    And the last thing some people want around is a dog and not because of allergies but an aversion to dogs. They are a good idea for people that like dogs but not all of us do.

    Saw "Boxing for Parkinsons" story on TV

    I saw part of a story on Channel 5 out of St. Louis early this morning but was in the midst of getting ready so did not get all the details. It is the first time I have seen it on TV here. It got me to wondering if Reba is still able to do it. She seemed to find it soooo helpful earlier.
