on. One by one he developed food phobias and dropped to only a handful

Recently when blog-surfing I noticed a few blogs that asked for lurkers

The other day I was driving with my favorite 6 year old back-seat
driver. Out of the clear blue, he asked me if I could take him to
National City Bank. When I inquired why, he told me he wanted to open
