December 31......

is a day my parents and I,and my twin, always celebrated!! Not because it was New Years Eve. A day more important than my birthday or any other holiday. This is known as Adoption Day..the day my parents got us..we became the twin daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph L. Redmond!! Annette Allen became Sherrie Ann Redmond!!! We were 6 mos. old . This was the day that changed my life forever. this was the day the God gave me the most precious gift  of all..the most wonderful parents in the world!! These 2 people moved heaven and earth to provide ,for my sister and I, everything that life had to offer. My sister and I had everything we could have wanted. My parents always made us feel special and encouraged us to reach for the sky and follow our dreams. 
My father got the phone call from Childrens Home Society Los Angeles..and they both loved telling the story.....
CHS.."Mr. Redmond,we have a little girl for you"
Daddy "we'll take her"
CHS " Ther's just 1 thing.."
Daddy.."we'll take her"
CHS.."Mr. Redmond,she has a twin"
Daddy  "we'll take them"
CHS  "don't you want to discuss this with your wife?"
Daddy " No, we'll take them"
CHS  "do you want to see them before you decide"
Daddy.."NO, WE'LL TAKE THEM"
And so the journey began!!! And what a marvelous one it was! There was not one day,in their entire lives that I knew,without a shadow of a doubt, that I(and my sister) came first..in every way.  
Thank you Mom and Daddy..I still celebrate..and I can feel you here with me.
To my birth mother..where ever you are..Thank You! And, I love you too..only a mother who loves her children could make that sacrifice..one I know only too well!
MY PATERNAL GRANDMA,MY MOM AND "FINNY",THE SOCIAL WORKER (SHE CAME TO MY WEDDING!)

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF ADOPTING US!! SO CHUNKY WE WERE!

lOOK AT THAT SMILE!!!   YOU'D THINK SHE'D BE EXHAUSTED!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!! MAY 2012 BRING YOU LOVE,JOY, HAPPINESS AND HEALTH!!!!

Adobe Forums: PSE9..full edit problems

Adobe Forums: PSE9..full edit problems..I have just posted to Adobe forums.
All of a sudden, my effects/content under full edit won't work. I went to the adobe online customer support..their answer...i need to pay $39.00 for a "support ticket" for help! This fucking pisses me off!! I bought their product, it's not working..why do I have to pay again to get it to work? What is wrong with companies today..do they not stand behind their product anymore? they want me to PAY for an answer? It's not like I dropped PSE9,or stepped on it,or spilled my coffeee on it!! Dear God..what is this world coming to? I swear to God, if I hadn't paid good money for this,I'd smear it in dog shit and mail it to them!!!!! My apologies to my friends who may be offended by my choice of words!!!...
If anyone has any ideas,let me know!!
....maybe I should uninstall and re-install?...can I do that? will the serial number work twice?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!

Sharing..

I'm having a sad day..today is the anniversary of my father's death. Long-time followers and friends know that my parents were my world..that they adopted my twin sister and I when we were 6 mos old.  I know that my father was long -ready to join my mother in Heaven. I moved into my fathers house..15 min away from mine, to care for him as he died with dignity and peace,in his own way.He was in a coma,on IV morphine on Christmas Day. I stayed awake as long as I could,as I knew he didn't have long. I fell asleep around 3 in the morning Dec.26th...He met my Mother and she lead him across while I slept. I know he waited till I feel asleep.
They are all gone, my Mom,my Dad and my sister. 
I miss you all.
Daddy, you set the bar for every man I met!..honor,integrity,kindness and humor..these were the traits that they had to have. Thank you for loving me with all your heart.Thank you for doing without,so that we could have,when times were tough. Thanks for all your love and support.Thanks for encouraging me to reach for the stars and telling me I could grab them. 
I wouldn't be the woman I am today,without you and Mom. 
I love you!

ok..I am ready to move out of California!! My husband says this is better benefits than he got from the VA as a Veteran!
California allows dead beat Dads to get away with not paying child support and gives them state aid..NOW WE ARE GIVING ILLEGAL ALIENS MONEY TO ATTEND CALIFORNIA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES!! OMG..this is pitiful!!!
is this why they raised the tuition's? I am all for helping our citizens...but,let them become a tax paying citizen before my tax dollars go to helping them!!! Does anyone else see a problem with this?
