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).
  • Bunko with the Belton Bunko Babes monthly.
  • 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.)

Two Haiku (not really, I just liked the rhyme—but it is a short post)

This post is part of ThinkKit by SmallBox.
January 8, 2016 prompt:   “Communal Circles:   What new circles have you formed? Any unexpected ones? Did you start a book club or hang out in a tea yurt? Maybe you re-upped with existing friends. Explore your kumbaya moment from 2015.”

Two Haiku (not really, I just liked the rhyme—but it is a short post)
I had a lot of fun with my tongue -in-check response for the post yesterday—just shy of 2,500 words of fun. The post today is much shorter.  I’ve written two 5-7-5 verses (not true haiku because , although they have the requisite meter, are not capitalized, not punctuated, and not titled,  they don’t imply a seasonal turning point).   

The first 5-7-5 verse is about the bane of my existence—techy stuff. I’m determined to learn and conquer this stuff. Even if it kills me—and it very well may. I don’t have a clue what I’m doing on line. I think I need to befriend an 8-year old to be my own personal tech support, because it's here to stay (and change faster than the speed of light).

The second 5-7-5 verse is about my live communal circles—the friends with whom I find relaxation and inspiration. Whether it’s at weekly card or board games, bunco, singing in the church choir,  trying new artistic endeavors for which I have no aptitude or talent, or encouraging and supporting my writer friends, each connection either calms me or pushes my creativity.
