    I just love the packages everyone is getting. We have such caring and giving members on this board.

    Also, I just wanted to share a little of Jill's latest PM to me that I received this morning. GOD Bless each of you that is sharing with her. She is really having a difficult time dealing with the loss of her pets more so than the material things. Don't know if I mentioned it but she didn't have any insurance. Let's keep her in our prayers.

    I got several packages today...I went upstairs to an apt of a young man I have made friends. He made Tacos. I sat in a chair and opened gifts. With each one I cried and cried. I am speechless. what strangers have done for me is beyond any words. I came back home and called my brother to tell of my gifts. I cried all over again. One of my doctors says I am sufferring from Post Traumatic Stress. Thanks for all you do. Your friend Jill

    I received the best SP gift from Lori P. I have to say it arrived in the middle of a tough day. As I opened the package, I was so touched. The package is so thoughtful. I received dark chocolate (yum), Werthers, and Andes mints. I recieved great material in my favorite colors. There are great embrodiared hearts and I am going to incorporated one into a purse. The oatmeal cookie bars in a jar are in the oven now filling my home with a lovely aroma. This was a fantastic package.

    Ladies I just received a surprise phone call from Jill. When I sent my package to her, I included my phone number and told her if she ever needed to talk, just to call me. So far she has received 10 packages and just cannot imagine the outpouring of love she has received from the board. I told her she hadn't seen anything yet. She cried and was so humble and wanted me to thank everyone who had sent something. She is going to try to send out individual thank you notes even though I told her she could thank everyone on the board. You folks are just fabulous and have touched a hurting heart. Also, for those of you who haven't sent a package and are intending to, her apartment number is #110. I thank you.

    TooMany - it's tooooo cold for ice cream! If it's cold here in New York, it must be REALLY cold in Maine! Save it for the summertime bench and let's break out the nice hot lava cakes! Yum yum yum!

    Krystyna, it's never too cold for ice cream. You just have to limit how much you eat so your insides aren't as cold as your outsides. We had TCBY on Saturday - high temp was 32 degrees.

    Here's something to lighten your day ... and now you all know how fresh I really am!

    As you may know, my son is getting married on April 20th.

    I was talking to my oldest sister, Lillian, a couple of weeks ago and mentioned two distinctly separate events:
    a. Rod, my husband, was out with Blaze, my son, and his groom’s men ordering rental tuxedos
    b. I was depressed

    Big sister Lillian later spoke with the family matriarch, my aunt, Camille, who is very old and serverely ill.

    The "telephone game" went into full swing.

    It turned into me being depressed because Rod and Blaze are out renting tuxedos.

    Aunt Camille calls my other sister, Joan, who is a complete control freak. She tells her that I am depressed because the boys are out renting tuxedos so she wants to buy me a dress.

    Joan calls me to tell me she is taking me shopping and the dress is on Camille.

    I would rather have all my teeth pulled without Novocain than go shopping with Joan.

    Really.

    So … I told her I was making my own dress.

    Then I told her I was going to wear a sari.

    She responded by sending me a link to David’s Bridal mother’s dresses.

    So … I sent her this and told her I bought it. Complete with a crown.

    I didn’t but I’m not telling her that!

    I actually bought this one in light blue.

    Now I have something nice to wear to the crematorium at a later date.

    Told you I was fresh!

    Here is the tutorial for the great portable first aid kit. Only takes 15 minutes to make and you can find everything to fill it at the local dollar store.

    We only make homemade ice cream in the winter. We use snow and salt to freeze it. No one around here makes it in the summer, too many dairy bars serving soft serve ice cream in the summer.

    LOL

    K, You crack me up with your antics.

    I knew Blaze & Melissa was getting married this year, I just
    hadn't known a date had been set for the wedding.

    My congrats to them both.

    Lovely dress that you selected.

    Ladies, I just wish I had the nerve to get one of those empress dresses and show up in it! Actually, I do have the nerve ... Rod just wouldn't let me in the car with it on! I wish I had one of those HUGE dresses from "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" -- one with lights in it! I wanted to make a veil for Melissa with lights in it but ... well, she's no fun. I'm amazed she's putting on a dress at all.

    Ooooo! Lightbulb moment! I'll get some LED lights and put in in my dress for my dance with my son! I'm doing it! Off to shop online!
