"Hi everyone I don't come on here much anymore, but when I got a letter from Cynthia about her grandchild, I thought I'd better check in. I don't know if I told you all I had to move because I couldn't keep the place and my…"
"Hi Bob and welcome. It's been so long since I, or anyone else has been on here, I forgot it existed. People, this man is one of the whizzes I mentioned before. Are you working with windows 10 on any of your machines Bob? I'm sticking with…"
"Morning all. Everyone is giving good advice Valerie. One day at a time, no major decisions for at least a year. I was told a little thing way back that helps immensely. It will be hard at first, but as you go along it gets easier.…"
"Hi Gang. sorry to be out of it fr such a long time, but it's been a funny year. I's been s long, I just skimmed through the posts. It looks like everyone had a busy year too. I've had a rocky year health wise, but…"
"Good morning Cynthia. Well you certainly have had changes in your life since we last heard from you. Sounds all positive. What a wonderful trip to have. I'm envious. although I might go over to Ireland in the…"
"Hi Cynthia. You sure have been one busy girl. I guess I shouldn't talk May has been one thing after another. From now on I think I can just relax and enjoy the summer. I don't know about the BC trip and probably…"
"Hi everybody. Sorry I haven't been in the last few days. My sister has been visiting and we had a reunion here on the weekend with some cousins we never knew we had until last year. They live in Ireland and came over for a…"
"Hi all. Pat don't give up with the gardening. If you have to go away, fill a tub with water and put a long piece of cloth (just a narrow strip) from the tub to your planter, and it will act as a wick to keep the planter damp.…"

"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.

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.
I wish you a good day today. Winter can be long and staying home as you must do for your health right now,I imagine must require a whole lot of patience.
I don't know when I will get around to fixing my pictures,they are from my Blackberry. I like the way your slideshop appears and as I write this I am glancing up to enjoy them. Even the winter scene you are using as wallpaper appeals to me. Perhaps you have a laptop computer which my sister urges me to get,so far I am sticking with the old slow desktop. I take comfort knowing there are only 12 days before Spring,little snow drops are already popping up in some of my neighbours gardens,and in Hamilton we enjoyed rather warm temperatures the other day,it gave us a brief glimpse of Spring,but the weather is fickle. Any way,Barb,I have to boil and peel 36 eggs today to make sandwiches for an event tomorrow,wish me luck!
Good morning, Barb. Your page is looking good. I may be sitting on it for a while to listen to your music. I hope you got a good rest. It was a treat having you here. And thank you again for the wonderful lunches, the wine and eclairs, and your help in picking the new bedding.
Now I have about three hours of material ready to be transcribed and that's just the first batch, so must get at it.
