A Great Article

Hi Everyone -
 
In the Sunday (Nov 30) Seattle Times Newspaper,  "Pacific Northwest" magazine section, page 30, titled "Fantasies Fulfilled" is a great article on Steve Flume's afterlife from UAL. Steve is a master carpenter and does beautiful work, as pictured in this article. Way to go Steve.
 
You see there is "good news" stories out there.
 
Anyone in the Sea area, of course, interested in getting together to play some games occasionally, right now we're playing Mexican Dominoes, give Annie Greig a call 206-285-8502.
 
I'm heading to Ariz to warm up for a wk. and  I'm sure I'll be shuffling a few decks of cards.   
 
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying those leftovers     Jane


Congratulations Steve Flume

Happy Thanksgiving

turkeyday Just wanted to give my thanks for all of my UAL friends both retired and still spending their time in the sky's
  We have seen a lot of our friends pass on, deal with health complications and this country's and our economic future seem like never ending bad news.
This is the time to think of all the good things we all have and share them with our friends and family.
I would like to give a special thanks to those of you that have taken the time to either post or send me things to post on our blog. SeaBudsChatter. I was pleased by the number of resposnes to the poll on how often you visit the blog. It gives me a reason to continue the upkeep of both SeaBuds and SeaBudsChatter .

Happy Thanks Giving

Lynette Schurman

I'm passing along a note I received from Lynette Schurman's sister Diane. I'd heard that Lynette had broken her hip! After reading her note below, I know you'll agree that Lynette needs many prayers, love, and support. Karen DelGrosso

Karen,
Lynette fell in her kitchen about a month ago and broke her hip. She had a total hip replacement and on the third day she was moved to the nursing home for recovery. While in the nursing home she again (fell?) and rebroke her hip. They did a second surgery ten days after the first. Again she was moved to the nursing home and on the following Monday they took X-rays and found the hip was broken a third time. She had surgery again this last Monday, Nov. 17; this time they put a special part in her hip and she is in a full leg brace. She is in extreme pain. She is in Capitol Mall Hospital in Olympia. Room 329 B.

Lynette has been through more misery than anyone should have to survive through. I just hope that things start looking up for her. As you are probably aware, she also had back surgery on July 10, 2008.

Hi Everyone!!

Boy the holidays are approaching fast and the days get dark so early. Seems like only yesterday that it was summer. Oh well.  I had week long visit in PA to see my grandson, dtr, and son-in-law which was most enjoyable. Coming home thru ORD I ran into, Brenda Andrews (coming from visiting family and going out again to Mex a few days after returning home), Nick and Nancy Barker (visiting family in Jersey), and Debbie Adams and her dtr, Molly (returning from Debbie's mother's funeral).  It felt like we were trying to commute home, we missed one flt and stood by for the next which we all got on.  It was great to catch up with everyone and the time sure flies by when there's a group of you, plus if you have to go to the bathroom or get something to eat you don't have to lug all your stuff around.
 
Mary Ellen Lee had surgery on 11/18 for endometriosis cancer. She had a complete hysterectomy, part of her right kidney removed, and 30-40 lymph nodes removed. She's in the Univ of Wash hospital and will be there for approx 1 wk (approx 11/25). Cards can be sent to:  13739 -  15th NE #6, Sea, WA 98125.  We'll be thinking and praying for you Mary Ellen, and may you have a speedy recovery.
 
I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for the holidays, and hope you get to be where you want to be for the holidays.  Cheers to you all, and I'll be in touch      Jane

Anybody out there?


OK Seabuds, are any of you out there? I'm getting tired of looking at my posting. Let us know what happening in your life!


I'm sitting at SEA waiting for my flt to leave that will take me back to AUS. Jaime's shower was wonderful and I got to see several people I hadn't seen in a while. Lots of fun! Speaking of fun, Scarlett is just a little doll. I'll be coming back after Stella is born to help keep Scarlett occupied while Jaime and baby rest and get to know one another.


I check Seabuds often and look forward to hearing from you!
