    Took me forever to catch up! Dang job!! Here's a little story all about my SP:
    There once was a lady, all dressed in very bright Blue, Red and Green. She was quite popular around the courtyard. When she walked her pets, she was especially popular. How often do you see a brightly dressed lady walking that many pets. One was running, another hissing and a couple hopping. But the odd one, the one you don't usually see someone walking in public with, well it was the real crowd pleaser. As she was walking, she was throwing bits of licorice to the onlookers, cause she don't like it anyway. Would never think of throwing turtles. What a "Cool" site to see.
    I hope I didn't go too far with the hints.

    My SP's package will be going out tomorrow. I have to find one more sack at the house. I know I bought some stuff off of your list, but I can't find that dad blasted sack! Guess that is what I get for cleaning my truck out, if I hadn't done that over the weekend I would know right where to find it.

    love all the clues.
    I have been working on my packages.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    reeskylr,

    Is it me you are talking about? I went to visit my elderly parents in New York for two glorious weeks! My dad almost died right before my last visit in the fall. He is on dialysis and I got to go with him about six times and he looks so much better. I was able to mow yards and haul huge chunks of wood from a giant tree my mom had cut down! My dad had lost the use of his arm about 7 months ago from chopping wood (badly crushed disc) and was feeling pretty down. He was told by the doctor that he was too old for surgery and that he would never use his arm again. My mom helped him do exercises three times a day and he regained the full use of his arm! I'd like to give that doctor a piece of my mind! I don't mind that he was wrong with his diagnosis, it was that he spoke to my father so rudely and gave him zero compassion and no hope! But didn't forget to charge him 500 dollars!

    Maybe your mom should bill him. Her diagnosis was better than his. Good for them. So glad all is going good for them. It is horrible to see parents suffer.
    Hint: I know I've seen my SP on the board, but have not seen a recent post on this thread. Zip adds to 15. Her package has been split. She should receive one part soon. I am hoping to get the rest out by Friday. DH decided to work in the yard last night. I have a feeling I will be helping again tonight. I love yard work, but not when it interferes with my sewing. LOL

    I just sent out my SP package for May, and it went to the state that I was born in and lived in for 47 years. I was also blessed to be able to be a SP angel for April. That one went to a State that just had "Snow in May". Thanks Lori for all you do

    Well, for one thing, I just embroidered and sewed 40 veils with pouches and sachets for mother's day for my customers ... leaving little time to do anything else except visit the bathroom when necessary. BUT ... it will go tomorrow. I wanted to add something homemade ...
