A Dog and His Man

I hear music in my head, do you? The song that comes to mind was from Jackie DeShannon… 1969… Think of your fellow man; lend him a helping hand, put a little love in your heart. It was just another ordinary day; make a list, run some errands, figure out what needs to be accomplished….

Fifty Years Ago Today
