    A drop in the bucket

    My neighbor had a mighty fine well. He enjoyed very good water. A few years back he noticed dampness along one wall inside the kitchen.

    Can we talk?

    Playing through

    My son-in-law treated me to nine holes of golf recently, at an exclusive golf course close to where he lives. I'm not an early riser but our tee time was second in line for the early birds.
