EX journalist blog list webpage here . Michael Brown is his name. Imho he’s like the National Enquirer of the Catholic Church news. He basically does anything to make a buck off the church and all the stories are sensational that this is after he retired in Palmbay Florida. He covered the love canal enviro poison story allegedly in the Buffalo area. Has retreats on the sensational and not the real faith. I shake my head to see what he has going NEXT.

Please read this blog entry people. This blog entry tells about my crazy Sunday yesterday that went so fast I didn’t have time for pictures…. It’s about the trouble that our dog Alfie the beagle caused…. We didn’t go to Mass church because of him. #Majorcratejailbreak

I’m sorry folks there’s no pictures to this it got really crazy yesterday on Sunday.

Here’s a picture of the dog at the closed all the trouble.it’s Monday now but after yesterday‘s fiasco, I have nothing to say.

I think it’s funny he can’t even look me in the eye this morning. This is our dog Alfie the beagle who did some pretty rotten stuff yesterday and kept us from going to Mass . He has serious anxiety separation issues when we leave the house& it’s really bad. I think it’s funny he can’t even look me in the eye this morning.

I put the crate at the curb the old crate went to the curb because it’s well, nine years old and the latch on the door caused him. to make a run for it & a jailbreak. It’s well nine years old and the rusted latch on the door caused alfie to make a run for it & a indoor jailbreak.

It all started as a normal Sunday yesterday. Fact, I was ahead by about an hour and a half that is until the crate set me back about all the hour and a half that I’d gained.

Oh yeah, We we’re both was dressed and ready to go & I even put the dog in his crate early. Disclaimer, we create a dog who has extreme separation anxiety issues…And don’t give me any crap about oh you should get a trainer.because you don’t have the dog and you don’t deal with it the way we should deal with it after the vet told us to deal with it in the way we should deal with it.

We crate our dog when we leave the house because he will freak out that we’re not there and chew everything including the door knob. Don’t even talk don’t even think anything after that. You yahoos have no idea what we came home to one time. It’s you all that needs a reality check. We’ve had this dog 10 years. What have you had?

So, we crate our dog or we tried to do so.

That is, until the metal latch on the crate door that was rusted kept us from leaving because the dog got out.

We looked at each other and just said oh come on just this once.

So we’re all dressed& we grab the keys we blocked the dog from the door and make a run for it and lock the door. We were going to church on Sunday morning with an Uber ride.

Uber ride?Yeah, we are saving for a new car so we don’t have an old car with problems . We are sick of that. We’re not gonna get taken advantage of anymore we had the last episode a while back ago and we’re not gonna do it anymore. But this is a sidenote that we’re not gonna give an explanation for.

So, we’re standing in the driveway and my husband is totally freaking out because the last thing he sees in the sliding glass door is the dog chewing on the sliding glass door inside our apartment. I mean the dog was chewing on the middle door inside our apartment staring at us growling pissed off as we’re walking out the door. We had to cancel the Uber ride and that cost us five dollars.

So much for scrupulosity so we just decided let’s just cancel mass today it’s just not worth getting our asses kicked out of the apartment because he’s wrecked some thing expensive l like that. Yes, our last apartment that we lived in we got kicked out because or they didn’t renew the lease because he was a little holy terror. My husband just looks at me & he says “I don’t want to move again .”

So we grabbed our keys and went back in the door and the dog is wagging his tail because well he loves us and he knows he didn’t have to get in trouble and shoe things because he freaks out when we leave.

Meanwhile, I’m thinking you little schmuck. I am the human it’s going to have to go to confession because I miss Mass and you kept me from going to church and you lose your crap because Weeee can’t leave because you have psycho beagle issues.

Twenty minutes later we’re sitting there and saying we got to do something about this so off I go on the phone looking for a crate to buy because we don’t wanna be stuck somewhere and not able to leave because our 10 year old beagle dog loses it when we leave.

I knew I couldn’t do it I just couldn’t do it but since I pay for Walmart delivery every month I said why not.

