Adventures in Foster Care, Part One

I have been relaxing on the couch, watching Dr. Phil tonight. The subject matter of the particular episode I watched concerned a two-year-old child who is living out of a truck with his father.

Anyhow, I gave up on the show during the Terminus season; it just grew to be incredibly silly and tough to follow. However; although I quit the show, I am loving… Continue reading The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye
