Special Request and Buddy Update!!

Tina - (the very kind and generous owner of High Hopes) has a Grandfather that is turning 88 yrs young on Jan 21...Tina's uncle has told her that it would so make her Grandfather smile if he received cards of well wishes from all over.

Here is a little Tina has written to all us Divas about this delightful fella.... "My Grandfather will be turning 88 on Jan. 21 and he has been a bit blue for the last several months. He is a widower and misses my Grandmother and had been dealing with being alone for several years now, however his health is starting to fail him (his mind is as sharp as a tack). He has arthritis in his knees that makes it difficult to walk now so only leaves the house on Wednesday nights to go to his adult writing group ....(a group of older writers...not porn writers...hehehe) ...and my uncle picks him up to take him to his house for Sunday Dinners. He has a pacemaker now, and has been slowing down quite a bit, due to other health complaints. As he told me my last call to him "Well honey, I do not buy anything with a long shelf life anymore but I still feel safe buying a green banana..." hehehe... God Bless Him...

Tina has told us that when her mother was alive she would hand stamp humorous cards for her Grandfather...and that he has always shown interest in what is going on in the stamping world. As far as what type of Birthday card to make him goes.......He sounds very easy to please.... loves fishing and has a great sense of humor..... Tina says, "He would just about love anything".

So if any of you kind people have a little time or maybe a Birthday card on hand and would like to make Tina's grandfathers day....Please email me ..... here......and I will give you his address.

I will be back a little later with my card for Tina's Grandpa.....I was in the process of making it when I got interrupted by some very Good News!!

Buddy's pathology report has come in and the tumor is benign!......it also states that it was taken out so cleanly they doubt that it will come back!!...What a relief!!

Thank you all again So Much ...for your thoughts and prayers....Bless you all!!

Hugs, Ila
