Chester’s Walk and Mystery Solved (maybe)

As usual, Chester and I took our walk along the Red River this morning.  Usually, I just take pictures of the river – and I did that again – but today, I took a picture of Chester when he turned around to see if I was still coming.  🙂 He doesn’t like to stop while… Continue reading Chester’s Walk and Mystery Solved (maybe)

It’s Snowing

OK – its the end of November and it snows here at this time of year.  I don’t have to like it – its just the way it is. Right now it is coming down fairly heavily.  At least the snow has covered the mess the city made last Saturday.  I still haven’t heard from the… Continue reading It’s Snowing

Someone’s decision years ago to centralize… Continue reading How Many Days Was That?

A Mystery
