Hello everyone! I hope you're all doing well. I just got back from a trip to see family in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Living on the chilly Central Coast of California has gotten me used to cool temps and low humidity. The 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity reminded me why I left NJ! I have to say, though, that even after 36 years, I still miss lightning bugs, thunderstorms, good Chinese food, authentic pizza and sweet New Jersey corn (can you tell where my priorities lie??!)  I have a headache and some vertigo that I probably picked up on the plane, so I'm lying low and will spend the day finishing an editing job. Thank goodness for laptops--I can be a couch potato and still get some work done. 

How is everyone feeling?  Barb, I hope the pain has eased. I never had expanders but can imagine that they'd be uncomfortable at first. Uvrae, Scooter, Patti, Sadie, Nuzzy's Nana, Gail, and anyone I missed--sending good wishes your way.

Sadie, my sister and daughter both raved about the novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Apparently, it's the first book in a series. I'm always looking for a good read (or a listen--love my books on CD!), and I know you are, too. 

Love to all,

Rena

Rena,
 
Speaking of humidity, it seems to get worse each year. My bangs are always curled up to the point I resemble Mamie Eisenhower. LOL. For you younger folks, she was First Lady during my college years., the Nifty Fifties. Not.

LOL, Nuzzy! I remember Mamie (not to be confused with "I Remember Mama"). I, too, suffer from the flippies, and not just my bangs but my whole head! I looked about to take flight! It was cold and foggy here today and will be for most of the next three months. It will get very old very fast, but right now I'm enjoying the lack of heat and humidity. Stay cool!

Hi Scooter,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and staying cool.  We're having our first warm day today.  I am not used to the heat either.  Have fun when you can.

Hi Everybody,

Just dropping in for a quick hello.  I just got the results of serveral tests and everything came back clear.  Woo Hoo!  I will reach 6 yearts in July.  a

How are you all doing?

Warmly,
Sadie

Hey Sadie...

Great news...I'd give you dancing nanners, but I don't know how.  Pretend that you see them and pom poms too!  lol!!

It's a challenge, Jojo! No thunder and lightning either. But we have the ocean and sea otters and great Mexican food. It's definitely a tradeoff! How are you doing?  Rena

Rena,
I am doing FANTASTIC! Started my Chemo vacation last week - am taking Xeloda with no side effects so far. Doc says if all goes well could skip regular chemo for up to 6 months. Downside? Can't get my hands in dishwater, Aw Gee!
Got the kid graduated, was in best friend's wedding last weekend, baby boyo's wedding is the 10th and youngest daughter just announced her engagement. So busy and broke!
How are you????
