Hi. I wanted to let you know that I linked your post, "Call If Lonely", to my post on Facebook. Reading yours inspired me to be grateful for the Puff in my life.

Rita, call me at 617-875-9400.  I'm not  a magician, but I do know how to repair credit and get mortgages for people who don't think they can get financed.  That's actually what I do for a living.  Can't promise anything, but I am sometimes able to pull the cat out of the hat.

Thanks, Rita. I figured it was time to jump in with both feet. I've been lurking for quite a while now. Just went thru the members page and was excited to see so many familiar faces here.

truck stop quote (note the date at the bottom):

IF OS CLOSES DOWN (GASP) a) Will we still have the truckstop?
2) will the gnome then have a Facebook page?
3) will you pick me up in board shorts and sandals on the bike?
4) does that mean we will have to go back to (GASP) real life?
