"Agreed, Safe Bet's!!!!!  I drive by every day and watch it turning blacker and blacker.  That fascinates me.  Why is it turning black?  Exoskeleton? I love that little nugget of trivia about leprosy. JMac....that is ANOTHER…"

"Did you know the fun fact that the armadillo is the only other animals besides humans to host the leprosy?  You may have been risking your life for the shot more then you realize.   Let me know if body parts start falling off, okay?…"

"Along with the Texas Longhorn steer and the Mexican free-tailed bat, the Nine-banded armadillo is one of the three officially designated State Mammals of Texas.  Not sure how the designation affects the disposal of roadkill."

"Excellent, sista!  You are awesome.   The roof rack is crazy.  However, it makes for some hilarious jokes.  For instance, my sister took one look at it and said, "No you have two big racks.""

Check out this repulsive thing I spotted right next to the sidewalk.

That, my friends, is a dead Armadillo.  Lying suspiciously close to where I spotted that ghastly buzzard-thing the other day.

My husband is so patient with me.  I actually stopped the car in the middle of traffic and…

Special Needs Adaptive Equipment

This post is a follow-up to my Ice Breaker post dated March 20, 2017.  I have acquired some equipment that I have found particularly useful in combating some of my problems.  The two I am sharing today are my special watch and my hideous luggage rack.

I’m starting with my luggage rack because this will be quick and obvious when you see the photo.  About a month ago my husband and I bought a different vehicle.  It has a hideous luggage rack on…

Posted on March 22, 2017 at 2:40pm 4 Comments

Back when I was a fancy professional, kind of, with an office of my own, I had that place decorated with birds.  Lots of birds everywhere.  I didn’t really intend it to be so, it just happened.  I hadn’t even really noticed it until someone walked in one day and commented on my love of birds.  That comment gave me pause and I looked around.  It did appear as if I were a bird lover from way back.   Birds on the walls, bird figurines, birds my sister made, birds I made, birds students made for…

I'm not gonna lie.  I felt very weird and voyeuristic entering that gentleman's home and watching all those homo sapiens paw through his personal belongings.  Aside from the obvious rapaciousness, I think it was disconcerting because he was a III, not Sr., not Jr.  But the third, and last, in his line.  He left no children, he does not appear to have ever married or partnered and he has no siblings. His obituary indicates that he is survived by "a host of friends and several cousins." He was…

Welcome aboard.  Your comment about being fallible made me think of a line from Firesign Theater, "We're all Bozos on this bus."

Look forward to reading your dabbles.
