Thanks to a dear friend of mine here on Gather, I learned about Chuck's "farewell" post......I was sad to read it but knew it was coming for quite awhile.......it's really sad that Gather's pretty much gone.....I will miss the many dear friends I've made here through the years......we will all just have to move over to Facebook!!!!!!!
My e-mail address is: NDaven3965@aol.com.......so hope to stay in touch with a number of my Gather friends. I'd surely hate to lose touch! I've been, slowly, deleting my photos and posts on here.......I deleted our beloved Puddles' photos first, as I didn't want them to be "taken," and am slowly getting rid of the others....never realized what a lengthy process it is!
We are well and happy here.....life is full of many wonderful things.......our DeeOGee boy is getting soooo big and oh my, he's in to everything! He got ahold of hubby's wire rimmed glasses and manged them to death....LOL! He also loves to steal the t.v. remove and play "keep away" from his dad....one day he managed to get the remote outdoors in the snow.....geesh! I've tons of adorable photos....too bad I can't share here, maybe over at Facebook! At 7 months, he weighs about 65 lbs. (This is what Puddles weighed when she died at 6 1/2 years........just unreal!)......this pup is just huge and almost white in color.....no more "Golden Doodle!"
I'm thinking of hopping an Amtrak train this summer and head out to Oregon to visit my favorite 90 year old cousin.....we've gotten back in touch and talk at least once a week by phone.
I'm now collecting dolls......found some of my "old" dolls....Barbies, Tiny Tears, Betsy McCall, Toni, Revlon and Terri Lee so have decided to buy a bunch so have been living over at eBay and on Amazon.com and Etsy.........Even bought an oak case to hang on the wall to hold the dolls so can't wait to get it. Still playing around with my cameras and photography and finally getting started on my Alaska scrapbooking.......no time for boredome around here!
Anyhow, good luck to you all here, and hope many of you will stay in touch!!
