 Update: it happened so fast that I immediately self-isolated, which is what we used to do whenever anyone we knew got sick. 

The first week was wonderful! A relief and a comfort for the first few days. By the second week, I was getting cabin-fever and time seemed to slow to a crawl. The worst was over, tho, thank goodness, and I was able to work a few hours last week. 

I should have been back up and running by this coming Monday, but I’d forgotten how weak isolating can make the muscles of the body. Going for walks today and hoping for the best. No fever, just general malaise. Didn’t even work from home! A lot of emails went unanswered and hope to catch up sometime next week. 

For those who are stuck at home, my prayers of strength for u, it’s tougher than anyone thought!

I tell everyone to please adopt, and yet…

 Here I am telling everyone to please adopt, and yet I realize that it takes a good chunk of time and finances when done right with quality and care. 

A lot of people prolly don’t think ahead that far, so do what u can. 


This is a business card from a rescue that started out with good intentions, then lost in over-reach, and can’t be found now. From what I understand, all the critters were fed and watered and in good condition, it didn’t cost that much for food, and the shelters were basically lean-to’s, but it wasn’t overcrowded, and kept swept-clean. They gave several years leases on life for many dogs that wouldn’t have survived otherwise. 
And then it happened again, they couldn’t say no! Took in more and more abandoned critters to save them temporarily, and neglect began to appear for the original rescues. 
I don’t know what happened to the lady who started the rescue. I’d heard various versions of several stories, but I have no idea as of this writing if the owner was a fly-by-night, a crook, or an Angel..!?! 
Have no idea! 
In a way, it doesn’t matter, because critters can always be adopted, but should u have to surrender one,  especially ones found, rings, or on a regular basis, that’s when u want to make sure the rescue is a stable location. 
Dog N Kitty City is still going strong. 
and Operation Kindness is still around and looks solid. 
There are hundreds of rescues for all critters and breed specific, too.

r/Check It Out

Because there’s so much information to be shared on books, candies, chocolates, vending, trivia, holidays, critters, charities, faith, work, I usually end up scanning all over the web. 
  Instead, I’ve summarized it with one single site that can compile any questions u may have about, anything! 
   Briefly, it’s really quite an amazing place because the moderators do not interfere and yet are so effective at minimizing negativity in chats, responses or postings, that I would even venture to say that it has virtually all the benefits of Craigslist without the dangers. 
   So r/checkItOut!

Happy New Year 2022!


I can’t really complete a review of 2021, so I’ll try a preview of 2022. 

Just like 2021 and the years before that, 2022 will be fine no matter who, what, when or where. 

How do I know this? Am I psychic? Do I extrapolate events from last year into next year? Am I plugged into the future? None of that. I place myself in God’s hands, it’s the only way to let go of negativity.  

The things that make me happy can trigger or bore others so I keep it to myself. 

 Don’t worry and be happy. Peace.
