Laila Mariposa
  4. Thank-you so much, guys! Chris and Susan, your thoughts and advice were especially meaningful to me, and I can identify. And it's really a coincidence, Susan---the chapter that I just wrote starts out with these words, "I'm broken." Wow! You should write too! I think it would be theraputic, and you would be an articulate and thoughtful writer. Since I'm dark ages all the way, I write in a notebook---penciled longhand---so I think I'll put this chapter on the computer, and anyone who wants to read it, I can send it. It's what I've written this week, along with a couple more chapters, as opposed to what I started 20 years ago, which has to be revised. So I can kind of do a little bit of back story so you get an idea of the characters, and you guys can tell me if it's worth revising the rest of it. It does have a lot of dirty words in it, and a lot of people lose their virginity. Chris, I love reading things that people I know have written, even if it isn't my chosen genre. I so loved Elizabeth's wonderful talking Greyhound. By the way, did you finish that, Elizabeth? It was great! Yikes! Laila just had diarrhea in our upstairs hall! She'll be back later. Halise, that sounds really unpleasant!
  5. Hola! I hab bin tryin to get Mom moobin onna Chrispmix kards, but she haz bin bizzy doin sumfin else she will tell you abowt herownself. That is grate that lotsa you are gettin trees an decorashuns up. We are goin on Satiddy to get owr tree. Fer the past 2 yeers, we hab bin goin to Wigle Whiskey to get it. Si, we get the Chrispmix tree at a plase that sells likker! It's a mosly owtside venoo, an is klosed fer the seesun, but fer 2 weekends, they sell Chrispmix trees. They allays hab nise ones, an part ob the price goes to a chairity you get to pick frum two. An plusalso, they gib you a free drink! Well, onny the hoomans. Tho we get to go too, an schmooze an start feelin the hollyday spirit. Sumthymes they hab a food truck, an you can buy odder likker too. So is fun. Then on Sundy, Dad will werk annudder 4 owers. Ivy, yer tree is gonna look beeeeyoutiful wiff alla the ornamints on it. Grate that cookies are bein made too! Ja, ja, Miss Nancy, si, lotsa crowns! Miss Vanessa, that is skeery abowt the distempermint. An the mumps! Miss Halise, how wuz yer crown bisit? Miss Chris, fanks fer puttin up Miss Patsys picshures. They are beeeeeeyoutiful. An we feel awmost warm lookin at them. Ja, ja, Lila, I bet yer Mom loooooves takin yer furs to werk wiff her! Ooh, Miss Susan an Miss Lucy, hab fun at that konsert. Whot a lovely way to start the Chrispmix seesun. Mom haz sumfin she wanted to aks, so heer she is: Hi! I think I might have mentioned that I've been writing a book for years and years. Well, I haven't actually been writing, I just started years and years ago, stopped in the middle, and keep re-reading what I wrote. I like most of it, but it's probably filled with stuff that is only interesting to me. And I've been thinking about re-working it a little, leaving a lot of extraneous stuff out. And I'm also going to move the year it starts up a few years. It had started in 1962, and I'm moving it up to 1964. That year probably isn't that interesting either, since a lot of people weren't even born yet, but lots of things started happening in this country that I wanted to write about. So, anyway, I feel like this might be a really self indulgent, time sucking activity. There is about a 99% chance that no one else will ever see it. But I love doing it. And right now, I'm kind of obsessed with it. I'm trying to write better than I have in the past, reading things that good writers have written, and pushing myself to pay more attention, sharpen things up, make the people more interesting, and the writing less cheesy or immature. I'm under no illusions that I'm a terrific writer, but I don't want to be a BAD writer. I just wrote something to kind of wrap up one character's storyline and move things along. And I got bored with the beginning, and am skipping ahead and writing about this character coming back from Viet Nam. And I'm thinking about dialog and certain characters all the time---I'll be trying to sleep, or walking client's dogs, and my mind is somewhere else entirely. Or I'll be researching things online. So...I guess what I'm asking is---is this just a form of daydreaming or fantasizing, and am I weird and unrealistic to do it? Oh---it's about sex, drugs and rock and roll. Well, yeah, that's basically what it's about. Mainstream trashy fiction, but hopefully decent mainstream, trashy fiction. And maybe....if I get brave, would anyone be interested in reading it? I won't be offended if you're not! I was a little scared to write this.
  6. Hola! Yay fer Misser Dan bein home! An he dint bring his frend IV. Ja, ja, ja. An yay fer Georgie bein home too! Its good they did that toe cuttin wile she wuz asleep.

