I don`t know if you folk heard about the helicopter which crashed on the roof of a building in Manhattan.
I saw it on the Internet news when I was on line and it had just happened.
It was the building my nephew Ben works in as I recognised the address.
I of course tried to phone him but no success -his parents I knew would not have seen it and anyway I was so frozen I could not think.
Then I got an email which simply said -`I am okay in New York`.
Yesterday he emailed me with a lot of information about it -I won`t go into details,other than no helicopters or planes are permitted in that area other than Police or Armed Services so they all immediately thought 9/11.
The Emergency Services were there in 4 minutes -the building was evacuated and also were the adjacent Blocks.
Debris fell and it had damaged the water system so the last 15 floors were flooded -fire from the fuel was the main concern.
I hope never again to live through the few hours until I got that email.

HI JILLY, I HAVE YET TO HEAR IT ON THE NEWS?  I HOPE NO ONE WAS HURT OR WORSE.  THE THOUGHT MUST HAVE  RUSHED INTO YOUR MIND AND OTHER PEOPLE AS WELL.  THOSE WHO SURVIVED 9/11  AND SAW THAT MUST HAVE REAWAKENED  A LOT OF TERRIBLE MEMORIES.  I'M SO GLAD YOUR NEPHEW WAS THOUGHTFUL ENOUGH TO SEND YOU AN EMAIL LETTING YOU KNOW HE WAS OK.    TAKE CARE AND LET US KNOW HOW THINGS ARE GOING WITH HIM.  LIZ  XXX

HI JILLY, WE SAW THAT ON THE NEWS ABOUT THE HELICOPTER CRASH.  THAT MUST HAVE GIVEN YOU A TERRIBLE FRIGHT WONDERING IF YOUR NEPHEW WAS IN THE BUILDING.  YOU NEVER KNOW THE MINUTE THESE DAYS.  HOPE YOU'RE WELL AND I HOPE THE WEATHER THERE IS NOT AS WILD AS THE FORECAST IS PREDICTING. XX

RUBY, HAS THE RAIN GONE AWAY YET?  I HOPE YOU CAN GET OUT INTO YOUR GARDEN.  IT'S SOMETHING YOU REALLY LOOK  FORWARD TO AT THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER.  OUR FIRST TWO WEEKS OF WINTER HAVEN'T BEEN TOO BAD.  COOL (15 OR 18C IN THE DAYTIME AND 7 - 10C OVERNIGHT), SO CAN'T COMPLAIN.  GOT SOME DECENT RAIN LAST WEEK WHICH WAS BADLY NEEDED.  TODAY IS BEAUTIFUL.  BRIGHT SUNSHINE AND ALL THE DOORS AND WINDOWS ARE OPEN.  HOPE BOBBY AND YOU ARE WELL.  XX

LIZ, HOW ARE YOU DOING?  HOPE YOUR PAINS AREN'T TOO BAD.  ARE YOU WATCHING ANY GOOD TV SERIES AT THE MOMENT?  I LIKE "SILENT WITNESS" AND "FOYLE'S WAR" PLUS "LINE OF DUTY".  HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO GET TOGETHER WITH YOUR FRIENDS FOR COFFEE?  XX

