A David versus Goliath story

I’ll always look back on that day … Continued

What the heart wants

It made no sense for Bruce and me to get a puppy. After all, I’m traveling back and forth to Washington nearly every week, and Bruce has a full-time job. We have no kids at home to help out. And a puppy is a bother – chewing everything, piddling on the floor, crying in the … Continued

Today is Juneteenth
