Winners, songs I sing to my dog, my kind of prepping

Monday, Aug 04

First, the winners of last week’s contest are: Brenda I. and Valdi McCoy.  Congratulations, both of you!  (If you didn’t win, no worries.  A new round starts today, and all you need to do to enter is comment.)
Second, yes, I confess, I sing to my Yorkie, Bernice, especially when we’re making one of our weekend mailbox runs.  She sits on my lap and I sing silly songs that I make up as I go along.  (Let’s just say, I won’t be giving up my day job.)  These little ditties almost never rhyme, and furthermore, they don’t make sense.  (Well, maybe “Stinky Dog, Stinky Dog” and “Porky Snorky Yorkie”, but that’s about it.)
Have you guessed?  All my brain power, such as it is, is going into the new book.  🙂
Now, for my version of Doomsday Prepping: While others stash food and bottled water and batteries and get ready to ‘bug out’, all of which are good ideas, I suppose, I’m laying in plenty of craft supplies, the non-electrical kind–paint, paper, glue, rubber stamps, etc.  I figure after a day spent hunting and gathering and doing battle with roaming mutants, holing up in my craft room will be just the thing. 
Plus, I have plenty of books.  And candles, of course, because there probably wouldn’t be any electricity…
Don’t say I didn’t warn you about my brain power.
