Those Days are Long Gone

I miss the good old days when I called a business and a real live person who could help me answered the phone. There weren’t recorded people on the other end of the line who directed me to push a certain button to reach someone who might be able to help me. There weren’t technological…

A Snap and Two Barks

I was in Chattanooga last week.  I’d been there before but only on a pass-through from Nashville.  This was a pass-through too, but I had a little extra time to explore. However, things got a little ruff. I decided to walk from the Chattanooga Choo Choo to the riverfront area rather than take the shuttle. …

The Accidental Chew and Screw

It was a B & B week for me.  No, I didn’t go to a bed and breakfast, but there were couple of incidents that involved boys and a breakfast and I’m still laughing…and hiding. I did some work-related travel earlier this week. A very chit-chatty colleague and friend traveled with me. We spent a…
