The Rooster Rancher

by Houndstooth on

A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with my dad and he was trying to remember how many Border Collies we had through the years.  My dad had a Border Collie as a kid growing up on the farm.  When I was a kid, I suspect he wanted me to have the same experience. […]

Come To The Dark Side

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was a little unusual for us in our routine.  We needed a new tire put on my car, so Mr. Taleteller drove me to work and picked me up, and sometime in between, the tire change was done.  There was also a need to talk to my dad, so we stopped by his house […]
