What more information on the Burns Family?

What Is With That Shirt? - It's an inside joke in our family.  If you've ever watched NYPD Blue you'd see that this is my Detective Sipowicz shirt - also popularized by Homer Simpson in an episode of The I was never a high school math teacher!  (And no, I'm not missing an arm! - Just a proud American that stinks at Photoshop!)

A Proud American

May God Bless America!
