Kris,

I too understand the not liking it but accepting what ever it is and being at peace with it.  We don't have to like it, but we have no choice but to accept that it is what it is.   Hoping for better news soon.

Hugs,
Darla

I agree with the guys.  No way you will be off that long.  smile

Good luck with the surgery Lainy.  I will be thinking good thoughts for you.

Hugs,

Well said.  What an inspiring post.  We should all heed your advice.  I look forward to the time when you are once again taking walks with your dad and listening to those funny stories. 

My best to you and your family.

Aiste,  It sounds like dad is doing well.  He seems to have a great attitude and sense of humor.   I'm hoping each day will continue to get even better.

Pat,   I totally agree.    When you get that good news you need to share it with others.   That good news brings hope to others, too and that is a good thing.

Nancy,

I too am happy to see you back, but  sad and confused about what is going on with Ron.   I 'm hoping for the best for you both  on this part of the journey.   Please update us as you can.

Hugs,
Darla

Interesting discussion.  I'm coming from the other side on this.  I sometimes hesitate to post when someone is successful and doing well as my husband was not and I don't want to discourage those who are.  I guess we all learn from each other and have to keep it all in perspective.   All posts both positive and negative are important and add to the knowledge on the site.  Where would we be with them. 

Hugs,
Darla

Hi Aiste,

Just want to welcome you and tell you that my husbands father was originally from Lithuania.  I think he and his sister did  go back one time for a visit.   

Glad you found us and are comfortable here..  Stick around and you will find out how helpful and supportive the people on this board are.

Judith,

I agree with the others.  This can not and will not happen!  I'm hoping it is some sort of grave misunderstanding that will be sorted out shortly.    You two want, need & deserve to be together right now.   Hoping to hear from you soon that your wishes have been met. 

Please let us know how things are going and know that we are all here to help and support you in any way that we can.

Hugs,
Darla

I  Googled and yes it does bring back a lot of memories.   I still like Brady Street. but am one of those "I remember when" people.  Always appreciating  and fondly remembering the past. 

Glad you enjoyed dinner and I really like the other Teddy's sentiment's on the Calamari.  smile

My sister & her hubby moved from Madison to Shorewood when their daughter was young.  Wanted a safe area with good schools and it was either Shorewood or Tosa back then.   Lily is now  24 and working and  living in the twin cities with her boyfriend, but they are still in Shorewood.  They  love it there.  My oldest son & his wife have lived in Milwaukee for a long time also.  They are  now in the Sherman Park area.  They too love living and working in Milwaukee.  Have to admit that although I enjoy  going down there, I would not want to live there.  smile

Since my son & daughter-in-law live in Milwaukee and my sister and her husband in Shorewood, I am some what familiar with Brady Street and Glorioso's Market.   It has been a Milwaukee institution for many years.  A really great place.

Hope you enjoyed your Chinese and visit.
