Episode 8, re-cap

  Alright.  Dining room repurposing challenge. So we woke up and got the call from Vern that we were to go to brunch.  hmm…. strange, but ok. i do love brunch almost as much as ‘linner’ or ‘dunch’.   (I also love ligers and tigons a little too much)  I’m into being out and being… Read More …
