I guess every family has running jokes. Right now, in my family, I am the running joke – or more accurately, my inability to maintain a proper butter supply. Let me explain.
This little jewel of wisdom came from my Daddy. One day while we were talking about something, he said, “It is all about perspective. Would you rather spend a whole day fishing or a day digging in the dirt?” The obvious choice is fishing. Then he said, “Well that really depends on if you are […]
I hesitate to type this blog post because I am afraid I will give you the wrong impression of me. I am afraid it will make you think that I am some dog poop obsessed weirdo. That’s not true at all. The fact is I have 4 dogs now and have had more dogs in […]
