0 comments

Back in the early 2000s, I was the unfortunate victim of having to suffer through Southern California traffic during late-day rush hour.

Easter has long been one of my favorite holidays, despite that one year that I got the psychedelic bunny at the mall as evidenced in THIS previously written article. I always enjoyed the excitement surrounding the tradition of dying Easter eggs with my two younger brothers. And contrary to most peoples’ initial reaction – I

There’s nothing more painful than having to move a family of five twice in one year.

More than a decade before Adam West donned his black suit with pointed ears and appeared on television as Batman, my father was born. My dad spent those years as a young man whom everyone addressed as Bruce. If you inquired more intently with my grandmother, you’d come to find out that my dad’s legit

It’s true, our dog is getting a little long in the tooth. The cataracts are kicking in, as well as the occasional incontinence – but he’s one of the family and we love him, so we’ve just got to navigate around a few things. By ‘things’, I’m referring to him constantly being under foot because

Earlier this year, I was able to escape the clutches of a handful of kids and toddlers and make my way west to the great city of St. Louis, Missouri. It was my first time visiting the area and the family at Purina Beneful welcomed me and a few other bloggers with open arms to
