Wendy, I'm pleased to read that your trip went so well. I hope that you are able to do more outings. I had seen on Facebook's Mudcat page that you (at least I thought it was you) had something you wanted to post here, so I was concerned, but now I'm relieved. I wondered who else might be needing this thread. It's good to meet all of you here again.

I guess just about everyone remembers where they were at the time. I was driving a truck round the London orbital motorway when I heard it on the radio. it took some time before I realized that this was actually happening as cindy kent was relaying what was happening. at first I thought premier radio was broadcasting a drama - such was the unbelievable horror - of what was being relayed.

lovely account of your trip, wendy.

Good morning, just put a pot of coffee on if you would like to join me....

we were away for the weekend celebrating my cousin's 70th birthday. We took mother and stayed overnight, the first time we have taken her away for two and a half years!Must admit I was rather nervous to see how she would cope being in a different house, 200 miles in the car, and comfort stops at the motorway services. (But she met Pudsey bear at Fleet and we took a photo! )

All my eight cousins were at the party and they were so supportive , they took over and Billy and I were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. I didn't get to bed till the early hours, such fun. Mum said she woke up and thought" this isn't my room" but when she saw her clothes hanging on the wardrobe she knew she was ok!!

Yesterday my cousins son took us to a lovely restaurant in Salisbury for brunch and mum coped really well.It has made me think that we could maybe do more outings if we have other people with us to help.

Today we are having tea with our beautiful granddaughter Bunny, she is 7 today. How she changed our lives seven years ago, what joy and happiness little ones bring! Being with my cousins and some of their grandchildren made me think how the next generations will carry on the love and family ties that my mother and her parents instilled in us.It feels good!!

Have caught up with the crew this morning, we too remembered September the 11th and lit a candle. Thought of Billy's family in NJ and the friends they lost.

The sun is shining here on the Essex coast, sending love and sunshine to you all, specially Spaw, Nigel and Ann.

much love,
Wendy xxxxxxxx

Good to hear from you, Spaw, and I hope you do well next week, too.

I have been meaning to ask what Nigel asked--about 'Catters in CO, but usually when I think of it I'm not at my computer, and when I am at the computer I'm so tired my mind almost goes blank!. Thanks, Janie and Spaw, for news about folks in CO. I have been thinking mostly about Katlaughing's family there.

Gnu, thank you and all others around the world who helped people who were stranded during 9/11.

I was at work, teaching second graders that day. Anothe teacher came to my classroom door and asked me to come into the hallway for a minute. Then she told me what had happened. Throughout the morning I debated what I should tell my students and when. Right before lunch I knew they would be eating with children from other classes, and I had no idea what they had been told and what they would tell my children, so I told them briefly and matter-of-factly what had happened and reminded them that they were safe and if they wanted to see me during lunch and recess they could. None did. Throughout the day the classroom intercoms were filled with announcements for one child after another to come to the office for early dismissal as anxious parents took their children home. Not one parent came for any child in my class. I hope that was because they trusted me to care for their children. When I got home there were two messages on my answering machine: one from my son (already married and himself a dad), and one from my penpal-since-childhood friend in Lincolnshire, UK. While both figured I was safe, they wanted to make sure that I was okay emotionally, too.

Cami Sue has relatives there and she's posted on FB that things are very tough but their houses were okay although numerous outbuildings and other equipment were lost.

Sorry I've been posting a bit less but 3D has taken some time that was unexpected and a bit out of the norm. All's well, just a bit busy. The nice thing is that I check in here and keep finding we are sailing on a beam reach in a fair breeze.........Kinda' nice ain't it?

Monday begins another chemo week and they have pretty well fallen into a pattern....***sigh***....but they also are helping out and I feel better and haven't had blood since early April, about 6 months.

Let's enjoy this point of sail while we can. Squalls can come up quickly and there are too many oil tankers who don't have much concern about small sailing craft. LOL.....This thread keeps me coming here and you all are in my thoughts every day.

Enjoy them all!

Well... here is THE story. I did what every single one of you who has particpated in this thread would do... I tried to help as best I could. End of story.

Oh... there is a downside. Unfortunately, a number of children saw the Bodhrans on my fireplace mantle* and wanted to know what they were and I played them for them so I am responsible for spreading the Bodhran further. Sorry. I taught some of these children, and two adults, Hran by email and they are pretty damn good now that they are teenagers and beyond.

I recall 9/11. Can't forget. Not the shock of it on TV. I get emails every year from a lot of people I put up at my house when the planes were grounded. I took them by the truckload (Ford F150 - yes, sitting in the truck bed too) back to my house from the Moncton Coliseum to shower and what have you and have a proper bite. As many as a dozen at a time. I put up several families overnight who had small children. So did a lot of my fellow Monctonians as well as people all across Atlantic Canada. Home cooked meals and sundries of all kinds were delivered to the stranded by Atlanic Canucks and, a few years later, George Bush actually touched down in NS and said thanks. I think he was on the ground for nearly an hour. I'd say more about that but... you know.

Ann & I made it through 9th ok. We shared some tears, sitting in the car as we were about to return home from shopping. A day that we were both dreading, turned out very differently. Jane's eldest son, who shares the same birthday, cooked (he has inherited his Mum's love of & talent for, cooking) an enormous dinner for 15, including cake, candles, the whole kit & caboodle. I received a tax refund & Ann's brother invited us to spend a week in Truro, down in the south-west of England.
                                        Happy Birthday, Jane & S. Jane, you would've been so proud of what your son prepared & how he conducted himself.

