enough already

here ranger is stretching trying to let me know he's bored

comb me

"maybe if I scratch-- she'll quit swinging and brush my hair


ranger gets very impatient when I spend too much time swinging. here he's ignoring me when I swing back. as I swing forward he turns his head to me thinking I'll stop and pet him

flying fur

one would think ranger would be hairless by now. we are both ready for this to end. baths are impossible during this time- the drain gets clogged with hair. ranger mopes if he's not bathed at least once a week. it's been almost two weeks since last bath

today is not your day

do you ever get the feeling that there is never "enough"? never enough hours. never enough minutes. never enough *you*.

this is a sign i have at my back door. just at eye level for the average adult to easily view. yet it seems to be ignored. over and over and over again. then, when i say "oh ha'ell no, do it ya day'umn self" the fijo'a have the audacity to get upset. do people think I took the time to buy the sign and nail it to the door facing as a joke? it seems that my purpose in life is to help others feel better about their fuckups. well, i quit.

test post

trying to figure out this sob. and hope it works. anyway. just purchased a new app ---- blogpress. day'umn thing was $10. I'm a cheapskate -- it just went on sale for $2 so that was good enough to give of a try. hope it works

are you smilin.?

are you smilin' yet???

bumped from 28 august 2008:
i was talking to a friend, not an mf'ah on line, but someone at my kitchen table, and we were discussing masturbation, and she was raised to believe it was a sin .... i tried to explain my theory on the subject, my spiritual-biology, or as an mf'ah said bio-fisiology, either are good ... here it is, if you believe in the fact of god and religion and humans are created in the spirit of their creator ... our soul is not limited to this physical form, but is something more electrical, ethereal, our body operates as an electrical system, and electricity can only be diverted not stopped ... it will reform in another connection .... now, the bodies nervous system operates on electrical impulses being fired between the synapses, thus thoughts, feelings, free choices are made .... when this electricity is stopped in the body all systems cease to function ... where does that electricity (spirit) go?
i say it goes to operate in another dimension ... as my spirit; you say whatever makes you feel better about dying. but back to masturbation ... feelings are electrical impulses and anything not taken to excess is not a fatal sin ... unless you do listen to religious dogma ... then you must confess and tithe or you will burn in hell .... aaaahhhll this got me to thinking of the *seven deadly sins* (note the date when it was conceived -- the church needed money - with this new religion and all starting to flourish)
i looked at these sins [which are really only aggressions against mankind] -- these things that the christian religion says you cannot be forgiven of and through a george carlin based process of elimination i have come to the conclusion that there is only one true aggression against mankind : gluttony --- over-indulgence in any part of a human's choice to relax or unwind --- eating, sex, laziness, hunger for money, blatant deception, greed [greed is the selfish desire for or pursuit of money, wealth, power, food, or other possessions, especially when this denies the same goods to others]
so in other words, after seeking enlightenment from many of the world's religions over the course of my life, i realize there is only one thing that we human's should really be aware of --- refraining from gluttony to the point of obsession that denies the rights of your fellow humans .... but i haven't really seen anything in all my searching that says we should limit our consumption of living, loving, and laughing -- and masturbation should allow you to fully enjoy all three of those to the utmost degree. so i'm ready to ascend to the throne as Your-Bikini-Clad-Empress, before i begin my world-domination-tour in 2009
Pope Gregory the Great (d. 604) described Seven Deadly Sins in his Moralia in Job.


blow out, stickers, washing, and spring time

with spring comes the dreaded "blow out". the once a year shedding that Akitas go through. they don't shed like most dogs. which is great. until the yearly shedding occurs. the white tufts on the ground is the first combing. there's about two more weeks worth to follow *sigh*


I began a personal war about 3.5 years ago. now with most of my yard bare. I'm winning. more to come when I get to pc---m okay, where was i ... oh yeah, when the kids were young... it seems the yard was covered with stickers ... one of them (kids) would come in crying because of a sticker under the skin ... i would get the required tools , tweezers and pin, and remove the offending pricker ... and tell the kids .. "put your shoes on ... that is why we buy them" ... and off i would send them, to play in a yard full of offending prickers ... that all changed about 4 years ago ... the eldest grandson was walking barefoot in the yard and found a sticker patch ... he cried ... so in my grandmotherly voice i said, "don't cry baby, mema will get all the stickers out of the grass."

so, i first began by fertilizing the yard ... i was told this would choke out the offending weeds ... hmpf! not in my yard ... the stickers thrived on the fertilizer ... so i began pulling them up ... one by one ... sitting for hours ... pulling ... then moving to another spot ... pulling up the weeds there also ... if you'll note ... where i pulled this sticker up is mostly bare ... the grass is slowing growing where the stickers once ruled ... i am persistent and i am determined ... to the point of fanaticism it seems ... for i now will only find one or two plants a week ... if that many ...

the moral of this story ? i don't think there is one, unless you're a sticker ... then it would be ,"stay the ha'ell away from my yard."

wash day

spring is one of my favorite seasons, except for the snufficating allergies

always there

fresh flowers

always at my side

when I'm out weeding or just puttering about. ranger is with me making sure I don't fall because when I do he has to be my "sawhorse" to help me back up. it seems he thinks it best NOT to let me hit dirt than to help me up. so there are many times I go to bend over and get a faceful of fur.

it's a dirty job but someone must keep me upright. that job falls to ranger.

faithful companion
