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)

Schlotzsky's Agelotzsky's

Did you know Schlotzsky's has a Senior Discount?  I've received it for the second time, from two different cashiers. Unasked. I'm kind of psyched.  

Schlotzsky's thinks I'm still in college! 

What?  It's not a college discount?  Surely they don't think I'm High School?! They don't work for tips so they don't have to butter me up. But they don't need to stop either. I kind of like it. 

Oh. It's not a school-related discount? Well, I know AARP started pestering me when I turned 50. Actually, the first time I make a hotel reservation each year using my AARP rates, my savings pays for the annual dues, so everything I save thereafter is icing on the cake. I can forgive the pestering. At least it's not as bad as the hearing side offers that started coming in last year. 

But this wasn't an AARP discount I received. This was a Senior Discount, and each place offering a Senior Discount uses a different age. 

Hummm....receiving the Senior Discount could be good--if they have a really low age.   

Or, it could mean I need to "color my sparkles" as a friend says. 

I wasn't about to show my ignorance and ask them what their discount age was--so, to avoid embarrassing the cashier or myself, I Googled it. It was easy enough to find, but not to messy to read. 

Next stop:  Walgreens cosmetics section.
