THEY ARE THE SAME COLORS THE PAVEMENT AND YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PICK IT UP AND OUT IF IT WAS LAYING AROUND.

  1. I am thinking about S. Lake Tahoe. I am not one to mess around. I give a shit if they are kids. They better hope the police catch them first. I have watched a full open chest autopsy and 2 ISIS beheadings. Get the idea? My life has been hard and I want to retire in peace even if some rich kid punks want to have fun. On one side I went as muscle on a dep cover drug buy. On the other I shook hands with the Chairman of a Chicago Mafia owned business. When I really needed work the Texas Mafia offered my gambling debt collections. Not much impresses me.

  2. Hmm maybe people are finally tired of having the legs woman gave them take a back seat to the car man gave them. Too many pedestrians are being murdered.
