Toyota Moms grilled Cheese TruckHey, what’s with the dude who parked in Mom’s spot on Saturday? He was mowing my lawn! No ticket, nothing! If you are the culprit in the green Toyota Forerunner, stay off Mom’s turf…or else! Or else, well, not sure what else, but it would be nice not to have had to serve grilled cheese over top of the news paper boxes. Thanks for your future consideration :)
