Rest in Peace June Buggie

My little ranter has died. Two weeks ago we were at the vet because he wasn’t eating. They drew blood from his jugular and felt nothing unusual in his neck. The blood work looked good. Last week we were back because he was worse. The tumor had grown rapidly, because now it could be felt. … Continue reading

Dear Rumpy…

Dear Rumpy, It’s hard to believe it ‘s been one month since you died. I am still not used to waking and not having to immediately go outside, or not needing to hurry home so you can pee. I don’t spend much time outside in the yard anymore. Last week I mowed the yard and saw the … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

Today I took June Buggie back to the vet because he has not gotten any better. The vet found a tumor on his neck beneath his right ear. The tumor is huge- about the size of a golf ball. It’s not observable because it’s located deep. The vet said that she’s not sure if removal … Continue reading

Please Keep Buggie in Your Thoughts

June Buggie is not well. Since Rumpy’s death, June Buggie has been acting sick. At first I thought he was mourning, but he hasn’t snapped out of it. So today we went to the vet. I showed her his back where he fur fell out last week after I applied Revolution. I told her about … Continue reading

Dot-to-Dot for Adults?

Let me start by saying I’m reviewing a product provided by Media Masters Publicity. The review, however, is not influenced by them in any way and is totally my own. Thunder Bay Press has published a book of dot-to-dots for adults. You remember dot-to-dots, right? You start at one and trace from number to number … Continue reading

Dear Paul…

Dear Paul, We’ve never met, but I feel like I know you. You see, my office extension used to be your work number. I know this because even though this number has been assigned to me for a year now, I still get calls for you on a regular basis. You’d be amazed how much I … Continue reading

“We’re All Sick of It”

I donate blood through the American Red Cross. You can tell when it’s time to give again because they bug the shit out of me with daily calls and emails until I sign up to give. They caught me this weekend and convinced me to donate at a local blood drive that was held yesterday. … Continue reading

Walking Around in Circles

I woke up Wednesday morning at 3 am and began the countdown. Seven hours left, then six, then three, then one… Each hour I committed to be present for Rumpy. No nose stuck in a laptop or phone. No busy work. I talked to him. I reminded him of the day we met. How after it … Continue reading

A Fond Farewell from Rumpy

Dear friends, I have fought the good fight, but I told Jen I am tired and ready to go. I am sad to say good-bye to Jen and to the kitties- even June Buggie. And I am sad to say good-bye to you. But my body is tired, and no amount of sleep or cookies makes me … Continue reading

It’s All Her Fault!

While shopping Thursday I heard a store clerk tell a customer that Elizabeth Thomas, the 15-year-old TN girl abducted by school teacher Tad Cummins, was found with Cummins in a cabin in northern California. Then the clerk commented that of course Elizabeth went willingly. I am flabbergasted that so many people see nothing wrong here. They say … Continue reading
