Out and About – Week of March 12th

By now your clocks should have been reset one hour ahead. Last Sunday was the day when we switched to Daylight Savings Time. No one has ever given me a good reason why we still do this. Maybe it takes an act of Congress to make it happen. Good luck with that. They are way too busy. St. Patty’s day …

Here I am.  Waiting for my new human friend.  My sister and I are available for a new home.  I am the smaller one.  I am about four months old, a tailess, intact female.  The ladies here have been wondering if I am part manx.  I am sweet and cuddly. My docket number is BIO18-000044, at the St. Joseph County …

Out and About – Week of March 5th

When you look in the mirror, do you consider yourself good looking? I think most of us consider ourselves to be rather plain. There are some, of course, who think they’re the cat’s meow. I doubt if Madonna or Brad Pitt consider themselves homely. I’m pretty sure that even Ivana Trump looks a bit scary at 4 AM. Please remember …

Out and About – Week of February 26th

If you follow Facebook on a regular basis, you’re aware of how many times the Veteran issue is brought up. For many years, the problems that veterans faced were put on the back burner. Thank you to whoever it was that put it higher on the priority list. As the current commander of the local American Legion post, and a …

Out and About – Week of February 19th

Last Wednesday, February 14, was not only Valentine’s Day, but it was also Ash Wednesday, a special time in the religious world. It signifies the beginning of Lent, a time when we should give up something we truly enjoy. As for me, I’m giving up lima beans and going to the gym. It will be rough, but I’ll do what …

Out and About – Week of February 12th

I think too much emphasis is placed on going to college these days. It’s important to further one’s education, but why should it be college? There are several alternatives. We are in dire need of tradespeople. There are many trade schools out there where one could learn to be an electrician, plumber, welder, or machinist, plus many more trades that …

My docket number is BIO18-000027, at the St. Joseph …

Out and About – Week of February 5th

I’m not sure how many young folks read this column, but I’d like to offer some pointers to those who do and are looking for a job. I’ve been retired for several years, so it’s been a long time since I’ve applied for any type of employment. During my working years, I’ve held more than a couple of jobs. I …

Jake

They call me Jake.  I am a two year old, neutered, male, lab mix.  I think I am rather handsome with a pretty tri-color coat.  I am friendly, housebroke, and playful fetching balls.  They say I am a “chewer” and dog treats or bones don’t seem to keep me from chewing.  The ladies think I need a place to run …
