This is from OzcatMum (Meredith Webb) on Facebook, Jan 21:
With a heavy heart I must pass on the news that our friend Dena Clark (“Catsablanca”) has passed away in the last hour. 💔🐾❤️
From her sister, Kim: “All, my beautiful sister has left her earthly body and is now whole and smiling. She passed peacefully in her sleep a little while ago. While my heart is broken, I’m grateful, and I know our whole family is grateful, for all the love and prayers shared in this group for our sweet Dena. I think we will have some kind of memorial service but not immediately. I’ll post when planning it. Thank you again. Love from Dena’s little sister.💔❤️”
Thankyou all, Cheezepeeps for your loving wishes and hopeful beems for our friend. Go well, Dena. We will miss you.
Dis rekwest comes tu us frum calicocoa:
Would you like to take part in a “Beta Reader” project? I’m currently writing a children’s book called The Calico Cat With No Name (And Her Five Kittens), and I’m looking for honest critiques of the story and style as it stands, plus subplot suggestions for the book’s sequels. (Cover and closeup image are attached.)
If you’re interested, please post here, and I’ll send you the first 4 chapters. As a token of thanks, I’ll send you a copy of the eBook as soon as it is available (within the next week at most.) The book will also be available as a paperback, and soon as an audiobook too.
I’d also like to mention that a portion of the proceeds from sales of The Calico Cat With No Name (And Her Five Kittens) benefits SNAP Cats (Special Needs Are Precious) – http://www.snapcats.org/, a nonprofit shelter in Santa Rosa that rescues and cares for “special needs” cats and kittens that mainstream shelters consider “unadoptable” (and would euthanize) – and finds them loving, “fur-ever” homes!

U may recall dat MuggleMary had a berry horriblol slip and fall last year. Today I gotted dis uppydate frum hur.
Ohai mai leej,
I’m missing all the teepeeps and cheezies. I have all this paperwork from Allina/Aetna, have to get things to my lawyer or Mayo that sometimes overlap, and my poor little brain can only handle one thing at a time.
I’m doing Physical therapy, involving walking backward and forward tossing balls up and down or waving flags in front of me while I walk and move my head back and forth and up and down. I’m also doing speech therapy which isn’t at all what it sounds like. She’s helping me with memory and coping skills.
We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of the slip and fall that altered my life, and I’m better. I still can’t smell, I’ve lost some of my hearing, but all the crystals are back where they belong in my ear. Remaining vertigo is due to brain damage, sad to say.sigh.
Will be visiting my brother Rob and his wife Rita for a week during Thanksgiving. They’re in Vancouver, WA and we’re planning on seeing some strange museums and such in Portland. Any Cheezies in that vicinity want to do a mini cheez meet? Not sure at all what itinerary will be once there. Leaving the day before thanksgiving, coming back December 5.
Mush lubz tew awl an ai hoap tew bi on teh innerwebs sometime soon.

Mamacat wants to let you know ….
For anyone ordering the book, just wanted to let you know this:
All proceeds from the sale of Widows Walk: The Day My World Ended And What Happened After, once all the associated costs have been paid, will be donated to the Stockton Music Boosters at the Stockton Schools, Stockton, IL. My husband loved talking about his time in Chorus and Madrigals when he was in High School, and he always thought it was very important to keep music in the grade schools. The boys and I hope that in some small way, this will help to do that. It will not be a huge amount, this will not be a best seller, but I know every bit helps.
Thank you to our wonderful music teachers at Stockton Schools!
Deh gud gnuz keeps rolling in. Dis am frum MuggleMary.
As some of you know, I had a bad fall on Nov. 28 and incurred a TBI (traumatic brain injury)that has made my life very interesting to say the least.
A couple of months ago I received a package
of info from the MN Brain Injury Alliance, and I’m very glad I did! Enclosed was an application to join a study about aftercare for TBI patients…being run by…ready? The World Famous Mayo Clinic!
I got the call a few weeks ago saying I’d been randomly selected to be in the enhanced care group. I had been hoping for this. To have the worst injury of my life be treated by Mayo is something I never even dreamed of!
When I left the hospital and aftercare, and had had a lot of follow up appointments, I still feel like the medical world had tossed me off the dock with a tiny lifeboat.
I didn’t know who to tell about some of my symptoms and felt pretty badly that I couldn’t even figure out who to talk to, and up they popped! Miracle!
My progress has been slow, if not minimal. I still get terrible dizzy spells, and it turns out there’s PT for that, and I shouldn’t still be so dizzy!
I got sent an article about other people losing their sense of smell,and discovered that a lot of people had similar phantom smells like I do ( cat urine and cigarette smoke).
I’m so grateful for all the help I have received from all of you,
and will pay you back if I get a settlement from the lawsuit.
Hugs and Schmoooz all around!

“I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you. And then I realized… you spent the rest of your life with me. I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away. And will keep loving me till the day we’re together again.
