[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:13:48 PM EDT] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:13:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:13:52 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:13:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:14:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I got back to my keyboard just in time. (Was folding the last load of laundry.)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:14:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How goes the selling and downsizing, KK?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:14:44 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Oh the joys of laundry which never end
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:15:07 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And dishes. :insert eye-rolling emoji here: :)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:15:20 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So true
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:16:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My hands themselves hate doing dishes. I did a bunch yesterday (had to wash a food thing for Carys plus her water fountain, and then did my dishes while I had a sink of hot soapy water).
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:16:28 PM EDT] <KK> Preparing for selling and downsizing is going ok. My sister was here for 2 weeks; left Wednesday. She gave me a lot of help, but there's still so much to do. One step at a time, one day at a time.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:16:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I was working on a hand-sewing project I brought with me to my parents' house while I was doing laundry, and my hands are so rough (even though I wore gloves while I washed the dishes) that the thread kept snagging on my skin.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:16:50 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Yes
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:17:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How are *you* doing, KK? I imagine keeping busy helps in a way, but maybe not so much in others.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:18:05 PM EDT] <KK> I'm hanging in there. I'm mostly on the edge of overwhelmed with all that needs to be done, so that's good, in a way.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:18:20 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That sounds uncomfortable. If you have a pair of cotton gloves, try slathering your hands with lotion then putting the gloves on and wearing them all night.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:18:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sometimes "hanging in there" is as good as it gets.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:19:12 PM EDT] <bynw> that's very true
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:19:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I do put lotion on my hands every night before I go to bed, either the Equate knock-off of Aveeno's Eczema Therapy formula or, when my hands are really bad, the prescription cream from my dermatologist.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:19:27 PM EDT] <KK> I miss Scott, of course, but I'm periodically flabbergasted by the amount of "stuff" he had squirreled away. An avid collector of so many things that I'm mostly having to find homes for.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:19:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But I don't have cotton gloves.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:21:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, that was my grandmother (avid collector of stuff). Some of it was really interesting stuff; I found her journals and read the entry from the day I was born (she wasn't present, because of the expense involved in traveling from South Carolina to Arizona), but I was her first grandchild, and what she wrote was lovely.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:21:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But some of it was just stuff.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:21:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee>
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:21:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> <3, Bee!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:22:30 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Try Amazon, just looked and they have all kinds, even dermatologist recommended
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:22:53 PM EDT] <KK> Can't even think about where I might go next, though I did look at a small house in the area I think I want, to see how big it actually is and what I shouild be able to expect for the price I'll be willing to pay. The one yesterday is probably a no-go, as it's full of ugly paneling and repainting jobs and too many front steps to carry groceries up. Plus, there are steep stairs going down into the basement, though that's huge, if mostly unfi
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:23:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'll do that. I might actually be able to get a friend of mine to crochet some for me, because my pinkies are unusually short given the size of my palms and my other fingers.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:23:41 PM EDT] Join WidowSon (~Mibbit@OWIRCN-6752496a.fl.comcast.net) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:23:50 PM EDT] <bynw> welcome to the chat WidowSon
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:23:52 PM EDT] <The_Bee> HI WidowSon
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:23:55 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hi widowSons
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It doesn't hurt to explore the market, KK; house-hunting can be a pain, but I imagine it's easier if you have done your homework.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:12 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Hi everyone. How are all ya'll doing?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi WidowSon
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:16 PM EDT] <KK> Hi, widowson. It's been a while.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:16 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, yeah steep stairs arent good
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Wonder how Jerusha is doing with her move
