Oh no! I can relate to having the shingles. I had them during the time I did
my phone interview for the job I now have. I was kind of out-of-it for the
first half of the interview, but, thank goodness, I perked up halfway
through. Mine hurt a lot but I was lucky that most of them were on my left
leg so I was able to function okay. I've heard of people getting them so
badly that it affects their daily life functioning. One person I know had
them on the inside and it was very painful. I did get a shot, too, when I
finally heard about them! 

And SRC, congratulations! It is a funny abbreviation to me, though. When I
had my Kitten Kabootle, a Himalayan, beautiful kitty, I called him an SRC
(spoiled rotten cat!). Most of my kitties since then have been called SRC or
SRK (spoiled rotten kitty.) They are, too. Toby especially is. 

Anyway I'm glad you're on that committee and I hope you can keep them

It rained a lot here yesterday and today. That reminded me of the Seattle
area. I used to be so cold almost all year 'round. Generally, it is a lot
warmer here, and warmer by quite a bit than San Francisco, which I think is
more like Seattle. Maybe a little warmer.

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. I did except for worrying about my
Dad, who has fallen twice lately, and that's just not like him. He's 91,
though, so I guess I need to come to terms with that. Mom is doing pretty
well. She is 89. They are still in their own home, thank goodness. 


Blessings to you in the name of Jesus Christ

understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy
paths." Proverbs #3#5-6

Good morning all! FRIDAY I received a letter from the Governor's 
Office informing me that I have been appointed to the State 
Rehabilitation Council for Department of Services for the Blind.  
I had put in my application so long ago that I figured I had not 
been selected.  I am very excited about this, however I'm not 
sure I will make the first meeting, which is on Friday.

I also went to the doctor on Friday because I have been having 
very painful headaches on the right side of my head.  The Aleeve 
(spelling) I had been taking was no longer working to get rid of 
the pain and I rarely get headaches.  Well, it turns out that I 
have Shingles.  As cases go, mine is fairly mild.  But it's still 
very painful, and I feel pretty drained.  So I will decide by 
8:00 tomorrow morning.  If I were to decide right now, the answer 
would be no.  I hate to miss the first meeting, but I have to 
make a decision at some point so flight arrangements can be made 
and so forth, so after talking with Deb LEWIS, I told her I'd 
make the decision by tomorrow morning at 8:00.  And here's a 
piece of unsolicited advice: if you are 60 or older and have NOT 
received a Shingles vaccination, please do so.  I will tell you 
that even my hair hurts.  Yesterday we had to run one errand and 
by the time we got home, I was wiped out and ready to go back to 
bed.  Poor Neena is not getting her walks, but the cold makes my 
head hurt more.  I'm ready for spring.  Lol.    Peace,    Debby 
and Neena
