Out and About – Week of November 13th

We are only into the third week of November, and Christmas is still more than a month away, but I couldn’t wait until next month to pay tribute to Ron Linton.

Today (Tuesday, November 6) is Election Day, so every eligible citizen should exercise their right and get out and vote. I can’t think of a valid excuse not to do so.

Out and About – Week of October 30th

Happy Halloween to all you ghosts, goblins, and other creepy creatures out there. This is one of those days when most of us hide the bathroom scales and magically forget to count calories. It’s time to clog the arteries with cholesterol and anything else that “THEY” say is bad for us. After all, it’s been over a month since we …

Out and About – Week of October 23rd

Autumn has arrived. I know this because I’ve already removed about ten five-gallon buckets of walnuts from our driveway and have made numerous trips to the DPS property to dispose of the fallen leaves that have graced our property.

Out and About – Week of October 9th

With winter just around the corner, I thought it appropriate to share a conversation I had some years ago with a dog we had adopted. With all the dogs and cats needing adoption, I’ve found it more rewarding to visit an animal shelter than a pet store. I’ve also come to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter whether a dog …
