"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Just Because I am a Pet Rescuer, I Am Not a Bottomless Pit of Empathy


I left Nursing to get away from the bottomless pit of needs that was once my job.

I left the Church to get away from a bottomless pit of impossible demands.

I left the Democratic Party to get away from a bottomless pit of misogyny.

Now, I'll be damned if the uber needy humans have not followed me into my chosen "hobby" Pet Rescue.

What is it with me? Am I wearing a "kick me" sign on my forehead?? Listen.... I don't want to be told about all your problems, people! Lay on a couch and pay somebody to hear all that. Either you want to work in rescue or you don't.

Geesh.... us Enneagram 2's need a break once in a while, too.

  1. My ex attracts weirdos. (That probably explains our relationship.)

    If she went to Disneyland on the busiest day of the year and there was one weirdo there, my ex would find him/her.
