march 28 2015
ready set go !!!
yesterday we unloaded the fun fund into a credit card for grace to go  and with twan pick up the
 4 pups from the netherlands....  they will come with all properly done papers, reg with the duetschdoggie
the german registration for dogs.  it would be possible to transferr the reg to the akc  - i have never bothered.
akc provides a strange co-owner system-    i don't know how we could list all of you as co- owners 
- but that is what you all are. make no doubt  without the chicken bricks we would not even be....
 and without the funfund i would not have tried importing these.  
it is a gamble .... we gambled on kiarra and i was very worried we had lost the bet  
with that bad uti she had-- but she is beautiful now...
************
my chore of the day is to work up the  finanicial plans for the next 2 years. and send them to the  annenberg foundation
so i am very glad to have 3 cut and pastes for this dd..

.we're on our way to the next
part of the journey of getting home, but this time as Rodes, Party of Three. The
part I had really wanted everyone to see was a sign that Ethel and I made,
telling everyone thank you.

I am a four year paraplegic and during
that four years, I became Miss Wheelchair South Carolina, I graduated Cum Laude
from college and survived my husbands deployment. But it wasn't until the other
day going shopping at Old Navy with Ethel did I feel as independent as I was
before my accident. Thank you everyone for supporting SDP, so that I could have
this gift. 

The photo is of Ethel with our T-shirt blanket that I made when I
was first accepted as an applicant for SDP.
If you like it, I'd love to have it in the Daily Doggie

HI CARLENE,
I WANTED SHARE A FEW TOUCHING MOMENTS I EXPERIENCED LAST WEEK. IT STARTED WITH BETTY BEING ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL’S EMERGENCY ROOM ON WEDNESDAY. A BIT OF A SCARE, BUT SHE IS OKAY. BETTY WAS TRANSPORTED BY AMBULANCE TO THE ER. THERE IS NOT A LOT OF ROOM IN THE AMBULANCE SO IVY AND I HAD TO FOLLOW BY CAR. ONCE WE REACHED THE HOSPITAL, BETTY WAS ADMITTED AND THE NURSES AND DOCTORS GOT TO WORK. IVY AND I HAD TO WAIT A FEW MOMENTS WHILE THE MEDICAL STAFF DID THEIR THING. IVY WAS NOTICEABLY STRESSED BECAUSE SHE COULDN’T GET TO OR SEE BETTY. ONCE THE MED STAFF GAVE THE OKAY, THEY ALLOWED IVY AND I BACK TO HER ROOM. AS SOON AS IVY SET EYES ON BETTY SHE JUMPED INTO HER HOSPITAL BED WITH A PRONOUNCED HAPPY TAIL. IT’S AMAZING, THEY WERE ONLY SEPARATED FOR LESS THAN AN HOUR, BUT IVY REACTED LIKE THEY WERE SEPARATED FOR GREATER THAN A DAY. AN AWESOME SHOW OF DEVOTION!
ANOTHER TOUCHING MOMENT WAS IVY’S ENCOUNTER WITH A YOUNG GIRL IN THE ER WHO WAS DISTRESSED HAVING BEEN TOLD THAT SHE WOULD HAVE TO BE TRANSFERRED TO A BOSTON HOSPITAL. AS BETTY AND IVY WERE WALKING BY THIS GIRL’S ROOM (RETURNING FROM AN IVY POTTY BREAK) BETTY SLOWED DOWN SO THAT THE GIRL COULD TAKE A PEEK AT IVY. WITHIN A MATTER OF 5 SECONDS, A SMILE RETURNED TO THE YOUNG GIRL AND SHE PREPARED FOR HER TRIP TO BOSTON. IVY ONLY HAD TO BE IVY TO GET THE GIRL TO SMILE.

i really should have  used the word SOME  more often in describing my experiences with the law profession.  this cp- kathleen -is clearly not one of the ambulance chasers to which i referreed in yesterday's dd,   my children call me up on too much "profiling" -- and i have to remind them i am one of the generations of being called a "dumb broad"-- i should be more careful .
sorry kathleen  i take some of it back.....:)

HELLO, CARLENE,
 I'M VERY SORRY TO HEAR THAT SDP WAS DUPED BY AN IMPOSTOR. I KNOW THAT I WOULD BE FURIOUS IF I WERE TAKEN IN BY A WOMAN CLEARLY ADEPT AT THE LONG CON. KNOWING THAT MANY OTHERS WERE ALSO TRICKED MAY NOT BE A COMFORT TO YOU, BUT IT CONFIRMS THAT OTHER KIND AND INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WERE TAKEN IN BY HER AS WELL. I'M NOT SURE HOW THE SHOCKING NEWS OF JOANNE'S DUPLICITY TURNED INTO A TIRADE ABOUT LAWYERS. AFTER THIRTY YEARS OF BEING ONE I SUPPOSE I SHOULD HAVE A THICK SKIN AND LAUGH IT OFF, BUT TODAY IT HURTS. YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS OF HEARING SO-CALLED LAWYER JOKES HAS WORN ME DOWN, TOO.

 THE DD IS YOUR DAILY OPPORTUNITY TO "LET 'ER RIP", AND I DON'T WANT THAT TO EVER CHANGE. BUT TODAY, IT HURTS A BIT. I KNOW ABOUT YOUR NEGATIVE BIAS TOWARDS ATTORNEYS FROM PREVIOUS DD's. PLEASE TRY TO REMEMBER THAT MOST OF US ARE HARD WORKING, ETHICAL PEOPLE WITH HIGH MORAL STANDARDS. WE AREN'T ALL - NOT EVEN A MAJORITY OF US - MONEY-GRUBBING BASTARDS OUT TO MAKE A BUCK. 

DUE TO ILLNESS, I'VE BEEN OUT OF THE LAW ARENA FOR MANY YEARS. I ONCE TOLD A CHICAGO COP THAT I "USED" TO BE A LAWYER. HE SAID. "ONCE A LAWYER, ALWAYS A LAWYER. IT'S THE SAME AS BEING A MARINE." I SUPPOSE THERE IS SOME TRUTH TO THAT. I WAS PROUD TO BE A LAWYER REPRESENTING PEOPLE WHO WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST IN THEIR PLACES OF WORK, CHILDREN WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES WHO WERE NOT RECEIVING THE SERVICES MANDATED BY FEDERAL LAW, PARENTS WHO NEEDED TO GO TO COURT TO BECOME LEGAL GUARDIANS OF THEIR DISABLED CHILDREN WHEN THEY REACHED THE AGE OF MAJORITY, AND MANY OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAD SUFFERED A WRONG THAT HAD A REMEDY AT LAW.
 I WAS PROUD TO UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW. I WOULD DEFEND YOUR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH EVEN IF I DISAGREED WITH WHAT YOU SAID.

 NOTHING YOU SAID TODAY CHANGES MY ATTITUDE TOWARDS SDP. I SIMPLY WANTED TO GIVE YOU MY REACTION. I WILL CONTINUE READING THE DD, WATCHING THE PUPPIES AND DOGS, BUYING CHICKEN BRICKS (I'M PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF THE SHAT UPON SOCIETY), MARVELING AT YOUR CREATIVITY, AND ENJOYING THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING A WITNESS TO ALL THAT YOU, YOUR STAFF, AND VOLUNTEERS DO.
 THANK YOU. RESPECTFULLY YOURS, 
KATHLEEN
