Forsyth is just about 3/4 hr south of Atlanta, so the drive wouldn't be too bad.  Very nice if it can happen...

Wow!!  This is sounding more fun by the minute!!  Except if you have me coming with Laura, I don't have a car, she would have to drive!!  Never been to Nashville either!!  LOL.... I am flying into Atlanta at the end of March... My birthday is on the first of April!!  and I am staying with my friends in Atlanta for a short week.  maybe longer.  YOU girls say when... and I will be there... as long as Laura picks me up!!  We need a name for our gathering!!  Like, "Triple Trouble Weekend"  LOL. 
Something like that!!  I wanted to go see my friends for my 50th, and meeting you girls would be great too!!

This Nashville gathering is sounding better and better!  Brie, I can definitely pick you up.  Atlanta (and anybody near here!) girls, we can carpool (I have a Suburban with lots of room).  The only timing issue I have is my son's Spring Break week starts on April 2, so if we could do something that last week of March, I can make it.

As it stands right now, I am coming in that Wed...  I think it is March 30th or so.  Maybe that Thursday?  March 31st??  Tentative??  What do you all think??
I know I am spending my Birthday... on the First with my friends in Atlanta... but, it is all up to them at that point... I am easy...

I loaded another pic up here!  The other one came out blurry.  This pic was at my 30th reunion and right before I found out I had breast cancer.  I look back now, and I wasn't quite my perky self then.  I remember leaving the party early and wondering why I was so tired.  I haven't taken pics of myself since then.  I loved my read hair.  All those years boys picked on me about it... now, they love it.  Boys to men.  Now, I am bald.  I miss brushing my hair so much.  I know it will grow back, but does anyone know of a quicker method... miracle grow for hair or something???

PS... I am going to get a map, like for what they put up in school rooms, and I am going to start pin pointing where everyone lives... It should be fun to do.  My first week of work went easy enough... and thanks for the support!

Imankikar and any other from bay area. Welcome. Iman, I tried to pm you and it wouldn't go thru. Have you been contacted yet? If not send me your email address thru a private msg. and I'll get you added to our local mailing list. We last met in June but it has been pretty random and sporadic this past year.
Any others from the bay area, follow suit.

If you feel comfortable, tell us a little about yourself... about your Diagnosis and know you are not alone.

Hi Juanita,
I am originally from Chicago. I was born and raised there but moved to TN a long time ago.
Paris is in the northwest corner of TN....very close to the southwestern edge of KY.

Hey Brie! 
 
I thought I might do the same!  Make sure you get one with Canada on it too!  I will be there in Nova Scotia, Halifax!
So glad you had a good week at work! We are a special breed, hard to keep us down!