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:24:46 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Hi KK. How ya holding in there? Been thinking bout you and your family.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:25:51 PM EDT] <KK> Hanging there. Cameron is coming next weekend, to stay for a few weeks and help some more. And my sister and I made serious inroads on clearning the cottage, though there's still <lots> to do.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:12 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Downsizing and moving is a HUGE task. I had a friend who took a year to complete the whole thing
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Can Cameron use any stuff you're gettingrid of?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:46 PM EDT] <KK> I wish I had that long. But life goes on, and I want to be moved before next winter.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:46 PM EDT] <WidowSon> You are moving I take it. downsizing to something more manageable?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:50 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So glad Cameron is able tocome
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:26:51 PM EDT] <KK> Absolutely.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:27:21 PM EDT] <KK> WidowSon, you <do> know about Scott?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:27:37 PM EDT] <WidowSon> you must have a HUGE library. Books are a pain to move but WE LOVE THEM!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:28:10 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yes KK. Remember my mom passed just before Scott of NASH as well.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:28:58 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I know its been tough on you.....and your mom.....how's she?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:29:14 PM EDT] <KK> That's a big issue. I'll be selling most of the library. Most of it relates to project long ago finished. And then there are Scott's books, on heraldry, chivalry, vintage cars, firearms, edged weapons, and much odd ball stuff.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:30:21 PM EDT] <bynw> you should let us all know what's for sale. i'm sure members of the community here may be interested in some of them
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:30:52 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Gosh I wish I could buy anything you have on Wales Britain Scotland especially pre-medieval.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:31:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Are you in touch with the SCA group in your area? Even if you don't want to play, I have to think that they might be interested in at least some of the books (I'm thinking particularly heraldry, chivalry, and edged weapons).
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:31:35 PM EDT] <WidowSon> and of course the CODEX! I don't have one yet! LOL!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:31:42 PM EDT] <KK> But that would involve taking time to make lists. Probably better if folks ask in specific areas. I have general knowledge at hand, from going through the books upstairs in the media room. And then, there are the books in the library, and in Scott'sd office, and my office....
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:32:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Any you want to keep?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:32:33 PM EDT] <WidowSon> anything on Celtic peoples and Druids....especially in Iron Age.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:32:43 PM EDT] <Evie> Sorry to be mostly afk. Between my dad having a conversation with me while my mom is trying to get me to teach her how to text, I can't even keep up with what y'all are saying here. LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:33:11 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi, KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:33:21 PM EDT] <bynw> WidowSon, looks like amazon has a few codexes still available. get them before they are gone: https://www.amazon.com/Codex-Derynianus-Katherine-Kurtz/dp/1887424962/ref=sr_1_1?crid=24OLRQT0IROCW&keywords=codex+derynianus&qid=1558913560&s=gateway&sprefix=codex+der%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-1
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:33:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> That's okay; you can read the post.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:33:37 PM EDT] <Evie> yeah
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:33:40 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks bynw
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:35:34 PM EDT] <WidowSon> So, KK I entered the first two chapters and a synopsis of my book for a grant competition for authors. The Speculative Writers Foundation. It's not much money but we'll see what happens.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:35:59 PM EDT] <KK> Good ideas, all. If folk could send me an e-mail re what they're interested in, I'll respond as best I can.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:08 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I hope you do well, WS.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:20 PM EDT] <KK> Good going, WidowSon!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Thanks, KK.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:32 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks Bee. They announce winners June 1st!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:47 PM EDT] <KK> Whoa, that's next Saaturday!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:52 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YOU INSPIRED ME KK!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:36:58 PM EDT] <The_Bee> no, Sunday
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:37:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That sounds exciting WidowSon, Good luck!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:37:23 PM EDT] <The_Bee> BRB. Cat wants dinner.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:37:49 PM EDT] <KK> Saturday. It's Cameron's projected arrival date.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:38:04 PM EDT] <Evie> 30 seconds of silence and counting. Quick, let me catch up! :-D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:38:08 PM EDT] <KK> Glad to have been of help, WS.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:38:24 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks ya'll. It takes place in Iron Age Wales on Aglesey, and in Britain Ireland and Scotland. Its based around the main character who is going to enter druid school on the sacred isle!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:38:46 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Talking ravens and the Tuatha De Danaan are central
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:38:51 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That sounds really cool!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:39:28 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Very intriguing
