Girl in the Window, by Wayne Scherer
Cowboy Humor by Ben Marshall
I read somewhere recently about an antique store in Sebastopol with fair
It was in the
I believe. Good paper there. Anyway, I needed a new chest for my
The one I was usin' once had these plastic holders on each side of the
drawers but all of them were broken.
I wound up with three drawers I had to remove every time I went in to look
And I'm glad I did. In the back of the room, there was this small chest with three drawers in it and it was priced

lanterns than I have on a computer but that wouldn' the the truth.
However, I can say with my hand over my heart the unexpected truth that it's
difficult findin' a really good romance novel on the World Wide Web.
