Walkin'

The ongoing story in this space about finding a skeleton in the basement of my office would be a lot easier to develop if I was the victim instead of some mystery person.
At one time or another there were plenty of people in Solon that would have just as well seen me gone.
Roger, the postmaster, would have to be near the top of the list.

Food For Thought

If you’re a mystified male wondering what to give your lady for Christmas, this is probably not going to be much help. Not, that is, unless you’re not out to impress her with something expensive, or any of the other consumer goods everybody envisions when they think of wrapped goodies under the Christmas tree. Those high-end, traditional extravagances, while they no doubt signify some measure of devotion or regard, have little to do with what women really want, or with what the average mate is able to sensibly provide.
