  1. No... I hope to see it soon, somewhere... GG
  2. What an afternoon-evening!! Turner Classic Movies had four terrific movies one after another... 1) Peyton Place (1957) Lana Turner/Diane Varsi 2) Picnic (1957) Wm Holden/Kim Novak/Cliff Robertson 3) East of Eden (1955) James Dean/Julie Harris 4) Kings Row (1942) Robt Cummings/Ronald Reagan/Ann Sheridan. All excellent... GG r
  3. Welcome Alec... I love "conversion" stories... Although I was baptized at 8 yrs old, like so very many others I had my own conversion, and I can still remember the feeling as if it was yesterday... and I'm 80 yrs old. Mine was when I was a 17 yr old early morning Seminary student... that year we were studying the BofM. When we got to Moroni chapter 10.4, that verse really impacted me, and I answered by going to a quiet place, kneeling down and fervently praying to know if the Book was true... I was answered with a spiritual witness so strong I can still feel it today... that witness saw me through many a year, including my inactive years from age 20 to age 55 when I finally heeded the promptings of the Spirit and reactivated, attending Church for the first time in 35 years... and I've never looked back... now I'm 80 and coming to the end of my sojourn here... but I face my future without fear, and with peace of heart... Again, welcome... lots of good people here... I think you'll like it... from the beach... GG
  4. Guess I'll post to see what symbol I get... GG
  5. These 2 moms need to be spayed ASAP... there are some clinics that offer low-cost spaying... their poor little bodies must be worn out. And the shelters/pounds are over-run with unwanted litters/kitties... breaks my heart... GG
  6. One of my favorites... a wonderful family friendly film... "Last of the Dogmen" from 1995... starring Tom Beringer and Barbara Hershey... She is an anthropologist, specializing in Native American culture, on a dig in the wild and rugged Montana Oxbow region... He is a bounty hunter tracking some escaped convicts... the two cross paths... they join forces when they discover descendants of the "Dogmen", an elite Native American fighting force, active 120 years earlier... an exciting tale, beautifully filmed in spectacular landscapes.. GG
  7. Susie-girl and I have been blessed and are doing quite well... the best to you... GG
  8. A Quiet Place is one of my favorites... you mean there's a sequel? GG
  9. The local shelter probably has too many little kitties just waiting for good homes... My wonderful cats have all been from the shelter... First, Charlie, who I had for 10 years... then 2nd, Bob, who I also had for almost 10 years... and now, Susie, a beautiful, smart, loving companion I've had for about 6 months... GG
  10. Why don't you just have the momma cat spayed... then you don't have to worry about future kittens...GG
  11. I've heard it taught that the great work of the millennium will be the temple ordinances... GG
  12. Oh my, fether, this is a difficult one, but not impossible... there is a person who posts here that is a Family Therapist with a focus in this area... her name is Blue Dreams... you may have seen some of her posts... you may want to PM her and ask her for some suggestions on books and other resources...

    Hello

    Yes Brooklyn, I always enjoy hearing about the people posting here... I'm the proverbial old woman, 80 yrs old, living with my cat... in a cottage on the central Oregon coast. Lately I've become so arthritic in my hands I can't draw or paint like I used to and that has been a loss to me... But I'm truly blessed in so many ways in spite of being alone... my Lincoln City ward is wonderful... GG
  14. That was a blessing... when I lost my mom. one of the comforts I had was remembering the day we knelt around the altar in SLC temple as we were sealed as an eternal family... I was 14 and my sis was 17, and it was Oct 1955 gen conf,,, I love knowing we are sealed. GG
  15. Prayers continuing, rtm, and am encouraged... hope you are... blessings. GG
  16. I hope you'll put your name on the nearest temple prayer roll... and my prayer just went forward, that you will have the courage to face whatever comes... GG
  17. This is "Pro-Day" at BYU Provo... representatives/coaches from all the major NFL teams have gathered on the Indoor Practice Field at BYU to watch the various BYU athletes, including Zac Wilson who is throwing a 60-throw program developed for today's exhibition by Zac and John Beck (who is there with Zac). This is Zac's time to show what he can do... so far he's been terrific... I'm so proud of BYU campus... the indoor field facility is absolutely beautiful. Zac is a handsome young man, baby-face notwithstanding... Anyway, all these visitors must surely see how first-rate the facilities are... GG
  18. During the Sesquicentennial my husband and I joined the official Wagon Train (that had started in Winter Quarters) in Sutherland, Nebraska and rode with them for a day... we got up early in the morning and had breakfast with them (a real western style with flapjacks, etc)... then rode in a covered wagon belonging to a couple from Iowa that had a team of huge draft horses named Bonnie and Clyde... we dressed in authentic clothing... As the train was ready to get under way, the trail leader cried out... Wagons, Ho!!... and off we went. I admit it sent chills in me because I could just feel how it must have been... as we travelled across the Nebraska prairie, I jumped down and walked beside the wagon for a ways... it was an experience I, and my non-LDS husband, remembered through the years... its hard to relate just how I felt, but I now understand and view the history much differently than before this experience... we stopped out on a farmer's land at a child's gravesite that the family had found and taken care of for generations. We gathered around the grave and one of the men offered a prayer, dedicating the site... it was very moving... As the wagon train travelled across the prairie, homeowners opened up their fences to allow us to travel through... GG
  19. The 100 Foot Journey was great... GG
  20. The bell flowers were some of my favorites... GG
