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)

  • Artistic Attempts weekly (alternating between Painting With A Twist, That Art Place, and Peniot's Palette).

  • Participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
  • Spades and Liverpool Rummy with the Spadetts weekly.
  • The Mighty Texas Dog Walk, Austin (fund raiser for Service Dogs, Inc--they train shelter dogs to be Service Dogs, then give them free of charge to people with disabilities.)

I have People

This post is part of Think Kit by SmallBox.

January 20, 2016 prompt:   “Tickets! Tickets!  What (or who) did you shell out or stand-in-line for this year? Was it worth it? What made you wait in line, log-on early, or form a lifetime attachment?”

I have People

I don’t do lines—I have people for that.
I really am not that pretentious, but I truly don’t do lines. If at all possible, I shop during "off hours." I use the self-checkout at WalMart. I limit my groceries to 15 or less so I can go through the speedy check at H.E.B. (my Texas-based grocery store).  I still haven’t seen Star Wars—although in truth that has more to do with the cost of a regular movie ticket, popcorn, and a Diet Dr Pepper costing more than a dinner out. Not to mention, if I decided to purchase one of the reserved seats, and have a meal while watching the show, I would be spending close to $30. For a movie. Just me. I can wait ‘til it comes to the Dollar Theater, where I also smuggle in my snacks—I justify my brazen departure into lawlessness because they don’t carry DDP.  In truth, I haven’t even gone to see a cheap movie in over a year.

The last concert I attended was Michael Bubble’  back when his nose-bleed seats were still affordable at $85 a pop. And a friend went online to buy tickets for the four of us to be able to swoon over him. It was worth it.

The last professional football game I attended was my beloved Cowboys last Thanksgiving in Cowboys Stadium. I purchased packages for Daddy and me that included rooms at the same hotel as the team, attending the pre-game radio show the night before, a tailgate party in the stadium parking lot, nosebleed seats for the game, a post-game Thanksgiving Day Banquet, a tour of the old stadium the day after the game, and a drive over to Arlington to view the progress on the new stadium—what I call JerryLand.

In fact, the  only tickets I obtained this past year were season pass football tickets for my alma mater. And again, I didn’t stand in line for them, because a friend, who is on the Board of Directors, obtains the tickets for our cozy little group of nine. Go Cru!

So, come to think of it, I really am blessed to have people
