People ask me all the time, "where is Palos Verdes, California?"  This sporty bubble of a town is south of Hermosa and Manhattan Beach just above Redondo.

Spin the wheel, roll the dice, and take a gamble.

While venturing out of town on our summer Abercrombie family road trip, Mr. Chicken Fry had a bright idea. Instead of driving straight through from Texas to Florida, why not break it up!?!?  Seemed logical to me.  He ponied up and offered a two stop shop suggesting one over night stay in Shreveport, LA and… Continue reading Spin the wheel, roll the dice, and take a gamble.
