Re: My dear Joon...

I hope you or your dad-person had a Happy Father's Day... Mike was here and we went out to the cemetery with a big bouquet. It always falls to me to say prayers; Duane said that I'm the head of the household, and I guess that's what means to him. So, there's the Prayer for the Departed , the short H...

Re: My dear Joon...

Because we attended this special Mass, I thought I might redo the post - that's why I deleted the one from this morning. June has been so busy. We've had appointments every single week, doctors everywhere except for our eyes. And I haven't made an appointment with them yet. I will. It's just not a p...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

Serried Lines (from Ruhi Book 4; in honor of the Bicentennial Birthdays of Baha'u'llah and The Bab; inspired by a quote of Abdu'l-Baha'; musically channeled by Munirih Sparrow.) O ye beloved of the Lord! This day is the day of union, the day of the ingathering of all mankind. 'Verily God loveth thos...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

As One Single Force (a song inspired by a quote of 'Abdul-Baha's; Ruhi Book 10) May the favors of the Blessed Beauty, Baha'u'llah, encompass you. May the Sun of Reality shining illuminate your heart. May you all become united. May you all become assured. May you all serve the Cause of God as One Sin...

Re: We Are Hobbits of the Shire

Gentleman Anne Lister (3 April 1791 – 22 September 1840) Asking, "Is that a fella?" Asking, "Is that a man?" A boutonniere of Halifax, smiling, raised her hand. "I'm a lady. I'm a woman. I'm a woman lady," says Anne. In Western Yorkshire County, she strides across the l...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Thanks for keeping all of us in the loop, Paddy. I'm glad your mom's back home, and you take care of yourself, too, love :hug:. That's a good idea, to have help with mealtime. I wish I did when my mother-in-law was sick. There was a visiting nurse from Hospice, but she seemed to come by only to look...

Re: My dear Joon...

The neuro appointment was confusing. It seems that there's a combination of Parkinson's and dyskinesia going on with the Honey. So, there's an MRI scheduled (don't know when, they haven't told us, but the office said that it's coming), and then we go back to the behavioral health place. One of the m...

Re: My dear Joon...

It's been a awful for week for most... There were a total of fifteen tornados that ripped through the state; at least three were EF 4's. One northern town has been flattened; there's 200+ in hospital, and one fatality. How we got away with only boiling our water for three days - and we had the power...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

For the past two days, I've had to boil water for us to drink. But at least we have water, after a handful of tornados came through the state. The damage is just incredible. It's all north of us, but it's affecting everybody. Three dozen people are in hospital from injuries; one man in his eighties ...

Re: My dear Joon...

The last Black Madonna came on Thursday. She is bigger than the rest and just full of color. Also she's the only one that was completely destroyed in life, at least among the ones that I own. During the French Revolution, Our Lady of Le-Puy was taken from her perch and burnt. They'd built a pyre, an...

A Raptor's Grace (for Mr. President & The First Lady) We abide in the height of the tulip tree where our nest sits, lapped in bark, and there we mated, and there we waited for our eggs to make their mark. My snow-capped lord has brought me fish; a meal so fresh, it breathes. We toss and turn ea...

Re: My dear Joon...

I can't wait until we see the neurologist next month. The Honey is having trouble with his legs, and today, he was shuffling as he walked. Most days, he has this bouncy gait where he looks like the world's worst step-dancer, and after he took a walk, he complained of weakness in his one leg. Still, ...
