Changes are a-comin’.

Wow! It really has been awhile, hasn’t it? Our Dear Author (DA) has graduated from graduate school (last December actually… in 2015). Now she’s trying to get some experience in the library field so that she can get hired by someone! That’s the fortune of being plastic… no need to work!

Also, DA is moving! We shall try to take and post pictures of our new place once things get settled. So we haven’t been able to travel as much as we once did, and hopefully, things will pick up once again after everything has calmed down some. DA is trying to get involved with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), which could mean more activities for us to stowaway to! Stay tuned!

We had a brief snowstorm a few days ago, and pictures were taken!


Maybe as the winter continues, there will be more snowfall and more opportunities for play!

We shall try to update things as they happen. Hopefully, the absences won’t be quite as long…

We thank you for your patience.

Jasper and Alice


Sorry about the delay in postings lately. It’s a little hard to try and keep up with things on vacation since you’re schedule isn’t consistent and you tend to be tired at the end of the day.

So, I’ll try to play a little bit of catch up. 🙂

Jasper and Alice in Cade's Cove
No nomming on the deer in the Park you two!

So the first day after arriving, we went to Cade’s Cove in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. On the way to one of the cabins, we encountered a few deer (mostly does) who were early morning grazing.

They didn’t seem bothered by the fact there were lots of people around. maybe because they knew they were safe within the confines of the park itself? Who knows?

It was nice to be able to get so close and be able to take pictures of them while we could.

While there are mountains aplenty in Washington, this is a pretty impressive vista also.

It was a bit chilly that morning, but since Jasper and Alice are vampires and naturally run cold anyway, they weren’t too bothered by it. Which is why Alice can wear short sleeves so casually this time of year.


Keep tuning in, folks! There’s more to come!
