The TVM - Christmas card exchange signup!!111

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Calma is out of hospital but is in a rehab facility to get her strength back.
Still having a bit of trouble with her kidneys but getting better day by day.
Went over to see her when she got transfered with her youngest and baby man.
The place she is in is really nice and she says the food is much better.
She had her first PT yesterday and says they found muscles she didn't know she had but it went well.
She is quite anxious to get back to normal and misses talked with you all alot.

Thank you so much for the update, Sable! I'm glad she's got better food, at least. Can't wait to see her back on here!

Wow! :Q I had no idea about Calma.

That's what happens when you can't check in for a few days.

Glad to hear she's better. Think I'll send a get well card along with her Christmas card.

She'll get it if I send it to her home, right?

For a transition to next month....

Heading out today to see Calma with her baby man. We are getting care training for when she can come home.
She is still hurting pretty bad and I am hoping what they are doing with her kidney problem will ease that pain.
I will give her hugs from you all.

Ha ha. Rhwen's card is never maxed out. :D :D

I will check on Iris. I think she's been pretty busy/harried the past few weeks.


Ok...what do we need for the party???

Wow! I just got back from the city - I can confirm that Harry Potter & The Cursed Child is a masterpiece of modern theater! Incredible - not only a wonderful and engaging storyline, intricate characters and beautiful nods to the original series, but a truly magical score, and special effects that left me wide-eyed with amazement! I encourage everyone to go see it!

Sent out my cards today.
As I said I am making my own this year so please forgive the rustic/elementary look of them.
I has been a long time since I made my own cards.
But be assured they were made with love.

Haha, don't worry about that! I feel like mine look pretty rustic too - I tried to do a Father Christmas Letters style font. I hope you like them!

I can only afford to send 3. Very expensive to send O/S these days. (and still paying Iceland off.) Am happy to furnish other with e-cards if they want?

Wow, Thor, you saw The Cursed Child? In NYC I presume? It is coming to Melbourne soon but I can't afford it as I'd have to fly down and stay overnight + the two tickets in seats that can see the stage. :( Not to mention, it is already sold out I think.

An E-card is fine for me - I don't know if you have the email address that I use these days?

Yes, it was in NYC - It is very expensive, however, ridiculously so; all Broadway shows are, these days. It's really unfortunate.

She wants Philly Steak and cheese pizza. Said so today when I told her a party was in the works.
