Yuck

no more warm southern nights “the frost is on the pumpkin” fall colors paint Picassos if you squint your eyes just right, the dirt of the Midwest casts a wholesome smell, autumn gasps it’s final breath before winter, the ice and snow and slush will surely follow yuck

Christmas Puppy

Ike is a very special hyperactive golden retreiver. He was born on Christmas day, seven years ago this day. Everyone; including Gonzo, Grama, Mom, Dad and the little ones were wearing colorful pajamas and surrounding Christmas tree.

YOU BETTER STOP AND LOOK AROUND

This is my lake and I’m trying to wake my State. My river the Maumee is toxic and we must stand to save it. No one cares about the “Beautiful River”; The Ohio, as the natives called it. We don’t have to deal with “THE OHIO” as all of the waste flows away from us…
