Attention Seeker

by Laura Thomas

I had survived another day with relative sanity. Dinner was accomplished, and the finish line was in sight—bed-time for my darling children aged 7 years, 3 years, and 6 months. My husband and I skillfully and speedily cleaned up the massacre in the kitchen, with baby Jacob supervising contentedly in his bouncy chair. Continue reading

My Close Friend

210916Hi, my name is Brenna and this is a photo of me and my dog Sadie. She is part Lab and part Australian Shepherd. She is about 9 years old. I help take care of Sadie by filling her food and water bowls, playing with her outside and sometimes walking her around the block. I like to play tug-of-war with her, take photos of her, run around, and just cuddle with her. I like how she can sense when I need friend or someone to talk to or just have a nice silent companion. Plus, I like having a friend to play with outside when no one else can. Continue reading

Bogart: Good evening folks! I’m Bogart D. Richards III and I’m your host. Welcome to the very first ‘Bogart and the Interesting People Show!’ A little later on we’ll have an exclusive interview with hockey veteran Mr. Martin Gélinas. Right now we’re going to read some letters from you, our viewers. Let me just see how many letters we have…. One? Well, I guess that’s not bad for our first show. Maybe next time we’ll have two. Heh, heh. Okay, let’s see what our lucky fan has to say. Ahem:

“Dear Bogart,

Congratulations getting your own talk show. I always knew you had it in you. Although now you’re so busy, we don’t get to see you much anymore. Just give us a call once in a while. It wouldn’t hurt you to pick up the phone! P.S. Will you be home for your Dad’s birthday?” Love, Mom

B: Aha, well. That’s our first, uhm, letter. How… interesting. No other letters? Just the one, Quidge?
