This week our destination is Winnipeg, MB Canada. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Bob? Bob was brought to our attention by his daughter, our fellow Teapotter, Charlene (crystaldolphins). Many of you are familiar with her gorgeous creations. Here is a link to her gallery, if you'd like to see her cards!

Charlene's father has had some health issues that required emergency surgery during the summer and under the care of specialists recently underwent an all-day, high risk surgery. Things went well and an update from Charlene is as follows, in her own words:

Dad had surgery on Oct. 16th and the doctor is very pleased. Although he has quite a recovery period ahead, they removed all of the cancer! He will be in the hospital probably until the first week of November as they have to ensure everything is working as it should. We are very thankful and so relieved that they did (and were able to do) the surgery. There were numerous ways this could have gone bad but it didn’t!

Get Well, Thinking of You cards are all appropriate! If you want to include my mom on the card, that would be fine! My mom is a HUGE, HUGE fan and supporter of our teaparties! The theme will work for both as well as the scripture.

Big hugs,

Charlene's parents have been living in the city while he has been under the doctors care but they are always anxious to get back to the country. Bob loves being at their place in the country surrounded by birds, chipmunks, deer, rabbits.

He has a wonderful sense of humor! He is definitely not a ‘frilly’ guy so masculine cards would be ideal. They are Christian so any scripture would be appreciated. He also enjoys woodworking and amateur radio (ham radio) although hasn’t done much with either in awhile.

Here is the address:

Bob (and Carolyn) Mitchell
403 – 204 Burning Glass Rd.
Winnipeg, MB
R3X 0H2

Thank you from Fran, Charlene and Me!

Update from Charlene as of November 6th:

Dad was released more than a week early (he has been home since October 27th). I like to think it’s because he’s doing so well (but I do know it is also because they need the bed!) He is doing well though. He is dealing with an infection but has nursing care in every day to deal with that. They are in the city for the winter now so he is going to absolutely love these cards! He does not know they’re coming. My mom knows but may have forgotten the date and I’m not reminding her! My mom LOVES looking at all the beautiful cards of our oh-so-creative Teapotters! Big hugs again to everyone and thanks so much.
