I live in TX now and have for nearly 23 years.  Prior to that I lived in Williamsfield, OH and worked for the Pymatuning Valley School District there. My husband is from Youngstown and worked in Warren.  We moved to TX when he found a job after the steel industry went downhill in that area.  I still have many friends in OH.  You can email me if you would like mkstroup@juno.com. Perhaps we have some friends in common.  Wouldn't that be neat?  The nearest person to you on this board is Cathi who is in the Cleveland area and right now is on vacation in FL.  There are several in the middle of the state from Akron to Columbus and then some in Cincinnati area.  Hoping to hear from you.  Hugs MK

I am from NE Ohio too.  Was born and raised in Howland and left at age 21 to see the rest of the world.  Never would have dreamed that I would marry someone from Cinti and settle down in SW Ohio, but here I am.
 
Now my step daughter is seeing a boy whose father went to JFK high school, which is the local Catholic school where I am from.  The world is too small.

I didn't realize that is where you taught.  We used to spend time at a cabin there.  I loved it.  Of course it was a pretty nice cabin complete with beds, bathroom, and a kitchen.  No roughing it for this girl.

I didn't teach, I was cafeteria supervisor for seven years and then Clerk-Treasurer for six years. In both jobs, tho, I met lots of the people in the same positions in other schools. I went to Howland many times and knew the C-T there. I always wanted to rent a cabin in the park but never did since I lived there. When my daughter got married some of the family rented them and said they were great. Small world. I met a woman here in TX that worked with my aunt 50 years ago in a department store in OH. You never know. What fun playing remember when or remember that? The woman from OH and I had a great time remembering restaurants, etc. from the 40's and 50's. Hugs MK

Wow, it is nice to get to know people from the same area.  Even the ones that have had the good fortune to escape our cold weather!  scool
 
We are in the middle of a winter storm here as I type.  We got a couple inches of snow last night and it's been snowing lightly all day today.  Not enough to close school here, much to the dismay of my 9 year old DD though.  She woke this morning and said "do we have school?"  "aww, that's not fair!"  She likes school but since I've been diagnosed she loves time with me.  And I have to say I was a bit sad taking her today.  Snow days are so much fun.  We usually bake cookies and have hot cocoa.  I even did a little bit of shoveling this morning (which I'm sure my DH will not like).  He thinks I shouldn't do anything yet.  But I'm getting cabin fever sitting here!  I love the outdoors!
 
So we are in Wayne County which is just south of Medina, West of Stark, East of Richland and North of Holmes.   We live in a town best known for Jelly's and Jam's and the former Indiana U basketball coach.  If that tells you anything.  Usually only us natives know the latter fact.
 
On the reminiscence of old things Ohio, how many of you remember **** Goddard the weather man?  He is on TV right now and he is my favorite.  I've been watching and trusting his forecasts since I was a tiny girl.  He had a birthday last week (same day as my DH) but they didn't say how old he is.  Anyone have any idea?
 
Thanks so much for the welcome ladies!  It means the world to me to have found a place like this!  I'm sure you will hear much more from me in the coming weeks and months.  You may even have to shut me up from time to time!  yeah
 
Hugs,
 
Mia

**** Goddard has to be 100. Okay somewhere in his late 60's or early 70's.  He looked old when I was a little girl watching him.  I saw him last week when I was visiting my parents.  Whatever happened to the blond lady that was on NBC forever then went to Fox.  My brother was teasing me last week.  Asked me who someone was on the TV.  I was like.... duh... Michael Stanley.

Watch it Annette, remember that is my age range, am I nearly 100? ROTFL Goddard sounds familiar but I think that was a Cleveland Station and we usually watched Youngstown. Heck when I first lived in Williamsfield there was an old woman who did the news. I can't remember her name. But I bet she was near 80. Since I am so old my mind is going and I can't remember the talk show, oh hang in there it is coming, Phil Donohue was in Cleveland back then. I watched him occasionally. But that was probably before you were born Annette. Mia was a mere child. LOL. around 1962??? We lived there less than a year then, in my husband's aunt's home which she had divided into two apartments. He was in the Navy and we were not able to be with him, so we stayed there until he had orders to Great Lakes Naval Base and we moved to Kenosha, WI. From there we went to VA, WA, SC then back to WV and finally back to OH. All this happened between 62 and 67. Ah military life was fun.

