Lumpy oatmeal makes me crazy!

Hey Angel Girl,

It's night and I am wiped out tired.  This has been the longest week ever.  I think I am going to go see True Grit tomorrow night.  Nothing like a good cowboy movie to start off my weekend!  Is it the chaps, the worn levis, spurs or the boots and that hat.  Who knows.  Just know this.  My blood is gonna be hot tomorrow night.  Yep.  I am a cowboy groupie.

I can't wait until you come back here and we can tear up these pages of blue.  You always have been such a bad influence on me.  You have.  You know it too.  Everyone buys that angelic act - and they just look at me and try to feed me oatmeal.  I don't get that at all.

Well, I love you darling dear.

Hello, Linda!

   Just thinking about you in the wee hours of our Ohio morning!  Yes, we're expecting snow again!   I just love it!   There is little prettier than cardinals donning their bright feathers over the snow and bare branches.  

   My mother had a major fall in September and she has come to my house to rehabilitate.  It makes me realize all the baby steps one has to take to heal- all the way from proper nutrition, to that wonderful
EXERCISE and therapy, to just keeping focused on the positive.  I say, it ain't easy!  But... the cardinals outside her window are a lovely reminder of the magic of color and flight and all that's good.  My mother will give it all she's got, and I know you will, too!
  
   I send you warm wishes and visions of the cute little guys feeding at our bird feeders!  Oh yes, I won't forget to send you a vision of that red headed wood pecker either!  His vibrant red head and black and white striped wings are especially striking on this wintry day!  

   With hugs and lotsa luv

Cathy (miscellanea-

Big hugs to all my favorite ladies... and continued prayers! *S*

Dear Linda my friend,

I am afraid that I have been quiet lately, at a loss for words, not here since the 6th of the month and not really thinking about poems and such. But I have been thinking about you.

I suppose the winter has me down a bit. Missing you here doesn't help.

My heart is with you darlin Linda.
My prayer time is full of you.
And if you think I'm silent just because I'm not here, now you know different.
God hears me well.

Ok, Linda, I promise not to feed Ali-gal lumpy oatmeal. I'll fix her Malt-O-Meal instead, with wonderful dried cranberries all plump and juicy with just a touch of brown sugar to round out the flavor [and MY bowl will get a little dab 'o butter, just because...]

So, dear, how's therapy? Are you pushing them or are they pushing you? Is everyone laughing at your marvelous wit and energy?

And by the way, Hug Shannon for us, okay?

Love, Sunshine

My new puppy has chewed through my power cable.  

I hope I can get one today - or get this one fixed.  However, I don't know whether I will be able to get a new one over the weekend - or at all, as my laptop was bought in 2007 - and if at all, I don't know whether it will have to be ordered or whether one will be in stock - and I don't know if I will be able to get one after work on Monday and before whatever time whatever shop closes.  At worst, I hope to get it on Wednesday.  I will email Linda and Shannon and tell them this so that if they don't get the replies before then, they will know they are coming.  I will do my best to get one today or as soon as possible.  

I don't have much battery power left.

Thinking of you, Linda, and sending much love for your recovery.  You're not too far away for all our thoughts and prayers to arrive swiftly and safely.

Thanks, Alison for the offer of help.  Unfortunately, my battery ran out before I could get it, otherwise I would have asked you to send every day for me.

I managed to replace the cable my puppy chewed, the day I said I was hoping to get it, but then Telkom lines were cut by copper thieves, and the whole suburb had no telephone lines for the whole weekend and half of Monday.  We then got our telephone lines back, but not our ADSL lines so we had no access to emails or Internet.  Telkom insisted that in my case the fault was no longer theirs.  I had my computer tested at one place and my modem at another.  The latter place told me my modem wasn't working and so cheated me into buying another.  When I got home, Telkom had fixed the problem and the supposedly non-functional modem was working perfectly, so I bought the second one for nothing.  Anyway, I am back - hopefully without any more incident for a long while.  

I am going to send from the last message sent up to this one.

Hey Angelic one ~

How's it going?  I am thinking of you - just got home and got all the kids fed.  I have five and one on the way.  Wonder how many eyes popped open from that last sentence (if anyone peeks in and reads anyway!).  I think you know that three of those "kids" are of the feline variety and two are of the canine kind.  I am getting a puppy in a couple of months - when she is old enough to leave her Mama.  Anyway, I get home and have to tend to all of them before I get a breath.  They are happy now - fed with food, "cookies" and love.

I do so hope that things are getting better for you.  Are you keeping your spirits up?  Keep your positive attitude and who knows what will happen?  Maybe you will have a miraculous recovery and be the perfect woman in body that you are in spirit.  I keep my fingers crossed for that anyway.

I have to call into a conference call soon and have to go look up the numbers.  I love you lots, darling friend.

Keep cool and stay happier than happy.  You have every excuse - you are on drugs!!!!

Love you,
Alison

Hiya Linda Ladybug!

Just thinking of you, as usual, and wanted to say hello. I was hoping for more news on here about you, but good things come to those who wait, right?

We just scraped by this winter storm. Luckily it stopped raining before it got below freezing or we would've had another ice storm with no power

John will be home tonight after over two weeks on the road. I will be thinking of you and praying, and might get a chance to pop in to see if there's any updates.

