 I do check the board regularly. I have been busy with life.  Have a new grand baby due anyday. but what really inspired me to pop in was that we just got back from vacation and it really made me miss you.  We drove through Ohio, New Hampshire, New York, Boston, Maine, Rhode Island, PA, Connecticut, and New Jersey.  I think that is it, but each state that we passed through I thought of my Breast Friends that lived there.  Candy, Cathi, Libby, Deb, Annette, Ellen, Luci (a former New Yorker), Peg, and Vicky, and I can't forget Joyce who I thought of when going through the PA tunnels!  LOL  If I missed anyone's names, you will have to forgive me, I can always blame it on Chemo brain.  But I hope you felt some bit of a hug last week and I passed through your area.  Hope everyone is doing well,
Love you all

Good to hear from you, Sara. Sounds like you had quite a trip. Glad you are home again safe and sound. Congratulations on the pending birth of you grandchild. They are so special. We are hoping to go visit ours in November if the weather is cooperative. Hugs, Lauri

Uggggggggh, Please those tunnels. I just read your post and got the chills thinking about them. How did you like the 18 wheeler tango. I thought for a while there I had died and gone to truck heaven. Geez I had no idea there were that many trucks in the whole country. An accident on that one part of the turnpike gives new meaning to the term truck stop. Its so good to hear from you again. I had lots of dragon flies this year and thought of you every time I saw one. How is your son? Hope all is well and please let us know when the stork has been to pay your family a call. Still laugh when I think of climbing into your dh's car. What a wonderful tour guide. Even if that isn't what he had in mind. LOL We wondered up the coast one year in the fall and it is without a doubt the most wonderful time of year to do so. All the kids are back in school and Bar Harbor is so empty and beautiful. They complain about all the moose. Well I have to tell you poor Vic wanted to see one. Never spotted one. We went to The Famous catalog store you know the one with double initials and then a bean. We walked in and there was a moose....sadly it was stuffed but I told dh at least you can say you went to maine and saw a moose. LOL Love hearing from you. Love, Joyce

It is so nice to see you post.  I wondered what that tug on my heart was!!!!  Thanks for the hug.  Congratulations on your soon-to-be-born grandchild.  They are so precious.

We have missed you and your wisdom and hope to see your more often, but life is busy and you sound good.

It was so nice reading your post.   I would love to tour the New England states.  As a matter of fact we had talked about going this fall, however, I don't know if it is going to work out for us.  I bet it was beautiful up north. 

Do you have that new little grandbaby yet?   We had our 4th grandchild in June, how special they are!

You take care, and please stay in touch.
