Let the good times roll--Thunder has arrived!!!

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Marion, how are those scratches today?

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

They are sore, the swelling has gone down in my lip but the cuts are very tender and I have to be careful what I eat. We did try to catch her to take her to the vet but it ended up in total disaster!! Kim and I both ended up with more scratches and she is huddled in the laundry room. We have been told to leave her along and I should come in next week to get some type of tranquilizer to help.

Doing some research I found this is occur in cats that were injured or abused as a kitten and she was by her previous owners. Only after we see the vet will we know what happens next. In the meantime, we are trying to avoid being near her. This is tearing my heart out but I must deal with it.

Henderson, NC(Zone 7b)

Hi LK, Yes it has been awhile, but I have been around. Having to go to lot's of Doctors, (Ray & Me)
Working constantly in the yard. So many pretty blooms now. My yellow Iris are beautiful. Had a yard sale last week end and sold plants along with other things. Have been to my Daughters 3 days this week helping her paint. Grand Daughter is getting married 0n the 22. Goodness, most times when I come to the puter at night, I'm so tired that I only try to read just to keep up with what's going on.
Love to all. Tomorrow is Sunday, let's go to church!

Spooner, WI

I'd love to join!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Good morning ladies!
Welcome Ptilda!! I hope you make this an annual swap!

Yayyy.. Thunder made it!! And so did Cindy, Faye and Jax!!

Marilyn, I understand your predicament. We got to choose our swaps wisely, if not postage can get you! But, you have a very good reason not to turn this one down.
You and Thunder have wonderful sons that are giving their ALL for this great country. Thank you both!

Yes LK, I am sure some of us have already begun collecting for this year's swap, the minute they sent out their boxes last year!!!

Goodness Faye, a grandaughter getting married??? Didn't know you have GROWN grandchildren of the marrying age.
Hope the good Lord is taking care of you and Ray well.

Couldn't go to church today as I'm having problems with the back. Kel went by himself, and I'm sure he's having real peace at church!!

I sent a post last night....maybe I was so tired I forgot to hit the send button ????

when is the mailing date on this??? and is it a secret swap ?????

Henderson, NC(Zone 7b)

Jaye, I'm so sorry you have back problems. I am ok but ray is having a very hard time with his back and his right foot. Ray will have surgery on his foot Fri. They will fuse 5 bones together and cut some bone out. He will not be able to put any weight on that foot for at least 2 months and the healing time is about 1 yr. Doctors said that surgery was the only thing left to try. Ray was told that he could expect 50 to 75 % improvement but his foot would always hurt.
Jaye, what types of needle work do you do?
Hello and love to all.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Faye, so sorry hubby has to have surgery. Praying it goes well for him.
Sure hope everyone made it through all those storms?

Glenview, IL

I am here too!! Thanks Jaye for signing me up!

yep Liz is most excited.

Waiving the hello every one too.

This flag We spotted in Volterra, Italy!! It sure did bring a smile to us.

OMG/OMG how did I miss this thread, was just telling everyone on the Best/Worse and What did I learn today thread that I couldn't wait for it to be posted...

All but for finishing a project I'm doing for it I'm ready for shipping...always had problems finding RWB so what did I do, each and every trip to Buffalo these past months (4) I've picked up goodies...yikes, you wouldn't believe how excited I most favorite swap....

Doing the happy dance, lordy you'd almost think I won the lottery to see my name put on your list of participants..someone indeed has been listening to my rantings of the RWB....

thank you, thank you...

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Oh Betty this swap wouldn't be complete with out you!!!!!

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

Can I jump in too? Pretty pleasse???

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Hello ladies!!!
Thunder I can feel the pride in your posting. Another stripe for your son shows he has very commendable work ethics. We too can somewhat share that pride, especially the ones that contribute to that patriotic blocks for him.
This is a secret swap, and mailing will be the first week of June. So you have plenty of time to quilt me a RWB!!! Hehehehe..

Faye, I don't like any kind of surgeries, or be in hospitals. I can feel Ray's apprehensions over getting his foot worked on. Maybe the pain will lessen after he get it done. Will pray for fast healing for him.
As for needlework, I do crochet and cross stitch once upon a time!

Thanks for taking that pic, Judy! Nothing like being overseas and seeing our flag waving proudly!!

Betty, no way we can do this without you!!! Our cherished honorary citizen. Again, you'll be getting your buddy's name earlier to allow time for mailing.
