    I have to ask your patience if I am not present on the thread as much as I'd like to be ... or a little slow answering PMs.
    My aunt, a brilliant professional woman and the family matriarch aged 81 had trouble breathing. Tests were run and she has masses in her lungs and liver. She is not a smoker. As awful as that is, there is an additional problem. She is a hoarder who has filled her duplex to the brim as well as a friend's apartment and several storage facilities. To round things out, she has 16 sick old cats. Major problems figuring out what to do. I am extremely allergic to cats and cannot run into New York City to feed them and clean litter boxes every day so something has to be done. My sisters are dealing with medical decisions and I'm not sure what my aunt will do. This is so sad and such a huge mess.

    Count me in for the Oct exchange. I'm not much on Halloween. We live in a rural area with a very long driveway. I haven't had trick or treaters, here for over 15 years! I don't have any religious barriers or tragic memories holding me back, I guess once the kids left home I just lost interest.

    k-- call ny spca and have them go rescue the cats. they will probably not press charges due to her current medical problems. there's no reason for the cats to suffer. i wish your aunt and your family the best. prayers for all of you!

    will do halloween or not, as you wish. love halloween but get no trick or treaters. this year, however, i am going t or t with olivia! she will be a dalmation. ( in a side note while she was trying on her costume the family female beagle tried to "h..." her. sounds awful, but was really pretty funny. sure made olivia laugh! 8-)

    Krystyna, I am so sorry about your Aunt. Before I retired and was working for Local Gov, I was for a short stint office manager for local Shelter. The local shelter should pick up the cats and get the ones they can healthy as possible and put them up for adoption. We used to Foster Cats that were either Preggers or Sick until they were ready to adopt, and I was lucky if one of the kids did not want to adopt.

    We will be praying for your Aunt, and for your family to help them deal with all the issues involved!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Thank you everyone for your prayers and wishes about my aunt. She is such a big hearted lady. Sad to say, she has stage four lung cancer which has spread to her liver. I can't help but wonder if all the dander and hair and litter dust had something to do with it. All the cats came from a pet store around the corner that takes in cats and places them in FOSTER care. My aunt got too attached to each one and wouldn't give them up. *sigh*
    Just to round out the craziness and stress, I am trying to get inventory together for my first craft fair next Saturday. I don't even have a booth set up! Eeeek! What was I thinking???

    Krystyna, its wasn't the cat it was just like it is for everyone else, a mystery as to why some of us stay healthy and no issues and others fall apart. I had a liver transplant on april 26th this year, it simply.. failed. My kidneys have failed too waiting for one of those. Healthy as a horse all the time and cats and dust can cause breathing issues if the dander is too extreme but it sounds like it was something much worse. I am sorry for the pain she has to go through. I will also offer up prayers for your Aunt and for all of you.. its often as hard or harder on those who care for us. I know it was for my family.

    I am staring at my pumpkins fabric right now.. who would have thought there were so many of them? I have seven of just pumpkins. yipes. Thank you little sister who gifted me with her fabrics. She apparently loved pumpkins. Now to convince her she needs batiks lol

    Sorry to hear about your Aunt Krystyna. I do not llike remembering about the towers falling in NYC. My daughter was in Boston and was suppose to fly on one of the planes that went into the tower. I heard about her buying a $700 dollar ticket and called my niece up to have her husband (A united Airline Pilot) to comp her a ticket. He did but couldn't get the ticket to her until after 9 a.m so she would not be able to take the earlier flight. Her daddy was dying of cancer and wanted to see her one last time. she had already spent the month of August with him and so when all this happened it hit her so hard with survivors guilt. I know several people here in CA who lost loved ones in the towers and I sometimes feel guilty that my loved one didn't get on that plane but also blessed and thankful that she didn't.

    Oh this will be fun to see Lynnie. My daughter there in Melbourne last year said that it was very different. She said that about 30 families signed up and the kids only went to those houses. So it wasn't like here in America where the kids run from home to home. So I will wait anxiously to see what you make. I'll be back in Melbourne for the month of NOv. I wonder what my daughter will do for Thanksgiving as it is not celebrated there. HMMMMM?

    Wow such profound memories .. we are a united group here, it is apparent that nothing has escaped us no matter how far apart we all are. I am thankful for the support here that everyone shares. Its amazing.

    Ok to be completely an emotional void, I am waking up now two days in a row dreaming about my DQ. Night before, it was beautifully pinned all gorgeous and ready for quilting. .uh.. not finished yet so that was a good dream.. and this morning barely can open my eyes in bed because well, I had figured out the corner blocks of the quilt and they looked so pretty which I havent.. good reason I didnt want to get up. Now I sit at the table quickly using my meager internet speed of 11 mbps and hoping I can get all my posts in argh before its gone. Four more blocks and its done.. ok today is the due date in my head so here I go.. dun dun dun dun dunnn dun dun dun dun dun dun... its halloween I can sing if I want to.. oh wait early that starts in one more day sorry guys
