In 2007, I was back home and had taken the kids on a visit to the museum. I was instantly thrown back in time when I saw this display, as it was exactly as I remember the murder house.

Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
