It's molded. Sniff-Sniff-It smells like an FP to me! Congrats! You deserve it!

By venusdemilo on Sep 30, 2013 at 4:44 PM

Hi there David! Sorry it's taking me so long to do all my thank yous for the wonderful messages & comments. I've had a need to do a few Lols as I've had withdrawals. Gonna send you more info in a e-mail later. Hugs! Deb

Congrats on Stupid Caps FP! Very funny! I hope you are well. I miss working with you.

By echeg5 on Sep 7, 2013 at 7:31 PM

I'm praying you get better soon, and I'm sorry for your pain. I miss working with you and I love you so much. Everyone here misses you. Come back when you can.

By venusdemilo on Jun 28, 2013 at 4:16 PM

As always, you praise me way too much. I very much enjoy doing these & of course, you always have my permission to use any comixes that I make for YOUR poems and songs! So GLAD you're happy with it!

By echeg5 on Jun 28, 2013 at 3:43 PM

I cannot believe how beautiful this came out! It is beyond my expectations, that is for sure! This is something I'll keep forever, and if and when the song is ever published, with your permission, I would LOVE to use these photos for the publication, of course, using your name for your contributions. I cannot tell you how happy I am! Thank you!

By venusdemilo on Jun 28, 2013 at 1:13 PM // Here ya go! or go to 'My Stuff' to review it. If it's how you like, I'll send the link to the Library for you.

By venusdemilo on Jun 9, 2013 at 4:59 PM

Thanks so much, David! I hope I have many, many more anniversaries here also. Still wanting to do more comixes of your poetry. My harddrive memory is almost full & it has deleted all my emails & I need to do some deleting also, as well as copy to CDs. But, my point is that I lost the 'We Love America (?)", but did want you to write it out for me. Will send you an email from the address I use most frequently! Again, thanks & hugs! Deb

Congrats on your anniversary with lolcats! I will never forget your friendship and how you helped me. What a wonderful lady you are! I hope you have many many more anniversaries with lolcats!

By venusdemilo on May 8, 2013 at 4:42 PM // Hope you're in the midst of a fabulous day. Sorry to be so late--had a very busy day scheduled & was gonna do it last night & I fell asleep! Hugs! Deb

Hi Deb! I'm sorry I haven't emailed. I have fumigation for cockroaches tomorrow and then a final inspection I must pass Wednesday or I will have to move. I have no money or strength to move, so I have to do what's necessary to pass. I've been sharing auio-files of new music I've been writing and also pictures of my apartment with booboo22. I'll send you a photo of the top of my piano right now through gmail. I hope you get it.

By venusdemilo on Apr 14, 2013 at 4:16 PM

Have we sent messages that POOFED? How about the 'spection'? --and the words to the song? Probably need to do that on email, though! Take care!

By echeg5 on Mar 17, 2013 at 8:30 PM

hi Venus I tried leaving you a message earlier but for some reason I don't think it went through anyway I just want to tell you thank you for your kind words and I much appreciate them. may you have a wonderful day and God bless

By venusdemilo on Mar 17, 2013 at 12:35 PM

That is SO great & you sound so much more up-beat! Just send the words to 'American' & I'll start work on that. It's hard to write the words as fast as sung, unless using shorthand, which I have long-ago forgotten! Congratz on your new, fabulous acquisition! Deb

By echeg5 on Mar 15, 2013 at 5:52 PM

Hi Deb. I was offline for almost two weeks after my android tablet ceased functioning. I've now bought a new android tabet, and I'm very happy with it because it has a much larger screen and seems to operate a lot faster than my old Android tablet Plus this one has a 12 inch screen while the other one was only 7 inch, so much better.I'm sorry I was unable to communicate for a little while but since 9 now back online maybe we can start off work where we were before and feel free to on work on any of my poems, etc. I'm glad I'm so glad to be back at home on lolcats again!

