Wilma: A Tribute to My Beloved Standard Schnauzer

Wilma was not supposed to be my dog.  She wasn't really.  My friends Dawn and John Poyner found her at a yard sale.  Truly.  She was running around some random neighborhood after a week of brutal thunderstorms.  She was wet, scared, muddy and lost.  They knew, because of a coworker, that I had a schnauzer and thought maybe I would want another.  In fact, when I got the call and was asked, "Would you want another schnauzer?" my exact reply was, "If you had asked me at 8 o'clock this morning, I would have said 'No,' but it's four in the afternoon, so why not?"  So, I went to Pet Food Center, where they were giving her a bath, to pick up my new dog.  I walked in and she wanted absolutely nothing to do with me.  But I took her home anyway.  She didn't know it, but she needed me.

Max Headroom is Coming to Paddy O’Beach and Look at My Top 5 Hits from the 80s

I was a 90's baby, so I didn't get to enjoy a single second of the 1980's, but I still LOVE some of the tunes from that decade.  Plus, with Paddy O'Beach coming up Saturday night with Max Headroom jamming some 80's hits, I figured I would share my top five 80's songs.
