Me and My Stuff…

When we were moving back to the ranch, I got rid of a lot of stuff. I don’t like to move, although I am pretty much a pro.

Don’t Pick Me…

Have you seen the ridiculous Vagisil commercial where the woman walks up to a group of her “friends” and they visibly shun her because of her feminine odor?  I am including the link below.  Is this what the media really thinks goes on among women?  And if so, the media is merely comprised of 7 teenage boys who are dictating the emotions and opinions of every television watching fool on the planet.  And before you sit down to write me …
