Dear Linda,

Just hanging out tonight with my friend, Beetoven - listening to Ode to Joy and thinking of you and the joy that you have shared with all of us.  Thank you, my friend.  I miss you tons and have for some time.  I am pretty tired tongiht - been listening to music all night, everything from Keb' Mo to Aerosmith to Beetoven.  I think I am putting off writing, which is what I originally came to the computer to do.  I was thinking of working on a poem, but got side-tracked.  Kind of one of those, "I think I have ADD - Oh! There goes a rabbit!!" moments.  I do that same thing when I am trying to learn to knit.  Well, that is another story for another day.  

I am thinking of you lots and loving you lots and hoping that you continue to get better and come back to us soon.


xooxox to you, holler girl.

Love,
Ali

Hi Lindy Lou, how are you sweet dear? I hope things are getting much better for you, we all miss you terribly. Well I'm up fairly early, it's coming on 6:00 am. Today is Superbowl Sunday. I'm not sure if you follow football or not, but its a big day for many sports fans, and many others who simply tag along to enjoy the festivities. I've got to go hit the store pretty soon and get some ingredients for some party vittles, it shouldn't be too crowded this time of the morn. Work is going really well, I'm not sure if I ever mentioned that I'm a chef instructor at college. I'm working nights now until 10:00 pm which is working out pretty well, it gives me all day to get things done before I have to head in. I wonder if you ever taught before, I wouldn't be surprised if you had, you would be a natural. There's alot of responsibility trying to mold young peoples lives. I absolutely had no idea how bad so many kids had it. Sure, we get our fair share of really wonderful kids, and much older folks as well, but the majority, well, they just seem to be abandoned, and lost. It really puts one's own troubles into perspective. Many younger people, mostly young males that are on probation, or, even scheduled to go back to jail after a short period with us. Some with those tracking devices around their ankles, and on, and on. I'm one of the, old school tough chefs, who doesn't put up any nonsense, and so many of the students in the first two mods before they get into mine, are often, scared of me, well that is, until they meet me, and then they know I will do practically anything for them to succeed. We have so much fun together while their there, I wish you could be there. Teaching is kind of like parenting all over again and I surely do enjoy it so. Its sad that what these kids need most is an education, and even when its right there square in their face, they still find a way to trip over themselves, and fall back to the shadows of society. That part, is hard. You feel like you've failed them on some level, not being able to reach them and pull them over that deep dark abyss. Sometimes with the tools we're given the challenges just seem insurmountable, but the magic behind the whole thing is that sometimes, that miracle does actually happen, and the one's you initially thought were going to term out actually become, superstars.

Well my dear Linda, I better let you go. Sorry if I ranted on so, I guess I just wanted to fill you in a little bit of what's been going on in my life, I hope you didn't mind. You need to get better Linda, this world needs you so, believe me. This human race of ours is always going to need those who see the beauty in things, if simply to remind us how fragile life is, and how so very special.

So very special, just like you.

I love you my friend, get your you know what back here, so we can all have you with us, fighting the good fight, figuring out what this thing called life is all about, and just celebrating the fact that we are here, we can think, and we can hope.

Until next time, take good care of you.

Always,
Richard ((((Linda))))

My Dear Soul Sister ... I think of you every day and pray that the angels I begged for are on your shoulders taking good care of you.

We've had soooo much snow this winter that there is just no place to put it anymore. Yesterday we went to Lake Lake Winnipesaukee, about 10 minutes from our house, for the 2nd annual pond hockey games. There were 146 teams from all over the US. It was such fun to watch but I got soaked up to my knees. The ice is about 14" thick but there was tons of slush and despite having boots on, my boots got soaked, my socks and jeans were beyond soaked. Not sure were all the slush came from but it was quite nasty. I was pretty sure I'd be swimming at any moment!!!

When we left we decided to take a different path out to the street and if you could have seen me you would have wet your pants laughing. My balance under the best of circumstances is horrible but trying to walk on a bumpy, narrow path, up hill was a nightmare. I couldn't count how many times I fell. At street level there was a young man who came down and offered to pull me up while Ron pushed from the back. Thank goodness there were no video cameras filming me!!

We had a terrible ice storm last night and of course we were out at a neighborhood party. It took us 4 tries on an unplowed road to get up this terribly steep hill to our house. We were both a nervous wreck and Ron was terrified that he's burn out the engine. And I have snow tires. I think next year I'm going to get the kind that has cleats in them.

Grandbabies are growing up so quickly. Sophie is now 4 and in pre-school, Mason just turned 3 in Jan. and the baby, Benjamin will be 2 at the end of May. They are so cute and precious. What a wonderful job of raising them our daughter-in-law and son are doing! We are going to spend the weekend with them this coming weekend. I can't wait. But Linda, it takes me a week to recover. They totally wear me out. But it's worth it!!!

I hope you are doing better and will soon be able to go home. You continue to be in my prayers for good health. I miss you so much.

