We finally did it! We had talked about getting couples' tattoos for almost three years. Plus, there was the little issue of removing my ex-wife's initial from one of my existing tattoos. So we went and did it all in one stop. This past Saturday we got the initial covered, and each other'...[continue]
We just got back from another TeamUs Adventure; this one was a kidnapping for Meeks' birthday.
