Little Packages

Hello, my name is Bob and I am a little package addict.

It started in the mid 90s, I think it was around 1996. Amazon was new to the world, it was an oddity. Of course I checked it out but it didn’t do a lot for me at the time. If I wanted a […]

Travelogue – It’s all downhill from here
