That Old Familiar Feeling -- Tales and Tails

All The Feels

by Houndstooth on

You know, human emotions are a funny thing.  Recently, I’ve found myself feeling quite a range of emotions, some of them good and some not so good.  You could say I’ve had all the feels and you’d be very accurate.  Some of the things I felt were results of experiences I had, while others were […]

Entering Retirement
