My brilliant Hurricane wrote a super funny post yesterday, an open letter.  I’m going to do the same, but for a completely different reason.  This morning at 7:33 I was asleep (duh), but my phone beeped.  I ignored it until I got up, several hours later.  I looked at it and there was some sort of twitter thing, but we were kind of behind and this is Daniel’s Monday so I didn’t have a chance to really spend too much time figuring it out.  When I DID go back and read the message, I had to read it about five times, then quickly get to my tweety page to make sure that’s what I was actually seeing.  Why yes, it was. 


    I tried to Direct Message back, but she doesn’t follow me.   *sigh*    Instead I’ve decided to reply here, in an open letter to the Idol Of My Youth: Cher!

    Dear Cher, thank you so much for the tweety message this morning.  I am honored that you took the time.  You are most welcome, and I will be glad to “Cher” your pictures and links forever more.  You are an inspiration and a role model, you show your real side, as well as Cher-ing your art with us all.  Please give your family my best, and I hope the new movie does well, but mostly I hope you enjoy yourself and have a good time with it.  Most Devotedly Yours, Julie in Eugene.

   Okay, now here’s the Dyslexic Witch Alert – I made a few mistakes yesterday, so I need to correct them.  First of all I said that the Autumnal Equinox might show up as yesterday, wrong, it might show up as tomorrow.  Fine, First Day of Fall is today, my time.  Also, I asked if Kristin’s husband’s birthday had already happened, no.  It is tomorrow, the 23rd.  Tomorrow is also my beautiful sister-in-law’s wedding anniversary.  She married Bruce (not Kristin’s husband, who is also named Bruce, but OUR Bruce).  I found Bruce for her.  We were at a softball game and I heard him before I ever saw him.  But, ya know, I was there because her brother and I were living together, so I already had mine.  I tracked that voice down, and the rest is history.  I love you both, and your gorgeous daughter too.

    In about five hours or so it will be the Full Harvest Moon (2:17 a.m. to be exact).  Hope you all got to see this tonight, or tomorrow, because traditionally they are amazing.

   My report on yesterday’s Cinnabon cupcakes:  I licked the frosting off, but I ate most of the cake.  Frosting gets a big yes vote.   That was the Tester Toast.  New toaster: a keeper.  Also, the new suit worked well in the pool today.  Not thrilled with how the back is kinda bunchy (that would be MY back,  not the suit’s back) but we can’t help that right now, what with all the cupcakes that need to get eaten and toast that needs to be toasted.

Please use me as a cautionary tale.  That is a picture of what used to be an entire adult sized molar.  It dissolved, inside my head.  And then gave up its fight for life by falling down into the bridge it was originally attached to.  I have a condition where my teeth just disappear.  Marty told me about it yesterday.  I had no idea this could happen, but we have been battling to save my teeth since we first met 36 years ago.  He was a brand new dentist and his brother was my 7th grade English teacher.  I needed a dentist and he needed patients, so we joined forces.  It has been an entertaining and yet dismal relationship ever since.  Find a good dentist, and see him/her a lot.  (And try not to yell at yours as much as I yell at mine, you have to know them really well before they let you get away with that type of misbehaviour.)

   Our card draw today is from the Robin Wood Tarot, the deck I use when you schedule an appointment with me to read your cards.  (I can also tell you how to schedule your dentistry during the right moon phases too.)

Knight of Swords ~  As we discussed the other day, swords are all about communication.  Things of the air.  Feathers, quills, pens, documents, words.  The Element of Air, wind, voice, and breath.  Knights are problem solvers, they ride in and triumph over the opposition.  They are righteous and true.  They soldier along until they have taken care of the problem.  They judge not, for their task is to stand up for all that is good and fair.

   We have a Knight by our side today, wielding his sword of honesty in voice.  Righting the wrongs that may be spoken around us, or even BY us.  Allow this Prince of Justice to be cut the path freely, so that we may write and talk and breathe with ease and with truth.

  1. Julie, I’d like some info about having a reading. Could you email me, please?

    b _ gotthardt (at) hotmail dot com.


    1. I’d love to. Will mail tonight. And as references, you can ask Kelly (Bona Fide Betty) and Sarah (Sure Thing) if theirs were helpful. They are the most recent ones I’ve done from here.

