‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

There’s a bit of background to this.  In my truck, I never listen to the radio.  Instead, I got an old-school iPod Classic with 120 GB of storage capacity (they’d prefer we forget those good old days) and connected it to a multimedia-ready aftermarket stereo.  I learned that if you load up about 5200 songs … More ‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

Diary of a Sunday (aka random-ass thoughts) ~ 05-20-2018

Hmmm… WordPress wants me to “share my story here“.  WordPress should probably be careful what it asks for (lol). My only real story at the moment is that it has rained (a thunderstorm that actually spared our power supply!), which means that the temperature has dropped a good few degrees in the last hour, and … More Diary of a Sunday (aka random-ass thoughts) ~ 05-20-2018

Whiskers, Tango, Foxtrot?? (Or, how to combine cats)

I know the scenario all-too-well…  You have a cat (or more than one).  You want to adopt another one (or more) additional cats.  (Hell, the Crazy Cat Lady stereotype didn’t emerge from nowhere, right?) Here’s the deal… If you’ve never brought unfamiliar cats into a household with existing cats before, you might be in for … More Whiskers, Tango, Foxtrot?? (Or, how to combine cats)

It’s the most blunder-full time of the year :)

This Christmas Thingy?  Yeah, it isn’t quite as easy as it looks.  At least, not in my dimension.  It’s fun (!), it’s just also chock-full of potholes. First there’s the whole gift-giving thing, and the etiquette that goes along with it.  The pressure of matching the caliber of gifts, without knowing what people are going … More It’s the most blunder-full time of the year 🙂

Who rescued whom?

(Content Advisory, involving stray kitties that were originally abandoned but never harmed/injured, and ultimately rescued.  This story starts out a little sad, but has an incredibly happy ending!) ❤ Five years ago, around this time of year… The little black and white cat lay stretched out on the pavement outside the door of the Visitor … More Who rescued whom?

On the rocks 

When I was young, I had a rock collection.  The region I lived in was not particularly geographically dramatic or interesting, so the bar was low.  Granite was considered exciting; lovely white, iridescent quartz made my day. Most of the rocks were not very large; they could be found on the side of the then-unpaved … More On the rocks 

Cats see ghosts

I don’t know why, but I feel like writing about ghosts again today.  (This will probably be the last post along these lines for a while!)  😉 This one is far more benevolent than the last one.  🙂 — I had met my partner’s grandfather, “Granddad”, in 2001, along the escape route from my northern … More Cats see ghosts
