Neighbor chat The other day I was unloading groceries from my car and my neighbor walked by with her dog and started to chat. She lives a few doors down and her dog is friends with my dog Winston.

A Strange Request My son Jake asked me a strange request last week …. “Can I get a fish?” Every since he turned 10, Jake has been asking for more responsibilities. Just this weekend, he asked me how to make his own breakfast. Trust me, I’m all for it. That’s one thing less on my … Continue reading
