During Trump inaguration I took this photo of the Capitol on TV. The reason I am posting this is because WE AS A NATION CANNOT LEGISLATE COMMON SENSE, DECENCY, NOR CULTURE. Stop and think if you are old enough that guns were never a problem in schools until the last few years. Heck you could bring a gun to school to go hunting or take it with you after you had hunted in the morning and NO one was shot. Also, some school had shooting classes and how to take care of your gun. WHAT HAS CHANGED is not the gun but the culture. No matter how many gun laws you have, evil people will kill. Until we address the root cause, you could ban all guns and the evil ones would still find a way to KILL. So here is my take on gun laws. Have just one. If you kill someone, immediate death pentlity. If you commit a crime with a gun, again give them the death pentlity. Why? Becuase if a gun is used in a crime they intended to kill you. Gang members should be rounded up and shipped to the front of the lines of engagements of war. If they dessert, death. I figure since the violent gun crimes are being blamed on the Capitol and the NRA, and the gun, why not pass a law that has teeth and since those who comment the crime care so little about others lives then they should forfeit theirs. Those teenagers in Parkland are ralling againist the NRA. Fact the kids are into a knee jerk reaction but the NRA has killed 0 people, nor has it used any tax payers money, however, this cannot be said about Planned Parenthood, who uses tax payers money to kill millions. But someone has to be the BLAME AND NOT THEM AND THEIR SOCIETY.
My MIL at age 5 who is now 98 soon to be 99. She could ride the interurban from Gallatin to downtown Nashville by herself when she was little and go to her Uncles office and he would give her some money and off she would go to the 5 and dime to shop BY HERSELF. Now children cannot play outside without an adult watching them. Growing up in rural Smith County, my family did not even lock our doors. Kids could go all over the community without fear of being hurt or taken. While my MIL and I are from differnet generations neither had to worry about school shootings. So what is different you ask. Look at the cultures and you will see why. Manners and respect were very promment in those times but not NOW.

I will never be able to THANK MY FOUR GUYS ENOUGH for their caring and support.
I confess as I was searching for single photos of these fellows it was VERY HARD to locate a photo of just each one( could not find one of Ed) thus all of the above photos are dated. Looking at the photos Bill is the oldest male first cousin and Ed is the youngest of the first cousins males on Prince's fathers side of the family.
THE KITTY JUSTICE IS I LOVE EACH ONE AND THEY SHOWED THEIR LOVE FOR THIS FAMILY KAT WHEN HER PAWS WERE DOWN.

Finally first of May I went to my GP. His last statement to me was "That I was ate up with it".I asked him what was it and he said Arthritis. I previously told him I thought it was a nerve in my neck and he poo poo that idea and said it was my shoulder. Got a pack of steroids and some pain pills. Those pain pills were like eating candy for all they did. As soon as I stopped the steroids the pain intensified. Mother's Day weekend I COULD NOT USE OR MOVE MY RIGHT ARM and yes I am right handed. I called the GP and his receptionist said HE SAID "THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE HE COULD DO FOR ME."
Nashville is known for good doctors but the second doctor I saw at my GP"s request had a need for a major attitude adjustment. He took only x rays no other test were made and he said there was nothing wrong with my shoulder but when I asked he ignored my question as to why it would not move. He said I had A LITTLE ARTHRITIS IN MY NECK. He must have spoke with the GP as he said that doctor was treating me correctly. But the WORST think he said was "I WILL BE HAPPY WITH 70 PER CENT MOVEMENT BACK"
He would be happy what about ME. I wanted as much movement as I could get. But hen again it was not his major arm that was affected but mine.
Prince was upset and so was I so Prince insisted we go to another doctor and a whole new group not in the network of our insurance.
More x rays and no test, the lady doctor but gave me a steroid shot in my shoulder and months of therapy later I was only a little better off than when it began.
Plus the worse was my right hand was swelling badly and it was like that for a whole month. I called up dr #3 and she said unfortunately they only did three things, shoulder, knees and hips. She advised me to return to my GP.
To have stay in good faith with the health system, I sent him a snarky E mail telling him the problem and tongue in cheek ask if there was anything he could do. His reply was go to a hand specialist.
ME, MYSELF AND I
called up the doctor who had fixed my lower back problems before . At the appointment the first thing he wanted to know was who referred me and I told him" me, myself and I" because if he could not help me I knew he would refer me to someone who could which he had done twice before. Next he wanted the history and what test they ran. I kept saying only X rays no other test and he would silently shake his head. I saw him the first of the week by Thursday I was having an MRI and on Tuesday the next week HE in person called me. In less than 2 weeks surgery on my neck was done . I have new metal at C 5 and C6. I have exercises to do daily and he said it would take at least 3 months for the nerve to heal.
THE KITTY JUSTICE THERE IS GOOD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW .
ALSO, TRUST YOUR OWN INSTINCTS BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY BODY YOU HAVE.
FOUR DOCTORS LATER AND I AM ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY.

Our dear teacher and friend died at age 97 but oh what a life she lived. She was born a Georgia Peach . Then for a few years she lived in Cleveland TN but most of her early life was spent on Sand Mountain Alabama. Her family grew acres and acres of potatoes and strawberries and trucked them as far as Arkansas to get the best price. Being the sixth of seven children, well she just was not interested in farming. As she got older, (girls were not sent to high school in her area) therefore, she went to stay with some family friends in Fayettville, TN where she went to high school and finished at age 22. She met the love of her life, Melvin in Fayettville and she was a waitress and her husband was a cook at the same place but they wanted more out of life. In 1950 they moved to the big city of Nashville. There she went to Watkins Institute and took art under Morgan Steinmetz, a renowned illustrator. Her only child could not say the instructor name so he called him Pops and thereafter when you heard Hazel talk about him he was referred to as Pops.
For five decades , Hazel would be one of Nashville's most honored and celebrated art and ballroom dance teachers. Yes she and Melvin gave ballroom dancing lessons and when Melvin died in 1999, she continued into her eighties with instructor Gary Groves giving lessons in dance. I could list all her achievements but others have done that and all you have to do to read those just google her Hazel Mae Crye King.
To be invited to Hazel and Melvin's parties given at their home was to see a variety of people. Rich, famous, poor, white or color etc etc. They loved people and the more the merrier. Unfortunately, I got to know her some time after her husbands death thus I never went but heard about them. But you never knew who would be there. Bill Dees brought this upcoming artist to one party and and he began to tap out the rymthem of the song on the table and then Roy Orbinson sang his new record for the party goer which was titled "Pretty Woman".
Her favorite saying was "Whenever in doubt use purple." I guess the skies sunsets and sunrises will have more purple in them in the future.
The Kitty Justice is I am sad for those who did not get to know her and Happy I was one of the fortunate ones. RIP Hazel