By venusdemilo on Mar 6, 2013 at 10:05 PM

LOVE the dog & "Cat in the Hat"! Gave me a really good laugh!

By echeg5 on Mar 6, 2013 at 5:47 PM

Venus. I left a message for you saying I'd love for you to make a comix of America, but it disappeared. I typed it out, but if you need it again, I'll be glad to type it again.

By venusdemilo on Mar 5, 2013 at 6:16 PM

And again, sorry for the delay. I don't usually get on here everyday & sometimes not for a few days--my already overwhelming chores just get worse if I do. Yes, I've gotten all the emails & I'm pretty sure I've got a couple of good pics to make a comix of "America"--if you'd like? I'd prefer if you printed it out to make sure I got the words right on it, though. Yeah, we tend to have to walk on eggshells with our kids so 'more doesn't get messed up'. It's not fair to us, but we love them, so we do it. I'm sure son hasn't helped you out financially now that HE has a good paying job, but I'd like to think he has! Take care--Deb

By echeg5 on Feb 28, 2013 at 4:23 PM

My son gave me huge problems in his twentys. Helping him ruined my credit, and he had some anger issues, taking out much of his frustation on me, but he's 32 now and has a new well-paying job and he's much more settled emotionally. I can remember very hurtful things he would say to me that he doesn't recall, but I never bring up these issues so we get along pretty well. I would have to say that in some respects I didn't stand up to him as much as I should have, but I value peace and don't like confrontation. Unfortunately, my son's anger also played a part in his breaking up with his girlfriend, but she has even worse anger problems than my son, so they're probably both to blame. I hope your relationship improves with your son. Yes, I have work to do, and I'm definitely stressed, but I can get it done. Did you ever get my email with my song "We Believe In America"?

By venusdemilo on Feb 28, 2013 at 3:47 PM

Well, I haven't been back on here until now. FAMILY!!!--HA!!! Not sure if I'd told you before that I haven't seen my youngest son & my 2 grandsons in over 4 yrs. & they live less than an hour away! POOH! Sorry, you flunked this time, but that is pretty common. It is a LOT of work & you have to keep it all up & keep on with your landlord is something breaks--BUT the difference in the rent payment truly makes it worth it. There's no way I'd be able to pass one of those inspections now. If fact, my place is so horrible that I choose to keep my face staring at the 'puter so I don't see it all. What I need to do is all 'over-whelming' to me at this point! Hang in there!

By echeg5 on Feb 28, 2013 at 3:22 PM

I'm sorry that I haven't been too communicative. I failed my inspection, and I have more cleaning to do. They even have me cleaning my ceiling! Hopefully this will satsisfy them. I will have a second inspection in a few weeks, and I'm working hard to pass. Part of the reason I failed is that only moments before the inspector arrived, my apartment owner FINALLY fixed my kitchen sink and put in a new garbage disposal. When the inspector arrived, the mess the plumber made in my kitchen was still there. I think I'll pass my next inspection, but I have my work cut out for me. Thanks for inquiring as to whether I passed or not, that's more than my family has done.

By venusdemilo on Feb 28, 2013 at 3:10 PM

Hi David--So how did it go?

By venusdemilo on Feb 25, 2013 at 5:16 PM

Goodness, David--you make me blush & also make me feel guilty. I've done so little actually. From the start (remember) I felt your poems should be on here & the challenge to learn how to make the comixes gave me satisfaction. Next tackle is city/country kittey & that's probably gonna be a 'dilly'. Hum, maybe not! Hope the guy showed up & all is A-OK tomorrow! You're welcome & I also appreciate YOUR friendship!

By echeg5 on Feb 25, 2013 at 2:29 PM

Deb, I am honored by your assistance and forever grateful. You are correct, inspections do force me to clean my apartment pretty thoroughly which it does need. The owner FINALLY answered his phone and told me he will replace my garbage disposal some time today which is the only thing that I think could make me fail my inspection tomorrow. I hope he really comes. I'll certainly wait for him. Seeing my poem with the wonderful photos you chose really made my day. Now, if I hit a home-run tomorrow, the game will be won. Sending you another song of mine I just remembered. A patriotic one. Hope you like it, and thanks again for your help and friendship.

