The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

    The May 14th date that was mentioned at the end of the previous thread would work for me too. I would be good with potluck or whatever is easiest for all.

    Thank you SpecialK for continuing this, and thanks to Mondayschild for carrying the torch for so long!

    nbnotes - yay! A potluck would be fun - I think we did one at Firework's house previously, right? When the time gets closer we can refine who is bringing what.

    Thank you for taking over, SK! May 14th so far appears available. It will be a wonderful gathering of caring ladies, as we do so need at times.

    MC, I'm only a call or text away for anything you need. Truly!

    Hugs to you all.

    Specialk where are you planning the get together in May? I'm going to be in Tampa Thursday to see dr Wright and will just stay for the weekend.

    Kira - last we discussed it would be a member home here in Tampa, but I need to revisit and confirm. I will do that ASAP and put the details in the header as quickly as I can, as it is getting close enough to the date that people need to be able to plan. Stay tuned

    I'm trying to get in touch with an old member from our original get together whom I'm still in touch with. She has also gone stage 4.

    Please count me in on the May potluck. What to bring? Hmmm, I'm not much of a cook, but I'm thinking.

    Kira,

    We're so sorry to hear that.

    We're hoping for a speedy recovery for you.

    So sorry to hear that Kira!

    I'm sort of iffy right now for the potluck. I have something else that I had accidentally written on the wrong date that starts at 12:30, but it is come & go and in South Tampa so not too far away. Trying to determine which order I can do things. I'm thinking it might work best to go there first and then come late to our get together since we normally stay for quite a while.

    nbnotes - if it is a situation that makes it problematic to bring something, no worries! We will have plenty of food so don't let trying to coordinate that become a nuisance for you! Hope you can coordinate things so that we can see you!

    Thanks SpecialK! I think I will plan to go there first and then come to this. Don't count me in on lunch itself, but I'll try to bring a dessert of some kind or something for our catching up time :)

    kira - hoping that things go smoothly and that they can allay your concerns - so sorry this is taking place. Are you still coming to see the MO on Thurs? If so, and you decide not to stay for the lunch I would love to come over and say hello when you come for that appt.

    yes I'm seeing Dr. Wright Thursday. I've been home most of the last 2 weeks. I think I still have time available will check tomorrow with my principal. He's afraid for me to be at school so I'm sure he'll be okay with me off Friday too. I'll know tomorrow for sure.
