Most Girls, Some Girls, Me ~ Sept. 01, 2020

Most girls want a knight in shining armor. This girl wants a strong, faithful soldier. Just as two halves always make one whole, So it is when two meet a soul for a soul. Some girls make it easy for you, Some girls never do.

Five Months After COVID Started ~ Aug. 31 2020
