Merino Is Great But......

It is a huge pain in the ass to clean. I bought ten pounds of white merino fleece. It's pretty clean, not a lot of vegetable matter but it's SUPER greasy!

Stupid Mother F&*kers

I had an okay day today flying back home from Houston. I was up front in first class; so, I had lots of room and free booze.
