Juno Belle Starling ~August 2007-February 20, 2020
Need a little a distraction from reality? Here is an unpolished collection the weird, the silly and the sometimes-serious at Wild Dingo. It's a blog about nothing, yet about everything. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll even learn something. But this is not a writing sample. It's just a place to kick back and crack open a cool Core's 16-ouncer and lose yourself in the kooky.

"Your project is guaranteed to meet superior Siberian standards or I will fatally masticate it. You have my "woo" on that!"
