Switchend slapstick!

Roll call. Hair bun. Red rose. Payroll. Bad day. Summer noon. Loyalty debt. White cloud. Pareidolia. Night shade. Blood moon. Dead river. Lost brother. Fountain pen. Cricket balls. Rain puddle.

Date Night Delight

(Dear reader, This post is a little too long so kindly be patient till the end.

The City They Call Paris
