I couldn't remember putting groceries away ever being so easy. I could leave the door open in between trips to the car. I could put bags on the floor without fear of a Cruise Missile diving into the plastic and emerging at double speed with a powder white face full of flour. Nor did I have to chase plastic bags through the house as they noisily crackled from room to room, propelled by a terrified animal devoid of the first clue how to extract himself. No one ate the lettuce, no one crushed the pasta, no one batted the sponges under the fridge.

Living in Western Maryland, I felt I had a sacred obligation to take my boy out and teach him how to hunt. I reckoned him to be old enough, although developmentally he's further back on the curve than Dale Earnhardt with a broken strut. Being a city cat, Bubba hadn't had much experience with the outdoors, or much of a resume for killing that didn't involve arachnids. But when forest-owning friends went out of town and pegged me to housesit, I told him the time had come for him to quit squawking and start stalking.

Girl says thanks to her project horse To the editor: My name is Ashley Lyons and I am 11 years old. In November 2010, I took my first horseback riding lesson. My mom took me to the barn for my lesson. When my mom saw Bubba, she got scared. She thought Bubba was very big, but I fell in love with Bubba. Bubba became my 4-H project horse and we practiced a lot. Bubba and I won 50 ribbons during the 2010 show season. One was for Grand Champion in Showmanship and one was for Reserve Grand Champion Novice Rider at the Ag Expo.

I can't help but notice the Charles Town Races are down to 159 live racing days and plummeting. Pretty soon if someone spots a wayward horse wandering out onto the field they'll send the cleaning out with a broom shouting "Git, you rascal!" Who'd have thought? Rasha the Ferret made it all the way to the Supreme Court. Rasha, you remember, met an unfortunate demise at the hands of the health department after the pet bit a kid and had to be tested for rabies.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column was originally published Nov. 6, 1996. If you can see your breath in November, it must be Mummers' Parade night. That and there's something called a "Woolly Bear Contest" going on. I'm not surprised that we have an actual competition to judge the biggest, hairiest and surliest woolly bear caterpillars. There's nothing else to do with them - at least until someone comes out with a cookbook. I just wish I'd known about the contest back when I was a kid growing up in Morgan County.

BOONSBORO -- As a humor columnist for The Herald-Mail, Tim Rowland is used to being hounded by the public. His latest project, though, showcases the hounding he takes from his pets and farm animals. "All Pets Are Off -- A Collection of Hairy Columns" is a compilation of about 10 years' worth of Rowland's columns, all featuring the wily antics of animals, including past and present pets, and wildlife. He said he came up with the title after his publisher, who happens to be his wife, rejected his first 10 title suggestions.

"I'd like to wish my daughter, Bethany Reed, a happy birthday on July 9. I love you baby. Daddy. " "For safety reasons I think that Hagerstown should have a citywide ban on trick-or-treating. " "Hi. I'd like to wish my husband Matt a very happy anniversary. It's our fourth this year on July 10 and I just want to tell him that I love him more with every passing day. I love you, honey. Nancy. " "Happy fourth anniversary Mom and Dad. Love, Brett. " "Hi, Mail Call. I have a name but the nice family that's keeping me safe until you decide to look and find me doesn't know it. They call me Big Boy. They aren't allowed to have animals but luckily for me they love animals.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column was originally published Aug. 25, 1997. News travels fast in a small town, and by noon I had word that a loud crash had been heard resounding from within my residence. Most people who have been blessed with normal lives would think "my heavens, what if a burglar has jimmied into my home and is at this minute ransacking the house and do I go home, do I call the police" and so on. But for me, only one word wafted slowly across my mind, hanging menacingly like a threatening, black, unseeded storm cloud: Bubba.

Editor's note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column originally was published May 28, 1997. If you have never had the occasion to watch a cat get the hiccups, you haven't lived. I'd never witnessed such an event until this weekend, when Bubba became afflicted. Either he swallowed wrong, breathed poorly or ate too fast (always a logical presumption when it comes to Bubba). If my friend Frank (the Bubba Doc) or any other veterinarians are reading, they might want to consider patenting an inoculation that will give cats a case of the hiccups every so often, solely for the pleasure and entertainment of their owners.

Editor's Note: Tim Rowland is on vacation this week. In his absence, The Morning Herald is publishing previous columns. This column first ran on Nov. 20, 1996. You won't hear my normal sermon this autumn about Christmas decorations going up too early. That's because I already know what I want, thanks to the entirely bizarre Hammacher Schlemmer (home of the $169.95 golf ball) mail order catalog. It's on page 58 and is advertised as the world's "only self-cleaning litter box," listing at $199.

The T-Dog takes on dead mouse I realized a lifelong ambition on the street the other day. I got called "dog. " This happened when I was walking up Antietam Street across from the new courthouse. About that time a brother strolled by and said to me "Hey, what's goin on dog?" Unless you are as chronically white as I am, you probably have trouble understanding how much this can possibly mean to a fellow. To be called "dog" is sort of like being admitted into a fraternity; it is a sense of belonging.

IF you've got kids, you know the drill. It's spring sports season, and between the time you leave work and get your children to the ball field, there isn't always time to prepare the nutritious meal you know they need. So, if you don't want to give them fast food, what are your other choices? That's what one local mom with two teenagers asked me to find out, by holding one of our famous $20 letter-writing contests to ask readers where she could get economical and nutritious carryout food.
