I am glad you like my Dr. name change lol, I don't want to "kilt" you! I just wanna make you laff ;)) I pick that stuff right off the top of my head, I guess I am a little crazy. You make some good ones yourself! Hugs, Your other Millie
Hi Deb, I don't mind your long message at all. It's fun reading! Sounds like you have two amazing boys. A Harvard grad... wow, IMPRESSIVE! My hubby retired as an ATC after nearly 30 years. He got out about 2-1/2 years after the 9/11 incident. By that time his facility became a non government facility, and things were just going downhill, so he got out at the right time. I actually met him when I was only 18, he even took me for an airplane ride as a first date, as he was in the service at the time and flew planes and helicopters. (he's proud of that!) Remind me to tell you that story later! I ended up marrying him many years later.... he married someone else in between. No kids, but in the beginning we had five cats! All have crossed the bridge of course, now we have Roxie, a 5 year old Bengal cat, and Romeo, a 4 year old Siamese, who is nothing but a clown in a cat suit! Sorry about your disabilities. So much fun getting old.... NOT! I get to have that 10 year procedure next week, UGH! I'll be glad when that's over. But I've been lucky, except for some joint problems. (and bursitis in my hip!) Am trying to lose a little weight so I won't aggregate it too much. I'll lose some next week for sure, LOL!! Actually had it done 3 years ago. I love the way you express yourself. "Second scumbag got a male..." LOL!! So sorry you lost your one little Doxie. It's hard enough to go through a natural death, that had to be hard!! Yes, cats are pretty special, you just have to get to know them! I get a LOT of cats with doing pet sitting, more than dogs! I love my job, the only bad part is I can get really attached, only to have a client tell me they had to put their animal down, somewhere down the road. That is always hard, because 'I' fall in love with their pets too! My best client recently announced she had to put her cat down. I cried off and on that entire day! But then she adopted a little cutie from our shelter, and she is so funny, she makes us laugh. Anyway, it's great getting to know you, and I am with you, I hate bad language! Like my Mother used to say, you can get your point across without that kind of language. Both my parents are gone now. Do you have yours yet? Okay, I'm leaving now, LOL!! Take care, Mary Jo
Of course we're supposed to spoil them - but if I keep giving into Mrs. Norris's demands for treats at all hours of the day and night, how am I going to explain to the vet why she's 30 pounds of fun? I COULD blame her thyroid.... she's already on Tapazole... we could say it's working too well... but then there's the bloodwork... Oh well, I'll just have to keep thinking - CHILL
Hi Deb, and thank you for signing your name! Always seems more personal when there is a real name behind a message. And thank you for the nice message. Such fun reading material!! Had to read that to my hubby, he almost broke my ear drum in laughter, after reading the part about your ex and his job. He got a kick out of it when you added 'dummy', then went on for the next 10 minutes explaining to me about the controllers incident. (snore) He said that was probably the reason you divorced him. I said, "How do YOU know! You don't even KNOW these people!!" Men! Anyway, I am so happy to meet you! And you have/had a Doxie? They are so cute and so funny! One of my clients had one, and if you would point your finger at him and say BANG, he would fall over! Too funny! I LOVE cat speak on LOL's, if it's not too much. To me, you have to be able to read it fairly quickly to enjoy it and understand it. Too much work when every word is cat speak. As far as messages go, it's not fun to me getting to know someone if I have to sit and figure out what they are trying to tell me! I love e-mail and messages here, but I am not a big book reader, so when I DO read, I like to zip through it, instead of having to 'study' it. (Plus a lot of people choose the wrong letters and it's hard to read anyway) I'm not picky, LOL!! So, do you work? Are you remarried? Have kids? This is my first marriage, made it to 20 years! I'm hubby's 2nd. He saved the best for last, LOL!! So nice to meet you! -Mary Jo
lol, your other "Millie" I take that as a compliment! The new profile picture is Prince Rak..just Rak for short. He is one of mine I rescued that some sub human threw out of a car when he was a baby. There was three thrown down a ditch bank at the river, I gave his siblings to good homes. Lubs, Millie
Ohai. Thanks for your message. I've been taking care of the ferals since 1999. My Mom was feeding them first, and after she passed away, I took over. I promised her I would. They're a skittish bunch, but they have shelter (Dad's old shop building) and food and water so they're better off than some. I just take it one day at a time. Hugs, Linda (wally01)
amazing story about our World Trade Center headquarters...when we originally leased the space, our executive search committee was inspecting space way up high....one of our officers threatened to quit if they took space on that high a floor...so we ended up with space on the lower floors (between 10 and 20) ...she therby saved the lives of most of our employees...at the memorial service for the those we lost, people kept running up and hugging her...she didn't know why they were ignoring the other officers because she hadn't realized the "property leasing story" had gotten around.
