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.)

Where is Rhyme? Anyone?...why isn't she here? I'm just verklempt by all of this, as I'm sure many others are...also very antsy...onc visit and new (6th) chemo tomorrow...

Yes, kumbaya would be comforting. So would whiskey, but xanax will have to do for tonight. Oh, btw, Sheryl Crow is on Larry King at 10 for anyone that cares to watch...while you're on watch, of course...keep one eye on the campsite.

I read these posts and feel like I'm actually camping out with you guys...feels very safe and loving...wish I could have you all here in my living room. One big sleepover...all of us together...funny how a computer can make such a difference, and I tell you it does.

I am crying, but what's new lately...

I hate guns, but in this venue, I kinda like the idea of Alaskadeb all pissed off with her extra bullets hahahaha...thanks for that visual.

I'm bunkering down for the night and just checked in for some good lovin' from you all. Is that sick or what? I miss Rhyme, though...gonna call her now...

Take care, everyone...Peggy, your pics are awesome...bring me Bon Jovi in a cowboy get-up!

I love you all. You are so special and what a difference you make in my life. You all should know that!...Mena...xo

I'll take a bailey's and coffee over here. I set down the shotgun and said a few prayers. I pray for peace to settle over all the weary and healing for the sick. I pray for comfort for all of us.

The sun just broke through a huge bank of the blackest clouds you can imagine...like a golden floodlight. I think tomorrow will be a sunny day.

I'll take Bruce Springsteen!

Mena- GOOD LUCK TOMORROW GIRL!!!
DENISE! So glad you found a doc you like!!!
Rhymee? Where are you?! We know you need us! Come to the circle- Deb will hold her fire. Don't know if she can hold her moonshine but she can hold her fire!

Pay no attention to the strange noises you hear in the outhouse- it's just Dave- AGAIN.

I am ready to take my watch but want to grab some peach cobbler before Marla gives it all to Sam.

Sleep well, Susan.You deserve it.

Here's the owl to join night shift.I'll bein & out, because I'm still working around.
But I WILL b armed and riding myfaithful horse Lightning Foot aroun d the perimeter, guarding against the beast that creeps by darkness.

Wanna hear about Lightning Foot?
He is jet black, and has a white zigzag on right foreleg.
He is 60 years old and counting.Because he was my childhood fantasy horse when I was tiny.(Too small to know what kind of a horse he was!)We usd toride around with Hopalong,and Gene Autry a lot.In my dreams.
I could have a horse much more easily than I could have a gun.But to guard these women against this beast, I am armed to the teeth.Hey, I'd throw grenades, or firebombs, whateever is needed.HAAAATE the beast.
Hi Mena, Love.I'm glad you feel cared-for.We WILL be around until this fu**er backs off.You girls are doing your part,we'll do ours.
Gonna tak a few spins around the perimeter.Lightning Foot is more than fast, he is quiet.I have to make sure nothing is sneaking through the thickets.
WHY won't Rhymeee come here?

Checkin' in, checkin' out the campfire and all of those around it. Keeping out a watchful eye for all of our sisters in need. If you hear any thing in them woods, check before shooting. The only thing we are out to get is the beast. With all the bc sisters and gorgeous men in attendance tonight. we must be careful.

Love when you can, Cry when you have to, be who you must, that's the part of the plan.- Dan Fogelberg

Thought I would relieve some of you gals. NS, Joan, Deb, see you made it here ahead of me, sorry I am late. Thanks for leaving some of that delicious chocolate for us late gals - I see the guys though are not in sight. Wonder which one will be frying the ham and eggs in the morning? Ready for a warm biscuit too.

The rain has slowed as was pretty heavy last night but is now just a sprinkling off and on. I figure heaven just had to release those tears that went with our prayers. I see a few stars now trying to give some light to the darkness. I look around and see all these wagons in the glow from the fire - they are from Alaska, NY, Cal.,Mo,PA,NC,GA, DC, Ohio, Wis.,more than I can count. All the wagons are different otherwise too, some are young; some older, all have traveled a long hard road; some seem a little more worn from a longer trip but all form a circle of love and friendship that only being "sisters" from BC can bring. There is warmth by the fire; many still aren't resting well and join the circle from time to time and then leave again. As the reflection of the fire plays across their faces I see eyes that know pain; set jaws that show strength; and arms wrapped around legs as if to give hugs to those in their thoughts. They make me proud to be here.

The fire burns, the circle keeps growing, we are here sisters; we are here.

Hi Brenda,
We had some tears from the heavens too, just a few minutes ago.And here it is strangely active for 3AM.It is not as quiet as usual at this hour.But the crickets and cicadas are louder!
I'm wishing we hear from Robin tomorrow.I hope her new chemo is not too hard.I remember my first few nights and days after chemo I always felt pretty peppy and good, from all the drugs they gave me WITH the chemo.Taxotere I felt the BEST after chemo, from all the decadron.I did windows, got all my housework&laundry done.
I'm hoping to see Robin tomorrow-maybe at eggs and bacon time!
Meanwhile, Lord, I'm lifting her up for you to watch over.
