I put a photo in my gallery of the Nandina in front of my house with its red berries - also a close-up of the berries in ice (we had a big ice storm about two weeks ago). Have you seen them in flower? They have a lovely spray of white flowers in the summer.

Hi Gail. Thanks for the birthday wishes, and the wine of course. I enjoyed it immensely, even if it is only 2pm! You can start drinking whatever time you like on your birthday!

Hi Gail,
Thank you so much for your hospitality during my short stay in Melbourne. The timing sucked, but it was a pleasure to meet you and it is an absolute honour to know you. Cedric and I have arrived home safely, to you've no idea what.!! Anyway, sincere thanks to you and I very much look forward to the next visit.

Oh Gail you are so right we are in the same boat paddling for all we are worth to make sense of it all. I made a push to try and put my life back on track today Bill and I had a game of golf my first since moving back up here. We will hang in there together hugs and kisses Amelia

What a lovely photo of your Mum and Dad and Danny Boy brought me to tears.

Not to worry Gail that song always brings me to tears. I don't know if I've mentioned that we have our place on the market had some people viewed it yesterday and if the council let them do what they have planned we will have a buyer so I have been potting some of my favorite plants to take with me when we find a new home. Fingers crossed LOL.

Gail, I was so sorry to learn of your recent loss. May you find some comfort in the thought that we are all thinking of you at this time x

GAil, Thank you. I'm glad it's over and extremely glad about the results. My brother is going really well and has become a great advocate of colonoscopies. Without his, who knows what may have happened in 12 months as he had no symptoms at all. Thank goodness he received a testing kit and a reminder letter from the health dept.

That is a lovely photo of your parents. I know I'm late in sending my condolences but I hope your lovely memories of your mum gives you strength in this sad time of grieving.

I lost my dad 21 years ago (I was pregnant with #1 at the time) and even today wish he was here to share things More...

Sometimes, it's not our friends' help that helps us, so much as the confident knowledge that they will help us.

I don't know exactly who I'm quoting, but it's always something that I think of in times like these. (with "Ruby" and now with your mother.) You helped my find solace and I just hope that you can find another Gail for your purposes.

Hi Gail - just calling in to thank you for the wonderful birthday greetings. I did indeed have a lovely day, made better by being able to spend it with the whole family.

Hey Girl,
Just dropped in to say g'day, and make sure you are not melting in the heat. Stay cool.
Love the drawings, your girls are quite talented.
It was Mum's anniversary on the weekend, and I can't tell you how many times the alphabet was started and how many times I thought of you. I More...

HI Gail

I just came here to say thank you for all your support and I find that your Mum passed earlier this month. I am so sorry, sweetheart. It is a really hard thing to cope with. My mum died in 2000 after a 4 month battle with cancer, pneumonia, brain hemoraging (not the right spelling, I know) and blood clots. Anyhow, know that we are all here for you when you need us. We love you.

Gail, I just learned that your mom passed away earlier this month. As time passes your sadness will ease. Your mother will live always in the hearts of those whose lives she touched.

Oh, dear friend Gail--I was so delighted to get your note; what a cheery way to begin my day, and you know the coffee pot (or wine bottle) is ready for you anytime. Now I see by your page that your beloved mother has been taken from you, and I'm so very sorry to hear such sad news and that somehow More...

Hello Gail
Thanks God that you are ok .

Thank you for the thought. I get bored and then I write lots of e-mails to lots of people. I also do hidden object puzzles, but I'm sure my neighbors get tired of seeing me coming, even if I do bring the cake and cookies.

Hi Gail, thank you for dropping a note re our safety and we are okay here. you must be on edge also so stay safe as there is still a lot of summer to go before we have some respite.also sending my condolences on the death of your mum. a difficult time for you all but I am sure she is at peace.

Gail, your last days with your mother are a precious treasure that you will always keep close to your heart. How beautiful that you could all share that time with her in peace and unity as a family. You gave her a most fitting memorial service; it comes as no surprise that the nurses would have More...

Lots of love to you sweet friend!
Hugs and love to "yours", too...glad yesterday was just a scare - the question is, "Will it keep you from doing a 'Gail' in the future???"

Hi Gail, nothing major - I was just out for my morning run and had a nasty fall (at least I missed the bus I was avoiding!) I shouldn't be out of action for too long but it probably means I won't be doing the Canberra marathon in April (some would say that's a goog thing!)

Take care, Chris

It never ceases to amaze me how often I go to say something and find you have beaten me too it!! In this case I trundled over to Chris's page with a message ready formed in my head to glance at the previous posts and there you are...bold as brass having taken the words right outta my mouth....there is more to this pot and kettle stuff than the colour black!!!

Hi Gail - I am just stopping by to say, "hi." I am sure you must know people who have been affected by the many fires. I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you.