I am not so familiar with Stark Co. That is near Akron, right? Medina I really don't know. Where is Ravenna? In that area? We have a board member without a computer right now who lives in Akron. A couple ladies live in Westerville and cupycake lives somewhere in that area but more central I think? Deb???? Anyhow, OH is our best represented state. Do you think that says something for the environment there? Hmmmm.

Oh my gosh... both of us have tried to write this man's FIRST name.  His full name is Richard but he goes by ****.  I was born in 63 and I do remember Phil D and Polka Varities every Sunday at noon.  We drive by the Ravenna arsenal on our way home to Mom and Dad's.  off of route 5.  Funny thing .. we never watched the Youngstown stations even though they were only 15 minutes away.  We always watched Cleveland news.  That was 45 minutes away.

Mia,

I am a Wayne countian too!!!!!!!!! I live just south of you right at the edge of Amish country in Triway country. You gave it away with the Jam's and Jellies comment. I have toured that facility (Smucker's)  several times.

In March I will be a 20 year survivor, having been diagnosed in 1988 at the age of 33. I also had a recurrence 2 years after the initial DX.  I actually had my mastectomy done on my oldest daughters 13th birthday.  I also have another daughter that was around 7 at that time too.  I thought that I would never see either of them graduate from high school, but I fooled myself and was able to be at both of their graduations and weddings. I am now a grandmother of 3.

Welcome to this wonderful site. You will find that the gals here are always willing to let you cry on their shoulders or ask for any kind of advice. I have been a part of this group since 2000 and it has been such a joy getting to know these ladies. We have gatherings occasionaly which are worth the time to attend. 

You think **** Goddard is old, well...........how old would Wilma Smith be right now????? It seems like she has been around forever too.

Welcoming hugs,
Debbie from Titan territory

Debbie,
 
This is awesome, I'm on the site for less than 2 days and I found someone SO close to home!!!  How wonderful is that?!  I'm excited also because tonight I was to go to my first support meeting at Wooster Hospital but with our bad weather couldn't attempt the drive.  Even though it's only about 11 miles for me I couldn't take the chance on the roads.  So it is nice to have this place and you!  Wow!  Amazing!  God works wonders for us doesn't he?!
 
I love hearing from women who have so many years of survival.  I met a woman through my church who is a 25+ year survivor.  I would have never known it had I not made my BC public at church.  She called me and offered me great support the first week home.  It really is just what us "newbies" need to hear.  I have to keep reminding myself that this IS NOT going to rob me of all the remaining joys of raising my children.  I WILL watch them graduate high school and college.  I WILL watch them get married!!!  And I WILL enjoy time with my grandchildren someday!!!
 
Thank you for your inspiration!  This is just what I needed!!!
 
Now back to the Ohio relived.  I had to really wonder what was going on in this thread when Mr. Goddard's name was *'d out.  Then I got it.  Duh, slow moment.  Anyhow, I know Wilma is getting up there in age too.  But to me she always looks the same.  But I remember her being on TV since sometime in my youth.  But not as far back as Goddard.  And did someone mention an older woman who was on the news?  I'm thinking Dorothy Fuldheim from Cleveland.  Remember her, the gutsy older woman with red hair who got all the great interviews.  I think she spoke to the Beatles and Kissinger among what I remember.  I think she did a lot of political events. 
 
Now here's another one for the Ohioans.  Remember Captain Penny?  Mr. Jingaling?  I loved Polka Varieties on Sunday morning.  What about Hoolihan and Big Chuck?
 
Thanks for all the fun girls! 
And thanks Debbie for the big welcome!
Even though you are a TITAN!
 
The Red Rider,
 
Mia

YESSSS it was Dorothy Fulheim. She was a chuckle. I do remember Captain Penny and Mr. Jingaling. My kids watched those. Don't remember Hoolihan and Big Chuck.

Anyhow, although I lived in very NE OH for years after married, I grew up across the OH River from Steubenville in the WV panhandle. I went through school years in Weirton. So that is not so far from you either, just in a different direction. I thought I would mention that because our team was also the Red Riders and were usually very good in football. LOL

Deb and Mia, I hope you can meet sometime soon. That would really be neat. Remember we talked about having a get together up in your neck of the woods about a year and a half ago. I looked up places to say on the internet. Beautiful country.

