UPDATE: MISSING IN ACTION! SUMMER STORIES MEANT FOR CAMPFIRES & REPOSTING

“Where in the world is the PHENOM?!?!? Sorry Carmen Sandiego…but scoot on over and make room for another FEMME FATALE teaching humility, kicking depressions butt, dreaming out loud, being adventurous, and showing that work can be fun along this journey of life with a little hint of Nat Geo and the Travel Channel and of course your occasional splash of the Food Network.
