Rolling Home

My wife and I have taken the stay the fuck at home orders seriously. We only go out to the grocery store, take out places, and post office. We religiously wear our masks, wash our hands, wipe everything down while in the store, etc. We canceled our trip to Texas after the Lonestar Book Event… Read More Rolling Home
