Our Stella

It is with sadness that I share we have lost our Stella on 08.08.08. She was outside and of course the unthinkable happened. She was hit by a car. Thankfully, she never saw it coming nor suffered. Charles and I shed tears this morning remembering how she had to be in your face...loved to be patted. He even asked Jesus to give her a pat this morning.

As we were leaving the house I noticed Greta was in but not Stella. We looked and Ryan spotted Stella. Charles and I both said..."No, that isn't her." But Ryan was correct. He was the one who picked her up and wrapped her for burial. We took her to Choctaw "Racoon Ridge" and Ryan buried her with some help from me. Charles couldn't help at the time.

She died a loved pet. We will miss her "speaking" to us as she often did when she wanted to play, eat, or go outside. Thank you Stella for all those wet kisses. She also gave me a precious Granddog, Huxley that lives with Kacy in Chicago.


Cutest Blog on the Block

The Cutest Blog on the Block CHECK IT OUT!!! I haven't had a chance to try out some of the neat items for blogging...but will soon!

One Week Later has been a week since the TV hit the floor. Many of you have asked how it all turned out. Here is the overview...
  • the morning after I tried to talk to the manager before I left for the conference but she did not come to work on time...and I had to leave
  • turned the "talking" over to Charles. I gave him her name and phone number. He called the last time at 10:30 am but no May Li
  • I talked to him after the conference as I was on my way to Hattiesburg and Charles summation was...They have us over a barrel. When May Li was asked about the TV, she said emphatically...I was going to pay. Charles became a fit frustrated trying to talk to her because she was a bit rude...and nothing makes him more upset than a young person being rude to elders.
  • Charles called Better Business Burea...fill out a complaint on the Internet...Called Quality Inn corporate office...that was a joke.
  • I considered stopping by as I left Gautier...but I was tired and really didn't want to go through what Charles went through.
  • I decided to call May Li. I enquired about the Inn having insurance...she said not for a TV...what if I had gotten hurt? What if a child had been hurt? I told her I should have stayed in the Hampton Inn across the street which has flat screen plasmas bolted on the wall ;-)
  • After 20 or so minutes with me trying to encourage her to do the QUALITY thing...we came to me paying half. IT IS NOT THE COST OF THE TV...I just wonder what is right?

Charles keeps checking the credit card to see if it has been posted...but it hasn't yet. So...TV or not TV...that is the question!
