Real Women Drink Akvavit: Grandma died Tuesday morning


Warm hugs - I'm glad you're handling this s well.
 
2013-07-19 06:30:02 PM  
Thank you, ArmednHammered. I actually went through most of the grieving process before she died, which was actually one of the harder parts of it because when I realized that's what I was doing, I felt incredibly guilty. I have no idea why, but I did. At this point there really is just trying to remember what "normal" life is like again. After over 10 years of caring for her, about half of those on each end of it being full-time, hands on type care, that's going to be hard to remember how to do. We'll get there, though.

Greetings All!!
I've pretty much been just lurking for the past few months. (Had a bizzie!)
I also, recently... 'fell over the line' of crazy-cat-lady.
I went from my 3...to my 4....still on the *CCL - in training" side....
to being the slave to a blended clowder of 9. That's nine.

I am SO proud of this photo.
It took them only 6 weeks to train me to ...roll out the rug (aka trough), ring the bell to 'awaken/arouse' them, and get 8 bowls filled with their treat of gooshey foods. ( I split 3 cans 8 ways... and give the 'old man' a tsp &½ of baby food)

Clockwise....starting with the red collar... the backs/butts belong to:
Psycho, Thomas, Jazz, Luscious, Buddy, Gizzard, Mystery, Lucky.

This is the 'old man', Koa:

    Neat video.. great fireman.. those guys are awesome !  Hope we have a sad- free weekend.. last weekend was rough.. my condolences to those who lost buddies...


Can't guarantee sad free but I can guarantee grace free. Cosmo tripped me when I got home so I'm all black and blue.

Been a really long week in the basement of Mordor. Told the boss I'd had enough for a week and left at 2:00.
Went out and found some of the "Farking Wheaton w00tstout" made by Drew, Wil Wheaton and Greg Koch of Stone Brewery. I have to say, it's pretty damn tasty. It's dark, thick, hasn't been hopped to death and best of all it's 13% alcohol, what's not to like? I grabbed three of the 24 Oz. bottles and I don't expect them to last the night. ;-) It's good enough that I'll buy a case if my local store has one available.
/not a paid spokesman etc. etc.

Please excuse me while I go whip up some chili for dinner so I can do the following later....

The biddies came in the mail on Wendsday morning, one did not survive the trip but the rest are looking really healthy and strong. My son identified the free exotic breed as a blue chochin. A large breed with feathers all the way down its legs, they will cover its feet when it is grown. I have named it Frodo.
[fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net image 850x637]

Don't they tell you what they are sending??? Or is it supposed to be a surprise?

The free one is a surprise chick. I think they are just finding a way to get rid of excess roosters, I will be very surprised if Frodo is a hen. But it is fun to try and guess what they sent.  My son was able to get the breed right away because the chicks of this breed are so distinctive. It is a very calm chick compared to the others, he kind of looks like a little penguin next to the others.  I moved them into the little house with my old crippled hen Suzy, she just gave me a WTF look when I started putting them in with her. She pecked at the few that came near her but did not make any effort to attack them. In a few days she should start to mother them. She fostered King George and Esmeralda for me when they were biddies.

Would that cause troubles with King George as Frodo gets older?

Spinnyr, Koa is a handsome kitteh and no, I do not think he wants to share either. I've always like Abyssinians. He's got some neat coloring. Most of the Abs I've seen around here are the Ruddy variety.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Thanks much to everyone for the love and support.
tigerose: Real Women Drink Akvavit I am sorry for your loss. She joins the ancestors, there to feast and tell tales for all eternity.

Hugs to you and yours.

She's probably one of my disir now, just the "Why is it always so dark in here? Open the blinds and get some light in here!" or "you can buy clothes that AREN'T black, you know. What's wrong with pink?" or "I don't like that man. He needs a hair cut. Are those tattoos? Dear Jesus! Is he GERMAN?!?" variety instead of the helpful advice variety. LOL! I love my Grandma and her stubborn self. Actually, she was Lutheran, so they're probably swilling coffee and trying to convince the big dude/dudette/whatevers may or may not be there/wherever to go easy on the Heathen granddaughter.

For those unfamiliar with disir, think "ancestral mothers", but the original Germanic tribes version (Scandinavians being one of the original Germanic tribes and blah, blah, blah).

[funnymill.com image 400x555]


So sorry for your loss. Hugs for both you and your mom. And scritches for GoGo Beastie.

I can almost hear my own family members asking those sorts of questions except most of them are Catholic. The thought of them chatting up the great sky wizard(ess) makes me smile.

Why is it they will race you up the steps but never down?
Biscuit and Nate (especially Biscuit) must ALWAYS be the first to the top of the stairs. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't give you a head start.

There is always the slim chance that Frodo is a girl, if he decides to be a roo my son has dibs on him. When George came in the garage he went up to the cage and checked out the little ones. They looked so small next to him. They all stopped peeping and stood in awe as the looked them them over.
I moved them into the new little hen house with old Suzy last evening. Today she is keeping an eye on them but they are not too sure of the giant chicken in their world. Hatchery chicks have never seen an adult bird. They have much to learn.

Just realized that I don't have any pix of Thomas standing up. Actually, he doesn't do much of that. The vet (Sainted.... from Caring Hands, here in Vegas) that came out here (yes...to the house...yay!)...said, "No, he's not big. No, he's not overweight. He's fat."

catmandu: Many of you may remember when this photo went viral (man comforting his arthritic, geriatric dog in the waters of Lake Superior because floating like that gave the dog relief):

[i283.photobucket.com image 634x416]

Schoep, the dog, went over the Rainbow bridge on Wednesday at the age of 20. His servant, John, received so much money in donations for his care that he is now using the extra to help "30 or 40 Schoeps" who live with low income families in the north Wisconsin area get medical care (including geriatric care and spaying/neutering of the youngsters). John credits Schoep with saving his life when he was suicidal and wants to do what he can to help others keep their pets.


I am so sad for his loss.  I remember the story well!  Thanks for sharing that with us.

My day has been really crazy (no internet, then tech support, then internet, then phone calls, then landlord visit!)  I am behind on catching up on the thread.  Will do my best!!!  Might get caught up in time for bed....

I checked on microsoft's website and there aren't any SP's available for Win8 yet - I'll keep checking. I've lived with Vista for five years. If I can do that I think I'll probably be able to deal with Win8. All I need is time and patience, neither of which I have an overabundance of right now
