About Me

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!

Those Geico commercials...

are a crack-up!  I just saw the "Do dogs chase cats?" commercial the other day for the first time.  That cat looks just like Peter.  He may be moonlighting as a stunt cat and I just don't know it.  I'll know for sure if the royalty checks start arriving in the mail.  Then I discovered that you can watch all the Geico commercials on YouTube - a boon for those of us who like to waste time on the internet.  I'll admit it - I've watched them all.  At least once.  I really love the "Is the pen mightier than the sword?" commercial.  Especially when the delivery guy asks for his pen back.  My dad used to say that when I was a kid, I could be running around the house making a general nuisance of myself when everyone else was trying to watch television (Ben Casey, Dr. Kildare or Sing Along With Mitch, probably) but when the commercials would come on, I'd be right in front of the screen watching with rapt attention.  In kid time, a commercial is just the right length.  I still get a kick out of them.
