Blog Reclamation

It's been some time since posting. 

Life required I devote attention to areas other than the blogging world, still strange and uncharted, a place I don’t always take comfort in.

I still shop thrift and have strange thoughts and observations and still shop conventional retail and remain appalled by the products and gimmicks.

The new goal is to write one post a month while my daughter overhauls the look of this site. Blogger is more flexible now than it was in 2008. Right now, I look at this and scream, “Yikes!”

The Golightly's have done many things since the last post.

We rescued two puppies. Luna, named so because she’s just as bright as the moon, is nine pounds and roughly two years old. We suspect she's a toy poodle/Jack Russell mix. She’s been with us two years. Sometimes we’re uncertain if she’s a dog that chirps or a bird that barks so she also goes by the pet name of the Moonie Bird. (The pink moon boots in the photo came new from Goodwill. Pinky swear.)

Laika, named after the first dog in space, is often too quick to photograph. She’s rocket fast and just turned one on the 14th. I put a dab of whip cream on her nose to make her stop for just a second. The vet suspects a black lab and terrier mix.

Nora Ephron wrote, “When your children are teenagers, it's important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.” Ephron nailed it, she always did.

Original plans dictated at least three posts in the hopper before restarting but that’s not going to happen. It’ll be seat-of-the pants, like it’s always been. We’ll have more chat on reuse soon.
