Playlist ~ Not so much.....
Saturday, October 09, 2010      4 comments

OK, so I'm the dinosaur that doesn't have an IPod, or an MP3 player of any sort, hence the lack of a playlist. My evening walks are with a good friend, so most of the music is good nourishing conversation peppered with my dog's howling (for no... Read more
