hey Sparky, boy we had a blast yesterday, couldn't believe how many made it to the meetup. I met jrtpup here, catlover, Donna H, a whole bunch of people I don't know too well, it was just too much to cram into a 2 hour time frame. we all took a lot of pictures, and nobody looked at you when people pulled out their bg machines. it was great meeting Emily Walton, who works for Manny, and of course it's always special to see Manny. He's got some big ideas this year for our Big Blue Test. I see you have been busy with the welcomes and birthdays. I'm supposed to be taking the month off here, but you see I can't stay away. hugs, my friend!

Hey Sparky, just checking in to say I'm thinking of you.

Thanks for the welcome, it was much appreciated. After having diabates for 35 years you run out of friends that want to talk about it with you. They cannot understand that things change the longer you have it and you always have much to learn from others that have been there. This is the first I ahve been welcomed to talk. Again, thanks. Jo
