Of course, some of us might also like to hold hands
and share laughter with a boyfriend...

Thank you, Cardhu. The presentation was very interesting. I love cheese. In fact, I don’t think my family would survive without some kind of cheese.

Thank you for these PP Presentations.

Thank you, yorkie, she is a little sweetie, wears that smile all the time. Its wonderful to have a little one like her around occasionally. Those pics were made Sunday! I need a lot of experience with the camera and downloading them to the computer and then posting. (I get tense when I do all that and it makes my back kill me).

Ever since I saw the pie recipe and pic, I have been craving something sweet. Had to run out just now for a few minutes and I stopped at Sonic and got a chocolate sundae...shame on me! Wish you had one!

Thank you, jaycee. I really have fun making Amy's Welcome graphics. Lori and I get to do a LOT of them, since there's a new one every single day, but we still have the easy part - Amy is a hard worker and the best coordinator! What she does every day is so much more demanding than dreaming up creative welcome graphics.

Good afternoon, Derllak.

FReepers are the nicest people. I have made several life time friendships.
I treasure my memories of the times spent with those FReeper FRiends.

Have a wonderful Day.

Well, it looked like you coordinated your umbrella graphic just to match the opening! (Yesterday, OESY's first post did the same thing!)

Glad you got rain - we need it so bad I get excited when it just 'sprinkles'!

You can say that again. Amy works very, very hard and does a great job. Everyone loves her. We do appreciate your and Lori's Welcome Graphics daily....they are outstanding!

She is a cutie. When my granddaughter was getting married, I told her I wasn’t old enough to be a great grandmother and she said ‘well, you’re going to be’. LOL~~~ Well, we just have more family to love now!

My pleasure! It’s actually more fun (easier, too!) to do the graphic and THEN find a poem to fit it than to do a graphic to fit the poem.

In ‘91 I had to make a trip to the NATO repair depot in Luxembourg and I caught the plane back to the U.S. in Amsterdam. I got one of those round, flat ~~ what we used to call a hoop except these are more like a cushion ~~ blocks of gouda (pronounced houda) at the duty free store in the Amsterdam terminal.

I was concerned because I had heard that some U.S. customs officials would say that you couldn’t bring the cheese into the country then take your cheese and keep it for themselves. I was resolved to, should that occur, eat as much as I could hold and throw the rest in the garbage can.

The plane was 2 hours late leaving Amsterdam due to equipment problems. We sat on the plane for at least an hour before we had to get off and board another plane. That put us into Atlanta after 10 PM and I had no problem getting my hoop of cheese through customs. Not sure if I would have had a problem with the day crew or not.

Anyway the cheese was excellent.
