Black Dog

I haven’t had a dog since high school. I haven’t had any sort of pet since then either, really. Still, I love animals, and jump at the chance to walk, watch, or feed any animals my family and friends need help with. 84 more words

The Carter Family’s “Can the Circle be Unbroken?” is a distinct and mournful song. It’s adapted from the traditional Christian hymn, “Will the Circle be Unbroken?” which is more of a classic church song singing about how you should put behind earthly pleasures to join Jesus in heaven. 204 more words

Fox in Suburbia

While I’ve seen scores and scores of raccoons take up residence in my suburban neighborhood, I’ve only seen a fox make its way through my area once or twice with my own eyes. 106 more words
