Diana,

Thank you so much for doing what you are doing.  You are the best, dahlink.

Love you.
A

Dear Linda ..

Are you home?  Is it good?  Are you writing?  Cleaning?  Doing laundry?  Baking bread?  Making a prom dress?  Feeding the masses?  Reading a book?  Painting a master piece?  

If not "yes" to all of the above, I want to know why not, Missy!

Yum ... baked bread.  I may have to just do that little thing.  [insert embarrasing moaning noises here]

Wait!  I got off-track again.  Let me start over ...

---

Dear Linda,

Are you home yet?  I do hope so because I think you will get better so much faster at a place you are comfortable being in ... and in a place that you love with people that you love.

All is well here. We got some snow.  Not the huge amounts that other places in the country have gotten.  See ... Alaskans are not snow gluttons.  We know our limits and try not to go over our capacity to deal with snow.  Other places are so ... grabby?  They want it all.  Not us.  We just like it to look pretty and hide all the junk that no one throw away (because, "Hey, I might need that old car someday!").  We aren't frugual - we just like to blow our money on important things like big screen tv's and snowmachines (snow mobiles in the rest of the US).  

I think I got off track again.

Anyway, I am hoping that you are relaxing and enjoying beng home again.  I think of you lots ... do you know that I type faster than my keys work?  I type a letter and it doesn't show up here - and that ding danged "o" keeps pushing itself into every word (I do hate a pushy "o"!).  Know what I mean?

Man, I keep doing this forgetting where I am going with this monologue I am creating.  I have this attention issue, you know.

Anyway, I finally got all my pipes thawed last night and am in the mood for celebration!  I am thinking chips, dip and drinks in front of my big-screen tv.  But that won't work.  When my pipes froze, I lost my Dish network thingy.  No tv - maybe becaus of the solar flares?  Who knows.  So, chips and dip in front of a big screen tv with no tv. Works for me.  I enjoy quiet.

Well, darlin', I hafta get ready to get to town and do Shopping Day with my Mom.  It's a Saturday ritual that I either love or hate.  Depends on our moods.  I think it is a love day - I might want to go watch her big screen tv with tv inside it.

I love you, sweet one.

I'm not sure what I'm enjoying more...the fact that Linda is home, or Alison's hilarious messages...

especially the ones about pumping something or other...

Let us know how you're doing in your own good time, sweetheart. And just know that we care!

Linda!  

Home? Did I hear home!   Yippee yi yea and a toodley-doo!  I am soooo happy for you!  Again, I think about you often and send healing thoughts.   With the hundreds and hundreds of thoughts rushing toward you each minute, you may want to duck or something!  Ducks...now that's another story...

You know how I love the countrylife!   When I was little, a couple of ducks froze to the ice on the pond.   Well, what do you do with frozen ducks?  My parents decided to put them on the stove to warm them up and to bring them back to life, and sure enough, they did!   Now, had it been chickens warming on the stove, we'd probably eaten chicken soup to soothe our souls... but the ducks were released and lived daffily ever after.  Duck luck, if you ask me!

Speaking of foul, I saw the strangest thing in Kohl's Department Store asphalt parking lot the other day.   Right smack dab in the middle of it sets a determined goose.  I suspect that she has adopted the site as a maternity ward, as it is not uncommon for the geese to frequent the area in such places as the flower box by Kohl's main entrance.   (That one was a couple of years ago.   They taped the area off with yellow caution tape so that she could have her goslings in semi-peace   (Or is that semi-pieces?   The trucks do bat around those corners!   Oh forgive my bad humah!     The area remained taped for weeks until, the little guys hatched and left!  

With that, I wish you, Diana, Michael, Shannon a great week ahead.   Take care!

hugs,
cathy

It's a pleasure, Alison.

Linda and Shannon, just adding my happy hugs to the above delights.  

I hope you are resting well, after the move, Linda.  

About to send now.  My Internet connection tonight is really awful (itís plugged in tonight, though!), so I am sure it will take a while, but I think I will get it through.

More hugs (gentle ones), love, light and POWERPUNCH prayers

Dear Holler Girl,

I had a great trip to town with my Mom.  Sometimes spending Saturdays with her makes me want to put myself in a straight-jacket and just lock myself up.  I am sure she feels the same way -- but, hey, this is my story.  If she wants to share secrets, she can write her own.  We went out for Thai food and I had this soup that I am addicted to - Kao Soi.  It's a spicy noodle soup and I like it with beef.  I am a beef girl - no chickens for me, thank you very much!  It was so dang good and they brought me this spicy chile sauce that one of the guys made - it was smokey and hot at the same time.  Soooo good.  I am drooling as I write.  I wish I could just snap my fingers and have that soup whenever I want it.  I guess I can if I want to drive down to get it, huh.

The snow is blowing off the trees.  When I was unloading the car I got a face (and chest) full.  Took me by surprise and I couldn't figure out what the heck happened.  That is the closest that you will get me to admit that I am not very bright.  It's awfully pretty when it snows - I love it because I don't have to go anywhere for a couple of days now.  AND I have water again.  Yay!  It's the simple things that make me smile -- like being clean.

I thought I'd have a lazy couple of days - thinking of watching movies.  You need to see the movie August Rush.  The music alone is incredible.  It's such a bautiful movie.  I can buy it for like $5.00.  I don't think it was popular, but it is a keeper for sure!  I have a couple of good books to read too.  Alaska has a really good mystery writer, Dana Stabenow.  I love her Kate Shugak series and bought the newest one.  It has a mixture of Alaska history mixed up with the fiction.  I think I am going to be enjoying it.  There's another author from Alaska, Sue Henry; I don't like her books as well as the K.S. books - but she has a character that races dogs in the Iditarod and there is always myster surrounding her.  They are fun, light books.

