    Casper the Friendly Ghost

    In 2003 we drove to New York to pick up a puppy. I have always loved the breed.... so we picked up our ....."weim-a-what?" is what we always heard. I told the kids the the Weimaraner is known as the Grey Ghost and they grinned ear to ear "Like Casper?" so hence her name...Southside Chicago Lady Casper. I should have know that the small ball of grey fur with the bluest eyes you have ever seen was going to set us on our ears when in the first 6 seconds she knocked over my pop, drank it off the bench, attacked her cloth carrier as we played wack a weim to keep her in it. Since that time we have laughed and loved. She was well traveled as she has been to the mountains of New Hampshire and camping in Bar Harbour, Maine...she has been to Sandusky Ohio and Cedar Point, Kings Island Cincinnati Ohio, Chicago, Hobart Indiana, Niagara Falls (and on the fourth of July no less). She has provided love and fun...chewed shoes and stolen food but through it all she was...the best friend ever. As my disability increased and was harder to hide....my unusual gait drew attention with whispers of "alcohol" or "other issues" and my ability to be a nurse dwindled....I listened Gobsmacked about whispers and rumors. Thirty five years competency questioned....so sad. But she loved me and licked away my tears. Through it all My boog-a-lou was my constant friend and faithful companion who loved me without judgement and she never wavered. She never questioned when I could no longer walk her.....but quickly learned to pick up my keys or the dropped controller and to even give me the heave ho went I had fallen and couldn't get up. She didn't like water regardless of her webbed feet. She HATED ANY LOUD NOISE although she is a gun dog. Food...any food that was NOT intended for dogs was her favorite stolen, and begged for, meal. She loved being the "SESAME STREET DOG" when we visited hospitals...she loved being a Diva. After 10 months in the hospital there wasn't a still part in her body to welcome me home. Being disabled she was my constant companion...it will be so lonesome. My heart is shattered for my babies who are devastated. My heart aches. I love you Whooh. I will meet you one day at Rainbow Bridge.

    Lady Gaga and the Sound of Music?????

    Lady Gaga has been classically trained. She started playing the piano at age 4....wrote her first ballad at age 13. She attended schools for the arts gifted in NY. I never liked her either and one year at Christmas she had a special and she played/sang an acoustic version of Egde of Glory and an Acapella version of Born This way......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD3J1kFkva8Girls got talent....girls got pipes.

  11. Even I had on a rare occasion been less than....diplomatic....
  12. I don't think it has anything to do with being a mod. I think in most situations there are many ways to deliver a message and exchange information....some ways are just less abrasive than others. I have alwasy had a "gift" I am a middle child and a peace keeper. It is what I do best. I'm a great manager of people. Even when my kiddos were little I could actually get the kindergarten Mommies to play nice. It isn't the message but the delivery of said message that can be misinterpreted.

  14. You're welcome...graphic I know...My entire career was in critical care and emergency medicine, There are time you feel you are doing nothing but torturing people unnecessarily.
  15. How can the care go from extraordinary to grotesque? Extraordinary is the means available to use is sustaining a beating heart.....grotesque is when these useful devices are sustaining a beating heart with tubes shoved in every orifice and even more man made ones as you watch the body decompose in front of your eyes, as the toes and fingers turn black, they develop anasarca so severe it is difficult to even bend their arms and distorts their face, the sclera become gelatinous red goo that ooze serosanguinous fluid and their skin weeps and leaks everywhere and the slough off intestine is expelled in a foul smelling gelatinous "stool"...is when it becomes grotesque.
