Knee Update

My son, Jim,  just brought two different knee braces to me and Bob called to see if there's anything I need.  I requested a bag of cheap frozen peas to use as an ice bag.  (Wrapped in a towel of course~you don't ever put ice anything directly on bare skin)

Gabi was glad to see Jim.  She crawled all over him.  He's going to be caring for her again, while I'm cruising. So I'm glad she didn't run from him.

Avon Products announced today that actress Reese Wither spoon will be their first Global Ambassador.  I got an Avon Representative email earlier today announcing this appointment.  I think it's great, she's pretty and has such a good personality. In this newly-established role, Ms. Witherspoon will serve as the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation, focusing on breast cancer, domestic violence and emergency relief initiatives, and she will be the spokeswoman for Avon's beauty brands and Sales Representatives.  They have also signed on actress, singer and songwriter Jennifer Hudson, to introduce a new fragrance Imari Seduction.   

My heart goes out to the family and friends of those injured and lost in that horrible bridge collapse in Minneapolis, Minnesota.   Right at rush hour, this bridge over the Mississippi River, collapsed.  I'm sure there are a lot of people still waiting to hear from loved ones, who may have commuted across that bridge. 

Well, I'm going to go rest a little and then hobble around a little and gather up some goodies to price for my sale.   Until next time, Linda

Glad you got the knee brace. It is sure to help!  I love Avon products and I can't think of a better ambassador than Reese Witherspoon!  I think she's lovely and a great actress!  I had not heard about the bridge collapse, but it's really heart breaking news.  I am sorry to hear about that.  It's always something. Hopefully not too many were lost.  Very sad,

I hope the knee brace helps Linda, I'm sure the frozen peas will. I've used them often! The bridge collapse was awful, I wonder what went wrong for it to sudden;y go like that. Take care of yourself and get that knee rested! Jeannette xx

I hope that knee improves as you take good care of it!

I sure hope you start to see improvement in your knee soon.  Perhaps you should go to the Dr, maybe he could give you something else to speed the recovery along.  I adore Reese, I think she is a class act and that is refreshing considering the other starlets of today and there taudry behavior.
