Never wear sandals to the dump.
Not that I had a choice, mind you – I wore my sneakers early in the morning, when the grass (which grows about two inches overnight) wept so badly as I trod through, my socks got soaked as well.

The puppy flung herself into the surprised officer’s arms.
It all started when Beloved, the puppy and I agreed to help out at a funeral attended by 300 people, including an honor guard, for a female officer. It was held at our church as the officer’s home church was too small for that number of people. Beloved served on the altar, and I was … Continue reading The puppy flung herself into the surprised officer’s arms.
