Yesterday morning stopped at Goodwill to pick up reading material for the flight home, then on to lunch with my sister and a cousin who, until Mom's funeral on Monday, I hadn't seen for going on 50 years.

Drove around a bit and discovered that neither my sister nor I had actually ever been to Greendale, one of the three Greenbelt communities (for middle income working families) that had been built during the Roosevelt administration (1938-ish). The town is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. We did a quick swing through before lunch, then came back afterwards to further check out the Vistor's Center which is also the test kitchen for Taste of Home magazine and others. Then we drove around a few other places closer to our youthful home in West Allis.

Back at home had enough time to set up a visit with a childhood neighbor family (house on the other side of next door) and 2 possibly 3 of the kids we grew up with. I also called my 93 year old great aunt -- the only one of my grandmother's siblings still alive -- and talked for quite awhile, though we won't visit. The funeral Monday sapped her energy and she's still recovering, so talking on the phone is better than sitting in her living room.

By that time it was quite dark so my sister and and I went out to check out the Christmas lights around Milwaukee. There were some pretty exuberant displays close by, but I was disappointed in the downtown displays. (And quickly realized I really don't know Milwaukee anymore...downtown has changed so dramatically since I worked downtown in the late '60s. So many of the buildings I knew along Wisconsin Avenue are gone or changed dramatically.) Shorewood had some good lights, but Whitefish Bay was better -- combinations of some pretty interesting architecture and lighting displays. Then down into the Valley to check out the very impressive lights around Miller Brewery and on to Washington Highlands, another interesting neighborhood.

Went to bed not long after we got back to my sister's apartment -- had to be up early this morning to check in with Southwest and print out my boarding passes...which I'm waiting to do right now (have about 15 minutes to wait until it's 24 hours before the flight). Alas, as you can tell, I woke up a bit early and couldn't fall back to sleep for another hour's rest. Sigh. Tomorrow will be an even earlier morning.

tommy is in hospital with pneumonia again. he is however looking like he will beat it again, despite the x ray looking alarming. but we don't get complacent as he can dip again. we don't want him in critical condition again, but we do know that a teenager with myotonic dystrophy is always in danger, so anyone with a prayer to spare....

Sorry that I have been missing in action. Hugs to you Sins. You have people around you to offer love and support because you give so much of the same.

Linn, may you have a smooth and undelayed trip home, and even in your time of double sadness, may you hold the love and caring you got and gave among family and old friends close around you.

Tam, I hope you feel the loving energy of all our care and concern wrapped around you like a warm, soft fleece that you can reach out and hug to yourself on the worst days, offering comfort and at least some hearts-ease even when there is little physical ease to be had.

Thank you, Nigel, for your lovely gift.

maeve, pull up here a minute to the warmth around the galley stove and let me bring you a cup of tea. Put your feet up, just a little while, and rest here among friends who cherish you.

Up Spaw.

Stilly, I am so pissed off for you. Absolutely fuming. Not words of comfort, I know. Just what I am feeling.

Pete and Pete, Wendy, Chantylass, Gnu, Ranger, Sandra, and all who sail along here, thank you and hugs to you.

A motley and also hearty crew, all of us doing our best to live life on life's terms and not only helping one another to stay afloat, but moving a fine ship along such that it's sails sometime gleam in the sun and wind. The Old Ark's A'Movin

Just got an email from Chris' sister. She wants to send a catered something to the office for his friends.So nice for the office and his friends. So nice for the lady who has cooked his breakfast every morning for three years. They will use her business for the catering.Brenda was the one who called 911 when I fell apart.

Kitties are settling down. A big sigh of relief. All is as it should be. A long chatter AT the Captain really helped. He listened, offered no advice and assured me that I did good. I am so lucky to have him and Jacqui and a few others who discreetly stand by if I need them.

Things have rolled out a lot faster than I expected. Chris' aunt and uncle arrived to clean out the apartment. I picked up the kitties and we visited the vet. He and i are both bloody. Found out one kitty has two paws on each front leg and she knows how to use them.
Shots up to date. New kitties in bedroom upstairs with multiple beds and nests, clean litter and food and water. Downstairs kitties are curious (Alice) and pissed off (Fred) . Literally - I picked him up for a long cuddle and he peed on me.
I am taking tomorrow off to decompress and help the cats get settled.
The family and police have me as a point of contact so I have been on the phone since 8AM and am very weary.
Chris is to be cremated and buried in his hometown. I hope he has the peace in death that he never had in life.
RIP my friend.
Meantime, a Christmas card arrived from a friend I haven't heard from in many years. A bright spot in my day.

