A year since you have become a member of our family!!! Yeah!!! You are an important part of many lives now, hope you know that. I know that this site is there for many, and through it all WE have become close, as I said a family. One that I love and care for so much.

May the next year be a better more fulfilling one for you. You are sure a great addition to all of us, always there, giving your love and support, understanding and caring. Thank you for all that hon.

Happy forum-birthday, (((( lisalou ))))!!!!
Thank you for being part of this site as well! I've also found it an invaluable resource in getting to manage my own depression better.
( You're definitely someone that I would admit to liking. As long as there weren't any other Welsh people close enough to hear me, of course! Admitting to liking an English person could get me into serious trouble with the Welshness Police! :wink: )
Seriously though, hope your next year is a good, fulfilling one for you!!!! :)

Thanks (((( lisalou ))))! :) I choose to believe that you are, in fact, Welsh if you go back far enough in your family tree. That way I can think of you as a friend without drawing the suspicion of the Welshness Police. ( And, I think that I'm already viewed with a certain amount of suspicion by them as my Father was born in Eng...I mean, the country to the right of Wales, and I've never sung in a male-voice choir! :shock: :wink: )
Our land is certainly " well-watered " at the moment! The Ryder Cup golf event started in South Wales yesterday and the heavens opened!!!! From what I hear they had to suspend play several times yesterday because the rain was bucketing down so much! :roll: :wink:

Geesh.... what's with everyone getting rain but me? Less than an inch of rain in over two months. My green grass is now brown and hiding.

Rain 'suppose' to happen today. Fingers, toes, eyes, and anything crossable is done now.

Congratulations Lisa.

I haven't been on-line for a bit so I am also sorry that I wasn't able to congratulate you on your special day.

I have come and been away from the forums for a while now so I am not sure just how long I have actually been posting.

You are certainly one of the precious members of the forum.

So glad that I am getting the chance to know you, and appreciate the help that you give others.
Monty
