Bitchin’ Camaro

Hank’s been having a wee midlife crisis.  He’s having a tougher time getting around lately: his get-up-and-go has been running a bit rusty and boy, do his dogs get tired. How did this happen? And when? What’s a fellow to do when the years catch up all at once and insist … Continue reading
