Photographic Evidence Proving October is the Best Month

I was planning to do the usual rambling about something or other today, but when I went outside to play with The Attitude this evening, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the clouds blanket the falling sun.  Thus, I give you reasons #817, #818, and #819 why October is inarguably the finest month of […]

Five Things About Current Events

It’s Monday. That’s the day that follows the weekend. So, yeah, the weekend is over.  And that makes exactly no people happy.
