They sailed back to the Warm Earth before the Sunset Orange had turned to Fiery Red. His gal wanted to go home, she was feeling like a Dusty Rose, but he said, "No, we've got to Saddle Up, I've had a corking good idea. It will knock you on your flat end, you'll be becharmed by it!"

"Oh puhleez. What are you talking about?" Rosaline replied, she wasn't feeling in the Indian Pink and she had a headache 2775301s39178 Swarovski Elements Bead - 3 mm Faceted Bicone (5301) - Indian Pink (36)like she someone was tightening a 4 mm Plain Band arounds39383 Metal Bead - 4 mm Plain Band - Antiqued Silver (1) it.

And with that, she Needle-Filed for divorce and went off to work at the Leather Works.
