My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Blogger Problems

So all the time I have had these blogs, it has been ridiculously easy to manage them .. write and publish, post photos, read comments, easy peasy.

Suddenly, thanks to whatever ... I lost the blog . I found the blog. It had no content. I managed to find bits and pieces and sat here way too long and obsessed over how to make it all The Way It Was.

After hours of obsessing over it and hoping I did not ruin everything else on my computer, I got my Blogger back.
Then there were the hours of getting some things back where they belonged and or removing things that were lost but left a big blank spot ..don't ask.

By the end of the day, yesterday, I had my blogs although my favorites list is a whole other ordeal.

This morning I read the Times then clicked on my Blog and it was gone again.

So I am here right now. With limitations ... I still can't do the easy things I was able to do , just days ago !

So let's hope Blogger gets its act together and I can have my Blog back the way it was.
I need stability in my life lol ....same ole blog, same ole blogger, happy cats ... you know what I mean?

Something Nobody Knows About Me

When I was around 20 years of age, I lived in Hollywood California.
I lived in a wonderful 1930s stucco house in the Hollywood Hills, and worked for a movie director.
It was a wonderful time ... still a lot of Peace & Love going on, pot being smoked, girls wearing flowers in their hair  ...

One day at work, my boss asked me if I could take his car and go out to the airport to pick up someone who was coming to see him.
The person would be expecting me, just pick him up, bring him back to the office/which was located in part of the directors house ..

So , I , the innocent twit from North Carolina, hopped into the turquoise blue  Cadillac convertible and drove out to LAX and waited for Mr Barger to come out ... he did, he was very clean, neat and polite and appreciated the ride.

While we were driving back to the house/office, I asked why wasn't he driving and he said he could not drive in the state of California for a while .. hmmm ... I thought better of asking why.
He was as polite and nice as he could be.

When we got back to the house, my boss was happy to see him, everyone thanked me and they went to talk business and I got ready to go home.
My best friend, that I worked with, came back from errands she had been running and asked who was in the house.. I said some man called Sonny Barger and then I told her I picked him up at the airport.
She almost choked .. laughing but amazed at the same time.
How was I to know he was the head of the California Hells Angels ??
And they made a movie about the Hells Angels ..you can see it on video probably .. I bet it is awful .

He is old , scarred and has throat cancer but I will remember that long haired man who was so very different from everything I would have ever expected and I laugh to think how innocent I was back then.


The Weekend pt 1

There was a bump in the night, a goblin got inside, the computer woke up this morning confused and not knowing what to do.
I have spent hours getting it semi normal.

The weather is chilly and sunny and beautiful.
I will have company later, a little bitty puppy and her mama.
The cats will be disturbed but they all have their hiding places ..

It will be nice to talk to a human ... I hope I don't start stroking her head and scratching her chin.

I feel like eating junk food.

Have a fabulous weekend !