Hang in there baby! I can't wait till you get back here and are able to see the pictures of my grandbaby girl.

Much love and lots of light,
Dixie

I saw that about the kids, Alison, but my eyes didn't pop out of my head, as I knew about your gorgeous babies and have photos of all of them (I think - without going to check that there are any I don't have).  Looking forward to seeing the new puppy too.  

I am going to send from Alison's message up to this one.

It is but POURING with rain - not in buckets, but busloadsful.  Sometimes I have a problem with telephone lines after rain - haven't for a while, but have in the past.  Alison, seeing you offered previously - if I miss a day sending the messages to Linda, it will only be because I couldn't get on line - I am sure you won't mind stepping in and sending for me.  I hate Linda not getting the messages every day.  Thanks, Alison, I really appreciate that.

Dear Linda, Didnít you just love Allisonís Wolf story? I sat and read it all. I read all your letters. It helps me to know and understand all the more how wonderful a person you are. Each friend here at PIP is so terrific each in their own way, but it is agreed that we all love and miss you. I cannot wait for the day you are back with us. You are missed.
Love, jo

Hi Linda Angel!

I check in often to see how you are doing and I am happy you are doing so well. I am not writing much nowadays... except of course the poem I wrote for you. I am thinking of you and waiting for the day when you are able to walk away from all this medical and rehab "stuff!"  
love you

Dear Linda,

Just got home after a long day of running errands.  Two dogs, my Mom and me - and no wonder I am half nuts all the time.  Saturdays are purgartory.  Isn't Purgatory that western town down Yuma way?  Oh what do I know???  Anyway, Saturdays are not quite heaven and not quite hell.  So, I guess (according to my geopgraphy) Saturday's reside some place in Arizona!.  Anyway, I digress - which is quite normal for me.

I keep going out at night and checking the sky - I have been thinking about Kacy a lot lately and want to get some really good shots of the Northern Lights.  If I do, I'll be sure to share them with you.  Maybe I'll just go out for a walk tomorrow with my camera and take "Linda Pictures".  

I miss you lots - let's see what else is new.  Oh, I am going to get out my Rosetta Stone and try to butcher the Russian language again.  I put it away last summer because I was afraid that I was going to cause problems with Russia.  You know that I can see Russia from my window, don't you?!?  Okay, I can't.   But I can see Purgatory.  So there!  

The days are getting longer up here.  The light is beautiful this time of year.  The Yukon Quest sled dog race started yesterday.  It's a dog sled race that is over a thousand miles between Whitehorse and Fairbanks.  Do you hear about that one at all down where you live?  It's a big deal up here in the northern lands.  Well, everything is a big deal up here.  We are pretty sheltered from all the bright lights and excitement of the lower states.

Well, I have to put my groceries away, but I wanted to take time to whine at (with?) you.

I love you, girly friend.

Diana,

I had an email from Shannon today, so I've sent an email to Linda along that route, as Shannon was getting ready to go visit.

More later!

I had an Internet connection problem for a while, but it seems to be sorted out now.  However, Alison, with regard to your kind offer, if you see that I haven't sent for more than 1 day, please will you send the messages from the last time I sent, to Linda - well, now Shannon's PC - for me.  Hopefully I won't have any more long lapses of Internet connection now that the whole area's problem has been sorted out.  Smiles.  Thanks, Alison.

Here is the email from Shannon:

Hi Diana,

I'm so sorry not to have written for a while; my mom's computer is acting up a lot and I have been having trouble logging on, let alone opening her emails. I tried again today and was able to open a couple. I have almost 2 weeks of emails to try and open still, so I haven't had a chance to read many of the more recent responses to Mom. Just so you and everyone else know, I've been printing all of the responses/letters that have been posted and am putting them together in a keepsake binder for Mom to continue to enjoy and gain inspiration from, later. I don't know if everyone understands just how much they have touched her heart, and our family's hearts. Your wonderful words have made all the difference.

Mom continues to feel a bit stronger every day. She had a bit of a setback shortly after reaching the rehab centre in her current hospital, but is getting better. She somehow contracted a superbug, called MRSA, while in hospital and was immediately put into quarantine upon testing positive for it. Her roomie was whisked out and no visitors were allowed at all. It's only been recently that she can have a couple of visitors at a time, but we have to be in full hospital gowns, gloves, etc. to see her, and everything she touches has to be sterilized. She has limited access to people and things in the hospital, which has put a bit of a damper on what she can do. Thankfully, her last 2 tests to see if she is still infected have tested negative. Her final one is on Monday and we'll know by Wednesday if she's clear. Goodness, we all sure hope so; Mom says she's been feeling like a leppar! ;(

Diana, here is my email. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get into Mom's account again, so I think it's best to email me instead. That way, I can also access your emails from any computer, as I use a hotmail account. Here it is:  dowdshannon@hotmail.com. It's okay if you give out my email to people who wish to send messages to Mom.

Thanks again for your love and support!

Shannon
xoxoxo

I have subsequently resent all messages from 14 January 2011 onwards in one email so that Linda won't have missed any and also sent the whole thread up to now in both Word and as a pdf file to make sure that Shannon gets them to pass on to Linda.

Owl
