Yes I smoke Carmels is my brand Have smoked them for years Youre lucky that you dont smoke Dont even start & youll never have to worry about quitting Its a bad habit You say that you will be soon When is your birthday So your dad got some bushes from down here in "Ammasillas" did he They came quite a distance I havent been there for quite a while

Have been waiting to go but seems like I never can get a chance We got prisoners in twice last week so we were restricted nights I hear we have more prisoners coming in tomorrow night so that means we will be restricted again What a life Will certainly be glad when this is all over Boy oh boy if I wont have a "elibhation" Woo Woo

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.
