so sorry if i neglected to thank you for your earlier message...it means the world to me to be comforted by people like you who i know really do "understand" the pain...He was indeed a "trooper" and did not deserve to suffer. I am truly blessed with a vet who makes housecalls (I don't drive) and he was too ill to be moved. )Thank you for being there for me.
I'm trying to take good care of myself, I promise. :D Orr is my married name, and most of my husband's family are in California, but Oklahoma is the origin of the Orr grandfather that lent his name to the rest of the kin. Don't worry about the typos. I am known in some circles as 'the typo queen'!
I think it's pretty standard for the title to get changed. It happens to me a lot. Sometimes the new title is better, sometimes just different, sometimes it changes the tone a lot. I"m usually so jazzed to FP that the title doesn't get much of my attention.
Hi, checking in from the road. The IAP RR seems to be stalled with Greencliff. I will post msg to him tonight to ask him if he would like us to skip him for this one. Havign a great time but am missing my time with frens here. Hugz
I am hanging in there. Thanks for asking. I have a fairly nasty respiratory infection, and *whine* the moving is not over yet. LOL :D Yes, the orr is part of my name! It's Alisa Orr, and my nickname is Daisy, so... 'alisaorrdaisy'. BTW I noticed you are in Atlanta. I grew up in Columbus, GA. Hugsbak!
Aww! Thanx! And they took off my original title that said something like "What the dog says goes for me, too". I suppose the lol was squishy enuff without the extra gooeyness of the title. Hugs back! ~~ JB
We think Dinger got into some antifreeze, not everyone is as careful with it as they should be because they don't have pets and haven't seen what it does. I found him by the driveway, he looked like he had already convulsed a couple of times. By the time we got him to the vet his organs were already shutting down, the only to do was relieve his suffering and say goodbye. When I first got Harley from Selena, she had mentioned then that mama had gotten out and got pregnant before she could get her fixed. I mentioned to her one of the programs thru the Seattle Humane Society where they will fix mama kitties for free if you surrender the litter and they find homes for the babies and return mama to thier owner. When she came to pick up her kitties she asked again about the program and I'll be taking her out there next week. I try to print out flyers when they have free spay/neuter days for low income and I also spread the word for Pasado's Safe Haven, they have a van that does free spay/neuter also for low income.
I do not expect anyone to drop anyone else because I have unfriended them, if that is what your quandy is, sweetie. Also if anyone needs to drop me because of loyalties or something of that nature, I completely understand. I am not here to hurt anyone. Hugs & lubs bak
Ohai Georgette...you are still Georgette? :) The kitten in this profile is Greta, the one that had the bad leg but is fine now. The other kitten was Boz, the one that has cat flu and is still sick. Read my kitten lool again.. this time let it sink in. I got an email from you last week and answered it. I will look in spam, sometimes my good stuff somehow goes there. I think I will wake myself up with a cold watermelon, the season is almost over, gonna miss them. Oh well sweet tater season is next, my mouth is already watering for them. Lubs and big hugs Y.O.M.
Goodnight, Dave. I know...too easy. I would guess that Millie reacted that way because the dog was right in her face AND the fact that she had no escape route available to her. We both know that she was protected there but they think in terms of fight or flight and flight was not available to her. If we're out on a walk, Becky will not bother cats. We've walked within 18 inches of a cat sunning itself while I had the leash draped behind my neck. Becky cruised right past the cat. I guess the cat knew by energy that Becky meant her no harm. Now if they come into our backyard it's another matter entirely. Becky chases everything out of our yard. Actually that photo of the seeing eye dog I grabbed off the net. Here's a picture of Jeannie and Becky. http://cheezburger.com/4379370496 My friend LeeAnn was stricken with polio during infancy and has been in a wheelchair all her life. This is her webpage http://home.comcast.net/~leeannlaraway/ If you click on the Jeannie tab you'll find videos of her and her amazing capabilities. There's also a very fun one of her on an easter egg hunt. Watch those and you'll fall for Jeannie. I think I would find the Amtrak trip to see the whole country too confining. There are too many side trips I'd want to take. There are some amazing train rides that I'd be up for though. They travel through some amazing country. Now the RV trip has real appeal. I could definitely do that. As for my activities recently. Yesterday was a school day so I worked with the kids at school. Today I did some grocery shopping, got my haircut, mowed the lawns and baked some killer cinnamon raisin bread. I uploaded a photo in case you wanted to peek. It's way yummy. I'm going to use a couple thick slices tomorrow morning to make french toast. I hope the video helps you settle in for the night again.
What do you mean "Write Back!!"? I always write back. Yeah, if you don't like driving cliffside then you'd have trouble with much of the stretch along Big Sur. You'd have some of that getting into Yosemite as well. Both are totally worth it. Isn't it funny how at one time in our lives we would have been horrified at turning into our elders. Once we get some life experience and a bit more wisdom and they don't seem nearly so bad. I'd imagine that Millie gets excited at both outside and bye-bye. Both make the world so much bigger. That's too bad that Millie isn't more anxious for cuddling on the couch. I know I wish Becky was more affectionate. I often have to pair the affection with a wrestling match to get her enthusiastic about it. That pedal style Singer is a treasure. My grandmother had one as well and it was the most notable of her belongings. Even as a guy I could appreciate the appeal. I've never used a sewing machine. I do all mine by hand. I hem pants, mend things and replace buttons with no trouble. It sounds like you have some great memories of your grandmother that you can treasure.
