Hey Irene,

See the ship? See the path of the footprints in the sand going AWAY from the ship? That is the evidence that we need!!!!!!! YOUR footprints!

Where art thou, Irene? Are you sneaking away to our final destination already?

To my dear friends on this thread...

I'm now ready to tell you about my wonderful Vegas experience... Christina's story about this autistic boy snapped me out of this "hole" that I was in... I can't explain it... I guess I was missing everyone sooooooo much that I got in this trance for the past week...

First I need to thank you for your patience and your kindness... You have been all sooooo wonderful!!!

If I had any doubts about my trip to Vegas, they disappeared the first hour I was there and more so that afternoon and that first evening...

Within an hour of being at the Hilton, I get to meet MC, MelanieD and the Drake (Anne) and of course the famous and handsome Michael Bublé... This is mindboggling!!! Anne, I'm soooooo thankful for meeting you! You and your husband are so sweet and wholesome! You're picture with Michael is out of this world!!! Mine's all blurry! Ah well, at least I got to meet him and talk to him once more!

Later on that afternoon, I get to meet my darling Grand-maman Jewel and her beautiful daughter Susan... When I see her, I think I just freeze!!! She is sooooooo beautiful, graceful and has such presence that I just kinda "drink" in the image of her walking towards me... Then, I just run towards her and hug her for the longest time!!!!! No words are said at first... We just hug each other and look at each other in amazement, wonder, awe and disbelief. We are finally in each other's presence and each other's arms. I am "HOME"... I just don't want to let go of that intense moment. I'm telling you... She is beautiful inside and out. What you "read" from her and about her is all true and there's nothing fake about her... She is all HEART!!!

Grand-maman Jewel... I'm sooooo thankful for having seen you, hugged you and felt you for those two and half days. They will last me a lifetime!!! See you later, alligator! Hahahaha!!! Sending you kisses oooooozing with love and laughter!!!

That evening, I decide to get in line for the Standing Room Only at 7PM eventhough the concert starts at 9PM. Just wanted to make sure that I would get the greatest view. So for a long while, Grand-maman Jewel, Susan, MelanieD, MC, Anne (the Drake), Greenfrog and Twinsmom keep me company... I get to see many of the boys going in, get to meet JBN, LocaLola, her husband, Gina and many others... Many screams are heard, many pictures are taken and many hugs are given... Everybody I meet is kindness and sweetness.

It is now 8:30PM... Most of my companions leave for the concert hall... Suddenly I see this rather large group of people walking toward the lobby of the concert hall. I'm captivated and curious as to who they are. I see this beautiful blond woman, her hair in a gorgeous poof, all dressed up and her handsome date... I keep looking and I'm wondering if this is Amber and Lewis. Since I hadn't seen many pictures of them I wasn't sure so I had this huge question mark on my face... Imagine! Suddenly, Grandpa Mitch face appears and I realize this is Michael's family!!!!!!! Amber, Lewis, Grandpa Mitch, Grandma Yolanda, Brandee, Rob, Crystal and Lanny... As I'm reacting to this realization, Amber sees me, recognizes me and walks to me! Suddenly I'm surrounded by the whole Bublé/Santaga family, get introduced to everyone and get hugs and kisses from all of them! This family is breathtakingly beautiful, kind and generous!!!

Amber... Sweet Amber... I thank my stars (and fate, hahaha!!!) for having met you, Lewis and your wonderful giving family!!! I feel so strongly for all of you... If fate allows it, I'm looking forward to many more meetings, hugs and exchanges with the lot of you... You are the best!!! Just meeting you made the trip to Vegas worthwhile. I was now ready to go back home. Hahahaha!!! NOT!!! I wanted more!!!

But wait!!! This is not all!!! There's more... As Amber, Lewis and the family leave for the concert hall, this stranger (man) comes straight at me and says: "I have this extra ticket. No strings attached. Do you want it??" As you can imagine, I'm stunned yet stare at him in disbelief!!! I'm thinking: Yeah right!!! This is Vegas Mister!!! No strings attached??! Bublé ticket for free??! Do I look like I was born yesterday??! Since I don't say anything, the man repeats himself again putting the emphasis on the "No strings attached" and asks me once more if I want the ticket. I finally say "No strings attached!!! Free???" For one last time he repeats "I have an extra ticket. COME!!!" I finally snap out of "it" (seems to be a pattern of mine lately!!! Hahahaha!!!) and say: "OK!!! I'll go with you." I'm thinking: what could go wrong in the hall, I'll be surrounded and will be with friends the whole time... I learn that we are sitting in the fifth row on the left side of the stage and that Dave has just purchased the tickets from EBay... I'm shocked since I realize just how much he's paid for those tix... He replies: "It doesn't matter... I've got the money!!!" Everybody is stunned as I am when they see me walking in there and sitting five rows from the stage... They had just left me some 15 minutes ago... What's happened??!

