MOUTHPIECE - April 24, 2018

Good Afternoon,

It looks like Spring has finally sprung out there, but I'm still a bit hesitant to head outside. Who's with me?!

For those of you that decided to stay in I have another wonderfully entertaining edition of Mouthpiece ready to go.

If you're looking for a satisfying existence I have a great site for you to visit and learn about those little things that make life that much better. It's totally worth it. Trust me.

I just wish that reading Mouthpiece was on that list.

Mouthing Off,
