Thank YOU for Helping Me Down.

Before I went “down”, with your helped, I RAISED approximately $1500.00 for the Chicago Respiratory Health Association from their “Skyline Plunge” Fundraiser I participated in last May.

Yes, It is almost a Year Later, but it has been a VERY busy 9 months. We packed up our Chicago apartment in June, traveled to Europe hitting mostly Scandinavian Countries and hanging out with my nephew who is going to University in Estonia in July.  Then we lived on couches and cat sat while on a cross-country trip across the US.  And although my last blog said we were moving to Michigan, we did not.  We are now settled in Walnut Creek, CA, a half hour outside of San Francisco closer to family, both of ours.  And those families have kept us busy with dinners, birthdays, outings, birthday parties, and the Holidays since last October.

But that all is not what this blog post is about…it is about Thanking you for Donating the fundraiser and for Helping me do something  yet again crazy.

Okay, and I have the photos to prove it!

Way Up there with a Partner, who was so Scared, I Promised to go Down with Her.

Yes, There is Writing on My Pants.

One Leg says, “I “Heart” Jim” and the Other Leg says, “Tubes of Love.”

Done and Happy.  Actually High…So Cool!

This was the last time ever The Respiratory Health Association was going to do this Fundraiser and was lucky to not only do The Plunge, but to raise money for something that is near and dear to me as I suffer from 2 different Respiratory Diseases, Asthma and Samter’s Triad.

Thank you Again for All that Donated!
