Do Your Thing,

              Based on a note posted by Besaida C., a prisoner
              in South Florida, FL


I am a loving person, sweet, giving
and down-to-earth. The hardpack earth.
I like to have fun with
my couple. Always ready for a
challenge and I never
give up. I have so many identicals for inventions
I could combust.
I wear cologne, even here. Looking for someone
interesting, with the same qualities.
I dislike stuck-up, stubborn,
unemployed men.
