    My dear friends,

    I will be not able to be online for a long time because of back surgery I'm having next week. I will be on bedrest for a while and I don't think I will be able to sit up to use my laptop for a while. Know that I am thinking of you and wish we could have an ice cream party before I go.

    In advance I am wishing you:
    Happy Halloween and Happy Thanksgiving.

    I am hoping I will be able to use my laptop in December so I will leave the other holidays open for the board.

    Hugs and kisses to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Maggie May my sweetie pie, oohhh I will miss you so darn much!!!! I will be thinking of you and hoping that your doing well each and every day. Make sure that your hubby waits on you hand and foot. Have him feed you bon bons. Also, remember you can call me any ole time you want. I would love to hear from you and hear how things are going. So if you cant pick up your laptop, then maybe you will be able to pick up the phone. Or, you can have hubby hold it up to your ear. hehehe

    Good luck with the surgery sweetie. muahs

    Dear Maggie,

    You will be missed!

    I sincerely hope that your back surgery goes far better than could ever be expected and that you have a speedy recovery!

    Please take care of yourself and don't do more than what you should be doing after surgery, ok? Of course, I'm sure ice cream would probably be the best remedy for you, eh?

    Big love and hugs