So, after looking everywhere I got another Uber ride to the local Clearwater Walmart because the crate was only $89 compared to Amazons $ 150. I am no fool and I know what the deal Is.

I sucked it up, mask on grabbed every piece of sanitizer that I had and went in.

No amount of prayer could prepare me for having to go to Walmart. Disclaimer: I don’t go to Walmart it’s all part of being a lawyer‘s wife. OK, it saves me money but it’s just something that’s not part of my daily life. I live in Florida & I shop at Aldie and Target Lowes & Publix.

I’m not a junk buyer but sometimes you have to do what you have to do and save money on an extreme necessary thing that she needs an order to function.

So I get to the section where the new $89 crate is and there’s no one to help me pull it off the shelving.

So, I managed what are the employees name Mike he was very helpful. Wow , this is crazy here with these people here.

I’m not a snob I just don’t do Walmart because of the publication pictures the “people of Walmart. “

So I used my muscles put the crate inside the wagon and then went on to get some toilet paper and other necessary household items. Why not? I’m here.

Yeah, why not, I’m here!

So, I called the Uber ride, grabbed my iPhone with the axillary battery attached to it, and off I went.

When I grabbed the wagon at the entry point there was no sanitizing anything.

And yes, I confess to the lady that I don’t do this that often. She gave me “the look.” And inside I’m thinking “ tell me why I have to be here?!”

I finally found everything, got an Uber home, and rolled up the driveway to where we live.

I don’t have a picture of this either because even if I was quick and able to do so my naughty beagle dog-dog would’ve been out the window. It’s November in Florida and you open the windows finally after having the air-conditioning on since April of the year that you’re in .

My dog got on the bed near the window, stuck his nose outside, and had his paws on the edge of the window ready to jump out the window as I rolled up

If you know our beagle, you will know that if he had jumped I would’ve been chasing him for at least six hours. Yes, chasing him for six hours with A leash and the food and attempting not to pop along from hyperventilating as I did . .

Yeah, I could’ve had a picture of that but I would’ve been seriously in pain this morning after having run 3 miles to catch him if he heads up that the window.

My precious husband had forgotten to shut the door to her bedroom. Alfie got on the bed and leaned almost out the window as I rolled up the driveway.

I can’t make this up!

I also was a no mood or position to take pictures so you don’t have a picture of this you in your mind you have a picture of this and I think that’s better.

Skip the picture it was real. I didn’t have time to take a picture.

I closed the window halfway at least he couldn’t jump out.

Grand save! No dog chase needed.

So I rolled and slid the crate inside the house which is still not put together yet because I actually did have a Sunday . And here I am on Monday!

By all means, I should’ve put it together last night but I was so tired and exasperated after that jailbreak fiasco it was something that really made me tired so my husband ordered Russos last night. It’s a local Italian restaurant joint.I told him I didn’t want to cook. Unless he was going to cook I was done for the day.

The majority of the time my dog sleeps most of the day & he’s getting older he’s going to be 11 in about a month so I think what I’m trying to say here is that I decided to just enjoy his little antics because he’s not gonna be with us forever.

That was my position at 7 o’clock this morning until I walked out with my coffee and saw that he puked all over the couch.

Here I am washing the covers of the couch my dog is not happy about this because he likes to lay on the couch . He puked on the couch this morning. Fun fun fun

Nevertheless, I forgot to put the dog cover on the couch so it’s it is what it is.

I think will try to get it under control today I’ve got to go to work . I have a lot to do today to help my husband’s legal practice.

Why am I not teaching? Why am I not writing ? Let’s just get over this Covid nightmare for the next six months and we’ll take it from there. Being we don’t have a car right now two of us could work together and make more money from the legal practice and stay home working then me wasting gas or expensive Uber rides out there.

Strange as it sounds I would miss this right now where we are at.

A sidenote, when I went to Walmart I went to the Christmas section and it was neat so I was air budgeting myself and how much I would be decorating our small one bedroom apartment here for Christmas.

I have my way, I wanna decorate this joint so you can see it from space. But reality check, we’re going to make it look very pretty…And I also want to say I made decorate my dogs new crate for Christmas.

