Idiots and Fireworks: A Love Story

And so it begins.  Sunday afternoon someone in this neighborhood shot off firecrackers. One. At. A. Time. All. After. Noon. Long. It was VERY annoying, but it was hot so I stayed inside and cranked up the radio. July 4th should be interesting this year. There are lots of dogs in this neighborhood living outside … Continue reading

Four more days until….

Oh Dog! Today for Christmas I’m sharing a song I wrote several years ago. It’s sung to the tune of White Christmas, written by Irving Berlin. . I’m dreaming of a snow-covered landscape Just like past winters don’t ya know, when it didn’t stop snowing, No grass was showing, The ground was frozen to the core. I’m … Continue reading

Only 6 More Days Until…

Time for a couple of weeks’ worth of warm and fuzzies. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!    Christmas, Christmas time is near, Time for toys and time for cheer. We’ve been good, but we can’t last, Hurry Christmas, Hurry fast. Want a plane that loops the loop, Me, I want a Hula-Hoop. We can hardly … Continue reading

What to Give a Child in Need

Happy Thanksgiving! While many of us Americans will be gathering ’round with family and friends sharing a huge meal and lots of gratitude, we’ll also be planning our bargain shopping strategies for this weekend.   Perhaps while you’re out and about you’ll want to pick up some items to give for a child in need. The holiday … Continue reading

For those of you who will spend the next two months in a euphoric stupor of holiday magic, this post is not for you. Move along, please. As for the rest of you, show of hands. How … Continue reading

Memorial Day: How and Why We Remember

Monday is Memorial Day in the United States. It’s a holiday that signifies for many of us the beginning of summer. Schools are either already out or are soon to be for the summer break. Workers are planning their summer vacations. The weekend is marked with sales, especially at home improvement outlets, as this weekend … Continue reading

Happy Whatever it is You’re Celebrating Today!

Chag Sameach to my Jewish friends, and Happy Easter to my Christian ones! No celebrating in this household. The state of Florida does not recognize either as a state holiday, so I’ll be at work. Not that I’d be celebrating anyway. No egg hunting here. No sunrise services. No Seder. No money spent on the … Continue reading

Give Some Love to Your Dog

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and nothing tells your dog you love him or her like spending lots of money at the pet store. In case you didn’t pick up on that, I’m being facetious. Let’s be real, here. Your dog could care less that it’s Valentine’s Day. So, no, I’m not going to publish any … Continue reading

Gift-Giving on the Cheap…. and a Giveaway!

Let’s face it, advertisers have us all convinced that we show how much we love our family and friends by how much we spend on them. Heck, they’ve even convinced us we show the same love to our companion animals! But, the truth is, our companion animals could care less about much of the stuff we buy … Continue reading

Dear Santa: Please Send Kyjen Toys!

Dear Santa: Christmas is coming, and I can hardly wait! Could you please send me some Kyjen toys this year? I LOVE Kyjen toys! They make toys that are fun, but also require some thought. The Hide-a-Squirrel is my favorite! I have to look, but I always find that squeaky squirrel. Of course, I also like … Continue reading
