MAY IS MULTI CHEMICAL SENSITIVE AWARENESS MONTH!!!!!

MAY IS

HUMAN CANARY

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) is a
medical condition characterized by debilitating
chemical sensitivities. People who are chemically
sensitive are made sick by exposures to
chemicals found in many common products such
as pesticides, perfumes, tobacco smoke, new
carpets, air “fresheners,” new paint and building
materials, and many cleaning and laundry
products. Most of these chemicals will make
everyone sick at high levels, but for chemically
sensitive people exposures to even small
amounts of these substances can cause
symptoms. Some chemically sensitive people are
only mildly affected while others have the more
severe form of the illness called MCS.
Symptoms experienced by people with MCS
range from mild to life-threatening and include
headache, trouble concentrating, nausea,
diarrhea, fatigue, muscle and joint pain,
dizziness, difficulty breathing, irregular heart
beat, and seizures. MCS symptoms in children
include red cheeks and ears, dark circles under
the eyes, hyperactivity, and behavior or learning
problems. After an exposure, symptoms may
occur immediately or be delayed for up to a few
days. Reactions may last from a few seconds to
weeks or months. People with MCS often react to
a variety of foods, drugs, molds, and pollen as
well as chemicals.
Creating a Healthier Environment
Reducing exposures to chemicals improves the
health of those with MCS. Better air quality also
helps promote the health of everyone. The
following are ways to create a healthier
environment:
· Avoid pesticides, use least toxic integrated
pest management (IPM)
· Avoid newly built or remodeled buildings, or
build with less toxic materials
· Avoid new paint and solvent-based stains and
transparent finishes
· Avoid new carpets
· Avoid gasoline, solvent, dry-cleaning, and tar
fumes
· Avoid tobacco smoke and vehicle exhaust
· Use least toxic, natural, and unscented
cleaning, laundry, and sanitizing products
· Avoid perfume, cologne, and scented
personal care products
· Avoid air “freshener” sprays, incense, and
fragrance-emitting devices
· Use electric utilities or radiant heat
· Open windows, ventilate buildings with clean
fresh air and/or use portable room air filters

PERFUME IS AS ROMATIC

When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!!
ALSO IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE BRAND- OR THE PRICE YOU PAID– ALL PERFUME & FRAGRANCES ARE ALL TOXIC!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE KILLERS—–
Chemicals found in perfume
Over 1500 chemicals are used in most perfumes and fragrances.
Here are some of the most common ingredients:
Acetone- EPA hazardous waste list, and central nervous system depressant
Amylcinnamaldehyde- Irritating to eyes, respiratory system, and skin
a-Pinene- Sensitizer, inhalation exposure to high concentrations associated with irritation of the respiratory airways.
a-Terpineol- May cause ataxia, headaches, depressed central nervous system
Benzaldehyde- Harmful if swallowed, exposure causes sore throat, rash, and eye pain
Benzophenone- Disruptive to hormones and thyroid
Benzyl Acetate- Carcinogen, possibly a cause of pancreatic cancer
Benzyl Alcohol- Causes headache, nausea, and dizziness
Benzyl benzoate- Disruptive to hormones
Benzyl cinnamate- Irritant, dangerous for the environment
Benzyl salicylate- Disruptive to hormones
Beta ionone- Possible carcinogen
Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT)- Disruptive to hormones and thyroid, possible carcinogen
Cinnamyl alcohol- Irritating to skin and eyes,
Coumarin- Carcinogen, toxic to liver and kidneys, used to kill rodents, common ingredient in cigarette tobacco products
Diethyl phthalate (DEP)- causes abnormal development of reproductive organs in male babies and sperm damage in adult men
Ethanol- EPA hazardous waste list, causes central nervous system disorder
Ethyl Acetate- Narcotic, on EPA hazardous waste list
Eugenol- Sensitizer, allergen
Farnesol- Skin irritant, allergen
Formaldehyde- Air pollutant, carcinogen, exposure causes wheezing, allergic reactions, skin rash
Galaxoide- toxic to the endocrine system
g-Terpinene- Causes central nervous system disorder
Lilial (Butylphenyl methylpropional)- Disruptive to hormones, allergen
Limonene- Carcinogen, causes central nervous system disorder
Linalool- Narcotic, causes central nervous system disorder
Lyral- Allergen, causes eczema
Methylene chloride- Banned by the FDA, carcinogen, EPA hazardous waste list, causes central nervous system disorder
Musk ketone- Disruptive to hormones
Myrcene- possible carcinogen
Octinoxate (Octyl methoxycinnamate) – Disruptive to hormones and thyroid
Oxybenzone- Disruptive to hormones
Toluene- Carcinogen
Tonalide- toxic to the endocrine system

