from seattle with love

First off…I am so glad to be here in the wonderous northwest!  I could just pinch myself, (it would be more than an inch) because I feel like I have landed in Mayberry. It has been a very trying year. We found out in January 08 that my husband Rick has terminal cancer. Stage 4 melanoma with brain metastes. He is 52 years young and does not smoke, drink coffee, drink alcohol..his only vices are chocolate cake and television. So you could imagine our shock and horror. It was like someone had kicked me in the stomach and at times I will turn around too quick and there is that feeling again. I have all the faith that God has us under his arm right now, and I am feeling pretty positive. It has been the biggest blessing to move to Seattle where people actually care about you. My neighbors from ACROSS the street came over to introduce themselves…I thought that was very cool. I grew up in a small town “Linden” where people care too, so I really feel like I am home. And we all know home is where the heart is.    xoxo

    Lola,

    It’s really great to have you here in the great NW. I have been here for just 3 years. I came from back east (DC area) and found the same thing. I now live on Whidbey Island and just don’t think I want to ever leave. This is the most beatiful place with the most beautiful people. You will fit in WONDERFULLY!!!!

    Howdie Lola,

    It’s been nice talking with you. Sorry about your husband. As I told you today my mom is dying of cancer. Don’t know how long she will be around. She will be 64 in Feb. Life throws all kinds of obsticles at us. Anyway…..

    It’s so great to have you at the WOLF here in the Pacific Northwest and to listen to you on the radio. You have such a charm to you that is unlike any other that I have ever heard on the radio. I don’t know how much effort you put into your show but it sure seems so natural for you. (I’m sure you put a lot of thought into it though) I feel the true sincere heart felt feelings you radiate when you read something to us or when you pick a song for us to listen to. It’s a powerful thing Miss Lola! :-) You bring the sunshine out even on a cloudy day. I look forward to hearing your voice on my radio. Thank you for making me smile and laugh with your quarkyness and unique style. Quarkyness…hmmm..is that a word? Whatever it is… just keep doing what you’re doing. It’s working. I’m a pretty good judge of things so I think it’s pretty safe to say that there are probably thousands of people that feel the same way I do. Yee-Haw!! Country On Cowgirl!!

    I have tried to find the story you read on air a few days ago about the little boy and the birds (angels). I would like the entire story in writing – is that possible? Thank you, Lynda

    Lola,
    I feel so blessed to listen to you in the afternoons. I do school online, and being that I am 16 with ADD, I need someone thats inspirational yet fun at the same time. You are all that and more. You keep me listening every moment. I have picked up that saying “bring it on trucker” and all my friends get a kick out of it! I just want to say that your husband and son are blessed to have a woman like you in their lives. You have taken a hard hit, and I pray that your husband turns out okay with a clean bill of health! Keep doing your thing on the radio, im HOOKED! God bless you always!

    Miss Lola,

    In one way I hope you are the same Lola M from Stockton, or should I say ex-Katm dj…and I hope it’s not! I have read your blogs and my heart is hurting for you. I don’t know if you remember me, but we ran into each other at various events and better known for our encounter at “Fat cat” modesto. You have been on my mind lately and I finely got on laptop to see if I could see what you were up to. Never even imagined you moved north and are suffering with such sorrow and grief.
    Well if this isn’t ‘that’ Lola, my thoughts are with you and your son, and if you ARE ‘that’ Lola, drop me a line. Ok then…I hope it IS you and I hear back from you soon. God Bless you Lola Montgomery…whoever you are?!?! :)

    P.S. i love your show and the wolf is my favorite country station I listen to it all the time.

  8. Marisa Says:

    Can you please email me a copy of the letter you read about the numerous coffee cups where everyone picked the fancy ones leaving the used, chipped ugly ones behind, yet still fancied after someone else’s cup. Focusing on the exterior rather than what was inside the cup. It was a great story with great meaning I would like to share with others.
    I heard it read on the radio by you I believe 8/20/09.
    Thank you in advance.
