It's all cornfusing, but the momma cat was lost due to complications of spaying. So she was to pick out another kitteh to replace the momma since she was already paid for. She picked out a kitteh named Toby, but he was pretty bad off, so she is going to pick out a beautiful tabby named Trixie. I had sent a separate rescue for Trixie, cause she looks so much like our kitteh Miracle. Because she is picking Trixie to replace the Momma, I will see if they can transfer the fees to another kitteh, and I will tell the lady at the animal shelter to put towards another kitteh.

I know a gentleman that is about 92 now and a WWII vet. He's just the nicest and most interesting guy in the world. He became a college teacher and is always jetting off someplace. Last year he went to Morocco. He rescued a senior dog for the very reason that he didn't want to outlive him. I think they've both lasted longer than they thought but they do great. Pepper has the funniest little gait but he still gets around and John gets him out religiously for walks. I always get concerned when there's a gap in time since I last saw him but each time so far, rather than an illness or worse, he's always been off living life large. It's too bad you missed out on Mt. Vernon. It's quite a place. Yeah, there's really not much to recommend to any war, though some become necessary. Nobody seems to come out unscathed. That is one thing good that came out of the horrible Vietnam experience is people learned to separate the warriors from the war. It's disgraceful how those vets were treated.

I feel for you if your neck, back, and knee were all hurting at the same time. I can't stand it when just my knee hurts which is almost daily, I am hard headed and won't take any type pain meds. You would be surprised at all the good stuff in watermelon, I eat it at least three times a week when they are in season..read up on it. Ollie has an appointment with the Vet in the morning, am taking my sister's cat "Pussums" also, she has something wrong with one of her legs. Yep, I shore got some clean pipes ;-) Many Hugs and Much Luv, Y.O.M.

So you got to enjoy some of the best parts of the day! My brother and his family are planning a trip to DC next June so that was a big topic of conversation over the weekend. I did the trek most recently and since I'm the resident history geek my opinions were asked for quite a bit. There was one thing I asked them to ponder if they chose to go out to Mt. Vernon. I don't know if you saw it while you were back there but the view off the front porch is fairly nice...plenty of lawn and the entry to the garden off to the left. Off the back porch is a long sloping hill down to the Potomac. So the question is...morning coffee with Martha...front porch or back porch? I'm thinking the view of the Potomac would be irresistable. Your comment about morning coffee brought that to mind again. I love the real early start to a road trip. Yours were much longer treks. I do day trips to Yosemite sometimes and leave at 2:30 or so in order to catch dawn at some of my favorite places in Yosemite. The light at the start of day is ideal for photos. I used to go to Yosemite for a three day weekend every year in November and my ritual was to get up Sunday morning and make my way to "Tunnel View" and watch the sun come up over Half Dome. There's a nice parking lot with a tunnel behind it that looks out over the entire valley with El Capitan on the left and Half Dome at the end on the right. It's incredibly peaceful at dawn though it gets very crowded the rest of the day. It would be tough to try to maintain a relationship with someone who did not talk. It's nearly impossible to get a guy to talk about feelings but to not talk about anything would be really hard to live with. VN really took it's toll on people. I had an uncle who did two tours and never really felt like he fit in once he got back home. He lived the last thirty five years of his life in Thailand. He didn't even come home for his parents' funerals. I really held it against him at the time as I could not imagine that but without having walked in his shoes my criticism might be unfair. I'm more inclined now than ever before in my life to add a cat to the mix but I doubt it will happen. While I have more of an appreciation for them, I remain unconvinced and it's not something I would "try out". It's a twenty year commitment and either I do something or I do not do something. I just don't have the conviction.

We think alike on those things. I have had several requests from "kids", and I have nothing against them. However, I don't like the bronies or the memes that show up in huge numbers on my dashboard. They need their own site. I'm happy that they think I would make a good friend, but I come here to see other stuff than that. If I accepted them, I would just have to endure it for a while and then drop them. I think that's a waste of my time and theirs. I know what you mean about the later years. I don't have any family left here except two nephews and some cousins. I have family on my Dad's side out west, but I don't get to see them anymore. I don't have anyone to take care of The Herd. They're my responsibility, and I wouldn't ask anyone else to step in for me. We talk on the phone and email though. My cousin's daughters are close, and they already are great to me. They know how I feel about certain things, and what my wishes are. I trust them to do what is best. They are all very sweet ladies. Have a great holiday and eat some of that watermelon for me. Better yet, I may go get one myself! It sounds like a good way to end the summer! As Jerry Clower would say, "luvmy8catz flung a cravin' on us". Love ya, Linda

