My sister was a faithful reader of this page. So last time I had a wheelbarrow picture it

the movie. He created the character to show that “it seems harmless and puff and cute—but given
the right circumstances, everything can be turned back and become evil”–Wikipedia

hot light, krispy kreme
Learned about the “hot light” in Raleigh, NC. Krispy Kreme fires up a “hot now” neon light when they birth a new batch of their glazed doughnuts. Natch, they have an app.
