HI GUYS,  JUST A WEE NOTE BECAUSE I'M FEELING LONELY, MY FRIEND IS GOING TO DISNEY WORLD TOMORROW FOR A WK , SHE'S NOT EVEN GONE AND I MISS HER ALREADY. I USUALLY GET A WEE CALL MOST DAYS SO I'LL MISS THOSE. SO BE PREPARED TO HEAR LOTS OF COMPLAINING HA.   I HOPE THEY HAVE A GREAT TIME.  THEY  WERE AT WONDERLAND ALL DAY YESTERDAY , SHE SAID IT WAS A LONG DAY HA.  BUT THE KIDS HAD A GOOD TIME.  ANYWAY I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A NICE WK.  IT'S BEEN HUMID ALL DAY.  MY FRIEND  WAS OVER TODAY WITH MY GROCERIES  AND WE OPENED MY WINDOW AND LEFT IT OPEN AND I THOUGHT WITH THAT OPEN AND THE DOOR THERE WOULD BE A NICE BREEZE BUT NOT EVEN A LEAF MOVED AND IT WAS SO HUMID NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NOW.  ANYWAY I'M OF NOW  SO HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.  LIZ  XXXX

HI LIZ, SORRY YOUR GOING TO MISS YOUR FRIEND, A WEEK WILL FLY IN BUT YOU KNOW WE'RE ALWAYS AROUND IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO. I WISH I WAS GOING TO FLORIDA  :(

IT HAS BEEN VERY HUMID AND TOMORROW IS SUPPOSED TO BE WORSE, I MISS SITTING IN THE GARDEN IN THE EVENING BUT I CAN'T TAKE A CHANCE WITH THE MOSQUITO'S THEY COME RIGHT FOR ME.  ::)

 WE HAD A LOVELY COUPLE OF DAYS AT SARA'S COTTAGE LAST WEEK, THE FIRST DAY THE  LAKE WAS A BIT STRONG BUT THURSDAY IT WAS LOVELY AND CALM. SHE'S NOT FAR FROM SAUBLE BEACH SO WE HAD TO GO SEE IF THINGS HAD CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, WE USED TO TAKE THE KIDS CAMPING THERE WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG. IT'S STILL A NICE WEE HOLIDAY PLACE FOR YOUNG FAMILIES.

BOBBY AND MY SISTER HAVE JUST ARRIVED HOME FROM BAND PRACTICE, THEY FINISHED EARLY TONIGHT.    SO  I'LL SAY  NITE NITE AND SEE YOU TOMORROW  :-**,

RUBY I THINK I SOUNDED SO WINEY.  I KNOW I CAN COME ON HERE AND TALK AND YOU  LISTEN HA HA. TODAY WAS VERY HUMID AND I THINK BECAUSE WE LEFT MY WINDOW OPEN  IT FELT WORSE.  IT'S STILL OPEN  AS IT GETS COOLER AT NIGHT BUT I'LL SEE ABOUT TOMORROW.  I'VE NOT HAD TO PUT THE AIR ON AS IT'S BEEN OK.  BUT WHEN I CAME OUT AND SAT DOWN I PUT IT ON  TO GET COOL HA.  IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN USE OR WEAR TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE MOSQUITOS,  THEY ARE NASTY LITTLE THINGS AND THEY BITE. I'M GLAD YOU HAD A NICE COUPLE OF DAYS, YOU NEED SOMETHING LIKE THAT JUST TO  CLEAR YOUR HEAD.   THAT SOUNDED SO NICE, I MEAN SAYING BOBBY AND YOUR SISTER JUST CAME HOME.   I CAN HEAR THUNDER IN THE DISTANCE, IT'S BEEN GOING ON NOW THIS WHILE.  IT SOUNDS LIKE LIGHTENING WILL COME AT ANY MINUTE.  WELL LOVE I HOPE TOMORROW YOU CAN SIT OUT IN THE GARDEN, FEET UP AND A WEE GLASS IN YOUR HANDS. HA.  SIP SIP.  LIZ XXX

Anyone on here that went to or knows anybody or anything about the above schools? I went to both from 1953 - 1964 and am looking for any old classmates. I left NI in 1977 and have been living in Edmonton, Alberta ever since.
Who,what, where,when and why,I think that says it all.

Hi udini,   I  went to Glenwood, left school the end of 1960, I had a couple of girl friends who went to Everton but they would have left school the same time as me.
Maiden names were ( Jeanie  Bennett & ( Ruby Harkness,)   I hope your search works out, I came to Canada in 1967 with my Husband, we live in Ajax  Ontario.

Drop in anytime  :)

HI ALL, I HOPE YOUR WEEKEND IS GOING WELL   :-**

LIZ, OUR WEEKEND WAS PRETTY GOOD, OUR FRIENDS INVITED US TO THEIR TRAILER AT ( LOVE SICK LAKE )  FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS BUT WE ONLY WENT FOR THE DAY AND IT WAS LOVELY. BOBBY GOES TO PLAY EUCHRE ON A SUNDAY EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS SO IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIT OF A RUSH FOR US GETTING HOME ON TIME.

WE SCATTERED SOME OF OUR FRIEND DOROTHY'S ASHES IN AN AREA IN THE LAKE WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY, SO WE BRING HER FLOWERS ON HER ANNIVERSARY, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 4 YEARS SINCE SHE PASSED AWAY  :(

TODAYS WEATHER IS VERY COMFORTABLE SO FAR SO I HOPE YOU HAVE A PLEASANT DAY.  :-*
