  • A New Kind of Shampoo

  • The Chase
    on Jul 13, 2016
    The deer in my neighborhood are fearless. They walk up and down our streets and yards in the middle of the afternoon, not caring who or what sees them. Just the other day, I saw a herd of deer grazing in our neighbor's front yard while a tabby cat sa...
