Welcome to my attempt at keeping the masses up to date

Please note: my blog is full of my thoughts, opinions (which are not always "right"), random things relating to my family and friends and the occasional Cut and Paste news.... whatever is important to me. I ramble on from time to time (that's the St. Sauveur in me) and at the end of whatever I wrote you may question what on earth I was thinking or it may not even make sense to you.....sorry....I warned you. You may not always like what you read (I do have an insane case of "Potty Mouth" which I try to hide on here, but it won't always happen) or what you see, but we all have our own opinions on things. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. I do ask that you please leave your name so I know who I'm responding to. If you want to email me privately you may do so at Thanks

Walk for Love at Shriners Hospital in Springfield Mass

It's always a great day at Shriners Hospital! And yesterday was even more exciting than usual. 

Queen Taylor dazzled the crowd and I attempted to not trip over my tongue while fighting off tears as I told an enormous crowd of people our story.
But before the stage fright began, we had tons of fun goofing off with our clown friends.
And Ana...

And Storm Troopers.....

And puppies from K-9s for Kids, Inc
And a gigantic rabbit, and huge porcupine, snakes and other crazy critters at the petting zoo....

And hanging with our fellow Shriners Hospital Patient Ambassador Jacob Ellinger
This is the link to his speech

And LOSNA friends

It was a great morning had by all :)
Then it came time for the stage fright ;-)

My Mom caught it on video but before I even saw it, I found out it had already made it's debut on YouTube thanks to Kerry O'Connor. And as if it wasn't hard enough to fight the tears saying it, his thanks to me at the end crushed me. 

I can't even describe how happy I was to be able to be a part of yesterday's Walk for Love event and how grateful I am to be a part of the Shriners Hospitals family.

Thank you Bernadette, Lee and Karen for having faith in me to speak on behalf of the Hospital.

Thanks to the Melha Clown crew especially Fix It, Railz, Doc and Joey and LOSNA Lady Maureen for the extra attention and love you shared with us. 

And thank you Shriners for all that you do!
