Re: my plans to visit the IPMC and Washington this year...


I have been given some bad news today.
Well, not "bad" news, just disappointing for me.

I appreciate everyone who has bought a model, bought a shirt, made a donation...
it really helps...and I will be continuing my efforts with fundraising.
I have not reached my intended goal (for my IPMC and Washington trip) yet,
but to be honest, I'm close enough that I could make it happen.

Unfortunately my Daughter is in a different place.
She has a farm to run and Horses to take care of.
And her Fiancee has confirmed that he will be in his last year of Apprentice school from October to December.
This leaves my Daughter alone to work her job and maintain the farm she lives on
(her Fiancee usually helps out as much as he can, allowing some time to herself).
She also relies on her Fiancee to take care of her four Horses when she cant.

So, she informed me this morning that she will not be able to make the trip this year
although she has given me approval and confirmation for next year.

I told her it was "okay" and that life must come first.
...and I said "well, if nothing else, it gives me more time to pad my account".

And thats about all I can say to you guys at this point.
It'll be a shame to miss the event again, but I am already looking forward to next year.
And I can't say no to my kid.

Dave,

While I do hate that you and your daughter cannot attend this year, I as well cannot attend.

So, with these options, I do look forward to seeing you again next year (I have no obligations!) yet, and do look forward to seeing you again.

Perhaps, my missus will be able to attend as we have no High School obligations!

Awaiting the chance to host a pint with you again!

Yeah, I'll have to try to bring something (to drink) from up here that you cannot get.
Not sure what that would be at this point...since everything is available everywhere now!
LOL
But I must be able to find something.
My kid likes Beer and Spirits, maybe she will suggest something.

You are 100000% correct, your family, especially your daughter, comes first. After all, this is a hobby, your daughter and the farm and all that is real life.
Indeed it'll be a shame you cannot make it to this years gala event, but, family comes first.
What the heck, as of right now I'm not sure if I can make it, I hope I can, but as they say, life gets in the way of the things we want to do.

Just enjoy !!!!

Thanks Rich.

I should own up to one error in my statement.
I said my Daughter's Fiancee is in his last year Apprentice school.
He does Electrical work.

Anyway, I have no idea if its his last year...not sure why I added that.
In fact I have no idea where he is (yearwise) in his schooling.
Might only be his second year...I know he was in school last year.

All I was told was hes "in school from October until the end of December"
And for some reason I turned that into his "last" year.
So...just to correct myself, thats what it is.

...
Yeah...my Daughter pretty much runs this Horse Stable/Farm by herself.
She lives in a House on the farm which makes it worse, because she can never leave work and go home.
Shes always there! lol
And, her Horses live there too, so when shes done with everyone elses Horses,
its time to take care of her own.

So I can completely understand when she says shes "busy".

Hopefully soon she will get a place of her own
...but then I will never see her!!! lol

Anyone having a problem with acces to any of my websites?
is your browser, your anti-virus, your anti-malware blocking access?

Someone has reported a problem to me...but I'm not sure what may have changed.
I know that Internet security is becoming extremely vigilant, more and more every day
But good sites and non-malicious content is being flagged and blocked for no apparent reason.

If there is something wrong with one of my sites, or if this blocking is unwarranted,
I want to fix it, or report the problem.

Try my various pages and let me know if you experience a real problem.
Specifically, an actual page or site block.
Maybe you could send me a screengrab of whatever you see? [email]

www.cutandfold.info My "jump" page...access to my card model related sites.
There are three links on this page that will take you to three different places.

www.davesdesigns.ca My personal Art site and the background host for all my web places.

www.papermodelforum.com Self explanatory...actually hosted on ecardmodels space.

www.papermodelshop.com Self explanatory

thanks.

Dave
Papermodleforum not working, but I think that'll be down to ecarmodels' issues. Other links working fine - for me.
Using Android OS on tablet with Chrome browser. Hope this helps.