By venusdemilo on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:55 PM

My! I guess you do approve! That makes ME very happy too. I'll send the link to Jeff's Book Club now. Always nice to have a good reason to do a really good cleaning--which is something I desperately need to do. Don't mean to rain on your parade as unsure how things are in CA, but when I had the Sec. 8, my landlord, who thankfully been a friend for 15 yrs. had to do things to the apt. to make it 'acceptable' & if something broke in the meantime after acceptance, he had so many days to repair it. He was one of those guys who put things off until the last minute & though he would always get it done, he sure worried the heck out of me during the time. If others in your bldg. have the Sec. 8, that would be a big plus in your favor. However, on second thought, if the 'state officials' see that he is truly a slum lord, they can penalize him. I truly hope it will all turn out good for you--that monetary assistance is a true blessing! It really would be GREAT to see YOUR POEM on the Lolcats!! HA! You wouldn't be able to send me enough poems to make Lols!

By echeg5 on Feb 24, 2013 at 11:00 PM

Deb!!!!!Fantastic!!!! I am floored!!! Without you, no-one would be able to se this!!!!I have been slaving all day getting my apartment ready for a Section 8 inspection on Tuesday, February 26 and finally after a full day of work srcubbing walls and even ceilings, I stopped my labors and allowed myself some computer time and there I saw your wonderful email. Thank you!!! My apartment is pure art, too creatve and original to express in words, years of work, many many hundreds of glue sticks and banks and banks of lighting in what is a pretty small space does not begin to explain my largest creative endevour on this planet. In this case, a picture, or rather a series of pictures, is worth more than a thousand words and is the only thing I could use to explain the beauty I've created here. Also in this beauty is destruction, for the walls are riddled with glue and nail holes behind my creations. I've heard my apartment compared to a combination of a musuem and Disneyland. When I get a camera, I'll take pictures. But, as I said, it needed a cleaning, and I gave it a good one. I also bought new floor rugs and a new recliner which really improve my place. Unfortnately, the owner is a slum lord who never responds to phone calls, so the fact that my kitchen sink does not drain has not concerened him for the many months I've let him know about it. If I had the money, I would have fixed it on my own, since I don't want a follow up inspection from Section 8. When and if they have follow up inspections, they send attack dogs out looking for raw meat and I am the one they have bitten in the past and I don't want to relive that experience. But as I said, I was admiring the work I've done here and basking in the beauty of my art when I read your email that was a perfect ending to a day of drudge. I can't wait to see my poem on lolcats and I'll always remember that YOU made it happen! So please proceed! And THANK YOU!!!!!

By venusdemilo on Feb 24, 2013 at 6:01 PM / / FINALLY! Cat Vs. Computer. It may be easier for you to view by clicking on it in "My Stuff/Lols". I won't fave it until you've checked it out & approved--though it always goes to the DB right away. If you approve, I can also send the link to the Library so you don't have to type all those #s. --Deb

By venusdemilo on Feb 20, 2013 at 3:44 PM

Oh, pooh! Nothing to forgive! I'm sure every single person here has done that AT LEAST once! Yes, I liked the song! Wasn't that also used as one of the poems 'we' did? Started working on computer/cat last night, but it was too big for just one page. Need to find another picture to put in between. *I* think it would look better that way--do you? Have picture, 1st part of poem, picture, 2nd part & then a final picture?

By echeg5 on Feb 19, 2013 at 4:52 PM

Hi, Deb; I'm sorry I got your name wrong, please forgive. I sent you one of my songs; I hope you get it. These are newly recorded, since my old songs are lost and the only ones left are those I can remember. Have a great day!
