Out and About – Week of November 5th

Many years ago, I was lucky to have a dog that could actually talk. We spent a lot of time together walking and playing in the neighborhood park or in our own backyard. One autumn evening, we sat on the back deck enjoying the setting sun. Rufus, my dog, said that he had something to say and asked that I …

Some of these eateries have unique little signs placed on the wall with hopes that the customers get a chuckle or …

At one time I had three or four empty three-ring binders. There was nothing wrong with them so why get rid of them? A friend suggested that I give them …
