|I live in the SW part of Florida Everglades in the land where time stands still. You HAVE to love nature to live here!|

|Carol! You are still there! Welcome to Cubits!|

|Hello Hetty! I am about to lose my DG membership (expiring) but am so happy to be here and not lose friends! Thank you for the warm welcome!|

|Mine is expiring too and I'm not renewing. How have you been?|
Dec 23, 2010 10:36 AM CST
|Carol - check out everyone on 'Florida chat'|
God is good, all the time!!!

|Hi Jan & Hetty! I'm just getting back into gardening (no thanks to that cold snap).|
We are striving more this year into "self-sustainability", so we're trying to grow "pretty" things to eat! I recently acquired a yerba buena . It looks, smells and tastes like a mint but much larger. It is said to have good medicinal values also. It's also very pretty!
Oops! I forgot I'm in the Introductory area!

|Geeze, if there was a way to screw up making a peanut|
butter and jelly sandwich, leave it to me.
This is my post, deep from my heart that I got stupid and put in "pets".
My new made up word is bull honkey.
Being that I have a very bad memory, I am going to write it down and tape it on the wall.
It is a conglomeration of everything not acceptable, now in the " rule book of Carol".
I flunked a mammogram AGAIN. Kinda sorta. The tech was wincing and making squinty faces and this is not my first rodeo.
I am not afraid- just that Ohhhhh Mannnnnnn here we go again! The tests hurt but not the breast cancer that I had removed previously. I can't complain- they gave me 6 years and I am on numero 7 AND I laugh at death. Or maybe that giggle is escaping gas- who cares- it is still a giggle. I now have a grandson that I love dearly. Before I was worried
about putting my family thru through the "Fight" but now with that little man, my grandson, "Mr. Wonderful", I plan to fight and live forever! Yippee for me!
Shoot, I already lost my "bull honkey" paper! When going thru a terrifying ordeal, clinging to a dumb word makes a good day. Cancer isn't painful- it's the treatment. Cancer doesn't hurt but it's terrifying.
This is my hopeful request--PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!!!! You wonderful people are all I have.

|Carol - wishing you strength. Oh and we want to see a picture of Mr. Wonderful!|

|Carol, hopimg & praying for the very best for you!!!|

|Well, my insurance expired. I will never know if I have reaccuring breast cancer. My moods are up and down. Not bad- just "not me". Boy being super broke sure makes one think! I didn't get 2 jobs already this week but on the good side- I got out. The thread "Hello from the Everglades!" in Florida Gardening forum|

There are places that offer free mammo screening. Just be sure not to tell them if you are having any current problems or they will make you see your doctor.

|Oh, I would love to know where I can go! It would give me so much peace of mind. Is there a place you think that I can find out what all is available in SW Florida? |
Who's Mr Wonderful? My hubby? I found a pic!

I am so sorry to have missed you on the west coast, Hetty. I am much happier back in Fort Lauderdale near my family tho. I hope to get back on track socially but I had never stopped gardening. I hope to get crazy with the plumeria- I have a pool which takes up a good part of the yard so the frangipanis are a perfect "eye-catcher".

I have to thank you, Jan. You actually saved my life. I found a place for mammo's and I ended up with a double mastectomy but am now cancer-free. Yipppppeeee for me!
