  1. CONGRATS to all the winners, and a huge THANK YOU to those that made the VC possible. Hugs, Judy
  2. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the Virtual Con and and the live stream & chat. It was almost like being there, and we definitely felt a part of it all. Big hugs, Judy
  3. patsyb, Thank you for sharing those two great poems. I am going to copy and keep them with my GB memorabelia! Hugs to all, Judy
  4. I just finished watching the replay of the evenings events--it was wonderful and so nice and clear. Hope to watch it live tomorrow night, but I am one who cannot multi- task so I will probably just be watching the feed and the chat. Heartfelt thanks to all of you who are working so diligently to bring the Convention to those of us who can only be there in spirit. This is certainly the next best thing to being there in person. Hugs to all, Judy
  5. Please add my name to the list, and a big THANK YOU to those of you who are making this possible. Hugs, Judy
  6. Really nice photos, Kathy. Your family is so great-looking and from what you have said--they are just GREAT! Thanks to all for the kind words, I am finally accepting my friend's passing. Hard when she was younger than me! Guess it is never easy no matter what a loved one is when they pass. For all of you heading out to Vegas--have a WONDERFUL TIME and tell us all about it when you get back. Love you all, Judy
  7. Thank you to all for your kind words. Losing anyone we love is always hard. I know Vina would be the first one to tell me to "get up off my butt and GET GOING!!" So I am trying. Want to send those of you who are heading to Vegas my very best wishes for you to have a wonderful time. I will never forget my time with GALS in '07. Will definitely be thinking of you! Hugs to all, Judy
  8. My Dear Friends here at Golden Girls, I am just dropping by to wish everyone a very safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend, and to wish all of you who will be travelling to Vegas next week the same. I won't repeat comments to individuals, but know I do come here and my sentiment is the same as those of you who do post often. A sad few days for me--lost an avid GB fan who lived across the mountains--3 hr drive but we got together the first time when 300 came out and have visited even stayed with each other. Jennyw wasn't here on this sight, but think some of you may remember her from the TU

  10. I just found this tonight and it nearly brought me to tears. I had no experience like this, but you certainly made it feel "real" to me. Good one! Judy
  11. Anne, thanks for sharing your story--hearing it first hand makes it seem more real. I usually follow these things on tv or newspaper, but lately not so much. It is so sad when folks lose everything to these natural disasters--well, to any disaster. Andrea, will be praying for you to get the job at daycare or that another one comes up real soon. Anna, just so very happy to have you back with us. LOVE NEVER DIES--four times? Wow. I would give my rt. arm to see it once! Well, maybe I exaggerate just a wee bit--LOL. Elissa, my daughter is being "low-cencused" more often, too. She
  12. Hello to Everyone, and a special "Welcome Back!" to Anna. Such wonderful news about your eyes! Hope things continue to improve. My daughter just told me this yesterday--has been weeding outside in the flower beds and hasn't seen a single snake (garter snakes--harmless.) Well, she has several cats and 3 dogs. However, her little yorkie has been known to bring in a snake. Yesterday morning she was hanging up something in her bedroom closet, and felt a little tickle on her bare foot. When she looked down, it was a rather long garter snake--yikes. Well, she said she had her "best" Steve I
  13. Just a quick report from the Pacific Northwest--and with your weather in the southern states, I think I am rather glad for the always predictable rain! I do hope all of you are well and making it through this latest round of storms. Andrea--it must be so very frightening to never know if that big whirlwind is going to touch down at your place. I did have to laugh at the idea of letting the boys play in the mud--they will wash!! SO TRUE!! Elissa, I had to give up wearing contacts after 35 years for the very same reason-the transition lenses are wonderful, but I still yearn for the contacts.