Hugs MK

Wilma.. that is one that I could not remember.  I also remember 5:00 on Friday listening to Cleveland Rocks,  Born to Run, and one more song on WMMS.

Mia,

I am so glad that I could be of some inspiration to you. And yes, it is so amazing how the Lord works in mysterious ways. I have said here many times that I wish I would have had this site to come to when I was going thru my BC 20 years ago. I actually was very lucky and had alot of friends and family and a very supportive husband that was my rock to stand by me.

Hopefully someday we will get a chance to meet. Wooster would be a nice meeting place for us. I work part-time so we would have to choose a day that I have off. On one of those days that I don't have to work I am so lucky to be able to babysit for my dear little 1 and 1/2 year old granddaughter.

I have enjoyed reading your posts, you have a nice way with words. You will find that most of my posts here are short and to the point. I am really not very good at lengthy ones.

Hugs,
Deb

Deb,
 
Thank you for the compliment on my writing.  But I have to say it's not quite like my way of talking.  It's only similar in the way that it's WORDY!  I do have the gift for gab!! yeah
 
As for meeting sometime, that would be great!  And Wooster would be a great in-between place for both of us.  I'm not currently working outside the house, so I'm available most any time.  I had hopes of returning to school this year but the BC sidelined that for now.  I just need to know what my plan of attack will be and then maybe I will take some online courses.  That would be perfect for me, stay at home AND earn my degree all while still being ONLINE!!! tongue
 
Just let me know when you have some time and we can plan for lunch or something.  I'm SO happy to have found you.  I have one gal here in town that has been dealing with BC for 4 years.  We were never close but had mutual friends.  I called her tonight and she is so upbeat.  Yet she's had met. of the bone twice.  One time they got it with rad. and chemo.  And now it's back in new places.  She is still so inspiring with her attitude.  I have to say meeting or talking to women who've gone through this is making it so much more bearable.  I don't know if my own attitude would have withstood this alone.  Like I said in the rollcall, I have great support but if you don't have your own positive attitude it's a very tough battle.
 
So thanks to you Deb and all the women on here who have given me courage, strength and support!!!!
 
Hugs to you all!!!
 
 
Mia

Mia,

Are you going to the big basketball game Saturday night? My daughter and her family are going. I guess we will just listen to it on the radio. I am sure that those Red Riders will beat our b*#@%'s anyhow. Tee Hee

Above in your post, you mentioned Big Chuck and Hoolihan, my husband loved them and occasionally I catch him watching Big Chuck and I guess it is Little John now. Don't know what happened to Hoolihan????

I guess that we might be in for some more snow tonight. GEEZ.......when will it ever end? It might be sooner than we think, I noticed today when my daughter was leaving that I had some crocus's (sp?) coming up. AHHHHHHHHHHHH, what a great site!

Hugs,
Deb

Hi Deb,
 
No, we won't be going to the game.  And I feel really bad for admitting this but I'm having to guess from what you wrote that we are playing you?  I'm really not up on basketball of any level.  At 5'1" it has never made sense to me!  (tee hee)
 
I've been busy today and missed the news so I didn't know we are expecting more snow!  In the words of Charlie Brown.....ARGH!!!!!  Enough already!  I am SO ready for spring.  I planted a few crocus' last fall but haven't seen any topping out of the ground yet.  But then again I've got an Oak tree out front that all the local squirrels love.  And I've heard that they will eat flower bulbs if they find them when they are digging around for the nuts they've hidden.  So all my hard work last fall may have been in vain.  I love the spring flowers the most and planted crocus, daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and lilys.  Bending over to plant those boogers was a pain in the back, I better get something to enjoy out my front window besides those squirrels doing a happy dance in my yard!
 
Hopefully we won't get much snow.  But then again the DH  would love another opportunity to use his snow thrower.  He's only gotten to use it once.
 
Big warm hug,
 
 
Mia

Mia,

So glad that your DH didn't get a chance to use his snow thrower last night. (-: The snow seemed to go just south of us.......yippee!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Spent the morning in Amish country. Looked like everyone was out enjoying the sunshine scool , even if it was only 40 degrees. yeah

Hugs,
Deb
