    Smoky Chick – gorgeous picture of you and your brothers. Which one was the groom? And your kitten …. oooohhhhh …. aaahhhh …. so very, very adorable.

    Funny Chick – beautiful pick Chicky! I’ve been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings, and I’ve had to wear lavender, purple or dark teal dresses. I would have loved navy blue. :)

  19. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    HI!! Chicky Babe!!! How’s it going?? I have to put a wedding pic. up tommorrow for Ivy!! Kind of depressing, such a long time ago. “oh well” Been trying to think of a nice single gentleman, I could set you up with………….lol, maybe then I could get you over this way!!lol

  20. CAS
    CAS says:

    Hey, hey Funny Chick! It’s going okay, I had to have the car serviced today, so I took a little extra time (since I have to drive an hour and a half to get to the dealership) and bought some nice wooden beads at AC Moore & Michaels. That made me happy, on such a rainy day here.

  21. CAS
    CAS says:

    Oh, and Funny Chick, he’d have to be a really nice single gentleman, Chicky-approved of course! LOL! ;)

  22. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I do the same thing, I’ll run to Michaels & buy a few beads (instant gratifacation) it always does the trick!! Did you have the 15% off all the beads at Michaels? It’s been in all the beading mags.

  23. CAS
    CAS says:

    I have the beading mags, but never think to take the coupon with me. And since the closest Michaels is an hour away, I can’t just run back home to get it. Moments of Blonde!

  24. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    OF COURSE!!! Nothing but the best for my CHICKY BABE!!!!!lol

  25. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    There’s only one thing better then buying beads, and that’s if you can get a DEAL!!!lol

  26. CAS
    CAS says:

    Oh yeah! I’m all for the “DEAL”! My Nana is the Queen of the “DEAL”, she has been known to wait out sales, and even bring things back to be marked down to the lower price. Of course she doesn’t get out as much now that she’s 90. I’m going to see her on friday.

  27. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Those moments of blonde, sure can get in the way!!!! My daughter is the “Princess of the deal” Since she’s a hair-dresser at an up-scale salon, she has to keep up with the latest trends, and boy can she find the DEALS!!! She likes saving her money!!!! “SMART KID”

  28. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Well, I better call it a night, got to get up early & take care of my Johnny-Boy! Make breakfast & his lunch for work!! Take care talk to you tommorrow!!!

  29. CAS
    CAS says:

    She is definately on the right path, saving money is good! VERY SMART KID! Gets it from her mother I’m sure, lol.

    Well, my Funny Chick, I’m off to beddy-bye. I’ll talk to you tomorrow, dream sweet dreams of “Easter eggs found” and “deals on beads”. Hugs! :)

    funny chick,

    so glad to see your own Pick of your wedding, not to worry that it was “so long ago”… love the bead colors here, of such dreamy soft blues, silvers and that unexpected muscovite, way fun to see that reddish muscovite, kinda sneaky :)
    smoky chick, great to see a family wedding pic and one of your adorable kitten!!!

  31. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    thanks girls! very much!
    Anita – which pick has your weddding pix?!
    I dug some out of my own, I’ll have to post.
    Mark, in the L of the picture, who is 4 years younger than me, is the groom. He and I are tied as the ‘shrimps’ of the family at 6’0″. He’s one very good egg – and married a great girl!

  32. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Looking back at the pictures, I had to laugh. The tuxedo’s, were the latest thing in the 70′s, lol!!! Here’s the pic.:

    CAS says:

    Funny Chick how beautifully classic you looked! I love the bridesmaid dresses, you could wear them even today, and the fur muffs and hats (?) are so cute! I’m not going to say anything about the tuxes, except that it … was … the 70′s. :)

  35. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    HELLO, Chicky Babe, Thank you!! I was just a baby then!!!! Yup, they were fur. Does’nt John look GROOVY!!!!

    He looks Groovy-licious Funny Chick!! Even in the tux. Lol!

    CAS, Anita’s right – I had given up. I had pretty much figured I’d stay single – and then…..

  43. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Glam, You look marvelous dahling!!! How come your hair shows up red in pictures? Mine always looks dark brown!!!!!! It was a dark red, but, it’s strange!!!

  44. CAS
    CAS says:

    Thanks for the encouragement Chicks! I was engaged 4 years ago, but he turned out to be a right-royal (pardon me) bastard. Cheated on me multiple times during our 5 years together before I found out, fathered a child with another woman while we were living together, lied, was emotionally abusive … etc … I could keep going on … but … I’m over him, and ready to try again. I know that there are very good men out there, my sisters found them, you gals found them, so ….

    YUP!!!!!! You are better off!!!! Never to late!!!

