From the Archives: As the Barrel Turns, Episodes 26 to 30

I'm on the road again this week and thought I'd fill the void with a fast forward revisiting of the semi-popular and pun-filled serial, As The Barrel Turns. This oddball bit of Sunday silliness was a huge departure from my usual posts but a hell...
