Sunday Morning Coffee – September 10, 2017

Thanks to the three of you who inquired about missing ‘Sunday Morning Coffee’ last week. The cup was dry and we took a week off to catch our breath. Literally. But it was nice to be missed. So, the Chock-Full-O’Nuts is hot, we are thinking and praying for all those,...

Stayin’ Alive

Bad news this week, for everyone but me, with your Sunday Morning Coffee. Andi Berger didn’t write this. I did. I created a monster. I asked my wife to fill in for me for one week while I attempted to regain consciousness and in the process she became a phenom....
