Madison, Wisconsin Road ‘Trip’

With the Deee-lightful city of Madison, Wisconsin being in the news (it’s all we have been hearing about lately on our favorite media medium, the AM Radio, all week long), we thought it only proper to treat you, the visitor, to one of the most charming things in that great locale – the Octopus Car Wash!
