message 1: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (last edited Oct 21, 2010 09:48AM) (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments Hi, everyone. I'm just posting this to let everyone know, that my presence in GR will be a bit erratic in the next few weeks.

I just got bad news from home (the Philippines). My father passed away. It came as a shock and I'm totally unprepared. I'm working on renewing my passport and putting together money to buy fare so I can go home.

In the meantime, I'm going to leave the group in the capable hands of Mel W and Rossy. Also, those who are helping out in the challenges, Debbie, D.G., Tracy and Valorie. And pretty much, all the active members that keep the group going. Please take care of our little corner in G.R. until I can get back.

message 24: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments Thank you so much for the concern and the support.

Looks like I might not be able to make it. I just found out from my embassy that it will take up to 6 weeks to get a passport. Now, I can get an emergency travel document to go, but it's only one way. I still have to apply for a passport once I get there, and considering that I can probably only take a week off from work, that is not feasible.

A horrid Catch-22!
