My son has found a beagle. It's a nice dog and obviously has an owner. It takes quite a while for a beagle to get as fat as this one. The problem is that it won't go home. I tried leaving it out so that it could head off to wherever home is. All the dog did is lay on the porch. I didn't want it to come in - no illusions about keeping it - but in the back yard it howled for hours until the neighbors complained. Now I have a beagle infesting my bed.

why my bed?!? I have not tried to get to know the dog, it's cute and all, but WE ARE NOT GOING TO KEEP IT. EVEN IF WE CAN'T FIND THE RIGHTFUL OWNER, WE ARE NOT KEEPING THIS DOG. The dog does not understand this and has chosen me to be it's person. I've only pet the thing twice that I can think of, everyone else gives it tons more attention. Still, it has adopted me. That would be fine if 1. I wanted to be adopted and 2. it didn't try to bite my other dogs when I petted them. He is going to piss off my great dane and get injured if he keeps this behavior up. She's a sweet dog, but can only take so much. A warning nip from her will leave a mark on his stubborn neck.

Today I am going to force my son to staple up flyers. I would have done it yesterday, but the rain was too much. Today we start trying HARD to get this dog back home. I have 3 dogs and don't want a fourth.

Driving in Kansas City.....

is a very dangerous thing to do lately. Yesterday I counted 15 cars who ran red lights. We're not talking pushing the yellow, but actually entering the intersection on red. At one stop light 3 (yes 3) cars went through while my side was green. If I had gone on green I would have been in a serious accident. One guy actually went around me when I stopped on yellow to run the red light, honking and cussing the whole time.

What is wrong with people??????? If you die or kill someone YOU WON'T MAKE IT TO WHEREEVER THE HELL YOU ARE GOING ANY FASTER THAN IF YOU JUST STOPPED FOR THE FLIPPING LIGHT!!! Where are the cops? The situation is getting dangerous. I have noticed the growing trend of running red lights over the past year. 15 is not the highest number I have seen since I started counting. One day 38 people ran red lights where I could see them. I'm only one person. If I counted 38 people then how many actually did it that day??

Quit driving like morons KC.

A year later

It's been a year since I last posted. I guess losing the fight with City Hall took a lot out of me. It was a disappointment to say the least. I had forgotten about this blog until Stephanie mentioned it to me and I decided it was time to pick things back up.

I have a second blog which you can find on That one is about things that make me say Oh Wow!! and isn't focused too much on personal things. So, I keep this one too.

We have opened a store/display space in Westport. It's a very tiny little spot in the horseshoe on Pennsylvania. It's right next to Sage & Daisy and across from Murray's. years ago the hat shop, The Missing Piece, was in my new location. They've moved across the parking lot to a bigger spot now.

This is the place as it looks now. Next week we will get window lettering so that everyone knows who we are and what we do. It's been a pain to paint and get ready, but it's finally coming together. I'm slowly gathering everything up to make the place the way I want it. It's hard to find the perfect thing sometimes. You know how it is when you go shopping and you don't know what you want, but you know you don't see it? That's what it's been like for me.
