It's raining again.  I am sitting here watching the rain and listening to its beat on the deck roof.  And wherever I go, Sheba has to go, of course. She is happily listening along with me....more

Ummm...so what


A new day of a new month - June.  The morning was overcast and cool.  It was not inviting.  I did not bounce out of bed with glee.  I lingered in the warmth of my bed, hesitating like a shy bride, putting off the inevitable.The inevitable came, of course.  I had to face the music.  I thought it best that I be a sport and do it with gusto.  Life deserved to be treated with respect.  I grabbed Sheba and headed out for an early morning trot....more
