Only The Good!

Tonight as I arrived home, I checked my facebook and had not 1 but 2 e- mails.
First, Shelly accepted me as her friend, which was nice (thank you Shelly), AND the #2 e-mail was from Doug Kershaw. I'm a small town nobody, but I adore, adore, adore listening to this man play the fiddle! AND to have him take the time to send me an e-mail, knocked my socks off.........THANK YOU made my day!

Save me from wanna-be's

For the past couple of days, I have been sitting at the hospital with a couple of the individuals. I don't mind sitting, because, it is somewhat restful, and the food in the cafeteria is good.

The reason I decided to do it this time, is a bit two-fold, ie: the pulls are so screwed up and we have a girl who is on light duty, who is W A Y out there.

She believes her daughter was born to cast out demons and her daughter's boyfriend is enjoying being periodically possessed.

I listened to her rhetoric and handed her a total line of bull crap, only to be told that I was correct in what I said. I told her there were 767,256 demons and she stated she knew that I was right...spooky to say the least.

This person has alienated almost everyone she has worked with, and I attract lost causes, puppies, children and alcholics. I just can't abide posers. She tries to tell me some of the most outlandish things, and I'm just not in the mood for her witchy parlor games. I'm about ready to go bad witch on her ass, and I don't need the bad karma.

Well, that's where I stand right now, caught between the demons and the deep blue funk!

As I sit here writing this down, I realize that this is good for a laugh, and I certainly could use a good laugh or twenty! I hope anyone reading this can sympathise with my evasive techniques.

Holiday Wishes (little late)

The feast of Ostara takes its name from the Goddess Eostre, of whom little is known, except that she must have been a Goddess of spring, fertility, rebirth, and the rising sun. Her name is etymologically connected with both the "east," and with a word for "shining; glorious." The Ostara worship was so strong in the Germanic lands that the somewhat similar Christian feast of rebirth and renewal was given the Goddess's name. Bede recounts that the Christian Paschal feast was named after the heathen Goddess Eostre, and so this celebration is still named Easter among the Christians. There is no specific date on which the Ostara feast must be held. The three mightiest times at this turning of the year are the equinox itself and the new and full moons following the equinox. It is probably better in general to celebrate Ostara during the waxing moon.

Only the Good

Today was the first day of the second half of a six day mini-vacation for me. That was enough to be posted as my only the good, but I also got to treat a friend to a realllllly good fish dinner. Number 2 reason to post to only the good, but there were a few young, good looking men who were playing pool right beside the table (eye candy) again, reason number 3, they were sweet and flirting with the 2, ladies (Marilyn & me) ...reason #4. The conversation was good, the atmosphere was fine, and the beer was cold...reasons 5 & 6...Now to say the one young man was sooo good looking would be an understatement, BUT he was wearing a recent fashion statement that I cannot understand, ie: his pants were worn below his buttock and belted there, so I had to speak up. I waited and went up to him as I was leaving and asked IF I might make a comment and not anger him...he smiled and his buddies started to giggle. Evidently, they too had made a comment on his style choice, as their pants were properly placed upward.

He was so cute, and I said "I know it's the style, but I am an old woman, and I can speak for the majority of us, we check out young men, especially when they are as handsome as you, (here is when he turned RED)but the first thing we check out is the bootee, and you're not giving yours a chance!" What a sweetie he was, just saying "I have great bootee!"
AT 60 you can get away with outlandish things you can't at 20 something. Being 60 is my reason #7 ....all in all it was a good time.

a good day except for...

Yesterday we took the ladies to dinner at the Golden Corral, followed by shopping at Kraynaks. This is usually a grand time, but this trip was marred by a single family of 8 people who are the most ignorant I have ever encountered.

We were seated in a dining room off to the side, because it is hard to fit 5 wheelchairs, 3 walkers, and 4 staff around a single table, we needed 4 tables.

I understand, people wanting their dining experience to be somewhat exclusive, but at a restaurant like this, you expect, or should expect some diversity.

To say these people were rude, would be an understatement. I have been working with the special people for 10 years, but it never ceases to upset me when people act like they can catch mental retardation. I would have felt bad, had they simply have changed their seats, but the rude comments that came out of their and their children's mouth was just hurtfull.
These people don't care who they hurt.

Our ladies may be special, but they understand. They have feelings, and they know when people make fun of them.
I so wanted to go out and take their picture and post it, but that would have put me at their level of cruelty, so I can only hope that they never have to have anyone in their family who is special, because too many times, these special people only have the staff as family. Our ladies range of age from 50 to 91, some have family, some do not, but all are loved by us, the staff. And we are loved and enriched by them in return.

The Pre-dinner Dance

Last Saturday was our annual dinner dance for the individuals at work. We always have a great time, but we do not eat at the dance, because there is just too much to be done to enjoy a meal...and not enough time either.

The individuals eat there, dress for the occasion (sometimes) and have their pictures taken, and socialize with their peers.
Our ladies are older, and although the theme this year was the 70's, they opted to dress a little more "Today".
They all had a good time, and by the end of the night everyone was exhausted....especially the staff. The staff in our cottage less one enjoyed a pre-dance meal at Primo Barone's and had deserts to die for!
The others all opted for Creme Brulee, but I opted for the Raspberry thing that you can see here.
