Of course I'd be delighted to, Corey. Does her husband operate the computer for her? How would she see all the links that are going to come in?

Does she like to have this sort of fun sent to her all the time not only for her birthday do you think. I'll make something special to send regularly if I could know it would a pleasure and not a burden for her.


Hi Shelley,

Yes, her husband or daughter helps her. It is one of her favorite thing to do. She has slight movement in one finger, so as long as it stays on the mouse she can read blogs. She reads many of them in a day.

Happy Birthday, Shelley. I always think of you when I see flow blue from Corey's earlier mentionings of her friendship with you over the past years.
With love and admiration for you~


How lucky you are to have a living-breathing-real-life-angel to call your "Friend".
...as for her husband: I love "Supermen"!!!

I'm on it! ;P

Be well.
Do good.
All ways.
All days.


I guess you can overcome things like this only if you have a hero as she does :) Love is the answer to most of challenges in Life.

To love and be loved

Thanks again and again Corey


What a wonderful thought for your friend. It's a good reminder to be positive.

I love this engraving of Madonna and Child. I have a little addiction to religous art.


I am so happy to send Shelley birthday greetings! And to you, dear Corey, what a wonderful friend you are. Thanks for sharing the love.


oh, phooey. My email came back as an error. Unfortunately I cannot click on your handy link to send my email (long complicated computer thing I don't understand at all) so I tried to cut and paste the address. phooey. Happy Birthday Shelley. May your day have no computer silliness.

What a lovely idea, asking people with a common thread to weave together a special birthday present!

I spent the day at an Aboriginal centre learning about what plants were eaten for what purpose and watched about seventy 6 and 7 year olds stand wide eyed as Aboriginal people told their stories and taught their dances.

I had to get up and learn to dance as a Brolga bird ??!! I dont know what a Brolga is but I sure know how it moves after todays experience!

I will look forward to putting a new blog up about it tonight and sending an email to Shelley with a link to it.

I hope that together with all the other comment'ers (? is that a word?!) Shelley gets bombarded with a mind swirling mixture of different messages and stories that will brighten her day.

G xo


Done! Yes of course... what a good idea... what a good friend you are... what a special woman Shelley must be.


Just sent her a mail.


It was a delight for me to send Shelley a Happy Birthday. I tried several times before to send her an e-mail but got it back as Mailer Demon...I hope this one went through. So far so good.
You are a lovely friend and one that I am sure Shelley treasurers.
I hope she gets a lovely Flow Blue as a present today :)


Of course-it's a done deal! How wonderful of you to have everyone send their links. She may wonder about all your different "friends" - lol!

I just sent Shelley an email but forgot to tell her happy birthday! I was too busy telling her about my mom who also had ALS and how wonderful things were. I also forgot to send her the link for my blog. I post lots of pictures of country life. I will send another email right away!
