Brrrr! It's the depths of winter. We haven't had snow yet in Seattle, but we have had cold, fog, and the ever-present rain. My garden is sleeping, buried in a warm bed of straw. It's dark, cold and wet. But it won't be for long. I'm already planning which seeds I'll be starting early indoors;… Continue reading Wild Wednesday – Spring Chickens
I was tagged by WANA buddy and God of Thunder Tour Promoter for Thor, Debra Kristi, in the 7-7-7 Game. Thanks, Debra! She rocks as writer: Debra will make you laugh, make you cry, make you think. Make sure you check out her terrific blog, Sparks in the Fire, and follow the adventures of Thor… Continue reading Weird Weekend – A Rare Sneak Peek And Update
In my dolphin post, I shared a video of a cat interacting with dolphins. It was such an Awwww moment, I thought I'd share a few more with you. I give you....Dog and Owl. Dog and Otter. And my personal favorite, Dog and Elephant. Looks like Dog isn't just Man's Best… Continue reading Wild Wednesday – Animal Buddies
The tour guide was only half kidding when she said "We aren't responsible if any of the ghosts follow you home." It brought back memories of The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. I could almost hear the sonorous tones of the heavy male narrator's voice from the ghostly Disney ride override the tour guide uttering the… Continue reading Ghost Hunting Part Two – The Ghost That Followed Us Home
Short and sweet this week folks. I found this video a while ago, and just love it! Lil' Drac is a short-tailed fruit bat abandoned by his mom and raised by the folks at Bat World Sanctuary in Texas. Why bats? Aren't they icky, scary bloodsuckers? On the contrary, they pollinate and eat bugs. If… Continue reading Wild Wednesday – Go Batty!
Ah, Bigfoot. One of the trifecta of cryptids that also includes the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti. Remember the Patterson film that surfaced in 1967? A large lumbering ape-like creature filmed by two men out on horseback in Northern California had been praised and vilified. Is it a hoax? Is it real? Both men… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Bigfoot, Hoax Or Real Deal?
OK, I'm tossing you a softball here. Who out there remembers Flipper? Who's been to Sea World? Does anyone not love the bottlenose dolphin? When people say 'dolphin' this is the animal most of us immediately see in out head, but the bottlenose dolphin is only one of almost 40 species within the family Delphinidae. … Continue reading Wild Wednesday – Name That Mammal
Hub and I went on a Ghost Tour last weekend. I love that sort of thing, and his daughter gave us a gift certificate for the tour for Christmas. We were lucky it wasn't raining, but cold and foggy, which gave the perfect atmosphere. Just the history part made the tour worthwhile, but we made… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Modern Ghost Hunting Part One

This is the time of year when people make resolutions, plan to break bad habits and form good ones, and reconnect with friends and family. My wish for everyone on the planet is this: May 2013 be the… Continue reading Wild Wednesday – A Brand New Year
Oh the best laid plans...you know the end of that quote. I had all these plans to get so much writing done on my time off! Blog posts queued up, WIP work, but darn reality anyway, threw me for a huge loop. On the 19th, I woke up early to blood spattered all over the… Continue reading Wild And Weird, But What Happened To The Mayan Apocalypse?
