    Susan, I just read the article and it is so sweet. I am so happy for you and Meadow. I do have a question though, it says the dog will stay with you for 8 to 10 years...do they take him back? I think that would be over my dead body! My last dogs lived 16 years and they died in my arms. I hope Meadow stays with his family (yours) all of his life!

    Prayers are for all of you here on the board. I hope the injured and ill are having a nice day and I pray you are all safe from the storm.

    I just finished a wall hanging (25"x35 1/2"). The pattern was in a 2007 McCall's Quilting Magazine. Designed by Carol Armstrong . It was so much fun to make this. My 94 yr old mother has claimed it so it will hang in her apt. when I go over on Monday. I am really thrilled with how it turned out and I just had to show you.

    At that point he will be retired and he will remain with me. I would not let him go anywhere. and I will get a new one when I retired him.

    If I had seen it first, "I" would have claimed it. It's great!!

    Krystyna please be cAreful and everyone else in storms path. It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature's temper as she always wins. Stay on side of caution. Only people (and pets) really matter

    I am going to open the sign up for Nov. With all the trouble we have had this month I am setting a limit of one secret pal per person this month. Any new person is going to be asked if they have read the rules.

    Is there going to be a new set of questions for this month or can we use the questions from last month?

    My prayers out for Krystyna - lost a house once and was no fun. Know she's strong and up to the task of rebuilding. Well, mail has run today and tomorrow is the last of October. Hope my package arrives so it'll make the month of October - otherwise it's October in November?

    If you're getting an angel it might be the first day or two of November.

    Again Ladies and Gents, I bring you news from the November doll quilt swap. Per Krysyna's DDIL Melissa, (JauntyMelissa)

    Good Morning Ladies, I know that I've been gone for a while and I'm sorry, I do miss the board dearly, BUT........ I am on this morning just to give y'all an update on my dear soon to be mother - in - law Krystyna. Even though our home was badly flooded and so was the rest of our community, we are all alive and well. There is no power, no gas, no water, no nothing and I am at my parents house in a village that has all of there own utilities and bring this update to you guys from here. We are all very thankful for everyone's prayers and well wishes, I know that yall love her as much as Blaze and I do. Cell service is spotty, if mostly non- existent in our community, and most of long island. I just wanted to bring you guys news of miss K, and let everyone know that she is safe. We hope everyone else on the Board who lives in the area effected by hurricane sandy is alive and well and just remember that we might of lost material objects, but we kept our lives and families, and we still have each other and that is what matters the most!!

    I want to add written acknowledgement of my prayers to all the others for Krystyna and family. I have been praying since I knew the storm was on the way but wanted to let her know.
