Joy A. Collura's Journal- Spring 2023 Recap Part 2

3-29-23 8:36pm: Weird week- I am trying to remember the events this week. I did not go to the mountains for my normal walks/RR times this week yet but will Thursday-

I got home last Friday morning. And let me recap the weekend...Last Saturday I went to ladies group 10-1 something then headed to the trails and met up with SB/BL...saw Jared and Ranger Dave...I was supposed to go Sunday to do my phlebotomy, but I took tension head pain meds so have to reschedule. What the heck happened to Sunday--- SB arrived around 9:30---FJS stopped by---then barely slept --- this was Monday:I recognized, I remembered, and I give thanks to the Lord for "Curtis Heaton" ( and Tuesday was workout with Toni and I was really wicked ill last night---22 times in 1.5 hours in and out of the bathroom and just losing my bodily functions. Toni asked me to come back and meet her 2020 Facebook friend on Wed. and we did. Margaret was there in start of the day and Martie was at the end of the day. I was in the desert for the first time riding passenger in a OHV. I got home and talked to RR about how odd this week has been even saw DPJ and Gracie today...heading to the mountains tomorrow then Friday is doctor's appointment and Kass's 75th bday party.

men yet. Night. Then ladies time Saturday through Monday due to guest in town. I can tell you this much --- this week is half over and I have not even done the normal regimen stuff.


Is Only The Brave a True Story? Is the 2017 Movie Based on Real Life? (

Is Only The Brave based on a True Story? | List23: Latest U.S. & World News

Knowing what I know there may be keypoints of facts in the fillum but for sure is far from the true story and let the FBI now figure it all out--- way too much and I will not be that one ---- heart wrenching alone knowing the news but when it surfaces even more heart wrenching how many suppressed it and how many bullied / trash talked about me or just how many wanted the narratives that were set to be glazed. Sigh.

Going through emails since my legs are unwilling to trail to the desert...believe it or not I went to bed about 1am ---shocker I know because I like to get to bed 730-330am. Anyways I got up around 10-11am and now I know today I will not be out with RR and so thankful he understands- I am even dreading the doctor appts and bday party in my current limitations and pain.

Here are the 2023 DFFM grants:

3-30-23 4:42pm: I barely could walk today maybe 15 steps so far and in those steps I thought wonderful idea, Joy...I am going to ask ADOT about their retention schedule on tragedies --- good records request. So we know DFFM stated ADOT is the custodian of records for their vehicles so let me go see what we can do almost 10 years later.



4-1-23: Slept 16 hours. I actually broke down at Sound Bath today because I must have had suppressed emotions. 3-31-23 was Kas's 75th bday party and I really showed up---even bought a gift and card- unheard of; I know. To see Kaye (Margaret) H. after almost ten years was uneasy for me. I went with open mind and heart- her husband was pleasant to me yet zip my way from Kaye. I am not looking for apologies but would be open to "fresh start" --- was not felt there. How did I heal from all those jaws dropping harmful folks--- well, God. God and I have been very active in getting the documented truths out. It is a huge task. I probably would have passed going if I knew Kaye was going but glad I went --- Kas deserved a nice time amongst all her friends. Awe struck is all I can say when I think back to that vile moment by Kaye and that crew--- how could they? did they know what I know? I am a walking testimony for God. That I know. I watched me be the community whipping post and when I look back I think mmmhmmm- did they know what I know? What a mystery. Anyways, I had some life changes this past week - 100% focus on health puts my desert moments on "pause" ---minimal times out until I regain strength.

I have my normal NTE time twice a week and my 3 hours Nordictrak bike time but walking the desert is on halt until mid month at minimum.

Looking forward to seeing Margaret on 11th.

There is my cancer follow up this month too.

Soon- it is time for one of my favorite conferences:



all of a sudden- fake job offers:

fraud subscription emails:

I started at page 10 on my emails to go through but I am gonna go through most recent back to page 10...

A federal lawsuit seeks to limit Forest Service use of fire retardant

Shit, it took almost ten years as I watched HOW MANY die of horrible deaths ??? but glad to see the topic at the front but permits are not the only thing that needs to be done - these people making the product and placing it down should possibly make it a MUST to read the autopsy reports and use YHF13' as a true case study...

they want one to pay to read their article above so I won't add more but 1%, Shayne? How about Caples RX as a good example or the Beaver Creek Fire in Idaho 2013--- do I go on???? I would imagine the number is larger...


Toni had Massachusetts guest this week- Trish and she made this cake for her:

on way to see Dr N in Scottsdale:

so at peace...even with the uncertainties at hand:

took pics of flowers at Walmart:
