It was a great surprise to see your signature line on recent posts. You have been truly missed. Your experience and guidance has helped so many travelers. My sympathies on your loss. Thoughts are with you and your family.
Dear Sheryl-first and foremost, my sympathies to you for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are will you and your family. Also, I hope you are able to resolve the health issues that have impacted you, and you have a speedy resolution to your malady.
Sheryl, I've never met you but I am a frequent visitor...and infrequent contributor...to Bidding for Travel. I want to express my appreciation for all that you have done to build this virtual community and make all of our lives that much "richer." Technology is a mixed blessing so stay only as involved as you choose to enjoy it ... and draw boundaries around how much you stay involved to maintain your own quality of life! And, yes, I have read the Administrative Announcement regarding the end of "amazing-bargains" relationship. Best wishes and Happy Valentine's Day!--TeePeeJim
Oh my goodness! I could not believe it when I saw your name! So happy to see you back Sheryl. You helped me so much, all those many years ago when I was a newby learning to bid. My girls are all grown now. My middle daughter is a pharmacist and moved to Florida, so we stay at her house and don't need a hotel very often. Guess we took her to Florida way too much when she was growing up. It was probably all those great deals we got bidding and using BFT.
I still check back here every few months. Sheryl, I'm so sorry about your Mom. I lost my Dad 5 mos. ago. I think each month, I get a little stronger. You will too. I'm glad you still have your Dad. I hope he's doing OK. You take it easy. Pamper yourself and let the healing happen. Many prayers will be with you each day. You have lots of friends here.

Be careful to pay attention to the little things in life, for some day, you may look back and realize, those were the BIG things. Pomcoach from Iowa
Thanks so much, TeePeeJim and my fave lady pomcoach.
Pomcoach, I often think about your hubby. How is he doing? Glad you don't have to pay for hotels at Disney anymore. Now you have more dough for Mickey and Minnie.
We thawed out after the Super Bowl last week. It wasn't fun for all our visitors. Dallas is being criticized for all the problems at Cowboys Stadium. 6 workers were injured a few days before the Super Bowl when ice slid off the roof at the stadium. Some of them had to be taken to the hospital and there were wrecks everywhere. Lots of money and celebs came to Dallas though.
I'm sooooo glad that you're back. As many others have stated, you've been missed. For the past 7 years, my travel has been reduced to virtually nothing. Still, I check the boards and refer people here often. Welcome back!
