I do, my mom used them in my hair all the time as a child. Mine were brown.

I actually had a friend ask where she could get them for her daughter's hair. I drew her a picture and asked her if she remembered what they were called. Between us we eventually remembered spoolies. Glad they can still be found.

I just want to interject my 2 bits about Lyme. I frankly did not think about it effecting the animal population. I am just now feeling more" normal" after 4 yrs. of having contracted Lyme. What remains at this point is chronic fatigue. I feel very sorry for everyone that's had it.

I use chicken wire also. Hope you can deter the little buggers.

I'm an RN and have never heard of a CNA giving meds.

Frankly, I never liked dispensing meds. In MA aides could, I don't know about other states. It was supposedly done under a nurses license. Just another cost saving measure for the facility.

Of course you were "toast" if anything went wrong. Fired on the spot and not to be seen again.

I don't want to start a political topic but what also concerns me is the folks that are doing the work where English is not their primary language and can't read the med prodigal re: right route, right date, right dose, right person and so on.

I was a CNA, now retired, I started later in life. In my 50's at the time. Frankly. looking back I don't know how I did it. Very physically demanding, transfering, shifting folks, hoyer lifts, feeding, dressing, toileting, meds, it's definitely not just a companionship job. I met many terrific people, that I cared a great deal about. It has it's ups and downs like any job.

The part I was not prepared for was the mental aspect. The dementia, the behaviors, the sadness and lonely feeling folks had because their families would not visit, and you yourself could not spend enough time with everyone.

I found, despite the trainers saying you were an important element in having things run smoothly, that was not the case in actuality. Supervisors acted as if you were second class citizens that were disposable, and insignificant.

I worked in assisted living complexes as well as private agencies. I will be most interested in reading other's replies.

Could they, in fact, have been the victims of some jerks destroying the site?

Frankly, that was my first thought, either way it's sad.

I had to google hat elastic, I didn't know what it was. I remember now. Sue I love all your pieces. I personally can not have enough bookmarks. Avid readers in this household. It's like pens, you never have one handy so I have many in every room.

Folks will be thrilled to have them accompany a card.
