    The other day, my son and I were walking out into the garage to get a basketball to play with and we were taken by surprise. To our amazement, there were critters in our garage. At first I thought it was the neighbor’s cat but upon further review it was three baby raccoons.

  • Wishing for the old days

     

    I sure do miss the old days.

    I loved being able to conveniently go into a video store and marvel at shelf after shelf of titles to choose from.

    In the mood for a scare, the horror section provided all the chills you needed.

    If laughter was what you needed, rows of comedy flicks would fill your giggling desires.

    There was just something about the ability to pick up a box cover, read the synopsis and glance at pics from the movie that made the experience greater.
