Big Congrats on 11 months...Love the new star btw. Glad you enjoyed Cherokee casino. I went there when I retired to celebrate my retirement plus the trip happened to be on my birthday. I did not like the group/bus trip there: it took 6.5 hrs and we went into Tenn before we went to Cherokee. Cherokee is the nearest casino to me--about 2.5 hrs from where I live. I still plan to go to Vegas (on my bucket list!!) to celebrate my retirement and now to celebrate quitting smoking. I just don't want to go by myself: peeps are so bad. I may have to breakdown and go alone if I really want to go. I don't want to disappear in the desert never to be seen again...be an unsolved mystery!!stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye I watch too many real life crime shows about serial killers and everything on ID channel.

Glad you enjoyed your trip to Cherokee. I am still holding out for Vegas now.

One more month...no more stars for you: your key awaits. Molly and I eagerly awaiting your arrival to the Clubhouse. Hope the month will not be too long for you. We got the light on for you.relaxed


Freedom since 30 July 2018...How Sweet it is!!!

Hey Dennis congrats man, time goes by quick. The site is so different now without the mods being on here, they jus post at the beginning of each month and then their gone, so i think its way harder for new people to make it.. I see a lot of new people sign up and then disappear, even people that have been helped from here dont really spend time talking to others on how to make it, its way different..

Hey Overdoz, glad to see your post. You are right about this site changing. I’m not getting email notifications anymore when someone posts to me. I checked my settings and they are right. Don’t know what is up with that. Also, every time I go to something else on my phone, the forum is logging me out. This all just started about three weeks ago. Have you been having problems like that?

Happy eleven months to you! Next stop......the Clubhouse!

I get notifications. I dont see you guys from the October group posting much to the newbies, and the moderators are totally gone. So its the wild west here, i dont post much cause there are a lot of people freaking out on here with no direction, its real sad.. I make it streaks at a time, 3 weeks, a week i keep trying

The Clubhouse awaits. You should all be proud of yourselves. This is a truly incredible accomplishment. 

It's time to start key shopping! wink



P.S. I apologize for my absence the past few weeks. I've been dealing with diminishing eyesight due to cataracts, as well as increasing frustration. I was unable to get surgery scheduled until this fall. I haven't been able to drive since the middle of March. Argh. My first surgery is next month. So the end is in sight (bad pun).

Hi Andrea and thanks for the congrats to us all, can't believe a year is so close, so excited.  So sorry you're dealing with cataracts right now and that you can't get them removed til next month, I'm sure that is frustrating for you.  My daughter got a job as a hostess and been working for the past 2 mos. it's strange that my baby has her first job and is a junior in HS time goes by way too fast for sure. How's Amanda doing is she still in college?  Don't come here as often as I should but try to check in every couple weeks or so.  Hope this message finds you well.  (((Hugs)))
