Today I have to say goodbye to my beloved Bootsie, who was diagnosed with cancer of the mouth on Monday. I have a photo tribute here

But here are a few funnies to help chase away my sadness

To Sad To Post

I'm taking Bootsie tomorrow. She's still eating but she's getting nothing from it. She's not moving around much and I'm sure she's suffering.

This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

I love all my furbabies.

I still hope that God intervenes and takes her before I have to.

Saying Goodbye To A Friend

My Bootise was diagnosed with inoperable mouth cancer. The tumor in the back of her mouth is already quite large and in the next few days I'm going to have to make the decision of what to do.

I hate playing God with anyone's life, even though I couldn't afford surgery if it were possible.

I feel so powerless.

I want to share my beautiful Bootsie with you so you can help me say goodbye

Bucket List

There's this website that I found on facebook that posts beautiful, unique and sometimes abandoned places all over the world, and it got me thinking of making a bucket list of places I'd like to see before I die.

I realize that many of these will be impossible unless I marry wealthy pretty darn soon, otherwise I'm going to be an old lady living with my cats daydreaming of what could have been if I had made different decisions in my life.

England was always on my list from the time I was 5 years old. I fell in love with Davy Jones and that was it. England was where I wanted to go. It is also likely one of the places on my bucket list that I'll never get to. (It's the money thing)

Chicago is next, because I have a good friend that lives there and after watching so many shows on Food Network, I know it is where the Good Eats really are.

Las Vegas! Doesn't everyone want to go here once? I want to see the bright lights and amazing sights. (Again..not likely...airfare is too much, and frankly..I'm scared of flying)

From the Road Trip website...

Boldt Castle in Alexandria Bay,  NY. It's only about 8 hours away. Definitely doable if I had someone to roadtrip with one day.

Myrtle Beach SC...I think everyone goes there once. My nephew was there this year. I'd love to see Atlantic from a point south of the Mason Dixon line

I want to stay at Omni Grove Park Asheville, NC and the one in Bedford, PA...ah..but I'd have to lose 50 lbs...and look super hot..sigh...

Gol Stave Church Museum in Minot, ND just because it looks so funky!

Indianapolis, IN to see the Dinosphere

Now all I need is time off...a baby sitter for the parents and a whole lot of gas money

Cat Thursday

Thanks to Michelle who hosts Cat Thursday...I realized, I haven't shared any kitty pictures that were of the fur babies in my life.

Bad me.

This week I'll share some pics of my sister's cats

Too Much Junk

There are a lot of things I need to get rid of.

Old concert CDs that I traded for awhile back when I had a CD player. I don't listen to any of them anymore. I barely have a chance to listen to music these days. (And I'm desperately in need of more space) Concert T-shirts...


I wish I never tossed my money away on all these shirts. Some of them were from when I was much skinnier than I am now...much much.

Big sigh

Part of me wishes them out of my house and another part of me wants to keep them. I just don't know what to do.

I need to make room for guessed it...MORE BOOKS! You would think with the ereader that I'd get less print books but that's not the case.

I love ebooks and print books.

Someone needs to pull up a garbage hopper by my house so I can just dump it all in and not look back.

Anyone want to help?

Nope..I'm not really MIA... I just haven't been to Walmart to get those new phone jacks, and every time I sit down to blog or play a game or whatever.. Down goes the internet. We've changed DSL filters.. I think we've changed just about everything. Anyone have a clue at why a connection could be so wonky? And when it does come back up..why it has dial up speeds? It is so frustrating.

Top 5 On Friday

Top 5 Musical Summer Memories

1. My very first concert was The Monkees in July of 1986 I believe...Great show!

2. Seeing Deni Bonet @ Oglebay Park a few years back during their summer concert series. Great performance from a very nice lady who makes fun, funny and quirky songs and plays a kick ass blue violin!

3. Gordon Lightfoot @ The Harv in June of 2009.

4. The Moody Blues @ the super gorgeous and freezing Borgata July 15, 2015. I got gorgeous pics at that show!

5. Davy Jones July 29, 2006...the last time I saw him...beautiful memories...oh how I miss Davy!

An Episode Of ARGH

Last night my father spilled a huge cup of Cherry Kool-aid on his new recliner. You know the recliner that isn't paid for, but carried a price tag of $640! I swear sometimes it is like I have a 4 year old...A very strongwilled....BAD 4 year old that just happens to be shoved into the body of an 87 year old man. Oh and don't worry..I didn't kill him... I yelled a lot, but I didn't kill him. Cherry Kool aid! I never want to see that again!

Playing Catch Up

My internet is really getting on my nerves. I'm not sure why I bother blogging anymore. I can barely get things posted. It seems like when I have something to post my connection goes down. I'm so frustrated and angry. Case in point...this post was started yesterday and when I came back to finish it, my internet was down for 2 hours.

Again, the only plus to this is that I've been getting a lot of reading done.

Heck half the time I can't even visit blogs...

Grrrr, so if you get a comment from me, you should consider yourself lucky!

Life hasn't changed much. I'm still pretty much stuck in this house almost every waking hour when I'm not working. I'm telling you, it gets old.

I miss simple things like going to Target which is only a 20 minute drive away or the mall...or even day trips to the fairs.

I can't do any of that now.

But back to the week at hand.

I also found out that a man charged with murder worked for the company that I work for....Can I just say YIKES!

That's not something you find out every day...

I received a ton of books in the mail this week, some I knew were coming because I'm part of book tours, but today I got two Harlequin Presents novels just because I'm part of their survey team. I love getting free books!

So at least I have something to read when the internet is down.

On a musical note...I got the latest Mickey Dolenz CD called Remember. I plan on reviewing it sometime soon. (If my internet connection allows me)

Top 5 On Friday

Top 5 "Beach" Songs

1. The Beach Boys - California Girls (This my friends is a given)
2. The Monkees - All The Kings Horses (Every time I hear this song, I can see Davy racing the horse the little boy in the episode gave him down the beach....ah Davy....I miss you so much)
3. The Beatles - I'll Follow The Sun (I don't know why..but this song is a day at the beach for me)
4. Katy Perry - Teenage Dream (Not the best singer...or anything but her music is perfect for a summer day)
5. Donovan - Sunshine Superman (Best song ever!)

Vet's Are Ridiculous

I love my pets...but I swear it costs more to take them to the doctor than it does me!

My little Midnight has a urinary tract problem.

He was on antibiotics for awhile and now they want him on a prescription diet for the rest of his life.

Uh..he's only 4!

Royal Canin Urinary formula costs $35 a bag for 7 lbs!


I want to keep my pet healthy but I also want my bills!

Things That Are Getting Old...Besides The Obvious

~ Losing the internet connection every time I have something to post. (Which is all the damn time)

~ Doctor Who fans freaking out over anything and everything to do with the show..they take the word "Spoilers" a little too seriously.

~ Speaking of Whovians...the fans bitching because Peter Capaldi is older. Pardon moi..but I think he's pretty damn hot.

~ My father going all drama llama every weekend so that I'm stuck at home.

~ Never being able to go anywhere or do anything. I'm a prisoner in my own home.
