Welcome to the BOMB.

The Blog Of the "Mother" of Bandit.
Bandit is my Hairless Chinese Crested--he's the "normal" one. I, on the other hand, am unrepentantly "pet-crazy." You know the type--the spinster who lives in the haunted house three blocks over with 72 cats...okay, so I don't have 72 cats, and my house isn't haunted--but my dogs wardrobe is better than mine! Need I say more? :~)
I've never been consistant at journaling, so the timing of my blogs will be sporadic at best. I just hope they are as entertaining to you as they are to me; however, be forewarned: Most of my blogs will be about The BaldOne. In spite of his Don King "do," I think he's just as cute as any of the Brothers B!
Now, if I can just remember not to get him wet--or feed him after midnight...

About Me

My photo
My bags are packed and I'm always ready to seek out an adventure with Bandit and Moggy in tow. Bandit is my thirteen year old Chinese Crested, who I frequently call The Bald One or The BaldOne Boy (like he was one of the Baldwin Brothers). Moggy’s full name is Pip-Moggy. He’s my two year old gansta-resuce kitty. I couldn’t decide between Pip (which are the spots on die and domino tiles) and Moggy (or Moggie when I mistakenly thought he was a she), so I combined the two. Moggy refers to the British term for "cat of unknown parentage .” So in essence, I have an almost bald dog, and I’ve named my cat “Spot.”

Falling Back

It's that time of year again: The return to Standard Time. Daylight Savings Time is a "short-timer."  I love falling back.  I love the extra hour of sleep. I wouldn't mind falling back every month...except for one thing--not all of my clocks are consistent. Some times they adjust themselves. Sometimes they wait for me to adjust them. Sometimes they adjust themselves at different times of the day. And once, my atomic clock adjusted itself a week later! So, every time change I'm up at 2 am making note of which clock has gone through the change, and which has not. Periodically (throughout the next day and sometimes week), I recheck all the clocks, and finally, when I think they are through changing. I change the stubborn ones...only to have them change afterward!

So much for being able to sleep an extra hour--but the intent is a really good one.


  1. 1am Standard Time, the numbers stand thusly: changed=2 (iPhone and computer), unchanged=4 (SUV, atomic clock, alarm clock across the room, and alarm clock next to me).

  2. I wonder...if I had posted something between 2 am DayLight Savings TIme and 1 am Standard Time, what time would FB say I posted? Would the post time appear to be a "future" time?

    Guess I'll have to try that out next year....

  3. It's mid-December. I'm not sure when it happened, but I noticed the atomic clock has finally self-corrected. :~)
