There he goes, Father Time, marching along. He goes quickly if you don’t pay attention.
I breezed through my anniversary of moving to the Dominican and my second year home-aversary for my Chancie, so I thought I better do a blog for both sites.
I started a writing job online almost three months ago now. While I like it, it’s mostly easy and actually rather boring. Which is perfect. But I have been neglecting my own writing.
June 10th marked Chancie’s second year living with us. I can’t imagine him not being here, although Jango doesn’t always agree.
Chancie, dreaming of fishes
The 16th of June marked my fourth year since arriving here. So many miles between my old life I never expected.

There were wine and tuna for both occasions. I don’t partake in the tuna, they do not care for wine.
I’ve actually lost several friends, but on consideration, I don’t blame them. I understand what it’s like to be envious.
After the first few months, I tried to be very conscious of not being a brat about it all. It doesn’t seem to matter. Like, if I posted something today about the heat, which was 38 heat index by 10:30, people jump down my throat about it.
“Well, you moved there, you can’t complain”. The same people freak out at me in the winter, when they post things about how cold it is, for some reason that’s okay. If I counter with a picture of my January, which is hot, then I’m boasting or rubbing their noses in it.
I can’t say, ‘well, you decided to live there’ because then I’m an asshole. So I just shut up. I had a really rough few months here, and for some reason living in ‘paradise’ has no downside. Even when you can’t work, can’t buy food, can’t get your power turned back on and don’t know anyone.
For some reason, I stopped mattering.
I’m really happy I’m here and am okay with the culling of the herd. I guess I didn’t need them after all.
Fuck them. I have a job now that I’m really happy with it.
The cats are both well, thank you for asking.
Till next time.
I’ve included some pictures for you.
This was my walk today for cat supplies. Mango season!
