Hi Lisha,
By golly it's 12:36 a.m.... so yep...I'm now 60! Feels like I've been in my 50's for ever! ha! No big plans, just having the boys and grandkids over this weekend for a fish fry. Hope your nerves are all settled for your trip to Florida. I'll have you in my prayers the whole time your gone, and be sure to check in since you have a laptop. Me too...now!..ha!
Love...Sue

Hi Sue,
Sounds like your going to have a great weekend. I have never been to a fish fry. Maybe someday. How many grandkids do you have. I have three, from my oldest daughter.
I am feeling a little less stressed about the trip. All I have to do is pack..LOL Good thing I didn't put away the summer clothes.
Happy Birthday.
Enjoy your new laptop..
Lisha

I hope you have a wonderful birthday and all of your wishes come true. Sounds like you have some plans and I hope you enjoy yourself. Sorry to say that you'll have to pull yourself away from that new laptop when the kids come, but when everyone goes home.....lol. Good wishes for a successful year ahead. Mary

Thanks..Vinny, Mary and Lisha...

Vinny...ha! Wish I felt like I did when I was 40! Hmmmm I heard 60 "IS" the new 40...ha!

Mary... The laptop is awesome, but man oh man..teaching an old dog new tricks is a challenge, but I'm up for it!

Lisha...We have 2 grandkids from our oldest son Charley ..Chelsie is 20 and Charley jr is 19. I also have a new one on the way with my youngest son Josh and his wife...it is due to arrive the 2nd week in May.."YES"! Love, love love the grandkids and the joy they bring. Chelsie is teaching me all about my new laptop...I just wish she would take it slower and quit expecting me to understand whats she's doing. She learned how to use a computer before she was 5. Enjoy your trip and r-e-l-a-x!
Love to you all...Sue

Sue,
Your beautiful without make up I'm sure. Actually, during chemo my skin wouldn't tolerate anything but moisturizers, and lots of that. Didn't need blush as chemo left my face very pink. My eyes teared so much that eye makeup was out of the question.
Have a huge piece of cake for all of us here.
Leslie

Hi Leslie,
Funny..my face also gets extra dry since chemo, but so far the few times..(very few) that I put on make-up it doesn't irritate my eyes or skin. I only wear it if we go somewhere and on chemo days at the clinic. Cute story...back 30 years ago when I was driving school bus back in Illinois, I didn't wear make-up one morning and when one of my kindergarteners climbed on board, she looked at me and said.."Mr's Sue...you forgot to wear your glasses..how will you see to drive?"...ha! I didn't even wear glasses at the time! Kids knowtice everything! It's pie for desert..I'm baking a big glazed apple pie...need to use up my remaining apples before they go bad. Sue

Hi Sue,
Right now I am laughing out loud. Too FUNNY. Love it. You just made my day and it's not really my day, but yours. LOL
Thanks for reminding me about your grandkids. As soon as I read that I said, Oh Lisha your losing your mind. You had already told me when I asked you before. Cancer brain and age don't mix well....Sigh.
Anyway, Happy Happy Birthday. Your a wonderful amazing woman...
Lisha

Hi Sue,

I just posted to you on another thread, but wanted to add my best birthday wishes in this thread also!

Thanks for your wonderful posts and congratulations on your new computer!
And someday I would like to meet Hubby - sounds like I would like him - as crazy as me maybe. If Mimi-Warrior reads about him, she'll be jealous because so much of our life's antics have been put on hold with the cancer. (But your Hubby story has been an inspiration, so I'm going to find some antics of my own! - Different picture, I'm sure:)

Anyway, fish fry with the family - what could be better for #60? (We have that in common.) And you know what - yesterday we became grandparents for the 3rd time! Our new granddaughter Ellie was born (via C-section) yesterday afternoon and at over 9 pounds, dark hair, big feet and wide open blue eyes - she is BEAUTIFUL!

So much for us to look forward to. Stay the course, Sue!
Happy Birthday.
Tom

So cool Tom! 9 pounds!!!! Wow...my oldest weighed 4.6 full term and my youngest weighed 5.4 and came a month early. I can't imagine having a 9 pounder! I love the name Ellie. I hope she lives close by so you can kiss all her little toes and enjoy that sweet new baby smell!
Have a great weekend...Sue

Congratulations Tom and Mimi on your beautiful new grandbaby. There is no joy like that of a brand new baby. Makes life that much more enjoyable. You'll need to post a picture for all of us to enjoy.
Blessings,
Leslie

To you and your family. What a happy tome for you. My daughter had twin girls in May, shortly after I finished my final treatment(I had 6 rounds of R CHOP and then the Zevalin). What a gift they have been and a reminder that life goes on and I need to be here for it. Again congrats Mary

Wow, 9 lbs. I'm sure momma was happy with the c-section. Congratulations on a healthy little girl. What a beautiful name.

Hi Sue - just read it was your birthday 2 days ago - happy belated birthday! 60 - you're just a child - for me that was 7 years ago. I grew up in the mountains of WV but my Grandmother lived in Gainesville, FL. We came to visit every April for 2 weeks and went to High Springs each visit for the most wonderful fish fry on the Swannee River - I can still remember those wonderful times! My Uncle fried fish outside the "camp", his wife made coleslaw and hush puppies inside, and Rum Cake for dessert - good eating. What kind of fish did you use in WA for your birthday fry? Fran

Hi Fran,
We cooked salmon on cedar board on the barbecue and also deep fried beer battered bass. We do the majority of our fishing for salmon and steelhead,but when hubby doesn't want to drive to the river which is about 2 hours from home, he drives right outside of town to some wonderful bass ponds. Our youngest son has a guide service on the side of his full time job, so our freezers are always stocked with fish. Steve cans fish, smokes it, and then of course we grill it. Our oldest son worked 12 years on an Alaskan fishing boat out in the Bering Sea, so we always had a ton of fish when he came home from fishing. He finally quit that job after a scary experience last winter and is now a union roofer here locally. I had to dye my hair with all the gray hairs of worrying about him fishing the Bering Sea in the dead of winter. Sooo glad I don't have to go through another winter worrying about loosing him!! Anyways..got carried away, but it gives you an idea of why we are always cooking fish, or fishing. We give away so much fish because it's so plentiful with all of us being such avid fishermen. Love...Sue
