Laura I never heard of Wendy Welder before. Another great role model! Thanks for telling us about her. So now we have choices. And we won't even need a wardrobe change, got that bandana handy?
ABOUT WENDY
Size: Approximately 10 ft. high, 5 ft. wide
Weight: Never ask a woman how much she weighs!
Location: Columbia Waterfront Trail, one-mile east of the I-5 bridge.
Cost: $70,000
Artists: Women Who Weld
Sponsors: City of Vancouver & Vancouver National Historic Reserve Trust

The stainless steel sculpture is shown in work clothes proudly donning a red glass polka dot scarf. She is seen stepping from the home to the industrial work world and into the future, crossing the dam that powered the shipyards. Wendy is surrounded by other local symbols of the era which help celebrate the spirit and legacy of the women of WWII.
Wendy was designed by and is being created by a group of local artists known as Women Who Weld.

Suz you said that so nicely. I agree. Girl Power all my new sisters!

No body here but us chickens. Work, you looking for migrant workers? Hmmm, well that is an interesting idea. Kind of a combined working workshop/rally.

Who's heading South for the winter? Brad and I are going to Santa Rosa Beach Florida for the forums Can Opener 08 at Topsails.

Hey now there is an idea - you bring your tool boxes and I will put you all to work - I know You can fix water heaters and vickie fixes fans - so I am all set in that area - now if there is someone that could take over for Peter and get the cabinets made, the plumbing all done and install the AC I will be ready to go and will see you in Santa Rosa!!

National Geographic picture of flamingoes

Brad just pointed out a great shot of a flock of flamingos that was in the October issue of NG. Pay attention to the shape of the group! Very cool picture. Should be in the Inquirer or the Globe, ...almost unbelievable. Hi-Res wallpaper available for download on their site too. It is much better viewed large. Click for larger.

How is your autumn going gals? Time to bring out that firewood again and have a nice chat.

Wish you were all gathered around the campfire in my backyard. I am stressed and having the sisterhood in my "hood" would really be welcomed right about now. Had to put my dad into the hospital in Cleveland for evaluation. From there I will be finding a nursing home for his care. He has had a really rough time. Making these decisions for them is terribly hard.
Hope that all of my silver sisters are doing much better than that in this nice Fall weather!

Here's a hug Lou! I'm so sorry. I know you and Larry and your family did/and are doing your best by your dad, above and beyond what many could/would do in the same situation. Feel supported!

Laura that would be a hoot if you could go to Topsails in January. There's a pool... And that goes for you too Steph, aka the other other mermaid.

Lou I am so sorry that your father is having such a rough time. You and Larry have been there for him and your mom and I know they have had the best care you two could give. It must be a very difficult time for you. Wish we were all there now at your campfire. Maybe we can all get this fire blazing and share in good cheer and friendship together.

It's January 4th-6th. I went last time and it is a very nice park. There is a WBCCI caravan to the keys in February and the Florida State Rally in February too and that's a nice rally in Sarasota. Lots to do and there are Airstream parks down there too. Sure beats Michigan weather in January.

Sue -- This sounds great -- easy, fun, tasty -- all the requirements of great campfire food! Would love to hear any more ideas like this one. Thanks for sharing it!!

After they are baked & lightly browned, remove from the stick, dunk in melted butter/marg. and roll in cinnamon & sugar mixture. Yummy! (A small table top grill works great and may be safer for younger children)

Hi Lou -- Sorry to hear about the rough days you're having now. Your father is lucky to have you there for him, and I know you're doing your best. I'll be thinking of you, and I hope that you can enjoy some peaceful fall scenery too along the way.

-Jamie

So many of us are now caring for those who brought us to this place in our lives. Our thoughts are with you Lou, and, as Paula says, your presence and caring are beyond value. Just remember to take time for yourself, even if it means just sitting in your silver cocoon and dreaming about towing it to sunnier climes--and times!

I'm so sorry to hear of your trials Lou. I know from personal experience this is not an easy time for you and Larry. Don't forget this is a virtual campfire - all you need to do is look around. See, all your Silver Sisters are right here for you.

Take care Lou and know you are in our thoughts,

sue

Thanks, Sisters!

Thanks to all of my Silver Sisters for the moral support. It is a good time to have all of your thoughts and prayers. My dad is doing ok in the nursing home, but he thinks he is going to get to go home, and he is not. My mom can no longer care for him and his care is physically exhausting for Larry and I. We have difficulty lifting him and bathing him etc. So he is stuck. We have been going to see him 3-4 times a week and making sure that his care is ok. Hard to be there all the time. Maybe he will get used to it. The northern Ohio bunch got together for a little mini-rally down by Columbus and Larry packed up the trailer and we went! That was great! We really needed the time to ourselves. Thanks to my daughter, Loren, watching over my mom, we were able to leave on Fri. and we got back this evening. Wow! The leaves are beautiful now!!! By next weekend they will be mostly down! How are the fall leaves where the rest of you are sitting by the fire???