JACKIE, YOUR PHOTOS ARE LOVELY AND IT LOOKS LIKE YOU AND VI ARE HAVING THE TIME OF YOUR LIVES.  XX

SCOTLAND, HOPE YOU'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET AWAY TO YOUR HOLIDAY HOME.  TAKE CARE. XX

HI KC, IT LOOKS LIKE WE'RE HAVING A NICE DAY, SUNNY WITH A BLUE SKY. HA.  HOPE YOU'RE NOT FEELING THE COLD  TOO BAD.   IT'S BEEN PRETTY DAMP THIS LAST WHILE BACK EVEN THOUGH IT'S SPRING AND SUMMER NEXT WK. SO I'LL JUST BLAME ALL MY ACHES AND PAINS ON THE WEATHER HA.   SO FAR WE HAVE NOT SET ANY DATES YET BUT THAT WILL COME, WHAT WORRIES ME IS THERE HAS BEEN NO NOTICE YET ABOUT  JULY THE 1st.  CANADA DAY,  LAST YR WE HAD THE BBQ AND HAD TO HAVE IT INSIDE BECAUSE OF THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY.  IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUTSIDE.  ANYWAY  I HOPE THEY ARE NOT  TAKING IT OF THE MENU LIKE A FEW OTHER THINGS THEY HAVE.  I TRIED WATCHING THAT SILENT WITNESS BEFORE , IT'S NOT ON NOW,  AND LOST INTEREST IN IT.  FOYLE'S WAR  AND LINE OF DUTY ARE NOT ON , BUT THEY MIGHT STILL DO THAT.   I STILL LOVE  SOME OF THE OLD ONES AND EVEN RERUNS OF RERUNS HA.     I HOPE YOU AND THE FAMILY ARE ALL KEEPING WELL.   LIZ  XXX

HI SARAH, THE RAPTORS PARADE HAD FINISHED BEFORE WE HEARD ABOUT THE SHOOTING, THANKFULLY ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE WERE INJURED AND  NOT SERIOUS AS FAR AS I HEARD. IT WAS A LOVELY EXCITING DAY FOR ALL THE FANS AND THEN YOU GET SCUM WHO TRY TO SPOIL IT. I'M GLAD NORMAN AND YOUR DAUGHTER HAD A GOOD CHECKUP.  :-*

LIZ, THE BAND PLAYED AT THE BURLINGTON SOUND OF MUSIC A FEW YEARS AGO, I THINK IT WAS SHORTLY AFTER YOU MOVED INTO THE BUILDING. WE JUST DID A SHORT MARCH TO THE BAND STAND WHERE THEY PLAYED. WE HAD A GREAT AUDIENCE WHO SANG ALONG,  I KEPT LOOKING OUT HOPING YOU WOULD SHOW UP  :-*

JEAN I BET YOU THOUGHT BY THIS TIME YOU  AND MO WOULD BE ENJOYING LIFE AT A SLOW PACE, NO RUSHING AROUND,  NO BABYSITTING, WELL NOT MUCH, OR ANY OTHER KIND OF SITTING HA.   I SAID TO MY FRIEND  THE OTHER DAY, IT SEEMS SHE'S BEEN DOING MORE "MINDING" SINCE SHE RETIRED THAN BEFORE, I DON'T THINK  SHE WANTED TO  AGREE BUT SHE SAID IT'S BECAUSE SHE'S MORE AVALIABLE NOW.  MOST TIMES SHE DOES NOT MIND .  I LOVE THE THOUGHT OF A CHIPMUNK IN THE GARDEN, I LOVE WATCHING THEM.  I LIKE WATCHING THE SQUIRRELS AND THE BIRDS OUTSIDE.   IT'S SIMPLE THINGS THAT GIVE US PLEASURE.   LIZ  XXX

HI JEAN, WE STILL HAVE A COUPLE OF BUSHES TO TRIM BUT WHEN WE DECIDE TO DO IT, IT RAINS, ::) WE HAD HEAVY RAIN AWHILE AGO AND THE SKY IS BLACK SO I GUESS WE'RE IN FOR MORE.

THE BAND DID A CONCERT IN BURLINGTON A FEW YEARS AGO BUT HAVEN'T DONE ANY SINCE, IT'S A BIT FAR FOR SOME MEMBERS.

I'M SURE YOU'RE GLAD TO GET SETTLED BACK TO YOUR OWN HOUSE, ENJOY THE PEACE. :-* IT'S LASHING AGAIN :D

LIZ, I'M GLAD TO HEAR YOU'RE GETTING YOUR NEW BED DELIVERED, IT HAS TAKEN A LONG TIME,  OR IS THIS A DIFFERENT ONE YOU HAVE ORDERED. ? :-*
