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!

Ever wondered...

just how companies really market their goods to an unsuspecting America?  It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they do it just like stealth marketing is depicted in The Joneses.  While I am not a big Demi Moore fan, I do like David Duchovny and I kept seeing this movie pop up on my Netflix suggestions because apparently I do like the occasional dark comedy.  Doesn't everyone?  Anyhow, I finally watched it (Richard also recommended the film) and I thought it was pretty good.  Darkly funny - with a little bit of sadness thrown in - but isn't that always the way?  Glenne Headly turned in a great performance as a pseudo-MaryKay type; Gary Cole was good as her husband who really did try to keep up with the Joneses.  Unfortunately, it didn't end well for him, but someone always has to meet their end in one of these dark comedies.  Lauren Hutton was nearly unrecognizable as the head of the marketing company - her supermodeling heyday was a really long time ago, it would appear.  At any rate, the movie is worth watching if for no other reason than to see exactly how we've been enticed to buy those things we really didn't need but thought we couldn't live without.  Aggie and I give it four kernels of popcorn and one hanky.