I know I've said it before but I'm going to say it again. It's mindboggling!!!!!!!! From that moment on, there is no doubts about my trip to Vegas. It's meant to be!!! Fate wants me there!!! MOUSE... You were sooooooo right when you sent me that PM telling me that I was to go to Vegas... You sent chills up my spine with your fateful message!!! I cannot wait to meet you for real!!! You are one special person!

Before the concert, I get to meet Pati (Colorado) Bublé... She is soooo beautiful!!! I wish I could have her glorious hair!!! They are stunning!!! I get the pleasure of introducing her to Amber. Amber was just sooooo thrilled to meet her!!! It was wonderful to see those two meet.

Pati... Next time we meet, we spend time together. I didn't get to chat with you and get to know you better. Promise me, next time we will take the time... I'm looking forward to it!!! You are a gem!!! Thank you for your sweet words on this thread. I'm doing better now!!

Also got to meet Daniel, Jenn in Seattle,... OMG!!! I'm forgetting names but not the faces... There are soooooo many board members, it's almost impossible to remember all their board names (since I get them confused with their real names...). Rest assure, I will never forget meeting you all!!!

OK... Here's the second part to my Vegas/Bublé extravaganza...

Michael is terrific on that first concert. Eventhough he's extremely tired for having been recording the day before and that morning, he's in top form. I'm taken right from the beginning when he hits the first notes of "Feeling Good"... but he has me with his Elvis impersonation and "Viva Las Vegas!!". His stage charisma is just phenomenal!!! The backdrop in breathtaking!!! The lights and the props add a magical touch to the show. Everything is just perfect!!! Dave (my ticket angel, hahahaha!!!) is enjoying the show as well. He keeps shaking his head in affirmation the whole time. I know Dave is hooked on Michael's music. Michael, you gained a new fan that fateful night...

DAVE... If you read this thread... JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR THE "NO STRINGS ATTACHED" TIX YOU GAVE ME THAT NIGHT... YOU ARE A GENEROUS MAN AND YOU TRULY ARE A GENTLEMAN!!! WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST!!!

After the concert, Dave disappears into thin air!!! I've never seen him since... I would of liked to get him a card or a bottle of wine but didn't even know his family name or where he was staying in Vegas... FATE!! Sometimes, people get to cross your life's path for only a very brief and short time but the memory will last a lifetime!!! Dave, I will never forget you!!!

After the concert, I tell Irene to stay close by the hall's lobby... I want to introduce her to Amber and Lewis. Sure enough... I get to keep my promise to Grand-maman Jewel... She gets to meet the one and only Amber, the one person this thread is dedicated to!!! I have chills just remembering that very intense and emotional moment when they both meet!! It's soooooo cute to see Amber going on and on about how touched she is by the thread and reassuring us all that she reads the posts on the board everyday!!! She may not respond but she does read everything, everyday!!! Then after all the hugging and kissing, Lewis drags Amber away from us, because her father, Grandpa Mitch isn't feeling well and they must check on him. Thus, this brings an end to my very, very exciting and adventurous first day in Vegas.

At four in the morning, on my first night, my stomach wakes me and growls. It tells me that it's hungry and needs food!!!!!! There I am, sleeping in the bed next to Grand-maman Jewel and Susan. I truly hope that they don't get to hear my stomach's growls. I'm just utterly mortified!!! I'm fully awake and can't get to calm my body's screams for food!!! I suddenly realize that it's seven in the morning back home in Sudbury. I have breakfast everyday at seven. No kidding my stomach's hungry!!! It's still on eastern time!!! OH MAN!!! I finally get to fall asleep a while later only to be awoken again at seven... This time, I got up, got dressed and prepped up and zoomed for a restaurant...

At the Buffet (by the casino), I get to meet Josh, Randy, Frank, Rob Perkins, Justin, Rob Wilkerson and his wife, Nick, Craig and Jumaane as we all get to serve ourselves to the large and appetizing buffet. Wowow!!! This is an awesome way to start the day!!!

