(pssst…wanna buy a puppy?)

You know what’s really great on a beautiful Spring day? Playing fetch with a playful puppy! If you’ve been thinking about getting a puppy, for yourself or the kids, check this out:

Here are some pics of my new puppies, well not exactly new, they are 5 weeks old as of this past Monday. We are selling them of course and they are all papered and have their shots. The email address is ddsjcormier @ msn.com, neighborhood is Fox Farm. They are AKC Labs, all colors, male and female. We are asking $450 OBO.

Update on RNH

An update on Redneck Hippie, whose real name, I believe, is Larry Kralj. My recent entry about his mean-spirited rants on the Tribune forums resulted in a comment here at GreaterFalls from someone who claimed to remember Larry when he was a teacher in Chester, and related a tale about Larry’s behavior during that time. I don’t know if the incident really happened, and if so, if it happened the way the commenter remembers it. My opinion is that there might well be some truth to it, but that’s based only on what I know about present-day Larry and his temperament. Read more
