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 - 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!

The land of hold...

Hold.  What a concept – I mean, there’s hold with silence, hold with an info-mercial, hold with elevator muzak, hold with computer generated techno-pop, hold with that annoying your call may be monitored for quality assurance message, and then there’s the IRS.  Thank God they switched from the Sleeping Beauty Waltz to this new tune – but it’s the same few bars that repeat over and over again.  I’d like to propose a federal law mandating that all individuals on hold for a particular corporation or government entity may talk to one another for entertainment and mutual sharing of information while they are waiting.  Just think of how many Microsoft tech support problems could be solved by people who know the answer that other people are calling for, leaving the company’s tech experts free to answer the really technical questions – or not.  The same could be said for tax support questions.  And think of all the fun people you might meet.  Instead of matches made in heaven, or match.com – we’d have matches made on hold.  Then women could actually hold out for a hero.  Just saying.
