It’s been a while since I’ve addressed ‘Rona here…or anything here. Lately, I write for the same reason a dog scratches the back of his ear: there’s an itch. So, bear with me while I scratch a bit. Here are some of my current observations about this whole ‘Rona situation. One: ‘Rona is still notContinue reading “Back of the Dog’s Ear”
Starting this Sunday we’re going to be spending our time in the adult class on the subject of marriage through a study called, “What Did You Expect?
