Captain’s Log.  Spring Break Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1661.  This has not been the most auspicious start to the Captain’s Spring Break.    Mrs. Captain arrived to pick up the Captain for an impromptu date to see The Hunger Games.  This is where the day turned.  The movie was awesome – pretty true to the book without […]
