A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening 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.
