People Let Me Tell You About My Best Friend

Harry Nilsson wrote a song about friendship called, appropriately, Best Friend: People let me tell you ’bout my best friend, He’s a warm hearted person who’ll love me till the end. People let me tell you bout my best friend, He’s a one boy cuddly toy, my up, my down, my pride and joy. ¬†People … Continue reading

Monday at Jelly Roll Dog Park- A Review

Kid’s books are aplenty, and these days, they’re often about animals. Dogs and kids are usually a lucrative combination. So here we have writer Jennifer Schreiber using dogs to teach us how to handle bullying in her children’s book, Monday at Jelly Roll Dog Park. What did I think of the book? I don’t like … Continue reading

The Joy of Non-Judgmentalism

I’ve just gotten home from a law enforcement assist. A caregiver is going to jail, and I was needed to watch a young child until a relative could come pick him up. As we waited together in the parking lot of my office building, the little one asked me to hold him, and I did. We talked about the dark … Continue reading

As Long as Animals are in Prison, It’s OK. Otherwise, Let’s Kill ’em.

One of my duties as a bitter old crone is to tell you people how fucking stupid you are.  For instance, let me introduce you to Bruiser Bear, an inmate at the animal prison known affectionately as Single Vision, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit endangered species educational wildlife facility located in Melrose, Florida. This … Continue reading

I just checked my blog and saw in the notifications that today is my 4th anniversary as a blogger. Well, how about that? I should be having a huge celebration! An amazing giveaway! There should be cookies with big 4s painted on them with peanut butter! So what am I doing? Hiding from the vacuum … Continue reading

I Think I May Be in Trouble!

My life is in peril. With my working so much lately, I’m hardly home. When I am home, I’m still working. Or sleeping. Or (heaven forbid) walking the dog. The feline contingency has decided enough is enough. I’ve noticed lately the looks of disdain and of downright anger. Even Rumpy is fearful of what may … Continue reading

What I Did for Love…. of Drugs

There are people in my life that I love, and there were some men in my life that I really loved…. IF ya know what I mean. But I have never loved anyone as much as a drug addict loves drugs. To an addict, the drug is more important than anyone or anything else in … Continue reading

It’s Bravo! and Away We Go!

So here in the Gulf Coast region, it’s time everyone should have their emergency preparedness kits and plans in place. ¬†In areas where hurricanes are always a possibility, one must be ready to either stay or go at short notice. One thing I’ve always struggled with when planning is food. Having extra on hand if … Continue reading

Interview Questions- What I REALLY Want to Say

I hate job interviews.  All those hypothetical questions. All those phony answers. I know, employers want a good fit for their organization. It’s not enough to be competent in doing the job. They want to know if I’ll be a team player. Can I get along with others? Can I suck up to the powers that … Continue reading
