‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

There’s a bit of background to this.  In my truck, I never listen to the radio.  Instead, I got an old-school iPod Classic with 120 GB of storage capacity (they’d prefer we forget those good old days) and connected it to a multimedia-ready aftermarket stereo.  I learned that if you load up about 5200 songs … More ‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

Whiskers, Tango, Foxtrot?? (Or, how to combine cats)
