Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Because a me-me is easy, I'm short of content, and I like to eat (a LOT).

Lifted from Dad's, Roberta's and the Atomic Nerds' sites.

For a guy who considers himself a Foodie, I can't believe how much of this I've never touched. Many times I've seen it, but was involved with something else at the time.

Some correction is in order.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.The VGT Omnivore’s Hundred:
