Farewell, My Friend

My friend, Linda Kilander, passed away today.

I have never known anyone who took on cancer with such a positive spirit,

and fought to the bitter end.

Thanks for all of the good times.

Everyone who knew you comes away with some of your spirit.

That is your gift to all of us.

I look back on our similarities - 
both fiercely independent, down to earth, creative with color
and most of all - just girls at heart.

Girls just want to have fun - and we did!

Of Course, I Said YES!!!

In a weak moment, I said YES 
to being a model in a local fashion show.

It is tomorrow at Sand Creek Country Club
and is a benefit
 for St. Patrick's School 
in Chesterton.

No wild photos to show you - 

but take a look at the shoes I will be wearing!!!

I actually like the leopard ones and they are quite comfortable.

Fortunately, my friend, Leona, stopped by yesterday and
coached me on walking the runway.
She used to be a lingerie model.  Who knew??

I am modeling for Chelle's in Chesterton.

The clothes are my style.
I am a regular customer of hers.

A BIG Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who sent me a birthday card or personal text on my birthday!!  I enjoyed the presents, too!

I am so glad that it is no longer "in" to type
Happy Birthday on Facebook!

On the eve of my birthday, my mother had yet another mini stroke.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
I am so grateful I had the chance to spend a week-end with her recently.

Carry on!
