    A good while back I do believe she was heading home....well her mother's home to assist her.
    I'm sure with all going on....if she is taking care of her elder parent in this time peroid her hands are full.
    Having been down this road for the last 10 years until this past Feb. You loose track....and are focused on dealing with a daily situiation that never improves. I give her credit it's not easy ....and durring this time it can only be a night mare every day you open your eyes.
    TIF. Best regards hon....I truly appreciate and understand...wishing you peace.

    I last heard from her on Wednesday. She's around but super busy! She also has a new coin to show us, but half the story is something other than the coin... :muted:

    Time for your new thread, @TIF. :p

    I enjoy all the new people on this forum, but I miss many of the old posters. Hopefully, @TIF will be around soon.

    I agree, we have not had our FDA (Fun Describing Ancients) recommended dose of TIF recently.

    Mike is fine. Wrote me some time ago, but seemed happy, had moved, and found a wonderful person in his life. I miss him a lot.

    I take you are talking about @zumbly. He just posted on "Follow the Coin Theme Game". I'll grant you he has not been posting as frequently as he used to, but neither have I. I enjoy reading the posts though.

    I contacted coin-sister TIF through Inbox a few days ago. She's O.K. and living in Texas in her new house. She's working at home to avoid Corona. She'll be posting as soon as possible. Hope the best to all of you.
