Thanksgiving kicks off an annual mad riot of festivities. Folks deck the halls for weeks. They plan and prep and freeze-for-later. They festoon with seasonal lights and inflate balloon critters in the yard. They welcome the holidays and gladden hearts. But Grinch that I am, I refuse to compete in the Holiday Olympics. And (of […]

Regardless of the warm temperatures outside, it’s fall in Midtown Montgomery. The calendar says Mid-October to be exact, and that means a busy time of football games, homecoming dances, fall festivals, and Halloween events. The later lets us have fun getting scared and even raise money for causes we love. The Montgomery Humane Society’s Haunted […]

Christmas is upon us, with all its warm fuzzies. We have had our first freeze, first fires in the fireplace, and the baking has started. Tis the season of giving, of making happiness, of being grateful. Of using your heart. Since I write about pets, it is only fitting that my eyes are always open […]

This is that time of year for review and reflection! I just wanted to acknowledge some of small things that make such a large impact on my/our quality of life. Sometimes we just don’t recognize them until we slow down or someone else points them out to us. I received this note recently from a […]
