Several days after the bull’s death, a veterinarian beheaded the carcass and took the head to be x-rayed, Williams said.
“There was not a gunshot,” he said.

Acupuncturist gets stuck with the dinner bill, twice

news single (Abby).jpg

DEAR ABBY: I am a licensed acupuncturist. One of my patients (also male) asked me to dinner, and since he seemed like a decent guy, I decided to go. After we finished and the $60 bill arrived, he told me he had forgotten his wallet and I needed to pay, which I did. After dinner he took me back to his house to supposedly show me some recent renovations, and within 10 minutes he tried to kiss me. Fortunately for me, the date ended well enough.
