OK... I was asked by Evelyn to post this for her. She is having difficulty copy pasting with her new iPad she is using temporarily in Texas.
I just got notice Evelyn has joined our little group.....WELCOME !!!!
Jimmy has kept us up to date on your treatment progress and we're so very happy you are feeling up to joining in the fun.
I have to tell you, the pictures Jimmy shared reminded me of so many things I have not made in a long time...perfect ideas to make and take to the "patio parties" I'll be attending when I get back to our villa in the fall. I've made a mental note but will probably ask for your ideas again as the time gets closer.
So glad to have you here, Evelyn !
It is hard for me to help her, because I don't have an iPad. The kids may know, so for now, until she gets it straightened out, I am posting this under my Name..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hello Cooking Friends,
Just a little note to (re)introduce myself....I was ERead on the Cooking.com forum...a retired teacher of 34 years all in first grade! I loved it!
Uncle Jimmy (and his wife, Tina) and I have been email friends for a couple of years now. I have adopted him as my little brother since I lost my only sibling, Walter, on Oct. 1, 1999 of the same lung cancer that I am fighting. He smoked, I never did. Jimmy has helped me with suggestions for fixing things at home just as Walter did!
Anyway, I have been spending most of my computer time researching medical info since Feb. 2009 when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 and wasn't able to visit Cooking.com. I do remember the names of the former members in this new forum and just became the newest member. I am from Long Island, NY but am staying with my "niece" in TX where I have come for chemo. On Tuesday, I begin my second cycle of six planned but, except for feeling tired, I am in high spirits and feeling well! My niece is an excellent nurse so I am being well taken care of!
Jimmy has posted some of the foods I have prepared while staying here. Suz and Louie have threatened to keep me here forever! They and their two small dogs ( the dogs have chosen to sleep with ME!!!!) have made me feel right at home. I have been in TX since May 13 and am not the least bit homesick!
I remember a program years ago...Life Begins at 80. Well, for me, Life Begins at 71! I made my first airplane flight, got my first cell phone (I did have a Tracfone), my first iPad, my first debit card, my first trip to Texas, my first chemo.... In my head I am still a sharp and witty 21 but, with a degenerative spine and a walker to get around, I am stuck in the body of someone 124! LOL!
I am looking forward to having you for my cooking friend...a great name for this forum!
