Amy gets lazy.

By MCpl Amy, with some assistance in typing. I had done a very long trip around the USA and I felt I needed a break.  What’s a girl supposed to do?  Find somewhere quiet, and just chill on the beach?  Ahhh – that’s a nice idea.  No rushing around, posing on tanks or canyons or aircraft.  […]
