My Apologies

Hello everyone, I apologise for my absence I have been very sick and was not able to
do very much at all . I won't bore you with all the details, I am well enough again now
and will catch up reading every one's posts as soon as I possibly can.
I was very disappointed that I missed out on a weekend in Gympie as well as Easter with my friend Ede in Brisbane over Easter. However there are many things that could have been worse so here I am again (until next time). Heaven forbid.







Wonderful what a little makeup can do!
















One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names with small American flags mounted on either side of it.

The seven year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, "Good morning Alex."

"Good morning Pastor," he replied, still focused on the plaque. "Pastor, what is this?" he asked.

The pastor said, "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."

Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.

Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, "Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45?

I am so glad that you are better Margaret. I have missed you. I loved the pictures and the funny joke.

Make sure you fly over to Phoenix and come have a BBQ with us. We can all go swimming. We have a lovely guest room.

Take care and hugs xx

Spewing my coffee all over my keyboard. I'm linking to that before and after pic of our fearless leader.

Margaret, glad to see you back at the keyboard. Being under the weather is no fun.

We have been overwhelmed with a variety of things in the past few weeks. All of which were posted on my blog.

Things are just about to get back to normal, whatever that is.

Friends from France will be visiting us beginning Monday. They will be with us for about two weeks. We are looking forward to it.

Btw, what service did they give their all? tee hee.

Hi Margaret ~~ Glad to hear you are feeling better and hope you continue to improve. Loved the joke about the memorial to those who died in service. Too many. But funny.
Do take care Margaret, Love, Merle.
