Our friends of Hit n
Run who are part of our family. Turkey, Cheeseburgers
and Italian Food. Great Legs and Boobies! Puppy Dog eyes.
Honest and sincere people. People who have stuck beside
me to provide support through the best and worst of times.
Family, and people who treat you like family.
People who think the world owes them everything. Constant
complainers, musicians who are more worried about other

People who blind copy.
