    Men's Ties On Women

    Another Great Thing I Picked Up From My Grandmother

    My grandmother was a shopaholic and a fashionista.  She loved to buy me clothes which was always helpful and appreciated, seeing as my father never paid child support (for any of us 5 children) and my mom bought most of our stuff second-hand. My grandmother always helped...
