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.”

Thankful for the Cooling Rain

(Disclaimer:  this is a total word-for-word ripoff of my FB post this morning, so if it appears familiar....)

Thankful this morning:  For cooling rain (self explanatory). For good eyesight (that caught the slightest movement as The BaldOne snuck back into the house as I deposited my purse and iPhone in the SUV while he went potty in the cooling rain).  For Doc's awning (had to air up not one, but TWO, slow-leaking tires in the cooling rain). For a faulty memory (that actually remembered my Supervisors telephone number--which evidentially did not make my recent contact purge--so I could call in for a few minutes time since I was going to be late because I had to air up the two slow-leaking tires in the cooling rain). But I'm especially thankful for my Stan Borum Memorial umbrella that kept me dry during my hike in from the full-to-the-gills-because-I-was-late-after-calling-my-supervisor-to-request-time-for-airing-not-one-but-two-slow-leaking-tires-under-Doc's-awning-after-the-BadBoy-snuck-back-into-the-dry-house-while-I-stood-in-the-cooling-rain-parking lot to my office (appropriately named Tge Swamp Room).  

I truly have much to be thankful for. Thanks for reading this tongue-in-cheek post. 

I deal with cool rain better than the stifling heat that is normally Texas. 

Let the rain-expected-all-weeklong week begin!
