It is as we thought, bullies in power can do what they want. DB and I talked with the third lawyer yesterday afternoon. There is no "hook" to litigate. Not sexist--all women in the same work category. Not ageist--the people who were bullied out ... Read more

It was a great day driving with one of my fiber friends to a town on the Mississippi for a Spin-In set up by another friend. All together we had 15 spinners from the eastern 1/3 of Iowa. It was a great time of chatting, spinning, sharing lives s... Read more

This photo is actually a number of days old. The rug is much wider than this shows. Like picking up knitting every time I sit down at the table, put the thimble on my finger and start stitching it grows. I just need to sit down at the table more... Read more

At the night knitters meeting a friend who has been retired for two years opined that it can be a full-time job meeting with friends for breakfast, coffee, lunch, tea, etc. I had not thought about it at the time but, yeah, it could be a full-tim... Read more

I promised a photo of the rug that is in a braid that I am sewing together. I did not forget but things were a little crazy. Right now the rug is 420 feet of ... Read more

Monday, March 20, 2017      2 comments

The original reason for being in north Iowa was an art exhibit but we extended the day hiking at the local caves. At least until we realized that only one flashlight would not give us enough light to safely walk the caves (too early for the ligh... Read more

Not the bicycle kind but the fiber kind. Two friends and I met for a great morning of spinning and then to lunch. We had such a great time that we have already scheduled the next time to meet! It was so nice to be among "my people", fiber people... Read more
It is a little hard to keep up with lawyers

The second lawyer said that she is not the person to move this forward if we wish to push it. She also said she is uncertain there is nothing more than bad luck/awful supervisor on my part; terrible decisions, practices, and perhaps jealousy on ... Read more
Braided Rug

I met with a gentleman today who wishes to have his mother's oval braided rug sewn back together. The original rug was room-sized but was taken apart and cut in half. His daughter has her half sewn together but his part (420 feet, he thinks) was... Read more
We have work happening

Lawyer # 2 is confident that she can get at least two things: 1. a retiree ID which gives me access to the university libraries as well as other perks, and 2. if not the insurance costs, uncontested unemployment. Plus, when we talked with a... Read more

Today we meet with the second lawyer who is known for not litigating (fine with me) but works in the background to get what clients want against the university. Since the first lawyer said that what we are looking for as an outcome is quite mode... Read more

Managed to get two good walks today. Grand total of 65 minutes at 17 minutes/mile. It was a good day: cold but sunny. The wind could have been a little less but then we would have gotten much hotter walking. As it was I was quite comfortable. DB... Read more

Today I was going to meet with friends for lunch at the building. As of 9:30am I am still banned from the building. The response I had to my request was really weird-they have to check with central administration. Of the university? That makes n... Read more

In the meeting this morning the lawyer agreed that we seem to have cause, but his family is linked in the background so I have the names of two other lawyers to contact. And so it goes.... Read more
