Geez, Lisa--how to make a person cry and laugh at the same time. YOU are a pisser--in the best sense of the word!

Who needs a voice when you have such a fabulous sense of humor and gift of writing, eyes that sparkle and a smile that says it all! P.S.I pullmy cheeks back every morning to remember what I looked like when I WAS 16!

You have always been a great storyteller, Lisa. I don't think I ever heard about the pissers before, but good for you for not letting that outrageous act go unanswered!! I remember when you were a guest speaker at the Geneva mall Barnes & Noble on the popular subject of feng shui back in the day. Speaking of karma, the good kind, believe it or not I went today with a friend to the Algonquin Public Library to view your ceiling mural. (This was my first time to see it.) I love how the lighting changes to evoke different times of the day, e.g. pinkish for sunset. The mural has such a soft, soothing quality to it. My friend asked whether you signed it. I said I would have to ask since I couldn't tell. What a special charm it provides to that charming place. Love, Sandy

Red lipstick, eh? You are such a rebel....and I LOVE it!

You DO look like yourself, Lisa. I think that short story needs to set up a Skype Love call soon. We all want to talk with you, and it would be the perfect way to talk all at once (like we always do!!).

Laughing and crying all in the same post is what I'm doing too. Thank you for your continued honesty. I check at least twice a day for an update and it makes me so happy when I see a new one.

Love to your whole family.

So very sweet, moving, funny, and wonderful! Thank
you, Lisa!!! Love, Jan

I loved the story too. Sometimes getting even is OK - I used to chase kids several blocks if they smashed my children's pumpkins. I knew if I ever caught them I knock the ____ out of them! Ha! Ha! Good thing I don't run very fast. Your picture on skype was great. You look like Lisa to me -- Take care -- Love -- Kathy

That story defines the Lisa I remember. Let's take a walk in the snow.. It could never beat you. You learned to live with it. Love you Marybess


Hey Seestah,

Looooved the lipstick tale, that's a great story! Bummer my ancient, university-issue budget computer doesn't have a camera so we could skype with visuals, but I can still skype using typing.

Had a great ride with Sta-Low yesterday, she was all frisky from the snow. My riding pal, Julia, came back too, so it was nice to be back to the old routine.

love, hugs,


Joe Redford

All I can say is "Awww"... I use Skype everyday.
