Hi, Cute.......thanks for stopping by.  It is so good to hear from you.  How are you doing, and how is your Texas family.  I think about you all of the time.  


I am doing well in CA, just impatiently waiting for things to loosen up a bit.  Wearing a face mask all of the time is kind of hard for me to get used to.  I am going to try my hand at making some this weekend, since I have so much fabric.


Simone--the wig shop owner is not able to come back for now but I talk to her just about every day.  She is doing well, and just trying to wait it out.  


Hello, Snappy; hope that you and your family are doing okay.  Hi, are you?  Hello to Rowan, Selah, Lurky, Bathina, Agnes, QAnu, Delaney and your little boy.  He is probably a big boy now.  Miss all of you very much.

Hello ladies: Or should I say girls?  My Mom always preferred the latter even when they were al in their 80's.    (just little antique girls)


I'm sorry for  the font size but  I can't seem to correct it   ....  my son usually finds a way t o help no matter the issue.but he's not here now.


Thanks for sharing all the news, both good and bad.  At least we can know what to pray for.   I would assume that t he KS ladies  are now posting somewhere else where they feel free to share much more.  I miss them too.and hope all is well.


I'm not feeling up to posting much anymore  ... usually just on Facebook to keep up with my extended family I don't see often.  Snappy and I are pretty much running neck to neck on our physical problems  but I don't stress out much about myself ... it's all part of the aging process and I tell myself it could b e worse.


My son's cancer has spread now to the lungs and  the doctors are still not certain how to treat him.  All I can do now is pray and leave the results in God's hands.  There are so many suffering today .... praying for  Snappy's  dear relative too.  I understand what a burden that  is for his Mom and the very concerned family members  ....     is the young man aware of all  that is going on?   Will certainly remember him in prayer.


Don't think any of us expected the virus to become this severe  ..... but am thankful for the income provided  to take care of our basic needs. Not  everyone is so fortunate.  It was a welcome surprise too that the car insurance company sent  a  small refund check.  I find it helpful to try to find something new everyday to be thankful for and it surely helps during the bad ones.


I will close now but wanted you all  to know that I'm  thinking about you and glad  you are taking care of yourselves in these trying times.



HiLo      With hugs and best wishes across the miles,

Hello dear friends. I just  never come here anymore, but today I did and thought I'd leave a message.

DD#2 is retiring on Friday. Yesterday they had a driveby retirement party for her at school. Most of her students' parents drove them by her with signs and honking horns and help out gifts for her. Flowers, plants, lovely hand made cards and signs and she got lots of gift cards from the staff. I am so thankful the Lord allowed me to live until she is in a good place financially, as far as we know in this world. She has been working out of home on line for a long time which made a sort of transition into being retired.

I've had insurance troubles which caused me to lose my cardiologist in March and even though I've been assigned a new one, I've never had any contact with him. So, I worked with the company, and got it changed back so I can see my familiar one again. It means a new PD doc who is a freeway's journey away, but looks friendly in his picture.


Thank you for praying for my grand nephew. Last I heard, he had begun to move parts of his body, his hips for instance and was able to speak a bit. Nobody can see him since all those places are locked up tight against Covid 19 and that is so sad for everyone.

His mother is my niece but isn't good about news and it isn't always understandable, but I considered that as being very good and hopeful.

The baby girls are all growing up so fast and I'm unable to see any of them. Star will be 3 on June 29th. Her baby sister is 6 months old, rolling all around, walking in her little walker, laughing, bald. Sunny will be 2 on July 3rd. She's got lots of beautiful hair and talks a lot. Got a darling video of her yesterday.

I may have to have an outpatient surgical procedure to bypass my bladder. I've had the last effective oral antibiotic that works, and that I can tolerate, but it is very dangerous and has probably caused damage by my muscles and even tendons. Lots of pain in the low back and my arms and shoulders, but it could be so much worse.


HiLo, oh so sorry to hear about your son's condition. I stopped to pray that the Lord will show the doctors how best to treat him. It has to be so very difficult for you.

I'm 86 now.

Hi to Issy, hang in there. We have quite an assortment of face masks. Nobody needs any makeup now which is good.

DD#1 has learned how to do rudimentary sewing to make her own and finds other people who are doing the same.

My DS has to continue to work. He's 66 now, but has no retirement income other than SS and his wife is taking care of Sunny full time while her mom works from home. Star's Daddy and Sunny's daddy are also working. I pray for their safety out in the public all the time.

Cute, we are all aging, and it seems to have happened so quickly, doesn't it? You must find being at home hard since you are so social.

Hi MsLomo. I imagine this pandemic has kept you from travelling for your work, so maybe you are thinking more in terms of retiring.

Hi to the KS ladies.

Hello from one of the "Antique Girls"! 

@Hilo, I love the name. Such a perfect description (or it WILL be in not that many years from now, lol). 


HiLo, I am so sorry to hear about your son. Extremely hard on you. So stressful. I am hopeful that the doctors will succeed in arresting the spread. I also hope that your son is not in pain. Prayers for you and for your son.


Snappy, glad to hear that DD#2 is retiring in a week. Is she relieved and happy? What a cute driveby retirement party for her. I hope that the two of you can go on a little drive every week to pick up those Panera sandwiches with turkey and avocado! She can now relax without having to worry about a short summer vacation with workers coming at the crack of dawn to do one thing or another! Both of you can stay in your PJs all day! Sorry to hear about your bladder issues. That antibiotic sounds scary, so hoping you can get off of it soon. Good work on getting your cardiologist back. 


The great-grands sound so darling. I think about your grand-nephew -- such good news that he has started moving again, albeit slow progress, but here's hoping for a gradual return of everything moving. What a nightmare for him and his family.


The years 2018 and 2019 were probably the most difficult of my life (so far!). It was only at the beginning of 2020 that I felt the sensation of emerging from a dream -- a rather bad one -- so, it was a relief to get through it. My DH's care continues to consume a lot of time, so my "other" work came to an end. I miss it, but whenever I think of picking it up again, I am forced to realize how unpredictable and random the demands on my schedule are.


DS is wonderful and has a serious GF. I like her a LOT!


I also hope the Sweet KS Ladies are doing fine. They seem like a dream, too. Were they really here? It's like a vapor. I imagine they are on that other site -- Delphi? -- where they can communicate more easily than here. I do miss their lively conversations, their recipes (including my fave, shortbread!), etc. I think I was so distracted and out-of-it that I may have been inattentive and missed a lot of the details (unfortunately). I wish they'd pop in and say hi if they get a minute. @LurkyLoo @Q-Anu @DeLaney @SelahG (what the heck ... I just quickly threw out some names! One of them might see this and respond!)


Has anyone seen @bathina?


Issy, how are you doing? How are 6'2" and your fashionista friends? I'm picturing Jimmy Durante, "Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are," as I ask if you know how Bistro Boy is doing!


I still look at Heidi Daus's fashions at HSN online, and I recently bought another of her "Luxe Be a Lady" jackets on her own website. It was discounted a lot, which is always a good thing!


The world is wild right now. Around here, we all wear masks and gloves at the grocery store, and we keep our distance. It's a strange time ...


I wish everyone the best. Heart Very nice to see your posts.