After I get to satisfy my growling stomach, I go back to my room. Grand-maman Jewel is still putting on her face... Hahahaha!!!! If only she knew how beautiful she is...

I must leave you on this note... I'm extremely tired after my weekend of "ski-dooing" out in the Great White and Wild North... I will be back tomorrow with more on Vegas, Grand-maman Buttercup and Niagara Falls...


Hellooooooooo!!!!

This banshee's not kicking so high either... Will this sinus and cold madness ever end!!!?

Amber (Mom Bublé) has been sick as well after being home from Vegas...

I don't know but I think there's something about the Vegas air... Anyway... Let's hope it will be over soon.

Grand-maman Buttercup... I hope you read you PM's. I'm sorry that I passed this awful bug to you... I know that I'm responsible for this cold of yours and Dean's... I'M SORRY!!!!!!!! I love you!!!

Okay, here's the third part to my Vegas experience. I know I'm almost a month behind but better late than never... So here it is!!!

First, I forgot to mention something in my first Vegas essay... I must give thanks to Melanie D and Marie-Christine for lending me their small canadian flag for the time I was in Vegas. I truly believe that it brought me all the luck that I got in Vegas...

My second day in Vegas was just as exciting as the first one... After my glorious breakfast (meeting the boys from the band), I got to meet my dear sweet Grand-maman Buttercup (Swooninggrany) with my dear sweet Grand-maman Jewel (Irene Hope) and her daughter Susan. Finally the Wild Banshees were to meet for the first time ever. Let me tell you it was quite funny and wild!!! After calling Grand-maman Buttercup from the phone in the lobby, Grand-maman Jewel, Susan and I go up on the 19th floor to room 1961... We are all super excited!!! We knock on the door and wait anxiously for it to open. Dean opens the door only to be followed by Grand-maman Buttercup. Still at the door we hug and kiss and laugh and scream so much we are sooooo happy to see each other. Grand-maman Buttercup is a tiny beautiful woman who's all smile and... hyperventilating!!! So much so that she brings her hand to her mouth only to realize that she's still holding on to underpants!!! Yes!!! That's right!!! As we knocked on the door she's putting her clothes in drawers so in the excitement of the moment she held on to some underpants... It was soooooo funny!!!! Here we are meeting for the first time and we are laughing soooooo hard that we all have stomach cramps and tears in our eyes... To precious to ever forget this moment!!! Grand-maman Buttercup you certainly know how to make us all laugh and smile with our hearts!!! I love you my dear teddy bear!!! She then proceeds to show us her false teeth, her stilettos and all the props that she brought for the Bublé show in Vegas. Hahahahaha!!! We all had quite a good laugh out of that one!!! Thanks Grand-maman Buttercup for giving me you stilettos. Posted Image I miss you!!! I look at your pictures everyday!!!

Shortly thereafter, on that afternoon, we all (Grand-maman Jewel, Susan, Grand-maman Buttercup, Dean and I) met with Shelley at the mexican restaurant, the Margarita Grille. Finally, I was meeting dear Shelley. She is such a wonderful person. She's as beautiful in person as she writes. She's spunky and funny!!! She's also a very classy lady!!!

I got to spend most of my time with her and Melanie D and MC. On Sunday night, we had supper at the beautiful Italian restaurant (I forgot the name), but the food is to die for!!! Succulent and decadent!!! The waiters at the restaurant couldn't resist to 4 beautiful young women... Posted Image Hahahahaha!!! We had quite some flirty fun with them... On Monday and Tuesday, I also got to visit the "Strip" with them as well as shopping. At some point we pretend to be Cancan girls and dance down some stairs and start to sing some Bublé tunes... With all that fun, I'm thirsty so I get myself a Vanilla Frappucino from the Starbucks at Harrah's. I tell the girls to keep their eyes open for MB since I'm about to drink a Frappucino. Alas, nothing happens. No magic trick. This Starbucks commercial is full of baloney!!! Yeah right!!! Michael Bublé appears when you drink a Frappucino!! Full of baloney!!! I'm so disappointed!!! Posted Image Anyway, we head out to the monorail to get back to the Hilton. As we get there, who do we see??? JUSTIN RAY!!! Melanie D and MC are flabbergasted!!! They look at me and my Frappucino and they both say: It's the second time it happens!!!! I'm like what do you mean??? Remember in Niagara Falls!!? You opened a Vanilla Frappucino and Justin appeared. Now it's my turn to be stunned. That is sooooo right!!! Both time I opened a Vanilla Frappucino, Justin Ray appeared!!! We are all laughing and Justin's kinda looking at us in a funny way. As we get in the monorail, I tell him about the Vanilla Frappucino and his appearances. I also tell him that he's no MB but that I would certainly settle for him. Justin is such a good sport... He laughed and joined in our joke. When the monorail got moving, we all were startled and almost fell to the floor. Thank goodness for that pole... Right Shelley!!? Hahahahahaha!!! In front of Justin, we started our little pole dance... Hahahahaha!!!! I got to have an interesting chat with Justin. We all laughed and had a great ride back to the hotel. Shelley, I miss you terribly!!! I'm sooooo thankful that we got to meet and spend so much time together. I had a terrific time with you, Mel D and MC. Looking forward to many many more!!! You are a gem!!!

