Boys’ Nighttime Yardwork Rakes Up More Than Leaves

It was about 8:15 last night when someone rang my doorbell rapidly three times, and then switched to loud knocking. Good grief! I opened the door, expecting some manner of emergency. Instead, there stood two boys, though one looked large enough to be an adult. The smaller, shirtless one did the talking. He said he [...]

Menu Please: Taj Mahal – Delicious Food, Incessant Service

Okay, a show of hands, please: who remembers the Cypress Street Bridge construction? Whoa! A LOT of you. Wasn’t that fun?
