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.”

Fun Stuff (I'm doing now or have done)

V Is For Vacation (A to Z Blogging Challenge 2015)

I'm a little bit late with my "V" post. For simplicity I chose to write a poem. None of my favorite forms wanted to participate so I wrote a non-rhyming acrostic about vacation. It's one of my favorite topics so I'm not sure why nothing would come. Maybe because T stood for travel and I had just written about last summers epic vacation--and maybe because I am clueless what I want to do this year--no timeframe, no ideas and sadly no money. Whatever the reason, I was unable to do justice to the topic. Here's my non-rhyming vacation acrostic:

Non-rhyming Vacation Acrostic

Vacation time is almost here
Alluring is its lack of responsibility
Calling me to a time of ease
Alluding to retirement
Tantalizing and tormenting
If only it were that easy:
Out of the office=
No cares

This blog post is my contribution to the A to Z Blogging Challenge 2015, in which bloggers from around the world, representing every skill level and interest, blog every Monday through Saturday during the month of April, using successive letters of the alphabet as the daily inspiration.

Tomorrow is "W" and as usual, I am clueless what I'll write about. Words With Friends, Work, and Writing are all possibilities, but nothing is screaming to be written yet...


  1. Great acrostic for Vacation. Yes it is like a preview of retirement - if you make sure to prepare for it!

    1. Thanks Donna! I agree--you have to plan. It's one of the things I do with others and have really been looking at for myself. I try to have a "Plan B" as well, because you never know what's going to be thrown at you along the way! :~)
