The world can be a very smelly place, and humans don’t always improve the situation. If anyone I happen to describe in the following story sounds familiar, keep in mind that the names have been changed to protect the odorous.
Nose to the ground, tail whirling like a helicopter and a fast-paced trot on the verge of a run indicates that my canine companion is on the trail of a coyote while a more stiff-legged trot indicates snowshoe hares are nearby.
There are few more horrifying terms in the world than "blind date." Strong bachelors turn pale at the thought, for their fate is no longer in their hands but in the control of at least one and often two or more other people.
Opening night was a huge success for this group’s play, given that opening night was on a “snow day” from school and the roads were just plain nasty. The play opened to a near sold out crowd. Had weather conditions been better there is no doubt that it would have been standing room only.

For years now I have been trimming my beard with a 1960’s-vintage electric clipper that sounds like a 500-pound mosquito and has so much torque it tries to jump out of my hand every time I crank it up.
