  1. Michelle, let me know if I can help. I know that this is something that is very near and dear to your heart!


    I'll go through my stuff and see if there's anything I can send ya to help out!


    Naomi :blink:


    Thanks Naomi, spreading the word on Organ and Tissue Donation helps everyone!

  2. I commend you for your didication . . .

    Is there anything WE can do to help?


    Thanks for asking Fairyhoney. This is something I felt I needed to do and I just had several cachers making sure I was okay and that means a lot to me . Some people know how attached I am to my geocoins. I wish continued good health to everyone.



  3. I don't do a lot of posting in the forums. More of a lurker due to thin skin, but I thought I might need to post since we have some very smart geocachers and coin collectors among us.


    I have really enjoyed collecting geocoins the past 3 years and cherish all of them. Recently I have received a couple of e-mails from very smart people, not too many cachers in Darlington, SC, to ask if I was selling my geocoins on e-bay. No, I'm not in any financial trouble, no accidents in the family and it's not that I feel I owe anyone an explanation or that I think anyone is being nosy and I know a lot of people do not even know me but any how...


    The answer is yes. I have been selling my geocoins on ebay. Something I swore I would never do. Never say never. I am a hemodialysis nurse and transplant coordinator for my clinic. Out of the 100 patients at just my local clinic only 3 are on the transplant list. Why? Several reasons. #1 for my patients is MONEY. There is a 17 yo girl (same age as my middle child) that instead of attending the 11th grade full time comes to dialysis 3 times a week . With travel time plus treatment time that is about 6 hrs each time. She has already had 1 transplant that failed due to no fault of her own. Even with medicare/medicaid some patients are asked to have app $5000-7500 or more out of pocket, up front before being added to the transplant list even if they qualify medically. I have 3 healthy children and cannot imagine 1 of them going through what I have seen this young lady go through.


    Due to "conflict of interest" I cannot publically hold a fundraiser so this is my way of helping. I will not sell any personal coins that I traded for. I may e-mail you and ask if you mind if I trade for one that I can sell. The money will be given to the social worker for the "neediest". This is NOT in any way a request for donations. You can always donate to a local organization. I am usually a very private person. Lets call it a request for -Organ Donation Awareness. Thanks for listening to my rambling and thanks to all who have bid on my coins so far. Oh, and sorry if this is off topic.



  4. I thought I had posted I had received my misiion, Even thought I had posted pics but I don't see the post anywhere. Will repost pics and what I received when I get home from work.


    But thank you for the goodys. I loved everything (so did my daughter).



  5. How do you top off a great day of caching in sunny Myrtle Beach with lissie?


    Coming home to find a package lying on the bar with a huge Whittakers Kiwi Fruit chocolate bar inside. Wish the battery on my camera wasn't dead because this chocolate won't last long. After a shower and a another tick check the feast will begin. Oh, and the geocoin is so cute. A Signal, New Zealand coin. I love it.


    Thank you Butterfly Lady, you really made my day. I now have 3 teenagers sitting on the bed staring at me waiting to get started on the chocolate. I hate to even open it since the wrapper is so nice.


    PS Loved the card also. So true, sad, but true. :)

  6. I usually try to log something unique on each cache and it used to bother me to see someone cut and paste, but after a long day of caching , when I go to enter my log and I can't even remember anything about the cache since I found the same micros hidden in the same way all over town and I have to go back and read about the cache to see if I can remember something about it, I think "TFTC" or "TNLNSL" is just fine.

    Thanks, donorgirl!


    Glad you liked the chocolate and the coins. I really enjoyed sending them!

  8. After a not so good day a work- DHEC inspection which means southeast business unit manager, area manager, inservice coordinators all come to town to watch you all day- I came home to a little bit of sunshine. Make that a lot of SUNSHINE. A beautiful homemade card ( my favorite) and a bouncy bunny coin. I have never seen this one and I love it. My sunshine gifter has remained anonymous, but THANK YOU for brightening my day.


    Thanks, Naomi, for putting this together. Everyone needs a little sunshine.

  9. As I sit here watching my 6 yo doxie being terrorized by my daughters 10 mo old boxer Toshi, I already find it hard to imagine life without her. She has brought absolute joy to our lives and even has my 15 yo non dog loving son lying on the bed with her talking baby talk to her.


    CB when I first read of your dear Cosmo passing away, I felt a small void, so I am sure yours is huge. We have a couple of 4 legged kids waiting for us at rainbow bridge and just thinking about that makes it a little easier.


    I here my girls scratching at the back door now. A beautiful sound. Thanks for sharing your dogs with the rest of. I placed 1 of your 10th anniv. coins as a FTF prize in a cache I placed in a dog park and the recipient loved it (so do I).


    Thanks for all your coin designs. They are beautiful.

  10. Recieved this in a package from donorgirl today, and some sunshine certainly was needed a rainy day like this:




    I just love the Rainforest Jewel, it's so cute! And the very nice greetings inside the card really did bring sunshine! :anibad:


    Thanks a million Michele, you really made my day! :laughing:


    Glad the package made it to Sweden okay and really glad you liked the coin. Hope the rain stops soon and you get some real sunshine. Thanks for the kind words, they brought a little sunshine into my life.
