A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. Lake living w/3 wirehair dachshunds (Oscar the ball boy, Bruno the larger twin, and sweet Sadie who is 5 years old) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than daily happenings and comments.
wanted to point out - after pulling the dog (Bruno) out of the septic tank -- by his neck. Measured Bruno today and that little dachshund is three inches longer. It did help to give him a bit of a waist.
