Hi Linda, I got the check today (loved the card). Thanks. There was no problem (I made sure your stub was in the early bird drawing), I just wanted to make sure the calendar arrived. So you like it, eh? I'm glad. I wanted to produce a calendar that had more value to it than just the raffle ticket, one that people would like to hang on the wall and that had historical information and information about NSGW. BTW, the Cook Mansion (December) is just up the street from where I grew up. Yes, that's me with the boxer, Stewie, on my lap on the NSGW page. That was taken at Bear Lodge, an 80-acre mini resort getaway that one of our parlors owns in the redwoods. The one below it was at the Custom House in Monterey (I'm in the back, the right hand cowboy hat) during a formal dedication of the new historical marker. I've already started planning for the 2017 calendar; I think I'm going to go for places that the Native Sons have had a hand in saving and preserving: So far I can tally up 8 likely candidates and I'm sure I can come up with more. Thank you for supporting NSGW, I hope you win the grand prize.
Thank you so much, Linda!! I've done the same thing! I haven't been up to doing burfdae lols since Richard passed but will get back to them soonest. Hope you are doing better, my friend!! Much love, linder
I'm SO happy to hear that!! Isn't it weird that the older we get the longer it takes to heal and feel like our happy healthy selves?! I totally agree about winter. It can kiss my hot a$$. ;) We have been in the hot 28's for awhile now...it's super sweaty but I LOVE it!!! AND I love you too WOMAN!!! Give the herd sum hugz fer me!!
I am going to be much better soon...already less pain and fewer pain pills which is amazing in itself! Ya it's easy to get depressed with incisions and bandaging and discomfort but as soon as some relief comes we start to perk up,eh?! I love you too Pussycat and I hope you are happy and healthy!! :D
The beach?? A lake beach? Pacific Ocean is sooo close - 2 more long blocks from my pharmacy (that I get Rx's from way too much). But this beach toooo cold. How 'bout we go to a warmer clime? LOL j/k. I wanna know where the 'blank' is Spring. I'm done whining now - hardly ever do dat. Sending good weather to you, healing & happy hugs. xox
i'm really sorry you've had such a rough winter. i'm starting to get over a bad sinus infection(I waited a while before going to the doctor, hoping the symptoms would go away on their own) and i'm feeling weak so I can't even imagine how you feel. I hope everything goes uphill for you from now. *dusty gibs you hedbonks and molly gibs you a sweet little wet nose kiss on your forehead*
Oh, c'mon, that calendar was ugly as a mud fence. One picture... that disappeared as soon as you hung it up. I designed the 2016 calendar and it is full of pictures of historic buildings around the state with a little tid-bit about them and/or the builder or events etc. I've included a page of California "vitals" and some historical dates and a page about the Native Sons of the Golden West. Yes, the price is still $25 and you still get 366 (it's a leap year) chances to win $$$$ (not counting the early bird drawing). Make the check to NSGW Grand Parlor The address is the same, too. I'll set your calendar aside and fill out a stub for you right now.
Glad to hear that some time at the beach put you right. I'm sitting here assembling 2016 Lucky Calendars and I got to wondering if you would like one this year (they're no longer ugly). If so, we're holding a $150 early bird drawing on May 20th to kick off the 'new and improved' calendars.
Wish you could have seen Princess last night! She wanted in the tub and was being silly so I went and grabbed a toy for her to play with. It was that purple crab that arrived with my leeky wine glass....She leaped and cavorted, waving and batting it around. She told me to tell you thanks again!
Good to hear from you. Im on vacation this week so have more time to do nothing. I hope you will regain your strength but please dont push it. Do you still have your dogs. I hope you had help with them this awful winter. I am still working full time and collecting social security. I am trying to replace, fix, get what I need with the extra money. Really there is no such thing as extra money. It finds a place to go. Take care and keep me posted.