Mein gott, Mary! Wish there was something I could do -- you've got a cosmic hug coming your way. My thoughts are with you, too.

Mom's funeral and interment went without a hitch yesterday -- although the organist was making a valiant, though unsuccessful attempt to turn the hymns into polkas... The snow held off until early evening.

Got to see cousins and kids (now adults, of course) of neighbors whom I haven't seen for almost 50 years...and some elderly relatives I hadn't expected to see again.

Hope to have lunch with a cousin and see a few other people (though it looks as if my high school classmate and I won't get closer than the phone -- dealing with cleaning out her mother's old apartment and dealing with her mother now in assisted living are taking up all her time.

Have to check AccuWeather to see what I might run into on my 6 a.m. escape on Friday.

Sinsull, that is tragic - the last memory of a friend should be of a happy time. (That's why I never go up to view the body at open casket funerals.) I hope you can share stories with others and all come out with a better mental image.

gnu, it is five months since they hit the "reset" button at work, with the new dean playing favorites and treating us like checkers on a board, jumping people over others without consideration of qualifications or job experience. The job I created over the years, duties added by me or suggested by my boss as the need was perceived, there are now four people doing that job as a marketing department. Guess who had to train them, and hand over huge amounts of information and files? I still get questions about how to do stuff. Why am I not there? Because my MA is in English, not an MLS, but for this job the MLS is not necessary. The job description lists everything I did but has two extra words: "librarian preferred." I'm now in the basement preparing to digitize old analog recordings and to sort through institutional repository data dumps to determine what photos were put in (without the proper metadata.) I reported to the dean personally for 16 years and now I'm in the basement, out of sight, out of mind. Just visualize the guy in Peabody's Improbable History sweeping up after the horses.

My year has been particularly rough at work. At home everyone is healthy and thriving, but the reorganization at my university library last summer managed to throw a lot of workers under the bus into some really bizarre new jobs.

Well...I flew out of Manchester, NH at 6 a.m. and finally landed in Milwaukee at 6 p.m. (EST). And in between was quite an adventure...with too many people and not enough oxygen. (Finally figured out a couple flights into the odyssey that dry, rebreathed air was what was complicating things, though not badly).

Got to BWI and found my connecting flight to Milwaukee had been cancelled. The sent me (immediately -- it was boarding, so no time to stop in the loo) first to Louisville, then (on the same plane) to Orlando (that leg of the flight the plane was full of exuberant kids). Spent about three hours in Orlando because the flight to Milwaukee had been delayed. Sure wasn't dressed for Florida! But, at least, I had time to grab something to eat besides the peanuts served on the plane. Finally got on a jam-packed flight to Milwaukee. Lot's of turbulence in between, but we landed safely in light snow at 6 p.m. EST. Arghhh! Then a looooooooong walk to the central part of the terminal. My sister hadn't made it back to I crossed over to the cab stand and headed to her place.

Sooooo good to finally get there! We talked, ordered Chinese which took another hour to get there.

Oh, yeah, when I finally got to sleep, I slept well.

Pete, the wrong kind of dairy and not enough fruits, veggies, and whole grains were my problem--I think. I had been very busy and because I had plenty of food on hand, I didn't bother to go to the store for what I should have. Instead, I ate what I had on hand. I was also getting low on milk, so I was eating a lot of cheese for protein and calcium. Without the fruits, veggies, and whole grains, I think that's what did me in. I was careful not to eat stuff that would make my blood glucose crazy but never gave a thought to the IBS!

I hope we hear from Linn about her flight out. Now let's concentrate on her flight back! Maybe it will take off on time and catch a strong tail-wind so that she lands early!

ChanteyLass, I had that IBS, oh, a long time ago, 1997 I think. I'd been working in the Netherlands for a few weeks so my diet had changed whilst I was there (lots of dairy foodstuff). I remember driving home to Bedford from Luton airport thinking I was going to die from the pain - every bend in the road brought more agony. Doc thought I had appendicitis until he got the results of the scans.

Fortunately for me, the tablets he prescribed worked very quickly and it hasn't reoccurred. But it wasn't funny.
