Getting Scared for Charity

Oh my goodness, if you live anywhere near Leominster and you haven’t visited the haunted house at 190 North Street, you are crazy. A local family has done up their huge back yard into a haunted “house” every year for 10 years…it’s amazing! And it’s actually free…at they end they collect for MDA and/or the […]

Car Rant

My car, a 1992 Maxima with 105k miles on it (just a baby!) is acting up. And the local Nissan garage had it for 2 days, and because it didn’t act up when they had it on a test drive, they said it drove perfectly, and there were no issues that showed up on their […]

Phantom the Wonder Dog

Okay, can someone here tell me how to speak the following in dog language so my pupster will understand me? Please stop crapping on the floor. It’s not nice. The living room is not your personal toilet. And while we’re at it, who taught you to jump over the wall of your pen? You’re not […]
