During the flurry of mayhem that has been about this place lately, the engineer ran off and left me. Only to go visit his sister, but still he left me here to fend for myself with all these crazy critters to deal with. How I survived it, I’ll never know. There were a few close calls. But that’s another story for another day.
The important thing is that he was able to visit with Cathy, something that’s not always easy, given that she lives on a remote island 3000 miles away. He was able to join her on one of her chemo treatments. (Isn’t she cute in her hat? I think she looks like a movie star.)
He was also able to see first hand all the cards and gifts all of you have sent up to her. She is quite the fashionista so she has been having fun trying them all out.
Of course, she wanted to know more about where all these cards and gifts were coming from. So the engineer (he’s a computer engineer by the way), set her up with a fancy new netbook computer complete with a program that will read her email to her.
She wanted to thank everyone but decided learning to type might take her awhile so she sent him home with this note instead.
However, she’s apparently got the hang of it as she now has figured out Facebook and even mentioned that I’ve not been posting on my blog enough lately. :)
So everybody say hello to Cathy. She’s out there lurking. And if you would like to shoot her an e-mail just let me know and I’ll get you her address. I’m still buried under a mountain of tomatoes so if you don’t hear back right away, don’t panic. Life is just wee bit crazy ‘round here.
