  • I am Canadian-American and will pay mightly if you bring me some Old Dutch Ketchup Potato Chips.

  • My wife and I are reviewing restaurants and places that you can get to easily via MARTA. We call it Dates From a Train.

  • We have five chickens: Gracie, Bunny, Einstein, Comet, and Korra. We have two cats: Roxy and Myster. We have two mice: Momo and Janette. Squirrels sometimes live in our walls and we have not named them.
