My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

True Love sounds like a dream!


Yeah, he's all about the value-added features. ;) (And he's completely hilarious.)


Perhaps an iPod dock?



Ha! And do tell - does every single one of the gadgets that he loves have a discernible and useful purpose? I suspect not.
That being said, an led on your high tech leg would be pretty cool. Especially for those night time tricycle adventures.


Ian: You know they are making iPod docks with frickin' vacuum tubes now? I'm afraid I just can't compete.

Laurie: Actually, to be fair, he's pretty good about that. Having limited closet space and no basement has really helped us. I'm actually far more guilty of accumulating things of questionable use than he. And I know this because I am constantly being questioned about them.