Wow, your mom was really young to be starting a family. That makes things tough for everyone. I do relish the time with them and realize I am very fortunate to be able to spend the time with them at this point. "The Camp" sounds amazing...very beautiful...though I wouldn't have been a fan of dealing with the snakes. I know that if you're not a drunk teen messing with them the chances of getting bit drop significantly but still. It's great that you get along so well with the ex mom in law and the wife in law too for that matter. It's a shame that so often the person one chooses to share the battles of life with often becomes the one who is able to deliver the greatest hurt. Sometimes they can end in a civil fashion but so often it gets way ugly. I saw it all the time with clients and sadly have seen it with many friends too. That's one reason I cherish my amateur status. Well it's slipped past ten and Missy Becky needs to go out for the final piddle of the day so I'll close for now. Go get yourself some sleep woman! You'll feel better in the morning. It's amazing how good and peaceful the world can be at 5am. I suspect you're apt to just take my word for that though.

Me again. She went out one day with the social worker who was doing some shopping for someone else and bought her own bottle of ibuprofen. She's got it hidden. Sometimes you just gotta break the rules! She has some cousins who basically disowned her after she got out of the hospital last time. That's why she is where she is. The hospital contacted one of them when she was ready to be released. The cousin said they didn't know her and not to call them again. A lawyer helped her get some back disability and found her a place here. I found her on ICHC last summer and went down to see her. I think when the cousins found out she didn't have anything for them to get, they just cut her loose! How horrid is that? I got a FR from someone last week who had only one friend-the problem boy. I turned it down. I got hurt before, and I don't like being called a liar. I though it prudent to pass on that friend. Not much was in the profile either. I plan a slow day tomorrow. I may not even leave the house! Hugs, Linda

I left the DOB out of my profile on purpose. I don't like having it even noted. I just don't like the attention. I'm happy for those that do...it's just not my thing. The Constellation was one of our aircraft carriers that has since been retired. Losing my brother was a very sad and difficult time for the family. He'd been married less than a year when it happened. We stayed close to his wife for a few years and then she married again and started a family. It's good that she moved on. Still, to this day my mom gets flowers from her on Mother's Day. Those baby rattlers are as dangerous or even more so than the adults. I'm glad you went out there to supervise. I think I'd go bonkers if I didn't get my regular sleep. I know it can be really tough so I hope your new solution works for you. Boy your mom really had a vision for what she thought a girl should and should not do, eh? I see that you were able to find your own path in time and really do some interesting work that impacts people's lives in a very real way. All the dispatch and rescue work would be interesting as hell but you're dealing with people that are having one of the worst days of their lives and that can sure be trying...and often quite sad. The bbq turned out to be quite fun but it got a slow start. The birthday boy hurt his leg/hip this morning and was off to see the doctor about the time the party was supposed to start. I was there early and saw them off to the doctor and then hung out to let the others in and explain what was going on. It was nothing serious(long term)...just painful for Dad and that was already much better by late afternoon and he should be fine again in a few days. It's tough raising parents!

Hi. I knew the minute I saw Ollie's name who that note was meant for so I sent it to her. I went by to see Phyllis. She's okay, The docs are messing with her meds again. The government doesn't want to pay for all of them so they are trying to cut down or cut out some of them. They are weaning her off Flonase (?) in the next couple of weeks. They are cutting out one and cutting down on another of her meds for depression. Her diabetes seems to be off limits right now, but who knows? They didn't even have any ibuprofen for her for two weeks! Why I don't know because it isn't expensive. She went on an afternoon trip with someone from the nursing home. They went to a local thrift shop run by the Methodist Church. It's a nice place with great prices. She got 3 hardback books for $.50 a each, and they stopped by the local Sonic and got a treat before returning to the nursing home. I found out that she doesn't have internet anymore. She was with AT&T. I asked her what she wanted to do and she said nothing. That was the WRONG answer! I am going to check with my cable company, Time-Warner, about getting her connected again hopefully before the month is over. I told her we were worried about her and wanted to be able to get in touch with her. I don't mind relaying messages, but she needs to be back on. This winter may be long, and she needs to be able to communicate. She may not be able to get out much. I need to talk with the new activities/social worker, too. I'll try to remember to tell you, but if I don't, please nudge me or whack me over the head, and I'll do better! Hugs, Linda

Sometimes I can't find my good glasses any where, I happen to go by a mirror and there they are sitting on top of my head. You have a good Labor Day, there are so many crazies on the road my butt will be right here at home with my babies. I am a vegetarian (not a Vegan) so I won't be eating any burgers, hot dogs or steak. I am going to eat a whole watermelon right by myself. Big hugs and much luv, Y.O.M.