Wendy, I've been admiring the light too. There is such clarity to the air and the colors and the sharpness of the mountains against the sky. I found myself telling someone this morning that it is 'Autumn air'. And perhaps it is.

Nigel, you and your family will be in our thoughts tomorrow. I find anniversaries difficult. The hardest one for me is the relentless slipping into the past. I have many happy memories but sometimes...

Two thoughts: About whether to tell your Auntie, Dan, that her sister has died, I once read that it is not to the old but the young whom one must fear to deliver bad news. The old have had many losses and have learned to cope.

And regarding your planned trip to Charlotte, North Carolina, Nigel, Bobert lives not far away. If/when you meet him, I think you'll find him a joy.

Me too Janie......The 'Cat has been so slow lately that I haven't waited it out and not bothered trying repeatedly. Glad I made it today!

This thread is always close to my heart. I have seen some postings by Wendy on FB and greatly enjoyed her pictures and have touched some other bases as well but it frankly pisses me that this site seems to have slowed down so much and become less useable than I can ever recall. I think it bothers me more now than before because of this thread............

I'm okay. Things have developed into a pattern of sorts with the treatment. And that makes me think of Nigel's comments above.

My Mom and I were very close and when she died I was 18 and in college 250 miles away. We'd been expecting this for a long while but my Mom was always very positive to everyone except perhaps my Dad who played along with her attitude towards the outside world. When I got back home finally late in the night, Dad and I talked for several hours. The one thing he said that struck me then and now was, "Not a day will go by that you don't think of her."   He was more than right.

At first it was so far out in front of my thoughts it was painful. But as the grief process took place the pain lessened and some happiness in her memories took over. The dates of importance began to kick in and again at first they were at best bittersweet but as time passed two things happened. The daily thoughts still occurred as they do even today but they are brief thoughts relating to something or nothing....brief thoughts that bring me a warm feeling. Special dates became more numerous and they came with happier memories and limited sadness or melancholy. Those times which at first caused me so much pain became more numerous and gave me real joy in the stories I recalled of her. Now I value those special days as times I can tell stories about her and bring her back to people who never knew her. And she's back without tears and often with smiles and laughter.

Same thing when my Dad died a few years later. And as I've gotten older and lost close friends, they too have entered the pattern. Awhile back I wondered if perhaps I was too involved with dead folks so I asked Karen and a couple of others if this might be the case. They didn't think so and had never really noticed. They just enjoyed the stories most of which had me as the "butt of the joke."

I have no idea if any of the above makes sense in any way. If it does I'm glad and if it doesn't simply write it off as the ravings of a lunatic mind .............

I love you all!



Spaw

gnu said - I am staring at the keyboard. I know that must sound poorly but... there it is. I know someone will have something better to say so I shall defer.

When my good friend John Dengate died 5 weeks ago, all I could reply to his wife was - 'very sad news - love to all. I have no other words at the moment'.

I still haven't been able to say much more to her tho we've had many emails & have met up several time, most recently last week when she gave me his ties to use in quilting. She said I'd expressed my admiration for John so many times over the years that I didn't need to say anything more.

His songwriter & poet friends have all found the words to express what I feel.

It's the same here.

it seems strange that we talk of celebrating the life of those we have lost.
and yet such a positive aspect may deflect some sorrow, and even worse ,destructive bitterness.
in your case ,nigel, it seems that being thankful for what you and ann had ,rather than harbouring a bitter spirit, has evidenced your caring and thoughtful comments on this voyage we share in.

I'm taking some shore leave so I'll be in Palma, Majorca, Monday to Friday. On Monday evening I'll raise a glass to you and all here.

Hasta la vista!
Pedro.

I am staring at the keyboard. I know that must sound poorly but... there it is. I know someone will have something better to say so I shall defer.

All things considered, I think Ann & I are not doing too badly. Yesterday was special & a first for the two of us. The original head teacher (an Oxford Alumni) for whom Ann worked, a wonderful lady now in her nineties, invited us out to lunch at The Oxford & Cambridge Club in Pall Mall, London. Originally, of course, a 'Gentleman's Club', now welcoming both sexes happily through it's huge & totally anonymous front doors. There is absolutely nothing on the exterior of the building, not even a discreet brass plaque, to indicate that 'this is the place'. If you are a member, you know the address & that is enough. Ann & I have never visited such a club & really didn't know quite what to expect. Despite the grandeur of the setting, it was friendly & welcoming. I had to observe the dress code (Jacket & tie...I possess one of each!), but other than that, a very pleasant, extended lunch, followed by coffee in one of the most beautifully decorated lounges we have ever seen.
          Back in the real world, we are approaching the first 'anniversary' since Jane died. Monday 9th September would have been her 48th birthday. She shares this date with her eldest son, so we will be celebrating, but in a changed & different way. Like going to the club, we don't really know how the day will go...a slightly awkward mix of happiness, tinged with sadness I imagine.
          Much Love, Hugs & Kisses to All,
                                                            Nigel & Ann.
                                                            xxxxxxxxxx

The crew has been quiet for a few days. Too much grog? How is everyone?