    Hello all my lovely ladies!! Thank you SOOO much for all the great pics!!! I really love looking at pictures, especially from another time period. (Anita! lol ;) ) Everyone looked gorgeous in all the pics, thank you again I really appreciate them :)

  48. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Oh and CAS, I agree with Smoky Chick in that what doesn’t kill you DOES make you stronger. I went through the same thing myself with an emotionally abusive husband. What an a** he was!!! You will find the right one, think of the jerks as stepping stones to your prince charming ;)

  49. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Thanks Ivy! and Hello!

  50. CAS
    CAS says:

    It’s the old saying about “kissing alot of frogs”, I know that there are very good men out there, and I am stronger now for sure.

  51. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Yup that’s it, CAS! Glad to hear you are stronger from the experience, some women are not as fortunate and keep repeating the same mistakes. I have some friends who are going through that now. I can’t wait until I complete my last few credits so I can start working on my bachelor’s to become a therapist for battered women and children.

  52. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    yep, so dab a bit of frog repellent behind each ear and… you never know!

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Ivy, Right On! Sister Chick.
    Been there, done that too. My ex was an emotionally abusive stepping stone, the man I have now is a GEM!! If he were a gemstone bead on LB, I’d put him in my basket ASAP!
    CAS, hang in there. There’s a good one out there for you!

  54. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    LOL! Frog repellent I love it

  55. CAS
    CAS says:

    Ivy, I’m SO VERY proud of you for wanting to be a therapist for battered women & children!!!!!! Smoky Chick & Sweet Chick, my Marys, thank you so much. I’m going to go straight out for that frog repellent, a giant size bottle! LOL!

  56. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Thanks CAS I’ve wanted to be a therapist for quite some time now but just recently realized (last two years) that I have been counseling my friends on their abusive relationships and that it came very naturally so I guess it is my “calling.” That and BEADS!!! lol

  57. CAS
    CAS says:

    Ivy, some things just come naturally to us, nursing & working with cancer patients was natural for me for 25 years. I’m sorry that I emotionally can’t handle the stress of nursing anymore, but I know I’ll find something that will be my new “calling”. Until then there are always BEADS!!!!!

  58. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Hi, again, I’m taking a break, I just got done picking up two boxes of beads I dumped!!!! while fixing my bead room!!!! DAH!! I figured that meant I should stop awhile!!!!

  59. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Hello, Crazy Chick. Way to go, you would be a great therapist!!! My 1st (true love) slapped me once & that was the last time too!!! I found out he did’nt like me to have my own oppinion!!! Knowing me! can you picture me with someone like that!!!!

  60. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    HA! He’s lucky all you did was leave him! lol

  61. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    CAS, you work with cancer patients?
    I work for…probably shouldn’t say – but let’s say that we’re nationally, if not internationally known for that specialty – care and research. I’m a buyer. My hats off to our and all nurses – hard work!

  62. CAS
    CAS says:

    I worked for 21 years with cancer patients, and 4 years with the elderly. Mary anyone in my book who works in anyway with cancer care and research is very special. I’m proud of you too!!!

  63. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    AH, you chicks are GREAT!!!! You should be very proud!!!!

  64. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Thank you! I love what I do – and where I do it. I like to think that it’s my job to get my 3 R’s in here – right drug, right price, at right time. If I can do that – then the people downstairs FAR smarter than me can do what they do best.

  65. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Ivy, I was sooooo shocked, I did’nt even now what to do at first!!!! I should have decked him!!! Oh well! lol

  66. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Mary, Is there a program,or do you know of a program, that beaders could donate a piece of jewelry to, to make someone feel pretty while they go through kimo or radiation??

  67. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Interesting, Anita! – and great thought! There is the Look Good, Feel Better, which involves make-up and wigs, I think. You know what I’m going to do – I’m going to ask the folks in Social Services if they know of such. I’ll get back to you on that one.

  68. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Oh Anita, what a GREAT idea!! I would love to participate in something like that. I tried to donate my hair to Locks of Love last time I got it cut but there was a minimum of 10″ and I just couldn’t do it. Silly, I know, but I’m just too attached…let me know if anyone hears about a program like the one Anita described please! :)

  69. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    CAS, that must have been a very rewarding/fulfilling job for you. But I know what you mean, I think I would become way too emotionally attached to the patients. Kudos to anyone in that field of work!

  70. CAS
    CAS says:

    Anita, wonderful, wonderful idea!! You make me want to cry from the generousity of it. Mary, yes please let us know if you find somewhere!

  71. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    If there is’nt can we start something?? I’m not sure how to do it, but, if we put our heads together I bet we can!!!!! Thanks Mary for checking into it!!!!! Bless you!! And, CAS would’nt it be great!!!

