LEATHERHEAD, n - Quilly. LOLThanks so much, mi amigo, yesterday for the birthday comment. I appreciate it and I'm just glad that day is now now over. Today, like December 26th are my two favorite days. I'm as far away from the wretched day as possible :)

But I hope you had a good one.After while, Actonbell.Sorta, Quill, sure.Sauerkraut, I'm going to have to take your word on the first one. In my troop it was the silverback.Jim, every little bit helps.Anonymous, for a milkmaid?Ariel, those are called skinheads here.
