Sweet And Crumby

There are days you just need a Mai Tai at 9:00 am. You know those days?

Sweet And Crumby

The road to he!! is paved with good intentions. That’s what my grandmother used to tell me now and then. Perhaps it was a hint. Basically, it means that individuals may do bad things even though they intend the results to be good.  I look back and think, maybe I was a little bit of a wild card then. I sure hope so.
