I exclaimed. "But how can I be sure to get <BR> the same style the next time I go to the beauty shop?" <BR> <BR> "Simple," she blithely replied. "Just say you want the top <BR> cut like a poodle, the sides like a schnauzer, and the back <BR> like a Lhasa apso." <BR> <BR> - From... Tue, 6 Feb 2018 22:24:02 EST #300 Pre Valentine thoughts. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6460063 I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent - a man who has a great smile. He has to make me laugh. I like a man who is very ambitious and driven and who has a good heart and makes me feel safe. I like a man who is very strong and independent and confident - that is very sexy - but at the same time, he's very kind to people.

My mind hasn't been able to conger up words about my activities. Mundane and running on a daily basis so here is my little blog for tonight. Please enjoy and glad you stopped by. <BR> <BR> Excuse <BR> <BR> I bet it was really tough being an Apostle of Jesus. <BR> I mean, what if you wanted a day off?
