About Me

Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

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.

Peter the Cat...

Peter the Cat...
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 - the Cat Who Came From Somewhere Else...
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!

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!

Is silence really golden?


I’ve been reading the recent news articles about Clarence Thomas and his tenure as a Supreme.  I really can’t think of anything good to say about him – or anything bad.  The problem is he doesn’t do anything.  Or say anything.  Unless he’s taking the proverb about opening one’s mouth and proving oneself a fool to heart.  I remember listening to his confirmation hearings on NPR – and all that flap about Anita Hill.  My friend Beverly said that Ms. Hill was just mad because Mr. Thomas dumped her for a white woman.  There may have been some truth in that, but you'd think that someone who went through such personally revealing confirmation hearings would work harder at proving himself worthy of his appointment to the Court.  Just saying.
