~~Decoration Day~~

~~Decoration Day~~

Who remembers when Memorial Day was called Decoration Day?……. I want a show of hands……. …..I do…     I do… I guess I shouldn’t be proud of remembering the name change……. I also remember buying lunch milk when it was in little glass bottles and not cardboard cartons……. …..hmmmmmmmmmmm… …..I guess that just means I’m old……. …..hey, but I’m grateful and appreciative that I’m still here…right? It looks like people are going to try getting together for family picnics…

~~~Aromatherapy~~~

~~~Aromatherapy~~~

This is going to be a short post… I just wanted to share this with you… I’m a product of the sixties and seventies…..so of course…..I’m into incense… …..(but I don’t like patchouli…..which is one of those obligatory scents from my era)….. I just recently got this new/cool incense burner… I didn’t expect it to work for me like it did in the photos… But it did…..! (except for when the air conditioner turns on and the vents start blowing)…

ASMR and Puppy Babies

ASMR and Puppy Babies

We have three remaining puppies… Val (who we are keeping)…..Penny (who is going to a friend this coming weekend)…..and the little orange ribbon boy. I have trouble remembering the sequence of letters in the SMR-thingie… I don’t know what they stand for… …..I should probably find out… ***What ASMR Means*** In the eighties, I’d heard about right and left brain hemispheric synchronization… (my brain has a continuous Doo-Wop beat…..not really synchronized at all)… I’m thinking that ASMR and the brain-thingie…

Music Is Good

Music Is Good

Well, it is… All kinds of music… I even have my own head-banging tendencies… And I miss Amy Winehouse… And, of course, Bob Marley… Mother’s Day recently passed and I spent some of the day reading trash fiction (always great) and listening to classical music from a TV channel’s assortment… Life is good… Paulo steamed up a butt-load of peel  &  eat shrimp with melted butter…..(I even think that May 10th was actually National Shrimp Day) Could life be any…

~~~An Etude Of Worms~~~

~~~An Etude Of Worms~~~

Okay…..parasites probably have nothing to do with music… I was just trying to impress you with using the word “etude”… I was trying to sound cultured… …..I’ll stop now….. But, parasites are a big issue with animals in the sunny/humid/hot/petri-dish we call Florida… Everyone with hooves and paws and claws gets wormed here………….regularly… I think I’ve mentioned before, that when I asked my Internist if we (humans) should be wormed regularly……. …..she just looked at me like I was crazy……….

Quinine And Ivermectin

Quinine And Ivermectin

COVID-19 is still looming out there with it’s slavering, drooling, consuming meanness… I understand that a vaccine is still way over the horizon, somewhere in the distant future… But I’ve been reading about a number of “potential” cures or treatments… I’m not suggesting trying any of them… I’m not endorsing and/or encouraging anything… I’m just reading stuff on-line… So here are a couple I’ve just recently read about… Food for thought… I’ve heard and read a lot about hydroxychloroquine (HA!—my…

The Up-Side To Quarantining

The Up-Side To Quarantining

Heh…..heh…..heh….. Look what I dodged…..!…..!…..!! …..JURY DUTY….. Heh…..heh…..heh….. …..see there can be minuscule/silver-linings to some very dark clouds….. like missing Jury Duty….. What a shame….. …..a real shame….. …..Jury Duty is something I look forward to….. …..don’t we all…..? But…….unfortunately…….I missed my pre-ordained…pre-selected Jury Duty….. So sad….. so very sad….. …….what’s a person to do…..? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I know……. …..when this whole-self-quarantining-pandemic-thing is over….. …..I will find the appropriate telephone number and call the appropriate person in charge….. ……………………………and I will…

COVID-19 Quarantine~~~23,731 Days~~~(and counting)…

COVID-19 Quarantine~~~23,731 Days~~~(and counting)…

Wanna know how I got that number?… I just took sixty-five+ years old and multiplied it by 365 days for every year… (my reclusive-tendencies are not a newly-acquired/pandemic-generated character trait) ~~~~~it’s a willing lifestyle~~~~~ ………………………and so, social distancing continues…..as it already has for the last 23,000 days or so……. The puppies are fine…….thank you for asking……. One of my worries is to have enough newsprint to keep shredding…..to keep absorbing their artesian pee’s and covering their ample puppy poo’s……. I…

Quarantine ~~~ Day Number 23,725…..(and counting)

We’re all right… We’re sitting tight… However…..Paulo always breaks for freedom at the first opportunity… We make sure he has the appropriate supplies and apparel when he goes out… When he returns home, I make him strip and dump all his clothes in the laundry machine… We store his face mask in the food cupboard over night……. …..(so that the cats don’t nibble through the elastic-ear-holder thingies)……. …..then in the morning…..it gets re-spritz’d with colloidal silver before he leaves the…
