HELLO strangers--

For anyone that noticed, I have been absent for a couple of weeks, I apologize. METRO PCS has been giving me A HORRIBLE TIME WITH MY WI-FI. Worthy of repeating METRO PCS has been mucking with my Wi-Fi. I haven't been able to upload anything. It is supposed to be running 4g, but even now it is way toooooooo slow...... Nonetheless, there have been other factors contributing to the cause of my absence as well, more serious issues.

1) I hadn't received any cards until this past Friday and Saturday, and let me tell you now I really really needed the pick me up/distraction as you will read the rest.

On Friday May 9th, a 15 yo girl, who had been my youngest daughters VERY best friend from the age of 2 until 2 years ago had a blood vessel burst in her brain, sadly Peyton passed away this past Friday leaving behind her parents and 3 sisters, and hundreds of friends. She was a wonderful kid, full of spirit and life. Peyton was a friend to all and had a smile that you could never forget. Whether Hunter (my daughter) and Peyton were fighting or laughing they were inseparable for a decade. This world has lost an Angel and it saddens me to no end. The services should be on Saturday.

I will resume my blog after Memorial Day or shortly thereafter. I hope that all is well with each of you.
Getting these thanks out to Wes Moore (sends 3 flat rate boxes stuffed with Braves), Dimebix Nick (sends a stuffed bubble mailer), and to Ethan for continuing to alphabetically tear up my want list. Scans of the BINDER hits resume when I get back to blogging, and that should take a week just from those threee packages. They are already scanned but couldn't load them, thanks again to the horrible METRO PCS service!!!


  1. I sent you off a package a day or two ago. Mostly non-sports. Sorry to hear of the passing of your daughters friend. Life really does suck sometimes. Stay strong.

  2. This is so sad. I'm at a loss for words, so I'll keep it short. Sorry to hear about the passing of a family friend.

  3. Stay strong. Let your friends know we all feel for their loss, for what that's worth. Can't imagine losing a child, and i don't want to. We'll be here when you get back (even those of us who aren't really "here" right now). Peace.
