You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer…

I got asked a funny question the other day. Someone asked me if Grover had been to training classes.  That question was particularly funny, because at the time, Grover and Tillie were wandering around the backyard making googly-puppy-eyes at anyone that had a burger in their hands, looking like they hadn’t been fed in weeks.  [...]

Taking care of business…

I spent a good part of today trying to clean up my email inbox, responding to things I’d been putting off, responding to things I’d just forgotten about, deleting things I didn’t need to be keeping, and catching up on some of the jokes I hadn’t read yet… and I still have a lot to do!  [...]

I hear the secrets that you keep…

I learned a valuable lesson today, by making an ass of myself.  Best kind of lesson, right?? Today was a work from home day.  I had the front and back doors open most of the day, since it’s SO NICE out, which made the dogs nutty all day – there are lots of small children [...]

That’s why the lady is a tramp…

We recently (finally!!) got a DVR at home.  Yippee!!  AND… it’s HD!  So, in theory, we get to watch high def TV on our high def TV that has been in the living room for oh, 2 or 3 years now…  AND… I get to record all my geek girl shows like Good Eats and [...]

Hello again

So, I’ve been waiting to write until I had some pictures of stuff to share, but I keep waiting to take pictures until I make one more necklace, or finish one more project, blah blah blah.  Instead of waiting on all that, I figure I’ll just write.  Possibly every day.  About the random excitement that [...]

Happy New Year!

So, once again, Mother Nature tried to scheme against me.  The day I had planned to drive to Rock Springs (by myself) for part of my big Christmas vacation, it snowed.  A lot.  And the wind blew.  And the roads were bad.  Bah.  But… two days later, it was only windy!  And by that point, [...]

Been a while (again)…

  So much has happened since I last wrote.  My Grandpa John (my mom’s dad) passed away the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  It’s hard to even know what to say about it, as you can imagine.  It was sad.  He was so funny, talented, and bright, and he’ll be giving us all wonderful memories for the [...]

Always learning…

I don’t know how easy this is to read, but I learned something new, fascinating, and rather terrifying today from my Get Fuzzy calendar: “The oldest dog reliably recorded was Bluey, an Australian Cattle Dog who lived for 29 years and 5 months – almost 20 of those years spent at work.“ Miss Tillie is [...]

Sharing

Tina bought Lady a new bed the other day – one of these cute little $10.00 deals from Wal-Greens.  The theory was that the hardwood floors are tough on such a big dog’s joints, and having her own bed would keep her from sleeping on the sofa (after everyone else is in bed – oh [...]

New “pet”

I was sitting in my cubicle today when my friend Linda came in to tell me about her walk back from another building.  Someone stopped her, FLIPPED OUT over something she’d seen on the other side of the pond – too scared, in fact, to even cross the bridge.  The frightening thing she saw?
