Out and About – Week of May 16th

I wish that I were more of a reader. I read about two books a year, which is something that I’m not proud of. I receive several magazines monthly and I usually end up adding them to a stack of other magazines, with intentions of reading them later when I have more time. What I should do is set aside …

Out and About – Week of May 9th

I recently attended a Saturday morning meeting in Lansing. The trip usually takes a little less than two hours, so I planned to stop for a quick breakfast at a diner near the intersection of M-60 and I-69. I usually allow myself a few extra minutes for breakfast, because you never know how busy the place is going to be, …

Out and About – Week of May 2nd

I’m sure it was more than a couple of years ago that I mentioned the fact that Bowman Park, on North Main Street, doesn’t contain a single bench. Lafayette Park, which is also located on North Main Street, across from Hoppin School, has at least two benches. I mention this only because a reader asked me why this was the …

Out and About – Week of April 25th

It’s becoming more and more difficult to tell the difference between the makes of cars these days. Back in the Fifties this problem didn’t exist. Back then there were no KIAs or other many other foreign cars here in the USA. General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler dominated the automotive market. Now, it’s next to impossible to tell the year of …

Carson

Everyone here at Animal Control calls me an orphan. They named me “Carson”. I kind of like that name. They are surprised that I eat and drink on my own. I am butterscotch orange and I like to be held, but soon I start climbing shoulders and scurrying all around. I will be available May 17th – I have to …

Out and About – Week of April 18th

I’m at that age when my list of goals isn’t all that large. I’ve done about as much damage as I can and have tried to live a life that my parents would be proud of. I still strive to be a better person than I was ten years ago, and I do that by surrounding myself with good people. …

Out and About – Week of April 11th

Beware, for the Tax Man cometh. If you haven’t met with your tax person yet, you might want to make arrangements soon. I applaud those who have submitted their tax information and paid what they owed. I also envy those who are getting money back. The latter is getting harder to do every year. I try my best to let …