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:39:45 PM EDT] <WidowSon> So much RESEARCH though to get all the historical stuff right about the Celtic culture and druidic teachings and religion.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:40:10 PM EDT] <KK> I trust it will be quieter than Hogwarts. (I was watching a Harry Potter flick last night.)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:40:57 PM EDT] <Evie> Which one?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:41:16 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yup KK but lots of students practicing their ritual song studies.....all memorized and taught mouth to ear.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:41:19 PM EDT] <KK> Chamber of Secrets.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:41:45 PM EDT] <Evie> That's the only one I don't have. I used to, but my DVD has gone missing.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:41:49 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yes Harry Potter's adventures ROCK!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:06 PM EDT] <KK> Ya gotta have some hands-on training. ;-)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:19 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YES!!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm pretty sure June 1 is Saturday.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:40 PM EDT] <WidowSon> The ravens do magic as well.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:44 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It is. It's my anniversary
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:55 PM EDT] <WidowSon> HAPPY Anniversary!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:42:57 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm pretty sure June 1 is Saturday.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:43:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Speaking of next weekend, just because it came up relatively organically, KK, are we doing early chat next Sunday?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:43:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (P.S. Next Sunday is also revanne's and Demercia's birthday.) :D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:43:38 PM EDT] <KK> I'll try. Cameron will have arrived the day before, all going as projected.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:43:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, good deal.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:44:11 PM EDT] <Evie> If revanne and Demercia will be in chat, we'll need birthday cake
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:44:20 PM EDT] <KK> I can preobably do early chat and then still have time to get a bite of supper with my kid.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:44:50 PM EDT] <KK> Stuttering fingers tonight.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:44:54 PM EDT] <bynw> the kiddo is more important that us so we understand if plans change
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:44:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> revanne usually makes it to early chat; Demercia's a bit more hit-or-miss but I think that's a function of her being busy/tired than anything else.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:45:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, indeed (re: kiddo being important).
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:45:37 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yup your son is definitely priority!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:02 PM EDT] <KK> On the other hand, he may just want to collapse in his bed, after driving over from Oklahoma.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:12 PM EDT] <Evie> Wow, yeah
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yikes! He's DRIVING?!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That's a LONG drive, even by US standards. :)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Long drive, and they haven't had the best weather there lately!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:47:55 PM EDT] <bynw> that is going to be a long drive, he might just go to bed for a while
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:48:00 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Tornados and rain.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:48:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, indeed. A friend of mine from high school lives in Oklahoma now (although during this most recent bad weather, she and her husband have been in Colorado on vacation). But yeah, YIKES to that weather and YIKES to that drive!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:03 PM EDT] <bynw> i remember driving from des moines to atlanta a few times after moving back to DSM ... just get a hotel and sleep for a while
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:08 PM EDT] <Evie> OK is sort of like America's washing machine. Wash, spin, rinse, dry. Repeat.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:11 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Then iron it flat, apparently. :P
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:25 PM EDT] <KK> Yep. Needs his Jeep. And I think he's planning to rent a trailer again, to take some more of his stuff out of his storage unit--and out of the house, of course. One of his missions for this trim, should he decide to accept it, is to clear all the car-related stuff from the 3 garages and deal with the 2 cars that were Scott's.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:49:32 PM EDT] <KK> this time
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:50:40 PM EDT] <Derynifank> 3 garages of stuff! wow!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:51:10 PM EDT] <KK> Yes, Evie, they're just south of OK City, in Norman, and a big twister hit yesterday or the day before, like 20 miles west of there.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:51:28 PM EDT] <Evie> wow
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:51:46 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Its tough I know KK. I still have to go to my Mom's and get stuff. My sister Toni that has Downs was living with Mom. My younger sister Julie and her family decided to sell their home and move in my parent old home to take care of Toni and so she can stay in a familiar surrounding.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:52:09 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Good for them.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:52:31 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Tornados are so dangerous.....ya get NO warning!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:52:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Yeah, I have a couple of friends in that area. One posted a picture online of his neighbor's car that got flattened by a tree. The neighbor had bought the car just the day before!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:52:46 PM EDT] <The_Bee> OUCH!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:52:46 PM EDT] <KK> That <is> tough, WS. But at least if they're staying there, it takes some of the pressure off, of having to clear stuff out Right Now.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That's a real downer
