Hi, I'm Elizabeth (last name, Keene) in Richmond, VA. I might need a more recent photo.
But then...I'd have to change it on Google+, and Facebook,
and Twitter...so nah.

This blog is a disheveled stack of nonsense humorous and (sometimes) unconventional chronicle of my life with Jon Farleigh and Dewi (my two lively Cardigan Welsh Corgis), three (okay, SIX!) rescue cats, a husband and some kids. But really, it's mostly about the dogs...and the cats?

My philosophy: People must break rules in order to keep the lawyers employed.

Words that inspire me:
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope."  - Dr. Seuss
 "The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely."  - Oscar Wilde

"You know how when your mother told you to do something, and you had a burning desire to do the exact opposite?" - Me

I think "About" pages (especially this one) are corny and (mostly) overblown.
I'm slightly (2.67%) off (as in batty).
The Most Ironic Thing About This About Page:
It freaking won a BlogPaws 2015 Nose-to-Nose Special Certificate for OUTSTANDING ABOUT PAGE! OMG!
(That does NOT mean, however, that I think it any less corny and overblown.)

Oh, for heaven's sake, FINE! If you must know, NO, I don't look exactly like that sprightly profile photo anymore; I look like this...


...when I have some water sloshing around in my right ear canal and I need to GET IT OUT!
(No, I do not know how the water got in there, and I did NOT give my child permission to video tape me. She also, by the way, has not [expressly] authorized me to post it [the video] here. Anyway, the point is, I am not right.)

Still want to know more?

This cannot possibly be true, by the way...well, except for the racecar driver part. I might like to be a racecar driver.

  1. How refreshing to see Cardigans rather than Pembrokes! So glad I found you!

    1. Both breeds are special! Thanks for the note!

  2. Love your blog! I can't wait to read more Cardigan adventures...

  3. blogpaws was right - absolutely the best About page ever! I certainly will follow the Chronicles of Cardigans for my regular dose of smiles.

    1. Elkbee10, THANK YOU and nice to meet you! :D I was floored and am honored that BlogPaws recognized the extreme effort that went into crafting this cockamamie ☺ page (really; it was a huge challenge to summarize what this blog is about). I would love for you to follow along!


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
