#Whole Lotta Creakin' Goin' On

#Hang OnDroopy #Zimmertime Blues #Good Palpitations

#God OnlyKnows (What I Came Into This Room For). Actually, there maybe a VolumeTwosome time

Her marriage to Michael Douglas, meanwhile, goes from strength to strength. Now,why does the phrase "love is blind" keep popping into our heads
