That feeling of wet

Got into bed a few nights ago and realized I’d forgotten to brush my teeth. Got up and went to the bathroom sink without putting my slippers on. Stepped on the little rug in front of the sink and it was soaking wet. Turns out that when BuddhaBubba gets up in the evening as we watch TV and goes into my bathroom, it’s not to get a drink of water… it’s to empty the last drink out on my rug.

It’s a good thing I love that dog so much.

No, no, no!

The weather was just getting back to my comfort zone and bam! today is another scorcher. Does no one in the universe understand that this is Anchorage and we are NOT supposed to be this warm. C’mon goddess, get it straight. Alaska cold. Florida hot. How hard is that?

I have learned the hard way to not touch the little camera icon that apparently turns the camera’s eye towards the taker. At my age, that’s just scary. No one should see themselves that up close and personal after hitting sixty unless they

Dog versus Machine

image

Some dogs view vacuum cleaners as the enemy, a scary and frightening beast to run from as quickly as possible. But not my Carm. My Carm views it as a rival for all the food my birds toss out of their cages. When I bring it out to sweep each morning and evening, he goes nuts trying to stay one step ahead of it so he can get to the food before the sweeper eats it. The sweeper always wins but my Carm never stops trying!

Just a thought…

I suspect that if Jesus and Mohammed were to return to earth, the first thing they’d do is put out a tweet that simply said, “Please stop killing people and using us as the excuse.”
