I have always wanted a dog. I would have been happy to have a cat, and now we have one, a cat we love. My Mom let us have those tiny turtles, goldfish, a 10 cm tortoise and a pair of gerbils, but nothing that could mess up the house and nothing that would require […]

Although I appreciate and am grateful for everything in life, it is very difficult for me to just relax and enjoy it. I mean, I do enjoy it, but there is always that tinge of anxiety mixed in, even in my dreams, when I wake up in the middle of the night with a throbbing […]

While in scary tunnel, called The Paw Paw Tunnel, which is in Maryland on the way to Little Orleans, our final stop before returning home, I was reminded of Max’s journey on foot from somewhere in Maryland on Tow Path or Great Allegheny Passage to somewhere in PA.