Fabric softeners
Some of the harmful ingredients commonly found in liquid or sheet fabric softeners include:
• Chloroform: This substance was used as an anesthesia in the 1800s up through the early 1900s when its potential for causing fatal cardiac arrhythmia was discovered. A carcinogenic neurotoxin, it is on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list. Inhaling its vapors may cause loss of consciousness, nausea, headache, vomiting, and/or dizziness, drowsiness. It may aggravate disorders of the heart, kidneys or liver. Its effects worsen when subjected to heat.
• A-Terpineol: Causes Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders, meaning problems relating to the brain and spine such as Alzheimer’s disease, ADD, dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, seizures, strokes, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Early symptoms of CNS problems include aphasia, blurred vision, disorientation, dizziness, headaches, hunger, memory loss, numbness in face, pain in neck and spine. A-Terpineol also irritates the mucous membranes and, if aspirated into the lungs, can cause respiratory depression, pneumonia or fatal edema.
• Benzyl Alcohol: This upper respiratory tract irritant can cause central nervous system (CNS) disorders, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and dramatic drops in blood pressure.
• Benzyl Acetate: This substances has been linked to pancreatic cancer. Its vapors can be irritating to eyes and respiratory passages and it can also be absorbed through the skin.
• Ethanol: Another fabric softener ingredient which is on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list and linked to CNS disorders.
• Pentane: A chemcial known to be harmful if inhaled.
• Ethyl Acetate: This substance, which is on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list, can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. It may also cause severe headaches and loss of consciousness, as well as damage to the liver and kidneys.
• Camphor: Another substance on the EPA’s Hazardous Waste list. It is easily absorbed through body tissue, causing irritation of eyes, nose and throat. Camphor can also cause dizziness, confusion, nausea, twitching muscles and convulsions.
• Linalool: A narcotic known to cause respiratory problems and CNS disorders. In animal testing, exposure to linalool has resulted in death.
• Phthalates: Used in scented products to help the scent last longer, phthlates have been linked to breast cancer and reproductive system problems.
• Limonene: This known carcinogen can cause irritation to eyes and skin.
• Also, if you follow a vegan lifestyle, you should be aware that many fabric softener sheets are made using tallow, a form of animal fat.
Manufacturers are aware that the products contain toxic chemcials. The packaging on many brands include a warning that the product should not be used on children’s sleepwear. Since some of the same brands also have large images of children and toys, however, consumers may miss the small print message.

Friendship and Fragrance

REBLOG FROM MY MCS SISTER LINDA!!!!!!! THANKS LINDA- YOU ALWAYS SHARE THE BEST INFO!!

Seriously "Sensitive" to Pollution

There are reasons people choose and enjoy isolation, but developing disabling adverse effects from the toxic chemicals in everyday products and materials is seldom one of them.

Do you know someone who says fragrances bother or disable them? Chances are pretty good that you do, now that 34.7% of the population experience adverse effects, ranging from mild to severe and disabling, from fragrance exposures.

When your friend, family member, or colleague informs you that something you use has an adverse effect on them, how would you respond?

Do you choose the friendship? Or the product?

Diffusing Health Harm on Unsuspecting Shoppers and Outrageously False Product Claims

GREAT INFORMATION HERE FROM ANOTHER MCS SISTER——- PLEASE READ——-

Seriously "Sensitive" to Pollution

Here’s yet another example of a systemic issue regarding health harming accessibility barriers, happening in a province (and country) where we have Human Rights laws that recognize people with environmental ‘sensitivities’ as having a disability, and where everyone is encouraged to remove accessibility barriers instead of creating new ones.

