    When people get angry over what one says, you know you’re close to the truth. And Ricky nailed it, they pick at their finger nails & diminish their crimes by blaming someone.

    He deserves every cent, he’s worked hard to earn that money, not that other people haven’t worked hard, but he picked the right profession, and has the talent to go with it! Plus he loves animals. That’s enough for me! He makes me laugh!
