College Football: No. 1 and No. 2 survive scares in week one

It was a scary day for the country’s top two ranked teams, as they both got all they wanted, and more, from teams who were thought to be far inferior.

The kind of slamming that causes rattling of jars and sloshing of leftovers. The pitter-patter of little feet peppered the hard floor beneath them. “This may be really bad,” I told […]

We’re camping! The RV People

The man inside the stall was humming. Loudly. It wasn’t just a casual kind of hum, either — something to distract from the awkward silence of two men using the restroom, one of whom was brushing his teeth and the other of whom was dropping some kids off at the pool. No, this was a […]
