New Sheriff or Chaplain in Town, or umm Top Dog?

There’s a new sheriff in town, or rather a chaplain… Looks nice enough…

Seems a bit suspicious for a clergyman.

Whoa!!! I think he just ate Rover! Or maybe he ran him out of town.

Maybe he is the new sheriff after all… and the clergyman.

No separation of church and state here….


Twins, separated at birth

Well, it took three years, but the twins who were separated at birth are happy to be reunited…. And it’s really quite amusing to see what happens: who bosses who, who has the first melt down, who brings who back from the brink, who is the fashion queen, and who is just so graceful… [...]

One of the seven signs….

Prepare yourself. We’ve just experienced one of the seven signs that the world is coming to an end.

The kitchen is actually finally completely utterly DONE!!!

I think back to when my thoughts paralleled Shakespeare’s – Oh kitchen, how do I hate thee? Let me count thy ways… Though I don’t think I ever actually [...]

I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill

Last summer, we packed the whole family including the inlaws into the car and drove for an hour to go blueberry picking. It was the end of the season and the bushes were fairly picked over. Nevertheless, five of us picked 11 pounds. We froze most of them, and they lasted until spring. So we [...]


Quick, call the exterminator!

We have an infestation! Oh wait, it was a Tot visitation… They look the proverbial snug as a bug, albeit not in a rug…

I guess they’re tea-drinkers, and have staked out their favorite flavors. Herbal of course… Wouldn’t want to be up all night.


Butterfly bash, Flutterby fete, Pixie party

When we pulled into the driveway, having just gotten home from swimming, Tot commented on the butterfly. She sits behind the passenger seat, and I couldn’t see what she was talking about. I’m not entirely sure what else she said, maybe that he brought his friends, that made me curious. As I walked around the [...]

Housing Boom

There’s been a housing boom around here lately. Here’s the construction phase…. It’s hard to get good help these days. General contractor Tot looks on as the inspector gets up close and personal with the structural testing process. The regular inspector, Devil Cat, must have been out sick, or was perhaps sabotaged by Picklepuss.

These [...]

Hands up where I can see them!

Here’s Tot practicing for the inevitable… Hands UP!!!

And of course, there’s the great expression for the mugshot. Look, there’s even a little thought bubble over her head…

Hazardous Duty aka How to pill a cat

My dad asked me recently if I got a job. What are you talking about? I asked… His response: You haven’t blogged lately. I guess I’m not the only blogger who’s having trouble keeping up. I was reading a blogger I like who hadn’t blogged in a month. Her excuse – feeding her 2 girls [...]

Gone to the dogs

So we just got this e-mail, or rather OUR DOGS did….

Dear Bergylsnorpe & Barkylthorpe,

Having a great time on vacation.

The water is very nice.

Wish you were here.


NOTE: the names have been changed to protect the furricent

So I leave for a minute [...]
