The Great Walmart XBox Adventure

This story begins with some house visitors who decided to permanently borrow a bunch of electronics and other things from my house.

Company Review: Worldmark

I like taking photos and this requires going to scenic places. Back in 2003 I had a good job and wanted to treat myself to something nice.
