Gigi Question

Do we know if Gigi goes to church of the elderly with the rest of the borg?  Does she go to her own church? I ask because I swear I saw her this morning.

I think she has her own church. 

But it is odd that a "church" so dedicated to the "elderly" doesn't include the one elderly person in the family.

Ok so I totally think I saw her at the chapel this morning  after Mass. The next service was coming in.  This makes 3 Maxwell sightings since moving to the area.

A Catholic chapel?

Yeah - if so, that was NOT Gigi.  Fairly certain the Maxborg would have cut off all contact long ago if she were Catholic.

The church they do is in, either a nursing home or retirement home or some combo. If Gigi actually lived there she might go. But she doesn't need to, so she goes where she sees fit. Go Gigi

Military chapels are all-faith chapels :) Our mass is sandwiched in between two protestant services.

She goes to the Protestant service at Fort Leavenworth, and has done for a long time, according to this:

Incidentally, the church is the same church where Nathan and Melanie got married and where Rex's funeral was.

I think the service she attends is the Traditional Protestant one. I assume that translates as "evangelical, no rock music", since there's also a contemporary worship and Episcopal service offered at the other chapels there.

That is awesome intel. Yes. I saw her.  Trad Protestant isn't in that chapel currently due to rennovations - cleaning up bat poop so it's been moved the newer chapel where Sunday Mass is.  

Wow, 2 Maxwell int he wild sightings in 6 months. (Ok the LV isn't all that big but still)

All three kittens were there as was the huscat.  I will be on the lookout now for future Gigi sightings.  Oh and I forgot I saw Joe at the Orange Big Box Store too.  It's been a thrilling 6 months.

I didn't realize Leavenworth was that small.

It is pretty small.  No Target, just Walmart and Dollar General.  Or maybe I'm fundy too.  (I don't think so)

Oh, me either!  I just looked it up and it only has 30,000 people. I thought it was much bigger.

Hi! Enjoy your time in Leavenworth!

Can I ask a favor? How is the downtown looking, there? Poor Sarah might have alluded to a coffee shop on the Main Street but naturally any downtown rebirth wouldn’t be An Approved Topic for what she has to write about.

@MamaJunebug,  I'll bet it looks different from what it did when my uncle was at Ft Leavenworth.  I think this was before he went to Vietnam, but it might have been after and after the hitch at the Pentagon.  Whatever, it was probably more than 50 years ago.

Right! So, the usual specialty shops, cafes, antique malls and about 50% empty storefronts?  Many small towns are working on some kind of renewal. I just wonder if the Maxspinsters have someplace to walk around and window-Shop.

IOW, without half a dozen toddlers along. .

There are two coffee shops in the downtown area. One is very liberal, trendy and hip -- I doubt they go there. There is another one a block off the main downtown strip that I believe has a Christian vibe to it.  There is also a tea shop.  

At any rate I am happy to do local research for the hive if needed.

So Gigi goes to an actual service. Wonder what she really thinks about her daughter and SIL?

Yeah. I’d love to hear her thoughts on how she really isn’t a Christian, as the Maxhellions rejoice in being “second generation” Christians.

I've seen Birdman of Alcatraz* too many times. This struck me funny.

I know, it's a town, and a base (my sister-in-law lived there many years ago when her dad was stationed there), and I mean no offense. But I always think of the prison first.

*Despite the title, it's mostly set in the penitentiary in Leavenworth.

My relatives who lived there said, “Yes, we served our time!” And then they’d say how many years.  Always good for an ice breaker. But they enjoyed it — the town — and I have fond-enough memories of visits there. 

And that is probably the reason Stevovah and his Terifying acolyte anger me so much. Leave Leavenworth alone!

Just a history note: back in the day, the vacant lot across from the Patch Community Center on Pope Avenue had a dedicated Catholic Church--St. Ignatius.  We didn't have to share back then.  It burned down in December 2001 (has it really been that long ago?).  Now we're just retirees, and only head up there when we have problems with the paperwork and to visit the Munson pharmacy.

I myself have missed sightings by just a hair, when they go to the Legends.  Darn.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
