Do we have a monument to the man in town anywhere?

Spread the love

    The Google thing is interactive, too.  Be sure to pull the lever. *grin*

    … although I wouldn’t mind having a special cookie named after me.

      Hope you like these, they were a pain to bake. I kept burning down kitchens. Hope they taste better than they smell!
