auntyalias: I'll have to find pictures to get it right
auntyalias: Kathy, it looks good to me, ask the list for suggestions for how to organize if they have some ideas, so it's a group effort

frogger70301: NJ, not to change the subject, but do you remember when you were talking about the fine point bottles to do the faux lampworking?
bonsaikathy: we had the nicest time yesterday for mothers day, my mom, 4 of my brothers some nieces and nephews all got on and did chat at the same time to suprise my Mom
auntyalias: Mitch, yes, I remember, what's up?
frogger70301: Kath, that must have been a blast.
auntyalias: That sounds great Kathy, couldn't do that with my mom, her English typing ain't that strong
auntyalias: cly me a libber (for Cry Me A River)
bonsaikathy: I have some of those bottles filled with differant glues, they are great
auntyalias: it just wouldn't work
auntyalias: Oh share those bottles with Karen at ClayAlley, let her know where you got them then

auntyalias: Denise your petals are looking great
dahs512: thanks, little pods
bonsaikathy: Oh by the way, my son and his wife split up a while back, that was a good thing not bad, anyway, he's fallen in love with a Japanese girl and today in the mail I got a package from them and she wrote me a letter
dahs512: they will probably blow up in the oven
bonsaikathy: your sentence about your Mom reminded me of her letter, she actually speaks very good English but you can see the Japanese accent in there
bonsaikathy: it was the sweetest letter too
dahs512: that's nice of her to write
auntyalias: You're already used to reading in a Japanese accent with being on this list, yes?
bonsaikathy: yes it was
auntyalias: he'll be spoiled rotten if he hooks up with a Japanese National
auntyalias: they are trained to spoil men rotten
auntyalias: American men are never the same after that sort of experience, I'll tell you true
bonsaikathy: she already does, she wanted me to know that she wouldn't hurt him
auntyalias: awww, what a sweetie
auntyalias: also American Men are the BEST thing for a Japanese woman
auntyalias: they open doors
auntyalias: light smokes
auntyalias: pull out chairs at the table
bonsaikathy: I've heard that from a bonsai friend that's married to a Japanese lady, he said they are the best match for american men
auntyalias: all those little things, buy roses, be romantic, hold hands
auntyalias: all those things that Japanese men don't do because they are spoiled
bonsaikathy: very true
auntyalias: American men are more romantic and demonstrate their affection openly
auntyalias: and don't feel diminished because of it
bonsaikathy: you should see the way he wants to ask her to marry him, she
auntyalias: ah Denise working on the green part are you?
bonsaikathy: sorry, she's an avid scuba diver and wants him to get certified, he's planning on getting her friends to write will you marry me with sea shells on a dive
