Thanks to all that commented on Flossie Mae, she sure is a stinker. When I rub her belly, she takes her paw and combs my hair. I guess that is her way of thanking me.
Some have mentioned my new banner, I personally was touched by breast cancer on Sat. Oct 4th. A friend of 26 years, lost her battle with this ravaging disease, and as they say, these people are the most courageous women of the world. She battled for around 5 years.
Then there is a joyful story to tell you about, another long time friend, Melonie, is celebrating her 5th year cancer free, just this month.
Also, there is Debbie, Marilyn, Brenda, Sandra, & Gwen, all survivors, that I am close to that lives with the daily fear that it might reoccur. I have seen first hand how it affects the loved ones of the ones affected with this disease, dealing with their spouses, sisters, daughters & mother's illnesses and the helplessness that they must feel. Please have your mammograms, and keep the ones battling, the survivors and the families of the victims in your prayers.
Last week I posted little toppers for some Halloween treat bags. Karen mentioned that I should do the same with trail mix. So over the weekend I bought all the stuff I like in my "Gorp" or trail mix, or what ever your family may call it. I made mine with raisins, dried cherries, almonds, dried pineapple, dried apricots, peanuts, dates, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and sunflower and pumpkin seeds. And yes I have eaten enough of it to make me sick. It is one of those things you think you have to eat, every time you see it. Thanks Karen, for the inspiration and the 5 pounds. *wink*wink*