Unsuspecting Oshawa Costco Canada shoppers are being subjected to this fragrance assault and/or accessibility barrier between November 26, 2019 and December 8, 2019.

Info which was found buried on Costco Canada’s website in the Special Events page, there may be other locations as well.
How many members see these announcements?

In December, it appears that those who shop at  Costco’s Ste Foy location will also be sprayed, without alternative accommodations made for member shoppers whose lives are harmed by this kind of thing (unless there’s a public outcry before it happens).

Not only is the store air thoroughly polluted by this…

CORRECTED
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is basically a subset of Environmental Illness (EI), which is caused by living in a toxic world. The chemicals that were synthesized after World War II (including, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, cleaning products, detergents, etc.) are mostly “petro-chemicals” (petroleum based) and are quite toxic to humans. There have been virtually no studies done on the majority of these chemicals to see how they affect humans – the industry just placed the chemicals in the environment with the assumption that they are “safe, till proven toxic”, instead of the other way around. One of the biggest offenders is PERFUME and other scented products. Did you know that many of the ingredients in your perfume are the exact same ingredients found in GASOLINE??!! I didn’t either! The scary thing is that the perfume industry is NOT REGULATED at all – they can put any number of chemicals in fragrance without revealing what those chemicals are – or how they affect humans. We humans are all participating in a giant “lab experiment” against our knowledge and against our will, and it’s making some of us VERY sick.
Those of us who are becoming chronically ill from these chemicals are similar to the “canaries in the coal mine”. Coal miners would take a canary into the mines with them to warn them when the air became toxic. They knew that when the canary stopped singing or died, it was time to get out before it affected them as well. We “human canaries” are here to warn the rest of you that, unless you start making changes and avoid as many toxic chemicals as possible, you too may become very sick. Non toxic living is actually much “simpler” and cheaper!
Don’t be fooled, these chemicals are affecting ALL of us in some way or another. Think about the last time you got a headache for no apparent reason. Could it be possible that someone had recently sprayed perfume or pesticides near you without you knowing it? Had you recently used scented laundry detergent or Clorox to clean with? Do you get headaches or feel nauseous from being around people wearing perfume or cologne? Do you feel you need to hold your breath when you go down the detergent aisle at the grocery store? All these things are your body’s way of telling you something is wrong with the air you’re breathing. While an MBA in health care may help you understand the whys and wherefores of the medical issues it doesn’t take a masters degree to listen to your body and know that things are not right.
It’s like playing “Russian Roulette” – you never know how long your immune system can hold out before breaking down. Some people may never reach the point of “chronic illness” that I did – but most people are being affected, possibly without realizing it. Cancer has increased dramatically since World War II (after all the chemicals came out). Attention Deficit Disorder is on the rise (more and more of our children are being put on toxic, brain-altering drugs like Ritalin when simply cleaning up their environment could solve their problems). Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer’s Disease, Allergies, Asthma, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and Multiple Sclerosis are also increasing. All these illnesses could very well have a chemical connection to their cause or, at the very least, these patients would benefit from using less-toxic products. Pretty much any “immune system” disorder could be helped by a cleaner environment and by using safer products.
The products we use on our skin are absorbed directly into the bloodstream (the reason why nitroglycerine, nicotine, and hormone patches work). The chemicals we breathe (such as perfumes, formaldehyde, pesticides, etc.) all go straight to our brains and can cause low-level to severe damage – similar to how someone can snort cocaine or glue to get a “high”. Start reading labels – check for petro-chemicals, formaldehyde, and fragrance, and avoid them as much as possible. A clue that an ingredient may be a petro-chemical is the “prop” prefix. A clue that an ingredient releases formaldehyde is “Quaternium”. Be careful about products labeled “fragrance free” or “unscented”. Don’t trust them! Read the label and be sure they don’t list “fragrance” or “masking fragrance”. Don’t put anything on your skin you’d be afraid to eat, because the end result is the same!
Before I got sick, I had no clue that I was slowly being “poisoned” by products that I assumed were “safe” since they were on the market! If this could happen to me – YOU COULD BE NEXT.

