One of these days I will really get in trouble for the words flowing through my brain right now...it's probably what I would have said aloud if I had been there. Sorry about this LP, what a wicked person.

As far as I understand, here in Canada it's the police or the crown that presses the charges.

How do you know she doesn't need to be arrested. Yes, she needs help. If it's the first time, she probably won't go to jail. If she has done this before, she needs to be stopped. The system needs to know that she is doing this. What if she has done this lots of times and everyone figures she doesn't need to be arrested?

Sometimes people need a good scare, like being arrested, to wake up and see what they are doing and pull themselves together or get help.

Sorry for the rant.

There is more to why I asked that this person didn't get arrested - and not something I want to say here. It has to do with me as much as her. I know that type of anger, and I really don't think she wanted to or meant to hurt me. That's all I want to say in the matter.

Yes, the police press charges, but the fact that I didn't put in a complaint was key.

I appreciate all the support I get here, but please, know that I believe what I did was right and would like to close the discussion. Not the thread of course, just the discussion.

If you really want to talk about it with me you can PM me. I don't know that I will reveal all, but I respect your opinions.

Steve and I have recently got back from our nightly walk...we did about 5km, so feeling pretty good!

Now time for a Lemon Curd Tart

I was at my usual grocery store yesterday. Everyone in there knows me and I get along really well with them....not to mention we do a lot of business there. Anyway, I got my groceries and then had to go back to get my prescriptions as they weren't ready the first time. As I was coming back I realized I needed to pick up the TV magazines from this week and last week For the Fall Previews (as I say they like me so the lady doing it went into her pile of returns and got me one).

At this time the tills were full, but all I had was two magazines so one of the cashiers opened up and called me over. The lady behind me had a baby carriage with no baby - it was to hold her groceries. She started to move to the other till and the cashier said "no, this lady is first". I was carrying my bag of groceries, the magazines, bag of prescriptions and my cane so was slow moving over. The woman slammed the stroller into my right leg (my bad) one and still tried to beat me in line for her one loaf of bread.

I was in horrible pain and immediately had three staff at my side. While they were attending to me the woman was at the other till and was arguing at the price of her bread (she wanted it for $1.29 not $2.29).

A dear sweet staff member who loved my Dad grabbed my cane, went over to the woman and said "do you realize this woman walks with a cane and you could have really injured her". He came back and helped me to a chair.

I had to fill out a bunch of papers and the pain lessened (they got a bag of ice out of the cooler...by this time I had the associate manager there too). I said I wouldn't press charges.

But the store called this morning and said that they had to report it because it was an assault and in case either side took action they needed to cover their own liability. So hence the policeman.

Addie, he was super cute and in full regular uniform. But I am sure if I asked nice he would put on his dress reds for you!
^$^#&$*^&%(*&^()&_)& Is all I can say!!

Imagine having that bright red uniform walk through your door every night. Here comes Dudley Do Right! Be still my heart. The RCMP are a big hit here when they are on tour doing their routine. Always a sellout. I think Boston, more than anywhere else in the country has the strongest feelings of ties to England. Our Boston accent is the closest to the English accent. We pronouce a lot of our words like the British do. The word 'aunt' is a perfect example. We say 'arnt'. The rest of the country says 'ant'.

I find that I am slowly getting on a normal schedule and sleeping through the night. That is the good news. Oh, and Good Morning Everyone.

The bad news is that I looked up the medicine that my daughter will be on for her chemo treatment. Just when I have myself under control, I do something stupid like that. The side effects are enough to make anyone hesitate. But again, this is information I will keep to myself. The only one I can talk to it about it is Son #3, the P.A. What little I don't understand, he explains it to me. And he can calm me down. I have seen my kids through some bad accidents and life threatening illnesses. But this! Too much knowledge is not a good thing.

Immodium will be her best friend. She needs to have the doctor write a prescription for it so her insurance will pay for it. PM me for the instructions on taking it, they are different than what is on the bottle.

She is going to be on Temodar for the chemo. What else they are giving her I do't know. She finds it hard to talk. Her thought process is all screwed up due to the high doses of steroids she was on in the hospital. She was phased off them this past week. Right now paitence has to be my friend.

Will let you know what is going on with the bathroom problem.
