How is October going for you? It is now the 8th and I have already read 6 books. Ok, they may not have been the longest books in the world. It doesn't hurt that with a change in my payday schedule, I had to relinquish the internet and cable for a month. What's left to do but to read?
No shirt, no shoes, no … problems?
Ranapia isn’t looking for love. Fun, yes. Love, not so much. But a
summer fishing holiday to laid-back Russell could turn out to be more
