Charm As Cheap As Table Salt

Okay, my last blog was mega angry and I posted a poem condemning guns.  I was simply SICK of mass shootings in America's schools (still am...and I stand by my poem 100%).  But I'll try to post some lighter material/pretty photos/fluff this time.  Goodness, we could all use a break from trauma and despair -- … Continue reading Charm As Cheap As Table Salt
