Hello fellow bloggers, family and friends:

Today I was on the bus coming back from town and at the time I got home so did a lady and her animal (dog) as the dog passed one of the women in the front of the bus she made a comment that just burned my butt I’m not sure for the same reason you would think.  First I’m an animal lover and as that lover I feel the lady should have her dog on the bus with her if she wants to.  Second as an ex-smoker I have already lost a lot of rights because of the non-smokers who go to the same places then complain about second hand smoke.  Last but not least by any means is that the dog wasn’t there for its help it is a companion dog and as such it is her job to be with her mistress where ever she happens to go including on a bus.  Now I know there are many of you that might not agree with me but you must have a reason.  There are three types of dog services which are enforced through the ADA (American Disability Association) service dog which is a blind person needing a see and eye dog, companion dog which is a dog that spends time with a person so that person doesn’t feel alone and last is therapy dog which basically helps a person with therapy.   I just wish that when people say something that before that engage their mouth they need to think about what and how they are going to say it.  I know that something on here I’m not always the most diplomatic about things like this subject but I’m not trying to hurt anyone feeling and if you’re talking about my animal then you’re not only hurting my cat’s or dog’s feelings but you are trying to piss me off.

I know there is a subject in all of us that just hits that cord and all hell can break loose well actual I have two animals and my Mama even though she isn’t with us anymore.  I will take care of my animals and my Mama’s name because neither of them can take care of themselves.  For all of you who are out there in cyberspace take a minute if you are reading me and please tell me yeah or nay I’m just wondering if I’m way off base or for some reason or another I am right on the money on this issue.  Thanks I hope you all have a great St. Patrick’s Day and a wonderful Easter.

Love Kat



Hello fellow bloggers, friends and family:

Just wanted to let you all know out there in cyberspace that I appreciate all your support and understanding during these trying times.  I know that they are very hard at the moment but I also know that they will get better.  For those of you who read redsoxlady35 you know that I write about mainly family stuff here and I now have a new site called rambling thoughts which has just about anything on it.  LOL Please check it out to see what you think the site is mostly stories.

Thanks again for hanging in there with me and I know that I’m on the way to recovery as we speak.  I am hoping the rest of the year mellows out and gets better for all of us.   Take  care my friends, bloggers and family you all are in my heart and prayers.


Hello my fellow bloggers, friends and family:

This new year hasn’t started off so well for me.  As a lot of you know Henry wrecked his truck in April and the odds wasn’t so good that he would survive the accident well he did believe it or not with all the parts he broke and the head injuries Dr said he was a lucky man.  Well as it turned out he lived a little longer and we were lucky to have him with us the extra time but in the end the accident did him no favors.  He had bone cancer and when he got all those broken bones from the accident it caused the cancer to spread up into his lungs.  Which caused him to lose his fight with the cancer on 27 December 2014 but because I didn’t find out about it until February I had to notify his son and of course he was upset because he thought I was holding something as important as that from him.

I also lost my best friend under crazy issues he had his normal two days off was suppose to be back at work on Sunday at midnight didn’t show up or did he call which wasn’t something he would do.  They called him at home on Monday got no answer which had them calling his Mom to see if she had heard from him and she had on Saturday he had come to see her and brought one of her grandsons to see her also.  I have a key to his house but I live here in Washington and by the time I would have gotten it to them it would have been Friday.  They called his sister and her husband drove to Wichita Falls on Wednesday by the time he got there the police were picking the lock to see if he was alright.  He wasn’t of course he had passed away but because he was unattended he was send off to the Chief pathologist office in Ft Worth.  They got all the stuff they need and then send him back for his funeral and now we are waiting for the outcome of those test.

To finish off my dad’s anniversary of his death was on the 6 February and then his birthday was the 12 February so needless to say today is the 14 February so we are in the second week in February and I have lost 2 people I love and reliving the 3rd one. Not a great way to start a new year enough though I lost Henry last year it was still in the new year I found out.

I’m looking forward to February to end and praying that maybe March will be the beginning of something better.  I’m not sure if I can take any more bad news so soon after the first little bit.  If you know what I mean.  Let’s all pray for a better beginning okay.


Hello my fellow bloggers, family and friends,

Yes I know that I haven’t wrote at least on this site redsoxlady35 for a little while because I have been writing on my ramblingthoughts site lately.  Not because I don’t like this one but because the other site is more for my stories and this is for updates on what is going on with my family, friends and things in my life that I just would like to share with all of you.  Mostly I’m not really updating you on anything because I’m not really sure if I have a lot going on in that area other than JJ which there is no news there.

Now for some weird news we have had rain for two days now and I don’t mean the little bit of drizzle that we have been having lately I mean falling from the sky heavy rain and we are suppose to continue getting this stuff just like we have it until sometime Monday.  Wow and I do mean Wow.   But I guess I can’t expect anything different since I do live in the state of Washington which is called the Evergreen state and it wouldn’t be called that if it wasn’t green right?

Well boys and girls I guess that is it for now I hope you all have a good weekend.

It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.

awesome quote Don. Keep up the great work.

Taking on the Blogging Bullies—Ageism, Fear & Misbehaving “Old” Women

Kristin, did a great job on this blog let’s let her know.

Fashion for the Over 30 Woman Fashion for the Over 30 Woman

Writers have a LOT of power. A LOT. Art often not only defines and reflects a society as it currently exists, but it can be a compass for the direction that culture is heading. This said, there was a blogger who sent me into the STRATOSPHERE on Saturday and had me sharpening kitchen knives. As a writer, I strongly believe in giving credit for the writing, but this is a sticky situation.

I won’t mention her name or her blog for a number of reasons.

First, she doesn’t deserve the traffic I might send her. Being a jerk shouldn’t be rewarded and bad attention is still attention. Secondly, I couldn’t trust myself not to be a troll, so I won’t subject her to comments she deserves because, since I’m older?

I’m classier than that 🙂

Since she’s simple enough to locate on Twitter, FB…
