Praying for your co-worker and his family right now, Xmas. I was just reading an article last night on Patrick Swayze who had stage IV pancreatic cancer. He lived for two years after that diagnosis even though his doctors had given him only a few weeks to live. When asked how Patrick managed to outlive his prognosis for so long, his wife said that he "refused to accept limitations. Cancer wasn't going to tell him how to live his life." She also said they had lots of mini-miracles, like responding well to a clinical trial and experimental chemotherapy. She also said that when that stopped working, he had success with other chemos, and when other problems presented themselves, they seemed to be a way to fix them. Then she said, "Or maybe it was that so many people were praying for him. It just seemed like angels were watching over us." Your friend is so young to have to deal with this, but then, cancer is no respecter of persons!


This is such a great post, Seawaters. A positive attitude I believe is so important......The people who really deserve Cancer are not the ones who get it, it seems.

I can relate! I used to be up on things but over the past 5 years, I find myself getting burned out on and falling behind all the latest gadgets, gizmos and such. Let's put it to you this way, my son has a smart phone; he calls mine a dumb phone... That's because my phone is a flip style phone. lol

Thanks, Snowflake. I am looking forward to seeing your list. When we get back home, i will compare/contrast it with mine and let you know of any differences. Just before we left home, I received the Claymation DVD with three shows: the Christmas one, the Easter one, and the Halloween one. Have you seen those? They always make me laugh out loud!

I wonder if I'm able to attach a Word doc.? Anybody know? If not, I'll just copy & paste.

I will post a list later, when I can get onto my desktop

P.S. Harlowe is sending some hugs & kisses back!! Xo

You're welcome

I'll appreciate hearing any differences. We may remind each other of movies we really liked but never bought, or suggest new movies to see!

I don't think I've seen the Claymation DVD...is that what it's called?
Now I'm curious!!

Green shrimp refers to a breed of Gulf shrimp. It is larger than Calabash and smaller than jumbo and has a greenish line down it's back. (Before being cooked, that line is removed.). At Lineberger's, it is fried without the tail (and head, too) and is so, so tasty. Lineberger's food is out of this world. They have a FB page, and you can also find out info online. I used to work there as a cashier when I was a freshman at Gaston College.

I will be back on MMC tomorrow morning. I am going to take a nap, and then everyone will be back home soon after. I might drive around town tomorrow after I learn the alarm code so I can get back into the house! TTYT unless I have a chance to get on later tonight!

Since the school is in Bellville, I get to drive my golf cart to the games and drive right up to the field. That way I have a padded seat without having to carry a chair and set it up!

Better get back to it. I hope y'all have a great day!
You could always have a sign that says "Get your picture with the mayor in his golf cart."
