I won't be around for a few days.  Some of you know I lost my youngest brother unexpectedly in Feb. just before the retreat.  I talked to his wife last weekend and she sounds near a mental breakdown.  She has 4 7-11 stores to manage and sell plus a house.  She is clearly overwhelmed.  We are going to Las Vegas to see if we can help her.  We may only be able to be company and a sounding board but even that may help.  Our return is open-ended.  Taking Maggie with us.  First long trip with her.  Hope all goes well.  Not taking my computer.

Viola, I have shipped several quilts, via usps and ups and have never had a problem.  I think you'd be okay to ship any way you want.  I agree with Judy in Ohio that you don't necessarily need to raise the insurance on the pkg.

Hope you're feeling better.  Yes, the heat is a bugger and I'm already tired of it.

I usually go to UPS to have my stuff mail because I don't have boxes and so they put in the boxes but thanks for telling me the information but you know times have changed thanks people are stealing right and left and I think they're just doing it because they don't have anything else better to do

You and Bob have a safe trip to Las Vegas even if you don't say anything you are still there and showing her love and that you cared

How wonderful and kind of you to physically go there.  As strong as people may seem to be, there is a breaking point.  If you are able to help with the procedures with the stores and house, I'm sure that would be most appreciated.   But even simple, ordinary things like fixing meals or tidying up may seem overwhelming,  on top of everything else...so whatever you  can do would be excellent. 

Drive safely. 

Safe travels. I am sure that you being there for her will make a difference.

I hurt in my chest.

Viola, This caught my attention as it is one of the symptoms of Corona virus. You might want to call your Doctor or get tested.

Be safe, Mary in Orlando

Ok, be safe! <3 Thx for letting us know so we didn't worry!

I have scoliosis in my chest I know when I was diagnosed I said scoliosis is down in your lower back and this lady said no you can have it all over your body so I looked it up and sure enough she was right so whenever it's real hot is when it bothers me and when it's really cold is when it bothers me apparently my chest caves in and that's why it is hard for me to breathe and hurts
