I’m not usually a follower however, If I were to follow in some one’s footsteps Adam’s is a good man’s steps to go along with. He posted a very funny book cover with his name in it. Guided by Winterwoman – here is his post. The trick is to go into, head to the Advanced Search page […]

dramatic day


this morning was full of drama; first, patch is feeling better – you can kind of see it in his stance here – the tough old boy has moxie. {Moxie is a word my hubby insists does not exist and I have to admit Webster agrees with him however, I must have heard it somewhere….} […]
