    Ted: D&D of the PPE?

    Sabby, hope Joey gets some well-deserved rest.
    How is the hip today?

    Joe, I agree about ppl who are late and don't call.
    I know your beef is about disorganization and last-minute things. I am not as organized as I *should* be, and I am OK with some last-minute things (they in fact can be fun and exciting).
    But it feels like disrespect to change two different people's plans (yours and your dad's) last-minute then be late and not call.
    and, if she didn't ask but just announced... well, I applaud you for leaving.
    You showed restraint to stay till 5.
    Draw the line in the sand.

    JBudd, thank you for the update. I hope you continue to do well and KICK BUTT!!

    NSIME, hope your shift goes well.

    I have to run to the bank briefly and then when I return home we will leave for Oak Glen.
    We are doing music there today, THE WHOLE BAND!!!
    12-3 we will have fun playing.
    Then will eat some yummy food.
    Fiddler will then leave to return to Fresno, and mando player to his digs, around an hour away.
    We haven't played together (all) since August.
    = one happy person to be playing together again.

    There is still serious discussion about scheduling a session in the recording studio, for a fourth CD.
    The others? We are giving them away like HOTCAKES!!! lol lol
    We just like the process. Like chronicling our growth, like arranging the pieces, like playing.

    Y'all have a good one

    Good morning! In 2.5 hours I'll be headed to Reno to catch a flight to Las Vegas on Southwest. Here's the crazy way I think - just in case a plane goes down today on the way to Vegas, you'll know right away if it was me or not. To all the burglars out there though, my husband and son are still here and they have easy access to firearms! So, stay away.

    Yeah, I know . . . .I just let you in on a little secret . . .that my mind works in mysterious ways.

    As a nurse, I see things turn out badly all the time. My daughter lost a good friend a few days ago. Her 3 year old son is in critical condition. Someone hit them head-on, he driving a pickup and she in a Suburban. He died too. That makes me think back to when Aqua Man was in a (multiple) rollover in our Suburban and barely got a scratch.

    As a nurse, I see things turn out well all the time. One of our son's friend's mom came by last night - her son would not answer his cell phone and she needed help. Spidey and dad went with her and found him - he stayed here for a few hours and then went home. I'm glad he got home safely.

    Joe, I have a friend who is in Chicago right now . .she spent 6 hours in the museum there and saw Sue, the T-Rex and Monet masterpieces . . . . I could lose myself in a museum like that.

    I have packing to do . . I always wait to the last minute of course. I'll bring my computer with me so I can check in.

    Have a lovely Sunday. (No plane crashes!).

    Is that anything like being a pekid

    Gidday all. Everything is good here but maybe rain coming. Black cockatoos flying south always means rain and there were heaps doing that yesterday. Rain slows down the tourist traffic which we rely on for our income. Also there was a huge truck crash south of us. Three road trains took each other on at a low level river crossing. That closed the highway for some time. Our road trains are pretty big, generally the truck plus 3 46 foot trailers and 1 30 foot trailer. Plonk 200 tons of freight on and you have a big outfit.
    Ted, I noticed you were doing some light running. Can't do that here, it's illegal to run lights.
    Wednesday morning I have a 7.30 am Roadwise meeting in town. I would have to get up at 3am to be there so will go in tomorrow and stay with my mate Janelle.
    Herself is doing fine. She has dealt with her loss and is back at work. She has a dream job. She is both a nurse and a special needs teacher. She goes around all the schools teaching first aid and road safety. I'm jealous.
    Best go and fix my electric buggy. It is on strike so I'm on shanks pony for now.
    Hooroo M

    A Possum, a Davey, and a Herring, went to the dentist. As they sat in the waiting room, the possum went to the small fishbowl in the middle of the room where a goldfish swam. The possum stared at the goldfish. After about a minute the possum turned her head to the right and the fish swam to the right. She turned her head to the left and the fish swam to the left.

    The Davey saw this and asked the possum how she did it.. The possum said, "It's hypnotism."

    The Davey turned his head to the left and the fish swam to the left. He turned his head to the right and the goldfish swam to the right.

    Then the herring tried it. She stared at the goldfish for about a minute and began to open and close her mouth repeatedly.

    Good morning to all.

    Steph, so sorry about your fall, know you will feel it more today (ugh)!
    Hope you heal quickly.
    Sounds like a good time was had by all!

    We slept in yesterday, had lunch with a friend then rested in the afternoon.
    We were still rockin' from the ship!
    Went to a jam but the venue was just too noisy (a bar about 20 min away, opened recently by a bluegrass member).
    Couldn't hear the instruments or the vocals, no amplification (which is typical at a jam, usually OK).
    We stayed a couple of hours then left.
    I prefer a house jam, easier to hear and interact.