  14. I am hitting the "boards" a little late--the day is almost over, but I wanted to say how cute are those photos of Barb's grandkids! And I also want to let Barb and all of you know I am sending good thoughts and prayers for all. Huggles, Judy
  15. Ladies, Our friend Melodie has asked for prayers for her baby nephew who has a rare and fatal disease, and now her brother and sister-in-law are having severe personal problems. Please check out her thread in the prayer requests: it sounds like the family can use all the help they can get from the Man Upstairs. Thanks, Judy
  16. With out repeating everything that has just been said, may I just tell you GALS how WONDERFUL YOU ARE? Helping others, furry friends too, all such wonderful endeavors! Hugs to every one of you!! Judy
  17. Love your photos Barb--look just as you do now!! Elissa you do as well, and Sue--love the child photos--so cute. While you are waiting for Frannie, I will attempt to put my photo here. It isn't a good copy, so it may not be good. This was my senior photo--I had just come from the hairdresser. As I was walking from the car into the house a bird flew over and PLOP right on the top of my head! It was unbelievable, but my mother had to do the best she could to remove, fix the hair and to the photographer's I went. Came home and washed my hair. I never look at this photo without laugh
  18. I'm here, too--just know you get tired of me saying that. I will say that I am very glad to be an Oregonian when it comes to spring snow and tornadoes. My parents were originally from the midwest so they knew about those things, and it is one of the reasons they moved out here before I was born. Guess I should be happy with a little extra rain! However, we are actually having a beautiful day, so I won't complain! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Hugs, Judy
  19. I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted and a lot has happened! Two precious new babies--Congratulations, Grandma Diane! Nothing more precious than holding a cuddly newborn baby! So glad mothers and babies are doing well. Fran and I both wish we were joining you in Vegas, but not this year--who knows, maybe sometime down the road. Can't believe how close it is to the CON! The days, hours and minutes just keep ticking away. Things are still in a bit of turmoil in my life regarding my youngest daughter and her divorce--but the papers are now filed and he is being se
  20. Just add me to the "list" of everything that was said earlier today! So GLAD you are feeling better, Barb, about time!!! And yes, the saying for today is a very good one. It's been a long, long "winter" and I can't wait for REAL spring to get here! It's dark, dreary and very showery, here again today. SO much easier to be cheerful when the sun is shining! Love ya all, Judy
  21. Elissa, I haven't practiced nursing since the early 70's. I worked in the OR and then in some doctors office as relief for their nurses and front desk persons. My daughter is a nurse--put herself through the two year nursing program here, and spent 10 years in long term care, then went to our major hospital and is now daytime charge nurse in orthopedics. I couldn't handle the stress of the job and became a stay at home mom. Love hearing of your backgrounds! We did share some memories--and the conclusion is for certain--life was MUCH SIMPLER back then. I am sure the "grown ups" ha
  22. Me, too! How could I have missed that? Certainly have seen the movie enough times! Guess I must have been looking at his...face? Just dvr'd the movie last night so I can have it a one push of a button! Love Mike C. Love Gerry B. Judy
  23. Fran's right--I think a lot of us would loved to have had all the many experiences Suzie had growing up! I lived in the same town in the same house for 15 years, and then moved only across town for the last three years of high school. I attended nursing school in the bigger city across the river, married right out of school to a local boy, and after living in a couple of rentals we built our home 41 years ago--paid $15,900. And here we still are! Hope more of you will fill us in on your backgrounds! Hugs, Judy
  24. Have Mercy, I am SO sorry to hear about your kitty. I love my anmials as "family" and the older I get the harder it seems to lose one. You have my complete understanding and sympathy. I grew up in a very small town across the river from a larger college city--of course, both have grown over my 65 years. I remember the things you mentioned and loved the simplicity of our lives. I feel very fortunate to have been raised in those post-war times. Well, I guess there was really no "post war" time, but it was 1944 and just near the end of WWII. Live was simple, and our needs were simple.
  25. Just doing a late night "fly by" to wish you all a great weekend! Amy--love the photos of little Gerry and friend! And will be so glad to hear details of your new grandbabies when they arrive, Diane. Rather than just repeat all that has just been so nicely said by Frannie and others--might I just say: DITTO? I do wish everyone the very best and send Judy
