December 22, 2013

The final touches had been made. The house was decorated for holidays.

Mr. Man, Mocha Dad, & The Chicken

March 22, 2011

Note: My teenaged daughter reads my blog. She is actually a fan of sorts. She recently asked me about this story idea, a memory, actually, and when would I write about it. Shout out to Bae for making me “pee and get off the pot” on this one. My grandmother died in the summer of 1980. […]
