An Unusual Reunion

An Unusual Reunion

Salsa Pizza

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Okay, I admit it. I was sitting on the sofa with guys and I couldn’t help myself.  Maybe Larry wouldn’t leave immediately and I’d have a fun picture.   Soo the paw was placed.  And remained for a bit – enough for me to take several pix.  The phony posed picture of the placed paw. […]
