For T Fedak-He's Been Everywhere Guy

Tonight I happened upon an interesting blog with some dry humor and amazing photos from on the road (along with some FOOs and Kitties) (you just had to be there). So I made my comment and dragged it out in my usual rapid typist manic way and promised this "T" guy that I would post this photo. It goes along with some of his great finds along the "white lines of the free, free-way"--Joni Mitchell. Sorry it isn't larger, but I just didn't want to get too close. A black hole may have sucked me in, ya never know, ya know?
All righty, then, nighty night out there from your

Keep on truckin' (sorry, couldn't resist--also couldn't resist putting in lots of

This is the poor Republican elephant trying to wash all the crap off itself from the presidential campaigning. The shit-flinging is sad and detrimental to the process. You really want to be proud of your country and it's sad when I need to support the Jackasses, but so be it.
So take your shower, little Ellie Phant, and trumpet away your blues.
There's a new dawn a 'comin'!
It is so hard to believe that Election Day is 11 days away!
It's funny some say they are still undecided!?#
I used to sing that ol' Apolitical Blues by Little Feat and that's how I wanted to stay,
but, alas! I had to unbury my head from the sand and go to the polls and have my say.
Let it all be honest and true and let the voters know what they're doing
and there be no talk of "chads" (a word I'd never heard of until
'you know when')
We could all use cleaning up our acts a little, or a lot. I, for one, am sitting here alone, trying to see if any bloggie friends are out there, feeding my virtual (i.e. fake, non-existent) pets and having the half glass of wine that was left in the refrigerator.
I'm waiting for my mate to come home from work, so we can, no doubt,
talk about politics of the day and watch Ghost Whisperer that I recorded for us.
"I got dem ol' apolitical blues...the telephone is ringing, they tell me it's Chairman Mao, well I don't care who it is, I just don't want to talk to him now!"
And another lovely Little Feat song lyric for Ellie Phant:
"There's a fat man, in the bathtub, with the blues...I hear you moan,
I hear you moan, I hear you moan."
Peace Out, my SisSTARS and Bruthas!
Love from your

Vladimer Battina arrives!

I adopted another pet and I want to introduce you to Vladimer, the sweetest bat. Please feed him a fly from the bottom right corner and click on Vlad so he can catch them. Vlad likes to nap a lot (like me) but he knows it's nearly Halloween so Vlad is resting up. Before you know it, I'll have virtual pets all over this thing! They keep me company as I blog. Try and feed Powder his carrot, too, OK? if your sound is up, you can hear him crunch. ;oD
12 days 'til Halloween ... 16 days until a new presidential election! Yikes!
Guess I shoulda adopted Chicken Little so he coulda run around "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" Vladimer just wanted to say, "I vant to make you smile, then move your head a leettle to the left, a leetle more, tip it back just a leetle, and, oh, dear, I vant to apologize, I yust got carried away. So nice to bite, I mean, meet you. Feeeed me, please?"

Happy Sweetest's Day, Bloggies

Tuffy Boy (a/k/a Pumpkin Butt) just stopping by to wish all you Bloggie Souls a very Happy Sweetest's Day. He's one sweet kitty, can't ya tell? ;oD ^;^ prrrrrrrr

Welcome SisSTAR Jan

This is my SisSTAR Jan and I am her out-law SisSTAR (some of us are "innies" and some are "outties" right?) I just sent her my blog with a big trusting heart knowing there might be some things I've posted here that she won't care for, but I'm hoping the majority of which she will enjoy reading. She has just started emailing me and it has made me very happy, so I wanted to invite her to share my web log so she, too, can "Keep Laughin' Honey" like you other bloggie souls out there. She is a really fun person and the best cook ever! I had to put a moratorium on my visits to her house because I already am as big as a barn! (Can't we just order pizza sometime? huh?) Anyway, just wanted to say "welcome" and I hope you find some stuff to be entertained by ... and some things that might make you laugh or cry and to know that I love you. Thanks for being a good sister to my wonderful husband, Jeffrey!
Have an awesome Sweetest Day, everyone!
Sending you my love and best wishes,
SisSTAR Kylita xoxoxo

Meet my new Virtual Bunny

I saw a virtual pet hamster on a blog friend's site so, of course, I just had to go and adopt this bunny. I named her after my last pet bunny, Powder, who was such a little sweetheart. See if you can get her to eat her carrot (if you can get the carrot--tight space, don't seem to be able to move over) and get her to jump around and lie down. It could be that it doesn't take much to amuse me, but it was fun and a diversion from all the "stuff" going on in the world that just "ain't so fun" ... so enjoy your weekends, Bloggie Souls, and know that your SisSTAR is sending you great and wonderful blessings and love ... and HUMOR! from deep down in her Soul ;oD
Maybe you could go adopt your own virtual pet!? KLH-keep laughin' honey xo

