    Thinking of All of You Over the Holidays
    November 30, 2018
    I lost my 9 year old son, the youngest of my four kids, 18 years ago.  Writing through my raw grief really helped me.  I have rediscovered my diary after five years.  I decided to join this group.  People grieving need to be surrounded with those that are grieving, too.  I am here to offer…

    November 28, 2018
    Wow - I found the diary I started writing long ago when my youngest son passed in a tragic go-cart accident.  He was 9 years old.  I thought I could write something, but I can't tonite.  I wonder where all my other entries are;  not all entries have showed up on this diary. I am…

    August 3, 2013
     I really can't shop at Kroger's anymore. Yesterday, I was at my local Kroger buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.   What did she think I had - an…

  • Service Dogs, Radio Dogs, or Snakes
    July 30, 2013
     I see a few service dogs in Wal-Mart which I think are awesome.  One day, a customer made a remark about a little dog that was strutting his/her stuff in the store.  It was definitely not a service dog.  I call them "radio  dogs".  The customer was not ple...
