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.)

Social Media Sucked Me In. Again.

The last time I looked at the clock it was 10:30.  I had just picked up cat food at HEB after losing at Bunco. I remembered an email I wanted to read that I didn't have time for before the game. So I opened the email up. What could it hurt? It's just an email. 

Four (4) HOURS later I have seen all of the posted quartet videos and three of my favorite chorus videos (The Woodlands Show Chorus, Houston Horizon, and The Richtones) all competing in Las Vegas this week at the Sweet Adoline International contest. The music at this level is phenomenal! 

SAI is an organization that empowers women through musical education and performance of a Capella music in true four part harmony (not three parts with the "fourth" an overlap of another part) in the Barbershop style. They are the most amazing women on the face of the earth. Even at competition,while some can be petty and overly competitive, for the most part they are uplifting and encouraging. I can not say enough good things about my previous involvement with this organization. (Many if our churches could take some lessons in acceptance and encouragement from these ladies.) 

So, tomorrow I need to stay really busy since I'm going to be working on just a few hours sleep. That's assuming I don't see another email I need to read--like the one about adoptable pets from APAC...

Thursday is a dangerous social media day for me. 

(Unedited because I'm too pooped to fix problems. Goodnight.)
