Happy Easter

Happy Easter (belated) one and all

Not about much as Nicks sister is having Chemo for her Cancer of the throat and gut and, if the tumours shrink enough she gets surgery - if not, no surgery

and we got the worst sort of Easter Sunday call - his eldest brother Mick had a stroke, is in Intensive Care for 8 or 9 days when they shall know more

Not a great Easter Holidays and I hope no others have been struck by the bad news - packing for family visits so not about much for a few weeks

Re: Happy Easter

Well things are getting much better - I have taken paints with me and just posted some pics of my recent Art or or even

Nicks baby sister (68) started Chemo on Monday and his eldest brother 82 (who's twin lives in Australia and also felt unwell - spooky) ... is recovering still in ICU but now has some speech back his wife said "he is made of sterner stuff and will FIGHT forward ... as he did when blown up in Ireland and Iraq and then broke his back when his horse reared in the road to Hyde Park and he fell back on a Cannon he was Sgt Major of the Kings Troop

Our Friend Barry started his Radiotherapy for his C on Monday and today is his 4th day fingers crossed he stays felling well and recovers again

I have been making lots of cards even took a friend to a BSJA Show, as he wanted to know how to get shots of "horses jumping" Funny what a small world it is I met some great riders and walked over to stroke their magnificent horses and offer some shots by email, and one is the grown up daughter of an good friend and another the son of another great old horsey SJ buddy ... they only recognized my name ... and I have an invite to take photos of stallions ; mares and foals in May at a terrific STUD so that is something great to look forward too

I hope life is fun and being good to you all

Re: Happy Easter

Most distressing news re Nick's sister and brother, Chevvy. I'm hoping by now that both will have had some treatments with positive outcomes. You have certainly had more than your fair share of adverse health issues within your circle.

Sorry for having missed this thread earlier, I have been a bit distracted over the past few weeks (no excuse).
