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

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

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

When You’re Told Your Dog is Dying…

Don’t worry, I’m not offended that you won’t read this bog post. This one is for those who who will go through this as some point, and need to know there is someone out there who understands.  First you sit on the sofa and cry. Be prepared to go through an entire box of tissues. You make a … Continue reading

I Can Really Go After Shit…

I’ve been tweaking my resume, and there’s a skill I possess that I’m not quite sure how to address. I’m good at dealing with shit.  I can scoop it, shovel it, pick it up outside, pick it up inside, remove and replace the diaper within which it resides, regularly clean the receptacles that receive it, clean practically … Continue reading

The Burden of Entitlement

I walk during my lunch break at work.  Lately I’ve taken to walking the part of The Trail of Tears that runs in downtown Nashville. A portion of that trail is two blocks away from the high-rise named for the president who forced their march. I try to get in touch with what it must have been … Continue reading

In Talking With a Polar Bear…

I’ve been doing some serious soul-searching. I’ve never been a trusting sort, and Tuesday reminded me yet again that people are not to be trusted. That said, I no longer have it in me to fight. If you do, more power to you. Me, I’m done. Instead I’m going to enjoy my days. After all, … Continue reading

All Things Cat

Cats are in the news this weekend.  First, Bubba Cat had his turn at the vet, and his bloodwork results were upsetting. He, too, has hyperthyroidism. To be honest, I hadn’t considered hyperthyroidism with Bubba because he hasn’t been as ravenous as Junior was when first diagnosed. But he does show other symptoms, such as weight … Continue reading

Vegans Have a Stinky Secret!

Vegans look so happy, so healthy, and so content in photos.  But even those of us who refuse to eat anything with a face have our dirty little secrets. What is so rotten about vegan eating? It stinks! OK, so not veganism, but the gas you get from all those healthy veggies and beans does! At least, … Continue reading
