Well, I know that you basically just get a ton of silence from me here and then suddenly I just pop out of the woodwork and dump a bunch of unrelated pictures on you. I can’t help it. I’ve been less writerly, more picturely and just generally more busy with life and there is no way […]
We sure do miss our sweet doggy, Bruce. What a gentle friend he was to my boys… and to me over the years. He was an indoor dog which meant he really was part of the family. And even though most of the time he was just lying around the house like a farting, snoring […]
We will miss you. You were our sweet friend and our guardian. We love you. Brucie August 2005 – January 2013
Look how pretty they are! Check out those long sexy chicken legs. (Avert your eyes if you’re salivating. These girls are not for your consumption, you chicken-oglers!!) Crazy Mary, So young and so pretty; It really is terribly sad. And that’s why I write this short little ditty, Just because It’s a pity she’s mad. […]
I’m not sure what happened. It’s all a blur. I went to the feed store innocently seeking a few bags of chick feed and somehow I accidentally came home with 10 pounds of chick feed, 2 little rats and 5 pounds of rat food. You are probably now EEEKing or (like me) AWWWing. I had […]
That’s what my husband calls me. Tawanda. Remember Fried Green Tomatoes? When Kathy Bates goes berserk, repeatedly ramming her hoopty-mobile into the car of the pernicious youthful mocker who had cut her off in the parking lot of the Piggly Wiggly? (Or was it Winn-Dixie? I can’t keep my southern supermarkets straight.) Or when she decided […]
I’m officially a chicken lady. I’ve always been a little cuckoo but now it’s official. I am cuckoo for chickens. We rent a house on the lot that my parents own and live on. The garden in the yard has become my passion, along with the chickens. Mom and Dad had two chickens that had […]
Are there ever really enough flowers? No. Heaven will have never-ending flowers, I think, because flowers are good for you. It’s true. That is a lovely one, is it not? I feel healthier already. The happy tulips smile still, their cheerful petals like a frill, like a laugh, a twirling girl whose skirt spins ’round […]
The time has come, my little friends, to talk of nitty gritties: of wombats, bards and bicycles of owl sandwiches and kitties. by Me (just now) I wrote that just now. Just for you. Just for this blog. This is the kind of cutting edge news you are always looking for and coming to expect […]
Wow. What a marathon of a birthday. My 35th was a strange, sad, happy, crazy, blessed birthday. Started my birthday by finishing watching The Help with Shawn at around 12:30 a.m. Woke up at 5:00 to get ready to take the Mr. to the airport for his 10 days of orientation with Food for the […]
This kitty has worked her way well into our hearts. It somehow helps that she is incredibly photogenic. And terribly sweet and affectionate and only minimally destructive of used furniture. Seriously. Best cat ever.
My oldest child just turned 11 yesterday. It’s hard to believe I’m old enough to be the parent of a pre-teen. Really hard to believe. As in, I don’t think it’s possible. I’m still 23. He received art supplies, as per his request, for his birthday. Paints, brushes, etc. Today he whipped them all out […]
I haven’t mentioned it on here (though if you are a Facebook friend of mine you probably already know) but I have been pining for a kitty for quite a while now. My parent’s cat, Tigah, awoke my love for cats because he is just the sweetest kitty. Well, now I might say he’s the […]
It is real, man. It’s a pretty special bond. And it goes both ways. What do you think he’s thinking about here? I can tell you. He wants a sandwich. Dream on Bruce. You wish.
I love how he sits like this on the steps. I couldn’t help myself… He sits like this in the car too. Bottom on the seat and paws on the floor. Cracks me up!
My dog is Obsessive Compulsive. I don’t recall if I’ve mentioned it before. Forgive me if I have. He is obsessed… really and truly obsessed with stuffed animals and duct tape. Here we see him coddling a duck that does not belong to him along with a roll of duct tape. “Mmmm wonderful duct tape. […]
