Molly, from rescue to snob

Molly is a snob.  When I am not at home, Molly, for the most part, parks herself in the middle of my queen size bed directly under both the ceiling fan and the heater vent.  Since I got Molly last July, I have been rotating between two bed covers.  Both of them are cotton or cotton/silk blend.  This is not by design.  I bought them because I liked them. 


Recently, I purchased a new comforter online because I liked both the pattern and the price.  It arrived, I washed it and put it on the bed.  Molly refuses to get on the bed as long as this comforter is on it.  The only reason that I can deduce is the fabric from which it is manufactured.


Princess Molly objects to polyester.

Molly - the New Year

Molly has turned over a new leaf for the New Year.  She has also turned over almost everything in my room.  The other night, I heard a rustling in my room, raised my head, and saw her with her nose inside a magazine on the floor next to my bed.  I raised up, made eye contact with her and sternly said, "not yours."  I then flung my medicated self back to bed and went soundly to sleep.


I woke up to 5 destroyed magazines, several destroyed pieces of mail, shredded underwear, shredded pajamas, shredded workpants and a very tired puppy.


Know what wasn't touched?  The one magazine that I told her wasn't hers.


We will be fine.

Nov 7/Starbucks

Last week, Starbucks unveiled their holiday cup.  It is, as always, red.  That's it.  It's red.  Normally, it is red with some sort of embellishment - leaves or snowflakes or ornaments.  This year it's just red.


I have no problem with this.


A lot of people evidently do.  This is some sort of subversive, anti-Christian plot to take Christmas away from us.


Seriously?


It's just a cup, folks.  It's red.  Take your magic marker and put whatever the heck you want on it.

Nov 6

I drove down to Amarillo today to get my military ID card renewed. I'm also going to go to a photography exhibit with my daughter while I'm here. And I remembered how many things make me smile. Molly dragging my $40 blanket around because she's decided it's her bed made me smile today - it went from my bedroom to the living room to the sunroom where hopefully it will stay for the rest of the day. The sight of two Osprey hovering above Bell Helicopter made me smile and feel protected. Sitting in a warm car and watching the wind blow made me smile. I think I'm getting better.

Nov 5/friends

Many, many years ago in a galaxy far, far away there existed people known as bloggers.  I was one - hence, the blog.  It was an interesting time to be alive.  Through synergy and synchronicity and sometimes just luck, you were able to find people that you connected with.


They might not live near you.  They might not be your age.  They might not have anything at all in common with you except one teeny, tiny thing.  They became your friends.  We wrote our stories and other people read them and commented on them - not just one or two word comments but entire sentences.  Sometimes even paragraphs or, if the thought was a private one, an email might be sent.


I have not blogged for a long time.  I have been seduced by the ease of Facebook.  Thankfully, so have most of my blogging buddies and we have managed to keep in touch through Facebook. 


I received private messages on Facebook today from not just one, but two of my blogging buddies just to check on me because I didn't sound like me.


I love you both.


Thank you.
