So many things have gone on in the last year, I can barely wrap my head around it. Which is really why I haven't been blogging. My husband wants me to start switching over to another blog format soon and I will be doing that, but for now I will probably be posting here and there.
We rolled out a new company last year, around 9 months ago. Bail bonds has become a business that no longer has stability and my "colleagues" are not necessarily people I want to be associated with. That's not to say all of them are horrible people. They are most definitely not horrible people, but like they say, a few bad apples can spoil the pie. It seems like some of the "new guys" are trying to stretch the professionalism of the bail bond business into something that can loosely be defined. We had planned a few years ago to make a change, but we wanted to make a slow change. I feel like it has been crawling and I am so ready to be out of it.
Where to now? Well, we really wanted to use out brains so we decided private investigation would be an avenue we could explore. So far it's been an interesting road. Last month we closed a missing heir case. I'll try to write a blog on it once the case as been closed in court. Let's just say that it really took us on an archival exploration that jumpstarted my background in research. Now I am tracing my family tree and it's turning out to be a story worth telling. Again, I'll focus on a blog later about that too. I will give you a little hint- my grandmother is probably going to haunt me for digging up some of this dirt and I may just have to take a trip to Patrick County, VA. Aaron looked up the area on Google Earth and immediately started coming up with ideas around going to the county. Saying, "That just looks like it's at the top of a mountain ridge. do we really have to go there?" I told him that I could probably find someone to hunt dusty court records, but I would have much more fun doing it myself. I'll keep you posted.
Well, my feet are cold and I need to get another cup of coffee. I know I've promised this before, but I will be better about posting. I'm kind of gonna have to be. If I want to kickstart the genealogy division of [truth] investigations, I'm going to have keep you interested, right?

Holy moly! I just deleted 671 spammer posts on my blog. I realize I have neglected my blog, but come'on people, really? Do you really need to use my blog to post stories like "Warts and Living Your Life"? I mean, I guess it wasn't a bunch of porno crap. There was a lot of weight loss stuff. Is someone trying to tell me that I'm fat. Well, I know I'm fat, I don't need to be reminded. That's really bad...almost as bad as when a cosigner at the jail asked me when I was due. I chalked that up to her being a crackhead. Thank God for crackheads, because if that had been a sober person I'd probably have borrowed some sheets from the jail and hung myself right then and there.
I have a lot to catch you up on, but I just don't have time right now. I will get to it, I promise. It's the holidays, what can I say?

I think I'm a little disturbed right now. I decided to look at my blog stats and came across a section that shows you where your traffic is coming from and what people are searching when they find your page. Hrm...
"women in handcuffs and high heels"
Yeah, that had a disturbingly high search hits. I mean, I guess I'm not surprised, but I am wondering exactly what they thought they were going to get when they found my blog. When I did the search, I found several books titles that sound like self help books. Scroll down a little farther, and find handcuff porn and "gagged women list". OK, so there's a whole list of gagged women. Wow! I'm scared to click on this link, so for now I'm just going to speculate that maybe this is a place you can put yourself on a list for whatever reason. Or maybe this is a list of women who like to be gagged? I hope there aren't pictures. I am curious, but I like my laptop and don't want some funky virus to invade.
One site brought back a memory of this freak I went out on one date with. "Hose, heels and handcuffs- a great combination". Yeah, if that doesn't scare you this story will. This guy, and honestly I can't even remember his name, tells me five minutes into the date that he has a fetish that involves panty hose and high heels. I'm not going to continue with that story because you all can use your imagination. I'm sure everything you come up with is correct. Needless to say, I excused myself to the nearest restroom and snuck out the kitchen door.
I scroll a little farther and find this- Handcuffs- Profile. And here's the description...
Enjoy submissive mature women who enjoys light bondage in girdle, panties, heels
, bra and nylons eventually gagged and tied wearing girdle or nude.
Submissive mature women? Yet another link I'm scared to click on. Mature is code word for old. So my imagination takes me to a place where grandma is shuffling her walker around in high heels and handcuffs wearing her girdle. Talk about gagging! Yeah, please stop! This is just getting bad. Right below this site is a site dedicated to pregnant and handcuffed. OFMG! Really?
But it's kind of like a train wreck. I kind of want to see how far I have to go down this list to find my blog. I'm already on page 4.
Page 5- Women in handcuffs and diapers...this is getting worse. Why am I being found in this search? Every so often Leann Rimes pops up too, so I'm not feeling so bad.
Page 7- Wife ties me and forces to wear high heels... Enough said. Do I really need to comment on that one? I think my husband would have a fit if I handcuffed him and tried to put one of my stilettos on his big foot. Actually, I wouldn't even think on doing that. He'd stretch my shoe. And if you know me, you know I love my shoes.
I click several pages ahead and it all turns pornographic. I don't know what page this person found me on, but it definitely wasn't anywhere near the front. So this tells me that person was either dedicated to finding just the right page to feed 'his' fetish or he had way too much time to spend on the internet.
Any suggestions on the next search?

Man, oh man, how things change and change quickly sometimes. Forth of July this year was another turning point in our family. If some of you remember 4 years ago, we had a family falling out that resulted in part of the extended family going their own way and us being portrayed as terrible influences. Well, we've dealt with it to the best of our abilities and at some point you just have to look at the situation and realize the things you did wrong. And you have to realize that some people will never grow a set to deal with the things they did wrong. I still wish things had gone down differently, but I can't make anyone change. So this year, we had a visitor from the "other camp" and she made a pretty difficult decision to come down for the celebrations. Unfortunately, her home turf didn't exactly look at the situation in the same light she did and she found herself faced with becoming an adult very fast.
The good news is that even in the midst of all this change and turmoil, she has started seeing things more clearly. While we're all adjusting to the change, life goes on and goes forward. Forward movement is the catch phrase we're using around here. After all, that's what it's all about...moving forward in a happy and healthy way. Looking at challenges as challenges we can overcome and not as obstacles too big to hurdle.
Aaron is working very hard on starting his new company, Truth Investigations. We've been toying with the idea for years and it is so exciting, nerve racking and scary at the same time. I have always compared the decision to work for yourself to jumping off a cliff. Maybe your parachute will open, maybe it won't. This is more like jumping off the back of a boat in the middle of the ocean. Maybe you'll float, maybe you won't. Maybe the sharks will bite, maybe you'll be close enough to land that you can swim to it. Either way, I guess the good thing is that we'll be doing it together- sink or swim.
