In and Out Burger is the greatest fast food restaurant I have ever been to. Nice job getting that one in there.

By the way - very nicely done! I'm sure Dickie V will be proud.

I was always the Russians in bubble hockey. Always.

Dig Dug...now there are some memories right there.

If I never leave the state of California as an official residence, it will be because of In-N-Out.
