Re: [MOL] Questions



Dear Cori:  You misunderstand, dear.  I wasn't offended at all, and you
certainly don't owe me any kind of apology.  I just felt a little inferior
there for a few minutes, knowing I wasn't able to deal with my cancer
without drugs.  You are fortunate that you have been able to!  This is your
second language?  Wow!  I don't have a second language!  I'm sure you've
read the extent of my Spanish!  LOL  Oh, and I also know how to say "potato"
in German.  Cartofal.  It never comes up for some reason!  LOL  Don't worry
about this, Cori.  I wasn't in the least offended.  Love, Kathy
