This past Sunday came as close as ever to how we really love ‘em: sizzling with ultraviolet heat, manly man muscles, women who wear clothes as skimpy as jewelry, and music that put smiles on all our faces.
Tomorrow I'm gonna write a blog post about procrastination.
THE BASS PIKNIC REVIEW
Despite the few scattered showers in the early afternoon that hinted at a rainy day, last Sunday was another bright and sunny Piknic. For those who looked out their window and called it quits too early, here's what you missed out on this delightful Father's Day.
