    Right after you sent me the wonderful pkg with all the Mardi Gras beads from Haydel's bakery, I spent the week babysitting my grandbabies in Houston -- while I was there someone from Brother Martin's sent my son-in-law a king cake from Haydel's. I did manage to leave him a small taste -- finders, keepers.

    Hummmm ... I thinking of playing again. I think I could come up with some hand made goodies likes pincushions, mugrug, etc. if that would be things that secret pals would like those type of things. I got a day or two to ponder this over.

    I missed last month too, unable to get online (really it's better if you don't spill a glass of water on your netbook). But just sent my info off to Lori. Nice packages came in even if some are late. Am waiting for DH to come rolling in from a campout in Fla that I had to skip.

    Sent mine in. Been a rough week on the homefront. Monday at our yearly eye doctor appointment, the eye doctor was concerned with my 15 year old. He said his face was drooping on the left side. I did not see it. He then did some test having him stand with his eyes closed and he could not stand up right. He swayed like a tree in the wind. The could not march in place with his eyes closed. When the doctor did sould tests, Adam could not hear well on the left side. He asked me to go in his office and make an appointment with his doctor. We went the next day.

    My son had an acoustic neuorma on the auditory nerve running from his left ear to his brain. He has been having headaches for three months and an upset stomach. Never did I relate the two to having vertigo. Adam said he was dizzy when he gets up but he hears people talking about being off balance. I told him that is at 65 not 15. Please pray for my boy. We see the head and neck surgery unit on Thursday. I have been told our options are radiation (maybe) or surgry. The surgry is 12 hours long and he will be in the hospital for a week and it will take two months to recuperate. He will have no hearing in his left year. I do not want this for my son.

    Okay, enough about me. Just trying to come to grips with this.

    I'm in I sent my survey to Lori a few hours ago. Lori has had in the past a group list of who was in the swap, when they sent when they received. Is that feature still around Lori, or was it too much to do with everything else? If it is around how did we get to it, I don't remember?

    Prayers for every one on here that needs them.

    You have to go to COMMUNITY at top then GROUPS, but I just went there and Lori doesn't have one up for January but said she is going to have a February one.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I have a son who will be 17 soon and I worry all the time. You just never know do you? I will keep your son in my prayers and I hope that he will have a very speedy recovery!! Keep us posted. Hugs!

    The Community/Groups does not have a list like we used to. I haven't seen a list like that since the system changed over to the new format.

    Fay, go to COMMUNITY/GROUPS and find "January Secret Pal Swap" and click on it, then look 4 Group Discussions and underneath click on Group Activity Matrix you will see where Lori said she will be setting one up 4 February.

    Guess I'm blind. I when in there and looked at the older group discussions and I do not see the lists that shows who had mailed their packages and who had received packages like in the past. It used to be easy to find.
