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

NEWS STATIONS ARE SUPPOSE TO REPORT THE NEWS AND NOT INJECT THEIR OPINIONS.
SHOWS ARE TO ENTERTAIN NOT A PLACE TO REGURGITATE YOUR OWN POLITICAL VIEWS. WHAT MAKES THEM THINK THEIR VIEWS ARE BETTER THAN THOSE WHO VOTED TRUMP IN AS PRESIDENT.
SHOWS THAT ARE BILLED AS COMEDIES ARE FORTH WITH POLITICAL AGENDAS. THAT IS NOT FUNNY TO ME.
CABLE TELEVISION SPOUTS HUNDREDS OF SHOWS THAT SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ALLOWED ON TELEVISION.
ALSO IF YOU SEE A SPORTING EVENT WHERE THE PLAYERS DO NOT SHOW RESPECT TO OUR FLAG AND COUNTRY, TURN THEM OFF AND NEVER WATCH THEM AGAIN.
THE KITTY JUSTICE IS TO CUT OUT CABLE, REFUSE TO GO TO THE MOVIES AND DO NOT BUY ANY MUSIC ALSO DO NOT BUY TICKETS OR WATCH THOSE WHO DISRESPECT OUR COUNTRY.
OFF MY SOAP NOW AND I WILL DO MY PART WILL YOU?

1. Does anyone mend anymore or do they just throw it away and buy new?
2. Do protesters know how to mend our country or do they just want what they want no matter what it cost (time, money or division)?
3 MENDING IS AN ART IN ANY SITUATION.
Also the two daughters of Mimi's dear friend came for a visit and she could talk about old times with them. They also brighten our day.
The Kitty Justice is more family and friends should show up or at least give her a call. They might miss their chance if they wait too long. Can you hear them "I SHOULD HAVE......"