Love and lots of hugs, Marti from the frozen Tundra!!!

I do the <font color=FF6600><b>MS Walk</b></FF6600><font color=blue>everyday!!

Angelic One: I was furloughed Friday due to bad weather. These furlough days are coming all too frequently! *S* All the weather forecasters had said we'd be getting snow, so the Mayor shut the City down. Days off are nice but not getting paid isn't so nice... and we didn't even get the snow so we could go outside and make fools out of ourselves playing in the white stuff! LOL All we got was icy roads. *sigh* And I know that northerners just sit and snicker and giggle when we shut things down for "inclement" weather when the days we're having would seem like spring to them. *G* But we'd kill ourselves otherwise! LOL Southerners do NOT know how to drive on ice (not that people around here know how to drive, whatever the weather! LOL) There were over 800 accidents between 10 pm Thursday evening and 11 am Friday morning. And that's with tons of people staying home!!! I was even hesitant to go out Saturday to take Colin to the vet... not because of the weather or road conditions... but because I knew the freeways would be crazier than they are most weekends. *S* But we made it... once I moved my bed so I could dig Colin out from  under it! LOL He could definitely sympathize with the needles you've had stuck in you! *G*

But... I hope the suffering you both endure from the needles ultimately leads to your good health... I love and need you both. *S*

And Kate. LOL I can't leave her out of a conversation... she'd never forgive me! *G*

Big hugs to you, sweet lady!!!

And big hugs to you, Diana... I'm sorry about your difficulties getting online. Thank you for doing all you do!!!

Linda dear, I'm finding this thread so heart warming.  Not only do we get to give you some lovin feelin, but we also hear about the doings of other poet friends.  It's nice to hear their other voices...their letter voices as well as poetic voice. So, I want you to know you have brought something new here to the blue pages family.  In fact, I think it would be a good idea to have a forum that just speaks of what's up, all of the time.  But...I would rather it be because you are feeling well and can join in from your own computer, at home.  xoxoxo

Will be sending now.

Prayer continues for your peace. I'm just home from the hospital myself. Pneumonia.  Im ot fully over it but on another 5 days of antibiodics, then we'll see.

You're contending with so many issues.  I do wish I had some cure all advice but the best I can do is to prepare for healng. God knows we need your sweet spirt on our blue pages.

Good night and God bless!

Sent up to here.  Thanks all.  I know Linda is loving the love and light and chatty news that you are all sending.  The sustained outpouring shows both how much Linda is loved and how loving Pipsters are.  Thanks Linda and thanks Pipsters.  I think there has only been one day with no new messages (after message 143, I think).

Dear Linda,

Maybe one more good wish is all it takes to tip the scales so I'm adding mine.  I do hope it does the trick so you can hop back into Pip soon.

Dear Linder Lou,

Hey, Sweetie, it's a beautiful, sunny day and I am thinking of you.  Okay, you would think that sunshine would make the day warm, huh.  Well, nope - it's -40 F below 0.  I am officially and totally sick of winter.  Yep, it's beautiful - but I have quit my job as the Pollyanna of winter.  It sucks.  Totally and truly sucks.

I am looking forward to summer and taking my dogs to the pond.  I found this pond that used to be a popular place, but it's now out of style.  How the heck can a pond be out of style?  Beats me.  It's a beautiful spot that is not frequented much - and it's a place that my dogs can run around and play.  My Abby loves the water - and my Stuart pretends that he is not afraid of water.  He doesn't fool us girls though.  

So summer will be welcomed by me and my pals!

I have loved our conversations this last week.  It's been wonderful to hear your voice and your laughter.  It's easy talking to you - like we have been friends forever.  Maybe we have, ya know.  I'll call again this week so you can update me - and make me laugh.  Love that part of you.

I am having a lazy day and need to head to the bath tub soon.  I have a date with a bubble bath. Okay, I get the water just right, get my book, get in and then within five minutes I am humming restlessly and ready to get out.  How was that for a run-on sentence?  Pretty good, huh.

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  I used to love Valentine's day when I was little.  I loved sending out the cards and picking the best ones for my friends.  It was fun to look over the VD loot when I got home - I loved those little cards.  Maybe I should buy some on my way to work tomorrow and drop them off on people's dasks throughout the day.  I think I will.

Well, girly, I love you lots and will write again later.  xoxoxoxo

<3,<3,<3 (Valentines for you).
Ali

PS - Red for Valentine's Day too!

Hello Luv!  Wishing you a very healthy heart this Valentines Day;  you already have one of the most beautiful hearts that I know.  

It's a gray misty day here on the Southern Oregon coast, and I had hoped the sunshine would last through today.  We always get two weeks of sunshine in February, and then the rain returns for a while... Sometimes until the end of May.  

I don't have any special plans for today, except to tell you how often you are in my thoughts and with LOVE!  I am keeping tabs.

Big Hugs, Sissy. I know you are lighting the place up...HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
