Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Oh my aching head. Serves me right for drinking on an empty stomach. Got to sleep fine thanks Theresa. Even the best insomniac would have had trouble getting past the amount I drank. 😄

Up and at 'em it is. New day, new world and all that. Hopefully will get my spelling and grammar correct today too, once the hangover wears off that is. 😉

Need to go for a walk and clear this. Have to do the vat today. Pooh!

Good luck with the ooph today Monica. Better out than in as they say. 🙂

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Morning all....
Hope you are still sleeping it off Carole...hope they decide to operate sooner than later...attitude!...Oh yeah ...our Steel has it in bagfulls!!!Keep it coming missus...it'll get you through....

Lizzie will miss you and the other SRs who can't make it this weekend. Our little posse has gone down in numbers alot this time...but that means we will just have to whup! it up even more than usual...and raise a glass or 10 by proxy for those who aren't there!!hehehehe

Sal..the ooph is on the horizon..not long to go now..bet you can't wait to get it over with...at last! It is Friday isn't it?

Monica..good luck with your ooph today...I'm sure it will go just fine...
Martina...huff forgot ..puff about...huff the volcano ash...puff...trying really hard here to blow it away...huff puff....
I hope you can manage to get across to us...been looking forward to meeting you ....as said earlier, what rubbish timing, from a volcano
no less!!!

Now for something trivial....
Well I'm waiting for the washer man...been doing my daughters washing this past 3wks. Her washer broke down...now my washer has broken and the door won't open. Unfortunately it has a load of Emmas washing in it including her work clothes. That was last week, so no washing done here either...it's piling up...so if I come to the meet with my clothes standing up on their own...not my fault . 🙂

Have a good day all

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Morning all,

Put all my swear words in an email....thought better not give the moderators work to do with the red pen!

Carole - had a few vinos with you last night, be rude not to! It's a strange world when we think primary BC is good news, eh, girls? - but, logically, Carole - that does seem likely. Back to the crossed fingers, legs, eyes, it does make driving tricky though!

And loving the attitude, honey, that show MUST go on - boobs an'all!

But, fab news, Val - really glad they checked out the older mammos, and well done on the last herceptin, Eliza.
Monica, good to "see" you again, hope oophy doofy goes OK, take care.

Jacq, can completely concur with Mary - having shared a bottle or 5 at Ashbourne - she is no wuss - still standing at the end of the night - that's our Mary!

Hope you all manage to get to the meet up this weekend, I'll be there in spirit, lots of team hugs needed I reckon. Really hope that ash cloud doesn't hang around, Marina.

Take care all
Lizzie xx

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Oh my head .... now I know why I don't indulge any more!!!!

Up and at 'em Carole, waste no more time dwelling on those crap cells of ours, it's a brand new day 🙂

Good luck Monica .... and love to all. xxJacqxx

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Morning, all.

Yes, Di, we'll all be with Carole just as she has always been there for any of the rest of us; that is what Storm Riders do.

I remember now you remind me, Val. Oops sorry about that ash pile!

Thinking of you today, Carole. Take care of yourself.

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

hi all,

Carole, what an amazing woman you are...I am so proud to know you, and you won't get rid of us that quick Gal, whatever you say - we're congo-ing into every bloomin' appointment and surgery with you like it or not! Yes Riders?

I am so sorry not to be able to make the weekend away - I'm just a bit of an old crock at the moment, having heard your news Carole I have nothing to complain about so I'm not!

I will be thinking of you all and imagining you lot getting on horses (even if you don't plan to ride it's a great picture, everyone helping each other up and straight off the other side!)

Big hugs to all of you and especially to Steel, another Journey ahead, I hate the expression but it fits.

Di xxxxxxxxx

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Hi Eliza, In answer to your question my alter ego was "Caledonia".

Will you all stop huffing and pufffing coz the wind is blowing from the south and there is a huge mountain of volcano ash outside my front door.... goodnight all...sleep tight...love Val

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Hoping the ash cloud lifts Martina,
Very glad your scan was okay Val,
Carole I've been thinking about you all evening - just wish there was something practical positive to do to help.

So angry for you having to start up with this crap again - but, DEFFO small primary, I'll drink to that! Couldn't have a drink today as had car and relatives to boot, but there's a bottle looking at me whispering my name, cheers m'dear - you'll be just fine - can't you feel us all around you?

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Tallulah is setting up the weekend party in Haven, but hopefully will be along shortly.

Val, do you have a Storm Rider alter ego? I'm sure you were in there but I'm sorry I seem to have forgotten (and am blaming tamoxifen!).

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

I think that those in Haven may have heard that there is a gathering in Joe's this evening and will be riding over to join you all.

To Steel ...

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

I've a feeling that Sheriff Dan might need a double Joe...so why don't you just leave the bottle on the bar....oh and more glasses too..think we might need em!
OOps sorry Steel meant that splash to go in your glass not your lap!

