hey there say, sooze... NOTE TO SOOZE... NOTE TO SOOZE:
if she doesn't see this, please email her, i have dial up and
it's just slow--can't do it now, here is the note:

you should be getting an AUTOGRAPH dog, soon, that is for blitzo...

i did not know how much turn for the worse he had taken, so, i thought
it would be FUN for him to collect autographs from visitors...

:( i reckon, i should have had the idea sooner, but i just happened to
see it on sale for 2 bucks at the store, just the other day...

well--keep it out by his bed... the PEN with it, may be too thick for
fitting lots of signatures on it, so you MAY NEED a BALL POINT PEN...

YOU NEVER know, he may have clear moments and this would still brighten his thoughts to see what folks do with signing the little dog...

JUST FINISHED the name hug quilt, ALL THE NAMES of everyone on this post, just BEFORE THE LAST TWO DAY, WILL be on this quilt...

sorry, i could not get the new comers on it--will be puttting them on the pillow, though...

but--the pillow that you mentioned would be nice for his feet AND
phylp's LOVELY REAL quilt, will have to be late, it was just
far TOO much to get done... :(

i will embroider nice stuff about the taco, on her quilt, for blitzo, too,
but i can't get it there until another week and half... it is VERY thick,
for cooler night...

THIS ONE IS very thin, light and easy for blitzo to keep and curl up with, or just have on his lap to hold...

well, it should get to you ON MONDAY... i have some fund to pay for it, faster-shipping now... god's grace arose in time for me...
as, i have birthday money on hand, :)

well, REMEMBER TO find some fun way for blitzo to enjoy his
little autograph pup, and give him a hug for me...

love to all...
now, i am getting all sentimental, too...
got to go pray now...

I am at a loss for words.
Blitzo is always in my thoughts tho.

The DUDE is an Awesome, climbers Photographer.
You go to MP, and LOTS of the climbing areas posted there
have Blitzo photography. He's been EVERYWHERE, and knows EVERYONE!

I'm not sure how I know this, but I do.

Blitzo is too good a dude to have to hang out here anymore. It truly is better on the other bank of the River. He must of had some glimpses. I have.

Ask him.

Don't feel sorry for him. I wouldn't want that.

I only met the dude briefly, many moons ago. Probably burned one with him.
I could be wrong on this , but it is something I feel from the heart.

Peace Out, Billy.

Neebee, I can't wait to see the quilt! And the pillow! So much love is poured into such a thoughtful and lovely gift! Blitzo will be blessed to wrap up I side of it with all the positive love it contains. He hasn't been reading the forum lately so I will tell him all about it tomorrow if the nurse thinks he is ok to have a visitor. Praying and sending good vibes with you for our friend!

hey there say, agent... wheww... i had finished the group-post-hugs quilt, but i had to do the hand stuff to hold its back-and-front, together, wheww... i just finished it and am washing it, as i had to use the floor a few times, and i want it clean for him...

it is going out in the mail early, so i posted that it is as good as sent...

i just saw legg's name on this thread, and got it on in time, and had room for 2 more that are new, but i DID not sew those names, they are on the BACK, in pen:

you will see them...
you can sew over them, if you like, >:D<

(leggs, is now sewn though... and just saw clint, but i had no room for him so will put him ON the pillow, or, i might be able to write him onto the back, as well--will see after it washes...

i sure hope the shape will not get distorted in the wash...
REALLY REALLY i did not do a very perfect or well job, as,
HURRY was my main concern now...

NICE HISTORY to this quilt:
a climber named jack menendez, that got my brother chappy started, when they were just kids, as to climbing, well:

HIS wife VOLUNTEERED to help embroider some of the squares...
she just has been through her own battle with cancer...

she did about 20, and then i added them into the ones i did...
so, we have REAL climber HISTORY in this, all for blitzo!!

well, been up all night, working, so i got to go sleep...

oh, might as well tell you know, so i do not have to add a note, and can get to mail faster in morning:


each square kind of matches the 'handle/name's as best i could...
THOUGH a few just don't...
tan for climber-words, terms, dirt, terms, etc...
green for outdoor handles, etc...

lines for real names that can be 'signed on the line'...

flowery for households...
gingham for ???

satiny, for karl and nature, as they like india...

red for 'attention type names'...

blue for blue-names and water stuff...

etc, things like that...
that way it is easy to REFIND names, after you read them...

they are NOT put on by names, though, they are put on by colors to
at least match a bit...

well, got to put quilt in dryer now:
has no inner batting so is EASY to wash and dry for him...

That cactus is sitting on my patio table. He took that shot only a few months ago, back in the spring. He also taught me all kinds of stuff about the local flora and propagating different plants.

Not to worry!!!...

I'll water THAT cactus, soon!!!...

"He also taught me all kinds of stuff about the local flora and propagating different plants."...


Never ceased to amaze me the vast knowledge he has on the subject...

Being with friends and family who are terminally ill can be heartbreaking and painful, but also a transcendent experience. When the physical end is near, love flows as easily as water. There is a beautiful clarity about what matters.

Sending caring thoughts to you all.

A good quote to remember here is from Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, as his time was approaching: "Let us cross over the river and rest in the shade of the trees on the other side..."

Even though I've only known Bill for a brief time, we did get a chance to hoist a few cold ones together at a couple of the Boulder HH's; a VERY cool dude, indeed.
