My Sweetest Toby

My Sweetest Toby, We had so much fun together over the years, didn’t we?? All the camping, and the tousling and the tug-of-wars and treats. And the snuggling, all the snuggling! You were such a complete part of my every day world. My day began and ended with you, all the timez. We walked together…

Mardi Gras Part 1: Delusional!

Well, hello there world! Greetings from the other side of Mardi Gras. I am laughing so hard right now at my first Mardi Gras post of the year, whereupon I shared my excitement and overwhelmedness about being busy preparing for my FIRST EVER PARADE. I’m not laughing because it was ridiculous or otherwise laughable. I’m…

FYC is THREE!

My goodness.  I just realized. January 5, 2012.  Denver.  Snow.  Desire to DO SOMETHING of my own.  Saving to move.  Craving to write. I can’t believe that was three years ago, already.  What a wild ride it has all been, since.  Thanks to all of you who have been Reading this Ride.  For THREE YEARS. …

Faire Days, Part 2 (Wherein the Elves Arrive at Albright)

Given my experience with Ren Faires and both my and J’s proclivity for spending time at them, we didn’t stop at paying one single visit to the Louisiana Renaissance Festival last weekend. Oh, nay. We could no more go to only ONE day of a Faire, than we could show up at one dressed in…

Reunion

I usually have a rule for myself, of not posting more than one blog entry in a day.  I’m breaking that rule today to get the following out, because I’ve been sitting on these emotions for weeks and…it’s just time.  More about my crazy month-and-a-half will follow in a more regulated fashion. ***** I’m glad…

Whereupon I Evolved from Patient to Villain in 24 Hours

At 6:00 a.m. yesterday, J and I went forth into the darkness to the medical center for my dreaded Nose Surgery. Checked in, saw my folks who came for support, talked some Batman, and was then taken back into the patient space to get the whole shebang started. Touro has a great team over there, for…

The Fruit Stakes at Dawn

Omigod, y’all! The Saga continues. Since my last ponderings about the Strange Fruits on Fence-Posts, I have been actively searching for further specimens. To no avail. This summer has been a slow season for Fence Fruit, I can tell you. All these wrought iron fences, and nary a fruit to be found. Fences, fences, everywhere,…

I Met Santa at Walgreens

I met Santa Claus at the Walgreens on Canal Street yesterday. It was a pretty normal, and fairly stressful, day otherwise.  So I was due for something awesome to happen. I’d navigated through all the construction to get over there on my lunch break so I could pick up a prescription right quick and avoid having…
