Updating this post from the beginning of the month:
Hello dear and generous friends and relatives of Jewelz!
Nearly $2,000 was raised in about one week. WOW!
The iBook and MS Office software were ordered last week, and when Miz Jewelz returns from Texas they will be waiting. When she's got email working on the Laptop uv Luv, we'll alert everyone and send a photo of Herself and Her Machine. At which time, please send a photo of yourself that she can add to her desktop slideshow. except for those who have already provided a link to the photo they wish to submit (and thanx to Patrice/Juke for this mah-velous idear.)
Special thanks to Ana Pineda for working the logistics, after only eleventy-hunderd emailz. ;-)
All that love passing by me on the way to Jewelz made for one dewy-eyed Toastia, lemme tell y'all. Thanks again for making this dream come true!
luuvv, Veek (Jewelz, keep on journaling) t.
