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 Great Pretenders…. Or Liars

I can remember playing pretend when I as a child.  I would clean up the little wooden playhouse in the back yard, arrange the kitchen, set the table with dusty old china, and have my mom come over for tea.  I was about 5 years old at the time and the playhouse didn’t have electricity…

Keep it All to Yourself

Everyone is sick and frankly, I’m sick of it. All I hear when I’m out and about is coughing, sneezing, blowing, and snot sucking.  While I want to live inside a bubble for the next couple of months away from all of it, there are places I need to go and things I need to…
