A Potpourri Of Events

Posted 10-20-2011 at 12:29 AM by caninemom3

It is quiet in the house......Wish is here beside me, Clancy is happily snoring on the couch. The fire is warm and glowing. Yet here I am. It is 2 a.m. and I can't sleep.

There are so many things on my mind. Today in Ohio a "sheriff"decided to implement a killing spree of wild animals that had been turned loose. No effort to try and tranquilize them. Just kill. I hate violence, especially violence toward animals. If they had been attacking people it may have been one thing but they were not so the "easy" way out was taken, just kill them. I won't EVEN go into what I would like to do that that sheriff. Suffice to say if I had MY WAY he would be given the same chance as those animals were.

Friday marks a few things. One very important event is it is my father's birthday. My dad was born in 1907 so he would be quite old now. I still think of you pop xo and of course I still love you and miss you. You always pretended to be SO GRUFF but as...

Someone To Watch Over Me

Posted 10-15-2011 at 08:00 PM by caninemom3

Today is the perfect Autumn day !! It is cool, the wind is blowing in that perfect October way (being a Christmas nut to me it feels like Santa Claus time !!), and this morning it was dark. When I went outside with Clancy this morning, though it was chilly I took the time to look around at the trees and to feel and breath in Autumn. Such a magical feeling in the air !!

Clancy and I returned back to the living room and I built a small but warm fire, turned the Christmas lights on which are on the mantle as well as my fiberoptic Jack O' Lantern which is on the entertainment center. We all snuggled in for a quiet and cozy morning. After reading a while I became quite drowsy and drifted off to sleep, Wishbone in my arms, Clancy at my feet, all of us in front of the comforting dream-enhancing soft blaze in the fireplace.

A few hours later I was awoken. Clancy was nudging me with that cold nose of hers and giving me desperate kisses. She seemed very concerned about...

Autumn Memories

Posted 09-23-2011 at 10:00 PM by caninemom3

Today was the first day of Autumn and the weather was perfect ! It was a bit rainy and gloomy but as I emerged from the house to go run some errands, it seemed as though there was a kind of glow about the trees and a magic starting to awaken in the air. As I went about the things I had to do today, I found myself smiling in spite of the gloomy weather. Everywhere I looked there were pumpkins for sale and everytime I see a pumpkin, whether it is a Jack O' Lantern or still just a plain old pumpkin I always think of my dad.

When I was very young, perhaps 4 or 5, my dad started taking me with him every year in the Fall to go and look at the candidates for that year's Jack O' Lantern. We would go to many pumpkin patches, sometimes farms until I found just that special one. Sometimes if I could not decide, he would buy all the ones I liked. I held his hand as we went from pumpkin to pumpkin, he being 51 or so and me barely being beyond toddler. Of course, I ALWAYS had to name my...

"Of All The Charlie Browns In The World....."

Posted 09-17-2011 at 09:17 PM by caninemom3

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us again. Christmas time. The lights, the feeling, the magic in the air that you can actually breath in. Most everyone in my Christmas family are looking forward to the Season of Seasons. I love Christmas absolutlely and totally adore it yet this evening as much as I want to think about it and feel the excitement like everyone else, I cannot.

Frustration. Anger. Sadness. Hopelessnes. Uncertainty. Fear. Regret.

These feelings are not the feelings of someone who is looking forward to Christmas. Instead they are feelings which indicate and have indicated for many years the need for a drastic change in lifestyle. A change I am not brave enough in any way, shape or form to bring about.

I have spoken of this in the past and for those who have read my blog, you know what and who I am referring to.

The problem is I feel powerless to effect the changes that I know in the long run would be best...
