Ooh, Scarlett, how blessed you are to live so close to your daughter. My two daughters are far away - one in New York, one in Pasadena - and I miss them like anything. I know your son is in Japan, which of course is an even greater distance. Fortunately my two sons (and consequently 4 of the 5 grandkids) are here in Toronto and we have dinner together most Sundays.

Rave (another)
Fodors posters rock! You guys always make me feel like the world is small and we all are friends. Every time I read a post from somewhere in our country I feel like I get to know our country better. We cry together and laugh together.

Kal, you always make me laugh.

Scarlett, you are sweet and I always picture you as a fun loving person.

Love to the rest of the gang and have a great weekend.

Thank you, Seetheworld, Razzledazzle and Dr. Kahuna!!! Dr. K, I will pull the frozen peas out next time I hurt! (Seriously, my sister uses a great big bag for her knee! ) Actually had to see the doc and get Skelaxin and Motrin 800 for the back, but I'm on the mend. Knee's about normal!!! Thanks for caring- you guys are the best!

Thank you jersey

Meesthare, I just have the two, one here and the 'baby' over in Japan. It would certainly be nice if he were at least on the same continent..or England or France ...

There is a rumor going on in the Scarlett household, actually a secret bit of whispering that I might get to be surprised by a visit by my dear son-san. That will of course, make me impossible to live with ( the excitement!! the cooking!! the shopping!!) so be prepared, FodorFriends!

It is a beautiful hot day in Jax and we have swarms of dragon flies...lovely

TGIF after a long emotional week.

Rant: No delicate way to say this, found out the victim of a senseless murder in my city is my ex-BF. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although he is an ex, I am carrying around alot of grief and don't know a constructive way of expressing it without hurting the new people in my life.

Rave: The wonderful people here who listen to one anothers rants and raves and let me get this off my chest.

Peace be with all of you.

Thank you , seetheworld, but! there is that hint of fall in the air that I miss so much~

atilla, I am so sorry! Knowing that anyone that you have known, has been killed is sad and upsetting. Be as sad you as feel like being, don't hold it all in, it will just stay longer that way.

Atilla, that is so-o tragic and I understand how you feel.
What a nice whisper, Scarlett.
meesthare, I once slept in my bathtub when I was single. Someone gave me a bed and during the night... so tossed it on the street and went to sleep in the tub.
bonniebroad, I put mucho pounds on while in France because I ate three meals a day and inbetween, not what I do at home.
My brother-in-law is coming for dinner. His wife left him and he's in bad shape over it.
