Good morning everyboomie.
Welcome to Joe's Chat & Chew.
I can't say much about the food, but the conversation is great, stimulating, and entertaining!
It's almost like reading a good book every day.
Well maybe not the whole book, but at least a couple of pages.
Not like watching female mud wrestlers, but still pretty entertaining.
You don't even need a DVR to record it. It's always here. Almost always.
I hope you all have an entertaining day.........to tell us about tomorrow.
