Mondays with Melitas – November 10, 2014

Well, here we are:  Tammy’s ailing computer is all well again, and the web site can crawl out of the darkness.  Except, now I am feeling puny and cannot convince my fingers to type up the story which was set to go for Monday , October 27th, or then the next week, November 3rd.

    No, I am not leading up to putting the blame on Tam.  She couldn’t help it if her PC decided to just stop working while in Baja.  Maybe her machine was just too scared to be in a foreign country.
    My story awaiting release is about the Vice Warden Marcie and all our goings-on while Warden Alba was ensconced in hospital for 3 days getting a brand new knee, then going over to the Carlotta Rehab place to vacation for a week.
    Alba returned home, her “Warden” title stripped.  Marcie immediately left for her home, and here I am THE WARDEN.  It’s a good thing the DMV gave me a license to last till I’m a hundred and one.  I have to drive my patient around to see the Doctor, take her to Stater’s — things like that.
    Tune in next week.  Mondays with You-Know-Who.
    MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2014

  2. Glad you’re back. Hope the former “warden” is doing well! Looking forward to you getting back into the swing of things and writing your stories!!
    Love you!!

  3. We survived (barely) without the Indian princess! When you finally write your blog, be sure to tell how our first supper together was almost our last supper (fish sticks to literally die for…tee hee). Love, Marcie

  4. Oh how the roles reverse…. you were mentioned many times with honor,at the Fresno Rockets reunion, held each first friday in Nov. Joanne McLaughlin and Kay Rich picked me up to represent mom at the hall of fame dinner. It was an incredible honor to attend and hear the tribute they gave Bertha. Meanwhile Joann and I discussed the remaining Lionettes, and I think you two were among the few…. so stay well, and tell your marvelous stories,so many of us love them. Wishing you the best..always janice

  5. My dearest Mena,

    I am so sorry that I haven’t responded to your last blog. You are my hero now that you are driving Alba where she needs to go.

    I love you,
    Maxine

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
