More From Rumpy

I am now assigned to work from home. It’s great to get to be here with Rumpy and the kitties more, even if I’m working. Especially now. Rumpy has taken a turn for the worse. He still eats well and never says no when I offer to take him outside, but his breathing continues to … Continue reading

What is National Pet Day?

And we have yet another day to celebrate the non-human companions that share our lives. Continue reading

You Must Be Feeling Better?

I have been upfront and open about Rumpy’s condition: he has a tumor at the base of his heart that has grown. He has a lypoma beneath the muscle on a hind leg that is not worth removing because he also has difficulty breathing due to laryngeal paralysis. It was most likely the lar-par that led … Continue reading

Welcome to S-Town, Not Unlike My Home Town

So what did I do this past weekend? I binge listened to S-Town. S-Town is the latest podcast from the folks that bring you This American Life and Serial. S-Town, short for Shit Town, is how series protagonist John B. McLemore refers to his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama. I loved it, and I’m not the … Continue reading

Suck it Up, Buttercup!

I’ve been hesitant to write. Not because I don’t know what to say, but because my dog is dying and I don’t want to talk about that publicly too much. I know you’re animal lovers and that you understand. But stoicism is the message we’ve been given all our lives; you don’t grieve animals. You bury them and move on. And … Continue reading

Is Independent Journalism at Risk?

With all these accusations lately of fake news, activist journalism, and a president who encourages his base to hate on the “liberal media,” journalists have really had it rough. Sometimes it makes ya wonder what you can believe anymore. Is journalism still independent? Here’s one story about journalism at risk. This is Jacqui Helbert. Jacqui was a … Continue reading

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