  2. You are cracking me up. Boy you are having an uber-full life lately. Toast, frosting, bathing suits, computers, bunchy backs, harvest moons and disolving teeth. Just a few. Teeth. woweee. I have horse teeth. braces twice. I even have all my wisdom teeth, altho they pulled some front ones so they could come in when I was 12. I got my first crown. Gold. I’m G, man. lol and lame. I think I need my first root canal. the xrays don’t lie even if it doesnt hurt or look bad. Bruce on the other hand has ‘not good’ teeth. I think they are disolving too. This gives me some new info.

    It is midnight and Mr. Nick is finally all packed. Big day tomorrow, Bruce’s bday, college move in, and the equinox.

    1. Well you are all busy too! Hope it’s a fun day and not too frightful. Tell Bruce Happy Happy from JulieLand and also make sure he has a check up soon. (Marty actually had some official name for this disolving phenomenon, but it fell out of my head the minute he said it to me.)
      I have gold crowns as well, I got a gold bridge two years ago, called it my Pirate Teeth. I will need more, but I love the gold!

  3. Hey. Your reading was great. It helped me and you sending the pics was great.

    Assvice – take each pic and put it on your desktop as wallpaper. Do this with each one, in the sequence that was drawn. Do each for a week to start. That way you get to do inadvertent meditation every time you use your computer!

    I’m so excited. My friend’s wedding is on Saturday and I’m staying over on Saturday night. Woohoo!

    I’m a bridesmaid (first time) and my outfit – corset bodice and a flair skirt. Purty, purty.

    As for teeth – parents – real good advice – take your children to the dentist BEFORE problems arise. Like normal paediatrician visits. That way when there’s a problem they are not scared.

    It’s the whole first-visit-in-pain thing with accompanying drastic measures that results in fear or worse – PHOBIA.

    Julie – hope things work out better.

    1. Thanks so much! And I love the wallpaper idea, very clever. You are exactly correct, the more time you spend with the cards the more your messages will sink in and be helpful.
      If you weren’t wearing all that anonymity we could see how beautiful you look in the wonderful bride’s maid dress!!! Sounds very cool.
      We started taking the kids to a pediadontist (sp?) when they were 2 or 3, precisely for those reasons. I knew they would inherit our crappy teeth, and we had insurance. They have much better teeth than we do, and I am really grateful.
      Let us know how the wedding goes.

  4. For me, The Knight of Swords always (for me, in my deck, not arbitrarily) means a new mental challenge or endeavor, or a new way of thinking.

    My hubby works with computers. He gets this one a lot when he’s contemplating the jump to hyperspace (new stuff).

  5. Well. If the pics are appropriately fabulous then I might send 1 or 2.

    Julie, please type in or copy in your web address on all the blogs you respond to. I had to do new phone bookmarks and couldn’t find you through anyBetty’s links! I finally remembered the spelling (but that lapse is on me not you). And lo- here I am again 🙂

    I just figure if someone sees a blog comment you made and wants to read more, they won’t be able to find you. Jus’ sayin’ 😉

    1. The *click on my name* thing isn’t working on other blogs? Crap. I’ll recheck it next time I make a comment somewhere. Thanks!
      I know I am showing up on the blog roll at Lucy’s, and I’ve used that to come back here. So that one, at least, works.

  6. The your-name-as-a-hyperlink only works on Blogspot blogs, I’d guess.

    Out of curiosity, didn’t you associate one of the Robin Wood cards with each of us growing up?

    1. I’ve noticed that some of the other blog dealies (not WordPress) work that way and some don’t. Not at all sure how to get past that issue.
      And yes I did have a card for each of you when I started reading with that deck. They area called “designators” -your dad and I had two each. I would imagine that now all three of you are adults you’d have two as well.
      You were The Sun (lol), Han was the Page of Cups and Em was the Page of Pentacles. Although, now that I just went through them, she is also Strength. Your father is the King of Wands, at home, and the King of Swords, at work. I am the Queen of Swords/High Priestess. I’ll have to see what you and Hanny have grown in to.
      (I love when you come here with these questions/insights.)
