Hi all...hope everyone has had a good summer!

I'm finally back online after being without internet for several months! Who'd have thought you couldn't get internet service in this day & time????

It's been a rough few months for us, we got everything moved and were in the process of getting somewhat settled when my best friend of 25 years had a heart attack @49. She was without oxygen for 6 minutes so it left her brain dead, her family opted to let her go, she passed away 2 weeks after being admitted. We lost my father-in-law a couple of weeks ago, he had been in & out of hospital several times lately.

I've got some major catching up to do, gotta scan old posts and see what kind of cool creations everyone has been doing over the summer!

Glad to be back, I've missed my "other" family!

Welcome back. So sorry about your friend.
What a shock that must have been.

Dollydee glad to hear from yo! What a sad & busy summer you had. Hope you are getting settled in & doing OK. So hard to lose your best friend, almost like family, sometimes closer as you tell each other everything & get through life's problems together. Are you in a rural area that you had trouble getting Internet? In the city they can't hound you enough!! Jan

Welcome back! We have certainly missed you this past summer! Glad that you got moved in, but so sorry that you've had so much sadness to handle as well. Can't wait to see what you've been up to.

Yep, we are in a rural area about 30 miles south of Memphis. Sad thing is, we are in DeSoto county, which is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, but AT&T is hit & miss out here. A mile up the road you can get it but they haven't installed fiberoptic cable here yet...been very frustrating to say the least! But I love being back out here where I grew up. 5 acre plot, lots of peace & quiet!

With everything going on, I haven't had much time to do garden junkin..picked up a few things at yard sales. Been into couponing, building a stockpile..LOL
