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.

Tami, good luck with all of the doings - and give us a report in the declutter thread every so often!

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. I'm looking for a new job, hopefully at the same university to keep my health benefits and retirement in place.

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.

Hope you all will pull whatever weather strings you can influence so I can have an uneventful flight to Milwaukee for my mother's funeral. I really hate flying between New England and Milwaukee any time between October and May -- and I've gotten delayed in May! I'd really like to be back, as scheduled, next Friday so I can get to the Friday Press Room session and the monthly sea music (and seasonal) session the next day.

I'm packed; traveling light. Have a couple minor errands before I head to The Press Room. I'll probably leave the session early to go to friends' house where I'll catch a few zzzs before they drive me in the wee hours to Manchester for my 6 a.m. flight. Jeri will come everyday to get the mail, feed and water the cats, and reassure them that I'm not leaving forever.

Wendy, I'm sorry your mom's having more difficulty coping but I'm glad Billybob's test results were satisfactory. I am also sorry about the death of your friend Derek.

I've been away from Mudcat for a few days due to a minor health blip of my own. I'll try not to get too graphic! Many years ago I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. I've kept it under control with diet for so long that I rarely think about it except when I have very occasionally had to boost my system with an over-the counter remedy. However on Tuesday night I realized I had a problem. I made a late-night pharmacy run. Still later, really very early Wednesday morning, I knew my attempts weren't yielding results, so at about 4:30 AM I drove myself to the county hospital which is only about 5 miles away. Tuesday there'd been snow, but by then the roads were clean and dry and the emergency room was not busy, so I was seen quickly. Among other things, my heartbeat was a little high and my magnesium level was low. I was given magnesium tablets and put on an IV. My heart calmed down. I was treated for the IBS and sent home feeling slightly but not completely better in about two-and-a-half hours with instructions to take more than the usual number of doses of a stronger-than-my-usual over-the-counter med for at least two days and should never be far from the bathroom! Tonight I hope to take my last dose of that med and be out and about tomorrow--if I have finally caught up on sleep!

So sad today to hear about the death of my lovely friend Derek " The Amazing Mr Smith" He made so many people laugh with his incredible sense of humour, I remember him standing in front of a window at our Folk Club in Thorpe le Soken with a bird cage on his head singing " I taught I saw a tweetie bird", much to the consternation of the folks standing at the bus stop on the pavement outside the pub.

Not many people knew he was a fantastic musician, and a lover of nature. He spent hours sitting on our lawn looking at the frogs and newts in our wild life pond. A wonderful observer of people, a dedicated scientist before he became a full time entertainer. I first met him at Farningham Folk club in 1970, he played at all the folk clubs I organised and last played for us in the marquee in our garden at one of our " house concerts"

I shall miss his friendship and the laughter he gave us and send love and condolences to his daughter Rosie.

Wendy xx

Goodness, I have been away from the Rainbow too long! Nigel, thank you for thinking of us, we went to the beach hut on Sunday, a beautiful sunny day and, miracle of miracles, our hut is fine but the huts either side were badly damaged ,as were most of the others. Being on stilts the sea surged underneath and pushed the decking skywards in most cases and the huts at Walton near the coastguard station were mostly washed away. My brother was told to evacuate his flat on the quay in Harwich but fortunately had no damage on his return.

But all this is nothing compared to the sadness and illness that other crew members have had. Welcome on board Linn, you will be enveloped with love on this ship!

Mother is progressing well, we have had a few hiccups with the 24 hour care, but she is walking with a frame but getting very frustrated with the cast on the arm as she does not understand that she fell . The pelvis fracture isn't giving her very much pain and the main problem is getting her confidence back. The dementia however has gone down a level, maybe due to shock? She is very tearful and confused.

But Billy and I have managed to visit Christopher for his birthday and again last weekend saw Giles Brandreth at Christopher's theatre
( very funny he was too!) Samantha and I went to the carol concert at Holy Trinity in Sloane Square on Monday evening. It was compared by John Suchet and Brian Blessed read " The night before Christmas" It was a lovely evening.

Have to admit the past three weeks have been " not the best" I have felt very down worrying about mother, but am counting my blessings and sending my love to all needing a hug!

Oh and Billy had a positive visit to see his consultant today, all his blood tests were good, still in remission!

Not long till Christmas, a time for the little ones, nativity plays, carol singing and sharing love and peaceful thoughts, and thanking Nigel for Jane's Rainbow.

with love
