About a book store and style in the 40’s

Tweet Not too long ago it was my dad’s birthday and we decided to do something other then just stay at home. So we went out for dinner and then we went driving around, exploring new places around the area where we live.

Tweet I remember a time when I would post something here on my blog every day…. What happened to my ability to do that??
