  • Hey Patsy,
    I think you are being very generous calling "Woman of God" okay. Still have not gotten hold of "Never-Never". Had some further medical developments. Have to go for a test which is supposed to show if my Cancer has spread. If it has I will need a new aggresive treatment program. Now I have 8 Doctors I see regularly and three I see on occasion.
  • Hi Warren I have said a prayer for you.. Angels around you. I hope nothing has spread & you will Be okay!! Been in NJ o few days now, spending Time with friends. Had fun shopping, Dining out & went to paint & wine class. I skipped on the wine because I don't Drink, but the painting class was fun. We painted a peacock feather on Canvas. It came out pretty good I guess. IMG_0365
  • My youngest daughter will get this one Because the one I did 2 yrs ago went To my eldest daughter. My girls were arguing Over the first one I did like it was a Van Gogh or something. So the eldest Daughter won that round, so now the youngest Gets this one. The next one I do, I will keep for myself, Each class does a different painting. You don't know what it is that you're going To paint until you get there. We had a lot Of fun. Hope you have a great weekend. Stay well. Richard hope you're enjoying The weather & all the sports you Watch. Hope you're well. :)
  • The above is the first painting class I went to 2 yrs. ago. This is the painting the girls Argued about. Lol
  • Hello all, Patsy thank you for the prayers. I have not heard about the results of my bone scan test yet. They used to say no news is good news. I can only hope that is true. The only painting I have been brave enough to tackle has been "Paint by Numbers":. These are not kids versions but complex adult versions. My oldest son has sent me some. I find "people" to be the biggest challenge.  
  • HI WARREN..

    YES, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!!!

    IT WILL ALL WORK OUT..


    SEND MY LOVE TO CAROL & STAY WELL.

    :)

  • Goat - get well & pronto, too!  It is now Spring Time and may there be many more good Spring times for you & yours.


    I hope everyone will go outdoors to watch baseball & softball. Lots of great college basketball action on tv with the NCAA Final Four as well. That's the true beauty of Spring - it means renewal for everyone and gives us much incentive to be enjoying ourselves.

    Take good care, Folks!


  • Oh by the way,  great art work above.   :)

    I must admit that most of my sport watching is on the boob tube. Right now I am watching Roger Federer And Raffa Nadal fight for the Miami Open men's Tennis championship.  Roger has made a terrific comeback since his six months off due to injury. Raffa is looking good also. I had started to watch the Yanks VS Tampa Bay but the Rays are running away with this one. They claim a full house but have over half the upstairs seats covered with tarps.

    I will know  nothing about my recent test results until the 21 when I see my new Urologist. It stinks that he leaves me hanging this long and I will let him know it when I see him. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
  • good morning, friends.

    Richard, the artwork was fun to do. :)

    they are nice, but most important my daughters love them!!

  • hello All,

    We have had a very dry warm spring so far but today was considerably cool. One of the biggest fears down here is when it is dry and gets hot we have the worry of brush fires. Had one at an intersection of two major highways yesterday and it raked havoc on traffic. No one was injured or killed and that is the good news. With what is going on in Washington these days reminds me of a time years ago  We were visiting someone in a mental institution on long Island. N incident took place and one of the inmates asked out LOUD. "Who is running this place? The inmates or the people who work here".
  • good morning, friends hope everyone is well.. weather has been beautiful last few days here!! warren, I'm going to library to put my name on list for his new book 'LITTLE BLACK BOOK" trying to keep up with all his new novels. everyone, have a great day!!! :)
  • good morning, friends


    just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter!

    enjoy...

    :)

  • A VERY happy Easter to all. Went to Church last night (Maundy Thursday service). It was very moving and it brought home the true meaning of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
    I got myself volunteered to run the Memorial Day remembrance service here at our Senior Independent living facility. It will work out fine. Having a little trouble with my insurance company over coverage for a test to see if my Cancer has spread to my bones. I will try my best to win on appeal.

    "Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my savior, waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord: Up from the grave he arose, with a Mighty fortress o'er his foes. He arose a victor from the dark domain and he lives forever with his saints to reign. He Arose! He Arose! Hallelujah Christ arose." That is an Easter hymn that I learned in the Junior Choir of my Church 70 years ago. Never forgot it.  I think it tells the whole story of Easter. I sang it at a service I conducted at an Assisted Living Memory group. A lady there who could not even remember her name sang the whole thing with me, word for word. Music is Amazing. Happy Easter all and I hope our Jewish friends are having a successful Passover. I am not familiar with Muslim Holidays but I wish you all the best.
  • beautiful, Warren.

    I love your Easter hymn.

    I hope it all works out with your ins. coverage.

    I hope everyone had a great Easter.

    we spent it in NJ with some relatives.

    traffic was horrible coming home.. an hour ride took us over

    3 hrs. it being Easter & Passover, everyone was travelling.

    that said, we had a great day!!


    hope everyone has a nice day!!

    :)

  • Hi, Carol has been ill with her IBS for several days now. On top of that her migraines have been acting up. Poor girl can hardly eat anything without it giving her problems. Tomorrow is my big day. Appointment with new Urologist to decide on a treatment program for my Prostate Cancer recurrence. Add to that we had a leak in the drainage system for the A.C and they are trying to repair it today. The fun never ends.

    I think we discussed this on another thread a long while ago but don't remember for sure:


    Brainerd loved Brooklyn and took many old photos which are readily available online.  I would have posted a link but (sad to say) when I searched there was objectionable content among the photos {the content was from another party}.  Here is one really good example of his work:





    The weather here in St Paul changes every day - some times it is war, others it is wintry!  Oh well, Summer will be here soon enough.


    Everyone please Keep Smiling!
