THIS WEEK'S THREADS

12-16-02 Christmas Is...FReeper Memories

Opinions by our own 'King of Ping'
The guy's good, folks!

Thanks, Mixer!

1) Click on the graphic to open the Calendar.
2) Once there you can click on any month and even click to the right to go into next year. Once you are in the month that you joined FR you will need to click on the number in the calendar and then an add item screen will come up.
3) In the next box enter your name in the "Calendar Text" field and then click on submit.
4) If any of the screens fail to load simply click on refresh in your browser and that will usually fix it.
5) If all else fails or simply if you want me to do this for you send me an FReepmail and I will gladly do it for you. ~Mixer

Fantastic thread this morning, Billie. It was awfully slow to load, the curse of rural landline connections. So glad I got to see it before it gets so loaded up that I can't endure the wait to see it.

Have a fine day. And thanx to you for all you do.

Billie, once I stop tearing up and can see the computer more clearly again, I want another look! I was fine until I got to the "Angels" part....brought back memories of my Cookie and Ralph.

You did a SUPERB job....THANK-YOU!!!!! I know it was a "labor of love."

Sistahs: {{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}

loddie: I'll be at that very Boca Raton spot on Saturday. We're leaving Atlanta by car in 3 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes!

MnM: Did you hear from Ming?

Everyone: Thank-you for your get-well wishes. I'm going to slink back to w-o-r-k, prop myself up and try to get some things done before I go home to FL on Saturday.

{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} to you all - St.Louie1 - yours did the trick yesterday! :-)

MnM: Did you hear from Ming?

Yes I did, thanks ! When I tried to call her last Friday, she was not there. I "talked" to her sister, who speaks almost no English, and my Chinese is VERY limited as well. Ming, knowing that I would try to call shortly after she got to her home in Shenyang, made sure her sister used the word "tomorrow" when I called. That's what I needed to know. So I called Ming and talked to her Saturday. She had a good and uneventful, and safe, trip and was enjoying her visit with family and friends.

She'll be returning on January 2nd. I'll be glad to see her when she gets back home....

This is a great idea for a thread! *S* So much so that my parents' dog, Shag, decided to stop by:

He's 4 yrs old and tops the scales at a whopping 125lbs. Most spoiled rotten dog I've ever seen. *L* His hobbies are chasing the occasional rabbit or deer and tearing a 3ft rope bone to shreds in mere hours. His weakness? Storms. He hates them.

GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY!!!

I'm trying to catch up on yesterday's thread. There are some beautiful stories, along with some funny ones, What a great thread!

I'm sorry I missed it, but I was off line and am not hooked up yet so I can only get on FR at work. :^(

I don't know when I'll get hooked back up, I hopr before Christmas (But I somehow doubt it) My brother-in-law is trying to find out how to hook up the internet dialup modem and the phone into the only phone jack I have in the new place.

That's the really only compliant I have about the place. I can't get used to the fact that I have so much more room now! :^)

perhaps I'll find things to fill up the empty spaces, LOL!!

Now for this thread!

The pets are terriffic! I love to see and hear storise about the pets of different freepers.

Though I cried reading about the pets who are in doggie and kitty heaven.

((HUGS)) TO EVERYONE!!

seeya!

I was diddling with words this morning for our little furry friends. Came up with FReepups and FReekits, but that didn't sound too good, hah.

Maybe FReepets? I think I have too much time on my hands, LOL.

At any rate, what a pleasure to view all these charming darlings, large and small. They all seem happy to be in good Freeper homes. What a great thread!

Good morning, and thank you for that wonderful compliment,IG. I know about slow loading - I have a dialup connection, too. Know it's always a thread heavy with graphics...which is why I set my preferences to 20 posts per page. It helps a lot!

:) The contest where I still try to get you to give me your snail-mail address so we can mail you a cookbook. Muddy, make Loddy give me his address!

Mudboy Slim and I are done guest-hosting for the month. It's fun, perhaps a little on the silly side, we recognize, for a thread designed to applaud our finest, but that's all the time we have. It's exhausting!! (Plus, if you get 20 entries and announce 3 winners, there's 17 people who you've got to avoid for 3 weeks. ROFL. Not really, everyone's been a good sport.)

Everyone should try guest-hosting. I learned first hand how much work our hostesses put into what they do. I have absolutely renewed respect for their gift to all of us.

I missed out out posting a picture and me and my cat so when I get later I will post a link so you can see her. She is actually the next door neighbor's cat but she spends so much time at our place that we call her our own. We also refer to her as a he because the daughters named her "Mr Bojangles" and you thought I was mixed-up?
