Sent by a friend...

My dear friend, Nettie sent this as a holiday greeting. She's a retired detective and a hoot! LOL!!!
To all my Democrat friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than anyother country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability,religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.
To all my Republican friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Still no photo...but imagine Ireland!

T-Bone and I took our walk today. Walked nearly 1 1/2 miles after only 4 days without the cast. And then it happened...I think I found Ireland. I couldn't get close enough to see the tiny white spot above his upper lip, but I know it's him. I do. I've searched for him for almost 2 years and there he a very beautiful home. Yes, of course I'm smiling. Smart kitty!!! My very, very smart kitty. Life's good. XO

This photo came with the computer!!! Nope...not mine!!! Haven't figured out how to get mine yet!
Okay, this is a funny story. I was going to reserve it for the M&M, but why bother!!! When my computer caught that nasty virus the only thing I cared about was saving my photos. I hadn't backed up what I thought was around 300. Turned out to be over 1,000! The computer expert felt he could retrieve them and did. And then he did something extra special. When the tower was leaving the house I said to Rob, "Honey, there are some very private photos you think he'll see them?" Rob just smiled and shook his head and said "Baby, if he does it's your own f****** fault, but no, he's going to run a program to retrieve everything, so he won't be looking at individual photos." Got the computer back yesterday and was searching for my photos last night. Guess what? They're all under a file he maked "My Photos" with 4 of my naked pics on the file cover. Bastard. I'm laughing, but want to cry!!! Men. Wow...he had to wade through alot of kitties and flowers to get to them! Yes...this is my life! What do you think he's doing with the copies he obviously made?!!! Oh. My. God. Rob hasn't even seen them!!! HA! No, nothing changes at Rose Cottage Studio!
It's almost Christmas and I'm still showcasing Thanksgiving. I HATE FACEBOOK!!! Okay, not really, but boy did it give me a bad virus. That's why we don't have a photo today folks!! The computer expert was able to save a gazillion photos I failed to backup, but he put them in a file I have absolutely no idea how to access for Blogger and Facebook. Hey...but I'm here!!!
Good news. T-Bone and I started walking again yesterday. We walked again today. Both days in the pouring rain. Wonderful! Today I also drove the car and went to the park without a cast since I broke my ankle August 14th. I'm turning the page. Yes, it hurts, but I'm determined to get this behind me. I really am because I've had enough.
I'll figure out the photo thing shortly and God do I have some great stories for you. I'll do my best over the next few weeks to share them with you. And to all my dear friends, thanks for sticking with me despite my complete lack of respect for my blog!!!! I'll respond to your comments below. Thanks!
Much love, Me XO
Love you all
