Not that I had a choice, mind you – I wore my sneakers early in the morning, when the grass (which grows about two inches overnight) wept so badly as I trod through, my socks got soaked as well. Dammit. It could’ve been God’s retribution for my sins, which to my mind weren’t so bad, … Continue reading Never wear sandals to the dump.

On the Road Again…
I’m back on the road again after 2.5 years of non-road warrior status… and that’s not the only thing that’s non-status at this point. Hilton wants me to stay another 29 nights to maintain my diamond status, I’m squeaking by with United Silver, nothing on Southwest and god bless, the worst part is what this … Continue reading On the Road Again…
F😳ck off! Screamed the prairie dog.
I jumped a foot and uttered a curse word. I mean, I wasn’t prepared for that kind of reaction outta that cute little rolypoly creature. Given he was tubby and nicely groomed (didn’t appear to have fleas), it was a bit of a shocker. It all started when I decided I wanted to visit “Robert’s … Continue reading F😳ck off! Screamed the prairie dog.
104F (40C) is much, much worse in the UK than the US.
I can say that with authority as I started yesterday in London and ended in Los Angeles, and both had heat that high. Aside from it being a dry heat in LA, everything is air conditioned. We have this heat thing DOWN, windows open early, use the whole house fan to drain the attic of … Continue reading 104F (40C) is much, much worse in the UK than the US.
Well, we’re still married. And we shared a double kayak.
Miracles will never cease, as we’re not divorced. Oh, my god. I’d sworn never, ever to share a kayak with Beloved again, but along comes the opportunity on the River Thames. But only, ONLY in a double. Who can resist? No, seriously, I can do this! For a mere £65 each we were taken on … Continue reading Well, we’re still married. And we shared a double kayak.
Dismounting from an English bathtub should be an Olympic sport.
I know I’ve said it before, but honestly, it’s difficult to wrap your head around who thought those were a good idea. We’re staying in a lovely little AirBnB in Surrey. It’s a “maisonette” according to the advert, but not exactly because it’s only on one floor - a maisonette is generally a two story … Continue reading Dismounting from an English bathtub should be an Olympic sport.
Problems with jet lag…
When Beloved and I were first together (nearly 30 years ago), I had an admittedly difficult time containing what my father used to refer to as “nauseating exuberance”. Truth be told, I still have a hard time keeping a lid on it at times. It’s morning and I’m happy-happy-happy!! My mother has it and to … Continue reading Problems with jet lag…
Bison are beautiful, majestic animals but by gum, they crap like nothing I’ve ever seen.
MOUNTAINS of bison poo. Beloved took this photo. We’re at Yellowstone, Beloved and I. Miss M is having a vacation - splitting her three weeks between spa time at the GDA facility and another puppy raiser, who is graciously having her to stay. It’s a good thing too, because I wouldn’t want to have an … Continue reading Bison are beautiful, majestic animals but by gum, they crap like nothing I’ve ever seen.
The dog has a fever. It’s bad.
We all, actually, have a case of cabin fever. We had a bit of a scare nearly two weeks ago as one of the puppy’s classmates came down with a puppy illness after attending class. However, our puppy went to class with her, then to class then next week. Right after the second class we … Continue reading The dog has a fever. It’s bad.
Abby, born in 2007, was taken from her mother at six weeks, because her mother had mastitis. She was tiny and full of beans, and our existing cat, Piggy, kind of moaned and resigned himself to raising this… this… thing. Blondie and Abby as youngsters Piggster was a large tuxedo cat with extensive experience around … Continue reading Requiem
