Some ironic good news

October 12th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Yesterday morning Shane was not in a good condition; his eyes had a confused look and he didn’t want to move. Only by putting a small sauce dish of water right by his mouth and moistening his lips was I able to get him to drink a little. The night before at the vet’s, he […]

The post about Shane?

October 11th, 2014 · 1 Comment

I regret what I wrote just recently; something is wrong with Shane and we don’t know what. Later that night Shane, who usually spends the night on his back with legs in the air on a big leather easy chair whined to go out and then we couldn’t find him. He was stretched out by […]

Alpha dog

October 9th, 2014 · No Comments

Shane and I are having a bit of a standoff as to the alpha dog in the house. He is on the deck, totally ignoring my commands to come. I am giving him the Evil Eye of Death. Obviously, this is not how to handle this situation. I really doubt a little conversation about him […]

A character has symptoms

October 8th, 2014 · No Comments

I am reading one of a series of books and in the last two, the main character has exhibited symptoms, such as dizziness. I CAN’T STAND IT. I am going to do an internet search to see if I can find out what is plaguing him. That is the mood I am in.

Middle of the night

October 7th, 2014 · No Comments

I woke up and thought I had heard Shane indicating that he wanted to go out, but he was not around and so I wondered if I should check this out. I found him upside down in the living room chair – going paws up has an entirely different meaning for Shane. He woke enough […]

The AmeliaJake App

October 5th, 2014 · No Comments

Yesterday I listed a link to Hooked on Houses, and after I did so, I scanned through some of the other posts on that site, including the Worst MLS listings category. And that got me thinking. When I look through magazines featuring nice homes and decorating ideas, I need to have a computer app that […]

Gee, Creative contextualization

October 4th, 2014 · No Comments

I came upon a site in which a church policy was to use creative contextualization to enable all people to understand the Bible. A couple of groups were cited: explaining some message to young children as opposed to senior citizens. Now I am wondering exactly what is so difficult about the stealing and false witnessing […]

I didn’t realize being tone deaf had such limitations

October 4th, 2014 · No Comments

Look HERE. It’s the Hooked on Houses website and it is about an Idaho lodge for sale, complete with guest cabins and natural hot springs that heat the house. I’m not posting a picture that stares me in the face because that would just turn my hazel eyes green every time I logged in here.

Oh, darn, kick the table leg

October 4th, 2014 · No Comments

I was rummaging through my purse yesterday and found a card for a doctor’s appointment on October 8th. Ack! Ack! Rats! and Drat! That’s this coming Wednesday. Oh, like I really want to go. I didn’t kick the table leg, but I felt like it. A nice little mini-tantrum. And, if that wasn’t enough drama […]

Kendallville and the Apple Festival

October 3rd, 2014 · 1 Comment

Every year the town hosts a two-day festival and I live not far from where it it held – walking distance, easy. There are all sorts of food booths, including apple burgers and apple fritters and the famous pork tenderloins that look like those hats with ear flaps. A lot of people just take the […]
