Out and About – Week of August 28th

Next Monday is Labor Day. This is generally the last chance to participate in the usual summer activities. It’s a national holiday, so there will be no mail delivery and the banks will be closed, and most importantly, there will be no garbage pick-up that day. As a result, everyone’s trash will be picked up one day later than usual. …

Poppi

They call me “Poppi”. I am a one and 1/2 year old, neutered male Chihuahua mix. I love the people here at Animal Control, and I like kids I have met. However the staff here wonder if I am stubborn, or if I need more opportunity for housebreaking. If I spend time with the staff in the front office I …

Out and About – Week of August 21st

A final reflection on our week of camping. There was a time when sleeping in a tent was real camping. Some still consider it the only way to go. Two days before we broke camp, a family settled in next to our site. I was amazed at how much they enjoyed setting up their site. They had a family-sized tent …

Out and About – Week of August 14th

If you have school-age children, it’s time to start shopping for those school supplies. I’m referring to grade school supplies, like pencils, crayons, notebook paper and three-ring binders. They’re not cheap, so I suggest you check out the ever popular “dollar” stores, and it’s not too early to start shopping now to avoid the crowds. I remember my mom buying …

Out and About – Week of August 7th

If you want quaintness, all you need to do is visit Shipshewana, Indiana, located about a half-hour southeast of Three Rivers on Indiana Highway 5. We spent a weekend there recently visiting with other Lion friends. It was sort of a reunion. We had all gathered there five years ago, when the Lions of Michigan held their State Convention at …

I am friendly and I love to play on the agility equipment here in the play yard. The ladies here say I am partially housebroken. I would like to find my …

Out and About – Week of July 31st

I’ve never considered myself a party animal. I’m not a “teetotaler”, but I do believe that you don’t have to drink to have an enjoyable time. The consumption of alcohol is glorified on television more and more these days. I remember one commercial that showed a lady picking up necessary groceries in preparation for an upcoming storm. The last thing …

Out and About – Week of July 24th

We all have a fear of something. Whether it’s a fear of heights or a fear of clowns, we all have something we will do almost anything to avoid. I can handle speaking in front of one hundred people, as long as I’m speaking about something I am very familiar with, but don’t ask me to sing or dance in …
