What's Been Going On?



Letter From the Editor for August 2011

I hope everyone is having a great summer, whether it's spending time vacationing or stay-cationing. I have lots of news and info tidbits to catch up on, as I haven't been able to focus on blogging since I got back from the Muncie Fruit Jar Round Up.

When I came home, and caught up on my sleep, I woke to find out my Mom was not well. I nursed her for a few days, but it was apparent this was serious, so we took her to the ER, where she was immediately diagnosed as being a few pints low, due to internal bleeding from being on coumadin for far too long. She spent 8 days in the ICU getting blood transfusions and recovering from the trauma her body and heart went through (Mom'll be 80 in October). As of today it's been a 5-week ordeal, but she is back to her old self finally, up and walking 1/2 mile each day, and taking care of herself.

Jerry McCann and I have so many people to thank for contributing, participating, attending, and supporting the Muncie show. And I will get those thank-yous published here soon, along with a whole bunch of photos.

I think I should get caught up on some of the other bottle collecting hobby news that's piled up in my InBox first. So I'll get started now.

Happy Collecting! --Marianne