Snoopy would approve! Yeah yeah yeah I know Snoopy doesn’t have issues.

What next?

Posted in Florida Daily Life, Florida life everyday, must say this, Wimp, fighting ,argument, birth control

New Weekly series =“ My Wednesday,Hold my Orange 🍊 Juice, people. series.” Every Wednesday , I will have several questions to ask. This from a person who likes answers to common sense Qs. This week’s focus asks why some people in church are the way they are….

Hello out there all you NONES. I get it. I get why you’re not inside church .. you don’t want to be bothered with all the micromanaging the bleep lips do to you .

Trust me, it is a full-time job to stay here sometimes. It’s a wonder after this last 4 year Trump et administration situation that anybody hasn’t killed everyone and done a lot of worse off things . I get it. I really get it and all that of the jerks in church—not all of them are jerks — are awful . I throw a blind eye around here because of the heat outside during the summer months . I see too much coming in the side door from outside this area. Another words, the parish I belong to now, is in the middle of a tourist area. We see it all. I see all the nervous behavior when it comes to kneeling and the in ability to not be themselves in an unknown atmosphere where they need to be themselves.

Hold my orange juice, I’ll be right back after I discover why these people are nervous all the time when it comes to praying and saying what they feel in their heart to a divine being?

I went up north about let’s say 12 years ago. During my graduate school time, I saw a lot of nervousness at Franciscan University when it came to churchgoing from too many millennials. It seems that the millennial‘s parents, the baby boomers, which are people older than me, only told them about subjects pertaining to church. It was more head knowledge than heart knowledge. Because there’s a big ditch in the middle where the prickly people live . Pharisees live & over emphasise correct Pharisee living . Honestly, there have been too many of them in the last 40 years. Evidence? Moral majority and Ronald Reagan.

Then I don’t . How could you live life on rap music and stay so superficial and not think deeper than what it already is out there? I get it, I know that most of you wanna piss them all off.

But then I get it , again . There’s got to be some individuality as far as having a relationship with the creator. Got to be some personal discovery beyond what people tell you. It’s got to be some determination after your research.

I’ll give you my orange juice if you piss them off I want everybody to piss both sides of this off and everybody to go out there be there: creative selves.

This is one in the middle of the week . And every week I’m going to put deep thoughts and say ‘hold my orange j🍊 juice people.” What does hold my orange juice mean? I live in Florida and let’s have some common sense about this and examine it further! Let’s burn it off with the heat of the day and summer.

Another words, it’s too hot outside to be stupid. Got that?

This weeks topic is “over the top and bad church behavior.” See the book I’m reading below. A friend of mine on my Facebook group told me about this. It deals with abuse after Bad leaders from covenant communities from the charismatic renewal in the 80s 90s and early 00s. There are some Parish stuff going on that state things about peoples freedom that should not be stated.

Twisted Scriptures is a book I am going to be reading this summer about spiritual abuse.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0310234085/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_J4B50494ZMGJEDSV5MS6

Now there are sometimes you should listen to commonsense from some leaders. But you don’t have to surrender your entire freedom to them for them to make decisions for you.

Add this to how some women walk around church thinking okay I just got a divorce or an annulment so will walk around like a total stupid dumb clock to help people feel sorry for me. Hold my orange juice!

Yeah, hold my orange juice! Why the hell do they look soooo frumpy? A good portion of them are overweight or fat! Why the hell don’t they conduct themselves like they’re more with it?

Hold my orange juice! Yeah, here I go.

I’m not naming names because you wouldn’t know her anyway. About a year ago, I noticed an oversize lady standing in the back of a cry room late to Mass with a Latin Mass piece of lace on her head?! There was no kid and no one else around.

Why? Hold my orange juice!

It’s too hot in Florida to be this stupid.

Don’t even turn on EWTN and get me started. Okay, the whole operation is in Alabama a place where it’s hot. Do not hold my red ultra red hot dog where they’re made up there. Oh yeah, that hot dog stuff, they put ultra red number five inside their hotdogs for some stupid reason that it goes to the brain and makes them do stupid things. You cannot be yourself when you eat that stuff.

