LA support group
« on: December 15, 2008, 06:30:09 pm »
Hi Guys,
Here is the short video, we had our backs to the window so the light made the quality a bit iffy. Practice makes perfect. Hope this downloads.
Lainie,

Sweaters in LA, imagine that. How can you stand the cold, why it is almost below 50 there, that is almost the same as 50 below.

Now that there is an LA Welcoming Committee Video on YouTube, I expect the AN fad to really catch on. Everyone will want to come out and be welcomed, I hope you are ready for the rush.

;D

Glad you liked the video. We can smell that oscar too! Speilberg's got nothing on us.

I'm with you, Cheri!  Would love to head back out there to see Nancy and David again and to meet you, Lainie and Francesco...just no surgery this time!  Great video, you guys!  Thanks for posting it, Lainie - I'm very impressed - I am just now figuring out how to post a picture out here, sure I'd never manage a video!

Thanks for posting this video. I thought I was crazy thinking that I look better in the mirror than i do in photographs. But David and Lainie look even more wonderful in the video than they do in their picture, so it can be true for me as well.

I think that our faces are dynamic and pictures are static and that makes all the difference.

Anyway, thanks for the confidence-booster.

Hi Sara

I'm glad that builds your confidence.  Both Lainie and I are seeing great results with Physical Therapy.  It's been a long road but it's paying off -- especially the Botox for me.  Have faith.
