Elaine, Hi! Yes Paul is coming home Friday as well. At Reagan airport around 8:30pm. Can't wait to see him! His birthday is on the 21st so we get to celebrate it again this year. He will be 26! My "baby"! He goes back to SD the day after Christmas. What about your's? What airport and time does he come in?
Elaine, I'm so sorry to hear your mom isn't well. But I am excited you're moving to Maryland! I can't wait to see you. I'll have to see where Glen Burnie is in relation to me. Is your whole family moving as well? If you haven't joined the MD mom's [ I haven't checked yet] I look forward to "seeing" you on there!
Elaine - we on the Essex group have been trying to find out the name of the sailor who died and an address where we can send sympathy cards, words of support...If you have that information to share, could you private message me the information?
Elaine... forgot to mention that if you're into crochet, have you joined Ravelry.com? It's like Facebook for 'yarn lovers' and it's free. More than just socializing, it has over 100,000 patterns, a place for you to inventory your yarn (then search for pattern based on your stash), and small groups for every topic under the sun. I highly recommend it! If you join, my user name is 'AuntK'; look for me! Hugs, k.
Craig gave that address to me. I think it is because of the unique language courses they take. Crazy busy and will try to verify today. Mahalo!!! And Happy belated Mothers Day :). Mine was terrific. Enjoying time with Sailor son!
Hi Elaine, I do work today very busy day for me..have to go to atacosa county court house hope my phone work there...I'm leaving in about an hour..wanna be on my way back by 11 am...hope you have a good morning. I'll check in later.
my email at home is
email@example.com you can email me anytime! have a lot of collie pix fromm my kids, we have 3 smoothies, a tri and 2 sables, all are champions, 2 females and a male.
we line breed and we will have an awesome litter this fall (waiting for Haylee to come into season now, should be anytime) and will be breeding her to our male that is just awesome. I own him, and will be syndicating him with 3 others soon so we can continue to show him as a special (a champion) next year at the nationals, and then hoping to get him in the top 10 collies for 2011 and then heading to Westminster and the Eucanuba in 2012. He has bred his first girlfriend a couple weeks ago, and that should be a great litter too. but anxious for my litter to get here.
Ok, I see that they are calling now. YAH! If one of them went, the other one did too (brother divisions). So for sure 324 and 323 went. On the 800 division going alone....I too found that strange. I still wonder if the 900 will go with them, but LTLY's hubby is in 900 division and he has told her several times (as have others) that 900 division is going on Sunday. So we shall see. This week in the 9/24 group, the 900 and 800 divisions went together on Monday. That doesn't mean it will happen next week though...
