Hi it’s Charly, welcome to my page. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or vineyard, and I’m here, interacting with you!
When you buy from a local artist, you're buying a piece of their heart.
I love this. Support local artists and their craft.
And what wonderful memories are created from the adventure of picking out an item that strikes the buyer, as much as it struck the person who created it.
Rear-ended at a stoplight!
Luckily, this was the only damage I sustained, but it never feels good to have someone hit your new car. Especially when that person was being an idiot by not paying attention to stopped traffic at a light.
PLEASE be careful driving and focus on everything around you. Was he on the phone? I don't know, because I was looking ahead to be ready when the light changed, not behind me. I do know that with everything going on in my life, this is the least of my problems, so I'm not going to stress.
Oh yeah, in case anyone is concerned, I'm ok. That's a positive.
No, I do not feed my cat chips.
Turn your back, and look what they get into. For some reason, my cat Marco loves carbs and comes running when he hears a bag crinkle. He'll bat a chip, french fry, or kernal of popcorn out of my hand faster than I can get it in my mouth. I have to warn guests, or they get quite a surprise as they think they will snack leisurely. It's one way to stay on a diet!
No, I don't own them. I saw these boots online and have become obsessed with thoughts of them dancing through my head.
They fit my lifestyle so well.... walking the dogs, going to the beach, strolling the streets of San Francisco at 4am from my parking garage to the KOIT offices, walking to the game after parking 12 blocks away from AT&T Park, climbing up to the 18th row, 3rd level seats.
Yup, I can see they'd fit right in!
I love this. Other cultures respect their senior population. What's wrong with us in the United States, where we value youth over maturity? Even I fall into the trap of trying to erase the signs of aging. Yes, I color my hair and use products that promise to slow down the creation of wrinkles. I'm my own worst enemy in front of a mirror! I know I need to turn my negative self-messages into positive affirmations of appreciation for all I've learned, experienced and survived. I've really earned every single gray hair, every line in my face. You bet I've earned them. I should be proud!
Ok, let's try it. Let's CATCH OURSELVES every time we look in the mirror and say something negative about our apperance, and turn it into a positive message of gratitude for how much wiser we are now. On the spot! Anyone with me? We'll keep tabs and see how this goes!
After his birth, his despicable breeder only saw a defective product worth no $$$, so immediately dumped him off at a shelter to be disposed of, like yesterday's trash. Fortunately, an animal rescue, Leave No Paws Behind, saw a living, breathing precious soul, as did his new mommy, Tina. Vote here to have Josh grace the cover of moderndog magazine, and show the world (especially the breeder) that cleft palates are beautiful!
How great is this, to make a visiting High School senior feel comfortable about touring your college? My nephew Noah, who lives in PA, was seriously interested in attending High Point University in High Point, NC. While on the college tour, they made him feel extremely comfortable, and impressed him so much that after much consideration, he chose them as his #1! But alas, the ugly reality of finances kicked in, and even with scholarships, it just wasn't possible. Still, kudos to the classiest welcome my nephew experienced!
