The Perfect Date

Who doesn’t love a good date?  I’ve been dating for years and always find pleasure in them.    My wife even enjoys a good date as well.  We often do dates together – but not always.  Sometimes she has her own dates and sometimes I have mine.  Either way, we have no complaints.  In this

Win One For The Nipper!
