Monday 24 Apr 2017She knows the sheep goes “baaa.”
The obvious solution to not getting a single photo where everyone looks good is to use four photos. Right?
Tuesday 25 Apr 2017My new kickstarter will be for a live-action reboot of “Lone Wolf & Cub” where they shop for inexpensive electronics products. Also they won’t be samurai. That might impact funding.
