Attitude is all he needs

Oh. Sweet. Jesus. We are all doomed. Bend over and kiss it goodbye. That melted pile of orange goo has announced that he doesn’t need to be up to date on issues with North Korea prior to the summit. All he needs to do is have attitude.

I’m assuming he’s talking about the same attitude that won us independence, ended slavery and defeated Hitler. Yep, those were some attitudes. Of course, they were also backed up by guns and bombs but who are we to quibble. He’s the man with the plan. He’s the geeter with the heeter. He’s the Continue reading → “Attitude is all he needs”

There’s a hole in my heart

There’s a hole in my heart big enough to drive a semi through. Today, my little man Carm went over the Rainbow Bridge.  He’s not in pain anymore. He’s not limping. Not spitting up. Not looking dazed anymore. He’s up there with Lovey and his sister BuddhaBubba and Blue and Blondie and Mr. T and Abdul and Captain and all the wonderful animals that have so enhanced my life by their love and devotion. He running without pain and playing with joy again. He has his wings.

Saying goodbye is always hard. Since I tend to adopt older animals with Continue reading → “There’s a hole in my heart”

Surprising headline of the day

Under the heading of DUH!, there is the startling revelation that indeed that POS currently sullying the White House paid his lawyer back for the hush money paid to a porn star who he violated while his wife was home with their new baby. Way to go, evangelical Christians. You certainly picked the right role model for your brand of crap.

Second fun headline of the day, also under the DUH category, the Senate (including Republicans) have announced that the Russians did try to interfere with the 2016 election. Welcome to 2018, guys. Most of us have know this for Continue reading → “Surprising headline of the day”

Things lost in the storm

Things getting lost in the wake of a Stormy Trump… the total waste of time and money that the current Alaska Legislature is.

Yep, it’s been a stealth legislature so far, which is probably better than some years filled with spoiled brat whining to the press about how mean the other guys are. But still, this has been pretty much the definition of a do nothing legislature. They are on track to pass the least bills ever by an Alaska Legislature. Now again, I realize that can be a plus were it not for the fact that some bills that Continue reading → “Things lost in the storm”

Was this their plan all along

I see and hear from more and more people who are simply so tired and disgusted by the horror that is the current administration in DC that they want to just… and pardon this old hippie but it says it best… tune in and drop out. (I deliberately left out the turn on because unless we are talking about the tv, most of us old hippies are way too old to turn on.)

Anyhow, I have to wonder if this hasn’t been their plan all along – act so egregiously for so long that decent people will drop out of Continue reading → “Was this their plan all along”

The house that spit up and diarrhea attacked

My it’s been a fun weekend. Carm spits up liquid at least three times every morning if I don’t feed him enough or wait long enough after feeding him to give him his medicine. And Nayla, who has never found anything on the ground that she did not think was worth a try as something to eat, apparently got something down her gullet that messed her up big time. For three days she didn’t eat. She put out farts that emptied the room of not just me but the other dogs too. Then the liquid started out her butt. And Continue reading → “The house that spit up and diarrhea attacked”

Just disgusting

Heard Nancy Pelosi on a news shows trying to pretend that Conyer’s sexual harassment should be viewed through the prism of his being an American icon. Barf! I don’t have icons who settle sexual assault and harassment claims with money. And I don’t care a crap what their political preference is. Republican, Democrat, Communist, Vegan… I don’t give a crap. Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed of herself for defending this man. But apparently we hold movie and TV stars to a higher standard than our elected officials. That says more than we probably want to know about Americans. Continue reading → “Just disgusting”

Dr. James Scott – Flying to heaven on eagles’ wings

It’s a sad day for our community when it loses a good man. This seems especially true at this dark moment of the American soul. As hate, racism and kitty snatching become the touchstones of our country today, losing a man who lived with dignity, compassion and love for all his fellow creatures is even more distressing. It sometimes seems as though good men are in very short supply right now.

So the news that last week we lost Dr. James Scott, founder and heart and soul of Bird TLC, is sad on many, many levels.

For those of you Continue reading → “Dr. James Scott – Flying to heaven on eagles’ wings”