My blackest hole with MCS–

I FELT I NEEDED TO SHARE THIS AGAIN——– AS IT MAY GIVE HOPE TO SOMEONE READING IT & MAY HELP EDUCATE THOSE STILL USING ALL THE FRAGRANCES & TOXIC CHEMICALS & THINK NOTHING ABOUT DOING SO———- THAT IS EFFECTING EVERYONE!!!

sondasmcschatter

I have been asked to write about my worst experience with MCS– I’m not sure I can go there– because maybe I don’t want to be judged– I sure as hell don’t want to be mocked– BUT– I prayed about this & God assured me I need to share this– as I didn’t go through it to not learn compassion & learn to give HOPE– to everyone who has any form of MCS– so here it comes dead straight from my heart–

Several years ago Gary & I had an INN SITTING BUSINESS– what is that– well we had owned lodging– & knew you could not find anyone to take over your business so you could escape– so we started an Inn sitting business where we would go in & take over– & the owners could walk out & leave their business with us & for what ever reason– for a few days or a few…

SEPT. 29, 2019 WE ARE MOVED!!

WELL MAINLY MOVED— STILL HAVE ” STUFF” TO MOVE BEFORE WE CAN PUT OUR THREE PROPERTIES ON THE MARKET TO SELL IN BURNS, KS.

BUT WE ARE SLEEPING IN COTTONWOOD FALLS, KS & COOKING HERE & WORKING HERE– ETC -ETC- ETC -ETC!!! AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT– PRETTY MUCH SETTLED!!

MAIN QUESTION FROM MOST OF MY LONG TIME MCS SISTERS HAS BEEN- IS YOUR HOME MCS SAFE FOR YOU???  AND I CAN ANSWER –YES!!

WE HAVE ALL OF OUR AIR PURIFIERS GOING- NEW FILTERS EVERY PLACE– ETC– AND I HAVE TONS OF MCS SIGNS ON THE FRONT DOORS!!!!!!!

MY “MCS SAFE HOME SIGNS” ON THE FRONT DOORS & WINDOWS– I HAVE BEEN TOLD ARE “THE TALK OF THE TOWN”!! AND I SAY—— WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  THE MORE PEOPLE WHO READ IT—- MAYBE THE INFORMATION WILL SOAK INTO JUST A FEW OF THEM- TO BE EDUCATED ABOUT MCS!!!!!!!!! OK- I CAN DREAM CAN’T I???????????  🙂

WE ARE A SMALL TOURIST  TYPE TOWN & HAVE MANY OUT OF TOWN &  OUT OF STATE & OUT OT COUNTRY VISITORS!! AND WE SEE MANY MANY MANY MANY PEOPLE  EACH WEEK READING MY MCS INFORMATION SIGNS ON THE FRONT OF OUR HOME!!!!!! AND THEY HAVE NO IDEA– WE CAN SEE THEM OR EVEN HEAR WHAT THEY ARE SAYING!!  🙂

OUR HOME IS TWO 1880’S BUILDINGS THAT HAVE BEEN MANY DIFFERENT BUSINESSES OVER THE YEARS!

WE KNEW WHEN WE BOUGHT HERE– THERE WAS MUCH WORK THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE!! ESPECIALLY THE ROOFS! AND WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO GET MOST OF THE OUTSIDE WORK DONE BEFORE WINTER & COLD WEATHER & ALSO WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO FINISH OUR MOVE & GET OUR OTHER PROPERTIES ON THE MARKET FOR SALE!!

WE NOW HAVE A LAND LINE- AND FOR MY MCS SISTERS WHO SAID— I CALLED YOUR CELL PHONE- –WE DIDN’T HAVE CELL SERVICE IN BURNS, KS & WE HAVE 3 FT THICK STONE WALLS IN OUR HOME NOW & NO CELL SERVICE HERE EITHER!!

