A real possibility of abduction

Sharp, Lacey.jpg

Last Monday was like any other Monday. After having attended an extremely beautiful and heartwarming wedding, I spent Monday — my day off — resting, recuperating and getting ready for the workweek ahead.
I had the luxury of enjoying the day, to do what ever I wanted. In other words, I was enjoying my freedom. But unlike three women in Cleveland, Ohio, I had been able to enjoy my freedom for more than a decade, while they remained as captives to a demented, evil human being. But on May 6, their nightmare, somewhat, came to an end.

Boots is an easy going big, loveable guy. Boots gets along with everyone, is quiet and big. This big handsome guy is about 15 months old and would make a perfect family pet if you have children. Light golden in color, he is a Golden Retriever/Lab mix, neutered and up to date on shots. He was found as a pup with his siblings at a dumpster, starving and scared. He has been at the shelter for a year and he would really like a family to play with and run in the yard.

Patton is all about competing

Dykes can relate with 49ers learning about Quinton
051213 PATTON RECEIVES C.jpg

For any tips on how to deal with Quinton Patton, Head Coach Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers may want to file away Sonny Dykes’ smartphone number.
In fact, there’s a good chance a connection has already been made, given that Harbaugh has all but had to “run off” his ever-energetic fourth-round draft choice from Louisiana Tech University.
But that’s in a good way, for sure, because Patton is the type of incoming rookie that an NFL staff would gladly deal with during the maturation period.
