These seemed rather important “details” that would have been nice to […]

Next Scan MONDAY, Update and Photos!

Happy Father’s Day weekend and a big hello from steamy Atlanta!  I have lots to catch you up on but the reason for this update is a more “time sensitive” one.  It’s hard to believe, but my next scan is Monday!  This one kind of snuck up on me (a good sign, I think) because […]

Smoking Passports

Scan time!! :)