WE FINALLY HAVE INTERNET ALSO– ALL OF THIS WITH SERVICE MEN WITH SCENTED PRODUCTS-AND  IS A STORY I COULD WRITE A BOOK ABOUT—- AND AS I TYPE THIS WE HAVE TWO TV SERVICE GUYS IN THE HOUSE NOW!!

BUT BACK TO INTERNET- WHEN MY MCS SISTERS SAY-  –DID YOU GET MY E-MAIL??? I’M SAYING “NO’!!—– AS WHEN WE FINALLY HAD INTERNET— I DELETED 3,452 E-MAILS– I TRIED TO SCAN  THROUGH PART OF THEM— BUT I HAD MCS BRAIN FOG—- SO I FINALLY JUST DELETED THEM ALL– IF IT WAS IMPORTANT — PLEASE TRY AGAIN— YES– MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS STILL THE SAME!!!

CELL PHONE DOESN’T WORK— IF YOU WANT MY  NEW LAND LINE — YOU KNOW THE DRILL– E-MAIL ME—

MANY OF YOU HAVE ALREADY FOUND HOW TO GET A HOLD OF ME– YOU GIRLS NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME!! 🙂  LOL!!! I CAN RUN — BUT I CAN’T HIDE– YA FIND ME & HOW TO GET A HOLD OF ME!!  AS BLANCH TELLS ME– I HAVE PEOPLE WHO KNOW PEOPLE!!! 🙂  LOL!! TOO FUNNY!!!

WE HAVE 12 FT HIGH CEILINGS- AND 3 FT THICK WALLS—- ONLY WINDOWS IN THE FRONT & BACK OF THE BUILDINGS—– OUR BED RM IS BIG & SO DARK & SO QUIET- WE SLEEP LIKE LOGS!!!!!!!! IF THE TOWN BLOWS AWAY WE WON’T KNOW UNTIL WE GO UP FRONT- AS WE CAN’T HEAR A THING BACK THERE!!! 🙂  I HAVE LOTS OF WALL SPACE FOR ALL MY ART WORK—- AND HAVE IT ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE!!!!!

WE HAVE 2 BEDROOMS- & FAMILY ROOM-& DINNING ROOM & KITCHEN & LIVING ROOM & 3 BATHROOMS & A LARGE WALK IN PANTRY & 2 BIG STORAGE ROOMS– & ATTIC OVER ALL——- AND A 4 CAR CAR PORT & AN RV CARPORT- WE ARE MAKING 2 OF THE CARPORTS INTO A BACK PATIO AREA- LATER THE FISH PONDS WILL GET MOVED OVER- ALSO!!

AND TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SAID TO US- I’M SORRY YOU TURNED TWO BUILDINGS ON MAIN STREET INTO YOUR HOME— I SAY—- COME BUY ANY OF THE MANY MANY MANY FOR SALE BUILDINGS ON MAIN ST & PUT YOUR BUSINESS IN—-

WE ARE DOING MAJOR ROOF WORK TO THE BUILDINGS- & DOING MANY MANY MANY  MANY MANY REPAIRS TO THE BUILDINGS- THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNERS (WHO WERE DEAR FRIENDS OF OURS) WERE NOT ABLE TO DO IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS BECAUSE OF THEIR HEALTH!!!!!!!!!

WE PLAN ON PAINTING THE BUILDINGS & WE HAVE ONLY JUST BEGUN!!!!!!

WE WELCOME ANYONE WHO WANTS TO START A BUSINESS IN COTTONWOOD FALLS-THERE ARE PLENTY OF BUILDINGS ON MAIN ST FOR SALE- TO DO SO IN!!!!!!

THE BUILDINGS WE BOUGHT HAD NO ONE  IN THEM FOR OVER 2 YEARS— THE ROOFS REALLY NEEDED ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD RATHER THEY SAT EMPTY FOR MORE YEARS & LET THEM FALL IN!! MAYBE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW AS MUCH AS THEY THINK THEY DO!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂  LOL!!

