Hi, Liz.

I hope all is well with you and yours. I don't visit iVillage all that often but I wanted to be sure to visit your board and say hello and Merry Christmas or Happy Chanukah or Blessed "whatever" you celebrate.

All is as wel here ... no complaints. I think everyone knows we lost our Sweet Gemma a few years ago at age 17. We lost our Miss Rosie Bow last January at almost 17. We now have just one little canine ... Miss Cricket who is almost 15 and doing quite well for a member of the geriatric set.

After 8 1/2 years I still enjoy being retired. My DH is working a reduced schedule and will probably cut back even more after the first of the year.

Joy of joys!

Dear Francine, I think of you so often! What a wonderful surprise for you to drop in and update me of your life. I'm so sorry you've lost some of your fur friends, for that is so hard to do! I had to put down one of mine last August when her breast cancer worsened and there was just no hope. They become members of our family, and we grieve when it is time for them to go....

I am thrilled to death that you are going to be gramma for the first time! How you have hoped for the day it will happen! There's just nothing in the world like holding your grandchild in your arms, then watching as they grow and the first time they call you 'gamma, nanna' or their own unique word for 'gramma'! I can see why you are in seventh heaven, both you and DH. CONGRATULATIONS!

I've been doing quite well and have little to complain about, even though a lot is going on around me. I'll email you a little later and catch you up on what's going on with me, as some stuff just isn't posted on a message board....

Thank you for taking the time to come visit me! It was so good to hear from you and to learn how life is treating you. I'll write you real soon, and I'm sure I still have your address! Hugest HUGGS....
