Crying out from the very depths of the soul, the pain associated with the loss has no equal. When I was about 12 years old, my dad took me and my little dog 147;Blackie148; out to the VFW to fish and play. About the time we left, Blackie started... read more

I usually try and write a blog on Sunday, even when I can39;t on other days. All I can say is there is a conspiracy of some sort afflicting my body that makes writing a blog challenging. I have developed a pronounced shiver or shake in my left arm read more

One of the definitions of 147;tension148; is; a state of wariness, mistrust, controlled hostility, or fear of hostility felt by countries, groups, or people in their dealings with one another. I remember back in the summer of 1981 when my parents... read more
