A Fabulously Funny Snicker: Pretend it’s 1995

I was at a brewery the other day.  It was new to me and so was the message written on the small chalkboard behind the bar. Let me go back several years and paint a picture of being out for drinks and wings.  It was the usual Friday night event at the Red Barn.  As…

You Think You Are, but You’re Not

I recently was back in my favorite city for a few days. I planned ahead so that I was sure to see and do everything I wanted to see and do while there. However, sometimes you think you’re going to do something, but then you find out, you’re not. Do you think you’re going to…
