About Me

My photo

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!

Happy birthday, Daddy...

Happy birthday, Daddy!  My dad would be 83 today.  I can’t imagine it, but I sure wish he were still around.  He would love the technology.  Daddy was a computer geek back in the old days – PCs were just becoming affordable when he passed away in 1985.  And the internet – he would have been a serious driver on the information superhighway.  This is the man who loved to read these six things – and in this order of importance:  1) Reader’s Digest; 2) the encyclopaedia; 3) the Bible; 4) the dictionary; 5) Chariots of the Gods; and 6) Project Blue Book.  He was once persuaded to read a biography of Johnny Cash but later said that he could have gotten the same information from the Funk & Wagnalls.  He would have been out of his mind with glee at the sheer amount of information available at his fingertips.  I can see it now: he’d be scouring the news for UFO sightings, emailing jokes to all of his cronies, having Our Daily Bread delivered to his inbox and contributing regularly to keep Wikipedia in business.  He’d probably even have a blog wherein he would debate whether or not Ezekiel’s wheel of fire in the sky was actually a UFO of biblical proportions.  And I’d be his number one follower.
