I got slapped 24 times yesterday. This F*bomb resolution is tough! It’s taking a bit longer to go through all the December posts to make sure each of your entries get into this RZA drawing, so I need one more day to make sure I include you all properly! In the meantime, I thought I’d … More Meeting Clara and Ringing in 2013 with a ‘stache and ‘jama Party
I wish I had a journal and Bentley dog for everyone who entered these contests. I really appreciate how much you support the blog, join in the fun of the contest entries and support the non-profit organizations. And the winners are… .
Win Bentley the Bernese Mountain dog, his book, Booboos, Band-aids and Bentley (signed by both the author, Janet Myers, and Bentley the dog, with his giant pawprint in the back). You also get a great tote bag from Village Lights Books, the indie bookstore where I met Bentley!
Hey Griswold. Where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big? Bend over and I’ll show you. Okay, Kurt is not at ALL like Clark Griswold, but ever since we bought our house with its 23′ great room ceiling, our Christmas Trees have been, well…obnoxious.

My phone is quiet (I … More Sequoias in the Garden of Gethsemane and the Douchebag in Starbucks
As you might remember, I’m currently house-sitting in the woods of rural western Pennsylvania. The house comes with three labrador retrievers, and I brought my own. It’s a little chaotic, so one of my reprieves from that is making them all wait until all food and water dishes are filled before they get to eat. … More Feeding Time with Four Labrador Retrievers
I’m dog-sitting for the next ten days. The house is on thirteen acres of rural western Pennsylvania, without internet, only enough signal for a text message and a landline analog phone still clinging to one of the necessities of living where electricity may be out for days. My cell phone burns the battery overnight as … More Sitting Dogs and UnPlugging

Mom named her after Wendy the Good Witch on Caspar the Friendly Ghost. Secondly, Happy Halloween! Some of my Facebook friends have already seen … More Halloween Wishes from Bax Vader
Two nights ago I accidentally showed a photo of my butt (in those “ROCK STAR!” skivvies I told you about) to a fellow writer as I was trying to show her how to use my camera phone. You might remember that these blunders have been happening more frequently lately, like the recent blog about offending … More On Being Peter Sellers
The biggest rattlesnake I didn’t see was about 4-ft long. This information according to a couple fellas I met while hiking the trails at Laguna Niguel Regional Park. I watched carefully every day. The dog I was caring for had been bitten earlier in the year, and his owners warned me to keep a close … More The Biggest Rattlesnake I Didn’t See at Laguna Niguel Regional Park
