Bows and Frou-Frou

Duff again. Once a month, I am groomed. I am shampooed, my hair is cut and my nails clipped. I literally lose pounds (visually, of course!) when my fur is trimmed.

How Do You Recoup?

After AFC and NFC playoffs last weekend, two teams advance to the Super Bowl. Huge headlines, celebration in locker rooms, jubilation among the fan base. But to have that happen, two other teams also had to lose. Gloom and doom. Dark Skies. A dreary outlook. The Jacksonville Jaguars had a fairy tale season. Blake Bortles stepped into the breech and…