I mailed 5 things yesterday, will mail 6 today, and still have 4 that will have to wait till Friday. And I have 2 things I'll hand deliver to friends in Pittsburgh! Whew. Auctions are fun. Until they end. But I think we did pretty well. We might hit about $1,700. For a relatively small operation, unlike Miss Nellie, I'm pleased with our total. And I want to thank everyone in the WFUBCC who helped---with donations or bids. Patsy, I feel your frustration. Don't worry. I did Private Message you on FB yesterday (It might have gone into Spam like Chris said, but maybe not---just look for that tiny lightning at the middle of the top. It should have a number---or two---in it), and I know Margie did too (she had your name on her half of the list). Yes, your postage is paid by none other than Vanessa, who is sending your pig to you, where he will wait till you return from your travels. He's a cutie! Thanks for your bid, and thanks, Vanessa for your 3 lovely donations. Chris, we are so happy you got your 3 kitty pin packages, and the coat! You are always a champion bidder, and we appreciate your support. And Nancy, you got 2 things! Thank-you so much! Margie sent them out yesterday, I think. Laila will return to catch up. Glad Sherman is okay!

Si, yestiddy, she tripped pritty good goin up the back porch steps at one ob her regoolar dog walks. A back porch she haz gone up twice a day 5 daze a week fer abowt 4 yeers! She had on her Bobs shoos (wiff the dog pics on em), an they are just cloth, an boy she hert her left big toe. It hert sumfin feerce yestiddy, but felt a liddle bedder at nite. It is all purpel. An today when she had shoes on to do sum errinds down there, she wuz limpin all ober. Fink it cood be brokin? How do you tell? She duznt wanna go to an urgent kare, cawse she duznt fink they wood do innyfing eben if it is brokin. Miss Jennie, what do you fink? Innyfing to do wiff a brokin toe? Oh, Mom duz remember well when the Presidint wuz shot. She wuz a seenyer in high skool, an herd the noos inna teechers lownge walkin down the hall. She wuz distrawt. She looooved that man. She cryed a lot. An si, Miss Caroline, alla the terribel fings onna TV inna daze affer. When Ruby shot Oswald, she wuz so emoshunal, an had a combinashun ob shock an "Good. I'm glad he's ded". An liddle John John salootin his fathers kasket. Moore teers. She cood cry just finkin abowt it now. Well, Mom duz love Misser Rogers too. But ob corse, she grew up inna Berg, an Misser Rogers is Royalty heer inna Berg. When she had apartmints in her 20's, she allays drobe past ware they filmed those shows. She is too old to hab wached him when she wuz liddle, but she allays thot he wuz a kind an gentil an wise man. That slow, comfortin cadense. An Tom Hanks unnerstands him well. He sed in an article that his show wuz nebber ment fer adults. Heer is whot he sed. An eben tho Mom nebber rilly thot ob it that way, she beleebs it is troo: The show was not for adults.... it was meant specifically for the mind of a child...specifically planned to enlighten the unenlightened. And he answered every one of the 50-100 pieces of fan mail he got every day. Wow, now Mom is feelin bery nostalgick, an ravver introspectib. Eben moore so cawse she is by herownself down there wiff River. An she is re-reedin the story she rote---an nebber finniched---so minny yeers ago. An she still likes it!

She went owt onna balconey inna bedroom an stood there till that lady left. She felt bad knot comin down to say goodbye sinse it wuz her last day, but she coodnt. So innyroo, she wunders WHY sumbuddy wood ware so much colone goin into sum persons howse fer a medical reeson. Duznt seem smart, si? An knot too professhunal---whot if these sick peepel dint like a ton ob colone? In fack, that is Moms pet peeb. Peepel who ware intirely too much colone. Yeers ago, she an odder peepel hadda aks one ob there co-werkers to stop warin so much colone. The were imbarrised an felt bad, an the ladies feelins were hert.
