagara to play the slots. Twenty dollars went up to 50 and back down to zero! I didn't use your method with the spoon but will try it next time. There are lots of recipes for egg salad and adding a bit of parmesan cheese was yummy. Arranging a platter with sandwiches cut in four is pretty easy,the most time taking part was peeling. I miscalculated the amount of eggs needed and will be enjoying boiled eggs this week! Have a good day Barb.
