On The Line: Cole Gatchell of Hans' Homemade Ice Cream, Part Two

Confectioner Cole Gatchell reminds us of a certain TV-lawyer who owned a bowling alley. An occasional personal trainer who can mix a batch of mint chocolate chip-- we bet there's a pull-up bar installed in the kitchen doorway. Not only preserving the status quo, but working on ways to enhance it (Accept plastic already!), he shares a few more responses to our questionnaire.
