Sat. Nite Trouble

Came across the aftermath of a “disturbance” on Saturday night – 9 police cars at the scene when I got there. Apparently a man was causing some trouble (don’t know what kind yet) and wound up getting tasered by GFPD.


Pancake Puppies!

Enjoyed a mid-day meal at Denny’s on Saturday with my bride and my new sis & bro-in-law. Haven’t been to Denny’s in…several years?…and discovered these tasty and ADORABLY-NAMED treats: Pancake Puppies! Get it? Little pancakes served up like hush puppies! Pancake Puppies! Too perfect.

Congrats

She and I were fortunate to have our father commission us just a few years apart, and he was also the officiant at her retirement ceremony. Best wishes to Jen and her family as they begin a new adventure!
