  1. I join you with my thoughts and prayers for your friend's granddaughter and those who died in the crash. I know nothing about minimal change disease. Is this something that can be handled long term with medicine and restriction of fluids?
  2. Once upon a time, I told a friend that I someday hoped to have a Colt's Christmas tree. That friend helped make my wish come true by sending me a strand of Colt's lights, a Colt's teddy bear, and a Colt's scarf (that I used as a tree skirt). While my photo doesn't do justice to my little tree and while I know that there are Colt's Christmas trees much more impressive than mine, I wanted to share it because that little tree doesn't just represent the Colts and Christmas to me. It also represents many of the great friendships I have made on these forums over the years. It represents all the times many of you have made me smile or given me kind words of support. So, I call it my Christmas tree. My thanks goes out to Gramz for helping make my dream come true.
  3. It must be all those warm, fuzzy Hallmark movies because I suddenly have a desire to add seeing the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center to my list. However, I would settle for Santa Claus, Indiana. Never been there either.
  4. Great! Does that mean you would join me in shopping for prom dresses this spring?
  5. Dear Joan Waylon, Your post brings make some great memories and I really enjoyed that clip of TubaGuy. Thank you!
  6. I'm adding a pair of these socks to my Christmas wish list. Just can't decide if I prefer the "Sure I'm Listening" or "Let Her Win" socks.
  7. I Love Lucy It doesn't matter how many times I've watched her wrap those chocolates or taste that Vitameatavegamin, she still makes me laugh. This is one of my other favorite clips where Lucy helps Ricky with his reading:
  8. Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all and the best of luck to anyone who ventures out on Black Friday.
  9. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve/Day quickly approaching, I thought it may be fun to have a Holiday Version of the Random Stuff Thread . . . a thread where you can post anything you wish to share regarding the upcoming holidays. It could be a funny or heart-warming story from your past. It could be a family tradition that you would like to share. It could be pictures of your decorations or Colt's Christmas tree. It could be that you are looking for gift suggestions for that "hard-to-buy-for" person on your list. It could be a video of a favorite song. It could be a holiday menu or favorite recipe. Or, it could be that you are a "bah humbug" and just want to vent. Whatever it may be, I invite you to share your random Holiday thoughts and will kick this thread off by sharing my Thanksgiving menu. I will be having turkey and all the trimmings at Cracker Barrel because I hate to cook. I realize that may sound lame; but if you ever tasted my cooking, you would be adding Cracker Barrel to the list of things to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. Afterwards, I will settle down with that big, fat newspaper and look at all the Black Friday ads to see which great deals I will miss because there is no way that I will get out in that shopping mess.
  10. My bucket lists contains trips to the east coast and Europe; but some fairy godmother is going to have to come along to make those dreams come true. There is one thing on my bucket list that wouldn't be costly, but I'm having a hard time getting it done. I wasn't able to attend the prom when I was in school. The only thing I regret about that is never having the fun of trying on the fancy dresses. So every year when prom time rolls around, I try to get a friend to go with me to the mall. I haven't had any problem finding a friend to accompany me. The problem is that I want a friend who will also try on dresses. But, no one is ever interested in looking ridiculous along with me.
  11. It's so great to see you posting again, my friend. I think of you often.
  12. I guess that ring is beautiful; but if it were mine, I would sell it because I would worry about losing it or having someone attack me to get it. It's like the advice I once gave to a friend who told me she was afraid to go to the mall after dark for fear of being robbed. This is a woman who always looks like she stepped out of a fashion magazine. I told her that she needed to go to the mall looking more like me . . . hair pulled back in a pony tail, no makeup, and wearing second-hand clothing from a garage sale because I would think that someone wanting to rob another would target the person who actually looked like they had something worth robbing.
  13. Thank you for your kind words and for watching the video. Since I've often thought that the hospitals in the very large, major cities are the most innovative/cutting edge; I was proud to see what IU Health was doing . . . even though I obviously have nothing whatsoever to do with it. I'm sorry to say that Sawyer has not been doing as well as my granddaughter. He was second on the list if the organs had not been compatible for my granddaughter. However, he did receive his liver transplant a few days later. One would think that my granddaughter would have had a rougher time given that she received a transplant of five organs. However, transplants such as hers have a higher success rate.
  14. Your post reminded of several years ago when many of thearea corn fields had "crazy top". Prior to that I had never heard of such a thing. It looked like this:
  15. Wow! I don't know which I envy more . . . the pool or the mango trees.
