I keep seeing posts talking about PCE and I'm wondering what that means.  Can I buy a clue?
 
Thanks for being here.

You are cute. We'll sell you a clue for little cost!

The PCE is the Pink Cloud Express. It is our imaginary airline that we have the ability to fire up and fly to wherever someone is in need of our support. Joyce is usually the captain, but any of us (even my little dog Tavish sometimes flies!) can pinch hit whenver needed. We usually all jump aboard it the last minute, wearing all kinds of pink layers, and often with a pink feather boa draped around our necks. Those pink boas often shed a couple feathers...so if you are going in for surgery or just need to have us there in mental support, we have been known to lose a feather or two along the way. We tend to be noisy and take up a lot of room, so tell your doctors to make room for us in there with you!

Whenever you need us to be there in spirit, just let us know!

Great explanation, Lori. I didn't want to attempt it. The concept is great, but I am just not a "visual" person so it is kind of hard for me to describe a vision. LOL. It's 3 am and I am not real coherent. The dogs were on a raccoon hunt but they went back to sleep leaving DH and I up having coffee. Coffee does not keep me awake so I will go back to bed and sleep again. Such sweet togetherness in retirement. He has been retired now for two weeks and so far so good. Hugs to all, MK

Yes our PCE is always ready to go at a moments notice, I had alot of women at my surgery a week ago. We like to get a little silly here, and there are lots of initials we use too dont be afraid to ask.

My dogs hate the racoons too, be careful they are very mean I would hate for your schnauzers to get bitten. Mine like to chase the squirles and birds that come into the yard. My youngest wants so badly to catch a bird but I don't think it will ever happen.

Happy retirement to the two of you, it sounds wonderful!

Ruby, I am so sorry. I save this explanation and always mean to post it now and then to let all our new members know what PCE is all about.  Please forgive me. It usually takes someone to ask before I remember I am over due to explain....at least as best as you can explain an imaginary pink plane. tee hee. PCE came about very slowly. We started out in a big pink bus. Now close your eyes and see that! Then it seemed like everyone was do at important things on the same day, and needed us. Now even my imagination will not enable a bus to get to the N. E., Texas, and Ohio all in a matter of one hour. I was about to scrap the whole thing because some thought it was silly. Then there was the post that changed my mind. We had one of our ladies tell us how she closed her eyes and imagined us all there and it helped so much. She did not feel alone and she was surrounded by people who had been there or were going to be. Another actually told the surgical team to watch out for us! They thought she was overdosed with the happy juice. Tee hee. This called for a little more thinking, now if you know me that is not my strong point. Took me a bit of thought and the next thing you know I decided there is only one way to get to all these places in a hour, and then only with imagination running the engine. That was how the Pink Cloud Express was born. Next came a chip in with imagination as to what we ate and wore. We even have instruments and march down the hall of the hospitals. The funniest thing was in LV Sara actually handed me a drum. That was when the whole group found out I had never touched a drum in my life except my sons, when I moved it to clean. But reality has nothing to do with our mission. We are there with what ever musical instrument you want to play or not, with our pink boots and boas and march into surgery to chase that "I am facing this alone" feeling away. That is why people who need PCE request during the week of need. Women work well under pressure. Give us to much time and we really do mess up. If I am not home, and do not answer one of the other ladies will usually take over. We have even had a four legged steward. Tavish was a huge help. Anyone that is a member can feel free to post any ideas and certainly to jump on board. New fliers have a membership dues to pay,when showing up for their first flight..Bet you can guess. A plane full of ladies........ LOL of course the answer could only be chocolate. tee hee. This can only be signed by the idiot known as Capt. Lemon..... May we welcome you aboard?

I've got the coffee and tea a'cookin' , when did you say your arrival time is?  I could use some help around here for sure, but I'm not sure about the drumming..... is it theraputic native healing drums? That might actually work for me.  I'm not sure what else will at this point.  :-)

I should have told you the story about the drum. It started out when we had something to celebrate I would post asking everyone if they could hear that noise....It was the sound of my drum being drug out of the closet to celebrate someones good news. People that lived near or were very close to one of the girls that had something done, would post for me to polish my drum and get ready to celebrate. Then it progressed, when we started with a bus and the next thing you know we had a kazoo and tamborine and so on until we had a full band. No one actually had these instruments. Everyone picked an instrument and we did our fantacy parade down the halls of the hospital to make our ladies smile. There is nothing like knowing you are not alone and people care and throw a smile in with silly stuff and its one of the best medicines in the world. Disaster struck when we went to LV for a meeting( a real one) real instruments were given out and I was actually given a drum to play. I have to tell you my imagination can run amuck but not enough to enable me to actually play my drum. Believe me, my drum playing could be called a lot of things but theraputic healing is not on the name calling list. LOL I still have my drum and if I need a smile I look at it and think how thoughtful it was and its a gift I will never forget. The magic of smiles are they do go around and come back and put themselves on your face. Some people think we are silly, and frankly after what most of us have been through, not many of us worry about that. The wonderful thing about posts are you do not have to read them. So if we get silly and one person smiles, it was worth the effort. Hope I have caught you up on all of our smiley antics.

Ruby....just for the record, the PCE does not usually make house calls to help with windows or floors. SHower stalls too. Anything else, we'll be there just let us know!

And Tavish is my little dog, perched on my lap as we speak, who helps as steward from time to time. I think he was grounded for a while last year while recuperating from ACL surgery, but now he is ready to go! He does not do so well with pink boas though, but I think he'll tolerate a bandana scarf or a little fleece jacket in winter.

So whenever you are having a procedure, surgery, chemo...or just an appointment where you need our support, just let us know and you'll be amazed how quickly we can get there!
L&H,
Lori
