Thanks for sharing! Reply Well, I keep my eyes peeled for the funny and unusual and this certainly qualified! I’m a feminist as well but I wouldn’t go so far to say that I fall under the militant category; some,women mostly, tend go a bit too far. And thanks for dropping by, it’s still a work in progress:) Reply Talk to me Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
