Girl’s Trip! Yay!

“I’ve been thrown out of better bars than this!” Dixie shouted over her shoulder. “Me too,” I smiled, recollecting the last time I got together with this same group. The bartender was not overly amused, but I certainly was. And that’s all that matters. Three friends and I recently took a trip to my lake house and my, we had a wonderful time.

Bit-O-Honey Packs an Emotional Punch

Bit-O-Honey is a heavenly, honey-flavored taffy that in five years will celebrate one hundred years on the planet. Thank God.

I’m Having My Dog Spayed

I broke down early. Science, the vet, and the Google forums tell me I should wait for my female dog to experience her first cycle of heat before she is spayed. So that was our plan. But plans change.

The luck of the draw….literally. Minneapolis is a large city and my court serves a populous county. The jury room that first morning had 197 people in it.
