A Dog Named Beau
Today is the day I first heard actor Jimmy Stewart read his poem about his dog Beau. You should hear it too. It’s beautiful. I can’t post something about dogs and not include a photo of my dear little Diego. His muzzle is a little greyer than in the photo […]
Storm Barra is upon us
