Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

School chums

When I was 15 I went to St. Margaret's School in Victoria with Margaret and Cammy. When they visit me we recall all the laughs and good times we had--and the good times we are having now. It's great fun. It seems so long ago --and it was --50 years ago!!
Roses are Red my Love by Bobby Vinton and Chubby Checkers(The Twist) blared on the radio. We were carefree kids who had no idea what life had in store for us. We were fortunate to grow up in a country safe and peaceful--and families that loved us. We all count our blessings--and there are many.
