I have my own CHEESEBURGER Site, and will start adding like items of my own to RB. Meanwhile, please check out the Daily Cheeseburger

Thank you for not stealing my work: It’s copyrighted.

We live in a small farming community in Washington State, US— we opted out of the Rat Race many years ago.

Only eight (remaining) rescued indoor cats own my husband and me, and another 18 rescues form a semi feral colony live outside.

Our favorite place is home, but we’ve been a lot of places in the world.

We both like cats, art, funny stuff, photography, and good friends, and we strive to have harmony, laughter, and peace in our lives, most especially in our home.


You may notice green light in my photos, even the indoor ones: it’s because we live on the edge of a temperate rain forest up here in Washington State, USA. Filtered through evergreens and other trees, everything takes on a soothing, green cast. I removed it from some photos, left it in for others.

All of my work is protected by copyright. Thank you for not copying or using any of it without my express, written permission.

Please don’t ask me to vote for you or your work. I will always vote for the work I think is the best.

All's well here... finally! 01 Nov 2011

Pain had us incapacitated, after all the other junk that happened. Finally I had to drag myself up and buy a new base for our adjustable bed… the other had not only gotten wollowed out (wallered out?), but it had suddenly and unexpectedly turned itself on abd lowered the knee lift on its own, and next day, lowered the head lift on its own. Only had it about 8 years, but it wasn’t str…

Bad Medicine caused DEPRESSION

In the couple of days after Wooly died I went to a Neurologist, who read but didn’t think about the current meds I take when he prescribed something to calm the nerves that makes my feet and legs kick and bicycle when I’m trying to go to sleep at night. I read the possible side effects, and they were not very nice. / I take a few medications (meds) that are supposed to help me stay ou…

WOOLY and the Plague of 2011

“*OUR WOOLY’S GONE* / / 20:56 10/7/2011 / My dear friends: / I’m going to be gone from RB a bit longer. / It all started about 2 weeks ago when my best pal Wooly died. Or maybe the day before, when little Bandit passed away. / I took them to the vet, who said they were fine, but dehydrated. The next day, they died in our arms. The day after, the lab work came back. Nothing w…
