Grab Bag / Second Annual WWU Imaginary Holiday Cruise
« on: December 09, 2013, 10:00:58 AM »
LC - Thank you for reminding us on another thread that it's time to get out our suitcases and start packing for our Second Annual WWU Cruise!

OK...I'm getting a suite with a private deck again because that worked out so well last year. I am definitely a 'social-recluse' for lack of a better term. The diet I went on yesterday has me back to a perfect size six overnight and so I'm off to the Web to shop for cute clothes. I've asked the Captain to be sure he remembers to bring back some of those guys who danced like a dream and to put together that high-calorie-no-problem menu for us that worked so well last year.

Who's going to join me?

Daughter in Laws and/or Son in Laws / New Picture
« on: November 29, 2013, 07:46:44 PM »
This picture of me with my "ex"-DIL was taken yesterday. I've mentioned her before. We decided not to get divorced in the 1980s when she and my son didn't make it. On Thanksgiving Day she drove over an icy, mountain pass to be with me at my retirement home because I find that large gatherings, even my own family really tire me. I just love her to pieces!

I am mandogirl55. I am new to this site and so thankful to have found it today-all the posts have helped me to know I am not the only mom out there whose adult children disrespect her.

Grab Bag / It's Our Webmaster's Birthday!
« on: July 12, 2013, 01:43:47 PM »
Today is my youngest son's, 58th birthday!! Thank you, Kirk, for Webmastering us! Love you hugely, Mom ! :D :D :D

Three years ago today our Webmaster, DS Kirk, launched www.WiseWomenUnite.com My deep thanks to each and every one of you for your contributions here. Without you, it would be an empty page. And I especially want to thank you for letting me be your cyber-mom!  :D

In honor of this occasion Kirk has restored the "edit post" feature, as requested! And he is working on LC's idea for a new category under Resources: "Needing To Vent And Be Heard. There are times for most of us when we don't need advice or simply aren't ready for it. We want to share what we are holding in and have that be OK. Just knowing that someone is listening, has "been there' and understands can sometimes make all the difference."

Sending love...

Grab Bag / Having A Bad Day
« on: May 09, 2013, 07:03:23 PM »
If I had thought of it…I would have created a "Bad Day" category on this Forum because we all have them and we need each other when that happens. So, I hope this thread will be a kind of Welcome Mat that's out for us at those times. Thanks, LC, for the idea.  :)

My bad day is being sick and having to go on antibiotics after my 5 day vacation with DS in California last week. I have COPD and my guess is that it's from the recirculated air on the plane. There was also air pollution north of L.A. (Ventura) where we stayed plus a 6,000 acre wild fire close by and smoke.  :(

Kirk VandenBerghe here, Luise Volta's son. She asked me to send you all her warm greetings from Ventura, California. She's having a wonderful time at her workshop and thought you might enjoy the attached picture.

Grab Bag / Washington "Wilderness"
« on: January 25, 2013, 08:30:05 PM »
My little, ground floor studio HUD unit in the woods is 440 sq ft. My happiest childhood memories are of our summers…spent in our log cabin in the Huron National Forest near Sand Lake, in Michigan. This little spot of mine with windows on one side only is decorated in "Early Log Cabin." LOL! The paintings and prints are of wild life and even wilder scenery. All three walls have drift wood "sculpture" hanging there…"originals" created by Nature. Today I ordered a floor lamp that has two bears climbing up it. I deserve this. It makes me happy.  ;D
