June 2:


It is this woman above and this woman below I live my life in the images they have shown over the decades---their selfies are much like the ones I do... RiP Maureen O'Hara and Veronica Lake

so if you ever see my selfies...and I am like a "ham" is because I try to imitate these ladies' poses:

I adored these two women all my life since young and as well Shirley Temple / Pippi Longstocking...

first night for "Rootie" the plant (Toni's plant visiting me) and the area that was draining is finally scabbing up.

Much golden yellow liquid draining from my pores.


Speaking of missing ...In loving memory and thinking of you Tye Seets... R i P ...

and you too Mark Fowl...

GIVE TO YOURSELF FIRST and if any time left then that is for others...that is how I roll.

DRUM TIME---I missed out:

I did not attend - I just am not into the concept of full moon walk with ladies- that would be a solo path for me.

TG made a walking path for us:

June 4:

still healing up and no ML, not a spider bite- loads of fluids drained from many areas:

wrote legal team. blocked *"*".

Sometimes, it seems when I am sick or tired someone likes to orchestrate unnecessary moments when it is not needed. Watched a few Christmas Hallmark movies and back to good and sappy happy me.

still draining much golden liquid all through the day...

June 8: hoping this 3-5 times a week medical moments slow down soon--- as a housewife not a frequent driver or passenger to the roads ... I truly dislike traffic and how people in Arizona drive...

park time while hubby looks for work in Scottsdale...I took the pets to the park:

Mae happy to see Johnny..ran to him:+-

June 10:

Hi Lathe :)

"Rootie" beginning to blossom:

TG got me a set of earrings (lymphatic drainage) but we ended up giving everyone a pair at the discussion - so this is the one I kept out of the 3:

one side of my face/jaw normal---other side pocket of fluid...and yes I did the ol push face in to make it look real full in below photo...

took photo from hip up to show you how an angle of a photo can make me look different ways--- the swelling in person is there but not as bad as image shows:

TG showing MM the walkabout that TG made in 20 days (5-6 through 5-26):

Ladies Group with everyone present even MM drove over 1500 miles to get there.

Hubby dropped me off. Went to desert 7:13pm to help redo "_____"'s kitchen area.

June 11: I relocated this scorpion:

the fella was in "____" beer storage area.

I do my best to refrain from killing anything, but I do have in 2023 a mosquito / fly / no see-ums zappper. Why did the Noah's Arc have those and gnats?

It was so good to see Patton- Charlie's dog. Worked more on that kitchen area and made lunch. Hubby got me at 7pm. Soaked and crashed.

"_____" rudely made comment and I was assured that God will handle that person and stay away from that person. I have zero tolerance engaging with ill mouthed folks. Let God work on them.

Charlie's dog...

Patton and me saying goodbye for now:

<<<<< OWIE- hit head on corner cabinet with nail :( yes, I wept- hit it hard.

June 12: I was going to AZSAL and Dr Nelson but because hubby had shift, I moved it to Wednesday. Did long walk.

goes to dead links so I passed on submitting my chance to win:

"____" stopped a few hours 6pm - we watched Library dvd--- ate food bank food. Left by 8ish pm- cleaned out emails until 11pm.

June 13: 6am. Noon - Ladies gathering to TG's for June/July birthdays. Give MC some clothes out of my closet.

A Private Message from Dr. Richard Gerhauser, M.D. (

MC came by and picked up some clothes I gave to her:

I predict MC will pick and love these shirts:

You are seeing me wear less makeup if any at all because mine is old ... and no extra finances to go get any ...I care about my skin enough to refrain from putting old stuff on me. Plus I have been draining from the face so I want the pores to be free and open to drain. Thank you TG/MP/KP/MC/MM for the bday party since I will be busy getting some final threads on one section for the F B I done 6-23 thru 6-30-23.

we all wore our tiaras...

Birthday Girls:

June 14: BEGIN WITHIN, AZSAL 10:30-4:30pm -Very productive long day- I will be spending a full week at AZSAL soon to finally close this area out. What I find soooo bewildering is how quickly people discarded me as a concern / a threat on the aftermath of the fire vs. pick up a pen and paper and stand with me because had I had the numbers this would have been done quicker but most everyone rather me move along --- and that is a disservice to the fallen --- S_____, F______, D______, Sc____, DH____ are the only ones I can rely on to help me in all this even to this date. I know some of the GMHS loved ones would possibly help but I am not allowing them to feel the "tough reoccurring disappointments" that happens in the aftermath of all this...I rather at their own time and will read the journal or reach me back channel for anything else that is not placed public yet. There are a few I am limited to sharing because I own the public records and texts/emails of how bad they wrote about me back channel and I also note what Jerry Pfingston told us on that hike and the paperwork I own --- I will always wonder if that man that was missing at his dinner table is the same man that took the inventoried items and the paper trails stops there ... public records show possible association then I think how "who" was always allowed the media time so it is an area I am left limited to share to people I know who caused harm and hurt my way...

I am going to place these in the June 28-July10, 2013 Files vs. here since they are "live" posted journal posts already and this post will not publish until New Year's Eve:

even ill and in pain I made my appt. wearing the mask they prefer us to wear there...

June 15: Can you see oxygen? Some areas to lives cannot be seen but you just know, and I know I am very close to more truths coming out to the Public at Large on the fire I almost died on.
