by Pat Tarzwell   6/9/17
I was sitting at my computer the other day, just trying to do a little work when I got the call.  It was one of those rare events where no-one else was available to answer the phone, so I picked it up and had no idea just how much fun I was about to have. More » • (328 views)

Les Deplorables
