Deep Down

       Everyone likes a good story. Good stories just sit and hang on you, stick with you, and at times provide a little laughter or time to drift into a moment of quiet escape. Some of the best stories are, I believe, how a person meets the love of their life.  Meeting the love of your life is a memorable occasion, which…

Everlasting Gobstopper

Something lasting forever and ever is quite amazing.  In the book Willie Wonky and the Chocolate Factory, the main character was a man who owned a chocolate factory and was looking for an heir to his fortune.
