This is a great post. I want to do one too.

Wonder Man said...

The Mutant said...

Interesting contrast. I would do the same, but I fear that being not much more then a fetus at the time probably makes it redundant.

Damien NZ said...

Mutt - don't make me slap you around you young whipper-snapper you!

Damien NZ said...

Mistress MJ - not much more to tell - a light breeze would get me hard back then - thank G-d I'm ambidextrous and insatiable in that area :)
