Why I’m Not on the List of Fun People to Invite to Parties

Today is my birthday, and as many of us older folk do on our birthdays, I have looked within and taken inventory of myself. This is what I’ve come up with this year. I tend to rub people the wrong way.  Part of that is me, I know. I grew up being the recipient of many hurtful comments about … Continue reading

They’re Just Weeds

It’s spring, and after a harsh winter, Nature blesses us with the beauty of flowers. But we don’t like them. They are too small. They’re not in the right place. They’re weeds! Yuck! So we pull them up. We spray weed killer on them. We fertilize our lawns with chemicals that seep into our ground … Continue reading

Happy Whatever it is You’re Celebrating Today!

Chag Sameach to my Jewish friends, and Happy Easter to my Christian ones! No celebrating in this household. The state of Florida does not recognize either as a state holiday, so I’ll be at work. Not that I’d be celebrating anyway. No egg hunting here. No sunrise services. No Seder. No money spent on the … Continue reading

Wishing You the Luck ‘O the Irish!

Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone!  Today we celebrate the Irish, a people about whom Sigmund Freud said, “This is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever.” Um, I’m not sure why, but I think I like it! No time to write a post for Tuesday True Confessions. I may have to … Continue reading

That Bitch is Crazy!

Yesterday I had my FOURTH ATT repair technician out to my home, after I tweeted yet another problem I was having with my service. I’ve only had service with this company for four months, and it still isn’t consistently working properly. The latest tech let me know that I am what they call a “frequent … Continue reading

Tuesday True Confessions: I Hate Fashion

I have hidden my entire life. Even when in plain view, I hid behind others who were more attractive- like Rumpy. I hide behind my ability to manipulate a conversation. Hell, I can manipulate an entire room! I’m that good. But few people really know me. It’s time that changed. So I’m going to start … Continue reading

Choosing My Battles and Moving On

March 11th is Humane Lobby Day in Tallahassee, Florida. It’s an opportunity for ordinary folks like me to talk to my elected officials about my stance on legislation impacting animals. I’m not going to attend. I know! I know! If I wasn’t going to go, why did I make such a big stink about how I was … Continue reading

Happy National Love Your Pet Day? WTF?

February 20th is Love Your Pet Day! I know, right? Like we need a day to remind us to love our companion animals? Well apparently SOMEONE thought you weren’t showing enough love to your pets, because Love Your Pet Day was set aside to, “remind pet owners to set aside time each day to appreciate and celebrate … Continue reading

It’s OK- My Dog is Friendly!

I hate those words. They always seem to come from a dog owner that means well, but doesn’t think past their own nose. Sure, your dog is cute, and happy, and obeys ALL of your commands, right? No. Your dog never comes when you call him or her away from me. But it’s OK, because … Continue reading

Give Some Love to Your Dog

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and nothing tells your dog you love him or her like spending lots of money at the pet store. In case you didn’t pick up on that, I’m being facetious. Let’s be real, here. Your dog could care less that it’s Valentine’s Day. So, no, I’m not going to publish any … Continue reading
