About Me

Still an ardent Irish-American Catholic damnYankee Yellow Dog Democrat socialist after all these years. (cue Simon music) Army brat and wife for many years, now have been on the loose far longer than I was married. After my two red chows died, I took in a mini-beagle cross that I named Molly Maguire, thinking she might need a good Irish name like my original real one. Later she got a baby sister, a smooth-coat JRT I named Brigid after the greatest of the ancient Celtic goddesses. My great-grandfather and his son fought for Michael Collins and barely made it out of Ireland one step ahead of John Bull. They slipped over to Wales for new identities and then forward to the States for a fresh start. That makes me second generation of illegal but certainly justified immigrants. There are precious few people to whose defense I fly immediately, but the list includes Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama even when I disagree with him - it happens! - and living Irish patriots Gerry Adams and Martin \\\'Mind Your Kneecaps\\\' McGuiness. I pray earnestly for a united and free Ireland rescued from all official British occupation, with every square inch of alleged \\\'ancestral lands\\\' now held immorally and illegally by the invaders returned to the rightful owners. Irish-only rule for Ireland. No foreign masters anymore! I find it passing strange when Brits chide ME about \'interfering\' in Irish politics!

Even if

... you are dainbramaged, I'm glad you won out. Congratulations!

And you're certainly not too bramaged to know you can NEVER trust management. Period. Don't let me get started on what I saw myself.

EVERYONE! Stinky and Curmudgeoness solved it

Just copy/paste this link directly into your own browser and it will take you straight to the photo on Flickr:


Sorry for all the trouble. But do tell me what you think; does Brigid resemble a Toy Fox Terrier to you as much as she does to me? A person could've sold her to me as that, and I'd have ponied up fast. But it may be wishful thinking on my part, so....

BTW, Patsy Carter's not my real name but rather a pen name I used back in the day. I still sometimes use the handle 'Meanolgrouch' though. Back when Sarah Palin's fans were keeping her kid on DWTS so long by creating sock puppet accounts for extra voting, I decided to fight fire with fire.



Thanks, Curmudgeoness, whether it works or not. If not, it won't be your fault.

Brigid's vet visit & photo (I hope)

In the eight full days Brigid's been with us, she's gained over 6 1/2 lbs. She also got more shots this morning. Good bill of health. Doc agrees with me, she looks a lot like a Toy Fox Terrier. The people who passed her on I guess honestly believe she's half boxer and half rat terrier; maybe they're half right at most. HOW DO THEY KNOW WITH A STRAY???? So we just listed her as 'terrier mix'.


Dang - no picture. That's the Flickr.com #
