Dear M'Lou, et al!
I owe you personally, and all who have sent me "best wishes for a
speedy recovery" a deep debt of gratitude. I thought for a few days
that I was 'alone' but suprises galore, the letters came pouring in.
went for an update MRI two days ago and will find out how my
"Degenerative Bone Disease" is fairing. It ain't fun, trust me!
I am off to Lloydminster, Alberta, April 13th - 22nd on a 'setting
training session'. Now I going to use a wheel chair to get myself
around this very large Toronto airport. Schlepping suitcases and
tools is now a bit beyond me. I am then upon my return, going to a
be guest speaker with the "Bench Conference" on April 27 - 30th. Drop
by and say "Hello" at my booth somewhere with the other exhibitors at
the "Adams Mark Hotel" in Buffalo, NY. My topic of my TWO, two hour
seminars is "Art Deco, Cut-Down Setting", this topic is one of my
favourites. You will see up close how easy it can be applied. I have
also prepared many series of rings to show how it prepared..(hint)
no bead-setting or raising of beads, for this style of setting work!
So the moral of all of this medical stuff, "nothing is going to get
me down!" When I get back, I resolve to be MORE ACTIVE on
Orchid..hugs to you all...Gerry!...:>)
