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 […]

On The Job -- Tales and Tails

Entering Retirement

by Houndstooth on

This summer has been a busy one that kept us from a lot of our regular routine.  There was also the lack of air conditioning in the car that kept me from taking the girls in the car because I was worried it was just too hot for them.  We took the summer off from […]

Happiness Is A Day Together -- Tales and Tails

The Kiss -- Tales And Tails

Reach Out And Touch Someone
