Hey ya'll :grin: It's been a while since I've been on the BB, so where do I begin????? Ummmmm........

Ok, first I would like to thank Brian Travers (again) for the autograph and Leah for sending it to me.....you are great friends :friends: I hope that all is going well with UB40 and hopefully they'll come back for another US tour (that I can actually go to, and Norman will be there :angel: ) I sure hope Lamont is doing well :love:

As for me, I'm still on the mend, but do have some news. I am now engaged (as of Saturday night.....April 22)! My boyfriend (whom I've known since first grade) proposed to me while the song 'I Love It When You Smile' was playing :love: Yes, I've known this man for 19 years. We even graduated High School together!!!!! I've got a lovely diamond and things are looking up in that area of my life :angel: Finally!!!!!!!
I will be moving into his house by the end of May (he lives on the same street as my parents, only the next street over from where I'm living now), so it won't be a far move at all :laff: We have gotten a German Shepherd puppy who we named 'Sergei' (after the Russian Figure Skater that passed away 10 years ago). I knew him quite well (from being a skater myself), so I thought 'Sergei' was a perfect name for this pup. He is growing fast and when he is an adult he should weigh in at about 100 pounds :ooh: Looks like he'll be the one walking me :laff: We will also be getting a yellow Labrador Retriever puppy in the begining of June......we will deffo have our hands full!!!!!!!!!!
My daughter Summer is very happy about all of this (which is such a wonderful thing). She'll have a huge back yard to play in so she can run free with the dogs :lol:

So, all of this has been keeping me pretty busy, which is why I haven't been online. Don't worry, I'm still loving Norman, and my fiance is just fine with that :love: He's turning into a UB40 fan as well........thank god!!!!!!!!! He loves England too, which is another plus, cause I would love to come to Brum someday :grin: When I move I'm taking all of my UB40 things, so his living room will now be devoted to them :bigwink: What can I say....I am quite the UBLOONIE :grin: :grin:

I hope that all of you on the BB are doing well.....I miss ya'll very much!!!!!! I just wanted you to know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth :laff: I'm still here in good old Enola, Pennsylvania. So take care peeps, and I'll speak to ya soon.....

Big Love, Alisha xxxxxxx :friends:

Hey Alisha!!! Congratulations on the engagement!! I was wondering why you disappeard from the board... Any chance of seeing some pics of your and "the man" and Sergei, the puppy?... Isn't it strange how life works... I used to train with one of Katya's and Sergei's coaches, Marina Zuyeva. But that was long... long, long time ago in Russia... :friends: :friends:

I guess it really must be true what they say about Six Degrees of Separation. :)

Hey there :grin: I've just read the PM that you sent me on April 16th......sorry I haven't been on here to reply to ya. Now you can see why :bigwink: I've never met Marina, but I knew Sergei & Katia very well. I still have the hat that Sergei gave to me at an ice show out here in the states. Such a shame he died so young. Daria (their daughter, looks so much like him)! And now Katia is remarried and has another little girl (if I'm right). Yes, it's strange how some things in life work out.

As far as pictures of Eric and the new pup....well, I've got to get my scanner working (or get a new one)....the bloody thing just won't work and it's pretty much like new :rolleyes: But I'll do my best. Yes, my fiance's name is Eric. I'll also have to come up with a name for the Lab that we will be getting. It will be of full English Bloodline, so I'm looking for an English name!!!!! Although our German Shepherd is a Purebred as well, and he got the Russian name 'Sergei' :lol:

Big Love, Alisha :friends:

Hey ya'll...I'm back online once again :grin: Thanks so much for all the "congrat's"......your kind words really mean alot to me!!!!!!
Things are going alright, although I've been really busy with trying to move and all.
We did have a bit of a setback with our German Shepherd pup. He got rather mean and started to bite ALOT!!!!!! It was way more than just a puppy teething!!!! My daughter could not be in the same room with him...he treated her like puppy food :aagh: We had to bring him back to the breeder (who of course gave us a rough time). The mother of the litter we got him from was lovely, but they lied to us about the father. Turns out he was very hard to handle and was very aggressive!!!!! I'm sad that we don't have the Shepherd anymore, but hopefully he'll find a good home with the right people.

So, instad of getting one Yellow Lab pup in June, we'll be getting two :grin: A brother and sister actually. The breeder is a wonderful guy...his farm is huge!!!! He has about 450 cows...my daughter loves to go pet the little ones :laff: I never had been licked on the hand by a cow until the other day........strange feeling that is :laff: Anyway, this person has been breeding Labs and only Labs since 1964. If you get a puppy and you don't like that dogs disposition, then you can always bring it back for a refund or a new pup. Plus, all the parents of the pups are on the farm....even the grand parents and great grand parents. So you really get to see how sweet all of the dogs are. There isn't a mean one there!!!!
The pups we are getting are of full English Bloodline, so we are naming the girl 'Princess' and the boy 'Rugby'....very English names for very English puppies :grin: They will be ready to go on June 2, so we are very excited!!!!

As for setting a date for the wedding......that hasn't crossed my mind :ooh: I've just been so busy with moving into his house (even though I have until the end of May to be out of my townhouse). I'll let ya'll know when we pick a date though...trust me :love:

I hope all is well with all of you Loonies here on the BB :grin: I miss talking to you!!!!!!! You're all on my mind though (including the band of course) :love: Hoping to catch them the next time they come stateside :angel: Any news on that????????

Big Love To You All, Alisha xxxxxxxx :friends: :beer:

Thanks so much Gail........it's great hearing from you :love: I hope you had a blast at the UB40 gig you went too!!!!! Like I've said, I haven't had much time to go online, so I'm pretty sure I missed alot of reviews about the gigs. I'm sure all you UBloonies had a great time though :grin:

I'm so excited about everything that is going on in my life!!!! Although, my chest is still giving me some problems (what else is new...lol) :rolleyes: , but I have to stay positive. I'm really excited to get the Lab pups on June 2nd....I can't wait!!!!

Hopefully I'll catch UB40 the next time they come stateside...maybe for that SunSplash tour if they come this way :angel:

Take care girly and I hope all is well :love:

Big Love, Alisha :friends:
