TB had seen a van on their website so we decided to look at it. It happened to be parked right under a sign that said "Push, Pull and Drag $2,000 2 days only".

So, saving $2,000 on a newer, better for me vehicle or spend half that to fix a vehicle I rarely drive because it is difficult to get in and out. No brainer so we bought it then and there..

As for a name, it is Maroon in colour and has five doors so I called it Levine. Voice fans and People Magazine readers will get the references

You got to name it Pac!
Does it wear a white t-shirt and have a scruffy (gorgeous) beard? Twinkly eyes?

My guess is zombies. Zombies attacked your house, Joann.

We laugh, we cry, we share, we worry, we fuss, and we talk. This is a family, passionate about everything of the family, centered around cooking and providing good meals for our families.

And when the worst of the worst happens, such as our recent loss of dear Kadesma, we circle the wagons, so to speak. Everyone supports everyone else while also letting their feelings be known. Kadesma's family has our love and our support, which is only the pressing of a power button away.

I know we aren't allowed to discuss PMs, but I've got to say this also: Katie showed me the thread in which she lost her beloved Buck. The wagons were circled again, and so very many of you rallied around her. She needed you all, and you were there.

So, tonight I suppose, the answer to what I am doing now is thinking of this wonderful website, and I feel so blessed to have found it.

With love,
~Cat
I am counting on you and everyone here to entertain me after I have surgery. It's why I hang around, because we are family.

Hugs,

Well, I can put one of TB's t-shirts over the driver's seat. As for the beard and eyes, I guess I will have to put a picture of the "real thing" on the dash....on second thought, it would be too distracting and I would get into a few rear-enders!

OK, but I won't sing or dance. If you laugh too hard, your stitches may pop.

That is the huge lesson I learned over the last 6 months. I thought leaving here and concentrating on the "real world" while I dealt with my declining health was the right thing to do. My very close friends of course have supported me, and family, but everyone else has kind of forgotten I exist because I am not out and about so much.

Then I check in here and everyone is so loving and interested in how I am doing. I am working on the voice activation software and it is getting better (this one is typed as my hands are okay at the moment and I have a cold so my voice isn't working).

PF, I will be here for you after surgery if you will be here for me when all I can do is curl up in my recliner with my notebook/tablet!

You can sing and dance for me, Andy. I don't have any stitches, and so far laughter has helped not hindered my chronic pain. We actually did laughter exercises in my pain clinic!

Oh, Shrek wouldn't like, he would have to clean up after. Okay, no singing or dancing...but a few jokes couldn't hurt.

I'll be here or rather I'll be in bed mostly...but once I'm slept out I will be online. So, we can curl up together.
