Steve! How wonderful to hear from you. I was asking Bill a few weeks ago whether you'd been on the Mudcat lately. Please send a PM and fill me in a bit on how things are going with you?

Kat, it turns out that on Tuesday the 18th we're going to host a master class on singing techniques with a fine Irish singer, Donal Maguire. We got very short notice so I won't be putting up any cheeetah photos until at least Wednesday because prior to that I will be making the house company-ready. And looking forward so much to the singing lesson.

Sneak previews:
It's too late tonight but I intend to put up some photos of me and the cheetah (mostly the cheetah) "soon."

And, I almost never start Mudcat threads but I intend to do that too. Got an e-mail today from Cheetah Conservation Fund saying they received a $50,000 award for their brilliant project harvesting invasive habitat-spoling bush in Namibia and turn it into clean-burning fuel. Neat huh?

katlaughing, believe me I didn't get to cuddle up with the cheetah but he did step on my hand when I rested it on the table (cheetahs like to be on the highest spot possible so this one readily jumps up on a table to give the audience a better view). And I did get a private introduction. Cheetahs purr! It's amazingly loud.

Well, I can tell you one thing for sure. When Rita is ready to give that heart up, it is probably good for a couple of more lifetimes. It is one of the biggest, most loving hearts I have ever seen. Which is why they put it in her. Cause she is one of the most loving and caring folks I have ever met. And that's sayin' somethin' cause I been to 9 or 10 Getaways, 6 County fairs, a hog callin' contest, two goat ropins, and this thing guys do in a circle with someone in.... well ... never mind that last one.

Happy Anniversary of the coming together of the perfect heart with the perfect soul.

Much Love,

Mick

You gotta have heart
All you really need is heart
When the odds are saying you'll never win
That's when the grin should start

You gotta have hope
Mustn't sit around and mope
Things are not as bad as they may appear
So wait till next year and hope

When your luck is batting zero
Get your chin up off the floor
Rita you can be a hero
You can open every door
There's nothing to it
But to do it...

You gotta have heart
Miles and miles and miles of heart
When the odds are saying you'll never win
That's when the grin should start

Then you gotta have hope
Mustn't sit around and mope
It'd be great to be a genius of course
But keep that old horse before the cart
First you gotta have heart!

(There's a parody that deals with skin as well, but I'll spare you that one)


Well done Rita, and here's to the next 13 years.


Steve

Oh! This is nice. Yup, my heart and I are just starting our 14th year together.

You know, I really want to say Thank You to the people who've posted to this thread. (And to EmmaB, who sent me a "Happy Heart Day" card yesterday and now I know why.) It is lovely to connect up with all of you.

katlaughing we met Catspaw last fall; somehow, someday, we want to meet you too. Maybe if we go to Chicago for our zoo craft show in 2010. And WYWSIWYG, you've been much on my mind and I've been wishing we could visit you again but it was out of the question this year.

I've been thinking about visiting you too, Catspaw. Recently I met one of the cheetah handlers from the Columbus Zoo (I met the cheetah, too) and she wants to sell my necklaces in their zoo store. [If I can get any made in time for the holidays. Sound familiar?] She invited me out to meet and photograph their other cheetah and some of her other furred and feathered friends. It occurred to me that if that really happens maybe we could talk you and Karen into a zoo visit -- just think, you could see some fellow Mudcatters and see some Humboldt penguins. What a deal.

Love you all,
Rita

I would certainly have posted to this thread three years ago and I wondered why I did not. I finally remembered that I was posting very little because I felt so bad and was about to go to the hospital for yet another one of those annoying visits. I remembered that because its been 3 years this month without a cigarette.

So belated as it may be.........Rita, I am one of the multitude who are glad these anniversaries keep passing. You are one of the true spirits of Mudcat and without you (and that lame SOB you're married to) this place would not be the same. Karen and I had such a great time meeting you two last year and it was a pleasure to find both you and Bill were even much more than I had imagined.

Bless you (as much as an agnostic can do that) and the heart donor and all those Docs who have kept you with us to share all you are.

Whatever heart is in Rita, as far as I am concerned, at any one time-- is not replaceable. Recylable if needed, but not replaceable. :~)

Because she's what really makes it beat, ya know. With her real, inner heart. The one in her character and soul.


It's been too long, Rita. Room is ready.

Well, we missed the anniversary, but here ya are. Now it's 13 years! I just read a neat article on tricking the heart into healing through use of UV rays and ozone and thought of you, Rita, (as the young woman cited needed a heart transplant until they tried the new therapy) and of the rest of us who have been through some heart challenges. Anywho, thought some of us might like to read it and decided it would be nice to tell your heart happy anniversary, too! Here's the Article.

And, Happy Anniversary, Rita's Heart!

Sigh... Thank you for sharing this with me. We're having a discussion about shy people on the getaway thread. I realized I was almost too shy to put this up, it seems rather "I-centered," but I did want to share the wonder of it with my friends.

I've always thought of transplants as "medical miracles," but feel there's another more personal miracle that comes first; and that's when a family who have just suffered a sudden loss, can find it in their hearts to make an organ donation.
