"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Should I be concerned?

Each morning my left arm feels weighed down and numb.   It usually begins around 5 am and until I get out of bed my arm is heavy.  Some mornings in addition to the heaviness, I feel moisture on my wrist, palm, and elbow. 

Bill gets up around 4:30 am so he is never there for my heaviness.  I do call for him to rescue me, to help me work through the feelings of numbness I feel.

He answers each morning the same way...

"Athena, get off the bed, you are on her arm...and stop licking her hand!"
Introducing the heaviness I feel...she climbs up after Bill gets
out of bed and curls up in my arm...little stinker!

Ha ha! With one cat snugged up against the back of my legs and another cuddled under my chin, my mornings are a bit stiff and clumsy, too!

What breed is she. She is a real sweetheart. I understand about pets and beds as I have 4 cats - 3 who will sleep on the bed and two who have been known to sleep on my shoulder, side, arm or stomach depending on their mood.

Lol! I feel your pain...erm...numbness! Our little dog, Baby, has the happy of laying across my ankle after the Darlin' Man leaves for work in the early EARLY morning hours. I wake up with a numb foot!

LOL PH---funny how the critters
take over!

Sarah-the cats do this on my daughter. I always smile when I go in her room in the morning because it looks like a cat pile up. By the way she is a canardly. We canardly list all the breeds in her as she is a mutt. The litter she came from had doberman looking pups, rottweilers and even fuzzy benji pups. So she is a Canardly for sure.

LOL Lamb-So funny how we all become so tolerant of our furry friends isn't it?

Jane-well said, well said! I do love this cutie.

You had me worried!!! She is so cute!!!! I think I am ready for another little doggie. I sure miss our Roxy. I absolutely loved seeing her snuggle with the boys.
