There's a local liquor store called the Liquor Book. My brother and his slightly innocent girlfriend shop there. I told them the Liquor Book didn't make sense, but that Liquor Box was more logical. She didn't get it.

Camel towing in jacksonville is my dad's company. It's funny my buddy came up with the name and we convinced him to name it that. My mom didn't understand the name for almost 6 months...