Soooo, did you get stuff done today?  Or are you just lying around recuperating?  It's okay to lie around, but you could bake me cookies.  I really like cookies.  Snickerdoodles are my very favorite if you are interested and inclined to maybe do a bit of baking.  I know you have been ill and all - but ... I reallylike cookies.  Just a thought.

I love you, girly.  Thinking of you lots.

I have some other friends who are sick too.  

Linda, I am sure you won't mind if I ask Alison if I could I please have 2 bottles of Alaskan Alison.  Though, not being a millionaire, I doubt that I could afford 1 bottle, but perhaps I could pay them off monthly?

Dear Linda,

Taking a moment from my frozen pipes - oh yes!  They froze again. And to think that some think that God does not have a sense of humor.  I not only believe that I am being tested; I also believe that I am being mocked.  However, I can take it [insert superwoman image].  I have heat on the pipes as we speak (or rather as I write) and gonna try to handle this one myself.  I can do this.  Yep - but I am whining every step of the way.  

So, aside from my tales of woe, how are you doing, beautiful one?  Are you resting and enjoying your homefront?  I think of you often and will call again when I can do more than curse the frozen pipe gods and kick at small children and animals.  I am gonna wear gum boots to do that.  What the heck are gum boots anyway?  Sound pretty tasty to me.

I think I am using you like a diary .. Dear Diary, Omg!  Like my pipes are frozen again!!!  Those pumping and thawing guys were not all that they advertised!  Isn't that just like a man!?!  Oh Diary, what am I to do?  My hair is a fright and ... If I don't get my bath today, I will smell!  Ewwwww!  Like I just can't handle stench!  Which is just one more reason there is no future between me and the Pumping and Thawing Guy!  Like he works on septic systems!  Ewwwww! gross!

Okay, Linda, I have vented enough.  I am off to wish upon a star, find a lucky wish bone, eat a 4-leaf clover.  Whatever it takes.  Frankly, m'dear, I just don't give a damn.

PS ... Linder Lou,

I did it!  I can now be known as the Pumping and Thawing Gal.  Well, I didn't pump, but  I sure as heck thawed.  All by myself -- TOWANDA (from Fried Green Tomatoes - if you haven't seen that movie, you just gotta!).

Home? Did I read HOME?  Wow, I know that feeling so well.  Wouldn't accept hospitalization for 3 days for pneumonia because my husband was just discharged the day they wanted me to go in.  I did relent and go 3 days later so IV antibiodics  administered could break it up.  I returned home still with pneumonia underestimating demands to follow.  Out in the cold for check-ups, still with diaorrea from the antibiodics, shopping, meals to make, laundry to do, etc.  
Try to rest as much as possible to let your body heal.  We're all anxious to get home.

God bless you and I pray your strength and stamina return fully.

Well, Alison, I am earning half a peanut a month currently (promises don't materialise!), so what about I pay you a quarter a peanut a month until I have paid in full?

Linda, I am picturing you having a deep-sleep daytime nap with a smile on your face, surrounded by your family and animals.

I'm home! Oh, what a lovely word ~ "home"! If it weren't for all of my pip sisters and brothers and Diana's constant vigil and sending to me via my daughter Shannon, all of your love, prayers, poems, personal stories, and healing thoughts, I might never have made it back home again! ~ at least my terrestial home!

My heart is overflowing with gratitude. My words are inadequate in expressing how truly thankful I am for all of your continued love and support.

Diana, you have been like a guardian angel to me. I love you as do so many of our fellow pipsters. Shannon sends her love to you as well an to the entire pip family of which she now feels a part. Gosh, I have been surrounded by real angels ABOVE and below.

I truly wish I had the strength to reply to each and every one of you for keeping my light alive with your love and faithful support. Please know, that I will be forever grateful.

And thanks to Martie for reminding me of my precious friend Margherita's birthday! "Happy Birthday, my dear Dolphina" ~ You are one of the finest poets and sweetest spirits I know!

Oh, and Alison ~ my lovable Lasky Girl ~ you crack me up with your wit and charm!

I would also like to express my appreciation for all of the phone calls, emails, and cards from around the world. Pip truly is a family that circles the globe. God bless each and every one of you!

Love & Continued Light...

"love and continued light"....what wonderful words, Linda.  I am happy that your strength has returned enough to bring some of it to my heart this morning...love and light, I mean.  Take it slow and easy in the place where you know that you are loved by many. xoxxoxoxox

Linda,

I am known for being pretty sensivtive - but I don't sit and cry at the computer very often.  I am now.  I am so happy that you are home and I am so happy to read these words from you.  Never worry.  Shannon has been adopted by many of us - and you are forever part of my heart.

I love you, Linda Lou (aka Holler girl).

Oh, Linda! Like Alison, I sit here deeply moved with tears in my eyes out of love and gratitude for you. Thank you for your birthday wishes, they are stored within my heart. To know you are back home and recovering your good health is the best gift.

And thank you, dear, sweet Martie, your words really touched me to the core too!

And thank you, dear Diana too, for everything and for your birthday card which brought me much joy.

With such wonderful girls like you this world looks like such a good place to be ....

You are light bearers. THANK YOU!

My love to you and big hugs.

Welcome home, dear Linda!  So lovely to see your message.  As you well know, we ALL wish you the very, very, best of everything!  I'm sure your experience hasn't been an easy one and maybe there will still be a few trials up ahead but rest assured that the thoughts and prayers for your well being will continue.

Lots of love
