From: Date: Mon, May 1, 2000, 12:32pm To:, Subject: hi Well this week has been a bit solum (spelling??) I had to put Leo to sleep Friday. He was getting so out of hand with spraying, attacking the other cats and now he took to peeing on everything. I was in my bed and he jumped up and peed and I was under the sheet! He started getting up at around 3 a.m. and hunting down the other cats who were sleeping and would attack them. The vet said he wanted to be the only cat in the household. She said when I went to work, he would have full power to hurt them. It's true I was always behind him. The vet said I could let him outside, however it would make me suffer thinking what is happening to him, is that dog bark a dog cornering Leo, is Leo hurt somewhere, and then I probably would either bring him back inside and be in constant fear that he may really hurt someone. The peeing on everything wasn't very good either and she (the vet) said it would get even worse. I tried to domesticate him and I thought I won but as he got older, he got more meaner to the others.. not to me, he was a sweetheart. He demanded to be on my lap always and when another just looked at who was on my lap, he would stare at them till they ran to hide. It is such a shock to see how relaxed they are. The first night, they still hid all throughout the house, but the second night, Sammy, who is always hiding.. came out from under the bed and not just to eat and run hide again. He rubbed all over my legs, let me lean over and pet him, he fell on the floor head first haha and rolled over and gave me his stomach and I rubbed and rubbed it. My other cats came around and jumped up on the recliner to greet me and then jumped off, they started playing in the living again and they haven't done that in a long long time. I didn't realize how stiffled Leo had made them. I still have my cold..I'm getting Tylnol Sinus tabs today to see if that works. It's all in my throat.   May 8th I start working again.. thank the Lord. Hope all is well with you and you are resting up. Attached is a picture of Leo so you don't get them mixed up. I'm sorry I had to do it, I wasn't going to throw him outside to get into harm and I wasn't going to give him a life of being in a cage. Hope Heather is okay too. Love Norma.

From: (rjones) Date: Tue, May 2, 2000, 8:00pm (EDT-3) To: Subject: Rica is looking for you Hi Don,   Cloud here from the Garden.  I just got an email from Rica this morning.  She is working long hours and spending her free time with her Dad.  He is scheduled for by-pass surgery on May 16th and she asked that we include him our prayers.  She has been lurking thru the Garden and is concerned that she hasn't seen any posts from you--she is concerned for your well being.   Would you mind dropping her a quick email? She has been reading, but not responding to her emails; altho for you, I'm sure she will respond.  Here is her email at work: She seems to use this account now.   Thanks for your help.  We sure miss you in the PCP Chuckle Corner.  I hope to read you in the Garden soon.   Sincerely, Cloud

I have been under the weather for a while and went to the doctors last week and found out it was bronchitis. I am on antibiotics and slowly getting better. Our cat broke his leg and had to get a pin put in it and he is on antibiotics also. :-) I do try to read the post in the garden every day but that is about all. Love

I write this with a saddened heart and am praying for a miracle! The extreme tiredness etc. that I have been experiencing the past year has not been all due to lack of rest, over-work and stress! My time is very limited and am not sure I will get moved to my shop after all! A nasty twist of fate but I'm not exempt from leaving this earth anymore then others are. Since I never had the time to really learn the web would you be kind enough to do me this favor? Ruth Ann has given me an award (attached letter) but I have no idea where it goes (on her page or my page etc?) Would you do whatever has to be done as I would love to have this award. Her site is magnificent! I've received many awards throughout the past 2 years but never see them and don't even know where to see them! Seems there was never time to sit down and learn the web as I was always busy with my regular life. I will always be grateful for your kindness to me and thank you for being my special "guardian angel". Please remember me in your prayers.....

From: Date: Sun, May 7, 2000, 7:21pm To: Subject: hi Don Howdy... well my day is upon me :-) I start tomorrow at Bank of America at 8:30 a.m.and work until 1 p.m. Then for 5 weeks I will work 8 to 5 Monday through Friday. Cool. Got my pad and my pencils, post-it notes, and highlighter all ready for my classes.   :-) Hope all is well with you. Healthwise for me, I am finally feeling better. Ever since I started gargelling with Listerine, my throat started getting better. My Dr. also changed my meds to Clariton, boy, what a difference. Gotta go now.... Love Norma.

I have "homework" so I am closing now. :-) Love to you and yours, Norma.

I'm soo excited about it and can't wait! How are things going with you? Have you heard from Rica in awhile? It seems like she's dropped off the face of the earth. I haven't heard from her since a easter email card. I hope she and her dad are ok. I suppose i should pay a visit to the garden. I haven't been there in a couple of weeks. I haven't really made any personal connections with anyone on the internet in awhile. thanks again luv sharon MY HOMEPAGE
