Thank you, job well done. Many years ago I had cut and paste that first TR, but it's stuck on the hard drive of an old and non-working laptop. On my version there was a great "Masterpiece Theatre" intro by zurgswife too.

Incredibly sad news. She was way too young.

She was one of the most gifted modern writers I've "known." At one point, she was considering getting some of her writings published. Did this ever happen? I always enjoyed laughing while reading whatever she wrote.

Oh Robin - way too young. I'm so sorry to hear this

My sympathies to her friends and family, may she indeed rest in peace, and free from pain. How very sad.

Love rereading those old TR - a lot has changed, but the love and laughter is so strong.

Her trip reports and blogs were always so warm and entertaining. She had such a gift for writing.

This is Pixie as I was known in Robin's blog, Brother and I have been together for a little over 3 years. Although he is deeply saddened at the passing of his sister he wanted to thank you all for the kind words and thoughts. He will let the kids know about this thread as well.
thanks again

Horrible, sad news. I enjoyed reading her trip reports over the years and her blog and how she took, or didn't, to living in Florida. I will miss checking in with her very much!

RIP. LY/MI.
