Hey LC,

I posted on my "request for help" thread in another forum back in the Fall of 2018 when we were having a major health crisis. Soooooo much has happened. You and others played a huge role. I don't think we'd be together today if it wasn't for that other unnamed forum....not just because of the posts but because of the cyber acquaintances who reached out and became IRL (in real life) friends.

Looks like we're headed back to Florida in Nov. I'm still hoping we can have a mini informal MA gathering part 2. We had a fun time in 2016 with NED, LA, RHW and their significant others and DH/me. Orchid joined us by sending a Care Package of Hawaiian goodies which we opened while Facetiming her from the beach. It'd be fun if you and DocP could join us.

Welcome back....don't stay away so long. ---I know, I know...I've been gone years at a time, too. Had to contact the mods for how to log in cuz I forgot both my password and login name.

Again, thanks for all your help and good wishes.


PS Just checked and this is my 3330th post! My OCD for multiples of 5 still strikes occasionally.

PPS I just got an invitation to take a Marriageadvocates Survey because I'm a special guest. I deleted it but then realized it might be legitimate. Anyone know?

Good to hear. It sometimes takes women a while to reach the point where they are able to, age wise, I mean. Time to start the second, better half of your life!

By the end that’s where Daryl and I were. It was rather remarkable. To know we each had love for one another and were willing to stay no matter what those flaws and annoyances might be? The sense of security and freedom it brought? The contentment and acceptance? The feeling of love and being accepted? Miraculous!

Wise advice from someone who has recently been where you are now.

These affairs for the most part always follow the same cheater script.

Understand that your wife is just a typical cheater. There's nothing special or complicated about her eat all.

Exept it's happening to you

She has listed herself on tinder, and has had a couple of dates. He knows and again, was very amicable about it. She did say he seems fairly unconcerned about anything.

And, thats all folks

Hi Lil, waves

Sounds like your friend is trying to make the best of a difficult situation. Glad you were able to be there for her.

Hope all's well with you and Mr. Flick. Thanks for updating us on the latest details.

Take care,

Sending just in case you purchase this item. I had a call from Costco last week.

Costco & Kroger Frozen Berry recall: Public Healther Altert US Food &...rkland Signature Brand Three Berry Blend

Townsend Farms, Inc. recently announced a recall of frozen blackberries that may be linked to a Hepatitis A contamination. The frozen berry mixes were sold nationwide at retailers including Costco and Kroger. According to the FDA and CDC, there have been no reported illnesses due to this recall.

The Kroger recall came first and includes their Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley and Private Selection Frozen Blackberries. These products were also sold at Kroger affiliates including Ralph’s, Dillon’s, and Harris Teeter.

Recalled Kroger product codes include:

Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley, 48 oz. (Best By: 07-07-20; UPC: 0001111079120)
Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley, 16 oz. (Best By: 06-19-20; UPC: 0001111087808)
Private Selection Frozen Blackberries, 16 oz. (Best By: 06-19-20, 07-02-20; UPC: 0001111087809)
Berries sold at Costco were added to the recall on June 11. Costco’s Kirkland Signature Three Berry Blend was potentially affected by the contamination. Per Townsend Farms, these berries were only sold in California and Hawaii. The recall codes for this product can be found in the white box on the back of the 4-lb. bag and are as follows:

FEB1620, (A), (B), (C), (D), (E), (F), (G), or (H)
FEB1820, (A), (B), (C), or (D)
FEB2920, (A), (B), (C), or (D)
MAR0120, (A), (B), (C), or (D)
APR1920, (B), (C), or (D)
APR2020, (A), (B), (C), (D), (E), or (F)
APR2720, (A), (B), (C), (D), (E), (F), (G), or (H)
APR2820, (A), (B), (C), (D), (E), (F), (G), or (H)
MAY0220, (A), (B), (C), (D), (E), (F), (G), or (H)
MAY0420 (H)
The CDC urges those who purchased any of the recalled berries to discard them or return them to the store for a refund. The FDA recommends that consumers who have eaten the berries and haven’t previously received a Hepatitis A vaccination to contact their doctor or healthcare provider. According to the FDA, Hepatitis A virus can cause a liver infection that may not have apparent symptoms immediately. The virus can be spread through eating or drinking contaminated products and personal contact.

I don't want folks to panic, just be informed. I know of one sister who purchased this item but did it via a friend who has a Costco card so she was not contacted by Costco. Fortunately, her bag was not one of the recalled ones.

FYI: Costco has a website for recalls: Costco Recall Info

Hope this helps,
