I Think I’ve Created a Monster


Sleeping Chihuahuas

Many years ago, when Hubby and I first met, neither one of us had pets. Oh, I’ve had dogs in my childhood. They were always strays. The one we had the longest (and she was the one of the best dogs ever) was Missy. She was still relatively young when she found us – maybe 2 years old – and we had her until she died about 14 years later. But she was the most gentle and loving dog you’d ever meet, part Labrador and part Collie, and you’d only have to fear being licked to death from her. More

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted – and after regular weekly postings, I figured I’d better post something short and sweet. More

Things Vacation Days Were Not Made For

Garage Door Springs

This week I had the unprecedented pleasure of using a vacation day to have something fixed at the last minute at home. Oh, things were going along just fine to start off. Hubby got up early like normal and took the doglettes for their early morning walk (exiting and entering through the garage door), then I got out of bed and got myself ready while watching the news. I took Hubby to the train station (exiting and entering through the garage door), then continued with my morning constitutional, lunch packing, and doglette scratching/cuddling before I left for work early. As is typical for us, as soon as I walked into the garage, I hit the button to open the garage door so I can see if anything is in the way before I get into the car. And so, I hit the button.

The door struggled to open 5 inches.


AirTran: My worst flight experience ever

Leave a comment

I just returned from a weekend trip in Atlanta, and have two stories to tell. Both together would be too much for one blog posting, so I decided to split it into two separate posts. The first, which I will address in this posting, is regarding the horrendous flight experience with AirTran from Atlanta to Philadelphia (as well as our trip to Atlanta), and the next (in a positive note), how the iPhone should really be used as an incredible traveler’s tool.