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:00 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yeah that's so true KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, you just know that neighbor was running through every swear word in existence and probably inventing new ones.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:36 PM EDT] <KK> Jusst hope his insurance on the new car was squared away.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Right?!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:43 PM EDT] <Evie> Inventing language that would make a submariner blush?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:53:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Probably. :P
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:54:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I just got a new-to-me
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:54:26 PM EDT] <WidowSon> So Ya;ll here's one of the ritual poems from my book.....its the ritual that the druids use to wake up animals and trees etc. to learn to speak. tell me what ya'll think.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:54:41 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Across the sky rides Sun and Moon with stars a bright behind, Earth Motherís words drift down like snow with power yet to bind. Hearken yon and hear her words and waken forth from death, Let not her voice fall on the stones and find no tongue or breath. Spring forth from earth's tight binding heart and find the voice you seek, For destiny you must play your p
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:55:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (though definitely not NEW) car, and I'd be BEYOND angry if it were to be flattened by weather or squished by another car or something.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:55:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Note: If you hear a freight train approaching, and you don't live near railroad tracks, take cover.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:55:19 PM EDT] <KK> Nice, WS.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:55:23 PM EDT] <WidowSon> ...part and finally learn to speak.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:56:03 PM EDT] <Evie> Even if you do live near the tracks, but that freight train sounds like it's rumbling over your house, take cover!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:56:06 PM EDT] <KK> brb
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:56:11 PM EDT] <Evie> Says the voice of experience here
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:56:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or if your mobile phone goes off with a tornado warning alert.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:56:44 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I really like your ritual poem. Very mystical
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:57:04 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes. Preferably several minutes before hearing that rumbling sound, if you hear one at all
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:57:05 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks DF
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:57:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. Tornadoes are no joke.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:57:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> BRB myself
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:59:21 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I've been through hurricanes and tornadoes are generally scarier unless the hurricane is a Cat 4 or % which are pretty rare
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [7:59:33 PM EDT] <Derynifank> 5
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:00:32 PM EDT] <KK> Back. Booker was bo-wo'ing out front, and I realized I hadn't turned on any lights at the front of the house yet. (Nobldy out there. He was raising the alarm about other dogs waling with their people on the <other> side of the street. How dare they?!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:00:45 PM EDT] <Derynifank> these weather events seem to be getting worse
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:00:46 PM EDT] <KK> walking
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:01:14 PM EDT] <The_Bee> climate change is real.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:01:25 PM EDT] <KK> I was born during a hurricane, and have experienced several. But a tornado would be really scary.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:01:39 PM EDT] <Derynifank> How come Congress can't figure that out?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:02:02 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Climate change I mean
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:02:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't know, but let's leave politics out of chat.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:02:41 PM EDT] <Evie> I wondered how Congress could be expected to know the weather circumstances surrounding KK's birth. ;-)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:00 PM EDT] <Derynifank> there is that.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:03 PM EDT] <The_Bee> LOL!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:15 PM EDT] <KK> It's in most of my published bio blurbs. ;-)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:21 PM EDT] <bynw> LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:32 PM EDT] <Derynifank> which hirricane?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:03:34 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Climate change is VERY REAL Ya'll. That's the science we do here the Reserve where I work. Its REAL and Sea Level Rise even more real NOW!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:04:05 PM EDT] <KK> They didn't yet name hurricanes when I was born.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:04:11 PM EDT] <WidowSon> That's so cool KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:04:42 PM EDT] <Derynifank> The flooding in the midwest is really scary. And where I live a lot of the coast is already below sea level
