We moved around when I was a kid. A few years here, then there. We'd stay long enough to get to know the place, but not long enough to become attached. The family moved from sea to shining sea, with some pit stops in between. It was Little Rock, Arkansas which would eventually be called home. They say old habits die hard. I suppose that's just another way of saying new ones are built on rock.


The Sphinx asked, "It walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon and three legs in the evening; what is it?"

Man, that's a tough one Sphinx, let me think about it for a second...

Alright, I've got it. The answer is 'man'! Now Sphinx, before you step aside, I've got a riddle for you. What has two thumbs and is ready for a mid-morning snack attack?


The Sphinx sighed and stepped aside.
