Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy the Cop.

“Oh my gosh, Lucy. I can see that mess from here.” “Mess what mess?” “On the rug. See those black spots?” “Uh. Where do you suppose they came from?” “You know darned well. They came off your feet.” “From that LaBria tar pit out back I’m thinking.” “I’m going to save you by staging a […]

Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

  It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week we were witness to a visit by Spenser Taggett, Assistant District Attorney for Reno. I think we all thought the conversation went pretty well but were left with the feeling that Taggett had a little more up his sleeve than he was letting on. He […]
