The Writer of all Wrongs-AK
Faith loathed going to the lake with her three sorority sisters. It had been nearly two years already. She didn't mind paying her respects to the dead; taking the time, to pay homage. But, her sorority sisters treated it all like it was a celebration; someone had died for Pete's sake.
The Monster Bash: It's my party and I'll Jam like I want to! (Ultimate Halloween Playlist)

For Chico, with love.
I regret deeply, that I have no pictures I could upload of Chico. He looks just like the dog, seen in the photo, above. An uncanny resemblance; more loyal, that any man has been to me, in my lifetime. I have always had a soft spot for dogs. My first: a German Shepard puppy we called "Hutch". I'll never forget his coat: straight, brown, and shiny. I'm 41 years old, and I still have long term memories of him. We were good friends. He, was my first friend.

I even heard, that back in the day, people in cars actually paid attention to people walking.
