  • Head and Tails: Company Dog

    We ended up in 1997 – not the 21st century, but close. At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model.

  • Pearls from God

    I have always loved this simple story I found on the internet. I don’t know the author or even if it is true, but it has an important truth to tell.

Can I have them?”