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:04:59 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My first hurricane was named Carol.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:05:16 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK.....after things settle down ya'll should get away to Florida for some rest for a week.....come to Naples!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:05:33 PM EDT] <WidowSon> you and Cameron that is.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:05:53 PM EDT] <The_Bee> And Cameron's wife?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:05:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I pestered (and won the argument) to go swimming during the eye of Hurricane (or maybe it was a strong tropical storm, because it DID have an eye) David in 1979.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:06:21 PM EDT] <KK> Wife needs to stay home and work.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:06:35 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Wow. And how was that? Where were you swimming?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:07:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't remember much, but there's a picture of me doing it. I was about three, and I was swimming in the pool of a hotel.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:07:27 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How daring of you!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:07:42 PM EDT] <WidowSon> VERY daring! LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:07:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have to imagine, having experienced the eye of Hurricane Hugo, that it was somewhat less eerily quiet (since David was nowhere near Hugo's wind speed or size), but probably still quieter outside than it would normally be.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:12 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I remeber David. I was going to work and ended up swimming, in my car!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oops!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:29 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YIKES!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Automotive swimming is not fun!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:45 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Ummmmmm.....NO its NOT!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:08:59 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Whe they say turn araound, don't drwon they are not kidding
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:09:08 PM EDT] <Evie> ack!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:09:42 PM EDT] <Derynifank> The water got up inside the car but not deep and forunatelly the car didn't float anywhere.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A friend and I were in my car on our way to campus (we were uni students at the time) and I saw a big ol' Tahoe or something like that start into a puddle across Meeting Street (in Charleston) and then change their mind, back up, and turn around, I decided that our morning classes could just do without us that day, because if the other driver wasn't chancing it in an SUV, I was DEFINITELY not going to try it in my itty-
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:00 PM EDT] <DesertRose> bitty Nissan.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:00 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK.....how's your mom doing? Ok I hope.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:08 PM EDT] <Derynifank> However, had to replace the car
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:16 PM EDT] * bynw is working tomorrow but that means i get paid for the holiday 8 hours and then get paid again for working it as overtime
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:10:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, that can wreak some serious havoc on a car.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:11:09 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Double-time BYNW! You GO!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:11:21 PM EDT] <bynw> and a half
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:11:52 PM EDT] <KK> She's slowly settling into her new home in assisted living, though she had pneumonia again, right after she moved in at the end of January. But my sister and I had a nice Mother's Day with her. Serious short term memory issues, though.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:11:53 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Double time and a half! Good for you!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:12:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Wound up that downtown campus closed for the day that day, because a lot of students and professors and other staff couldn't get to the campus.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:12:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Poor LBM. :(
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:12:27 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I'll pray for quick healing for her KK.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:12:58 PM EDT] <KK> Yeah. She still periodically expresses a desire to find another place to live, but it ain't a gonna happen.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:13:20 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I understand.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:13:36 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hope she will be happy where she is as she gets used to it
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:13:43 PM EDT] <The_Bee> She has two loving daughters, and it soundslike she'd had a good life.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:14:10 PM EDT] <KK> Oh, pneumonia was caught early, so she was only 3 days in hospital, but she's increasingly frail. One day at a time. She doesn't want to wearr her oxygen fulltime, but it does help her chronic cough.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:14:37 PM EDT] <The_Bee> COPD?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:14:43 PM EDT] <WidowSon> One Day at a Time......yup.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:15:02 PM EDT] <KK> Interstitial lung disease.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:15:03 PM EDT] <bynw> one day at a time is good advice to everyone no matter our circumstances
