This, she thought, would cool my passion for her, that is when we weren’t hitting each other with sticks.

One of my friends gave me some really wonderful licorice to try and then related the tale of how she ate a quantity of it and did wind up with a rapid heart beat.

All things in moderation. Most of the time…

Unless you are volunteering us for the test tasting crew, Peaches! At least we can try to keep our Dogs and Crabs away from the deep friers, right? I just can’t face the day when George ends up on a plate, with deep fried tartar sauce as the complement! Also, no deep fried Cool Dogs!

Also, for those unitiated, here’s Georges FB addy:

Noooooooooooooooooo.

Well, back to the deep-fried cheeseburgers I guess.