Happy Saturday ;oD

On 9/3 - 2:45 a.m. I wrote: I want my goal to be, to live my life in ways that would make my parents and my brother proud of me ... little ways that show my humanity but also ... my Divinity.
On 9/23 - 12:54 am I finally put down in words a happening in my Haswell Household:
My mom kept a little cheap plastic transistor radio on her bedstand. She probably got it as one of her famous "freebies" with every Fingerhut catalog order. She'd blast it away as she'd go to bed and long after she fell very soundly asleep and was snoring like a grizzly, it'd be blasting away, always with talk radio. You know the kind--the call-in shows where folks would ask the host (usually a loud-mouthed man) some question and there'd be some pseudo philosophical discussion over just about any topic--the price of eggs, getting ripped off with car repairs, a soap opera, the latest scoop on a celebrity, politics, etc. These talk shows would rattle on into the night and if I was there trying to sleep, it'd be impossible for me. I inherited my dad's gift of being an ultra light sleeper.
I'd sometimes go in and turn it off and before long, she'd wake up. Too quiet, I guess. She said it gave her "company" -- probably made her feel like she wasn't alone. I know she played her radio a lot when she lived alone after dad died and me and Jeff ... and Dana ... had moved away.
Mom took over my old bedroom when her and my dad weren't able to sleep in their "double" bed together any longer--snoring or waking up too often or tossing and turning too much. She kept my old bedroom until just before she died and the EMTs took her out of her bed kicking and screaming to the hospital.
I stopped sleeping with my husband a long time ago for many of the same reasons as mom and dad. It was ME that snored too loud and ME that slept too lightly and with two different work schedules, we were always grouchy and sleepless. I moved out of our bedroom and into my old childhood room at that time.
During a rare closet-cleaning session, I'd found a bunch of mom's things I'd crammed in there when we were cleaning out her belongings thinking we'd be selling this place to someone else after she died. I found mom's crappy little transistor radio in a basket and turned it on. It worked. No biggie--it was only a short while after she'd died, I guess, so it was feasible the battery would still be good.
But that was over 15 years ago now and I keep the radio in the kitchen cupboard--her cupboard where the dinner plates were stored, same as ours now. I take it out now and then and I'm always wondering just when it'll be that the battery dies. So far, with my husband as my witness, my mom's transistor radio ALWAYS works. I like to turn on AM radio and put it on the Canadian channel where everyone speaks French. I don't understand it but it sounds pretty.
I did look to see that it was a Duracell--that old Energizer Bunny keeps going and going and going.
So ... the battery has to be at least 16-17 yrs old and it keeps working! One thing you can be sure of, often it serves to make me not miss her so much, not feel so lonely, and sorta like I'm in an Alfred Hitchcock movie. I can say I rarely turn the dial to talk radio. I figured it had enough of that.
Those soundwaves keep flowing ... from her heart to mine, just like the little night lights in many of the electrical plugs around the house keep glowing that she left there, needing no switch to turn them on.
Today when I decided I was going to post this writing on my blog, I got the radio out of the cupboard, turned it on softly, not wanting to wake my husband up, and at first thought it was not coming on. Then I heard... "all the things you do ... you're unbelievable ... you're unbelievable!"
All you special bloggie souls who took the time to wade through this, bless you richly and may you enjoy a beautiful autumn weekend. I'm going to! Believe it!
Love from your SisSTAR Kylita xoxoxo

1 Month 'til Election Day

Hard to believe in 1 mo the old fiasco of election day will take place once again. We keep hearing those old Master Debaters and the celebrity of it all--so I am simply posting the best pic I have of my sentiments at this point. I usually seem to be voting "against" someone rather than "for" but that's OK, I'll be sure to be out there on 11/4/08 as my SisSTARS of the past fought so hard to win the right for me to do so and I wouldn't want to let them down. It's so disheartening to know that so many folks I love so dearly are on the opposite side of the fence from me, but that's their right and I love them anyway. Makes it difficult to comprehend one another at times, however, and I'm just sad I only have one vote to cancel out only one of theirs ;o(
This photo is so toadily how I feel about it! ;oD
Love and highest & best blessings from your