WE ARE HAPPY AS MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE TOLD US-THEY ARE VERY HAPPY WE BOUGHT THE BUILDINGS-& HAPPY TO SEE ALL WE ARE DOING TO MAINTAIN THEM!! AND I GUESS WE WILL IGNORE THE OTHERS- WHO COMPLAIN TO US!!!!! 🙂  LOL!!

AUG 4, ’19 I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!

AUG 4, ’19 I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!   🙂  LOL!!!!

IN ALL THE YEARS GARY & I HAVE BEEN MARRIED WHEN EVER I’M EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING IN OUR LIVES—- I SAY TO HIM—— I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!! IT IS OUR FAMILY JOKE!!!!!!!

WELL—- I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START—– SO– I’LL JUST JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET—- AND SEE IF I CAN EXPLAIN!!!

FIBER FACTORY 1 AGAIN

IN ABOUT A WEEK THIS WILL BE OUR NEW HOME—— TWO 1890’S BUILDINGS ON THE MAIN STREET OF COTTONWOOD FALLS, KS. USA!!!

WE NEVER EVER- EVER- EVER DREAMED THIS WOULD ONE DAY BE OUR HOME——- BUT IF YOU FOLLOW GOD– HE DOES GIVE US SURPRISES IN OUR LIVES!!!!

WE ARE BUYING FROM CAROL & CHARLIE KLAMM’S CHILDREN–AS CAROL & CHARLIE ARE NOW IN HEAVEN—– AND THEY RAISED GOOD CHILDREN—— BUT NEVER DREAMED WE WOULD ONE DAY BE LIVING IN CAROL & CHARLIE’S FIBER FACTORY & HOME!!

IN THE 1990’S WE OWNED A MOTEL IN STRONG CITY KANSAS–— AND OUR DEAR FRIENDS CAROL & CHARLIE KLAMM WHO HAD LIVED IN TOPEKA, KS.  FOR YEARS BUT BOTH WERE FROM CHASE COUNTY OF KANSAS—- WERE RETURNING TO COTTONWOOD FALLS, KS. & ENDED UP BUYING TWO BUILDINGS ON MAIN ST OF CWF & TOTALLY REMOLDED THE BUILDINGS INTO THEIR  FIBER FACTORY BUSINESS & HOME-

SUE ELLEN REDONE

ALL DURING THE RENOVATION PROCESS– CAROL & CHARLIE SOME TIMES STAYED AT OUR MOTEL- AND SHARED WITH US THEIR PROGRESS- & PLANS & WE WOULD GO OVER & LOOK AT WHAT PROGRESS WAS BEING MADE—- AND HEAR THEIR STORIES—& EAT TOGETHER—– ETC– ETC — NEVER EVER- EVER- EVER DREAMING THAT ONE DAY WHAT THEY WERE DOING WOULD BE OUR FUTURE HOME!!

I HAVE ALWAYS SAID CAROL & CHARLIE ARE TWO OF THE NICEST PEOPLE GOD EVER PUT ON THIS EARTH- —- I DON’T REMEMBER NOT KNOWING CAROL & CHARLIE– I KNEW THEM BOTH BEFORE THEY WERE A COUPLE——

MY PARENTS BOUGHT CHARLIE KLAMM’S PARENTS PROPERTY IN 1968 JUST OUT SIDE OF CWF— THE DAY OF THE KLAMM’S AUCTION– WHEN I GOT HOME FROM THE ACTION—— I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL THAT NIGHT- AND THE NEXT DAY GAVE BIRTH TO OUR DAUGHTER!!

MY PARENTS WERE VERY GOOD FRIENDS OF CAROL’S PARENTS-  THE REMY’S & USE TO GO VISIT THEM IN FORSYTH, MO. WHERE THEY MOVED TO FROM CHASE COUNTY  WHEN THEY RETIRED—

AS I SAID— I CAN’T REMEMBER NOT EVER HAVING A CONNECTION WITH CAROL & CHARLIE.

