A Jewel for Sale

Uploaded: October 01, 2008


Dear stormy chaser friend I got an idea!
If we can buy that little jewel, I know where to go!
I know a place where we don't need to chase the storms...
... are the storms that will chase us for good!
It's called Bermuda Triangle
By the way, do you know how to fly that boat?
Honestly, I don't even know how to tight my shoes!
:-))) :-)))
