Mimi, you are one of the greatest treasures of this site, and you should tell your beloved maman how much her gifted child is also loved , even by perfect strangers. Avec mes meilleurs sentiments et compliments.
Please excuse terrible French. For those of you who don't know, Mimi is a professional French to English (or /and vice versa) translator, She's a knock-out mind, in either language.
I've noticed the NFL players have been wearing pink and there's been pink on the fields lately in support of the fight against breast cancer. I wish I could remember what player it was, but one, when asked if he minded wearing pink, said, "No. We got mothers and sisters and daughters and grandmothers, too."
A friend of mine has just gotten through radiation and chemo for Stage three of breast cancer. The doctors are making optimistic noises.
Bump! For the 2010 edition. Of course I will be there dressed in pink (God I hate this colour).
Mom's doing great, the hair not so good...It's not growing godammit!!! She finished her chemo and radiotherapy in February (on my birthday, what a great gift, don't you think!) she should have hair down her butt by now...don't you think?
If you want to make a donation PM me, I'll walk you through!
Thanks for the reminder Mimi. There are local events where I am the first weekend in October, and Mrs. T and I are going to participate. The timing is great because we leave for DC later in the week for our annual Capitals/Ovie pilgrimage to the Verizon Center temple. Taking online courses will allow for a much longer trip than in the past. Surely I can keep up with my class assignments, fantasy leagues, and blogs/fansites posting on the road.
