And patsyb, you've been a revelation! :goodjob: Looking forward to even more!

Again :thankyou: for all the hard work, Barb! And for our lovely mods and their 'putertrouble, - I know all about that! As we say in Norway: It's the thought that counts!

As I'll never be in Vegas I SO love you for doing all this for us staying at home.... :sad:

Hugs from Eva Mari :wuv:

Eva Mari and Marg,

Thanks for your kind words. I do have some more which will be posted later. I want to try to eke them out a little, although I have quite a stock. :D

Barb,

Thanks for everything you're doing re the Virtual Convention. You work so hard for GALS all the time but this must mean quite a lot of additional effort.

Until later ..

Barb, you are doing a great job!!! It's not you, don't feel like it is. I'm getting updates in text from my friends that are there too, pictures and even a video clip of the Neil Diamond impersonator :lol: I think it just hit me all at once how much I missed being there this year.

BUT YOU ROCK WOMAN!!! thanks for all your effort. :kiss:

Good morning or afternoon everyone - just popping in to say hello.

EvaMari - I would give anything to get my hands on this really beautiful vintage Gerry wine :kisswink:

What team are you favouring at the football (soccer) Euro 08? As Switzerland is already out :tantrum: I'm going for the Netherlands.

Goodmorning sweet Gals

I have a message from the Sun!

Good morning GALS & PALS,

Another day in life is here

The hour has come to redefine

Your journey ‘cross the wild frontier

Beneath a sky, in cobalt hue

You’ll stroll along your merry route

While I hope all the best for you

As you continue your pursuit.

Good morning, as the moonlight fades

And you begin your daily chores

The dawn is bright; open the shades

Then, dream until each wish is yours

Throughout the day, you’ll move in stride

As I hold your heart in each prayer

Every time that you look outside

You’ll know I'm waiting there.

Good morning, as you greet the world

Once more, your life begins anew

A fresh beginning has unfurled

And brought your goals within your view

While you seek to embrace your dreams

I’ll wish you well, ‘til day is done

I’ll keep you safe, beneath my beams

Have a great day!

Best Regards,

the sun.

Please help yourself, Risa! ;)

And I SO feel for you about not being able to use Frei... :tissues:

But you have done good in spite of it, half the teams have to go home and there are some VERRA good teams out there!!

And we didn't even qualify this time... :sad:

Or maybe not! ;) One less thing to worry about, you know! :D And we are in "good company": Denmark + the entire UK missed out, almost hard to believe...

And I really like the Netherlands too, - AND Portugal! Sweden I hoped would do better but they've shown some excellent play at least! *Claps*

ETA: Excellent poem, Helena! :hubba:

Even harder to wrap brain around the fact that both finalists in the last world cup only 2 years ago probably will be heading home already... :lalala:

*Shakes off the disappointment and savours some Gerry-cookies and hot sweet tea :music: *

So true - I really felt sorry for Alex Frei - maybe with him, we could have made it - but alas - I go and have a cookie myself :pointy:

Thanks for all the beautiful poems.

:wave: good morning, gals!!

I'm having my coffee (I make very strong coffee!) and catching up....

Patsy, yet another wonderful poem...when I get my own computer I'm going to 'save' these as I really think they'd be terrific printed on some nice paper and used for scrapbooking the Characters.

Helena, I enjoyed your sun poem...did you write it? Very nice...

DawnS :hug1:

Risa! Sorry 'your' team didn't go on to glory...it's wondeful to have sports for an interest...I only share my husband's love of sports in a peripheral way...I always cheer on his teams and offer sympathy when they are in the 'pits'!

Eva Mari...thanks for the beautiful bottle of Gerry juice adult-style and the stunning glass... :yummy: I shall take full advantage of them this afternoon while preparing a little Father's Day feast for my husband, Alan, and his dad. :pointy:

Well, the scoop on my end is...I stayed up on the 'puter until 3:25AM :unsure: awaiting word from Vegas...

but by the time Dayna was able to check in it was after 5AM my time, since she, Jenni, Susan and the other Mods were doing paperwork and clean up...

But because of glitches in Vegas the info I was awaiting wasn't ready! :(

and today doesn't sound too hopeful, either ... ah, well, patience is a virtue, they say! :lol:

That poem is by my cousin Jill! She sent it to me last week. Actually, all her emails are in rhyme. I keep telling her she would make a great witch! Our family is very artsy fartsy..

Here's one I wrote for her wedding 2 years ago:

Perhaps the planets may all shift out of place

And re-align themselves again in outer space

Perhaps all of the stars may burn out and die

But they’ll never separate us even if they try

The earth may quiver, shiver and shake

And have the most intense earthquake

The world may burn forever constantly

But we’ll always be together endlessly

Let’s make it together, you and I

With a passionate love on fire

And with my kisses of desire

I will reveal to you that I love you

Suddenly the sun may fade away

And cover the earth in darkness and dismay

And even if this moment would come and pass today

Our love is here to stay

The planet may drown in floods and turn to gray

Or fish are found swimming in the mountains of Bombay

Even if Nature may fall apart and decay

Or humanity gets lost and goes astray

Raindrops may instantly turn into sunrays

While the snow begins to fall right at the end of May

You could never let me go because I love you so

Even if gravity uproots the trees and plants

Or uphill slopes turn into downhill slants

Oceans and mountains I would dare to rip apart

Just so I can be with you sweetheart

Hi Gals!

I thought I would drop in and say hello. Sipping on a Tim Hortons coffee this morning and reading through your posts. You all sound so great! I have some work to do at home today but I take breaks here and there to keep my sanity. So nice to drop in and escape for awhile. The pics of Gerry are great! I swear I could sit here all day and just stare. :yummy:

Wishing you all a beautiful day!

Lisa

Good Morning Gals! I have the coffee brewing and I sure need it this morning. I HATE insomnia!!! Hope you're all having a wonderful father's day. My hubby is working today, so we celebrated yesterday. Today is another grueling 6-hour rehearsal for my son *sigh* I'll be glad when this show is over.

Hugs,

Jenn

HI ladies. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I came down with a nice flu bug yesterday, so my night was spent in bed! But today it seems a bit better. I heard the news that Gerry called the girls in Vegas. That's great. Nice to know he's so gracious to his fans. I guess we knew that already but it's still sweet. I'd love to get there next year! Maybe there will be a whole new wave of us newbies joining in for '09

I've been watching the Euro '08 with hubby whos an avid 'football' fan. The TV has pretty much be locked on the sports channel. I am enjoying it too and for one who's never watched before, I think I've been missing a great sport. Nice shorts boys!

I just got back in the house and I think I'll stay for the day. I am still not 100% but got up this morning to make my Dad some diabetic strawberry/blueberry jam and ran that out to him at his cottage for his breakfast. Happy Father's day!

That's it for me. I feel like I've fallen out of touch here lately and I miss everyone!

Dropping in to say "Good Morning" but by the time I got done reading thru ...well "Good Afternoon"! :cunning:

Patsy, I can't get over how beautiful your poems are. Could I by any chance either use some of your verses on my siggy's that I make or maybe ask for your help when it comes to the text? I am usually at a loss when it comes to anything poetic .....

Helena, Thanks for your poetry too! I am so impressed by you gals that can make words sound so stunning!

Gotta go and get ready for the real world today so hopefully I'll be back before this day is done!

Party on Ladies, :wave: Frannie
