Joke of the Week Mike was hospitalized for a few days, and his wife Carol reported that the dog really missed him. "She spends the night at the front door, awaiting your return," Carol said.

"This product – when it's all said and done – will h ave been born in Windsor, developed in Windsor, produced in Windsor, manufactured in Windsor, Weir said.