On my second night, I'm standing in line for the "Standing Room Only" Tix. I get to meet Amber, Grandpa Mitch, Grandma Yolanda, Brandee, Rob, Crystal and Lanny once more. Shelley and I give Amber our roses and get to take pictures with them. Melanie D and MC are there as well. I get to introduce Amber to Grand-maman Buttercup. That moment is etched in my memory. I still see Grand-maman Buttercup with her mouth wide open, hyperventilating and sweetly crying as she gets to meet and hug beautiful Amber, graceful Grandma Yolanda and handsome Grandpa Mitch. I will never forget!!! As all this is happening, Dean is videotaping the whole time. Dean is so sweet and giving!! Dean, you are a sweetheart!!!! I LOVE YOU!!! Grand-maman Buttercup, I'm sooooo happy that you got to meet them. You certainly deserve it!!!

After all this excitement, I get back in line and hear a man say that he has an extra ticket for sale. I don't respond. As he goes down the line, I get more and more curious. I go to him and ask him where the seat is. He tells me second row dead center. I'm shocked!!! I don't even dare ask him for the price. As I leave him, he says: why don't you ask me for the price?? I said: I don't even dare to ask. He says: I'm only asking what I paid for them. 200$. I said: Are you kidding?? 200$ That's all?? I was expecting something like 800$ to a 1000$!!! I decide to buy it and get to see Michael's show from second row dead center on the second night!!! I couldn't believe my luck!!!

On the third night, I had a floor ticket in row O (that I purchased off Noelle on Saturday afternoon). Thanks Noelle for believing and waiting out for me. I'm thankful to have met you and your husband. I hope you all had a great time!!!

As we are getting ready for the Sunday show, I meet Che, her traveling fried and Tina in the hotel lobby. Poor Che!!! She looked soooooo tired and pooped!!! So grateful to have finally met you!!! You are so sweet and generous!!! Thanks for the Bublé pin and the pen. Thank you for the time you invested in organizing the meeting on Monday. Thanks to you I got to meet Sam, Anu, and many more beautiful people. Do you have the pix of that night??? Can you please send them to me?? BTW... The lime candies are delicious!!! Thanks a bunch!!! You are a terrific person!!!

Before the show, I get to chat with Melanie D and MC in front. They can't sit still and tell me that they overheard the couple behind her (second row right) say that they had an extra ticket. I ask Mel and MC to confirm and find out how much they want for the ticket. They are too shy so I decide to find out. So imagine this... I'm deaf so the following line will certainly make you laugh. I go to the woman and tell her this: I couldn't help "overhear" (remember I'm deaf!!!) that you have an extra ticket on your hands. How much do you want for it??? The woman tells me she doesn't know so she tells her husband that I'm interest in buying the ticket. He looks at me in a funny way and says: I don't want money for the ticket!!!! Here you can have it!!!!!!!! I'm utterly shocked!!!!!! I just got my second "freebie" in three days. I realize that I now have two tickets on my hands. I darted out of the concert hall and go straight to Shelley who was still standing by the entrance. I grab her and try to explain to her what had just occured. I give her my ticket (from Noelle) so she gets to see Michael in concert for free. She is just stunned as everyone else is!!!

