Zapp & Roger Friday….

Zapp & Roger Friday….

This is it…. The best getting out of work on Friday song in history. It’s West Coast – it’s funky – it’s lets get it popping. More Bounce makes you want to give the boss the finger – go straight from work to the packie…

So I’m sitting my ass in front of the tube last night scrolling through Netflix looking for something to watch. BTW – if you haven’t got yourself a Chromecast device yet – take it from your old pal Dot Rat….it’s well worth the 35 dollar…

Ashmont Train…

Ashmont Train…
