Time to Give Thanks

Thank goodness the Republicans vote in Florida’s primary tomorrow. All of us down here have been smothered for over a month now with negative Republican ads on television. To watch and listen to these ads, as the candidates attack one another, it makes you wonder why anyone would vote for any of them.

We are packed and heading to the coast of Georgia tomorrow. Fred the Cat will be at the cat hotel also known as the vet’s boarding facility. Martini will be traveling with us and adding to his travel log of the southern United States. He loves riding in the car so much that he doesn’t care where he’s going.

This is a business trip for Mr. Pop but it’s a fun trip for Martini and me. We’ve already scoped out a cool dog boutique near where we will be staying so I have a feeling a shopping trip is in order.

Hopefully by the time we return next weekend all the Republican candidates will be long gone and we will be spared their ads until they finally pick Newt or Mitt. Are those great first names for candidates or what? Sounds like things you wouldn’t want in your flower garden, and especially not in our White House.

Computer Woes

Last Tuesday somehow my computer was infected by a nasty bug that basically tried to eat my nerves and my files. It took over my own security and basically shut me down. So my sick little computer had to go to the computer hospital to have its disease removed. I just got it back yesterday and so far, so good.

I am extremely careful when it comes to security. I never open emails with attachments and I limit which sites I visit. I am also a stickler about updating my security each and every day. Mr. Pop is not as shy about these things as I am. He too doesn’t open attachments but he does follow links and don’t tell anyone, but I think he was the one who might have brought this monster home.

So now we’re good to go. I think Martini and Fred the Cat are kind of bummed that the computer is back home, they sure did get a lot of my time that would have erstwhile have been spent here at the keyboard.

I sure as hell hope this computer snafu is not an omen of what I should expect in 2012.

Hello 2012!

The house was de-Christmas-ized yesterday. All the beautiful stuff is stored away and awaiting its time to shine next December.

We celebrated the end of 2011 big time here as it was time for it to go. I spent the first half of the year getting sicker and the last half of it getting well. I am so ready to put that time behind me and move on.

This year looks to be very entertaining politically. All these Republicans running for President in their own unpopular reality show. It’s already a comedy of errors.

Martini and Fred the Cat had fun having Mr. Pop at home for the holiday week. I thought it was fun too. We did not like getting into the old routine once again this morning, but it sure was great while it lasted.

So here’s to 2012! May it be a peaceful healthy and fun year.
