Out and About – Week of June 12th

I could never be a teacher. Besides the fact that one needs more than a Bachelor’s Degree, a teacher must also have the patience of a saint. Teachers are among those professionals who should be addressed as Mister, Mrs., or Miss, and this would be difficult for me. Whenever someone refers to me as Mr. Stutesman, I start looking around …

Earl

Hi! My name is Earl and I am a male, blue tick hound, about 2 years old. I am black and tan with the blue ticking on the rest of my body. I’m already house-trained and I know how to sit. I try to play “fetch” but it usually ends up that I’m playing “keep away”. I’m a pretty handsome …

Out and About – Week of June 5th

I’ve never been much of a boss. While working for a freight forwarder near O’Hare Airport in Chicago, I vied for a position as warehouse foreman. I was told that I didn’t get the position because I wasn’t a hard-nose slave driver. They used another term, but I’ll refrain from using that name here. I’ve overseen individuals working toward a …

Out and About – Week of May 29th

Everyone has their share of problems. Sometimes the problems are small and easily solved. Other times they are beyond imagination. We’ve all had problems so difficult that we’d wish we would wake up and discover that it was all just a bad dream. I remember listening to a speaker whose topic centered on problems that people encounter and have to …

Out and About – Week of May 22nd

I admit that I do my share of procrastinating, especially when it comes to having to tackle a task I don’t want to do. It’s so easy to say, “I’ll take care of it tomorrow.” Tomorrow is one of my favorite days. People usually procrastinate the most when it comes to that “Honey-Do” list. This is that list that never …

Tim

Hi! My name is Tim and I am a black and white male cat, about 1-1/2 years old. I’m “dressed” to go out on the town with my tuxedo on, but I’d really rather find a nice, secure home. I’m very friendly and calm and love any attention you can give to me. Please come in to give me a …

Out and About – Week of May 15th

If you are a Snowbird and have just migrated back to Pure Michigan from the balmy south, may I say, “Welcome Home”. You missed a pretty nice winter, and according to some, you might have been better off to stay here, rather than risk the flooding and storms of some of the southern states. I received several phone calls from …

Mark My Words – The Kindness Project

Be Kind! Please rewind! I am sure those of us of a certain age remember this sticker that was plastered on VHS tapes rented from video stores back in the day. The theory behind that mantra was that if you rented a VHS movie, make sure you hit that rewind button before returning the video, so the person after you …

Hattie

Hi! I’m Hattie and I am a five year old female tabby/calico mix. I have already been spayed so I’m ready for you. I have long hair and it was matted so part of me has been sheared. That just makes me all that much cuter. I look like a little lion. I also have fuzzy little tufts in my …