    Today I have paid the bills and have the grocery shopping to do.
    Dh says he will do the laundry.

    Sigh -- back to work tomorrow.
    We are all still hacking/coughing. Oldest ds thinks he may have a sinus infection. Will monitor it.

    Overcast today, may rain which is GOOD!

    Gosh, time to clean up clutter!

    Y'all have a good one!

    Michael, don't be shy.
    Tell us how you REALLY feel!

    Good morning Sabby. Guess all my pot and pan banging did not wake this sleepy crew.
    Sounds like D is ready to fly the nest. The new machine sounds like fun.

    We are getting crisp weather, good for soccer games. Today I get to watch DGS pay against one of the better teams. His greatest hope is to win and ruin their homecoming. Normally that would not be thinkable but apparently the other team is not up to it's usual standards. It is a private school. Perhaps they did not give out as many soccer scholarships as usual.

    With a bit of chemistry I am doing OK. Getting laundry caught up. Last night I ate. I have decided that for the moment I will not even try meat. My dinner last night was broccoli, carrots, potato, mushrooms steamed with just a touch of butter. A couple of red bean crackers with just a hint of Jarlsberg cheese finished me off.

    Oatmeal for bkft and I try to drink a bit. I never was good at drinking, certainly never quarts of water each day.
    Best get going. One load ready for the dryer and the next waiting for their turn in the washer. I think I will sweep the floor before I go to the game. DS is picking me up so no parking issues for me!

    Enjoy the day.

    Good morning, Ted and Sabby and all who pop in later.

    I am taking the best care I can. I worked through quite a bit yesterday, as my tissue box can attest. Unfortunately there are many decisions to be made and some will have to be done fairly quickly.

    I need to go to the office today and pay bills and try to figure out a few things at work. My lawyer is so kind and I appreciate him so much. I know he has stuff he has been putting off until I get back. I probably won't be there all day. I have a couple of phone calls to make to his old friends but I did not have the phone numbers at home.

    I think I will get through this in the usual fashion. Time and talk.

    Thank you to all for your caring and sharing of love. It means the world to me.

    Have a wonderful day.

Mr. xxx worked as both a prosecuting attorney as well as a criminal lawyer. He had done both civil and criminal law. He retired earlier this year as a Criminal Defense attorney. His philosophy was that every client deserves the most aggressive defense. He represented clients with all kinds of needs, ranging from traffic tickets and shop lifting to embezzlement, sex crimes, and including first degree murders. As a Deputy District Attorney, he wrote the forfeiture law that is still in use in its original form. One of his books is a reference book for all attorneys involved with federal cases. His expertise utilizes all the knowledge he has incorporated from his experience and research. Mr. Folsom is a graduate of Salesianum School (Wilmington, DE) with a Bachelor of Arts and a Doctorate in Juris Prudence from St. Mary's University (San Antonio, TX).

    He was so much more than this. On hearing that he was ill on of the most formidable judges noted that he was brilliant. He was always quiet and never made a big deal about his skills.

    I wish I could give you a big hug right now. I'm so very sorry to hear about Jim's passing.
    Take heart that he was surrounded by the people who loved him and is no longer suffering.
    I pray that you and your family may heal and find peace. I'm so sorry.

  • Oct 14 '13

    Many hugs, dear.
    So very, very sad to hear this.
    Sounds like all that could be done for him was done.
    I grieve with you.

  • Oct 14 '13

    Oh AKY this is so sad and my heart is breaking for you.
    I am at a loss for words may you find some comfort that all was done for Jim and only God knows why he needed him more.
    May you take a little of our love and comfort as you work through the next few minutes, hours and days.
    I am thankful you were there with him to let him know he was loved.
    Peace and comfort I send to you this day.
    Please look after yourself my friend.

  • Oct 14 '13

    I'm very sorry for the loss of Jim. It is a comfort that he was surrounded by those who loved him and it was peaceful and painfree. You've been in my thoughts off and on today. Thank you for letting us all know.

    If there are specific things you need from us, let us know that as well.

    Jim passed away about 8 pm. He had a peaceful death with his son, DIL and me at his side. Although I feel sad, I am comforted by the fact that he is not suffering.

    Thank you to all who have shared love, caring, prayers and good thoughts.
    He passed away surrounded by the people who loved and cared for him. That is a precious gift to share and to receive. Peace and Comfort to you and your families. (((Hugs)))