Carol Klamm

CAROL KLAMM WAS ONE OF THE SWEETEST LADIES & I DO MEAN “A LADY”– I HAVE EVER MET— I HAVE NEVER HEARD HER SAY A HARSH WORD OR A BAD THING ABOUT ANYONE!! AND SO MANY TALENTS— SHE LOVED WEAVING- AND THEN GOT CHARLIE HOOKED ON WEAVING ALSO—- THUS THE FIBER FACTORY WAS STARTED!!

CHARLIE KLAMM AGAIN

CHARLIE DID ABOUT A BILLION THINGS FOR THE CITY OF CWF & PEOPLE IN CWF– MOST PEOPLE NEVER EVER KNEW ABOUT—— THEY WERE JUST TWO REALLY GOOD PEOPLE WHO DID GOOD THINGS—— AND NEVER EVER WANTED TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR DOING!!

CHARLIE KLAMM

CHARLIE HAD A LOVE FOR TRACTORS—— AND RESTORED SEVERAL AS ANOTHER HOBBY—- CHARLIE WAS A REALLY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER & I FOUND OUT FROM THEIR DAUGHTER KAYE’S HUSBAND THAT CAROL IS THE ONE WHO TAUGHT CHARLIE AGAIN—–   🙂

CHARLIE– WE KNEW WAS A PACK RAT!!!!  BUT WE HEARD A “REAL PACK RAT” FROM KAYE’S HUSBAND  CHARLIE WHO CLEARED OUT THE ATTIC—– I’M SURE WE WILL RUN A REAL CLOSE SECOND– IF NOT TIE WITH CHARLIE ON BEING PACK RATS– AS GARY & I BOTH ARE PACK RATS- ONE PACK RAT SHOULD NOT MARRY ANOTHER PACK RAT!!

AGAIN— IN ALL THE YEARS THAT CAROL & CHARLIE HAD THE FIBER FACTORY & WE VISITED THEM IN THEIR SHOP- OR BUSINESS- & ALSO THEIR HOME—-AND NEVER DID WE EVER -EVEN DREAM OF LIVING THERE————

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY— YOU ARE MOVING AGAIN—- AND YES –WE ARE —–AND WE ARE MOVING TO WHERE GOD HAS  DIRECTED US—— AND I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO TRY TO EXPLAIN THAT ONE————–

AND I’M SO EXCITED I COULD PUKE!!!!!!!!!  🙂   LOL!!!!

I HAVE BEEN PACKING- AND PACKING- AND PACKING– AND TRYING TO SIZE DOWN—-

THE PROPERTY WE ARE BUYING IS GOOD SIZED—- AND WE WILL NOT HAVE A BUSINESS- I REPEAT WE WILL NOT HAVE A BUSINESS— WILL NOT EVER OWN A BUSINESS AGAIN—— AFTER OWNING & MANAGING OVER 15 OR MORE IN OUR LIVES– WE HAVE HAD ALL THE FUN WE CAN HANDLE OF WORKING FOR THE PUBLIC & OWNING A BUSINESS—– WE ARE RETIRED — THE PROPERTY WILL ONLY BE OUR HOME!! I STILL HAVE TO SIZE WAY DOWN—- WE HAVE WAY TOOOOOOOOOO MUCH STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE KEPT GARY’S LOTS AT 716 MULBERRY IN CWF— SO GARY WILL MOVE HIS WORK SHOP IN TO CWF– AND HAVE THAT AREA— FOR HIS –DO WHAT EVER UNTIL THE TIME HE DECIDES TO SELL IT—

716 MULBERRY

716 MULBERRY HAS A BEAUTIFUL VIEW- AND LOTS OF STORAGE FOR US– & ALSO A PLACE FOR GARY TO PLANT MORE FLOWERS——- ETC——–

THE BUILDINGS WE ARE BUYING ON THE MAIN ST OF CWF——- HAVE BEEN MANY THINGS SINCE THEY WERE BUILT IN THE 1890’S & I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING STORIES-WHEN NO ONE KNEW WE WERE EVEN GOING TO BE BUYING IT——–AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE STORIES ABOUT THE BUILDINGS——-