As I walk back in the concert hall with Mel, I look beside me and realize that David Foster is standing right by me. I'm shocked!!! I can't believe my luck!!! I'm looking at my free ticket and at David Foster beside me!!!(I know it's that canadian flag that Mel and MC lend me!!!) I finally get over the shock, and start talking to David Foster. I tell him how I adore his music and thank him for sharing his talents with us all. He thanks me. I also add that I'm a fellow Canadian. Well!!! Low and behold!!! I had just uttered the magic words!!! David gives a high 5, then proceeds to hug and kiss me!!! I'm frozen in place!!! I couldn't believe it!!! He is so down to earth, so friendly and affectionate!!! Just like a typical Canadian!!! Wowowow!!! Mel is standing beside me with her mouth wide open!!! I tell David that Michael is phenomenal and he jokingly said: I guess he's OK!!! I say: David!!! Shame on you!!! You should be more encouraging of Michael since he's a canadian "treasure"!!! Then David says: Well, OKAY then, Michael's an excellent singer and entertainer!!! I retorted: That's more like it!!! Way to go David!!! David and I both laughed and hugged again. I get to introduce David to Mel and MC as fellow canadians and that just made him very very happy!!! I also get to meet David's friend and she's a very beautiful and nice lady indeed!!! They had a terrific time that night. I kept looking their way since they weren't sitting far from me, and they were laughing at MB's jokes and impersonations and smiled the whole time.

Michael was just phenomenal that night with his Johnny Cash and Elvis impersonations. He was in good shape!!! I must say that my two favorite concerts were Saturday and Sunday. For the most energetic concert, the best instrumental from the guys, Saturday was the best!!! Michael and the band were unbeatable that night!!! For surprises such as the Johnny Cash impersonation and the David Foster appearance, Sunday was the best!!!

For the Valentine's Day concert, I managed to get a floor ticket (Row N) straight from the box office. That night, Michael is obviously sick with a terrible cold. He does a wonderful show and the guys are terrific with the instrumental. I have a terrific view of the stage. When MB starts to sing "Save The Last Dance For Me" I join Mel D, MC and Shelley at the front. It's obviously a very emotional night for Michael and his family. As he sings the last words of "A Song For You", I look at Michael. He seems to be reaching out to his family. They are all standing, holding each other, tears in their eyes and their beautiful smiles are for Michael only. For that one moment as Michael sings the last words, I truly believe that there were only 9 people in that hall: Michael, Amber, Lewis, Grandpa Mitch, Grandma Yolanda, Brandee, Rob, Crystal and Lanny. I swear. They were truly united as a beautiful family in love. That moment truly touched me!! I will never forget it!!!

I truly hope that you enjoy this as much as I have while writing it. I will never forget my trip to Vegas. It was full of surprises, friendships and precious moments that I will keep in my heart forever!!! Thank you all for making it sooooooo special!!! I will be posting my pix soon...

You make me smile with my heart!!! Sending you hugs and kisses ooooooozing with love...

Gram Irene,
Once again, you knocked my socks off. You are the poet laureate of this board. All inspired by the talent and charm of one Michael Buble.

Aren't we all lucky to have found one another!
Take care everyone,

To all you ladies...

Another beautiful day...We get to listen
to Michael Buble'.........
I do have something to say....For this is
my special day....
July 1 1949 My sweetheart and I were wed......Our wows on this day we said....
Such a beautiful union began...He always
was such a good man.....
We believe it all started in heaven.....And the years now number 57.....



It's true....I've been married longer
than most of you have been born......But without
a doubt they have been my best years of all....

When you find your soul- mate you can endure anything and everything.....I remember the day.....I said...."I have the perfect life..
....No one on earth could be happier than me."

And I was...And I did have it all....Until
he was taken from me.....It was at that moment
I had to shut a door that weighed a million tons
.....And there was no way I could do it alone...

There were two comforting arms that came
down upon me....And held me....and are still
holding me....Without that stronghold....I would
have wilted......

I think I want you all to know....We have
someone by our side.....whom we cannot see...
who is there for us.....And will give us that
armor at that moment to remain standing....

Anyway.....I have Michaels Music and
my memories....And I am well taken care of.....
I have a beautiful family.....Who could ask for
more........

I can only hope for you all that you might all have come your way....wonderful and
beautiful things.....

Love ya all!.....Gram...Yo!