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:15:49 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I picked up my phone yesterday to call my mom to ask how she oven baked okra.....then remembered I couldn't. One day at a time for sure.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:16:19 PM EDT] <Derynifank> So true. When you think about overwhelming problems, consider; how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:16:42 PM EDT] <WidowSon> So true DF.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:16:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My mom was seven when her mother died.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:17:28 PM EDT] <WidowSon> UGH....Bee. that would have hurt big time at that age.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:17:36 PM EDT] <Derynifank> WS. I hope you will let us know when your book is published. Sounds like something I would really like to read
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:06 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I have flight of ideas sometimes
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:11 PM EDT] <The_Bee> It wAS IN THE INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC AROUND wORLD wAR i.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> DF......I'll ONLY publish if KK will write the forward for me!!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:26 PM EDT] <The_Bee> oOOPS, DIDN'T MEAN TO SHOUT.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:30 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I bet she will
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:18:31 PM EDT] <bynw> i used to have vonage as a home phone service, and you could download voicemails as WAV files, i have 2 recordings of those that i will never delete
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:14 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I have to finish the darn thing first......slow going with full time job too though.....but I'm determined!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:26 PM EDT] <KK> I could do that, WS. :-)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Is it all poetry?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:37 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YAYYYYYY!!!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:37 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It's great that you can save voice recordings that are obviously important to you
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:19:42 PM EDT] <bynw> one is of my mom calling from the hospital while going through radiation treatments
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:20:00 PM EDT] <WidowSon> No Bee.......just the ritual songs that they use for magic.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:20:20 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Nonfiction or fiction?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:20:41 PM EDT] <Derynifank> It sounds like a fascinating story
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:21:02 PM EDT] <bynw> the other is from susan a couple of weeks before she suddenly passed. everytime i need to hear their voices again i just play the old voicemail message. smile and sometimes cry.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:21:08 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Fictional Fantasy but takes place in historic real places during Celtic Iron Age times.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:21:31 PM EDT] <The_Bee> historical fantasy
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:21:55 PM EDT] <WidowSon> yes historical fantasy LIKE KK!!! :)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:21:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Right in KK's wheelhouse, genre-wise, if in a different time period. :)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:22:11 PM EDT] <bynw> Two Crowns for America is awesome historical fantasy :) one of my favorites
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:22:17 PM EDT] <WidowSon> ....like I said SHE INSPIRED ME!!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:03 PM EDT] <WidowSon> .......here I am 53 and finally aspiring to be an author....we shall see if it's good enough. I HOPE SO!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:25 PM EDT] <Evie> If I can ever find the time and mental energy for it, I need to finsh revising my novel manuscript
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If you're alive and you want to do the thing, it's not too late. :)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:37 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YES Two Crowns for America is AWESOME!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:40 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Let us know next week how it went.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:49 PM EDT] <Derynifank> We're rooting for you. It's never too late to do something you really want to do
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:23:58 PM EDT] <WidowSon> DO IT Evie!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:24:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Soulcatcher, Evie or a different project?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:24:25 PM EDT] <Evie> Lately I haven't had enough of either to even write a brief paragraph, much less rewrite a whole novel!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:24:36 PM EDT] <Evie> Tales of a Soulcatcher, yes
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:24:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> sounds intriguing
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:24:57 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Catchy title! I like it!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:25:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Drat jobs and all that, taking time away from the important stuff like writing! :D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:25:27 PM EDT] <KK> Yes!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:25:34 PM EDT] <WidowSon> We are all KK's literary children!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:25:46 PM EDT] <KK> I think you are!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:25:47 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Hope you will find time andd energy at some point. I love your writing
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:26:17 PM EDT] <WidowSon> We LOVE you too KK!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:26:28 PM EDT] <Evie> Protagonist is a priestess who, in her culture, is also an ancient-world equivalent of a forensics expert, bringng closure to the dead and their famlies when people have died under mysterious or violent circumstances.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:26:31 PM EDT] <KK> Realistically, I hope to be back at it by the end of the year. But this <is> my annus horribilis. I'm not holding my breath.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:26:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Write it! I wanna know who or what a soulcatcher is.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:27:02 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YES KK!!! DO IT!!!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:27:10 PM EDT] <Evie> So it's like a series of detective/spiritual stories set in a fantasy world based very loosely on ancient Mediterranean cultures with some Berber tossed in.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:27:38 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Sounds fascinating
