By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Blogging

Hi. Remember me? Probably not, but that’s okay. It’s been nearly 18 months since my last contribution here at The Donk. For that, I apologize to you — the reader — and even moreso to our benevolent host, Mister Gardner. Since my last post, I have gone from being a stay-at-home-dad/pajama-clad-political-blogger to being amongst the […]