How does one reply to all the love and warmth that is flowing from these incredible moving posts???? You all make us feel so wonderful, and you have once again moved me to tears!!!!!
I can't tell you enough, how we are so blessed that through this wonderful music Michael sings, he has brought us such beautiful friends and fans, from all over the world, how cool is that!!!!..... As I have said over and over...... you are all the best there is...... and that is why we love you all so much!!! Yes, I am proud of Michael, as I am of all my children, they are all so special, but I just want you all to know, that I am also proud of all of you, because of that something "special" that you have brought to us...also the energy, love and total support you give to Michael when he is on and off stage, and the way you all have become like a family with each other!!! With this board, and through all of you, I find out what Michael is doing each day, and it brings me closer to him when he is away,(which is always it seems). I love reading about everyones concert stories, reviews, and the funny things that happen to some of you before or after you go to the concerts!!
Anyway, I just felt that I needed to tell you all how we feel, it's the Buble's that want to thank you, because you have no idea how much you have given to us......God Bless you all....take care.....love as always, dear friends......Amber

Gram Irene,
You have such eloquence with your writing. I love your mention of the Banquet Table. Yes all of us bring a little bit of each other to it and whether it be the best of things or the worst we all can relate. I see the meaning in your posts and I agree some are here to lead and some are here to teach, some are here to
learn. One post of yours in particular very recently comes to mind, was about our children and how they make us crazy! but our love is there and we do what we can to get them ready for life. It's a rough road, being moms is a tough job, we told stories about that. Our kids learn from us and we learn from them~~
I get inspired by these posts from you and others as well.
Well, thanks for your post, and I'd like to add
a little something I read:

Happiness keeps you sweet,
Trials keep you strong,
Sorrows keep you human,
Failures keep you humble
success keeps you glowing,
Only God keeps you going~~
Everyone have a great day!! Posted Image

Everything's ready for the party tonight! Can't wait to see you all. My sweet Kiernan made crepes and chocolate sauce for brunch and I picked up fresh fall berries and peaches at the farmers market early and whipped some cream for everyone getting here early enough. Hope my kids don't eat too much before the hot air balloon is visible on the horizon and I can hear the Harley roaring down the street! Can't wait to laugh and love and dance with you all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET MICHAEL!! And happy day to sweet Mom Amber too. You did all the work that day! See you all at the PAR-TAY!

Johanne!

You're back and with such wonderful messages for us, too! How can we put you in the "bad girl chair" when you share such beautiful posts? Posted Image I miss you, too, and look forward to seeing you soon I hope! I'll send your love along to my "dashing" dad and my sweet, sweet mom! Your message about him was hilarious! I'll let him read it!

Irene,
For some reason, calling photos "legal" made me giggle! You're too cute! Now get out of that nightgown and get to the post office! Posted Image

Have a great evening, everyone!
Rita

I had to stop in and tell you what my Ethan said this morning. I should preface by saying that we have had a nasty couple of days. The nastiest part of which is serious plumbing issues. We have this beautiful house that was built in the 20's. It has so much character and charm and we've really worked hard on it, but it is still a really old houseand periodically has really old house problems. Welcome home, Kiernan.

Anyway, this morning when I was trying to get everybody ready to take Ethan to school, he wasn't getting dressed. I asked him (for the 100th time) to please get dressed. Every time he had some random excuse, but this last time he said "I just need to check out some things in the aquarium for a minute first--with a little help from my sweet girl...Mom." I turned around and he was giving me the cheesiest grin he could muster. Just when I thought I was going to have to lose it, he pulled through and made me laugh. I had no idea I was his "sweet girl"! And on top of that he got dressed without being asked again.

Just thought some of you moms might enjoy that. Hope everybody's having a good day.

Hugs,

Dear Irene,
Thank you for your reply! Just read it and it is exactly what I meant. What I wanted to explain in my post was, that I, as a mom, would not wish for my children to have any pain (as I am sure all moms would like to avoid). You just wish they could remain as perfect and kind of pure as they were born! If you know what I mean!
Good that you are feeling a bit better again!!

Amen.....Did we have a partee or what.....
Wendy....You did good Hon....I don't know about
Letting Loretta fly the plane....She got so low
she almost clipped Mt. Timpanogas.....Whew!!!!!

I loved the way Blossom jumped out of the
cake.....WooWee!.....She looked mighty good in
that little skimpy outfit.....The March was good
...The Fireworks were tremendous.....Super!!!!!

But I have to agree the food was outstanding.
But I don't know if I liked the way Loretta
dominated the dance floor.....She was just wanting everyone to see her new Stilettoes....
And she was hobbling to boot....With that sore
toe....Remember she ran over her toe in the
grocery store twice....The same toe....Gracious!

