Tiny Little Furry Monsters

I have created monsters! Tiny little furry monsters. When Rumpy had pneumonia, I started feeding him chicken to get him to eat. Now he insists on it. I mix it in with kibble and he eats all the chicken and most of the kibble. Otherwise he won’t eat his dog food. Now Bubba has decided … Continue reading

Don’t Listen to Podcasts? Time to #trypod

Do you listen to podcasts?  If you do, you’re one of 20% of the US population who do. If you don’t, I gotta tell ya, you’re really missing out. Podcasts started out as a fad that some of us oldsters thought would phase out, but it doesn’t appear to be the case. I got turned … Continue reading

Taking Comfort in Stock

We adults act like we can take anything life throws at us. And while most of us can, it doesn’t mean we’ll come out the other end unscathed. I vacuumed out my car yesterday afternoon for the first time since Rumpy’s diagnosis. Why did I wait two weeks? Maybe for the same reason I didn’t … Continue reading

Mascara and Coffee Creamer-What Do They Have in Common?

Happy Friday! I know you’re busy getting ready for the weekend. Here in Tennessee we’re doing our regular milk and bread run for the snow that may come Saturday night and melt pretty quickly Sunday. Ah, but can you have snow without milk and bread? I think not! I bought chocolate soymilk, just because. In my … Continue reading

Each year on March 8 we celebrate the “…social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.” (internationalwomensday.com/about) This year’s celebration seeks to draw attention to the contributions of women in the workplace. Women around the world have been asked to stay home from work today if they can to show … Continue reading

If Rumpy Went to Work for Me…

Friday I had a conversation with my dog. It went something like this: ME: Rumpy, I don’t want to go to work today. Why don’t you go for me? Rumpy: *blank stare*   But it got me thinking. What if I could send in a surrogate for me on days I’m just not feeling it? … Continue reading

All is Calm in Rumpydog Land

I want you to know that after I wrote that last blog post, Rumpy decided he now DOES want to be around me. So we’re usually in the same room. It’s comforting for me; I hope it is for him as well.   The Rumpster seems to have rallied lately. Yesterday he actually pulled me up … Continue reading

A Weekend with Rumpy

Rumpy will not stay in the same room with me. At first I thought it was the temp of the room, because the living room tends to be warmer than the bedroom. But this weekend I noticed when I entered the room where he lay, he’d soon get up and move to the other room. … Continue reading

Oscars? Whatever…

Tonight is the annual Academy Awards ceremony, the biggest and most prestigious awards ceremony where the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognizes its’ own. So what! Oh, I know that many of you are watching to not only see who wins an award, but what is worn by whom, and who says what … Continue reading

Conservatives, Liberals, and the Rest of Us

When I was a little girl I was told that if I just worked hard, I’d be rewarded for my efforts. I’ll bet you learned that lesson too. Little did we know it was all bullshit.  We worked harder and harder, but our wages didn’t match the cost of living, so we were losing. Then … Continue reading
