Bye For Awhile--We Will Miss You!

Hi everyone,

I didn't want to just disappear without saying goodbye. It isn't a forever goodbye, but we will be losing our phone and Internet after tomorrow, so I don't know when we will be able to come back. There is a possibility that we will be able to pick up our neighbor's wireless signal, since they seem to cross quite often, but there are no guarantees.

James (Maidrite) and I both love Discuss Cooking, and we definitely don't plan to stay away.

Please pray for us. Things are much worse than we have ever let on (a few people here do know), but we have a lot of faith in God and we know that things will work out. We will get back to our normal cheerful selves soon, but today is kind of a down-in-the-dumps kind of day. So don't worry about us, but if you pray, please pray for us.

Thank you--we love our DC family.

Barbara

Check your local library -- many have free Internet, some now have free wi-fi.

Thanks!

Yes, our library has wireless access. We will go there whenever we have the gas to get there. It is too far to walk (we are kind of out in the country) and the temps have been around 100 lately.

We're not out for the long-haul, but things may take a little time. And, as I mentioned to someone else earlier, God does work in mysterious ways, so maybe we will have another miracle. Stranger things have happened.

Barbara
