Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

That's a praise for your eyes, Tiff! Sorry about your health issues though. I know how difficult that is. Shann, yay on the puppy! :superhappy You decided against Pherb or Ferb? :P I have a family reunion on Saturday which should be fun, but tiring. With this week and the next few I will have gone o...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Tiffie, I'm sorry your boss and some of your family are giving you a hard time. Sounds like life in general is going better, though, and I'm happy for you. Bird is going to be a bird... sounds almost normal, but they need to come up with a better name for you condition it sounds odd. Like you have a...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Well, it is your heart with God that is important. As for how I see it, which doesn't matter much in the eturnal view, it seems more the changing of what God intended, from the natural to what seems un-natural. But like I said, that is seeing with my eyes and understanding, the Lord views the heart...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi Everyone, sorry it is sad news that brings me back to this thread. I miss you all. Life has been hard for me lately with a lot of stress with my own poor health, my mom's cancer, a sister's marriage issues, and some other things. I was pretty close to Jay, so this has been hard on top of everythi...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been gone so long. I do miss you all. Looks like some new people have joined the group. I'm glad. I'm still really struggling with my health. I had a few good weeks last month and was tolerating outings a little better but then had a few too many doctor appointments and famil...

Re: Be a Better Writer -- FANTASY

Great articles, Jan, both here and the sci-fi one. I wonder where the line is between just fiction and fantasy. I've written a couple of stories where I made up the culture and the names, but nothing in it was incompatible with our real world (such as "The Bridge Between the People" ). Is that just ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I'm praying you get the job, Leah! Glad everyone is talkative and that we have a couple new people popping in. I'm still pretty sick and not able to do much. But I started a new treatment this weekend, so who knows, maybe it'll help. My boyfriend is so sick he can hardly even talk. :-( Scary to see ...

Re: Be a Better Writer--TELL, DON'T SHOW? WHAT?

Hi - This time I have something to contribute. Shann recommended a great book to me by Amy Michelle Wiley - 'Bring Your Writing to Life'.I'd recommend it too. Amy is great at explaining how to show/not tell. It is helpful. My problem is that it's far easier said than done! Trudy I've heard that Amy...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hey everyone. It looks like we have a couple new faces since I've been on last. I miss you all, but am so sick it's hard to keep up with much of anything. My health has continued to fail and now I'm mostly homebound and not able to do much at home either. But I saw my specialist back east a couple w...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hey guys, Happy Thanksgiving! Even though I haven't been around as much, I'm very thankful for all of you. Good to see some of the oldies popping back in again. :-D Leah, I think we've talked about this before, but why did you decide not to get a flu shot? I haven't had one for many years because I'...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi everyone! So sorry I've been gone for so long. Thanks for those who have checked up on me and let me know you're all missing me. :-) I'm still particularly struggling with my health, so between that and dating, it's hard to keep up with anything extra. Texting is the easiest way for me to keep in...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I'm home now. The flight went pretty well but I didn't sleep well and not feeling great today, but wasn't really expecting to, either. It was hard to leave Andy, but good to see my family. My layover was in Minneapolis and the terminal shocked me. The waiting area was full of little individual table...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Hi Everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes, Shann. Starting right after my last birthday, this year I've been sicker than I ever have been for that long of a period, I think, and I just keep getting less functional. So it's been hard in a lot of ways. In the past no matter how sick I was I still ha...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I've been really wanting a sunset on the creek picture too, but the sun doesn't set over the creek, so yeah... We're gonna try to go out on the kayaks soon, so hopefully can get some pics of that. It's been years since I've been in a boat and I have particularly weak shoulders and arms, so we'll see...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Chrissy! I missed that you were back when I popped in before. Welcome back. I was gonna pretend I didn't remember you, but since Pup already said I lived with you for a month, I figured no one would buy that joke anyway. ;) Shann has been having trouble keeping her IV in for the meds, so that hasn't...
