Hi Pat and Victoria, I am one of your volunteers who has been absent for a few years due to the ill health of my daughter, long story short, I have been out of touch for quite a while but would like to get back into the program again. I have done quite a lot of restores for you guys, as you would be able to find out. Just wanted to touch base and let you know that I am willing and able once again to help out. Best wishes, Vicki Sewell (ratz)

Wonderful Vicki!  It's so good to have you back and just in time too.  Things are really going to get lively around here after the New York copy run which will be taking place this weekend.

Hi Vicki, it's great to see you back and you were missed. Sometimes when I look back on older posts on the Forum I see volunteers that I wonder how they are doing. You are coming back at a great time.

Sorry to hear about your daughter.

Welcome back, Vicki! While we're waiting on the New York trip, you might enjoy flexing your restoration 'muscles' on our Non Restore Challenges. At the very least, they'll make you think the New York photos to come are much easier ^-^.

Thanks everyone for the welcomes, am looking forward to getting back into it. Have been doing some restos for family to keep my hand in and one serious computer malfunction put me out for a while!!  :mad: My daughter is doing ok, awaiting a lung transplant, but getting on as beast she can, she is such a trooper....she is 30 years old and has 4 kids and a husband who is just the best... I am amazed at how they handle things!

What an exciting time for you and your family Vicki.  I know of 2 people who had a lung transplant and their lives have changed so much for the better, I hope theire will be a donor lung available for your daughter very soon.
It sound like your daughter has great family support!

Hi Vicki

It's great to see you back.  I wish your daughter the best of luck in overcoming her physical problems.  Tell her to do everything she can to keep her spirits up.  Joy, laughter and love are all very healing.

I'm also missing in action for the most part - from brain issues that I hope will be overcome with new doctors and new treatments by the end of spring. Meanwhile, I lurk periodically to see what's happening and to enjoy hearing from all of our amazing newbies - and returning veterans like you.

Hugs!
