Granted, times are tough and people are having a hard time making ends meet. It's difficult to fill up your car when gas is $4.00 a gallon. Almost
everyone is suffering these days to put food on the table and gasoline in a vehicle.
At 12:45 in the morning, I woke up because my outside dogs were barking up a storm. I get out of bed to see what the noise is about and realize the
