    We are all unique yet we have had the shared experience of being in a harmful cult - too true.

    This alone makes for a common bond which is a perfect place to start a true friendship - I hope so, thank you.

    Hey 3rdgen, I am so jealous! I want to meet up w/all too!

    I have been catching up on life after the Borg & a new job too! 3 years of taxes, organizing drawers, entering QuickBooks, Quicken.... and now, my fave... covering my two couches! YAY!! (no time to do it while in, haha, spinning the hamster wheel is tooooo much!)

    Hubby has been hard at it too...

    Pretty soon we just may be able to catch a day & meet up for lunch? Maybe meet half way?

    Take care!

    I am going to PM you ;-)

    cha ching, With more notice we might have had a chance to expand our meet-up. Next time the flippers come through it would be great to let the others we know in NorCal know and try to make it bigger.

    This time had to be brief because after visiting mom they drove to another town about 100 mi away to have dinner with flipper Jr. The day was packed and kinda stressful dealing with old man flipper and the rather sad state his mother is in.

    Thanks for taking the time to write your post out for us to read. I felt like I was there.

    And it is lovely that you will be checking in on Flippers mom, older people love visits and it is so good for them!

    Hi Millie, as I get older my own mortality is staring me in the face. I can't imagine how sad and lonely it would be in a rest home run by the State. I feel happier visiting mamma flipper than I ever did preaching as a Jdub.
