A Holiday Toast

Imagine a place that tingles your soul, Like the sweet taste of an orange popsicle, After singing the blues. Delight in a wonderland that rains honey, Over carnivals of fruit, While echoes of melodies awaken the ghost. Then celebrate the symphony, It plays to the sky, And dance, just dance, to the rhythm of your […]

Hello Autumn! We've Been Expecting Woo!

Benjamin Franklin was wrong. In addition to death and taxes, there's one other thing that's certain in life, and that's change. There's been a lot of change here at Casa Wild Dingo.

After receiving their fair share of my buttered toast, Juno starts to goose me. "It's time to go walkies, now," she tells me with a sparkle in […]

This Side of Normal

  I've been thinking a lot about returning to normal lately and constantly wondering what normal will be for me in recovery. After all, I haven't really been "normal" in a decade. I think the first thing people wonder about someone who's gone undiagnosed with a chronic disease for as long as I have, or […]

Dingo Bells

Long time readers will recognize this month's masthead from December 2009. I took a short cut and repeated one of my favorite cracker and criminal holiday adventures. As usual, Lyme and Co-infections company has left little in the bank for creativity. But the good news is, I'm getting closer to recovery. I swear internet. With […]

Adventures in Dogcations

This year, we were able to get away for a few days for our anniversary. I've been wanting to go up North to a dog friendly environment and hike some headlands and river trails. Last year I was too sick to even sit at my computer and this year, though I'm still on plenty of drugs […]
