Whew! I'm exhausted, but it's a good thing. Spent the night at our local Relay with my little team that could. We walked over 99 miles as a team and raised (so far!)over $5000!!! I had set our goal at $3500, and I was depressed, thinking we weren't going to meet that goal. HA! The new picture is me (on the right) with my co-captain and cancer sister, Stacy. She's a semi-colon, too, and we thought it was awesomely ironic that the colon cancer sign was put right by our campsite. So we had to fight the beast!

*hugs*

    So, for some reason it won't
    So, for some reason it won't do. Help! I'm going to shower, so send me helpful comments on how not to be a fool about this, and I'll (hopefully) show y'all the picture later!

    Looks good from here, Gail!
    The picture looks good from over here, Gail... although you both are a little small, I love to see faces and my eyes are bad to make them out in the small pictures :) If it's still not showing up on your screen you have to do a refresh (or I think Mary called it a "Hard Refresh". I'm not exactly sure how you do it on a PC... but Command/Shift/R works on a Mac.

    Congratulations on making more than your goal!! 99 miles is HUGE!!

    Just got back from two relays today, Gail. I wasn't walking but
    was circulating a postcard for people to sign asking our state
    legislature to pass colon cancer screening legislation (requiring
    ins. companies to cover). Last year the session ended before passage.
    And also to urge legislators to keep the funding for breast and
    cervical cancer in the budget (don't move it to take care of the
    shortage of money!!).

    Went to three relays doing that this weekend.It wasn't
    a very good weekend because of rain and then it turned cold but
    they are brave hearts and have lots of fun. This is the 25th
    year for Relays for Life.

    Hugs,
    Barbara

    Sorry we're small!
    I see it now, too. Must have needed refreshing, because when I came back on, there we were. I wish the faces would show up better, like they do on facebook. We're both grinning, while at the same time trying to look fierce.
