It Wasn't Me -- Tales and Tails

Blaming The Dog

by Houndstooth on

There are some moments in life that you just have to laugh about.  Last night, we experienced one of those moments and it was too good not to share.  There were no innocent parties, and so no names have been changed. Mr. Taleteller has a habit of blaming the dog in jest when he experiences […]

Remembrance On Decoration Day

Search And Rescue Saturday–SDONA Building Search

Mother Nature Has Lost Her Mind

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here at the keyboard writing about my weekend. After all the weather changes this weekend, I can only conclude that Mother Nature has lost her mind.  Friday was cool and rainy, and Saturday morning came in with a thunderstorm.  We had plans to visit the opening of the Riverfront Farmer’s Market, but the stormy […]
