The Woods

Yesterday I took my German Shepherd for a walk in the local woods. I am not sure how many acres there is to these woods. I know they are a lot of trails through there. A walker can take many different ones once in there. A biker can also go ... Read more

Autumn seems to be setting in for good this time. In early Sept. we had the "false" fall. It got pretty cool and it was tempting to turn the heat on in the house. I don't remember the last time kids started school with pictures having them in... Read more

Someone asked me if I would have a problem if they "stole" my terms for exercise. My answer, steal away! When I was in college and working on my elementary education degree, I was told to always steal good ideas (being careful of plagiarism, p... Read more
