Too much of a good thing…

I finally found a way to tie a couple of odd-ball elements into a story line. I heard about a pack of chihuahuas roaming near Phoenix, which is funny all on its own. Around the same time I would see random bits of clothing on the side of the street on my way to work. Sometimes a T-shirt or pair ...
