Roller Derby

I went to Costco today for the first time. Everybody raves about Costco but I’ve resisted joining figuring I was done with the world of Big Food when my kids grew up and left home. I used to go to Sam’s Club and buy… Continue Reading “Roller Derby”

Swirl’s Chewed Things: Moola

Hello. I am Swirl. I have eaten a lot of money in my time. If I am careful, I can pull out the bills without eating all of the leather thing they are in. I eschew leather. It reminds me of animals. It is… Continue Reading “Swirl’s Chewed Things: Moola”

Swirl’s Chewed Things: Hospitality

Hello. I am Swirl. This mat came on our porch today out of nowhere. Nobody gave me a heads-up. Just all of a sudden it was there, all prickly. Stiff. Fifty stabs. Inedible. All I could do was kill it by making it into… Continue Reading “Swirl’s Chewed Things: Hospitality”

Other Things Can Fall in the Forest Besides Trees

I have doubts about my ability to pee in the forest. This from a person who was once able to carry a bag of groceries in one arm, a baby in the other, and squat down to pick up dropped house keys. Peeing in… Continue Reading “Other Things Can Fall in the Forest Besides Trees”

Swirl’s Chewed Things: Assortment

Hello. I am Swirl. Yesterday, I chewed an oven mitt, a basting brush, and the attachment to the pet hair hand vac. They were all left in my area. I am not at fault. Random objects are disturbing. And it was very hot. I… Continue Reading “Swirl’s Chewed Things: Assortment”

Swirl’s Chewed Things: Sports Equipment

Hello. I am Swirl. The people complain about gas, which I have sometimes when I am sleeping. I don’t apologize for this. Or anything else. Tonight we went to a house with another dog. That made three of us. A young girl dog that… Continue Reading “Swirl’s Chewed Things: Sports Equipment”

Fashion Plate

I want people to regard me as a person of substance but it’s hard when I fall for ordering a dress for ‘older women’ advertised on Facebook. It finally got delivered today after weeks of anticipation. It came in a tiny lump in a… Continue Reading “Fashion Plate”

Swirl’s Chewed Things: Plumbing

Hello. I am Swirl. I used to be a working dog. But now I am a laying down dog. Except at the dog park where I run a lot like the old days except by myself. There are other dogs but they just run… Continue Reading “Swirl’s Chewed Things: Plumbing”
