Marcy In A Tailspin


Cynthia:  By reader request, I now present a 32 second video of Marcy… catching her tail.



Marcy purrs proudly.

Marcy:  Thirty-two seconds! That’s got to be a world record.

Cynthia:  Good job, Marcy!

Marcy:  Your editing and camera handling need improving though.

Cynthia:  I know. I’m working on it.

Marcy:  Good. Next time… I’ll catch my tail in 20 seconds. Or less.

Marcy presses play again. And again. And again…



Tomball Trendsetter

 Wooly Toggle Coat by Free People 

Cynthia:  Greetings from Tomball, Texas. I am surrounded by two loud paparazzi dogs. They must think I’m a Kardashian the way they hound me all day.  Also, a diva horse who thinks she’s Marilyn Monroe.


Cynthia:  And a cat who won’t look at me. We’ll call her Greta Garbo.



Cynthia:  Looks like I have a little Hollywood here in Tomball. However, I do miss my Marcy and hope she won’t be too mad at me when I get home.

My mom thinks I look like Winnie the Pooh in my coat. I can’t decide if that’s a good thing. I mean, really. How IS one one supposed to feel when they are compared to an old man cartoon bear without pants?

This is the Free People Wooly Toggle Coat. I do love it. It’s wool. It’s cozy and unstructured feeling – like a big blanket. It has a big floppy hood that has kept me warm against the frigid Houston wind this week.

Cynthia:  Those big ugly boots are my step-dad’s from 30 years ago. My bucket for holding horse feed is probably from Walmart. The dogs are from the pound.

Does anyone else have a difficult time leaving their pets to go out of town? Do you think about them? Or is it out of sight out of mind?

Here’s my first attempt at video on my new iphone. Now I just have to learn how to edit.

Cynthia:  Yes. I know. I run like a girl.




Lena’s Learning Korner: Is Kale Getting You Down?

Lena’s Learning Korner- Kale from Wacky Tacky Productions on Vimeo.

Cynthia:  Thank you, Lena, for saying what a lot of us already think about kale with this hilarious video.

Marcy:  I hate kale.

Cynthia:  Well, it certainly is a stubborn vegetable.

Marcy:  I hate it.

Cynthia:  It’s somewhat aggressive, isn’t it?

Marcy:  I hate it.

Cynthia:  It’s intractable. Reticent. Bitter. Okay, that’s it. We’re officially breaking up with kale.

Marcy:  You can break up with it. I’m going to murder it.

Marcy rushes towards the leafy greens sitting on the kitchen counter. Imitating Lena – Marcy ferociously rips apart the leaves and spits them out.

Cynthia:  Noooo! Marcy. Stop. That’s not kale. That’s red leaf lettuce. Or… was.

Marcy continues tearing apart the lettuce and stomping on it until it is nothing but a pile of green mush.

Cynthia:  Ah…  and that was going to be a nice salad for my lunch.

Marcy:  Yeah, well, it’s dead now.

Cynthia:  Sigh..

Marcy:  Why would you have a salad when you could have Friskies instead? (shaking her head) Humans.

Cynthia:  Happy Shark Week, Marcy! In celebration here is a short video of a cat… in a shark outfit… riding a roomba!


Marcy:  You humans are mental.

Cynthia:  Oh, it’s just fun!

Marcy:  Why would someone subject that cat to that horrid costume? Why? Why? Why?

Cynthia:  Because it’s Shark Week and it’s cute.

Marcy:  But what does that mean?!

Cynthia:  Uh…

Marcy:  You don’t know!

Marcy leans in for a closer look.

Marcy: Hey! That shark costume looks suspiciously like Alexandria and Dom’s 2nd place look from Project Runway last week. You just blogged about it, Cindy!

Cynthia:  Oh, you’re right. That is so cool! Good eye, Marcy.

Marcy:  You’re ALL mental.
