2. ((((( HUG ))))))
:hug:

Word to the wise.... Be VERY selective about what you read in GD today. I found it kind of shocking and in extremely poor taste that that people are already asking, "What does this mean for the Bush Administration?"

7. Let us know when you hear back!
My cousin's husband arrived in London TODAY. He's fine, as is his sister, who lives and works in the area. But he really felt bad when he talked to a student who was there on a school trip and all excited about going. He thought the parents would be frantic with worry.

9. Yes, of course.
Just talked to my mom. She's not very worried... she's just going to wait and see.

8. hang in there
:hug: :hug: :hug:

They're probably all right; just in shock like the rest of us. Phone lines in and out of DC were bumfuzzled for hours and hours on 9/11. Are any of them on the Internet? Sometimes that works better than phone.

11. You got one buddy.
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 03:38 PM by Botany
I have big shoulders and if you need to rest your head there for a spell
please do ....... it would be an honor for me to help you.

This is not about repub vs demo or old vs young or gay vs straight
the bombings in London are just wrong and people hurt ......
just like the families in Iraq who see this daily or a soldier's family who
answer the door to see an officer there with news about one of their own.

If I knew what to do,
I would do it.
If I knew what to say,
I would say it.
If I just knew what to do.

To all of our friends in and around London :patriot: + :cry:

20. Oh, Botany...
It's not about "doing" anything, except just being there.
You are a treasure. :hug:

All the people in our London office are fine. *whew*

I wasn't on the thread last night because I had to babysit the nieces and didn't want to get on my sis's computer (she's had virus problems). We heard on the radio while she was driving me to work. Asked her to give the girls extra hugs and kisses today.

See you all on the thread tonight. It's good to be back.
