    My Package went out yesterday... I have been having computer problems and finally bought a new computer... My friend and her husband are coming over tomorrow( I am making homemade Pizza for them for dinner here ) and he is going to hook it up and put what I need On it and get it working for me... this is the reason I have not been posting much, never know when it will go through...Hugs and prayers for all in need...

    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
    well it could be me my zip adds up to 15

    Yesterday I received the most wonderful package from Gaijin/AKA Deborah. Everything was wrapped in beautiful blue tissue. She made me the cutest tool caddy that fits around a coffee mug. She made it on her mother's antique sewing machine while she was visiting her parents. She bought me beautiful lengths of fabric from Japan. They are so interesting lush and all I want to do is stroke them. My pups got 2 bags of treats. You will notice one is missing. Wonder how that happened? There are 4 marking pencils, measuring tape, quilting magazine, a book she read on the plane trip to the US, there are flower pins from and rose candy from japan and sugar free mints. I love the mini lights she got for my gazebo. They have brown wiring. The lights in the states are always white. My gazebo is tobacco colored and no one will see the wiring, only the lights.
    Her note was especially appreciated.
    Thank you so much Deborah/gaijin,
    Faye/Fayzer

    SP your pkg is going out tomorrow. Finished my MIL pkg it should have been there today, but of course it was late.
    Today was my Bday so DH took me to dinner and Gkids were by so it was a busy afternoon. We will be celebrating my Bday and Mothers Day with a big get together with my parents, DD and her family, Sis and all her family (9), my DB, Aunt & Uncle, DD Grandparents in law, all together about 25 or more. So have to stop sewing and of course start cleaning! Everyone have a wonderful night! Nice pkgs already!

    Hi all! Well being I was out sick for two days at work I had lots to catch up at work and on the board. Needless to say I did make something special for my SP last nite and brought it to work to finish it off and send it off in the mail. Don't worry Lori, I'll pm you when its sent Wonderful pkgs so far all. Is it 5 o'clock yet? Somewhere I guess, I want to go home and rest some more but it always seems that when one is off for illness and come back to work your back to square one again trying to catch up....*sigh*

    Brought my "stuff" today with me, I am going to try to get it in the envelope and out today. One of the requested items was ordered and direct shipped to my partner. I hope it has arrived or will arrive soon. Ordered on the third, said 6-10 business days. No way to track. So soon as she gets this main pkg I will have to make sure the other arrived. She has not posted so I wonder if she reads.

    My pal should be getting her package any day now. It has a long way to travel. It is 54 where you live and it will rain Sat and Sunday. The name of your town paints vivid pictures in my mind. Your town is named after a magnificent animal.

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!

    Ow that is horrible!! So sorry to hear that, sometimes I hate doctors.

    As for the: Am I talking about you?

    Dear Secret Pal,
    After being flat on my back for the past week+ ... I hobbled out to the PO so that I could mail my package on time and it should be there about mid-week. Your zip code adds up to 15 but a number repeats. Well time for me to take some more pain med's and a bite to eat.

    Toodles,
