Bristol Motor Speedway part 2

the races

Looks like this race is not referred to as the “Fall Race” anymore. That it’s now called “The NIght Race”. I hope this is true since I could not understand WHY it was called the fall race to begin with when August is in the middle of summer. Please anyone one who knows IF it offically was renamed to only “The Night Race” please post with comments …….

Happy racing,

One Really pissed CAT

Have you ever tried giving a cat a bath  well I did and he wasn’t happy.

Happy pets,


Here’s to all Pet (animal) people part 2

Please turn off the lights
My feline babies started with my very first cat, an orange tabby that I got while I had Muffin. I wanted him to stand out so I named him Ozzy. Yes, after Ozzy Osbourne. I got him from a neighbor whose cat had kittens. He was a sweet cat and reminded me of a dog because he would come when called. I also had my sister’s cat Missy, who literally was a bitch, very antisocial. She stayed in my basement and only came around when she wanted. Then I decided I wanted another cat so I went to the shelter and this cute gray kitten caught my eye. I knew I found a new baby to bring home. I decided my cats were going to be named after musicians. Therefore, this cat was named Manson, but he mostly is called baby cat. Him and Ozzy became friends and would hang on the windowsill like bookends. By the time Missy finally started coming around she got sick and I had her put down. At this time I had the two dogs Lea & Tiny and the two cats Ozzy & Manson. Then there was a stray cat that kept coming around my back yard. I felt sorry for it so I’d put food and water out and this went on for a few months. I really thought it would get run over since I lived in a busy city back then. It didn’t take me long to bring him in the house. I joke and tell people I cat-napped him. And yes it turned out it was a male. Again I got to pick a cool name, this tan/orange color cat I call Geddy, after the singer for Rush, Geddy Lee. Not long after I got Geddy, my Ozzy got sick and I had to put him down. For a short while I had just the two dogs and two cats until the Pug came along.

So that’s my story of how I got all my babies….

Happy pets,

Here’s to all us Pet (animal) people


My pets are my babies. My very first dog was a Chihuahua mix she was white with long hair and I named her Candy. When Candy was about twelve I got a second little Chihuahua mix that was mostly white with some black and I named her Muffin. The two never got that close because of the age difference. Both were good dogs but Muffin was extra sweet. Candy died at fourteen. I got another dog that was a Chihuahua but this time a full breed. I was adamant not to name her after food. Her name is Lea. Muffin and Lea knew each other but not for long. Muffin died at ten years olds almost on her birthday. Now Lea is my oldest, smallest, and cutest of the bunch. Since she is the only female; she is the most spoiled.

My next two came into the family by chance. First came Tiny, a Chihuahua mix, who now weighs twenty-six pounds. His other half is a mystery. He was a neighbor’s dog years ago who was neglected and abused, and when they moved they no longer wanted him. They showed up on my doorstep on Thanksgiving day and asked me IF I wanted him. I felt bad for him and said yes. He’s really a good dog, just when I first got him he showed his teeth a lot, because of his history with people. Once he got used to me he was fine. Then came Frankie who started out as my niece‘s dog. She couldn’t keep him due to her apartment changing the lease and needed to find him a home. Auntie offered to adopt him. This one is a Pug named after the Pug in Men In Black. He’s like a bull in a china shop; not graceful at all. He’s a handful most days but when he looks at me with those big brown bulgy eyes, I can’t stay mad at him very long.

These are my canine babies I also have two felines but that is another story…
Happy pets
