    Lynnie maybe you should post the above on the SP board as lots of people don't come over here to the RAK board... Just a suggestion... Maybe they don't know about the board for RAK's right now give them the benefit of the doubt...
    I just realized that myself, I don't come here often, just when I see a message... Think about it all of you who have sent RAK's...

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone... God Bless Rosemary

    No Raks here... I always say thank you.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Lynnie, I have ever only received one RAK - from you and I did respond. I sent two, heard on one, so I guess it's the recipient not know ing where to go to say thank you.

    AMEN ladies, I agree, it's just plain rude NOT to say thank you for anything received! I haven't received any RAK's, but have sent items out and not received not one 'received or thank you' from the person, and yes, they were received. I have a low tolerance for rudeness - it's just courtsey to acknowledge a gift, or anything received for that matter! I recently posted on Secret Santa about just posting that a pkg. was received. It was received on the 19th, nothing posted! Sorry to rant, but your postings hit a nerve...lol

    I think we all have that same nerve Oksewnsew. Perhaps a New Years Resolution - remember to thank someone ---??

    There should be no excuse not to send a pm to the sender. I will accept extreme hardship and death,maybe, but otherwise ... I know some say you should send a gift from the heart and not require public acknowledgment; but with the cost of things today plus the increases in postage,l I want confirmation that my package or envelope got there and the person appreciated it. If not, then I would correct their address in my listing or take their name off the list for any future mailings or trading. Things are going to get tough economically over the next few years for many of us. We can't afford to waste finances or our efforts.

    Apologies to those who have already read this elsewhere, but I wanted to be sure to post it where I know some of you hang out. Hello to all you wonderful, loving quilty friends! I've missed you all so much. Before I write a single sentence more, I need to tell you how much the support and generosity of so many of you has touched me. I have never experienced such an outpouring of love and kindness like it. You are all angels. As you no doubt have heard, our home is almost completely destroyed and almost everything in it is full of sewage and mold. The good news is that we have an apartment that is dog friendly. My son Blaze is staying at Melissa's parents' home and I miss him terribly. It is also so hard to be here alone during the day. My husband, Rod, has been working a lot of overtime in Long Beach and we have only one car. There is plenty to fill my days, unfortunately. Mostly with being on hold for an hour or two with adjusters who never call you back - or waiting for internet service, electric, etc. We finally got a bed but other than that we have a couple of office chairs and a cardboard box. Our computers were damaged so I am learning how to use a new one that has the very confusing Windows 8. Without it I will not be able to pull together the pieces of my business and hopefully the insurance company will pay for it eventually as it is now on a credit card . Dealing with insurance companies, adjusters and FEMA is a full time job and one that often drives me to the edge of sanity. I was in such a state one day that I called my doctor. His home and his office are gone and so are all of my medical records. Happily I found a new one up the street from our apartment and let me tell you, Xanax helps me get through the days that I need to go back to the house. One day I had to meet the FEMA inspector there and told my husband that I would be fine until he got off work. I figured I'd pack up some of the salvageable things. I got a box and put three bottles of spice in it and then just started wandering around looking at the devastation and feeling like I was going to lose my mind. I had to leave and ended up in the street wandering past 15-20 foot high piles of the debris that was once people's lives as I tried to get to my husband's work place a few blocks away. I won't bore you with all the details, but what happened to my community -- and neighboring communities -- is mind boggling. My husband and I were Red Cross Disaster Action Team members and went to Louisiana a long time ago, but it was nothing like this. Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and say thank you. We are on a very long road to recovery and I guess it will be at least a year before things are "normal" again -- so in the meanwhile we are living the "new normal". Individual thank you notes are on the way and there are so many of them to write. To say thank you just doesn't say enough. You were truly life savers.
