How Well Do I Listen?

Wesley. He’s our dog now that Bo is gone. Bo was the epitome of “Take it slow and easy.” Wesley is the epitome of “Let us then be up and doing.” When I really want to impress Wesley with what I’m trying to communicate to him, I’ll have him “sit,” and then I’ll take his Continue Reading…

Pragmatic Deductions

I’m strictly an “around the block” bicycler. I keep telling myself that I’m going to practice “go around the block” a lot and then head for a New England bike tour. I need to quit procrastinating and do what I’ve told myself to do. The block gets bigger and bigger! I remember one time when Continue Reading…
