In honor of AlaskaDeb, do something a little crazy.

I know some folks are sorry that they missed out on the rose or aren't in a position to make a donation.  I have another idea and it won't cost a penny. How about we each do something a little insane, a little out of the ordinary? Remember when Deb had her bald head henna-ed? Or when she knit a set of reproductive organs (she was godmother of my left ovary)?  And I've seen a picture of her dancing in a pink ballgown, pretending she was in Oz on one of these threads.

I think doing something a little nuts this week would be a great tribute to Deb and her wonderful, warm spirit. God, I miss her.

Rock.  (Who is in South Africa and feels so very far away.)

    Hey, I do "nutty" every day.  But will do something extra nutty this week.  Let me contemplate.

    Shouldn't be too hard for me to come up with something, I do something insane or out of the ordinary almost everyday, LOL. I think I've got it, but can't tell you yet.

    Nice, Rock.  Very nice!  She'd love it - I hope someone tells John and the girls.

    So last night I danced around my apartment (with its floor to ceiling windows on two sides) and bellowed the Stones' Ruby Tuesday at the top of my lungs.

    At 6:00 pm Eastern Saturday, I stood outside CiCi's pizza and blew soap bubbles for Deb. My son thought I was crazy.

    Being in Manhattan most of the day, nothing will seem crazy...but I'll think of something.

    Sheila, I'm gonna buy me some soap bubbles and blow them off of my balcony onto the rush hour traffic.  That is a spectacular idea.  (Nancy...Manhattan... *sigh*)

    I am blown away by the zest for life that Deb had! As more and more stories and "remember when"s come out-  I am speechless. Especially like the godmother to left ovary and kniting reproductive organs!

    John, what an extraordinary woman, I am sorry I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person.

    I loved the news story that I watched through the internet -- about the pink flowers, etc... I don't know what crazy thing I could do, but I'm working on doing something to remembe Deb's spirit.

    God bless you and your family, John.

    I have a long pink wig,  can make pig tails, and tie on ribbons.   Wear it to bingo Friday night maybe.   Is that crazy enough???

    Gosh, I've had a heck of a time finding the 'commemorating' section!  Apparently I had this section 'minimized' from the main index page, and it was getting bypassed when I used the search feature also. 

    Anyway, Bren, be sure to put on your nightgown and grab a gun when you look for that bear!
