Thank you to all of you. It does make a difference just knowing that I have friends I can turn to when I feel the need. I know some of my posts are long, but it is a big help just sharing it with all of you. Thank you so much for all of your support and prayers. {{{hugs back attcha!}}}

I'm about to head out to go "turkey shopping." One of the local chains has turkeys for 88 cents/lb. But there is a two turkey limit. So I have to hit 5 of these chain stores to get the # of turkeys we normally eat between October and April...I had other plans for this afternoon, but if we wait until tomorrow, the birds will be gone (special is today-Sunday--Rock--that is FB).

Nice, Kylie!

Picked the rest of the tomatoes (green), cukes and peppers, we may or may not get a freeze tonight. I think I'll cover the cherry toms and leave them out.

Love the avatar too, CW!

I went to see the Atwater Club with some of the other executive members of the Danish Club. We decided to have our annual Morten's Goose Supper there this year. It's really nice.

Now, we're getting ready to go out for supper to Mozza. Stirling says it's very nice. I haven't been there yet. It's walking distance, so I don't have to limit myself to two glasses of wine, since I won't be driving. w00t!

Thank you Dawg and Kylie. I went downstairs and out on the patio today. The weather was beautiful. Indian Summer is here. I took my sewing with me and was down there for four hours. Some of the residents came out and sat on the benches. They all asked about my daughter. I told them how she was doing. Then I mentioned the word "Cancer". You could see the recoil with fear on their face. It is a word no one wants to hear. It is probably the most feared word in our language.

I am not one to beat around the bush. Cancer is cancer. Not the Big C, or any of the other words people use. So when a person asks what is wrong, I tell them she has brain cancer. All of a sudden they change the subject. I am not offended. I do understand. It is quite an education though watching their reaction. Maybe if I use the word Cancer often enough they will become comfortable hearing it. My own feelings right now are anger. Why brain cancer? Why not uterine cancer? That can be cured rather quickly if caught early enough. I want to yell at God! He already took one daughter from me. Why does he need my other one? I don't say it is not fair. No one ever promised me fairness in my life. And no one ever told me that my life would be easy. But he took my youngest daughter by murder. And she left five kids behind. Now he gives my only daughter that is left with one of the cancers that has a lousy survivor rate. I am trying hard to find peace within myself. Maybe when I hear some good news about my daughter I can start there.
