Hi, and good morning, everyone:-) Got your coffee/tea/etc.? Good.
Yep, I'm still living in a whirl of panic about Mr. Leo, AKA Hubby. I am being optimistic with such enthusiasm 12 hours a day that I spend the other 12 exhausted and scared. I suck at all this "I'll be fine" routine. Too much PTSD (diagnosed) involved.
But I survived the dentist!
EDITED B/C DS MESSED UP FORMATTING AGAIN!!!!
Famous last words:
"The safety catch is pointless." (referring to the one on a gun)
"Hold my beer."
"Anyone can do that. Watch."
"The ice looks safe." (Where I grew up, alas, often someone's last words. At least till they were defrosted...)
"Of course, it's unloaded." (Admittedly, sometimes the last words someone *hears*, having trusted the speaker.)
"I don't need a map." (PRobably not the actual last words, bu tthe last ones known before someone sets off and is on an episode of Missing People..)
"They can't hit an elephant at this distance." Actual last words of US General J Sedgwick, when warned by an aide of enemy snipers. A sniper got him within moments of his saying that.
In 1808, Harvard University formed the first college orchestra in the US. And still, nobody pays much attention to these things. Poor college orchestras. *sigh*
Happy Birthday to Toronto, Ontario, Canada --- sort of. Today in 1834, it was renamed from "York" to Toronto.
In 1886, the first nursing journal was published. It was titled "The Nightingale" for famed nurse Florence Nightingale. More modern ones include "American Journal of Nursing" and similar.
Remember the ALamo! No, seriously. Today in 1836, the siege of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, ended. The army of 3,000 under Santa Anna finally defeated 189 very stubborn men. Nice video and stuff via this link, if you can get your video to work. Mine won't. http://www.thealamo.org/
In 1960, Switzerland finally got around to granting women the right to vote in municipal elections. Yeah. National, sure. Local, no. Wait, what? *headdesk*****
And now to pretend I'm okay. Whee. Healing to all, and hugs as well....
I really hate when DS stops recognizing line breaks/enters unless doubled.... ARGH.
Hey, all! Let us be thankful we have good things still happening, hwoever smal, okay? (Dahlia typo!)For example, I can still add and subtract in my head.I was at Starbucks. I handed them cash. NEVER do this.It took the cashier and a manager over a minute to try to work out the change due to me. I finally relieved them of their mental agony by letting them know it was thirty-five cents, and...
My 4 miscarraiges do not make me less of a mother, like my thearpist said yesterday when she signed the Certificates of life of me naming my 4 angel babies in heaven, i am a proud mother of 4 they just arent here on earth. The angel of life saw them and said too precious for earth and put them beside God. My babies now have names. William Richard (Richard is dads middle name) Olivia Jean (Jean...
