It’s been five days since the “spring ahead” time change, and I am now just starting to adjust. Not sure why, but I struggle with the loss of an hour.

Chance came to us three years ago as a 3-year-old Lab-Pyrenees mix whose family had surrendered him. We now can’t imagine our lives without him.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Paul McCartney further said, “You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.” If this is true, it’s safe to say we have a great community blessed by people of solid...

So to keep you up to speed on my 2020 bucket list accomplishments, here’s where I’m at after two months. First, just to refresh your memory, the list includes wash a load of clothes at the Laundry Room...

“Sir?” a voice asked from the golf course. “Sir?” My husband and I were sitting with two friends under a canopy by a pool near a palm tree next to a fairway in Arizona. We all turned toward the voice, expecting to see a golfer asking if we’d seen where a ball landed. Instead, we saw five or six...

I’ve never been a guy that would be described as a bandwagon-jumper.
