Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

I'm so upset...

And it's silly, really.  See this little devotional flip calendar?  Well, I've had it since I was in high school and I look at it every day.  I usually put it in a spot that it will catch my attention.  After I moved the office home, I ran out of space on my desk and moved it to the laundry closet.  I do laundry every day, so I thought, good spot for it there on top of the dryer.  Wrong...  I just went to put laundry in the dryer only to discover that the wildly vibrating washing machine had knocked a bin of fabric over onto the spray bottle of wrinkle relaxer and it leaked out all over the dryer.  My little calendar absorbed almost all of the liquid!  I've had it for at least 35 years and I know I will never find another one.  The first thing I did after I cleaned up the mess was get online to look for the Ladies Home Bible League in South Holland, Illinois.  Nothing.  Then I searched for devotional flip calendar.  Nothing.  I feel like crying.  Isn't that dumb?

  1. Ahhh....it's not dumb. It's something that meant alot to you and was a "ritual" that you enjoyed. Cry a few tears and then go eat some chocolate. That will make you feel better.

  2. That's not dumb at all. I'm so sorry. You were so attached to it and it's upsetting. It looks like it was such a cool little devotional. I know that there's the perfect new devotional just waiting for you to find it!
