This has been a rough few days...
It is time for us to hook up our horses and circle our wagons around some of our dear sisters who need us the most right now.

Robin, Rhymee, Mena, Denise, Marsha, Katz & Sarah, Gwenn, Pennylane, Dianne, Shelliks and all who need some love and care from the sisterhood.

I will take the first watch.

(edited to add that since we started the circle, we have lost many angels mentioned above and others who were inside the circle.  Nicki/Chemosabi kept watch over the circle many nights for us. Now, she will watch over the campfire with the angels she joined tonight. Rest in Peace you beautiful friends, we love you all and will never forget you.)

Been out of the picture for awhile - taking a break from the cancer nightmare as best I can. I don't know what all is going on with you gals, but I love you all and many of you have been an inspiration to me thru my bc journey.

I'm here, brought my wagon and my teacup poodle for protection from the beast - she's not feroceous, but maybe the beast will get distracted by her "cuteness" and someone can sucker punch it...with a shotgun!!!

Prayers going up for all my bc sisters! I pray for you all daily!

Pass the coffee - it may be mid-day, but this cowgirl isn't resting well these days!

I cooked up a big pot of homemade veggi soup with veggies from my garden...healthy, warm and filling. The wheat bread is almost ready to come out of the oven and I made Super Fantastic Carmelastic Brownies...you have to feed the soul to my sisters.

While we sit by the fire and wait for the singing to start, how about a poem...

Uninvited Guest

You are there at my awakening,
Every morning as I arise to meet a new day.

Every smile I make or tear I shed
Is shadowed by your presence,
And though no one can tell you're there,
You are ever so present to me.

Your grip is tight
So I feel you constantly.

You will not leave
So I must live with you,
And pray that you will be
More gentle with me
Than you have been with others.

I do not want you
But appreciate you,
For you have taught me to love
That which I have not loved before.

Life.

Oh, no! I was going to tell you all that Dave and I had an arrangement tonight. Then I came across this:

Quote:
Just weeks after splitting from Carmen Electra, Dave Navarro is taking up with a fellow not-quite-singleton, adult film star Jenna Jameson, PEOPLE reports in its new issue.

....Navarro and Jameson co-hosted this year's Erotica L.A. event in June at the Los Angeles Convention Center.






Ah, Dave, I barely knew ye'!

Ladies is it okay if I give you a update on Denise
here? since she is in your circle I thought it would be okay

Denise went for a second opinion today
and her doctor sent her to a new surgeon who Denise feels much more comfortable about, We tryed to google the first
Surgeon and found very little on him and we had never heard of him so she found another, and low and behold that is the one her Doctor (GP) Suggested and he wanted to see her today .
SO SHE HAS HAD HER FIRST CONSULT WITH HIM TODAY.

He wants to do a 3-D image to see the relationship of the
skull to the anuerysm . His office will call tommorow with the date of test. She feels much better with this Surgeon he took time with her. explained alot to her.
