a Sisters get together 21-02-2009

Molly, Carol, Tricia and of course Monica all got together for a good chat and some good wine at Monica's house on the week-end - here is some of their memories of the week-end. I am sure there will be some more photos to follow, so keep watching. Angela and Debbie joined them with their girls and Monica's two as well.

Sorry I did say Sunday night I would send the blog the photos and it's now Tuesday morning - gimme a break LOL - What an awesome time we had. Lots of laughs, and more laughs. Can you see the resemblance between Tricia and Angela? Uncanny as Mom would say.
I can only describe the weekend when it was all over and I was back home as
'leaving me with a warm feeling'!
What more can I say!! Am sure with 4 cameras going you will get many many more pics.
Love Carol

then Monica sent her pictures and they were added to the video

Tessy was there in spirit, I am sure with her 4 sisters..........

Sorry 4 out of 5 just ain't good enough for me it should have been 5 out of 5. Kleenex. BUT I am always thankful for Mitch sending me to SA in 2001 when 8 out of 8 was FANTASTIC. That will always remain foremost for me that's the last time, I believe, that the 8 cowles were together and will never be together again. In photos that is. We I do know are always in each others thoughts and prayers - love you lots - TESSY -

For she's a jolly good fella & so say all of us

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - TANIA
Tania and all of us had a cracker of a night out, celebrating her 30th, Italian cuisine at its best with couple of bottles of red wine to go with it. Thoroughly enjoyed by all until late into the night.
Ouboet and little sister share a joke in her birthday card they gave her
Pity someone had to take the photo otherwise we would have been all 5 of us.
now here is a picture that will one day hang in the HALL OF FAME
Just after we told him that he cant have any more ice cream,
and then we said OK if he pays the whole bill

Present time - then we all sadly went home after a great night out
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANIA

I just cant do it - I've tried but I can't do it...............

How many times have you said this or heard it - I Can't do it-.

Well, Carol happened to send me this, although we all get many forwards and auto-replies in our emails, this is worthy of a place on any ones blog. I am convinced, that you will mention it to many, many people & friends to come onto the 8cowles blog to watch it over and over again.

If I had the name of the originator, I would publish it right here with credits in big bold letters, but do not have it at hand, I will be searching the Internet for it.
If anyone knows the originator /publisher, please leave it in a comment right here on the blog.

Sit back, enjoy and be inspired like never before...................................................

Tomorrow is just not another day - it is a blessing......
