A kid in my kindergarten class told me when I was five that Santa Claus wasn't real, which my mother confirmed. When Easter rolled around, I just figured if Santa was a sham, the Big Bunny must have been, too. The only good thing I can say about learning these truths so young was that then I could dictate what I preferred to find in my Easter basket.
Deb, I can see how important that would be to you.

Correction: I can see that light later in the day would benefit some people.

Mark, I can see what light later in the day would benefit some people. I guess there's no way to make us all happy with the light situation.

by Kris Neri of the Femmes Fatales They say great minds think alike. I don’t know if that’s universally true, but sister Femme, Elaine Viets, and I both took issue with time changes lately. Why do we spring forward and... Continue reading

I work from both ends. Start with the ears, then nibble the feet. But honestly, I'd rather have dark chocolate Dove squares than a bunny.

Jeanne, I'm glad that worked for you. I'm actively working on watching where I'm going and looking at what's around me. I hope I'm as successful at it as you've been!

Aimee, I like that explanation! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

My favorite characters have just told me what their names are, and I've gone with that. Otherwise, I have to keep trying names until I find the one that works. It's funny how you know when it's right. I never tried two names before. I think that would confuse me even more.

Barb, thanks for sharing Scout's story. I always think of those awful first families as the place-holders until we, the rightful pet parents/friends, are in a place to take them. I bet Scout thought it was worth enduring whatever awful treatment those miserable kids gave him to reach the point when he and you could connect. You were both so lucky to have each other. He's still watching over you.

Marcia, how lucky you are to have been chosen by a pet who's willing to work for his keep by finding typos. Pretty coloring.

Some good ideas here, Elaine. We've been binge watching EVERWOOD and WAREHOUSE 13.

I feel your pain, Marcia. I always think I'm going to like having work done than I do. The process is painful, as is paying for it; only the outcome is good. Your deck looks wonderful!
After living most of my life in Southern California, I'm thrilled that I live in a place that gets some snow. We've actually had three snowstorms already this year. I love looking at it when it's coming down, and when everything is a pristine white. It's just that after it falls, I want it to go away for a while. Now, we're back up into highs of the 60s, and that's good. My snow need has been filled.
