Love in the Time of Corona: Literally

So the other day I was hanging out on the couch with Chief and, as I like to do, I grabbed his paw and took a whiff. I happen to love the way his paws smell, like corn chips. I was feeling a little under the weather and thought that would cheer me up. Oddly […]

Seize the Day

I’m sitting in my bedroom. Well, the guest room at The Bachelor Colony, because it’s cold and dark everywhere else. Outside, inside, everywhere.

Mini-Post: 303 Boards

I am headed to Durango with BF for a few days. We are stopping in Grand Junction to have lunch with my dear Marcia whose health has taken a turn for the worse. I’m not ready to talk about it yet but suffice to say I will be spending as much time with her as […]
