How'd you know my nick-name in high school?
lmao! And SJ, I was thinking about that for a while today. I think I just may.
Don't get rid of it, I was just giving you shit.
Keeping it subtle helps...
forgot to add, these pics don't really show the true color of the paint. It's ctually a little darker. well, a TAD lighter than the first picture.

15 pics so watch out!
