Favorite Quote

Shortly after I read Pet Sematary I had a nightmare.

It was one of those dreams where you wake up and go through your regular routine and then:

My dog who had died a few years before was in my kitchen.

But I knew it wasn’t really my dog because Sham had orange wolf like eyes.

This dog had cat’s eyes and “Church” was written across his chest white chest in dark red ink.

And then he opened his mouth and I could feel his cold breath creep towards my face and he said:

I woke up screaming, of course.

This has been my favorite quote by King since that night.

The Team Player

Today

I want to be the lady in this picture.

There is something seriously wrong with her

but who cares?

She has a smile on her face

and she is ready to serve you with a smile.

And for that, she will be embraced by one and all

Today

I am ready to be a team player.

Run.

Run

NOW.

Goodnight My Micey

My little Shadow and Hamish Macbeth’s big brother, Micey, died today.

Micey was 16 years old and also leaves behind his brother Darwin who is also 16.

Darwin and Micey were litter mates and have never been without each other.

We love your My Mice.

Mommy.

You’re Kinda Special, Aren’t You?

In his book “Misery” Stephen King’s protagonist, Paul Sheldon has this reaction to Anne Wilke’s critique to what he’s written (I have to paraphrase because this is from memory)

Sheldon says that Annie has just moved from being loyal reader to merciless editor.

Facebookers are VERY loyal readers, we’ve all been there it’s true.

I posted the following meme where it ended up on a newsfeed with pictures talking cats and dogs, what people were in the midst of eating and arguments about how we would be on the one true path if pink salt was involved.

What I got were comments about what could happen if I did this. That’s right I got legal advice from Facebookers with ZERO legal training who think they know what happens to authors who base characters off of real people.

What they said: It’s against the law

Full stop.

If you do it you will be sued!!!

First off the level of ignorance I pertaining to the laws regarding this issue was hiking to the top of Mount Everest without oxygen tanks breathtaking.

Secondly, I’ve been writing for over 30 years and writing online consistently since around 2006.

I know what I’m doing.

I’ll bring this home now.

Shoot off fireworks after midnight, call me fat and ugly but do not try to mess with my creative process or writing.

Or else

Bunnies and Zombies and Eggs OH MY

 

Easter, oh  how I love Easter.

A guy comes back from the dead and we celebrate by eating candy and hard boiled eggs.

Plus, you get a new dress AND if you’re lucky a toy or a nifty gift.

I  love Easter.

It’s like Halloween dressed in a fluffy Hello Kitty sweater and sparkly flip flops.

So.

Here a few Easter treats from My Enduring Bones To You:

Yep. He’s flashing a bunny sign.

Deal with it.

My Sister’s nick name is Esther, so of course we call her ” Esther Bunny “.

Back when were were kids this picture would have given her nightmares…it’s possible it still can.

I’ll let you know.

My dog found the rabbit ears I was going to put on him for Easter.

He ate them.

Good thing they weren’t attached to the rabbit when he did that

I’M  KIDDING

Happy Resurrection Day…don’t let the Zombie get’cha

Did I write

did I create

did I dream

or did I stare into my phone and hide

from

a world waiting to be seen

and haunted

by me?

Today I was a ghost.

And the world was mine
