Featured Blog-Where Have all the Hobos Gone


Hello there!  Allow me to introduce myself.  First things first, my name rhymes with lasagna.  I work a 9 to 5 office job. I have two kids of the boy variety and a husband (also of the boy variety).  We have a dog (once again of the boy variety).  Being the supreme lone female in my house, rules!  My man and boys pamper me, not literally.  But I'd like to think I provide a great mother and wife service to them in the form of cooking and fixing the computer.

I have a lot to say about anything and everything.  Initially my blog was so I could have a separate place to rant and over share so my Facebook friends wouldn't get tired of all my posting.  Turns out, I still post as much as I used to.  Also, on Facebook, I don't share my drawing interpretations of my life events.  Blog posts are better for that.

I would have to say my blog is a humor/life blog.  I try to share stories and put humor into it.  That's not to say I won't also post some humbling serious posts now and then.  For the most part, though, my blog posts will be like a chapter of my mind on that day.  Sometimes my daily mind is a scary, scary place.

 

Not all my blog posts will have drawings, though.  Sometimes I will use real life photos I have taken to tell my story.  I'll also sometimes use photos and Photoshop some silliness into them.  I do try include drawings when I feel like it and it will make my story funnier. For example.....



 


My dog is a border collie and his name is Steeler.  My husband is a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan.  We got him from a working ranch and his doggie daddy was a sheep herder (shepherd?). Sometimes he will try to herd my boys because, obviously, they deserve it. 

I get ideas to post by retelling something that happened to me.  But then, other times, ideas will just come into my head while I am shopping, working, and even driving.  I try to put down my thoughts as they come to me by typing into my Notes app on my phone.  When I'm driving it gets difficult because I have to remember what I am thinking until I am at a stop light or sign.  I need to start using a voice recorder on my phone.  I don't understand my ramblings.  Check it out:



I named my blog "Where Have all the Hobos Gone" because it was catchy and I must admit I have always been fascinated by hobos.  My next dog will be named Hobo even if it is a female.  Or maybe Hoba - the feminine form.
