The Phoenix

 So....It was not quite a nervous breakdown...rather a breakdown of other sorts.  My back went out.! My body said STOP and in to the bed I went...twice!!!

My EXD and my USB and my VGA all broke...forever ...it seemed.
Really, I do not know which was worse...
But, lucky me has a genius of a daughter and her genius boyfriend..tonight my computer and I are back..
 TBTG for my sanity and..my blogging therapy..

Below we have my dear man relaxing in the lovely Charlotte weather after an amazing fundraiser for himself.  250 people came out to hear the Irish band and support Mr.O'Quilts.  He was able to play the piano in his wheelchair and enjoy the night.  It was the best all around!!!
 Mr.O'Quilts is totally downstairs now.  My daughter and her man moved his whole office into his downstairs room..which is why my computer moved here...Idea thanks to Sherry!!!  Thank you Sherry.
 Thank you Terri for the cute Valentine's heart.
 Thank you Ellen for all the wonderful goodies to make my broken heart sing.  Can you believe it...the adorable pincushion alone would have put me over the moon.
  You notice the chocolate...( between you and me...there were also M&M's)....gone..I do not know where!!!!  Do not ask ...please!!.
And the greatest of these is love...given to me by my girl Emily...my very favorite flower.
With gratitude, I am back.
