Walkin'

It’s finally happened.
For the first time in over 10 years I’ve headed out on a walk without Buzz.
Just two years ago the hound would beg to go. If for some reason I was home and we didn’t walk, he’d follow me around and give me long hard stares, letting out an occasional whine until he got his way.

JOHNSON COUNTY– Wondering what to do with your leftover Christmas trees?
Bring them to swim with the fishes.

Clear your trees of decoration– especially tinsel– and bring them to the Johnson County Heritage Trust Belgum Grove property, four miles west of Hills, on the south side of 500th St. (County Road F62).
