GaryWords on Garytalk.com.GARYTALK.COM (11/15/2015) – Yes, the boy seems to like fried chicken so much that he can’t think of anything else (see accompanying illustration). Just a minute, I’ll get to that, but, first: Even though we have yet to finish the Garytalk.com upgrade, I feel compelled to write about this experience and make it the first, new, 2015, GaryWords subject at the GaryTalk.com rebuild.

This happened today, when I went to my personal account on Facebook. Little did I know the incident would start me off on the road to sharing this with you, and writing more, here, instead of simply Sharing something that caught my eye to my Facebook Friends.
