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!

Entry level...

is something we've all experienced at one time or another.  It's especially excruciating right after college graduation when you are seemingly ready to take on the world only to be told that you have no experience and aren't even qualified for an entry-level position.  Talk about having your bubble burst.  Been there, done that.  Maybe that's why the title of this movie caught my eye on Netflix the other night - or maybe it's because it has both D.B. Sweeney and Kurtwood Smith in it.  At any rate, it was pretty good.  Sweeney plays a chef whose restaurant closes due to circumstances beyond his control and he is forced back into the job market.  He has made up his mind that he wants nothing more to do with being a chef or the restaurant business and his unemployment counselor (hilarious!) promptly informs him that he is not qualified for anything else in the job market other than an entry-level position.  Predictably, he goes on about a million job interviews, but along the way he makes friends with a group of people who are in the same boat.  Smith plays a homeless gourmand living on a park bench near Sweeney's soon-to-close restaurant; Sweeney feeds him leftovers.  After the restaurant closes, Sweeney continues to feed Smith (and the rest of his new found friends) a variety of his gourmet sandwiches.  I don't want to give any more of this delightful movie away - but if there's a feel good movie about being unemployed and eventually finding a job you love, this is it.  Aggie & I give Entry Level four kernels of popcorn - no hankies necessary.
