I May Need An Attorney

I called my sister Kelly tonight. I have called her every night since I got home from abandoning her at MD Anderson. It isn’t like I left her there completely alone. Our older sister, Charlene, is there with Kelly. Of course, Kelly says Char is only good for hair and make up. I'm not sure but I think Char may be falling down on the job.




Anyway, Kelly sounds absolutely wonderful. Her pain is more manageable and she is working hard on her physical therapy. I am really proud of her and I sincerely mean that. If I had to face a drop of what she has gone through the last three years, well, I would have been balled up in the fetal position in a corner years ago. No, seriously. My sister is by far one of the bravest people I know. And I am not just saying that. I truly mean it. I only post embarrassing pictures of her because she normally looks like this.




I am just jealous of her. That’s what she says anyway. I admit, Kelly is a very pretty woman. She has always had a great figure, pretty face and a brilliant personality. Seriously. That is probably part of what always got her into trouble. Not that I am going to tell you about any of her “problems”. That would be wrong. Besides, I don’t think she meant to attract wealthy, old men. Sometimes, things just happen.




And the whole sailor thing. It was a phase, people. A passing phase. She was like a room mother to those boys when the ship docked.




Most of the time, Kelly was in her backyard hula hooping, minding her own business.




Except for when those parties would somehow erupt in her backyard and more old men would show up. She was like a light attracting moths. Smelly, wrinkled, old moths. It was amazing. But I can’t tell you about any of it. That would be wrong.




Anyway, she is married now and settled down. Kelly is ready to get out of that hospital so she can get back to work…and drinking Baileys. Not that she has a drinking problem. I would never suggest that. And when she finally catches up with this blog and shows this picture of me at trial, I will simply plead insanity.




Besides, it was Kelly herself who suggested I write about her. I am only following orders. I'm obedient like that. Anyway, I am going to finish packing now since we leave for the airport in about twelve hours. Yep, tomorrow we are on our way to California for our youngest son's wedding. Truth be told, I am downright sad that Kelly won't be there. I know she is pretty sad about it too. I told her not to worry, that I had found a dress and she would be proud of me when she saw the pictures. I promised her it wouldn't be any worse than when we were in Char's wedding.

I may know an attorney that can help, possibly, well... at least he'll put up a good fight. Have a great time in Cali and don't get in trouble in that sexy dress! (or out of that sexy dress, either)

Really nice story about your sis. Just reading "MD Anderson" made me think of all the hours I spent there in the sixties with kin. Hope your sis comes right. She sounds very special indeed. Hope she is kind to you at your trial. Because there WILL BE a trial. Sisters nevah forget...Blessings from Down Under.

These are great pictures! You'll have to take lots and lots of pictures at the wedding so Kelly can see everything! Or you all could set up a webcam at the wedding, LOL!
I'm glad Kelly's pain is more manageable now and I am constantly in awe of her bravery as well and her positive attitude. Here's to a quick recovery!
Have fun at the wedding!

I'm so happy she is doing better and I have a feeling you are going to be in trouble but I bet you are used to that!!

Glad to hear she's doing okay but yeah...she's gonna get you BAD for posting those pics. ;-)

Coby said...

You are a wonderful sister...

especially for wearing that dress in Char's wedding. Seriously.

Enjoy your son's wedding!!!

Monkey Man said...

Kelly won't have time to sue you, she'll be laughing too hard.

TechnoBabe said...

Hey, if you are only doing what she asked she won't have any gripes right? The wedding is getting so close now, I know you will have a wonderful time and you will feel pretty and sexy in your awesome dress. Enjoy!

Deborah said...

When your sister catches up with this blog she is either going to kick your ass or laugh her's off.

I'm laughing mine off btw. You are a damn funny woman.

Nicole said...

God you make me laugh. That was so funny! Thanks for the update on Kel and the smiles today. Have a wonderful trip -- I was just sitting poolside and it's sunny and 72 in Southern California - you're in for some nice weather. :)

Lily Robinson said...

Have I mentioned that I love your sense of humor? Well, I'll mention it again...

Can't wait to see how you look in your girl costume. Have a great time at the wedding. 'See you' when you get back.

Auntie Cake said...

Yeah, you just might need a very good attorney. I have a name if you should need it!

Glad she is recovering from this latest surgery. Hopefully her recovery will go smoothly from here on out. And yes, she is one beautiful lady! And yes, we need to see pics of you in the wedding! Enjoy it!
Kate
PS- you are wearing me out, the week after the wedding, you only allowed to relax!

Wanderlust said...

Hey, if she's healthy enough to come beat you up... silver lining! Enjoy the wedding. xo

Enchanted Oak said...

Hey, I just got back from my mini-vacation and found out you're headed to my home state. Maybe we could meet for coffee the morning after the wedding.
I'm so excited about the phenomenal dress! I knew you'd find something, just knew it. Can't wait to see your gorgeous goddess self in such attire.
God bless Kelly, and God bless you, and God bless your son's marriage.

I think your sister may kill you once she's better. Comparing her to Courtney Love? Hilarious!

Stopping by from SITS!

NZ ~ You obviously have sisters or are one. Either way, my sympathies. :-)

Glen ~ Me too!

Coby ~ Are you ready for this? I still have that red velvet dress. It fits my right thigh.

Techno ~ Sisters plus no gripes will never add up.

Nicole ~ I kept wishing I could see you when I was out there. One of these days, when you least expect it. You have been warned.

Dinah ~ I am keeping your info. I may be calling.

Teresa ~ There is no doubt, revenge is coming.

Marie ~ It was in Temecula wine country. The only things in Tehachapi are tumbleweeds. Oh, by the way.....I definately danced. It was a sight to see, I am sure.

Jingle ~ Yes, we are!

Momsicle ~ One word...Depends.