Oh but the food!!!!!.....Yuuuuuum!.......
Do we have to wait another year to do this again
.......Till Michaels birthday next year?...

We'll have to vote on it....In our Council
meeting.....

When I went through American Fork... I cut a corner pretty close and lost a couple of my Baloons.....Dang it!.....Oh well the Fire Works
made up for it.....

You all didn't know I could twirl did you?
Yep!...I was a twirler in our band in High School.....And in those days you stepped pretty
high...."High Steppers"......you were called...

We had food concoctions I never even heard
of......But you know that Wendy......Pretty cool
little Gal!.....And all that you all brought...
Thanks so much.....Even if I didn't know what
it was....It was mega delicious.....

I'm glad you liked my bread....I had hoped there might be one piece that I could have
for tomorrow....Oh well...I have some crumbs home........I have a couple of stale crackers
in the cupboard......[I'm joking}..I just can't
help it....I have a real bad headache ....That
happens when I run out of bread.....{Joking}

I'm even bad at humor.....But sometimes
it gets the best of me.....I've had a huge day
.....It completely does me in riding my Harley.......And then the emotional trauma with
seeing all of you.....I now need my nap.....I
usually have a nice piece of Homemade bread toast before I tuck myself in....But not this
night....Be strong Gram.....No bread left....

That was 7 paragraphs before my humor
kicked in.....Sorry.....

I'm sad that it is all over.....It was so good that we got to see each other.....Hang in
there all of you.....Get to bed early Loretta...
All that crazy business flying your plane.....It
might be a good idea for you to have a couple of
flying lessons.....Hmmmmm!

We'll all rest and then start in again
maybe tomorrow.....

It was such a delightful day.....And I hope
it was as rewarding for you as it was for me...

The ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz's are starting
to demand my attention......Till later...

Gram...Yo!

Cristina....Lynne....Mouse.....

I am at a loss at your generosity....And
your kindness....And also have a lump in my throat.....My contribution to this thread has only been words.....

The real power from this thread is all
of you and your love that you have given so freely.....There is power in numbers.....And so
many of you have added your signature to the love that goes out from this little thread....

When Love is given....It goes directly
to the heart....And there is nothing more power-ful on earth.....The heavens have opened up and
showered this little family with love that has
been signed sealed and delivered by all of you..
.........

I can never thank you enough...never....

Just me Gram......

Andrea,
How cute is that! Don't you just marvel at little boys? I have three and they never cease to leave me in stitches on the floor. They are such unique little creatures especially when testosterone gets the best of them.
Your little man reminds me a lot of my 6yr old Kolby. Every once in a while he'll just let out a yell and start running around like a power ranger! I LOVE IT!!
Thanx for sharing!
Aly

GOOD MORNING TO ALL
WHILE DRIVING ON THE ROAD OF LIFE WE COME ACROSS POT HOLES, SOME ARE SMALL AND YOU ONLY FEEL A SLIGHT THUMP, OTHERS ARE SO BIG YOU THINK YOUR CAR WILL SHAKE APART, YET, IT STAYS WHOLE AND WE KEEP GOING. WHAT KEEPS US GOING?? FOR ME, IT'S LOVE. GIVING AND RECIEVING LOVE. LOOKING OVER THE MANY YEARS OF MY LIFE, THE TIMES I FELT , I CAN'T GO ON, I'M AT THE BREAKING POINT, I EVEN ARGUED WITH GOD TELLING HIM WHAT WAS BEST FOR ME, I SURE LOST THAT AGUMENT. MY INNER SPIRIT SAVED ME. GOD GAVE ME MY INNER SPIRIT ALL I HAD TO DO WAS OPEN IT, WHY IT TOOK ME YEARS TO FIND, OPEN AND USE IT, I HAD TO LEARN THE HARD WAY. I HOPE EVERYONES ROAD HAS SMALL POT HOLES, THOSE THUMPS WAKE US UP. HUGE HUGS, LORETTA SMILING AT YOU.

Bonjour Grand-maman Loretta!!!

You are a real teddy bear!!! I looked out for your TLC bubbles and saw them too!!!

Thanks for caring!!! I missed you too!!!

To reassure you, I never use my car on business trips. It's always rentals. Rest assured they all have winter tires on. By the way, I drove a Montana on this trip so I was safe. Had no problems driving on the roads and highways with that one.

HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER!!!!

LOL,
Oohanne
