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 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!

A thing of the past?

I read a funny article today.  Apparently the makers of Guitar Hero are discontinuing their product.  It seems that the young generation is not as enthralled with air guitar as we were thirty or so years ago.  In fact, the only way some of these kids have even heard of rock and roll greats is by playing this video game.  How is that even possible?  Can today’s youth not know who Eric Clapton is?  AC/DC?  Foreigner?  The Beatles?  Not that I have occasion to play Guitar Hero, but it sure looks like fun.  And yes, I’ll admit, I played my fair share of air guitar (complete with wild headbanging) back in the day.  Hard to imagine, but I was well acquainted with Boston, Yes, Aerosmith, Heart and Led Zep.  I wanted to be Ann Wilson.  Right now I am probably the only person within a five mile radius who even knows who Yngvwe Malmsteen is.  Sad, but true.  The history of rock and roll should be a required course in high school.  Or college.  Especially college.  Of course, I am so old and demented that I have never heard the music of the Black Eyed Peas, Lil Wayne or, dare I say it, Lady Gaga.  And I have no desire to – not as long as I have my ZZTop CD and all those rock and roll classics on my iPod.  I mean, I may like old music, but there’s no reason not to utilize new technology.
