    Hi again. I have been ultra busy, so I have been offline. Oh yeah, I created a huge controversy, but I don't care. I have nothing against white people or wannabes or anyone who celebrates our nations. I didn't grow up on a rez, so perhaps that's the reason why I look at things differently. We are all children of the Great Spirit, no matter the name people want to use for the Creator. It really blew me away when my daughter told me that we are ALL related, not one of us doesn't share some common ancestry. I understand what you mean about not making a big deal about it to people who don't know you well. I am so dark and NDN featured that it doesn't take a big guess, although in high school when I was at a football game, I wanted to impress a guy from another town, and I told him I was Hawaiian. LOL My friends to tease me got me a grass skirt. Haha

    Hi BarettaShawnee!!
    Got your mssg. Yeah, I posted in that "question for white people" forum. I posted again, but I don't know if they will show it. I told them the thread wasn't funny and that it wasn't cool to make fun of people. I said some other stuff too. Likely I will get kicked off or they just won't show it. I hate racism. I do. I think it is evil. But we'll see if they will post my message. I was polite, but I was firm. I know I won't win brownie points for being this way.

    Thanks for getting me back on your friends list!! TTYL

    Hi Ya Docat,
    Sorry that I could not get a response message back to you weeks ago, I was having trouble with sending you a message and as it appears that you were not on my friends list anymore so I had to reconnect with you to add you onto my friends list once again. I now see that you are on once again back on my friends list. Anyways..... it has been a real roller coaster ride with the weather here in the Elgin area, unseasonable temps that have been up and down, they are predicting that by the middle of next week we are to be into the mid to upper 40's ???. This afternoon / today we've had a mix of light snow and drizzle with hardly anything sticking on the ground. We have had real screwy weather this past year from one extreme to another YIKES !, I really don't know what to make of it all. I can't wait for the warmer months to finally arrive and get into my gardening and biking as well as outdoor Pow Wows. Take care and TTYL

    Is it cold enough for you up in Elginland? It has been warming into the upper 60s and low 70s most every day, but it did get cold frigid here last night. Hope all is going well. TTYL

    Hi there! I have been off the computer for awhile. I've been really busy. I home school the last child at home and she is going through physics and pre-calculus and is struggling. I was a math/science teacher, so I think these subjects are fun, but I get the universal symbol of the eye roll when I say that.

    I have a daughter in Elgin that lives near the Dundee city line, so she is very north. The other is in Chicago proper now, but did live in Elgin. They look just like me but younger. I'm in my 50s and those two are in their late 20s/eldest, early 30. They are both in college. The eldest studies to be a doctor. The other a teacher. Wow, what a small small world. But they did not grow up there. Just more opportunities near Chi-town.

    Oh, I thought I would also tell you how to pronounce Docat. It is like the legal term "docket." Sounds exactly the same. So if you see one of my girls, you will know how to pronounce it.

    Hey, I made it on your friends list!! Woohoo! I thought I'd stop by and check and see if you were able to get me on or not. Hope you have a really nice day today. It's beautiful in Florida. 80s and breezy.

    I am still thinking you sat next to one of my daughters. Two live in Elgin, IL and they go to events like that. We are often confused for each other until you get a closer look. I'm the one with gray hairs (which I conveniently pluck out or dye) and the crow's feet.

    To make me a friend, I think you go to my page and where it shows my friends, there is a click on sentence that says, "Befriend docat"

    I tell you, I am a believer in following instincts, and as you can see on my page, I don't ask a lot of folks on my friends list. I felt compelled to do so. It was meant to be, and I am willing to bet that you actually sat next to one of my girls.

    Ankle was better today. I have two elderly aunts that retired to FL and I moved to the same area. I had to take one of them to the doctor, so I toughed it out and did it.

    Sorry, it wasn't me you saw in IL. My daughters might have been there though. But of course they are much younger, but they take after me in looks. If you ever run into my look alike again, I'll bet you it is one of my daughters. Just ask her if she knows docat.

    I haven't been on here very much. I sprained my ankle, and so I started getting on again. I was in the arcade all afternoon. LOL It was fun.

    Glad to have a friend in you! :)