  72. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I will! Thank you Anita!
    I’m under that roof 40hrs per week and didn’t think of it myself – but of course, I’m still getting my feet wet. My mom and I are the only ones to have worn any of my jewelry ‘work’ this far….

    Smoky Rose says:

    You are too cute, Little Chicky!

  80. CAS
    CAS says:

    I have a small piece of polished yellow quartz, nickel sized, that one of my cancer patients gave me years ago. I keep it on my bureau, and whenever I’m feeling low, I take it up and think of her and how lucky I am. It’s a little thing, a piece of stone, a rock, but it means the world to me. A piece of jewelry, no matter how simple, will mean the world to a patient undergoing Chemo (chemotherapy) or Radiation therapy (XRT). Cancer is such a self-esteem sucking disease in so many ways, something lovely made from the heart is everything. Ohhhh, … I shouldn’t get started, I can go on & on & on for hours…

  81. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    You’ve been so close to it, for so long! Of course you feel deeply about it. And well you should!!! I think more people should hear about it!!! I helped nurse my father-in-law, through kidney cancer!! He wanted to die at home! I helped, change his diaper & clean him up. It’s awful, but, rewarding at the same time!! We made his passing as pleasant as possible!! Something I was’nt able to do for my dad!!

    I can’t imagine doing as long as you!!! Many Many thanks to you, and all the others who have done the job over all these years!!!!

    Chickies , sorry I missed half of the conversations but I went to the physical exam. Did not eat all day(:
    Oh, well. My doctor told me that if my tests results will look as good as I do he will be happy!heh-heh!
    He is our family doctor for 28 years:)

    You chickies put me to tears with your caring. It is soooooo wonderful to help someone in any way posible.

    Hello ladies, such a wonderful conversation. wish I had the time or concentration to respond to every thread. Anita – love the wedding picture… classic
    Julia – you were beautiful on your 25th and just as beautiful now! Christine – you were so lucky to get rid of that guy – just hang in there – a good one will come along when you least expect it.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Are you talking about donating a piece to a cancer patient? How wonderful! I bet you could do it through a local hospital. When a friend had a double mastectomy last spring, I made a simple strand for her which she left on for days as she greeted well-wishers in her bathrobe. It’s amazing how something so simple can make someone feel better.

  90. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Yup, but, we thought maybe something bigger, like an organization of beaders, that can provide this as a service!!! You know like the locks of love!

  91. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    Hi chickies,

    I’m just catching up on your deeply touching conversations about past relationships and what several of you would like to do to provide support to cancer patients/survivors. I too would love to be involved with a project that would allow us to create some jewelry to folks who are coping with cancer. although I have seen some jewwlry in a local grocery store, figuring out how we can collectively do this in our local areas is always good. from my own experience as a human service advocate, I know the value of what jeannes gems describes of giving a piece of jewelry to a loved friend or family member whom we know is going thru treatment.

    joyce

  92. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Hey Joyce! Hi! I work in a major cancer treatment and research center – I’m going to see what I can find out about organizations for what we’re thinking of.
    Not to worry – between myself and Funny Chick – no doubt the info will be widely shared – even if you miss a day or so… how is life in the Emerald City today?

  93. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    This is a super idea. We don’t have anything like that around here but the hospital might be an idea.

  94. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    3K, perhaps there is a national organization that my folks here have a contact with – I’m hoping so, at least.
    I’m going to speak with the Social Work Dept. The few days preceeding a holiday are always super busy for them with discharge planning – patients going home to spend the holiday with their families – but come Mon/Tues, I’m going to speak with them. Thanks for your interest! :)

    J Yee smart chick says:

    hi smoky chick,

    life in the emerald city continues to be somewhat gray and chilly, followed by some days with lovely sunshine and warmer temperatures. I was looking at our poor trees, they are bravely continuing to put out leaf and flower buds despite cooler temps than normal for this time of year!!! otherwise, just getting ready to start my spring quarter and trying not to get too crazed about those sweet L.B. easter eggs :) … how are you doing???

  97. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m sorry you’re still having such cool damp weather. I was just there in Sept 2008 – and 8 of the 10 days were glorious, sunny, and warm. Folks remarked how unusual it was to have such a long stretch of sunny days. I hear summers there are great.
    I am well, Thank you. I’m finished Egg-ing. I got to 11. – I can’t look anymore, but it was fun.
    You’re getting ready to start your spring quarter – do you teach?

  98. Valentine Chick
    Valentine Chick says:

    Thanks for the wedding pix chix! HEHE! I just saw them b/c Crazy Chick reminded me you posted them. So I did a major search to see them! Beautiful!!!
