The Road of Life With Merlin

It’s another Mondays with Merlin. That would be me, the head honcho in these parts. You may not be able to teach and old dog new tricks, but sometimes, you can teach an old cat new wisdom. There I was trudging forward with Gris Gris at my heels, hellbent on getting to my goal, the […]
