RAVE to Hallmark for its light-hearted shows. We need that during this chaotic time in our country.

RANT to the owner of the large dog that would have attacked me, had it not reached the end of its leash. I’m 71. I was carrying two bags of groceries, walking through Kerry Park on my way home from shopping. His dog growled, barked and charged at me, coming to an abrupt halt about two feet from me thanks to the leash. When I asked him to call off his dog, he said it was my fault, because I made eye contact with the dog. You know, I don’t think that was the problem at all.

RAVE to all my neighbors with wind chimes. We love all the different melodic sounds as we walk through the neighborhood, especially on gray, dreary days.
