  • Mother Loki

    The stork of the canine world saw fit to deliver unto us a squirming, writhing, whining, yelping litter of beagles. A half dozen to be precise, although precision has never been my strong suit.

  • ‘Free’ stuff comes with a cost

    I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!
