Out and About – Week of April 22nd

Rudeness is alive and well. When venturing Out and About, I witness it on a daily basis. I’m not talking about someone interrupting me when I’m speaking with another person, or cutting in front of me in a checkout line, I’m referring to those individuals who ask questions of someone, when the answer is none of their business. They speak …

Out and About – Week of April 15th

Just think, we have only 364 more days until our taxes are once again due. I can remember having a fear of anyone from the Internal Revenue Service.

Out and About – Week of April 8th

“It’s not my job.” This phrase is heard too much lately. I worked with a person who constantly said this. He was lazy and did exactly what was in his job description. Unfortunately, he was promoted, which didn’t say much about my employer. How many times do you walk past a piece of litter and fail to reach down, pick …

Out and About – Week of April 1st

Thirteen can be an unlucky number for some folks, but for me it’s quite lucky. I’ve been pecking away at this column for thirteen years this month. It doesn’t seem that long. With any luck at all, I’ll keep plugging away for several more years. I want to thank everyone for the kind comments that I’ve received. I’ll do my …

Out and About – Week of March 25th

I think most of us find ourselves depressed at one time or another. Maybe it stems from financial problems, or the loss of a friend or family member. If we’re lucky, the depression is short-lived. I’d like to share some words of encouragement from Barry Palmer, a Past International President of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service organization. Lion …

Sarah

I am Sarah.  The staff say I am a bit shy.  When someone gives me some attention slowly, I warm up to them.  I think I am about five years old.  I am spayed.  I have always been outside so am not very housetrained.  I do like people, I just don’t know what to do with people.  I should not …
