Go Home Winter, You’re Drunk

OR Why I live in Florida As I watch one more weather report about one more snow storm up north, I’m thankful that I live in Florida. I realize that might sound weird to some folks.

The Day I Ran Away From Home

What do cartoons have to do with my legal case? My son Jake watches this cartoon called Teen Titans Go.
