Mark My Words

October is a big month for sports fans everywhere. College football and the NFL are well underway, the NBA is just getting started and for me, the best of all, HOCKEY season is upon us. In the midst of it all, however, is America’s pastime, which seems to take a back seat to everything else in the wide, world of …

Denozo

Hi! My name is Denozo and I am a tiger and white male cat. I’m about 7 years old and I have the best of everything – I’m already neutered, I am declawed on my front paws and am litter-trained. I have never been outside so I am a real inside baby. And, I LOVE my shark house that I’m …

Out and About – Week of October 31st

Welcome to November! This is a very busy month for all of us, beginning with a week from today, Tuesday, November 8. November 8 is Election Day, a day when only the foolish will stay home and not cast a ballot. I don’t care if you vote for a write-in candidate named Bugs Bunny, as long as you vote. You …

I recently realized that I don’t really have a lot of buddies anymore. Oh, I have a buddy that I have lunch with once a week and I have a buddy that I might go with to the Conservation Club every so often, but I don’t have anyone that I feel comfortable with going to their house and asking if …

Out and About – Week of October 17th

Visiting Honolulu is nice, but it doesn’t mean that you have really been to the true Hawaii. There is so much more to see and do. The same can be said for Michigan. Kalamazoo and the Three Rivers area are also very nice, but to experience the true Michigan, I feel you should venture north of Grand Rapids. As a …

Out and About – Week of October 10, 2016

I’ll start this week’s column by trying to get myself out of the dog house. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote on the subject of Living Wills. If I came across suggesting that a Living Will is the way to go, I apologize. I did some reading on the subject, and it seemed like a good idea. I do …
