March/April  2002

From the Editor…..

As we go to press, the latest e-mail news is that Bettie Johnson took a bad fall in her driveway and had to go to emergency. Apparently nothing is broken, but she is badly bruised and has a lump on the back of her head.

Another e-mail told of Vickie Lisenbee’s admission to the hospital. She is very seriously ill, but that is all we know at the present time. Vickie is a member of Unit 101 and our WN regional representative.

On a happier note, we are making plans to attend the WAVES National 2002 Convention in Portland, Oregon. This is an area of the country that I have never seen, and now my son, Robert, lives in Seattle, so that’s another reason to get there. Bob is our Webmaster, and if possible, he will drive down to Portland to meet some his “ladies.”

If Portland seems just too far, how about that Florida State Conference at Cypress Gardens, May 10-11? The Winter Haven area is filled with attractions at that time, including the Spring Flower Festival, an ice skating show, a magic show, boat rides, and the Water Ski Show.

After a year and a half without a dog, I couldn’t stand it anymore, so I adopted a lovely, little “Lady,” from the animal shelter. She is a Beagle/Dachshund mix, with a beautiful black and tan coat. We seem to have conquered her fears and mistrust from her past experiences, and she is just full of happy love now.
