I took a walk tonight with my family. I was trying to catch my daughter to punch her for seeing a "slugbug", and she took off running. I chased her for a minute, and my husband's dog who was behind us started barking and whining. I went back ... Read more

It was a beautiful day for a walk with my dog today. It was above freezing, with a Chinook wind blowing. As I walked, I watched the Chinook helicopters fly overhead from the nearby Army Post. A wonderful sign of our freedom in this country. ... Read more
