Happy Valentines Day!

It’s Valentines Day- a day set aside for love. And we’re showing our love for God and country by hating each other’s guts.  Muslims are hated because they may be terrorists. People from or of Central and South American descent are hated because they’re probably here in this country illegally and taking jobs from Americans. … 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

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

Letting Go

As you know, we are soon moving to a new place in a new town. And as you know, Malachi died. I chose to bury Malachi in the yard beneath a tree here. It’s a tree where birds sing to us, and one of the homeless kitties often uses the tree to climb onto the … Continue reading

A Death in the Family

There are  a handful of people who, by my knowing them, have made life so much sweeter. My 7th grade language arts teacher, challenged me to reach beyond my abilities and compete in the school spelling bee. A former boss who gave me not one but two breaks in the work world. Friends who taught me … Continue reading

To Jerry and Annie!

Today my little brother Jerry and his long-time companion Annie are getting married. I couldn’t be there because of work. But I will be there in spirit. It’s comforting to see Jerry so happy. He and Annie have been together for 9 years. They met while Jerry was hurting from having lost his daughter in a tragic accident. … Continue reading

I’ve Got a Friend in Me

When I was in my 20s and still hoping there was a God out there, I read a magazine called Guideposts. Most of it was that mushy stuff that is supposed to be inspiring, but sounded like a bunch of wishful thinking to me. But I did read one story in that magazine that I’ve carried … Continue reading

Happy Gotcha Day Rumpy!

Nine years ago today I stopped to keep a furry dog from darting into the road and to help him find his way home. Little did I know his home was with me. Unlike with DeDe, ours has not been an easy relationship. His size, his high activity level, and his breed have forced me to be … Continue reading

Hey, God: When You’re Done Fixing Sporting Matches, I Could Use Your Help

During times of great stress, we humans tend to rethink our place in the Universe and whether or not there’s truly someone in charge. I’m doing that right now.  Is there really a benevolent overlord somewhere up in the sky pulling the strings that make us all dance and waiting for us to fuck up … Continue reading

My Dog is an Angel

I woke up this morning and my body didn’t want to move. I’d worked 65 hours in 6 days, and I felt it in every bone in my body. Right now we’re so short of staff that we can work all the overtime we want, and since there’s a chance there will be no budget … Continue reading
