(Yes, I know that's not where you're supposed to go to rest!) But I'm heading there anyway! While I'm away, I'm a...
OK my dear readers, I'm heading to my old stomping grounds of New York City for a few days of R & R. Now I know that you'll miss me while I'm away. (And who could blame you?!!!) But don't worry. I've got you covered. I wanted to give you something to do so that the Craig withdrawls that will you'...
Cats….who needs them anyway! That’s what I thought until I rescued Scratch from my local animal shelter. He turned out to be one of the best pets I’ve ever had. And this is coming from a dog guy!
