  • Jack In the Box – Convoy St

    I couldn’t sleep.  I needed a hot apple turnover.  I needed delicious fried pastry and apple filling flavor.  In the old days I could go to Jack In The Box to satisfy my craving for a hot apple turnover.  Now I have to go to Izzy’s Cafe.  I still visit Jack on my birthday to […]
