JEAN'S MESSAGE AND THE MOON AND CLOUDS



Here are some pictures I took of the moon back in November.  The clouds kept moving in and out.  This was right outside of my apartment.  Hope you enjoy the moon and something different than what I usually have on.  Jean's Message below.

Marilyn, a friend and I went looking at the cameras to see what it would cost to get a new one.  They asked me along to make sure, I thought it was a fair deal.  The costs of cameras today, really surprised me.  They run from about $75.00 up to $500.00.  Of course I never purchased one.

Marilyn's friend knows more about cameras than we do.  We looked at a lot of cameras.

So to get to the point, the camera we thought was the best for it's price and would do what Marilyn needed it to do would cost $99.95 plus 8 per cent sales tax.  Rounding it off, it would be $108.00.  Also, she would need recharging batteries ( 2 sets, if she could afford it).  Also she could use a new battery recharger as  hers is wearing out - it takes a day to charge batteries.  She would also need a PNY.  We thought it would also be better if she got the warranty with it, too.  So for the total we figured the total would be between $175.00 and $200.00.

Marilyn said she could make do without the recharger and use the old one.  Maybe her PNY from her old camera would fit her new one, she would have to see.  We didn't think to bring that.  She could also make do on one set of batteries until she could afford another set, but we thought that wouldn't be a good idea.  We definitely want her to have the warranty on the camera.

As I write this, she has $105.00 right now, which almost covers the camera.  But, I found, when you buy a new camera there other things you should buy with it.  We thank all those that have donated.  But, we could still use some more.

Also, please do not forget all the gas that Marilyn uses driving around getting pictures.  Any donation that someone could make would be appreciated.  I know Marilyn doesn't want to ask, but I feel she deserves some help for all she does on New York State of Mind.

Be With God,
Jean

NOTE: From Yahoo, the Police have arrest two people: a 30 year old man and I think 26 year old woman for the kidnapping of the two Amish girls. I am sure there will be more on our 11:00 news.

I'm very glad to hear the 2 girls were found and are safe now. And glad to hear they did catch the 2 who abducted them. I hope something will happen to keep them from doing something like that again!

I put an envelope in the mail today, but it will take a few days to get there from the west coast!

More lessons in interpreting some of our messages for you, Marilyn!

;) is a wink, if you tip the top of your head towards your left shoulder, you will see these a bit better

:) is a smile

:D is a great big grin . . .

Good Morning Willow's Quiet Corner,
I, too, am glad the 2 Amish girls are safe and they caught who did it. You wonder why someone would do such a thing.

Thank you so much for putting your donation in the mail. I really appreciate it. It is so kind of you.

Thank you for telling me about the messages. I really appreciate. I get these things and didn't know what they ment. Guess I have to get with it.
