I keep my eyes open for likely open spaces whenever I'm out there.
(I still worry every year there won't be an available one!)

I don't even want to think of that!!!!

I am so frustrated and very hurt! That cake I just made I did not get paid for. This woman is supposed to be a friend and yet I am never invited to birthday events for her, her daughter or our mutual friend. I have known them all for over 10 years now. The only time I get a call is if she needs something. The last 3 cakes I have made for her, 2 have not been paid for and the other only partially paid for. This is part of my income I cannot afford to give these cakes away. I know if I say anything she will somehow come up with a reason why I am the one who is wrong. I know she helped me out when I needed it and really appreciate it, but how long do I “owe” her for that?

Hope you have fun and that your mom is feeling better!!!

She not only bats them around, she throws them, too, so they could be almost anywhere. Then of course, I don't know how many my brother has squashed. He has only confessed to squashing Wilson, but I have my suspicions.

So she likes to stash them all over for easy access!!!!

Aww, Star, I'm so sorry. It doesn't sound like she is to good of a friend any more if she keeps holding things over your head.

All the best to you all,

Hi and welcome to the Countdown! Congrats on the new job!

Of course, I'm more than glad that she is still with us. To be honest, it was real difficult not being there for such an important day. She lives in Sault Ste. Marie with the rest of my family... but I think I will have to head back for her 100th birthday next year.

99 years. What an accomplishment. In commemoration, here's a photo of my grandmother 28 years ago at my camp (cottage). She must have been 71. I was a mere few months old and my brother was 4! I'm so lucky to still have her around.

Happy Birthday to your grandmother!
