Vern’s Peace of Mind

Vern looked out the window of the truck, ready to hit the road. After a week of living in the basement of my daughter’s house, it was time to go home. Given all the comings and goings of little children and adults, Vern seemed happy to get back to his homestead where he could experienceContinue reading “Vern’s Peace of Mind”
