Grope and Vote for Roy Moore!

As Martyman fans know, our hero loves to dress up for the holidays. In fact, just a few minutes ago, Martyman walked into my office and asked if I would take his picture, so he could include it in the thousands of Christmas cards he was mailing out. I was just about to click the […]

Marty’s photos of the day #1658: My granddaughter, Fiona, (age 12) and my oldest rainbow boa, Eve, (age 14) have grown up together.

So when Fiona and family visited […]
