Humans caring for feathered friends

I enjoy receiving feedback on my columns whether by email or meeting a reader at the pharmacy or post office.  I especially love hearing how they relate to what I’ve written.

Not too long ago I wrote that son, George, and I had set up the outdoor furniture on the deck.  We were oh so careful about opening the awning since a sweet Momma bird had built her nest on one of the ...

New Hope for an Old Traveler

As a public service to my readers I like to go to a place I’ve never been before, spend a couple days, see the sights and file a full report so you can decide for yourself if you want to go there.

He was born with a rare form of dwarfism, but his 3-foot, 38-pound frame was the only thing small about him. In his 15 years, ...

The Tale of the Goat with a Coat

One day as I was walking through my town, I noticed a guy coming toward me walking his dog. I peered ahead and tried to figure out what breed the dog was. He didn’t look like any dog I’d ever seen before. As they got closer, I realized he didn’t even look like a dog. He actually looked like…

A goat.

“Mom, is that a goat?” asked my son.
