You have a point there but we are all friendly here. Yes that is Steven my #4 grandchild 2 boys and a girl before him and 2 girls after him. He lives across the street he and #3 are children of my middle dau. The older two are children of my older dau and the last two are from my youger son.
Oh I can well imagine how your children felt when they lost their baby. I have had my share of that as well as older dau lost her 1st pg which was twins. Not a happy time for sure.
Join us in the games some are really fun

Tongue Hi Minny

Hi Minny
When I saw your little blue bird and your name I just had to tell you something neat. When I was a little girl (around 8) my sister and I found a couple little ringneck doves that had fallen out of their nest. We raised them and they lived a long time. We named one Minny and one Moe. So your name brought back wonderful memories.

I always try and remember to explain that I am a girl and I worry that people won't respond if they think I'm a guy. I can understand since nowadays you can't be too careful and have to watch the Internet. I used to have a few men I taped to when I was into palling.

Hee hee Hi Myan

Hey, another person who likes to fish!!! We go fishing whenever we can. We live in Missouri but go to Grand lake in Oklahoma to fish. It's so nice sitting out fishing, so calming. What kinds of crafts do you do? I crochet, knit, do plastic canvas, paint by number, and am going to try my hand at counted crosstitch. I used to do crewel embroidery and loved it. I also like to latchhook rugs. A few months back I bought a sewing machine and some material, I want to make some pretty quilts for my bed. I have never made one before so haven't worked up the ourage to start yet. I would love to handsew one.

I have a friend Veronica who always went by Ronnie too. And have one here that is called George and her name too is Georgia. And another friend her name is Andrea but every one calls her Andi pronounced like Andy just spelled diff.
Donnie I don't have a creative bone in my body. If I do it is well hidden. But sure admire all of you that do. Including my daughter who makes really great necklaces, watches etc

I forgot to answer hop on computer. I usually don't have "time" as it is a rare commodity. When school is in session, I have to do some major multi-tasking to be able to do fun things. The other is going to the races. I usually do alot of research or reading research. Between semesters, when I actually do have time, I like to play on the computer, play with my GKs, or spend time with my friends.

I am on my computer wwwwwaaaayyyy too much and know what, I wouldn't change it if I could This computer is my relax time, I get such enjoyment out of it. I know there is other things I should be doing and I do them, it just takes a little longer.

I'm also on the computer a lot. I'm here everyday. I like playing computer games too. I figure they keep my mind working.
I like to read, especially mysteries.
And I like different kinds of needlework.

Hee hee Hi Sharon

What kinds of needlework do you do? I just bought up a whole bunch of Crewel kits so I am set now. I hadn't done crewel embroidery in years.
