Product Description

Denny O'Callaghan is afraid to open his eyes.

He'd been out drinking last night with the guys, and his head throbs, his arms hurt, and he can't remember what he's done.

He opens his eyes. Blood. On his sheets. His pillowcase.

Then he gets a call: his ex-wife was murdered last night.

He desperately tries to piece together what happened. But he can't explain how he got the scratches on his arms, the police want to know about the domestic violence report his ex filed against him, and his buddies say he was raging against her last night before he stormed off on his own.

Right about the time she was murdered.

Take advantage of this introductory low price!

I love your #25, Kathie.

4. Spent 2 months in Haight-Ashbury when I was 18 (1970), just crashing where ever I could find a spot. Had hair down past my shoulders.

Oh!  Oh!  I remember you !!!!!!!   (just kidding, but I was there too)


Quote
25. I am into landscape photography.

Me too.  My current obsession is old outbuildings.  Falling down barns, rickety water towers, etc. Sonoma County used to be a major egg producer, and old chicken barns are considered historical landmarks, so they can't be torn down until they pretty much collapse into the ground.  They're so visually interesting, especially on a stormy day.

8. I trained my first dog to hunt when I was 14. I then spent 38 more years training dogs for K9, scent, rescue, therapy and many other needs. A belgian malinois that I trained for rescue worked the Murrah Federal Building explosion in Oklahoma City.
Wow, just wow all the way around. Ditto on the  Rocky Mountain High Cabin.
Quote
9. I've been to Italy, Sicily, Germany, Ireland, Scotland and Puerto Rico.

**Refrains from making the "I've been to paradise" joke twice in the same thread.** I want to make it to London in the next 5 years, but I have not left  the country yet -- with the  exception of going to Canada for male, um, dancers.

Quote
10. I don't do well in crowds or crowded cities. Hate traffic.

Grew up in Detroit and surrounding suburbs, but I'm a small town girl at heart.

Quote
19. Troubleshooting problems and puzzle solving are joys in life for me, not chores.

::shudders::

21. I own every Jimmy Buffett album, every Moody Blues album and every John Fogerty album. And that is just the start of a huge music collection that my wife thinks is way too much. I disagree. ;)

I ate at a Cheeseburger in Paradise last night. I asked for medium-rare and she told me it would be a little pink in the middle. This would have been perfect. What I received was a raw patty jacketed in lightly browned animal flesh. I think this might be a sign to return to my only chicken and fish eating habits. The teriyaki broccoli was yummy though.

I was also at at a pool party where Margaritaville played repeatedly. I can't tell the rest of that story -- there might be kids lurking.  :D

Quote
22. I am a better cook than my wife. Especially Cajun food.

My husband rocks the salmon.

Nice list.  :)

What was his or her name? Was there a garden involved

Technically, that's a tisane. Do you pull them from the garden?

In second or third grade I went to a petting zoo and made an effort to pet every animal there. The chicken did not want to be pet. After chasing it around, cornering it, and more or less tackling the poor chicken I don't blame it for kicking me :P

What was his or her name? Was there a garden involved

His name was Fluffy.
why yes there was a garden. It was in the shade
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade

A pic of him

Quote

The skin is SK-257 from 3acp. It depicts flowers and a tree so it very well may involve a garden.

Quote

Learn something knew every day, thanks :) I pull them from around the garden if that counts.

Yeah, I would have received so sympathy for that. Having lived a sheltered existence, I've never been assaulted by poultry, but I was often harmed by cats as a child, and as an adult now that I think about it.

As a child, the adults in my life would ask what I'd been doing just prior to the feline assault, and the answer would usually be "dragging it out from under the bed by its tail." So, nobody drying my tears and mercurochroming my wounds.

As an adult, I once had a cat bite me right in the first joint of my middle finger, making it impossible to isolate the injury without flipping off people. This happened as a result of my working in an animal shelter, and every medical professional from the clinic, to the hospital, to the hand specialist wanted to know what I was doing just prior to the cat attacking, and since the answer was helping to euthanize said cat, there was still no drying of tears.

Now, I had it coming to me every time as a child as I was a, what's the word, brat. I don't blame the cat that went down swinging either, but let the record show that I did a few nice things for kitties, too, so it was disconcerting to feel that the only thing standing between me and further harm was a flimsy little Hippocratic Oath.

I love coming back here and reading all these!!

