Posted by mcm0704 on April 13, 2015 |

My plan was to research a woman to feature on the blog today and get a post pre-scheduled, since I was out of town all weekend. You know what too often happens to plans, and this one was blown apart cause I was sick all day Thursday, and just barely able to get packed and […]
