Every day this month I’ve looked at the calendar and said “I can’t believe it’s August already!” Truly, August 1 is the anniversary of MBM – and we’re now in our 11th year.

That’s like being a pre-teen in people years. Hormones start kicking in, self-confidence starts to build. You get fleeting glimpses of your future and start to think about how you can mold yourself to achieve your dreams. Yep, that fits us – we’re growing and learning and refining and achieving.

Of course, being 11 in dog years is a different story. But that reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Groucho Marx: “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” Nuff said.
