I'm really sorry to hear about your mum kashi. I can really relate to your situation. We had a similar experience with my dad before he passed so I know how you must be feeling. My dad broke one hip and then 2 years later broke the other. Then after coming out of rehab for the second time and getting him well and on his feet again he fell again a few months later and re-broke one of his hips.  They were hard years but i'd give anything to have him back.

Please look after yourself kashi and enjoy the good times with you mum to the fullest. When you can pop in to see the team because as far as i'm concerned your the heart & sole of this team & I miss not having you around to help figure things out. As i've mentioned before i'm sure I wouldn't be crunching today without your advice and patience. So don't be a stranger..

So good luck and all the best to you & your mum. PM me if need anything or would just like to chat.

Cheers Greg

Thanks for your kind words JugNut. That must have been a very stressful time with your father.

I passed on all the best wishes. My mum has been transferred to a much less hectic and better staffed smaller hospital at Woy Woy. She's even begun to eat a bit more. So next will be rehabilitation, hopefully in a few more weeks.

Once again I forgot about KIVA and was able to make 9 new loans. Our team is doing quite well with loans. No funny hats though.  :wink
Had to laugh at at one in Bolivia. A guy wanted $6k to buy beer wholesale. Sounds like a good idea.  :rofl:

GOT HIM! :BigGrin

This turkey : Jouko

Page after page after page of expired loans. Waits until the very last second and then offers a nominal $25 to add to his trophy-list, but only ever for loans with a substantial amount left to go - never if it's down to the last $50 or so. Not in the spirit.

I lay in wait - still had a decent amount left from this month's repayments. All I had to do was press the confirm button when he made his nominal contribution and  POUNCE!

Decent loan, too. Repeat borrower.

He's playing Kiva like some kind of online game. In the end he lends nothing and helps nobody, what a schill. :thumbdown:.
Well done Mysteron you did well :congrats  + karma

What the?! How'd that get to Columbia? Maybe left behind by a backpacker?
