  1. Oh you guys I am so sorry. Please, please forgive my rudeness. And thank you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes. It really does mean so much. The Farm still has a special place in my heart. I just need to get back into the mode of checking in here. Whenever I pop in like this it always reminds me how much I miss it here. And how much I miss all of you. :heart:
  2. Happy Birthday to my very dear friend! I hope you have the most beautiful day! Big hug & kisses!! :heart:
  3. It has definitely dwindled down over the years. Last year I think we had one family come to our door. We use to have so many. I totally understand why this is happening but it's still nonetheless kind of sad.
  4. Fun question, Susan! I have fond memories! Back in the 60's (which is probably the last time I went trick or treating as a kid) it was still fun and relatively safe. I remember those cheap little costumes we would get from stores like JJ Newbury's and Woolworth. There's a blast from the past. The bigger kids took us little ones out for an evening of candy collecting in the neighborhood. It was so much fun! Nowadays there's no way I'd even think of doing that. We usually do things like attend community organized events. Like this year we're taking my granddaughter to "Boo At The Zoo". You get to hang out in the Zoo after hours in your costume with the animals and lots of candy. Great fun!
  5. Happy Birthday, Mark! It's been too long. Hope you're having a great day!
  6. Wow! Toni, it sounds like a fabulous trip and the pictures are spectacular!! Italy is definitely on my bucket list! Thank you for sharing! BTW - Not even one picture for us foodies? Lol!
  7. Sorry I'm late. Nel, I hope you had a fantastic birthday!
  8. Haha! Toni, all my friends have said that exact same thing to me. As soon as they heard HEART, they knew I'd be all over that. Lol! The thing is, other than Heart (and maybe Elvis Costello) I'm not all that jazzed about any of the other acts in that lineup. Plus, I'm seeing Heart this weekend at our casino here. So I decided it's probably not worth all the cost of gas and tickets, also sitting through all those other acts and the two and a half hour weekend traffic jam thru the Bay Area. Ugh! But if you guys decide to go, have a wonderful time!
  9. That is just unbelievably tragic! How much more are the people of that community expected to endure? I'm watching the evening news right now. It's so heartbreaking to see more destruction and devastation heaped upon these poor people.
  10. I never like officially wrote down any lyrics or music but when I was a kid I use to make up silly little songs. It was just dumb little songs I made up mostly to annoy my sisters. Geez! I'd forgotten all about that. Bet my sisters haven't though. Lol!
  11. Sadly, as much as I love Soho's I don't think I can make it to that show. I'm going to have to shoot for The Canyon club. Both venues are are really nice.
  12. Thank you, guys! I'm going to try and come around a little more. I really do miss all the fun and information here at the farm.
  13. I most definitely will be going! I've seen TPATH at Bridgeschool and now HEART! :cool:
  14. Thank you, Marcia! I feel like someone who's been away from their hometown for years. Lol!
  15. My goodness, I can't believe I've been away from the farm so long. This place was like my second home for years. I really have to try to catch up and get back in touch with my Farmer friends! I missed you guys!
  16. Toni, I can't believe Tara is getting married. She was just a young girl when we met. My god, are we really getting that old?! Lol!

  18. Wow! Toni, that is very impressive! Your pictures are beautiful and the stories are wonderful! I'm very happy that you and your family had the opportunity to take such an amazing vacation! You deserve it!
  19. I was very sad and hurt to hear this news. I met Michelle in Memphis 10 years ago. I sort of lost touch with her. My last contact was text messaging with her a couple of years ago. I didn't even know she had moved back to Ohio. She was such a sweet person and always a big hug and smile for me every time I saw her. I'll never forget her grabbing my arm and pulling me up front with her at the Ventura Mudcrutch show. We had a blast that night! She had a heart of gold and she was so beautiful! My prayers and condolences to her family. They must be so heartbroken today. Rest in love and peace, Michelle! :085:
  20. Nurk, that the best news today! So happy for you! Now just continue on that path of recovery. Way to go!
  21. Nurk, you know I wish you the best today. I'm so sorry you have to go through all of this. Sending prayers and good thoughts to you! (((Big hugs)))
  22. Yay!!! The Nurkster is back! So glad to hear you're home. You rest up and take care of yourself so you keep getting stronger. We've still got lots of TPath, Dirty Knobs and who knows maybe even some Mudcrutch in our future! And we're way overdo for a trip to the Magic Castle to see Gretchen! Hang in there, Nurk! :heart:
  23. I'm seeing Heart here in town at the end of the summer.
  24. Well we're having very hot weather here this weekend. So, I'm hanging around the house with the Grandkids and the A/C! Lol! We've been watching movies The Avengers and ParaNorman. Both very good and highly recommended. And we walked up to the neighborhood park. Today you'll find me on my couch catching up on "American Horror Story". Happy Sunday, Farmers!
