Bad Seeds

And then there are those that get stuck in your teeth...won't even go there, that's a whole 'nuther story!

These days...I have very little personal "space".  You know it's strange when you actually enjoy waiting at the dentist.  I think that has been one of the hardest parts of this phase in my life.  While I am the flaming extrovert, few know how much I need a defined time that belongs to me and me alone.  Miss Universe has helped me to understand that it is there..I need only claim it as it presents at the dentist.

Princess Planet

Is it just me...or are folks just gettin' so self involved that they do not realize this planet is indeed shared with others? I wanted to "jerk a few knots" today...seriously, I could have ended up on the front page of the Richmond paper given my agitation level. Anybody who knows me knows...I am NOT the Princess of Patience, but I will make you smile as I rush by and I will always say "cuse me" and thank you so much.

I hear the train a'commin....

You know...sometimes it's hard to sit back and watch a train's like some folks ignore all the signals...the whistles...the flashing lights....the bells....folks on the side jumpin' up and down and flappin their hands. 

 I suppose, when you've said all you can say...concern can start to look and feel like just plain "meddlin". It's hard to know when to step back and mind your own.

The Memory Bank Progect

So I'm layin’ in bed the way I do after the cat has gotten me up for a snack, and I’m thinkin' what can I do to support this effort to end Alzheimer’s? Well, no sooner questioned, than answered, through the memory of Mother Theresa’s quote:

"We can do no great things, only small things with great love."
as it is with my hopscotch brain, that morphed into; “small change adds up” and that into, The Memory Bank Project®.
So just for September, (or longer if you so desire) won’t you join me in makin’ nightly deposits in an effort to help make the big changes in research, policy, and care that are so desperately needed by the 35 million (and counting) folks living with Alzheimer’s Disease.
So go pull a nice glass jar out of your recycling and stick today’s card in it and start makin’ change!
At the end of the month, simply count the “change” you made and write a check to your local Alzheimer’s Foundation. You can find it at
. along with some other great stuff.
Next year, who knows…I might even have some purple pigs made up for ya’ll.
Share if you know somebody who just might be interested. I’ll contact the Association and tell’um to start looking for the checks!
  All the love, TL