Here's to you Steel...mud in yer eye.........

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Joe, set 'em up!
Steel strode into the bar, kicked a stool up, and thumped her elbows down on the well polished oak wood.
"What's up Steel?" asked Joe, polishing a glass then sliding it along towards her.
"Y'know, Joe," said Steel, her lips pursing as she tipped a bottle into the glass, "Sometimes you just don't know what's gonna get up and kick ya in the butt."
Joe nodded agreement, and narrowed his eyes just a touch. This wasn't like Steel. "Go'on", he said.
Steel flicked an eye towards him. "Nope, that's me done Joe. But I reckon as like you'd better get a few more of them glasses polished. Got some drinkin' buddies coming along."
And sure enough, Yorkie pushed through the door. "What ya got Joe? Nothing I'd like to taste I betcha. Want me to come round the back?"
"Ah,no, Yorkie, ta for the asking, but I think I'll wait for Tallulah to get back from Haven."
"Suit yourself," said Yorkie, slapping Steel on the back and reaching over the bar for glass. "Top this up then will ya?"
Joe smiled, tipped a double whisky into Yorkie's glass, and glanced at the windows. Sure enough, everybody not in Haven was piling along the boardwalk.
"Eh, Steel, got a party going?"
"Hmmph" grunted Steel. "There's always a party going. Just need to find it. Toss another this way Joe, and put one up for Sheriff Dan. Expectin' him soon."
Yorkie and Joe looked sideways at each other and raised an eyebrow or two. Sheriff Dan? Well waddayaknow!!!! 😉

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Chuckle, thanks Sheila. Didn't mean me to ride in solitude - like that could happen - I was kind of hoping it will only be me and none of the rest of you! 😄

Theresa, no trace of it on either side since the cavemen started painting. 🙂

Excellent Herceptin news there Rosie! What a relief that's going to be.

Eliza - Chill Dude! Make with the, like Hair CD, and get with it man.... 🙂

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Glad to hear that the x-ray has come back clear, Rosie.

It is my father's family that has the history in my case so if my genetic test comes back positive, the mutated gene will have come from him.

See you all in Joe's later this evening.

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Oh Steel, of all the rotten lousy stunts for the Boss to pull... Calam seconds the comments from all the other SR's - we'll be right beside you through this.

Had my penultimate Herceptin today, (can't believe its virtually a year since that started) and also, finally had results from that chest x-ray = clear (this being the one they took 2 weeks ago, when I had a persistent cough).

Massive (((hugs))) to everyone, I'll see you all for a few bevvies in Joe's later.

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Carole, can't say anything that hasn't been said. You say this storm is for you to ride alone. I don't think so!!!!!

You are an amazing person. You have given such support and inspiration to us all and I will never forget all your support and time when I was panicking about the chemo nonsense. I am with you in spirit.

Will join you for a little alcoholic beverage this evening (just to show solidarity or course....)

I'm sure you'll sleep well tonight Carole....cos the alcohol should help a smidgen!!! 😉

Great news, Val. Thank goodness they found the old mammograms in time.

Sleep well, Jane.

Excellent Val! Way to go! Wishaw General

Chuckle! Told you I'd be hanging about today. How selfish am I! NO DON'T ANSWER THAT. 😄

Oh, got some patchouli oil recently. Does anybody still wear it? (did you ever?). I am totally going hippy boho this summer.

Don't worry Jane, you can sleep. I'll be in an alcohol fuelled fug tonight. Then it's bye bye to that particular carcinogenic. Sob!!!! 😉

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

We,re amazing........You are one hell of a lady Carole, just by fighting this the way you do and thinking of us at the same time.

Sorry I've been AWOL again still got MIL with us but I have had a quick skim and sending lots of possitive vibes to Theresa, Linda, and all those waiting to hear news. Also Jacq and Val for today's appointments.

Its my bed time now but if you can't sleep and want to chat at 3am Carole, you have my mobile number. I'll be up from 02.45am. I've got my guns cocked and I'm ready for a good old gun slinging match.

Love you all xx

Re: Storm Riders/A Town Called Determination

Oh Carole, I am so sorry it was not better news for you. But you are a strong lady and you have a huge army of ladies around to give you some moral support. Which hospital do you attend for your treatment?
Theresa, I am sorry you are in limbo land and don't know all the answers yet. I hate the waiting game the most....so hope it is nothing to worry about and thinking of you too.
I had to return today to have ultrasound as something was showing up on my recent mammogram....on my good side. Had to then go for more mammograms....another wait and yet another one....but it was worth the wait.....THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.....they maanaged to locate my old mammograms this afternoon....odd eh?.....from 2002 and 2004 ( Goodness knows where the others have been filed).....and the image they could see is just "me" and showed up on the old scans.....so I can give a big sigh of relief.....and get on with my life again...
So all my energy is going on everyone here. Take care and hope there is more good news to read on here from now on.....love Val
