involve me...

i've never had a super long attention span for listening...i can do, i can read, i can participate, but listening for long times is difficult. thinking toward involving people in an issue that may never touch them personally, i think you have to let them experience the impact.

that's the thought behind my second piece for the red show. the brown piece in the middle says "tell me and i'll forget. show me and i may not remember. involve me and i'll understand."


I'm a pseudo Nana!!!

Kayci, our "adopted" daughter, who we've known since she was 13 has a new baby Karaline. Since we claim Kayci as our own, now we get Kara!! She is an absolute doll and a complete ham. We had so much fun with her....mom and dad aren't bad either. Hope you enjoy our cutie patootie!!

see red.....

so the Red Line Foundation is having an art show and i'm going to brave the critics and enter....

the thought behind it is that we are all a small piece of the cure...

not the Christmas season, although soon enough, but the 2007-2008 concert season for the OKC Phil. If you haven't been to the symphony ever or even lately, there is something for you this year. and not just because i'm the marketing person!! check out the website, www.okcphilharmonic.org, and if you see a concert you like, and you will, call me on my cell and i'll hook you up with tickets. it's going to be a fun year!

off we go for the ESWL..

ESWL (Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy): A non-surgical procedure that uses shockwaves to break kidney stones into smaller pieces. They'll put him under anesthesia, sink him in a tub of water and blast away. Sounds like fun...if all goes well, jim will "pass" the sand that's left and the stint will be removed in a couple of weeks.

here's hoping for a "beachy" keen result....

Rock on!!!

so thursday night i pull into the driveway and my phone rings. i hear jim's voice and words i've never heard him say. after 25 years together, he says "i need to go to the hospital". so i run in the house, get jim and a trashcan and we get to mercy hospital asap! after a couple of questions, an iv and a cat scan, it's determined that jim is giving birth to a kidney stone. after much drugs and a call to the urologist, we come home.

next day, we go to the doctor and he says outpatient procedure. we go back to mercy hospital, another iv, more drugs and now he has a stint in his ureter because the stone is too large to grab and won't move on its own.

this is all i'm allowed to show you of his manly "kilt" and man booties!!!

anyway, so we'll be off to the doctor's office again this week for more treatment. something to do with soundwaves, i hope jim likes rock and roll!!!
