Dunhill Comeback!

Oh yeah, I once was pretty fond of EMP but it was so darned hard to find in my area. I, pretty much, gave up on it. I do have a few tins in the cellar.

Sitting in the dark

One of my pups, I should say, is certainly not afraid of thunder. Spotty lives anything that goes"boom! " he is also attached to me with glue so, if he sees the other two piling on, he has to get in on that too!
