Master ~ Hey Sweets... Good to hear from ya... Sounds like ya had a Great break !!! Awesome... Do I look anything like you pictured ??? I just got back from a three day motorcycle ride... Went through 3 states on the back roads to enjoy the beauty of Spring... Had a blast... Now I'm crammin' & playin' catch up between work & school, but it was sooo worth it !!! Now... to answer your question about Dream Catchers... Spirit & Truth... Our Elders teach that this is the Creators way... That all creation contains this duality... the "unseen" & the "seen".... That all physical objects posses a Spiritual force... This is true of the Dream Catcher as well... This beautiful object, without the Prayers & Spirit that go into it, is simply that... an object... It is when the Prayers & Spirit are added that the Power of the Dream Catcher comes to life... Traditionally Grandmothers would weave a small Dream Catcher to hang on the cradleboard of a child or they were hung high in the tepee... They were made with Prayers that the web would catch the bad dreams, while allowing the good dreams to pass through the hole in the center... The good dreams then fill the child or residents in the tepee with strong visions for the future & for life... Different tribes have different legends about how the dream catcher came in to being... But all agree on "What" the dream catcher is... As I've said before... We are a very Spiritual people, so Dreams are of high regaurd... They are interpreted as Visions... So the importance of "Good" visions or Dreams are a sign of a good life... Hope that answered your question... I make Dream Catchers as well as many other Native items... It's all about the Love, Prayers, Spirit, & Good that they are made from & the belief of the person useing them that give them a True Power... Big Hugggzzzz... Keep 'em wiff a Smile...

I started when a group would come. I said, "Hello those of earth and welcome. Enter into the world of Dr. Who." Then I took them through it. The real K9 was there. So was one of the Dialekes. Modles of the first Dr, Who upto the 1980 Dr, Who. One of the Dr.'s was a man who played Triston on the seris Everything wise and wonderful. I think he was the best of the Dr.'s. I'm an adult but I have to admit I loved the Elfquest comic. I like elves. I'll be 51 his yearbut I'm coming out of the closet. I love Elfquest and the Xmen. I'm not into Brony's or those ugly looking cartoon memes. I have 3 bookes on how to draw Japanse comics. I'm not a stuffy blah adult. I can do crazy things like going to visit a friend of mine who lived ib Oklahoma Cirty In Oklahoma with a cresit card and soldpages of my poetry for a dollar for food. I lived in my for three months while I worked some low paying jobs. One night a week I'd get a motal room to wash and clean my clothes. I kept a washcloth, soap, tooth brush/oaste and deorderant. I did try to take baths so I didn't stinl.;) I worked for a commmmmmmmmpany that used nurses aids to take care of older people.I was place with some mean, grumpy woman who's sister called scatter brained because her sister hadn't taken her meds. I can't give her the meds. SHE had to take them. That was not in my list so she yelled at me saying "I'll call channel two. I told her she didn't have to. I was leaving. I had to call the company and get me out of these. One lady who was blind. She'd get up. I made her breakfest the she'd sit and smoked in front of the Tv and drank whisky or vodka all day long. She ran out of one of the two handed me mony and said "Go get me two bottles." I couldn't do that. I couldn't buy alcohal for her so she told my supervior that I was trying to kill her by putting rugs or towals in front of her. I left that too.Then I went back to school to become a specaily trained asisstant called a cardiac asisstent. The only thing I couldn't do was give meds. I was there about 20 years. THEN a 350 pound 6'4 man with all kinds of lines in him decided he wanted to go to the bathroom. I told him to wait until our two male nurses came to help but he wouldn't wouldn't wait and then he fell on me ending my career as a CA.

Hi dear MF. We're okay - missing Jerry (poor Lolly keeps looking for him) a lot but knowing he's not hurting or lost anymore. It's gonna take some time, but soon we will get another rescue who needs love and a home - Jerry would like that. Hope you are well
By elizabuff on Nov 22, 2012 at 10:09 PM
Jerry is just fading away. We're taking him to the vet tomorrow and let him go peacefully. He can't see, he can't walk, he won't eat or drink. He's done. So hard to say goodbye to such a wonderful friend who has been a part of my life for so long. I am thankful I had the chance to know him,
By elizabuff on Nov 21, 2012 at 11:39 PM
I never will leave his side. He's now curled up next to my tummy and I can feel his every breath. Lolly is sleeping fitfully about 6 feet away and comes to check on him every 15 or 20 minutes. It's very touching. Such wise little beings they are. Bless you for listening.
By elizabuff on Nov 21, 2012 at 11:06 PM
Breathing is shallower and he mews off and on but calms down if I whisper to him softly. This is so hard but it's also an honor - does that sound weird? I just feel privileged that he's allowing me this time with him. It's just so hard to imagine my life without him. But I know he will always be in my heart and soul watching over me.
