Welcome back to the 10's Shannon.

With the way these are run, the more PTTs a person votes in, sooner they will get their own put out. With the scheduling right now, it may be a couple months before I can get yours in, we are completely booked for a while and over half of the participants have voted in all of them so far. I would appreciate your patience on this.

3) More More More - Andrea True Connection

Thanks Jeff. :) And my thanks to you, Ron, Brad, Ben, Shawna, Ian (hope you Barb, Gillian and Colin had a good vacation) and Shannon for participating ! (Fancy seeing you after so long. I'm so glad you voted).

Also thanks to all my other good friends who voted. :headphones:

I haven't been on here for a few days. Val and I minded our 9 yr old grandson, Christopher, when he was home from school sick over a week ago, and whatever he had - we got it too. It really flattened us - still feeling off, but definitely much better. Of course, I was worse. It's a known fact that men are always hardest hit.( Cough.) :D

I've just been having a closer look at the Ten you chose and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Fancy 3 'Country Ladies' making it ! And 2 of my favorite Instrumentals.

A big THANK YOU to you all, especially Kenne for all the work he's putting into these PTT's. Good job Mate. :thumbsup:

Very nice final list Darryl, thanks for putting that together for us. We'll miss you when you go away ..... and you know you're going to miss us - so maybe you don't go away, how about that? ;)

If you must, you must .... but please come back for my ptt? Pretty please? :(

Sorry to hear that you and Val have been under the weather. The older we get, the harder it hits us. But if you have to get sick, at least the compensation was getting to spend quality time with your grandson.

Our vacation was great!!!! God, I love Hawaii. It was our first trip to the big island but it won't be our last (I hope). But I hate, hate, hate flying. Air travel has become so stressful, particularly in North America. Alaska Airlines and United Airlines royally screwed us up in both directions. I will never fly either airline again unless they are the only options. No food, no service, no inflight entertainment and delayed and cancelled flights.

Hope to see you back soon Darryl. In the meantime, I'll drop you a few e-mails. Take care, my friend.
