Craig Allen’s lucky dollar
Look what I just got in "change " at the Jersey mega store.
It's been kissed...with luck, I hope.
If I "team it up" with the "fortune" that I just got...
...does that make me even more...lucky?

Beware of New Jersey Coyotes

I expect to see the above sign in a (suburban) New Jersey park...

What long-gone New Jersey stores do you miss?

New Jersey drivers: Happy 4th of July 1976
Happy 4th of July, New Jersey!
Enjoy the day...remember the reason why we celebrate. And, remember those who sacrificed for our freedom!
