CL the kitten found on Elm St – already spayed

August 3, 2017

+So maybe this sweet girl is about 8 months old by now (pictures taken on July 31, 2017). She just wandered into our yard about 6 months ago and I thought she was the sister of a male we took inside. When they put her under and shaved her, we found out she was already spayed. It is a mystery as to why she was not ear tipped or micro-chipped when she was spayed months ago as a kitten. So they tipped her ear and now it’s time to find who she belongs to. Please call 827 564-2577 if you want her, she is timid and will need to be worked on to get to petting stage, but she is a sweetie!

Input zip code for Chromium-6 drinkn’ water risk

September 24, 2016
Input your zip code using this LINK and see if you are one of the estimated 218 million Americans consuming a known carcinogen. Chromium-6, widely known as the Erin Brockovich chemical, is natural yet rare in nature. However, industrial processes cause Chromium-6 to be unearthed (mined) in unnatural amounts.
If your results from the interactive map (courtesy of Environmental Working Group-ERG) are that your levels exceed .02 ppb (parts per billion), then you have exceeded the protective-of-public-health goal set by California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
The EPA has its own set of standards (100 ppb) which is a starting point where the states can choose to be even more protective (like California). The EPA’s enforceable MCL (maximum contaminant level) takes into account the “costs, benefits, and the ability of public water systems to detect and remove contaminants using suitable treatment technologies”.
Here is a 2013 report/video from PBS NewsHour entitled “How to Get Chromium-6 Out of Your Water”.

REVIEW : Penney’s Tractor time sap ordeal not worth a Yetti

June 10, 2016

Penney’s Tractor
591 Seeton Rd, Mansfield, TX 76063

Screen shot 2016-06-10 at 5.26.38 PMShowed up to buy a truck that was not detailed, no biggie, test drove it, put $300 down went to bank to get cash, came right back and was told…ooops NO TITLE! I gave my husband his 30 ounce Yetti to sip on while he rode with Chad to the auction place last Friday afternoon all the way to north Ft Worth! Then they went to the court house in Ft Worth to do a title change and Chad had no identification (business card or letter head) that he was legit to sell for his own company, Penneys. And so after all that hassle NO DEAL! Dude was straight up in giving my husband back his $300 deposit. I emailed Chad the following Tuesday asking him when I could come by and get our Yetti that was left in Chad’s truck. No response, so Friday I called him said I was on my way and he said he left it back at the shop and would be looking for it. I get there, after waiting (having disturbed a worker to go fetch it)…no Yetti. 

No vechile detailing

No title

No business card

No sale

No Yetti and

Yes wasted time for FOUR DIFFERENT PEOPLE….


Burlington High Salutatorian Bobby Kemp to Attend UT Arlington

June 4, 2016

Cudos to my husband’s nephew, Bobby Kemp (aka Salutatorian), on his impressive run (literally-he’s a distance runner). Kemp racked up awards including the Governor’s Award and will be attending UT Arlington on scholarship.

We traveled from Texas to Iowa to be present for his graduation. Sadly we will miss his Eagle Scout ceremony, but am recording this tribute and await his move across the street from us in the Old Towne Arlington District.

As a reporter/blogger (and proud Auntee), I saw the value in this story for Arlington Proud residents so allow me to digress with a Myrtle Beach picture from long past of Bobby (in the red t-shirt) one summer with my boys…..

Since we’ve had this long distance relationship over the years, I am so thankful we got to sorta see Bobby grow up due his parents consistently “driving the long trip” once or twice a year for the holidays. Its hard to articulate how distance doesn’t matter in the heart but having his physical presence in Arlington is the icing on the cake. We are excited to finally have Bobby here semi-permanently for the next four years as he studies computer engineering. 

Now back to covering the graduation visit……..when we arrived at the Kemp home, we were greeted by Bob Kemp, who was showing off his pet “Hercules”. Here is the video link.

Next we have a pic of my son, Graham Feil, smart phoning/explaining UT Arlington’s degree plan for his field…DSCN6573Then Bobby accompanied us to Snake Alley and the local museum…

Here is the former library, now museum we toured…above is the glass floors my husband fondly remembers walking on as a child.

Here is the FUN video with the surprise ending just before the tassle hat throw.

That evening the local news covered a story related to the graduation and we saw Bobby TWICE…Here is the family version filmed link of the TV coverage.

Bobby hat grad speech

Local TV snap shot of Bobby during his speech which included a (Homecoming King) hat change. His satire was fabulous and I was honored to overhear him at home brain storming and practicing the well done speech.

After the graduation, we watched him open his cards and had a nice family BBQ. Then we honored a few birthday folks and had cake.


Ken checking the weather while Aunt Kaye and Uncle Mike Feil map out the exit from Bobby’s house. My sister & brother -in-law, Karen & Bob graciously put us up (all four of us & one parrot) for four nights as we explored the area and surrounding cities…which is like only TWO towns in the immediate area. This will be a shocker for Bobby to be in the midst of a bustling DFW Metroplex.

….and what follows is some family posing pics (and some closed eye balls) at Bobby’s really cool “glass” house that he leaves behind for higher studies in Arlington Texas….



hmmm Bobby just may have inherited the closed eyes pic thang



Bobby with Aunt Kaye Vance of Kansas City Missouri. Auntee Kaye is a musician (listen here & here) like her son, Gorden Schroeder. She showed us impeccable hospitality for two nights and her son treated us to two in-home studio jam sessions.


Bobby is so loved and we R x-tra PROUD of his accomplishments….now he is in countdown mode to BIG ARLINGTON…the American Dream City….may his dreams come true!
