Here's wishing you a wonderful trip to the windy city. I'm actually going there next month with three friends, by choice. :) My reason is a bit more fun, strictly recreational. I am praying for peace and healing for you.

As you so eloquently put it in an earlier post: "KICK CANCER'S BUTT!"

troutbirder said...

All the best for you, Leontien.
And on to far less important trivia, in answer to your question about my "Pike Peak" post. It was intended to be a trick question. A famous mountain, known to long time Americans, and named after famous early explorer Zebulon Pike, who found it, likes in Colorado. An almost unknown one also named after the same man who explored the upper Mississippi River lies along that river Iowa. This is less than 3 hours drive from my home in southeaster Minnesota. So I figured people would wonder how I could drive all the way and back to Colorado in one day. Of course, I didn't. ok I admit I have a mischevious sense of humor.

Thanks so much for coming by my blog and becoming a follower. I am following you now too. I read your animal cracker -chocolate recipe and think I will give it a try. I read the post just before that too and want to wish you the best as you face this challenge. It looks like you have many people 'rooting' for you. Take care. Mickie

Thinking of you today! Kick that ugly thing's butt!

Lori Skoog said...

Leontien...you are deserving of all the support you have, and you will get through this. Sounds like you are in Chicago. Our daughter had breast cancer discovered at the age of 37, had a double mastectomy and is doing VERY well four years later. Her kids were 4 and 2 at the time and she got through it. Thank you for keeping us posted and I will be thinking of you. Big hugs from Skoog Farm.

North said...
