I’m a wee bit behind on my Father’s Day post, primarily because I’ve spent most of the last 24 hours with mom, dad, and the rest of the familia. I don’t have much to add to what I’ve written since last year’s Father’s Day except to say that dad is in semi-retirement now, mainly thanks […]

Of course, I’m a little bit biased Mom took this a few weeks ago on her camera phone of my beloved Muffie girl, who is closing in on the 10 year mark. She’s still as energetic as ever and the “‘hood” – aka the back yard – remains her domain. Funny thing: My dad, who […]
