The Cleaners Lair ( Strange things in the Cupboard)


Uncle Roscoe knew that he to come clean
about his powerful minty freshness.
Truth is, He was Tammy's Candy pusher by day
and the Cleaner by night! Tammy was a nosey child.
She found Uncle Roscoe's Secret Lair in the Wardrobe.
Oh the shame.
Have a minty fresh week Y'all!

I am here. I just have so many to do before the end of the month and then July 12th. After that I may be able to plan things tentatively. It's work and it keeps me tied and grounded but it pays for bread and butter.
