HAVE: Regrets

In preparation for my first trip out of town in over a year (I had a total knee replacement last year), I readied my car in prepration for tomorrow's trip: wash and wax, vacuum, check the oil and tires, etc. Then, upon arriving home just now with three large containers of Top/Haggen's chicken Caesar salad in tow, I am informed that a family member and son are in the midst of a family crisis. Nothing life-threatening, just something that is going to take lots of resources on my part: $, mentally and emotionally. So that is what I will be doing this weekend.

I was so looking forward to seeing everyone! After the last five years of working weekends, I was finally looking forward to having just *one* free for a plant exchange!

Guess it will have to be the next one :-(

Have fun!

Hi Cathy, I am so sorry you can't make it. It would have been nice to see you again. You were the one that gave me Brunnera Jack Frost at a plant trade. That has become one of my favorite plants. I hope your family emergency is resolved quickly. See you at the next trade. Karen

RE: HAVE: Regrets

Well we will certainly miss you as well as the chicken Caesar salad!
--Darn! I so wanted you to see how well all your plants have done so well in my garden.
But I do hope your family will be doing well with your help.
Take care.

But you do know what this means don't you?
We will all have to pack up and come to visit YOU in YOUR garden next!

Hope your family crisis resolves quickly, and hope to see you at a Fall swap!
