Hi Marie, How are you. I hope you enjoy the picnic. I seems like you have had a lot of fun this summer with things surrounding the fair. I would like to go to Maine sometime. It sounds like a beautiful place.
It sounds like Reed has resolved some of his issues below from his latest email. I am glad that Russ is doing better and Reed got good news from the doctor about his PSA level.
I enjoy the cooler fall weather although it is barely here. At least we don't need to worry about air conditioning any longer.
I hope you have a nice weekend. Thanks for the updates on what is going on with you. Ellen

Besides, I'm going to need all these people to walk me through it when I have a grumpy teenager on my hands instead of a sweet natured 7 year old ;)

AW, shucks. Just trying to give back what I got when Eric was little. Soothing the panic!

Hi Marie-I see that you just got back from a vacation. You really deserve one. I hope you were able to chill out. We are just about settled in the new place. We do like it here. It is nice to have everything on one level. Jim likes that it is near our old development.
We have lots of friends there and our house is just 2 miles from the new place. I hope to have more time to visit TuD now that we are settled. I still do go to PT 2x a week to help with my balance and walking. They have a fitness room here and I hope to check it out.
Soon it will be time to start up Marie's Bakery. I hope you have a great season of baking. Have a nice weekend. Cat

Hi, Marie, I received an invitation from you to join to administrators group, but no working link was included in the email, could you fix that up a little, or it is scam? Thanks! Natalie ._c-

Marie, I received a notification today asking me to join this group:

Marie B has invited you to join TuDiabetes Administrative Volunteers on Diabetes community by Diabetes Hands Foundation: TuDiabetes

I clicked on this three times, and I got a message that the group does not exist. Do you know more about this?

Any morning, any evening, any day...! ;-)

I've read several Jerry bios and would love to get a copy his medical records as I totally suspect T2 was more dangerous than chasing the dragon, etc.

Hello Marie. I never knew Russ was such a baby. He will not stay alone. Tom even sleeps there. Russ is 88 and death on his mind. I hope Tom does not get in trouble at work/ Russ's insurance pays for home nursing care and for physical therapy so that is a relief/ I am alone but guess I am made of stronger stuff. The floor looks great. We bought a rug for it nice match. How did your entertaining go.? I think Russ might come home tomorrow. Give my best to Ed. Take good care.HUGS,POPS
