Melody
I just want to say a few serious words for a minute on here to everyone who posts here and who try to cheer others up and create a little bit of care for others. Can I just say a big pat on the back to you all, it's easy to criticise and complain, we can all do it. Some folk work very hard at trying not to do that, they come here sometimes with a little painted on smile if things have not been going so well for themselves but they manage to shake it off and be happy for themselves and others. I for one appreciate it very much and just want to say thank you to you all.
Catherine
That wis lovely Melody.....but if ye cannae pour the drinks an talk at the same time hen then next time get the drinks furst an then gies yer elaqwance awright pet, some of us are slightly perched here laugh.gif xxxxxxxxx

In the old Board I asked about visiting Scotland with one of my daughters. I received a lot of good information from my old pals and I remembered printing it but with this move to Georgia I have not been able to locate it among my papers. Could I ask your help again? We are thinking about coming for two weeks in May. I wish it could be longer but Janice cant get any more time off work.
buntyq
Melody, great to know you are up and running again. And Gemini thanks for a great visit. 68 degrees here on Sunday. Back to crisper weather, warm clothing and rosy cheeks after a workout taking down the Christmas lights. Suzy's young neighbor brought me a welcome angel as a housewarming gift, She is holding a pineapple, the symbol of hospitality. Here I am off wondering how that came about.
Marg
