On Puppy Birthdays and Crazy Eyes

Today, my life is covered in dog fur.

Fine, it is always covered in fur because I have three shedding machines…a.k.a. Cupcake, Ginger, and crazy eyes Ophelia.

Happy Birthday, Ginger Snap! The only dog I know who is more cat than dog…at times. This is her angry, glare at Mommy face or “Bitch, Please…get that camera out of my face.”

Birthday Girl Ginger was not amused with the Princess Bunny Ears.  She still brings this incident up in therapy with much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Ginger among the flowers…zinnias to be precise. Well, I hope. I don’t know, can’t remember.

“So, how did that make you feel?”

Therapy sessions and napping, I talk she naps.

So, today, I say:

Happy Birthday Ginger!

5 Reasons to Be Nice to Me

Happy All Saints Day!


Happy Old Hallows Day!

Doesn’t matter which moniker you prefer, or perhaps, I should say…


For the entire month of November, I will be participating in NaNoWriMo(short for National Novel Writing Month, yes, it sound likes adults communicating with a newborn. I didn’t call it that, so don’t blame me). Within the next 30 days, I will be writing my novel, and for those interested, about 50,000 or 1667 words per day.

That’s a LOT of words…Hope the dictionary has enough in it.

So, I have but one smallish request….please be kind to this poor coffee chugging, sleep deprived writer. Why? I can give you 5 good reasons….

5 Reasons to be nice to me during NaNoWriMo

  1. Mean people end up as characters in my novel who may or may not be eaten by zombies. Are you willing to risk that?
  2. I’m switching decades from my 20s to my 30s. You wouldn’t be mean to an old lady, right?
  3. Writers don’t keep secrets well. So, unless you want that thing you did to be in a plot line , then be kind.
  4. “Vengeance cometh from the tip of a pen” is in the Bible. Well, I can’t give you a chapter and verse, but the “th” totally makes it KJV worthy.
  5. Be Thankful I’m writing the 50,000 words and not you!
