What do you think? Head held high or in hand-cuffs? How’s he going out?   I had a friend say to me (keep in mind this is two Canadians talking), “None of this would be happening if it wasn’t for the Russia Investigation.” Shhhhh!!! Don’t say anything Uncle Jeremiah, let me set it up.   […]

I have a terrible cold. I think I’m dying. That may be a bit of an exaggeration but since I don’t frequently get sick every time I do, I think I’m dying. I don’t handle sickness very well.   Being under the weather makes every task I must do seem momentous. Tying  my shoe laces […]
