    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    I have friends in Omaha, that’s where I bought my Harley way back when. Did you know that Lincoln Nebraska is one of the most haunted cities in the united states?

  13. Violet
    Violet says:

    I didn’t know that about Lincoln….. could be scary !!!! Or are they friendly haunts ?
    Do you still have your Harley?

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Some of the spirits there are benevolent, others most definitely are NOT, like the one that haunts the state building, he scares the crap even outta me, and I don’t scare easily. Unfortunately I don’t still have my harley, though I’m not allowed to drive anymore anyhow. My ex husband got it, which seriously ticked me off, as I rebuilt that baby myself. ’49 panhead that had been modernized, rather poorly at that. Through going to swap meets, I redid her back to original, complete with a rigid frame, old SU carborator, and the original 6 volt system, heh.

  16. Violet
    Violet says:

    Thank you Frida !!

    How are you today?

  17. Violet
    Violet says:

    O.K. I’m staying away from Lincoln !!!!!!
    Too bad he got the Harley…. but how very cool that you rebuilt it yourself…. the more I learn about you… the more I’m amazed at your talents !!!!!!

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Hi Ravin!!! I’m swell, oh my that was straight out of the 1940′s and I’m only born at the end of those years. I am wonderful thank you!! Chicky hugs to you too!! How’s yourself???

  31. CAS
    CAS says:

    Violet! I’m so glad that you’re feeling better, but I’m still going to give you my old energy conservation speech (from when I was an active RN). Ahem … (throat clearing) … ok … think of your energy as a large rock on top of a hill, it doesn’t take much to get it to roll to the bottom, but it takes alot of work to get it back to the top … in other words DON’T OVERDO IT!! Or your rock will keep ending up at the bottom of the hill … another way to think of it is like a glass of water being filled one drop at a time, if you drink up all the water in one glup it’ll take a long time to fill the glass, but if you sip it and give it time to refill alittle you’ll still have water at the end of the day … give yourself rest breaks … often! Hugs!! :D

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Wonderful way to put such wonderful advice CASS. Christine is it not? I like that analogy

  33. CAS
    CAS says:

    I always found that my patients understood the need for not “overdoing” and taking rest breaks better if they could tie it to an image in their minds … the best thing it works for any age & any intelligence level because it’s so easy to visualize.

  34. Violet
    Violet says:

    Thank you Cas, I hear you, believe me, I do….. I am taking it easy and yes lots of breaks…. I know my limits….. I am being good…
    I am sipping the water slowly !!!!! LOL !!!!!! I won’t let it get empty!! Hugs to you !!

  35. CAS
    CAS says:

    I’m glad my Purple Chick! And with that thought I’m off to beddy-bye … (yawn) … sleep well all my darling Chicks!!

    Wow, Faith I’m with you… Lots going on in this pick!!!

    First & foremost, I’m so glad you’re back on your feet again Violet!!! I can see that you’re feeling better in your pick! I’m not even going to harass you about taking it easy – I can see that’s been well covered! Happy Day!!!

    Then the nekkid dance thing… I’m not sure even homemade chicken noodle soup could get me to try that!

    Weird about Lincoln NE. I didn’t know that. :O 8P My sis-in-law & family live in Omaha.

    Ravin (re)built a Harley!!! Wow, girl you are amazing! I’m sorry it isn’t yours anymore. :(

    Wow, I am late to the party once again! LOL What great news, Violet!!! I’m happy-dancing with all of you, but I have my robe on! Tee hee :D

    The more I read and post on here, the more I am amazed and impressed with all you ladies!!! :D

    Christine, great analogy for building up one’s strength!

    Ravin, fab to learn about you and your Harley, though I am sorry :( she isn’t with you any longer.

    Lynn!!! A Robe!! ::chants:: Take it off Lynn, take it off, take it off Lynn Take it off! ROTFLOL, just kidding, yeah, I mis my harley, but even if I still had her, I couldn’t ride her. I’m not allowed to drive a car even cuz of my balance issues, can’t imagine them letting me drive a motorcycle, heh.

    A beautiful purple pick, Violet!
    I am so happy you’re feeling better!

    And I must add my cautions to everyone else’s. A colleague had pneumonia with a collapsed lung. She was out for over a month and then came back 1/2 time for a week or so. She teaches PE, unfortunately she can’t take it easy at work.

    Lots of hugs to you!
