Hey back, Bajio! I was away for a while on an extended trip, so I just now saw your message. ARGH! I knew there was a reason they called them computer... terminals. :P Hope your new one lasts you a good long time. :D
Thanks for the Feb good wishes. Sorry didn't reply sooner. Been busy and had the laptop I use bite the big one. Had to get a new one and of course I've got to re-do all my web sites again. Hope your St. Paddy's day is fun. Take care.

Hi, nice to hear from you and glad you like the comment in my whatchacallit. I've been busy running the ebay business and making jewelry stock to sell there and to get ready for the fall and winter holiday bazaars I sell at. After I finish this message, I'll post my ebay store address in case you're interested in looking at what I do. The big thing right now is the bottlecap stuff. Which is cool because there's no limit to what you can put in it. If you haven't seen it, you've got to check it out. Hope you have a very nice evening and a wonderful week ahead..
Hi Bajio! It's good to see you here. I see from your profile info that you're not able to get here for long anymore, but I sure am glad you're able to drop in now and then - and glad I was on at/near the same time, too. Years ago a friend and I came up with something similar to the Craig Ferguson line at the end of your info... "But that was yesterday, when today was still tomorrow." We were quite young then and would often recite it to other youngins who were drunk. The facial contortions as they tried to reason it out were priceless! Thanks for that great memory. :D
I've had a couple of dreams like that too, but only with my best friend from college, who died of AIDS 5 years after we graduated. The dreams didn't happen until 5 years after his death, not long after I moved from the college town where we'd lived (and he grew up in) to the town I'm in now to be with my now husband. I think maybe Jamie wanted me to know he was still close to me, even though I was now 200 miles from where we met and he is buried. They actually were sort of like other dreams, where new things happen, but they felt very different after I woke up, like I'd had the chance to spend some time with him. The best one was when I dreamed my huband-to-be was indefinitely detained on our wedding day. Everything was paid for, the guests were waiting, and the bridal party was dressed and ready. So Jamie, who never got to meet Mark (my husband), offered to stand in for him to accommodate all the folks from out of town, not to mention make use of the already paid for hall and catering. What turned out to be so funny was that I couldn't get most people, especially my parents, to understand that this *wasn't* Mark and that Jamie was gay! And true to his wicked sense of humor, Jamie tried to take advantage of the situation by accepting my parents wedding gift of a tropical cruise for me and my new "husband." No, they didn't give us a cruise, but it was a fun idea, one he likely dropped into the scenario just so he could use it to humorous effect. He's been gone since 1991 and I still miss him terribly. There were only the 2 or 3 dreams but I never give up hoping there will be more. I had a long life with my folks, as I was 44 when they passed. But I only new Jamie for less than a decade. // I'm giving you a great big hug in my heart for also having lost all the things that tied you to your mom and dad. I'm a Taurus and I know how things *can* play a very big part in feeling secure and a part of a larger life picture.
Thanks so much for those kind words. My Mom and Dad died 9 months apart. My Mom's sister was the only one that said she'd take us (I overheard all of the adult relatives arguing over who would HAVE TO TAKE US with my Dad's sister saying if she wasn't paid for it, she didn't want us.) The only one without a family at home was my Mom's middle sister. She really sacrificed a lot to take us including a job waiting for her in Florida (we lived in Ohio at the time). The vulture lawyers told her to keep paying bills and she'd be reimbursed. She never was. She spent her whole life's savings trying to keep our house for us and take care of us but in the end the lawyers made her sell our house and EVERYTHING we owned except for our clothes and then told her she couldn't take us out of state. The things I still miss from losing everything is all of the vintage christmas ornaments they had and the ones I made in school. We did get to keep our photo album also. My Aunt told the lawyers to go f*** themselves and said stop me and then we moved to West Virginia for about 6 months before we ended up in Florida. In addition to all of this, my Dad had an insurance policy but because he didn't leave a will, the powers that be said me and my sister couldn't have it until we came of age. I didn't get it until they dropped the legal adult age to 18. I used it for a down payment on a house back then. My Aunt took good care of us and gave up a lot of her old lifestyle to do so. She passed away back in 1993 just a couple of days shy of the date my Mom died. (it's weird, October is the month when a lot of my family members were born and also died). I get premonitions and I have what I believe are out of body experiences in my dreams and I've had long talks with my parents and my aunt at times, catching them up on what I was doing and the new people in my life. My Aunt did a good job with me. Thanks again for your kind words. Hope you have a great week. Barb
Hi Bajio. I just saw your beautiful and moving sunset tribute to your late father. I'm so sorry you've been without him for so very long. I'm gratified to see, though, that you successfully made it to adulthood, and with a sense of humor intact. Bless whoever helped you achieve that. And bless you, too, for being a survivor. I know your dad would be very proud of you. (Hug)
