Can We Make a Pact?


Recommended Posts

I am so very sad to read that Lenny (Lenr8) passed away this evening. I appreciate his wife and father letting us know.

Many times I notice members aren't posting and as it continues to go on I start to get concerned as to whether they are ok. I always hope it is because they are feeling well...

but sometimes it is because they aren't well and we don't know what has happened or we find out much later, or we never find out.

So can we make a pact? Promise you will let someone know that if you are ill or in the hospital or something happens to you, that they should come here and let us know.

Excellent idea! I have already told my husband about this site. He has my username and password and if i should get really sick or land up in hospital, he will let u all know.

Hope others will do same. We do worry, as Ry said, about how u all r doing when we haven't heard in so long. For instance, after that poignant and desperate post from Carleen some time ago, I haven't seen anything from her at all.. I'm worried :-(

Hi Ry,

That’s a great idea. I often wondered myself when I don’t here from someone :?: Told my family about this message board also. Peace, take care and God Bless.

If I Could Catch a Rainbow:

If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it just for you, And share with you its beauty, On the days you’re feeling blue. If I could build a mountain, You call your very own, A place to find serenity, A place to be alone. If I could take your troubles, I would toss them in the sea, But all these things I’m finding, Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain, Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best A friend that’s always there. Author Unknown

Is there a way Rick could add an icon or symbol to the member's name on the Memberlist, such as a bunch of flowers, when someone passes? Sometimes, sad updates are made by people not on the user's account and therefore when scanning through the member list, the last posting is NOT the latest news.

Just a thought, but kinda morbid, too...

Thanks, Ry!

We had one HECKUVA party with all those delivered pizzas...did a reverse search on YOUR number for an address....hope you enjoy the strippers! :wink: The lady at the agency said she was sorry but Chippendales dancers could not be delivered on PROMISE of payment at the door, but that a belly-dancing Miss Piggy could be....

Stephanie, make mine a convertible with a heavy duty heater...I plan on dolling up like a snowbaby and driving it with the top down in the snow!

Speaking of birds......

Did you know that there's a place where one can order three foot tall Pink Flamigo lawn ornaments. I know this because a friend of mine who is a Michigander is going to receive this as a gift. I haven't decided if there will be 42 of them all over her front yard on Christmas Morning, or if I should save it for her next birthday. I'll need to decide soon.....I'm just trying to imagine what it will be like to see 42 hot pink and ugly birds in the snow.

OK, Ry, You can add me to the list;

All things considering, I am a SURVIVOR, so far, and after dealing with lung cancer well what else could happen!! :shock::shock: Just a wee bit worried about finding wayward children at my door or a flock of live chickens from Okieland laying eggs on my deck.


God bless and be well

Hmmm, Dave, nice visual....can't get the HeeHaw dancing pigs with pasties out of my head!! (& I think when pigs become strippers, they have themselves DE-AUGMENTED 'cuz Miss Piggy only has TWO....hmmm, I THINK....)

...and Fay, how much ARE those pink yard birds? I wanted to bedazzle my dad with 60 of 'em for his last b-day, but he had just been home a week from HIS cancer surgery and I didn't want to upset him (OR make him laugh...). I figure I can do 61 next year and he'd never expect it because it's not a "milestone" year...

I know why Bob's not sending his number...it's probably one of those off-shore 900 numbers...hehehe

1-900 BAD BOYS

1-900 BAD DAWG

1-900 SPEAK UP

1-900 CHEEEEP (Dirty bird talk line)

Darn late night TV!!!

My number?

Ah, Dave...I've been crying so much lately that when I get teary from laughing so hard I almost wet my pants...well, laughter is good for the soul! (Dirty jokes keep me breathing heavy - laughing is a little more "breathy" after lung surgery...LOL)

Screw this cancer stuff, my constitution is broken glass and rusty nails with the temperment of a junkyard dawg...I'm just a sweet lil thang, after all... 8)

...and where did them little dancin' piggies go??? They were just can-canning across my screen a minute ago...or was that them dang drugs again???