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:27:53 PM EDT] <WidowSon> WOW! Evie you better get your arse in gear and git'er done!! LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:07 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Tell me the same thing please! LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:30 PM EDT] <Evie> Yup. I'll kick yours if you kick mine. :-D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:36 PM EDT] <The_Bee> DO IT< WS!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I guess round tuits don't cut it any more; we all need virtual kicks to the posterior to get us in gear. :D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:28:53 PM EDT] <Derynifank> You too, WS. I want to hear about your druid student
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:29:15 PM EDT] <Evie> I just need twice as much sleep, a smaller work load, more free time, and a 36 hour day
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:29:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I need something to contain scope creep, LOL.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:29:48 PM EDT] <KK> That would work for me, too, Evie.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:29:49 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK.......I still think that the Deryni and the ADEPT stories would make some grand Netflix series!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:29:52 PM EDT] <Evie> and more mental energy, because even when I have the free time, all I can muster up the energy to do is something mindless
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:30:08 PM EDT] <Derynifank> That's not asking too much Evie
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:30:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I haven't written much of anything except personal stuff and poetry lately, but my sewing and embroidery projects keep multiplying on me. ;)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:30:23 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I agree ya'll.....I need like THREE of me to do it all! LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:30:49 PM EDT] <The_Bee> As long as you're finding something creative to do
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:31:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's a whole movie about why that's a bad idea (Multiplicity, I think was the title--Michael Keaton played a guy who cloned himself; silly comedy movie, not a serious film).
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:31:30 PM EDT] <Evie> Lately I've managed to read a mind candy book series I like, but I can only manage to read about one very short chapter a day, while on the bus from my remote parking to work and back.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:31:53 PM EDT] <WidowSon> DR his name is Aelfric. He is the son of a blacksmith and his mother is the Druidess for his village.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:31:55 PM EDT] <Evie> Or I should say, two chapters a day, since I can usually get most of all of a chapter read during each bus ride
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:31:56 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I've devoted much energy the past few days to sorting out my vast comic-book collection.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:32:14 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Is work getting any better since they hired some new people?
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:32:43 PM EDT] <KK> OK, folks. I need to sign off now. Just looked at the clock, after my tummy said it's hungry, and it's time to go feed myself. Hopefully, I'll be here next week at 5.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:32:57 PM EDT] * bynw is just working on revamping my game rules to something i really want to use
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:32:58 PM EDT] <WidowSon> WE NEED AN AUTHORS group just like Tolkien and the Inklings and we retreat with KK to LEARN THE ROPES!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:05 PM EDT] <Evie> In some ways, yes, but that just means I'm freed from front desk for longer periods so I can do other admin stuff that I can't do at the front desk. So I'm still busy, just in a different way
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, KK, thanks for coming to chat with us. Have a good night and a good week, and hopefully we'll see you next week at 5!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:11 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Have a good week. See you next week
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:15 PM EDT] <bynw> ok KK, thanks for dropping by you are always in our prayers
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:25 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Nighters, KK. Thanks for coming and have a worthwhile week.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:32 PM EDT] <Evie> and since we also hired new counseling staff, that makes for more work for front desk/admin
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm not sure KK has the mental or physical energy to run a retreat, although it'd be fun if she did! :D
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:46 PM EDT] <Evie> But it does help they hired another front desk person
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:49 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Nite Nite KK. Take care and much love to you and your family!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:33:53 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goonight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:06 PM EDT] <Evie> Goodnight, KK
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:16 PM EDT] <KK> Nighters! (No goons involved.) ;-)
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:27 PM EDT] <WidowSon> LOL!
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:27 PM EDT] <Evie> And my mom has been trying to feed me for the past half hour, so I'd probably better log off too
[Sunday, May 26, 2019] [8:34:27 PM EDT] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF)).
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
