Yes you can VictorianG.  Have been able to for a while.  You can click on the little “send PM” on anyone's Profile, or else within the tan strip at any of their posts and then type a message to them.smiley-puppy smiley-puppy

Never thought of that one..I always assumed home made by the giver, but if your husband is very crafty I think that would be fine too. (or anybody else you know and makes something for you to mail out)

PM your name and address to me and you will be added to the list.

 

For everybody, if you sign up as of now..your name might not be put on right away..don't worry, my son goes in for surgery tomorrow and I will stay with him and won't be able to access internet for at least one day, or maybe a few more.

When you get the name of the person you are sending to, it should be mailed within a week…names will be given out, right after Thanksgiving.

 

I'm home, son is doing quite good, they put a nerve blocker inhis leg, so he doesn't feel pain.

He was mostly sleeping, so at 9 I left and came home ( 1 hour drive) will be back tomorrow, but for this night i sleep in my own bed.

So i will update list now.

Our son is doing pretty good, he will be taken of morphine IV today and just painkillers by mouth.

He has been out of bed, in a wheelchair and stand with a walker..hopefully he will come home this week.

We live 1 hour away from hospital and between animals, work and driving to be with him..live is pretty hectic.

But I'm updating the list again with a few more names…happy-flower

Butting in here just because Astrid is so busy and it will be a while before she can get back at me!

Mamajoseph, would it help to tell you that YOUR deadline is day after tomorrow?    poke

(Pete ducks behind the heavy table…   laugh )

Hey!  It isn't, but I could tell her that if it would make her feel better.  After all, we just want to help folks around here…    french
