Officer down

Sunday one of our police officers was shot and killed in the line of duty.

Another officer is in critical condition and his K-9 is also in critical condition.

The office who died was only 28 years old. His birthday would have been next week. He was
a veteran and served two tours in Aghanistan and Iraq. And yet he was killed at home.

This is something that hits a small town very hard. although I did not know him personally my
heart and prayers go out to his family, especailly his wife.

This is a pretty safe town. Our police department is small and this town is like a family. Typical midwest.
That's a compliment. People here just do things for each other and really don't expect anything
in return. Like I said Typical midwest. I love living in the midwest.

Please say a prayer for this officer who lost his life just doing his job. His family, our police department.

Please also say a prayer for the officer still recovering and his beloved dog and partner.
Both of which remain in critical condition.

Be safe everybody. Have a great day !

a little play time

Now that the snow has melted we took the dogs out back for some major play time.

Well, really only Noelle and ARod. Ripley, is older and he parked himself on the couch.

The doggies played for quite a while. The big one chased the little one, the little one chased the big one.

Every once in a while one would hide behind the gas grill and sneak up on the other.

It was so funny. They barked and yelped. and we all had a great time.

Afterward, they slept on whatever piece of furniture they could find, Noelle is limping a bit.
She's 8 and ARod is 2 1/2. Do the match .

Noelle is also 39 lbs and ARod is 11 lbs.

It was alot of fun.

Have a great day everybody.

MS Awareness Week

This week I sent emails to about 25 friends & family that simply said
"Happy MS Awareness Week , I'm sure you are all doing your part to raise awareness
and help find a cure"

I recieved about 10 replies of  "Yes, I am doing my part and we will find a cure...together",
"Believe", " stay strong", "you inspire me" "Let's find a cure" etc.

And of course, I recieved one negative reply. Anybody want to guess who?
My "family" of course. Sheesh. They made my MS about them again.
Wasn't going to even mention it because I'm sure they are excited it is being written about.
Whatever !

Been a rough week. Neuro appt ! Love my dr's. Having some MS Complications

goodbye blackberry

Yesterday I traded in my blackberry for a iphone 4G. And although
I have only had it for a few hours. I love it already.

Wow ! what a difference. It is much easier to use. Apple actually has a tutorial for alot
of stuff. Stuff I haven't gotten to yet..
I set up two email accounts, have 2 to go. Set up my voice mail. Transfered my calendar, photos, and contacts from the blackberry and I'll work a little on it every day.

It has a touch screen and I wasn't sure if I could use that but I am really enjoying it.

Goodbye blackberry, FLUSH !! Just kidding. I am going to donate it to the soldiers once I
am sure everything is off of it.

Have a great day everybody !

how much damage?

7 million dollars damage at the State Capitol.

Most of which is the result of protestors who don't even live
in our State.

It makes me sick. If I went to the Capitol and made a mess I would be arrested.

So who is going to pay for this? Our out of town visitors at the Capitol?
NO that would be me. The Disabled chick who doesn't have a job but gets
her disability check taxed.

Good grief. Does anybody else want to move out this country?

Have a great day everybody. It is MS Awareness month so let's paint the town ORANGE

The Wisconsin Uproar

In case you haven't read about it, Wisconsin is in a fight with passing the Governors Budget,

14 cowardly Senators ran across the border to Illinois. In the meantime our beautiful State Capitol
building is being thrashed by protestors.

My question is why? This building is a gem. A beautiful piece of architecture that now has taped signs
on the woodwork. The marbles floors are covered with litter. People were bringing their pets there.

I can only imagine the stench in the building. This building belongs to the residents of Wisconsin.
Not the protestors being bussed in from every state.
So who is going to clean our building? And will it ever be the same? I see the pictures on TV and
I am sickened at how bad it looks.

Will I ever get to meet with my Legislatures again? I know of many groups that had to cancel their
events to meet with their legislature because it is unsafe for them to attend.

Oh cowardly Senators come back home. If you don't like the bill just vote. Take your stand there. Do
you job you were elelcted to do so we the people of Wisconsin can have our legislators back.

We have issues too. It's not about you, its about us. Every taxpaying citizen of this great state.
The state with the Super Bowl champions ( thanks for poo poo ing that victory).
This is a State of so many things and we the public are sick of the protestors who don't even live here.

Grow up people, give us our state back........

Have a great day everybody
