her bad side, not only will your clothes look bad, but everyone will
know your dirt!
A washer wench NEVER lies, we just leave out some details.
Currently, her lord is called Sean, and he is a very handsome and virile
Scot. He doesn't say much, but that's OK, as Keirra talks enough for
the entire Manor. They don't foresee the Manor being taken over or raided
anytime soon, as right now we are raising a baby that is half fairy
princess! As long as she is safe, the manor is safe and we want for

(In sooth, Keirra is known as Jennifer, mommy to a gorgeous daughter

and spends lots of time perfecting her skill of typing and talking on
the phone at the same time.)
