  2. Sondra, Sondra, Sondra. Only you could make me laugh after such dreadful news!! I am so sorry for your accident. Oh, my goodness. Well, a happy belated birthday to you coupled with get well wishes. I turned 59 last week, but I don't think I could do as much as you do!! And I'm quite active. As a matter of fact, I know I can't. We were repairing the deck and my job was to screw down the floorboards. Gues who didn't have enough weight and strength to put behind the drill? So my friend told me to go in and make quilts!! A man after my own heart!!

  3. Not the 'break' you was hoping for. One arm would be bad enough, but TWO! Double ouch.
    I hope you make a quick recovery Sondra. And a belated birthday wish for you.

  6. Oh Sondra....oh my gosh....oh no. I can't believe you are laughing (and making us laugh) after that happened. I don't even know what to say...don't even know if I should wish you Happy Birthday because I guess it isn't gonna be the best one you ever had. I want to ask a lot of questions but I don't want you to feel like you have to answer. Nearly speechless ...I will be thinking about you, (for whatever good that does) but at least you know I care.
