Pizza Factory and Fat Cats

Nov 13, 2012

Sometimes in my household, I will get home from work on a Friday afternoon, and my wife will give me that “Get me out of here” look.  The kids will be lying upside down on the couch after watching SpongeBob Squarepants for hours.  It is in these situations that a man has to have a game plan.  For me personally, if I have not given much thought on...
