DEAR READERS….We arrived at Rose Cottage in Chippewa Lake, Ohio, on June 17th! It is always wonderful to turn that corner on Bungalow Bay Blvd. and be taken back in time again!!! Since then we have worked hard to get our Perennial Cottage Garden in order….and I decided to give the whole place a deep cleaning! Lots of work but everything looks great. Although we always miss Key West when we are away, we do love it here. It is lovely to connect with family and friends and everyone is always so elated to see us…..gives us a warm feeling. And then, there are all the memories of coming here since I was an infant…..this is a place filled with Nostalgia. We were also thrilled to be here when the Cleveland Cavaliers brought home the Championship Trophy for the fabulous Cleveland Fans! It was quite an amazing series of games and it is wonderful for the city…..the curse is gone and Cleveland is a championship town once more!!!!! Now we are hoping the Cleveland Indians continue to win and bring another championship here!!!! Sorry to have not been in touch. No doubt you have kept busy and active and are enjoying the activities in Key West. I have had very little time to be on the computer…..but here I am. I will continue to try and get some blogs out…but I know I won’t be as regular as when I was in Key West.  Also, hope you all had a great 4th of July Celebration!  Chippewa Lake does this holiday BIG!  Parade, Ski Show, Cardboard Boat Contest….Parties…..Fireworks….plus this year we had good friend, BRUCE MOORE, visit us which made the occasion even more special…..his first July 4th at Chippewa….and he was wined and dined royally….Everyone in the Village welcomed him with open arms!!!

There are special perks to being on the lists!!!! One of the perks is having your name in KONK Life on the day of your Birthday!

PRAYER CHAIN…..Please continue to remember the following in your thoughts and prayers…the family and friends of Barry Cook on the loss of his beloved cousin Wanda McNeil….the family and friends of Kathy Melendy, and especially for Vince Melendy….Bud Gruber….Sherrey Welch…Bob Gordon…Mary Kay Clapp in the loss of her beloved, Tom Newton …..Hilda and Mark Watson and the family on the passing of Ted Watson… the friends and family of Dennis Stevens……Walter Lepperd…..the ….Howard & Inez Casey ….Ed and Shirley Block …..Lenny Stevens …..Robin Deck… Carol MacCartee…Paul Gildea …Eric Weinberger… Rennetta Stevens ….Basia Chaplin….

Remember, there are many reasons that we pray…not just for those who are ill…. I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for. Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for. Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving. We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man. Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things! Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this LIST.

*** THE CANCER PERSONALITY…JUNE 22 THROUGH JULY 23 ***

One of the first things people notice about Cancerians is their kindness, as they belong to one of the most caring and sensitive signs of the zodiac. This makes them very popular with anyone who likes to feel cherished. They are considerate, affectionate, and highly emotional. The typical Cancerian loves being at home, not only because it is cozy and comfy but because it is where they feel safest. They fill their home with all sorts of precious mementoes and keepsakes that remind them of the past and their loved ones. They may have cupboards and drawers overflowing with things they no longer need or use, but cannot bear to throw away. They love antiques and and their collections of treasures that are very nostalgic and sentimental to them. They love to travel, but are always comforted to be back safe at home surrounded by their cherished items. Cancerians lead their lives in very crab-like ways….often approaching situations from an angle rather than directly. They have a tendency to manipulate people into doing what they want instead of making outright requests. When the going gets tough, or they feel under-appreciated, just like their sign, the crab, they will retreat into their shell. They are very good at going into huffs and sulks when things don’t go their way. Being a water sign, Cancerians soak up the atmosphere around them like a sponge. They are also very sensitive to other’s moods, and will take on the feelings of the person they are talking with. Cancers also have a reputation for being psychic and having gifts of ESP. They are drawn to water….the beach, the ocean, water sports, pools, boats. Family means everything to Cancerians. If they live far away away from relatives, they will create families, choosing very selected friends to be part of a close-knit group. They are always very proud of their ready- made family members and are proud of their achievements. Those ‘chosen’ family members consider themselves very lucky to be looked after by a Cancerian. Cancerians are highly emotional, though they have a very shrewd side to them. This makes them a great judge of character. Thanks to their strong maternal instinct, which operates whether you are a woman or a man….Cancers are thought of as affectionate, loving and demonstrative. The down side of this, that sometimes this doting affection becomes stifling and smothering. They can occasionally cling to people and are reluctant to let them out of their sight. Cancers struggle to let a relationship come to an end. They will pretend that nothing is wrong and will try to keep the partnership going for as long as possible, even if it’s making them unhappy. They find it very difficult to say goodbye! Cancers are in clover when things are going well in love, but will become moody and tense when they suspect that something’s gone wrong… the bottom immediately falls out of their world. The very best signs for a Cancerian are Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces, Libra and Capricorn…secondly, Leo and other Cancerians, too! Cancerians have marvelous business brains, making them a natural candidate for a successful career. They know what they want from life and they know how to get it. They aren’t afraid of hard work, but they don’t want to feel exploited. They are drawn to jobs that involve looking after others… nursing, teaching….the antique trade….Their affinity for history makes them great historians, archivists, archaeologists….They love photography. Also they are fantastic cooks, and they are drawn to catering, bake shops, and the restaurant business. They love the idea of greeting their regular customers and caring for them. Their senses of humor make them rulers of comedy….and are drawn to entertainment. They prefer working with others rather than working on their own. Cancers love the good life and owning a comfortable home is key to their happiness. Financially, they value the things that money can buy and the happiness it brings to loved ones. They love spending money on those they care about….love making people delight in treats and gifts. Their strong love with things from the past find them investing in antiques and items made of silver.
