How to Travel Like a Pro

Since when did travel get odd?

  1. Don’t forget essentials. Your bed, an extra blanket, and a couple of toys.

2. Double check to make sure that your humans did not forget anything important.

“Rarrrrrf?”

“Your food is already in the car, Puppy Girl. Don’t worry.”

Rrrrrr, rarrrf?

“Yes, your water is there, too.

“Rrrrrrrrrrrrrarf?

“You just can’t see it. Your leash is in your bed. Now go get in the car.”

Rarrf.

What are your travel hints?

12 Ways guaranteed to frustrate virtual friends

Facebook starting to bore you a bit of late? No problem. Here are some ideas on how to alienate your friends and become a red flag. Adopt one of the following personas and get unfollowed in no time.

1. Be the King of Awesome

Consistently tag yourself in awesome situations, outside of everyone’s reach and reality. Overkill it with your travel photos. Share pictures of the awesome food you eat. Publicly proclaim your love for your better half, who is -of course- equally awesome as you are. Take up the latest trends in everything and share your experience to enlighten the clueless (“Glutten free for 2 weeks now and already feel like a new person”). Don’t neglect to highlight your sensitive side by engaging in some charity (that you can milk to death to further enhance your profile). More importantly: Master the art…

How I Framed Hal and Manny

#WP Photo Challenge Frame

I’m on my way on Thursday to visit Philadelphia and Delaware to see my mother’s only cousin, Hal. He’s 91 now, and he’s planning our trip to Harper’s Ferry. He’s also anxious that I bring Manny. Hmmmm?

Last time I was there I framed him along with Manny. It wasn’t Manny’s fault he likes to climb trees and Hal had to hold him up to keep him from falling out. Hal acted like he did not object to being framed.

Do you think he wants revenge?

Old Swede Hal1r

Framed again! hahaha, Hal.

Oops, I’d better be careful. He may be older than I am, but he’s a lot bigger – and degrees smarter, but that’s another story.

Since I’m leaving my neck of the woods, I’d love to meet any East Coast friends – who are willing to come somewhere near DE or PA. Any bloggers in the neighborhood? I’d love to meet you.

A friend of mine also told me I need to look up Ben Franklin in Philly while I’m there. Last time I looked up an old relative, Robert Morris. I was too late, He was buried at Christ’s Church. The tour guides let me ring the sister to the liberty bell, though. Very cool.

If you know me, you know I love museums, so I’m sure there are a few of those around.

I’m flying into Philadelphia on September 1st.

Book Review: The Picture of Dorian Gray

Dorian Gray
The portrait aged, but Dorian Gray did not.

Why Review a Classic Fiction?

When you retire, suddenly you have time to catch up on what you missed in life. For me it was reading classic fiction that I’d missed in high school and college. This is one of my favorites, and the Kindle version is free. Before I started writing my review, I decided to search the internet to find out what others said about  The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

Dorian Gray is beautiful and charming, and egotistical to the point of narcissism. He is a socialité with superficial thinking. When his friend Basil Hallward paints his portrait, Gray immediately wishes that he could stay forever as young and charming as the portrait. Who has not wished that? Unfortunately, for him, the wish comes true.

Gray perverts all that is beautiful in his life. But, every time he sins, the portrait gets older, while Gray stays young and healthy. The book seemed sad and not humorous to me. His life is rife with sex, lies, murder and crime.

Because I was reading, not studying the book, I didn’t realize until I read other critiques that I had missed quite a few of the literary connections. This did not prevent me from enjoying the book. What are your thoughts about this famous book?

Have You Ever Had a Bad Hair Day?

Bad hair is not new at Cee’s Oddball Challenge?

“Every day is a bad hair day with me,” you answer, thinking there could be nothing worse when you look in the mirror.

But is it really? This bad?

Do you have BIG see through ears that your hair won’t cover up?

Puppy Girl's normal look.
This is Puppy Girl’s normal look.

Yep!

This is not a bad hair day!

Cee's OddBall Challenge118

She looks like she uses an electric pitchfork to comb her hair. See it on her ear?

We think she’s the cutest dog ever! But we will admit to odd.