3. Now split time between Levelland, Tx and a cabin located at 8000 ft in the Rocky Mountains. I spend less and less time in Tx.  :D

Hey Mike, we lived in Levelland from 82 to 86! When DH told me we were being transferred to Levelland I asked "where in the heck is Levelland"?

He replied, "due west of Lubbock."
 
I aked, "where is Lubbock?"

"West of Ft. Worth."

To which I looked at him with confusion and dismay and replied, "There's nothing west of Ft. Worth."  ;D

This is so cool I have learned so much about you all...here goes:

1. My nickname is The Chicken which I saddled myself with, friends and family routinely greet me with a friendly "Bawk"
2. All the dogs I have had growing up have names beginning with the letter "J". We have had: Jason, Juliette, JJ, Jody, Jennie, Jamie, Jessica, Jessie, and currently Jasper.
3. I collect gryphons.
4. I have a piece of coal from the Titanic, and I also have one of the life vests used in the making of the movie Titanic, and it is even identifiable as it is the one used in one of the shots where the extra was shot.
6. I plan on getting my motorcycle license this summer.
7. I collect the Disney villains.
8. My life is only complete with a book close by.
9. I love playing RPG video games.
10. I make a point of visiting Salam, MA every 2-3 years.
11. My family gets together for a yearly summer get together where we take a brunch cruise out on Lake Michigan.
12. I have 6 tattoos, my most recent 2 are of the Illuminati Diamond (ambigram of Earth, Air, Fire, Water) on my lower back and the  custom designed "pin-up" chicken.
13.My husband and I ballroom dance, which saved our relationship. We have been doing it for 6.5 years but took 2 years off and have only recently started up again.
14.I like the taste of Lipton Ice Tea pre-sweetened mixstraight from the can.
15.My guilty pleasure are those really sappy movies on Hallmark channel and all the modern day Cinderella stories.
16.I have a funky ability to ignore a migraine when I am teaching (I sure wish I could figure out how I do it!!!)
17.I enjoy finding the different ways to enjoy something. For example, having recently realized that many Hip-Hop music has a Cha-Cha beat, I have started doing the Cha rather than more of the hip-hop kind of dancing to it. Oooo the looks I get :)
18.I love the Poppy Seed Pound Cake at Rosies off of Harvard Square and I have to go there every time I visit MA.
19.I have over 20 started cross-stitch and needlepoint projects and I have only finished 3 in my life.

21.I have dyed my hair every 5 weeks for the last 7 years ( I will never know when I start to go grey).
22.My two favorite recording artists are Cyndi Lauper (especially her Blues/Jazz stuff) and Eva Cassidy.
23.I used to have most of the dialog to both Gone with the Wind and The Little Mermaid memorized.
24.I use song lyrics and poems as a way to settle my mind when I cant fall asleep.
25.I only grocery shop after 10:00 pm so that I dont get aggravated by people stopping in the middle of the aisles to socialize.

Ha!  I don't go that late in the evening, but my Sunday morning routine involves grocery shopping at 6:00AM when HEB first opens.  I can go through my list on autopilot without worrying about a lot of people or long lines.  It usually takes less than an hour and I can go home and back to sleep for a bit.

I took lessons when I was a teenager but was far too interested in socializing than practicing.  I just started lessons again at 45 and I think I'm starting to get the hang of this...  Things are so much better when you get older.

I rejoice for you!

As a contrary example, one which I can mention in public, I tried to learn to play the harpsichord at age 40. I tried for ten years and failed--too old, too inflexible, and too stupid--despite being competent on a one-note-at-a-time instrument....

I wanna play!

1. When I met the Spouse Thingy he was standing outside the library at our high school; he was skinny as a rail and wearing this oversized green down jacket, and my first thought was "Leslie's dating THAT?"

2. Oh yeah, Leslie was my best friend. She was not upset when I was dating him two years later, nor when I married him 3 years later.

3. Yes, we were probably way too young to get married, both only 20 years old. But we just celebrated our twenty seventh anniversary, so it must not have been the worst idea* I've ever had. Plus, it proves my parents wrong, because they were sure we were complete morons, and who doesn't like to prove their parental units wrong?

4. Since we were 99% sure that no one from my family would come to a wedding--the whole "you're too young and you're stupid" thing, we eloped. I got married in gabardine overalls in front of a justice of the peace, but not having had the big wedding has never bothered me.

