“fox raccoon mix” This was listed under the top searches to find my blog. I wonder, did this person think a fox and a raccoon were able to breed? Red pandas do kinda look like an adorable mix of the two.

Or less adorable, maybe they were looking for a fur coat. Fox and raccoon combo coats do exist; I found this hideous example. A poncho too, shudder.

Or perhaps they were making a hillbilly stew. Or looking for a trendy cocktail recipe. Or searching for an obscure DJ. I’m curious.

I have no idea what they intended to find, but I wonder why any search engine would send them to my blog. I don’t think I’ve spoken once about either of these woodland critters. I haven’t yet mentioned our old dog Suzie, or the origins of her full name, Foxy Suzie Dottie Whittemore Dog. And I haven’t told the story of my sister’s controversial nickname as a baby, Pet Coon. (I swear there is a funny and in no way racist story to back that one up. Guess I had better tell it soon.)

Fox Raccoon Mix Googler, I wish you the best of luck in your quest, whatever it may me.

Well, today it has stopped at least. It has been soggy and miserable for way too long in North Georgia. CNN’s headline best described the situation, “Hotlanta” becomes “Wetlanta”.

I had to work in it last weekend, and yeah, our booth is outside at Lakewood 400. I spent most of my time sitting in the car waiting on brave customers to occasionally appear. I had somehow forgotten my umbrella, and I soon tired of my plastic poncho. I wasn’t too happy.

While I was merely getting annoyed, other people’s homes (along with schools, businesses, highways, theme parks, you name it) were getting flooded.

The photos are surreal.

Someone found a sense of humor in this. It’s wrong I know, but I had to laugh.

Thanks Marissa and Jessica for the pics.

My name in music.

It’s about time a gangsta rap song was named after me! Ha. Oh jeez.

So glad that my name rhymes with “neck me” and is now slang for oral sex. Lovely.

There was already a country song, “Rebecca Lynn” by Bryan White. It is just slightly different in theme. Ha. Sentimental and very cheesy.

Neither is my ringtone. Now if there was a mash-up…

Pork Rinds

My mom cleaned out the cabinet full of junk food and this is about all that is left. Why does any house need FIVE bags of pork rinds?pork rinds

Toilet to Tub

Today I ordered a raised toilet seat for my grandmother. In the last few days she has twice fallen into the bathtub after getting up from the toilet. She is okay, but we are making sure it doesn’t happen again. Grandma is 81 years old but can still live alone with a few items to help keep her independent.

I wanted to tell her that she is only one fall ahead of me. Years ago I did the same thing, toilet to tub, at a party with my fellow waitstaff. Grandma is old; I was drunk. I don’t know which is worse, falling alone, or having a coworker help you up from a spill like that.

My not quite 18 year old cousin (technically my second cousin once removed) brought her two children over to Grandma’s house in Arkansas this Christmas. My mom went crazy for those kids. They do happen to be super sweet little cuties. My parents desperately want to become grandparents. It is not my fault they waited so late in life to reproduce themselves. My cousin’s babies have great-great grandparents. I am not so sure this is a better situation.

My mom barked orders at my cousin for her to let me hold that baby so maybe “the juices” would start flowing. What? What juices? My baby making juices? Eww. I’m trying to keep those all sealed up. That is what birth control is for.

I had to remind everyone that I’m single. Grandma suggested I move down there and find a man. Ahem, no thank you.
