Legal Stuff

This is going to be an off week for me. Between the power outage we had, I have to be in court like three times over the 'estate' of my wife.

The Touch - Part Five

The Touch - Part Four

She decided to hear him out and then she would explain that it was just his imagination. They had had this talk before. "Alright Todd, what did the angel tell you?"
