In the Thick of It … Hello friends! It’s been a hot minute since we last conversed, and I have missed you all. And when I say a “hot minute,” I mean boiling-lava hot. I do not recall a time before now when I was so busy. There are practices, games, services, commitments, appointments, meetings, parties, duties, and so forth.

In our household, we’ve discovered that focusing our attention on one pet at a time suits us best, and currently, that’s a dog.