You cannot talk in a regular way you have to say things like, “ worldly allurements” and “ I am not allowed to be happy in this world.” Follow all that stuff and you will be saying that in the next five minutes. ‘Cording to them, God doesn’t like you so you have to be like them. Be uncomfortable, dress a frumpy look like them, be boring, make no one want to go to church because it’s all like them and not like you. Oh yeah, play the same movies over and over and over again over and over and over again every single Saturday night at 8 pm. Variety and true creative efforts to them is of evil means because you can’t control creative people like someone surrendered totally to God.

Okay let’s get a few things straight. Real creativity does not look like them. The opposite is truly controlling restrictive and boring to a point. I emphasise the word restrictive because it just seems nervous when they talk . They have to say it a certain way like a script that doesn’t allow for any spiritual individuality that has a real relationship with God. Somebody somebody who has a real relationship with God is really not worried about what other people think, is not hesitant.

Okay, I want my 🍊 Orange juice back. Are these people insane? All they ever do is overemphasise babies.

If they are so worried about babies rights and abortion, why are not more people adopting? I have a challenge for all of my readers out there & they’re probably not connected to church.I like it better that way . Most of those people that over emphasise this life stuff, have some serious mental health background clearance issues that keep them from adopting . So, because you cannot be yourself, people like that overplay correctness and being the Pharisee that someone wants to beat the living bleep out of.

Hold my orange juice because what are they hiding? Get out there and do background checks on them make a list of everybody who’s pissed you off this week about over emphasising everything!

Embarrass them for making you feel small. Do not take any more bleep from any of them ever!

While they’re saying the glass is half more than empty, it is more than FULL!!! How is this? They are focusing on what is not there = negativity! What or why are they are focusing is what is not there? The Creator is still moving and things are still happening, and they’re not in control of Him that is still making things happen.

Hold my orange juice, they are not in control and I have to remind me self that is how it is all the time.

Most of those correct people are absolute stinking chicken wimps that are spineless to the core. They go their entire life by a script that’s not original. They want the adulation of others that is not real love.

One more thing, tell those ultra correct Catholic Pharisees I like to challenge every single one of them to a barefoot hot tarmac contest. Every time they try to correct one of us here for doing something they consider negative or empty, or something that they don’t like, is an extra 10 minutes on 100° F day on a black top barefoot versus us doing the same thing.

One more time: how about a contest Floridian us versus 🆚 up north you you outside hundred degree day in the sweating hot heat? The one who does not flinch with your feet being burnt wins a free ticket to a highly coveted attraction in Florida.

I like to call all of those bloggers are used to troll and challenge them to the above said contest.

Most of those are used to troll spineless noncreative chickenshit who did nothing but complain of how bad the church is.

I’ll put a wager of $500 on the table that most of them will be chickenshit and back out.

A side note,regarding giving my freedom to anyone else for them to tell me what to do, mostly it’s not happening in a micromanaging way anymore. We don’t wear sweaters here or sweat like you want us to-have our sweat micromanaged. My viewpoint of the Catholic Church in Florida is not perfect but I think the heat melts a lot of BS away.

For the record: I would say 80 to 90% of our guys in leadership are pretty decent. The sex abuse scandal of the early 00s pretty much cleaned out the bad , hopefully.

Yeah, I’ve had an attitude about this since I got back from my wedding anniversary. For the last week and a half every single night, I’ve been riding on this.haven’t eaten nothing but Italian food and watching reruns of the Sopranos, which I did not get to see you when it first came out because I was a newlywed in 1999 and doing, other things.

True, the mafia is an evil organisation . But, I have to admire one item of how things are done with them — their assertiveness!

I’ll slurp on that pasta & drinking that orange juice with some of that sangria.

I’m not going to hold your orange juice because your flight or your plane or your car is calling it’s time to end your vacation.

Pass the Italian food, my husband said as he went to the next episode .

I think the orange juice is all gone.

Until next week, my glass is empty.

I went back and edited this my last thought is this: people get real, be real be creative!
