I’m baaaaaaaaaaaack! (jk)
I have a hint from Ms. Patti that a winter reunion is in the discussion, so here’s a picture of me getting ready for a return visit to my childhood home. (This is a real Chicago blizzard picture from Feb 2, 2011, but alas, it is not moi.)
I live to see you guys again but seeing as how I can’t seem to pull the trigger on getting there, I beg your forbearance! But I want to come, always, and as a junior moderator here, I am getting this discussion up and running in case Mr. Wheet is drinking about it, I mean, thinking about it!
Hellooooo! Look at the pic of the day! Those are lego sets, and yes, I love legos! The Quik-E-Mart was given to Paul from Joe for his June bday, but after playing with it twice, he got too busy, so I built it. That led to me buying The Big Bang Theory that I am presently working on in my down time. Paul said we will take all the sets and make them a Christmas village and string it with lights in December.
We have been a little busy. Paul had two heart procedures (during the first, he had a small heart attack while they were putting the left stents in), 3 crises (once he stopped breathing for 15 seconds) as well as a post procedure complication that had the femoral site leaking. He is the poster child for good blood flow now and he looks and feels great! His high dose chemo (from years ago) had caused his artery walls to collapse. He is now, officially, bionic! Our family went to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure in June to celebrate everything!
So hiiiiiiiiii! Fondly, Janis
The GOOD news is I snail mailed Cheryl a Birthday card; the embarrassing news is, I thought her birthday was tomorrow! Cripes! No excuse, because I remembered her birthdays when she was teen. I blame that Feb 12 famous Lincoln B-day date with messing me up this year Happy Birthday Cheryl! Have a sparkling celebration!
Ludy! I am sooo sorry I dropped the ball on this!!!! Blame it on winter, or on my pity party that I have been so sick all week, but I missed your Birthday!!!!! Happiest Birthday to fave streeter, Ludy! I hope your year is filled with golfing fun on Thursdays 😉 outings with your sis Mary Guin and your many friends, and much travel!
Health & Happiness to you Always! Love, Janis
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 2015 (wow!) Any resolutions?
Check out this gorgeous photo of (from left to right) Patti’s cousin Sue, then Patti, and of course, Sue B enjoying drinks at 90 Mile Lounge in Key West! Clearly, all have kindly offered to be the designated drinker for the evening 😉 Keep the pictures coming, guys! I would love to see some with the whole group, too, so Richard and Birgit, get in there for a selfie!!! Update! You asked for it, you got it! Scroll down and see Richard in the middle of those beauties, and there’s a couple more pictures of Birgit now, too! These kids have been out and about so much I can barely keep up with this post! Looks like the Aquarium, the Island Dog Bar…wherever they are, this truly looks like Paradise!!!
Happy Birthday to my big brother Mike on Monday June 30! May you have a wonderful year! And on Sunday, June 29th, Chris and Mike celebrate 40 years of marriage! Congratulations to both of you! We look forward to your 50th! Cheers!
Wow! Sue’s Granddaughter is here! Sue’s talented daughter, Mia, sent these pics this A.M. of Sue and Annelies Teresa, proud new parents Josh & Heidi with Annelies, and one picture of the star hereself! Sue said it first, and I have to agree with her: Is Annelies a Benker, or what????!
