   StormCnter  No, Gram. I wrote to her a couple of days ago (snail mail ) and included everyone's good wishes and told her we miss her. She has no way to write back or communicate. We'll just cross our fingers and hope for her recovery and return. Of course I'll post any news as soon as I get any.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Tell Mei I am thinking about her and still working on prayers!!

   StormCnter  I will, Gram. I can only contact her by snail mail, so it's a little slow. She knows we are concerned.

   StormCnter  I looked up a review of it, Gram. I agree. It should be a good one.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  This post is nothing of particular importance, just felt like sharing something light. As most of you know hubby and I are in a mobile home park ( like a good number of us ) and the vacant lot behind us is finally getting a new home. I have a perfect spot for watching from one of the bedroom windows and I didn't realize the work that goes onto setting up a home. First digging out the old slab, then a proper survey, which by the way was done wrong, then locating the electrical and various other cables and then the pouring of a new pad. The new home came in yesterday and was sort of plunked down and now it waits to be "put together". Apparently this will be my entertainment for the balance of the week. Oh yes, to make things more entertaining they say rain is in the picture. Well, that's it folks. Have a good day!

   StormCnter  Gram, renting or owning the lots in your park? It makes a difference as to how the site is prepared for a home. My cousin operates a small mobile home park in north Louisiana and we owned one in North Central Texas for 20 years. In addition, as newlyweds exiled to California in the late '50s, we lived in a small mobile home for three years among a whole park full of active and retired Navy families. Thanks for your comment. I would have watched with you.

   Gram77  Good morning, Storm. We own our lots and it makes for a very well kept park and owners who really care. My parents moved here in the early 60s and when they passed it become mine. I always said I wouldn't like the mobile home life. Not so, it is just fine!

   Gram77  I know by law homes have to have tie-downs but either they don't show or don't know what I am looking for. I'll have to pay attention as the home gets settled. Our place is so old that tie-downs weren't even talked about. We just hope that Bradenton will not get a big blow. There was one in the 20s and none since. I told hubby if this place comes down on our head I want to move to something all cement block!!

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Thanks to books and cross stitch and an all around great personality I have found a new friend. Recently she shared a book with me called A Man Called Ove. It's getting good reviews and looks like something I should be my next read. Any one else read this?

   StormCnter  Gram, I loved A Man Called Ove and have recommended it to many. The writer has a couple of additional books out, too, and they are kind of fun.

   Gram77  I am barely into A Man Called Ove and it is like reading a story about my mom. Everything, every neighbor, car, cat, dog, etc. was her personal worry and up for inspection. It is going to be a really neat read and is going to bring back memories.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Just can't resist this pet peeve. It isn't in anger, it's something that makes me laugh and wonder. I had some guests yesterday and several of them during the visit used the bathroom. Each one came out wiping their hands on hankies or just sort of shaking their hands to remove dampness. Now I have (as most of you on doubt do ) a gazillion guest towels in the bathroom. My question is; why does no one use them? The puzzle/giggle for the day.

   StormCnter  I think sometimes guests are hesitant to mess up nice guest towels. Bot my husband won't wipe his hands on towels at all because he read somewhere that towels hold bathroom bacteria. I think he's being ridiculous.

   Gram77  This is interesting. A friend of mine recently said the exact same thing your husband said. Odd.

   Gram77  I often wonder about friends that haven't turned up in a while. I am doing just great. As for stitching, every inch of wall space has a framed cross stitch hanging. Even in the bathroom. I truly hope that some much missed names continue to pop up. It's such a treat.

   MeiDei  I 'm one Northerner who looked forward to reading our Southern friends remarks in their vernacular i.e., along the lines of Tennessee Ernie Ford's" I feel like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs" - missing the chuckles.

Nice to see you back Phooey, trusting our prayers for your wife have speedied up her recovery, waking her each morning happy, healthy & a joy to be around!

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I discovered The Connection on my 77th birthday. The activity was always great. Then there came a time when personalities had differences of opinions that things turned personal and it seemed no matter how hard others tried to get it turned around we lost some really neat people. I miss those who moved on and often think about where they are, how they are, and do they post others places. Do they ever think of us who have hung on? My goal, when I first logged in, was to be here for my 87th birthday. I'm getting there. Will The Connection be here?

   Mike PHX  So do I, Grams. You've been one of my favorite "conversalionists" since I've been on the site. It's amazing how you feel you know someone you've never met face to face. It shouldn't stop.

   Gram77  Not to worry. If I can believe everything my yearly tests and my doctor tells me I'll see the age of 87. I'll stick around as long as everyone forgives my goofy spelling and typos that I miss.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Has anyone read Paper Lion by George Plimpton? I recently read a good review. If it's in the library I might take a crack at it.

   StormCnter  Gram I read it when it came out. How many zillion years ago was that? But George Plimpton is always entertaining.

   MeiDei  We'd occasionally see him on one of the piers in Newport, RI many years ago - he could be a character study.
