    Good Mamo Tech 

       Recently, I had a long overdue Mamogram, which I so dreaded. I had a

    bad experience as some of you know. This young lady was so patient and
    considerate. She first introduced herself as the other one should have.

       The room was different and she stayed in the same room as she zapped 
    me. And she went through all the steps that she would do as she did them,
    even placing the metal ‘thingies’, you ladies know where. In retrospect, I’m
    sure she wasn’t going to take any chances. I told her how I appreciated her
    and I had to report the last one. I figure she already knew all about it.

       She told me to hold my other breast so it would be out of the way and 
    to hold my shoulders back. I hope that because of the few zaps, it didn’t 
    mean I was getting a double whammy on my mammies.  lol  We’ve been
    hearing about these MRI’s that are using too much radiation. I must say 
    that my overall experience was nothing like what it was before. Sharon
    is an asset to that hospital and such a blessing to all women she zaps.

    Blessings Always, GGB

      Hi Great Granny: I\’m so happy your tech was considerate! I know first hand how painful these can be when the tech is inconsiderate. X

      I remember you blogging about your bad experience, so glad this time went well. I must make an appointment for mine, I just keep forgetting to make one. I just hate them too. I had a good chuckle about the bit about the double whammy, that was funny!Have a great week Great Granny!

      Glad this experience was better for you. I hate those things too, and it is a fact, some of the techs are better at it than others.

      I remember when that other one happened too, and thank heavens this was a good as it could be, experience. Much love and hugs to you and your girl Kassey and thank you for coming to see us today.

      I don\’t like doing that because they push hard as pancakes lol! I wonder maybe someone told her about you? that why special treatment you have had this time:-)

      Boy are you lucky you had her! They certainly aren\’t all that nice and gentle! I seem to put off those exams until they threaten me. Maybe I SHOULD get in there and get it done…now I know there are people like that out there. Hope I\’m as lucky as you were!

      I have yet to go for a mammogram. My doctor keeps bugging me year after year…and I always tell his the same thing. I\’ll go when they invent a machine that does the same to a man\’s…… (I think you know where I am going with this one). I really should though……the reason I haven\’t is really silly….they don\’t want you to put deodorant on prior to the exam (and its not even as if I really need to wear deodorant…but its just one of those things you automatically do ….like brushing your teeth before you are ready to go out and face the world.I hope when I go for mine (I\’m thinking about it) there will be a Sharon there for me too.*Hugs and Blessings*~Karin~

    Windy And Cold 

                         It has been rainy and cold and windy. Thursday night I checked

                      my mail and my umbrella turned inside out. It’s my biggest and 
                      favorite so I’m gonna have to turn it back, if possible. Kassey
                       seemed concerned about it as well. I’ll have to add the pics
                       with the other albums. With this laptop stick, it takes awhile
                       to add to my blog.

                        It’ 34F here now and going into 20’s…who knows maybe a few 
                        snow flakes will fly by on their way somewhere else. 

                        Stay warm or cool everyone wherever you are and have a Blessed weekend, GGB

      The weather is weird all over the place. We\’ve got the warmest winter on record. (South western Canada) My daffodils and crocuses came up the 3rd week of January, now my Clematis is budding. I\’m just waiting for it to freeze overnight now and set things back again. LOLStay warm down there.

      It has been cold here with lots of snow. Thinking longingly of a warm sunny day.

    Out-Foxed By A Naughty Cat……..Kassey 

                                She says I’ve been naughty but I want what I want ‘now’. Yesterday morning,

                               I tried to get her up for my breakfast. It didn’t matter that I had food in
                               my dish, she’d had enough sleep. I tried to paw at the blinds, but they were
                               out of my reach. She thought this would stop me, but I jumped on her pillow
                               and walked across , then jumped down where her clock was plugged in. She 
                               saw me grabbing at the wire. Of course, she told me ‘No, Kassey’. I wasn’t
                               really going to catch it in my mouth as I always pretend to do. This always works
                               because, she said, ‘OK, I’m getting up.’
                               I guess my days and nights are backwards. I slept during the day, so I was 
                               not ready for bed when she was. I kept doing my usual manipulations, but she
                              said if I didn’t stop, she’d make me leave the room. Hah, ‘leave the room’! How
                              could she make me leave the room? I guess she was serious. When she got up, I
                              thought she’s do what I wanted……no, she closed the door behind me. I pawed 
                              the door several times, but she made me sleep somewhere else.                         
                              Actually, I think my schedule was changed because she has been getting offline
                              earlier and going to bed. I hear the laptop close, so I get my midnight snack and
                              I’m ready to go to the bedroom and get in bed after I sit by the window for awhile.
                              And to make her happy, I’ve been sleeping on her bed. We’ll see how tonight goes. 
                               Be good kitties and stay out of trouble.

                               Blessings Always, Kassey

      Hi Kassey! This is Bonnie. I have been having problems with my human too. Last night he didn\’t appreciate it when I sat on his shoulder and licked his head! What\’s wrong with him? So I left and he closed the door. Today it rained and there was no way the three of us were going outdoors. So we did our "business" in the house. He hates that but so what? When you gotta go……Then some phone company guy showed so we showed how tough we are. I\’ll bet he was afraid!!!I might sleep with dad tonight, if he\’s lucky!Take care, my feline friend. Who says dogs and cats can\’t get along?
