carlsbadcrawl t shirts: batch#2

A weed thrives on the ability to grow without restrictions. A manicured garden has limits and boundaries and is “weeded” to eliminate wild growth.

Televisions throb from all angles and overhead speakers put you on the field. As the weekend dwindles and the fallowing work week approaches, […]
