I am humbled. As fierce as the name, “The Fire Breathing Rubber Duckies” sounds; it just wasn’t enough to win us the championship at the Dog-Eat-Dog Trivia Night sponsored by The Pet Project Midwest this past Thursday night. Not only did we not win….we did not even come close to... Continue reading

I got an itch this past weekend to clean out a certain closet. It’s that ‘special closet’ where you put things when you don’t really know where else to put them. Come on…admit it…you have one of those closets too…and probably a drawer or two just like it. Mine would... Continue reading
