Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the mornin’ brings

Lots of workouts will be going down to keep up with my matching sugar-clad cousin.

Katzens are notorious for a strong dessert affinity.

To paraphrase Eminem, “if you don’t believe me, ask ma dahhhd.”

Have you been to Atlanta? Where should I go?
