My name is Audi. I was once a refined lady but life has made me into a crusty old bitch. I am a mother of two adult phenoms that are wafting through the world like dandelions. I'm married to a jet-setting guy that lives with his bags packed at the door. So most of my marriage I have spent alone.
That's why I gotta put on my 'big-girl' pants, chef's coat and game face.
I don't care if you are sensitive... This is MY site, MY passion and you should probably SCREW OFF if you have a problem with it. I am telling it like it is in MY world because here it really IS ---ALL ABOUT ME.

Saga and Rocky
Reception and Mail Room (on right) and Door Man (on left) AND Resident Garbage Disposal System
Saga looks like a "junk yark dog" but is the aristocrat of puppies in manners-- that is, if you're not a tiny dog, a kid or a passing car, in which case you ARE dog meat.
Now, Rocky, who l literally rescued, looks like an noble pup and becomes the spawn of Satan if there's a squirrel nearby, a bird, plane or flippin' moon rising.