5. I'll never tell an in-law joke intentionally. I struck the in-law lottery when I married the Spouse Thingy, and love my mother in law like she was my own mother. And I miss my father in law so much it hurts sometimes...I got a pink Superman tattoo in his honor.

6. When people tell me it's unfair that I got slapped with all the things physically wrong with me, I tend to think they're wrong. It may be entirely fair, I don't know. But it does suck, and from time to time I really resent it.

7. I have trained in a couple of different martial arts, and once was a national champion in forms competition. Whatever rank I attained is irrelevant, especially now that I don't even have the skills of the average beginner. I'm pretty sure I could defend myself, though. I can at least kick someone in the knee.

8. About 15 years ago a woman tried to pick a fight with me in the locker room of a fitness center. When she spit out "Don't mess with me. I know karate!" I couldn't help but laugh. She tried to punch me in the face, but I just stepped to the side, and she plowed her hand into the cement wall behind me.

9. I do not feel bad about that, btw.

10. When my son was 2 months old, I took him to the library in his cute little umbrella stroller. While I perused the books, I noticed out of the corner or my eye that the stroller was moving; and thusly did I grab, punch, and literally break the face of the woman who tried to walk off with him. I didn't pursue charges, though. When the dust settled we found out that her baby boy had died from SIDS 3 years before and was the spitting image of mine. Her mind snapped, and she was taking her little boy home. The state pressed charges, though, and she was sentenced to 10 years in the state hospital. I sincerely hope she was out long before that, and has recovered.

11. I tend to despise everything I write, and am genuinely surprised that some people like the stuff that my brain barfs out.

12. Like millions of other people, I have tinnitus. There is always a ringing in my ears, but I can ignore it 95% of the time. The other 5%...it sometimes manifests as auditory hallucinations, especially if my surroundings are very quiet. It shows up as a phone ringing, a TV on in the next room, Dan Rather mumbling the news, auction sounds, and cats meowing. That last one is the only problematic sound, because I can't be sure it's just my ears, or if one of the cats is "singing" for me.

13. I used to be able to carry a tune; not that I was in danger of ever being anywhere near good enough to be professional, just good enough to enjoy singing. Somewhere around age 35 I seem to have lost my ability to sound good enough to sing even when I'm alone (I know this because the cat jumps up on my lap and covers my mouth with his paw when I sing.) That kind of sucks, since I like singing in the car.

14. While I've wanted to be a writer since somewhere around the 2nd grade, I also wanted to be a teacher. My dad convinced me that wasn't good enough for me because he thought I'd be a good business owner, and I thought "Hey! He's smart! He believes in me!" I deeply appreciated that...but I've always regretted not going for a degree in education.

15. I also regret getting a degree in English & Communications. There's not a whole lot you can do with that, not even as a writer.

16. Most of the time I feel fairly stupid. I *know* things, but I don't KNOW things. Ya know?

17. Every time a dentist asks me if I floss daily, I lie and say yes. I don't know why I lie; it's not like he's going to stab me with his poky dental tools. Even if he did, I could grab one and stab back.

18. Thinking about it, any time I go to the doctor and the tech asks me if I'm in any pain that day, I lie and say no. I'm thinking it's because I don't want to have to explain, because the explanation does make me sound like a nutsoid whiner.

19. On any given day, I'd rather be out for a scooter ride than doing most anything else.

20. If I had unlimited funds, I'd probably own 3 or 4 motorcycles, even though I can only ride one at a time.

21. The first thing I read in the newspaper every morning is the comics; we subscribe to the papers we do mostly because of their comics selection. I figure I can read the news online anytime, and I'd rather start my day with happy things.

22. I get very annoyed if the paper guy misses our delivery, and I think evil thoughts about him.

23. I went nearly 15 years without flying out to see my family, and then it only happened because my mom had a stroke and heart attack in one fell swoop. It's not that I don't want to see them...it just doesn't occur to me that I should go.

24. While I hate it when Max meows his little fool head off in the middle of the night, I love it when he has conversations with me. Especially when it's not all "Feeeeeeeed me." "Not now." "I'M DYING!" "Not now." "Feeeeeeed me!"

25. Apparently, I am a little too verbose, judging by how long this is...

*That would be the splitting of 3 liters of whine with 2 of my sisters. We did this 25 years ago and I still can't drink wine...

25 Random Things (not in chronological order)


25.  I believe that we humans have a missing puzzle piece in our hearts, and that dogs have an extra piece that fits perfectly into our empty space.

That's the best! I love that statement. :)
