A Day in the Life of Bagsby Jones, Bull Dog P.I.

Bagsby Jones, Bull Dog Private Investigator, was on the case!

My road trip to Maine started on an early 4:30 am, Friday morning.  To be honest, the alarm rang at 4:30, but of course I hit it and snoozed another 30 minutes.  Doesn’t everyone do that?

By Land Or By Sea

Daily Prompt:  Tell us about the one luxury item you wish you could afford.

Trump For A Day

Daily Prompt:   I’ve decided to combine yesterday’s prompt with today’s prompt.  Why?   Simply because I had such a great idea yesterday but failed to put it in writing.  Lucky me, it just so happens that today’s prompt compliments yesterday’s prompt.   So, now that I’ve completely confused you, let me explain. When both prompts are…
